Vehicles In Events

Recommended Posts

During this week, a few events (including mine) have featured vehicles and more player interaction with vehicles.

 

I would like to know everyones stance when it comes to vehicles in events (this includes everything from LAATs to AT-TEs) and what makes them either enjoyable or not fun.

 

Opinions below please!

I like it when they crash the server

I actually recall an event done on Tuesday that went pretty hard with a lot of vehicles. Forgot the EM but it was done on wasteland Icarus.

 

point is it didn’t lag much but had like 3 tanks and speeders and laats

Can be fun when:

  • Specified and trained pilots drive ships and vehicles. Not some random that kamikazes for fun.
  • The vehicles have much more of an importance or benefit to staying close to. Escort missions seemingly never work because most troops charge ahead and brute force the objective that the vehicle was meant to do.
  • The NPC count is not too high when ships are being used, even a good pilot is no match for server latency, and thats why there are so many crashes.

I feel as though vehicles should not be given to regiments just because they have them by lore, because I'm sure that 99% of the troopers receiving them are not actually trained to use them, and end up killing themselves and other players.

 

Nothing would be cooler than having a few pilots zooming overhead in Y-Wings to destroy an obstacle that clones and detpacks cannot overcome alone.

When we use the events it is more enjoyable to have a huge map and like have them for a certain reason like to destroy a shield and not just have the aimlessly wander around then it can be a good thing.

 

Overall Legit give the Vehicles something to do or they are useless and not even really a good idea just a mess around.

 

Oh and

I believe the primary vehicle that causes issues is the AT-TE. Something to do with its odd collision when it comes to being near players and other props or someshit. Don't quote me on that.

 

I generally am rather guilty of not using vehicles in my events, primarily due to the fact that I keep a 'safe than sorry' approach when it comes to hosting-- but then again I'm past my prime with actually hosting events and don't quite do it much anymore unless absolutely neccesary, and honestly couldn't host a good one for the life of me. I'm a good HEM don't kill me.

I think it just boils down to, for myself personally, a case of "I've experienced too many server crashes due to vehicles" to be completely confident in including them in frequently in events.
