Good show!

The talk of the event roleplaying reminds me of how Everquest conducted their GM events. Where the GMs would go to a pre-determined location and acted out a particular script for that area, and the players would come in and attempt to achieve the goal of the event. And along the way unique rewards would drop off the GM's characters.

The closest we ever came to such was the Dev team goofing off on Tribble-DS9 and monsterplay as the Borg and attack testers. One was during F2P testing where Gozer played the Borg Queen (first time we got to see her model nearly a year before Enter the Hive went live).

I could easily see the team doing this on the Holodeck and rewarding Dilithium, Zen points, maybe even unique Star Trek items that CBS feels needs to be rarer than Lockbox ships. Varon-T Disruptor anyone?

Thanks, Azurian!

Honestly, in retrospect, I don't know why I hadn't clamored more for this when the community was complaining about an episodic content drought. I strongly believe that Roleplay events like the ones I suggest in this episode -- where GMs, Community Managers, Devs, etc play the role of Characters in the STO plot -- would satiate the player's desire for content when the Cryptic Team is busy with other game developments.

Just imagine a Red Alert in a Sector and Captain Shon is ordering Captains around! What about a sudden Klingon Invasion attempt on ESD, and the Crew of the Enterprise is giving us orders on where to focus our attack! This would be SO EPIC --- I think it would change the face of RP in STO for the better!

There is 1 simple reason why events are not a substitute for "normal" content(and therefore have nothing to do with the content drought): you have to be online at the time of the event or you miss it. And since most people have actual responsibilities in their lives, they cant plan their day around a video game. Content needs to be available to people whenever they have time to play it. Events dont work that way.

Oh, no doubt.

When we had those KDF invasions of ESD, I actually told Branflakes that it was a good thing. Because players got excited, thinking it was a Dev / GM event. Even though some players took it too far with the griefing, in general people thought it was fun, seeing things happen that normally didn't happen.

So instead of players causing mischief, the Cryptic / PW team could be doing it. Where they turn on monsterplay and cause some mischief. Or do like you suggest that the team acts as Captain Shon (in different zones), summon some Borg Cubes and act like the Borg are making an attack on ESD.

They could even give subtle alerts like global emotes that hint something is about to happen, before the actual event.

You're right -- scheduling would be an issue. It's a double edge sword, really. I remember I missed a LOT of the Live Events in the Matrix Online because I had to work. However, sometimes the Live Events Team in MxO would show up randomly and spawn a ton of stuff; sometimes I was lucky enough to be there and interact with Characters from the franchise... and that was AWESOME!! -- Well worth the wait!

Cryptic would have to invest time and resources in order to make this work properly... Frequent events -- or Frequently Random (if that makes sense) -- so that ALL players felt they were given the chance to participate. Quite frankly, I think this would go a LONG way in the eyes of the community.
