Thanks for the background story (I didn’t knew that).
I understand that FPS PvP is not the a strong part of the game but it’s really fun. But I’ve seen less players joining the event due the issues I said before.
In my case, I always enter with an Epic Armor (that’s a must) and even with others having an Epic Armor on them, once I’ve kill them once or twice It’s really easy to overwhelm them by moving quickly to their position and killing them, leaving them with no chance to grab a weapon and fight back.
This lead to players quitting the event. Specially when someone goes around trashing all items so no one else can get any, even though there are some boxes that “always” have weapons in it.
I know being smart it’s your biggest weapons but some might find that as bad sportsmanship. All and all, I love the FPS event, even when I’m loosing I take it as a challenge to turn the table over, but most of the time It’s almost impossible to do so. Almost every player that I’ve talk about this agrees with me (like 8 or 10 so).
I like the suggestions from the ones that have reply to this discussion:
@TacoIsland : “…one way doors to prevent player farming…” - Sound Good, but you might find someone waiting for you on the other side of the door, It’s not bad if you can gear up inside.
@Bob : “trap doors…” - Not sure what this means but if it’s having an enclose roof with trap doors for you to fall back into battle being able to land away from your enemies, I like it.
@Hayawen : “…spawn spots up high on platforms…exits from all directions so less camping possible…” - I like this, very similar to what I’ve added to Bob’s comment.
@RexXxuS : “…more safe spots or even on “golden spot” where everyone has to fight for an Epic Armor…” - I like this one, I would add an Epic Armor as reward for the event winner to make it more appealing for others to join.
All of this suggestion would improve the FPS Event experience.
Since I’m a little ambitious I would suggest the following (if it’s possible):
-A bigger scenario with all or most of the suggestions made here.
-Random scenarios, maybe using some of the structures from the missions in the ECC (like the Tower from the “Loot & Survive” Mission)
-Two scenarios to choose from 1) The Quake Arena and 2) An open field with a perimeter, having spread loots all over and broken walls and fox holes where you can take cover (maybe 2 or 3 simple HVs with an open front seat and only one gatling gun on top)
Voting for which scenarios with Ev:Start:FPS:A and Ev:Start:FPS:B
