Hi, I was talking with other members of my fleet the other day and we talk about how Risa make a good place for RP. I propose that you should add a tailor on the regular Risa, so that we could use the swimwear there. But another suggested, why not leave the resort there? The events are just for the festival,, that's OK but why don't leave the infrastructure there and at least the tailor and dabo table.
Agree this is a fantastic idea; it's great that the Risa Summer Event map remains accesssable subsequent to the event, and I am not saying otherwise.
It would, however, be great for us to have a REASON to visit the map outside of the event months. Don't get me wrong - it's great to be able to randomly beam down, activate my floater, and go for a fly. But the appeal is very limited when that's ALL you can do. This will be even more evident with the boards - they just don't seem to have much appeal outside the race. The observations of others will, obviously, differ from my own - but my experience has mostly been that I don't see very many players on boards outside of the race.
So - to the Devs - as others have said, leave the race in place (outside of the event). No reward is necessary; just PLEASE leave it place so that we have something to do with our shiny new boards beyond the VERY limited appeal of high-speed sightseeing!
