Mini Event Idea
I've posted this in our new forums (http://www.sunshineforums.com/forum/index.php?mforum=freelanceuninco)
And i thought id replicate it here.
Little idea, seeing as we spend a fair bit of our time on little mini hunts, how about this.
The .. ta da da... mini event.
Right, the idea being, we select a constellation/region/area of systems as the raiding target.
CVA get informed about the area of the raid.
A time limit is set (say an hour)
Matari objectives is too free x number of slavers from transports.
CVA objectives are too stop this by any means possible.
Whoever wins gets a <to be="" decided="">award of somesort
Advantages of this is that their are few rules, apart from that we can only free slaves from transports. And it doesnt need much setting up apart from selected region, award, and go
Also a good .. initiation thingy for new guys maybe?
Disadvantages -security hits from raiding transports. But it would be fine for a few runs.
What do you think? I'll post it in the PIE forums too.</to>
Perhaps with such a surplus of CVA pilots, some could be assigned to fly Bestowers themselves. Have them running through high traffic systems at the time of the event, unescorted, of course. Just another day of slave trading.
This would solve the security status hit problem. It would also add a degree of realism, in terms of the CVA recieving a distress call from the transports that come under attack, rather than having to jump from system to system just guessing.
Obviously rules would have to be set in terms of where the CVA fleet begins. If they're only 1 jump from the first transport to come under attack, that's no fun. Also, rules might have to be set preventing the beslower pilots from safe-spotting. The minnies should have a more or less equal chance at shooting down the transports as the CVA has of defending them for this to be fun.
