This is a much needed addition to PVP content in EVE, but I would prefer to be able to select whether to do a 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 5v5, or FFA at any time rather than wait for specific days within a vast timeframe. I understand the desire to rotate the meta and keep things fresh, but not all of us have friends online to fly with at any given time. I, for one, would love the ability to solo when desired, or hop into a 2v2 with a trusted friend whenever I want, rather than being forced into a specific group size.
If I had the ability to do 1v1, 2v2, or FFA whenever I wanted, this would become one of the best features ever for EVE. PVPers would not have to roam around low or null looking for fights. Just my two cents, because honestly, the part I hate the most about EVE is the time wasted. Now I get to wait days or weeks before I get an event that I actually want to do.
You could easily rotate the meta while still giving options to the group size. For example, the meta might lock us into flying around rookie corvettes, but we could pick our group size freely. I’d much prefer that than the current system.
Alternatively, give us the ability to join the que no matter our fleet size, and to be matched up with others to create a full size fleet appropriate for the event. In this way, you’d solve your que problem and also allow pilots who do not have access to a large pool of friends to participate at any time.
