Missing CTA's... where did they go?

aimeesellersaimeesellers Posts: 342Member, NW M9 Playtest Arc User
I noticed we haven't seen the "Defend the Temple" or "Gate Crashers" CTA events for some time. When I checked the wiki, it shows that "Defend The Temple" hasn't been run since 2015-02-26, and "Gate Crashers" hasn't been run since 2016-02-11... while some CTA's like "Storm Front", and "Battle for the Bridge" have replayed 4 times during the same period.

Part of what makes CTA enjoyable is the variety. Along with that, are the items that drop only in those events. "Defend the Temple" and "Gate Crashers" have some of the coolest and most unique weapon transmutes in the game... and can only be found in those events.

According to the dates on the wiki... "Gate Crashers" has only made 2 appearances in NW since it started. Given the theme of the current module, I would think it would be very appropriate for it to be included. Likewise... "Defend the Temple" has only been seen twice in the game as well.

I would like to see both of these added back into the CTA "Rotation"... they are well done events, with prizes that can only be obtained by running them.

    I like the CTA events, nice transmutes and some much needed change from the grind.

    On Xbox, we have never even had "Garrundar the Vile" CTA, and just recently got "Straight to Helm" for the first time, not sure who is scheduling these events, but they need to put some more effort into it.

    Meanwhile the "Stormfront" CTA has been run several times, and "Battle for the Bridge" as well...
    (but I like the bridge one due to how quick it is)

    They did have a servey out not very long ago about all of them perhaps they are making some updates to the loot and anything else they might have see wanted.

    CTA's are a nice AD grind. 2 fast skirmishes. The more toons the more AD.

    One nice thing about the CTAs is that they allowed you to get any achievements you were missing because you leveled too quickly past some content - and missed the skirmishes.

    The CTAs solved that....well, almost.

    There is one skirmish that has never been offered as a CTA - something I find highly annoying.

    That's the drow/drider/spider one - "Defend the village"

    So, please, please, can we get that as a CTA - I'm one of those missing the "Arachnophile" title because I made the mistake of leveling up a bit too quickly 4 years ago.
    Make NWO great again, please....

    Blacklake Terror and Aberrant Assault are also missing.

    Hope they revise the series. It was only good for the two daily skirmish completions.​​

    Our live producer, with the input of other team members, sets up the majority of the calendar events. He's usually dealing with the on fire trap-heavy maze that is live environment production so I've made sure he sees this thread. Player feedback on what events are enjoyable or most wanted is always great to have :)

    This! OMG THIS! I'm in the exact same boat and it drives my OCD crazy every time I scan through achievements!!

    Please get these skirmishes (Defend the Village, Blacklake Terror, and Aberrant Assault) into CTA form at some point, sooner than later!

    I might as well add something to this as well.... Add the same changes from dungeon chests to these CTA chests. Will add a LOT more play value. Its been over a year since I actually did a CTA because the rewards become stale copy-cats time and time again.

    Yes please... the chance of getting something good, aside from the weapon transmutes and CTA specific items would be awesome. While you are at it... can you make the transmute drops ACCOUNT BOUND please? It is soooooo annoying to have to run Dread Legion 50 times to get ONE transmute I can use for the character running it... and I have to sell the rest for coppers.

    How about a Dread Vault CTA???

    Seriously though, I would love to see Defend the Village, Aberrant Assault and Blacklake Terror as CTAs. I have toons missing all three of them.

    For CTAs, I don't understand why it can't just be a set list that rotate in order. There is what - 9 plus SIege and Valindra's Invasion? Have 1 a month, therefore each CTA/Event is run at least once a year. I'm going to get mad if I see that blasted Storm Front CTA of doom again before one of the ones we haven't had on PC for YEARS. (Seriously, would it hurt to run Valindra's invasion at least ONCE?)
