# 1 Social Activity Ideas
01-13-2013, 11:08 AM
Hi as many of you will may know quite a few of us have for sometime been wanting to have more social activities to do in game,things like poker and pool. Here are my ideas for social activities in game that could be if needs be sold in c store and please feel free to put forward your ideas for fun things to do as well. Am hoping this will stimulate some significant discussion on this topic and that cryptic might take some notice

On Board ship:
  • Pool
  • Snooker
  • Poker Texas Holdem
  • Air Hockey
  • Chess
  • Paint Balling

On Social Zones e.g Risa:
  • Surfing
  • volly ball
  • flizby
  • Skiing
  • Sledding
  • Paint balling
  • Speed boating
  • water skiing
  • ice skating on Andoria
  • Pool Tables
  • Tenis

Paintballing would be cool, maybe as a PvP use for a modified version of the guns from the winter wonderland. I'd also love to see the starbase's chess board getting more use than being a statue.

Dom Jot (similar to pool/snooker, but I'm not completely sure of the rules) is canon, I'm not sure about any of the others you mention.

To add to your list, there's a dartboard (upside-down, for some reason ) in Quark's, so that'd be good too.

With games like GTA and the PSN Home thingy having pool minigames, it shouldn't be that hard to implement, and I remember Shenmue had a very good darts game back in the early 2000s, so that should also be pretty doable too if the dev team wanted it.

Thank you for your thoughts much appreciated well like I said in my original post these were just some ideas I had, I know some of them won't be feasible right now for programming reasons etc. However I do feel this is an area which needs to be expanded and not neglected am hoping that if enough people post suggestions in this thread Cryptic may just bow to public pressure and do something about this. Because the winter land sadly goes away tomorrow and so will end for the next 11 months anything really fun and interesting to do in a social zone lol

The latest Ask Cryptic has some info about this

Q: (maddinm214) When will social zones receive an update?

Dstahl: With the success of the New Romulus and Tholian Adventure Zones, we are looking to go back to our existing social zones and give them a similar treatment. One of the zones being thrown about for a possible Springtime or Summer event is to have it take place on Risa or somewhere similar where all factions could enjoy some fun in the sun.
This is merely possible future content that might not occur.

Hi, yeah that might be the case at the moment but I wanted to stimulate discussion and ideas that Cryptic might look and see which ones are feasible. We have the power to change this game for the better all we have to do is keep the pressure and eventually they will have to acknowledge this issue among others.

Maybe swimming underwater? that would make sense on Risa.

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.
