Alternative Content for problematic Events like SotS.

While the loreis interesting, the pve content is incredibly stupid. Why would they anchore research facilities all over the place and not just in their home regions. They cant even properly defend themselves (thats a systematical problem because npcs... blabla)

Also the redditthread

Instead i propose a totaly different experience that actually fits into eve (taking/choosing sides, sandbox, ...):


  1. Every Account can redeem an "Serpentis Event Datacore"

  2. Serpentis' LP stores have serpentis shipyard and research facility BPCs.

  3. These are produced with citadel-components. and ONE of these datacores.

  4. Anchor them like citadels. They are just smaller. (except WH maybe? sorry.)

  5. It has a vulnerability setting. 3hours per week maybe more.

  6. each hour that it is online counts towards a ticket in a lottery of who gets the Capital BPCs. Example: 217 hours of structure online time in the event time, means an estimated chance of receiving the blueprint of (217/[total hours by all players])5+5

  7. on destruction, the Datacore is dropped. Therefor, another can be buildt therefor enough demand to sell it on market.


optional:

  1. There could be serpentis NPCs guarding it.

  2. These structures might not be docked in.

  3. OnlineHours gained are multiplied by effective standing of corp, before added to pool.

The other side (The Scope):

  1. Everything stays the same (problems and issues with the scope thingy are offtopic, such as rewards for points) , but....

  2. Remove Sites.

  3. Remove reward for sites, instead give points for blowing the structures up.

  4. Because Points and also Player's incentive to guard their own structure, structures dont need to drop any loot.

  5. also since these structures have some value, the incentive for players to blow them up themselves is neglegible.

  6. Service by Scope: Spend points to locate vulnerable structures in range. (that is not your own... blabla)

.... effects?

  1. structures will be like sites, just with Players around them.

  2. these will be all over new eden in remote corners. (maybe the best place for anchoring)

  3. incentive to have LP and Standings with Serpentis before the event starts. So in the pauses between events there is an incentive to work for that next one.

  4. PeeVeePee

Thanx for reading. CSM, what do you tink?

Ideas are like Seeds. I'd chop fullgrown trees to start a fire.

Because you haven't explained anything about why you hate the event, why you feel your suggestion is better, or what you expect to actually happen when a bunch of structures get anchored in the middle of nowhere. Or how that's better than the current system. (Hint: structure grinding is never fun)
