As a player with sometimes small amount of gaming time per evening, it can be difficult to find “fun” activities with my corpmates who can be prepared and done quickly.
With the advent of The Abyss, came a idea : “Dungeons” limited to 5 (random number) people who every participants have a very specific role and use every mechanic of Eve.
So yeah it’s basically like every generic MMO dungeons, of my view Eve online doesn’t have this but have all the tools and assets to a cool thing.
Which form ? (i’ll try to illustrated my idea, isn’t a fixed scenario)
The same as The Abyss, you find a key and you go inside. You’re inside, you need to finish to get out.
The dungeons have a certain number of rooms, after the first one without loot you have to choose between 3 accelerator gates, which send you in different (randoms ? ) rooms (easy, hard or only loot etc …).
Each rooms give you 3 choices until the Boss (one gate remaining).
The loot is in Exploration containers (Relic & Data) with high levels of difficulty, which force a participant to choose a Exploration ship and keep it alive while others needs kills quickly rats.
I could expand more but the main idea is here, a lot of variations can be done. Can be cool if a little random can be intrude, avoiding the “ultimate teams”
How this feature can be positive for Eve online ?
Well, Eve have a lot of gameplay for large scales but not a lot for small gangs. I mean challenging gameplay for small gangs or friends who just wants to do something together without roaming.
Aswell, i would not say Pve is boring but isn’t the funniest part either, this feature can improve a little the pve in Eve.
Thanks for reading.
