Yes, something like that.
It doesn't necessarily have to be hex-based, but we need multiple locations in which control can be "flipped". Points could be awarded for participation in flipping them and rewards given every week or so for such accomplishments.
The best thing I've ever seen, to spice up PvP, was in Warhammer Online. The open pvp areas were ghost towns until rewards were put in. Considering that these rewards were some of the best items you could get for that tier, everyone started playing there. So the carrot & stick rewards would have to be there, too.
