We have been graced with a high honor! CCP Dragon personally reached out to me this morning as a result of our participation in Live Events and Live Actor Events, including Gallente Federation Day!
He wants our opinions, ideas, and contributions to discuss how CCP can best orchestrate a Seasonal Event (i.e., Event accessible in the Agency system) and a player-run Live Event for Gallente Federation Day!
Federation Day Seasonal Event, Summer Solstice, June 19 – 3rd July
Player-Run Live Event (June 23, 1500 EVE Time, Luminaire Battle of Caldari Prime Citadel)
Years ago, a pilot named “Alain Colcer” started observing Federation Day.
So, CCP wants us to discuss who players could fight and under what circumstances for the Seasonal Event Agency mission, as well as what trinkets and items players might like to receive during said missions and player-run events to coincide with Federation Day.
Seasonal Event Agency Mission
We’re looking at beacon mission sites, much like Guardians Gala.
So far, some ideas we discussed are:
-Serpentis pirates stirring up trouble
-Gallente nationalists disrupting the affairs of the Federation, preparing heavy weapons and arming militants
-a connection to Caldari black-ops, aggressors, or State-sponsored anti-Gallente terrorism (i.e., Caldari State Templis Dragonaurs) as revealed by site escalations
Out-Of-Character chat channel mentioned Caldari State Templis Dragonaurs might serve as appropriate opposing forces.
Federation Day, The Player-Run Live Event
Federation Day 2018
Location: Luminaire VII - Battle of Caldari Prime Citadel
Date: June 23
Time: 1500 EVE Time
We will host the following special events:
- Ship Parade - show off your favorite ship, it doesn’t have to be Gallente, but if it looks pretty, allthebetter!
- Mr. and Mrs. Federation - submit your character portrait during the event, to be judged on the best-looking male and female attendants to win prizes!
Dress in your best! Show off your best ships! Bring your fireworks, drones, lasers, and festival launchers!
I have reached out to our favorite radio stations to play music for us and run notices.
CCP Dragon discussed including theme-based items (like the Christmas gifts of the past).
Given enough time, CCP is willing to explore creating in-game items like trophies for winning Federation Day races, winning the Mr. and Mrs. Federation contests, and other trinkets based on what we discuss.
Please respond here so we can organize all of our thoughts! Let’s get started on this early to give CCP enough time to put all the pieces together!
