Idea for next CCP "Event"

So I was involved in the fight at Tama which started with CCP vs empire dwellers, then PL Goons a few Test and NC turned up after all the fun. have to say very fun CCP and props for getting that many employees on eve at once.

So this event got me thinking about possible events eve could have, as its not the typical game you can just slap double exp or anything on.

So my event idea.... Basicaly have CCP run a transport OP through lowsec. The transport could consist of a freighter loaded to the gills with goodies for loot, which have the standard chance to drop. CCP would have a escort fleet filled with which ever combat ships they deem fit. Players would form fleets, and try to knock out the escorts and then kill the valuable freighter of loot.

I believe the backstory would be fairly simple to implament, and could even tie in with factionwar

Anyway yeah make of it what you will, if you have idea for event, post it here you never know ccp may be listening and actualy use some idea's

They've already done that before, but more events would be nice.

Every event will start off great until the supers come in.

works fine ... until the day one alliance seems to know the freighter's route in advance.

Or people start to say:
"It is always in XXX prime time"
"XXX always get the better drops"
"XXX always ....whatever"

Events that drop loot will always be a problem in EVE.
Unless they are so widespread that everyone has a chance to participate thre will be accusations of favouritism.

thats unfortunatly very true.

What about tempoary skill point weekends, where they would give x amount of SP's free to distribute. which would vanish after 24hours, give people the chance to try new things before they train them.

This would also have ISK and be like drops from ships, as the skillpoints would allow people to perform tasks they decide to do more efficiently. Say incursion runners could max out all DPS skills for 24hours then go farming ISK.... plexers could do the same, missionrunners as well. It would benifit everyplayer.

how about many ops, at the same time. instead of 1 100+ fleet... do 10 fleets of 10 or so... all at the same time. in various places.

small, faster fleets, something more people can get involved in...

not something that pretty much just carters to the null sec blobbers that bring in super caps to fight sub cap fleets.
