CuppaJo in conjunction with planettr.com are looking for opinions on the best 'End of Beta' events and subsequently the best events in general.

"Here's your chance to whisper in the TR Team's ears and let them know what your thinking...

Cuppa has asked us to let her know what your favorite end-of-beta (EoB) event was (or a similar large scale event) and why you thought it was so cool! Also, what would you like to see as the EoB event on Tabula Rasa?

So speak up Soldiers! Tell us what's on your mind... and let your creativity soar! Now is the time to give the Dev team some insight into what you would consider the UBER TR event!"


I don't see why other communities shouldn't be participating, and it'd be kind of annoying for the individual communities that supposedly fit into the non-central community strategy (the pro 3rd parties strategy) to have to jump around every 3rd party site everytime suggestions etc are asked for. Trumping the idea of multiple third parties and then expecting centralized feedback from a segmented community, is asking to have cake and to eat it too, when the cake should really be shared equally.

So ladies and grunts, get those End of Beta and other event opinions pen'd and posted right here, and lets see a whole new set of opinions, lets display the benefit of our multiple communities with unique points of view that reflect our differences proudly.

Immeadiately what comes to mind is a Battle of Hoth type scenario,
which might be a little to blah... we all expected that... generic.
but it's a good fit for TR.

So I'd say, spice it up with a little FreeSpace 2, At the End of FreeSpace 2, the player was given an truly awesome choice, completely overrun by the Shivans, the United Terran Vasudan Alliance, was collasping.
Shivan dreadnought's had breached the human blockade and where in the progress of causing the solar system's star to go nova, your choice was to stay (death) and help the last few evacuee's escape, or to bail (coward) from the fight and save yourselves and your wingmates.

Either choice was entirely accceptable to the military, both netted you sweet cutscene's, but one made you out to be a dead hero, the other a soldier fighting the countining battle against the Shivan's.

I'd liked to see the moral equation used somehow at the EOB,
Let us find out the all along what we thought was the Bane offensive, was really an idiot group of Scouts, and now with the real Bane threat at our doors, we realize that saving the galaxy isn't going to be easy, and all those close calls you had before.. were just practice.

Do you stay and fight to the last, Do you take a squad behind enemies lines and try to slow the Bane down, or do you hop a shuttle/ teleporter ???

Either way, whatever choices there are.
It'd be nice if literally had to fall back, with tougher and tougher Bane spawning, coming in constant waves. Just being alive when they pulled the plug's would be great.. giving you a great.. ?
moment.

I'll really need to think... bout this one.

I can really see that adding in a moral choice would really drive home the basis of what seems to be the game right now. It fits so well and I'm glad its an idea that got brought up. Something I'II throw out there without much thought is, how about giving the choice of 8 paths to End Beta, 7 Virtues and Anarchy.

I need to think more as well, this is a pretty tough question, with no right answer, but plenty of mediocre ones. Like, I know its just my personal taste, but logging in and being greeted with VGA graphics in Ultima 6 style, with a Bane attack on Britannia to fight off ... its an EoB idea that really appeals to me.

More to come.

Picture this... Foreas, 02064 ... The Bane are rampaging, the war seems at an end, all seems lost. Suddenly, from the behind the shouts and screams, the sounds of carnage and death, you hear it ... growing louder ...

Who's the leader of the club, that's made for you and me!

Hey! there, Hi! there, Ho! there
You're as welcome as can be

Mickey Mouse! Mickey Mouse!


The screen slowly starts to fade to black...

Forever let us hold our banner
High! High! High! High!
Come along and sing a song
And join the jamboree!
M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E!


The old ones are the best ones.

Ha ha, these are great ideas! I'm one of the admins for the PlanetTR site so I'm gonna go ahead and post a link in our End-of-Beta thread to come check out this one as well.

I really do think we as fledgling community sites need to share what little wealth of information the TR team sends us so that no one site is left in the dark. Hopefully we'll be able to find common posting ground on some future official TR forum.

Awesome Harlequin, much appreciated. There are so many commonalities between all the communities, I'm sure once the game launches, there will be so many opportunities to engage each with each other.

On Deep's idea, we could go a short step further. You have the choice and when you're down to the last base/sanctuary in the beta, it goes to a cutscene (all Bane/player action stops) and the Bane (not sure what they have that could do it) destroy the portal off of the planet. You then fight until everyone is dead (EoB player wipe ). Just a thought.

I think we should just have a big party with the Devs, they can mingle and select congregations to talk to through out the day, have a big question and answer session mid way through out the day, tell some lore building stories, initiate a few events and competitions then land drop ships for everyone to head back to earth in a last ditch effort to reclaim the planet and just have the game fade to black on the journey.

I don't know, I really like the idea of everybody dying. Not cause I want everybody to die but a hopeless situation would be cool and test the will of some.

Edit: Besides if they do have the massive Bane raids on AFS bases, all the previous training from those raids could be implemented into prolonging the fight and allowing more transports to escape from the base(s). (not sure if transports exist between planets if its only portals...would make sense because the portals had to get to the planets somehow...unless portals can be opened to another planet without a standing portal on the recieving planet for a certain period of time to allow technicians and troops to get through....I'm thinking too much probably and blabbing again...) I just really like the idea of waves upon waves of Bane pouring upon our defenses slowly (or quickly) plastering everyone in the base. Of course, from what I understand of the Bane this is a tactic they would like/follow, but I'm no guru so correct me if I'm wrong.
