Missioning and Exploration Mixed with Live Events

Today I want to write something that has been sitting in my drafts box for a very long time. I’ve been waiting for the right moment to do this and the time has come. It’s about some things about EVE that I really want to see implemented. I’m gonna throw in some ideas, just like I always do, more precisely regarding Missioning and Exploration.

Missions that Involve PVP and Live Events

In my opinion one of the things in EVE that needs some additions is Mission Running. This may seem strange for most of you. I mean – why would someone ask for such thing when we do have all these PVP interactions that echo through our Universe and make us feel so good? Well, that’s exactly the point. I’m not going to talk about improvements for our regular daily Missioning dose for relaxation. I will just add something new to missions, something that would involve players engaged in missions and PVP at the same time. 

The first steps to achieving that funny thing I’m talking about may be some mechanics and interface tweaks that would encourage groups of people to gather together and do missions that would really have significant impact on storyline. Something that would involve a lot more risk and challenge as well as rewards beyond ISK and Loyalty points. Of course, if I was involved in implementing such changes, I would proceed with extreme caution and great focus on balance.
