Weekly Events

by Cmdr_Vauss » 29 Dec 2015, 21:32

In the past on other Free Worlds games there have been events on the weekends. I think it would help a lot with server activity and getting the mod out to more people if we start doing these scheduled events. How many people would be interested?

We used to have weekly events, I ran them.

When activity died interest fizzled out, that and they took forever to set up.

If there is enough interest I'll start running them again.

In other FW servers, they would do campaigns where the two main factions who take turns calling out targets and the other team either had to defend them or also try and take them. They were also all set at a certain time on saturday that you could set your clock to.

If we could get faction leadership and get the word out to all the players that we will start this up, it would easily get people to come back.

Campaigns have been tried and are too time-intensive when they're getting replaced by the influence system anyway.

Start with just events (weekly/biweekly) and see if that works first. Start small.

Influence system will replace those Vauss.

Frankly if we did said events or activated the influence system now the GE would stomp in the NR and take over the Galaxy because they have twice the numbers and fleet size not to mention veterans. Not trying to be a dick but we tried and that's what nearly happened, it didn't because the campaign was called off.

I'm fine restarting weekend events but we won't have stakes, it would be for fun. If they take off we can tie them into an RP campaign so there are sort of stakes but we won't have to worry about changing the in game universe.

When will the influence system be put in place? Because that could be tied into events some way. Maybe just over the small bases in the back water planets
