nuke? Naw, that'd be horrible. It would be silly to reward a team that dominated the others with something capable of mass destruction. It just furthers any power gap between sides. That, and imagine it's your first day in game and you get nuked. You're not gonna stick around much, are you?

I'd prefer daily events with an outfit/empire reward in mind. Week long and you're looking at a LOT of manpower, and I'd rather 7 smaller events instead of 1 large one. Little things like a GM run Vanu archeology team couriering newly developed implants back to VS sanctuary. TR and NC are trying to raid the convoy and steal the items, while VS is trying to protect them. The empire that captures the truck gains access to a new form of implant 2-3 weeks before the others do or something. Cool little things like that.
If I were new to the game, and one side just nuked the first base I went too, my first reaction would be WTF??

My second would be to ask someone WTF?

If I learned that had been the culmination of a month long, three empire struggle to gain the use of 1 solitary nuke as part of a GM run story/event... I would be thinking pretty fricken cool!

Think about that tho, over a one month period, each side has to fight for control of three-6 whatever points that once all gained for a long enough time, would allow the construciton of a single, solitary thermonuclear weapon... and then the target is decided by say... 13 of the top CEP holders in that empire... Delivered by a special high speed fighter given to the best ranked pilot... that would be hella cool.

Besides.. it can only wipe out anyone/vehicles at one single base on one single contenent. One free base in the grand scheme of things would be nothing.

What about some sort of natural event, like deadly thunder storms, or earthquakes?

1 day events would be way too short. You can't expect the support team to spend time making 150-200 events every year, that's insane.

I never said they would only last one day. Maybe they could be on and off over the course of a week.

Not your fault, but what about natural events? Does anyone think they could work? Ideas?

Well i'm sure they will already include the classic rain/snow. I dunno about quakes and tornadoes and such, might be doable but it seems harder than a "small" competition. Would be really cool though.

I wonder if there will be sandstorms in the desert regions.

1 day on 30 is a damn short event. Would also mean they would have to make them on the weekends or people with school and work couldn't participate.

1 week just seems to make much more sense to me. I guess it just depends on the people.

If these events took up alot of the game time, they would make PS just like any other FPS with a timed game. What I wanted is something else to do, but wouldn't happen to often.

1 day a month wouldn't play a big role on the game much. But 1 week a month would. Everyone would spend the other days of the month getting the bases they need for that one event.

Maybe that would be a good thing. Why else should I take a base?

1 week sounds perfect to me. Not so short that a lot of people will miss it, but not so long that people start to get sick of it. But then, the question remains: what exactly would this event be? My idea would be something like a very big BEP reward to everyone in the empire which controlled a specific area the longest total time within a week? It's very simple and it isn't so extreme that it would screw up the game, like a nuke would. Mainly thought, it would draw alot of people to one area, causing some truly fantastic fights.
