    So what would you do?

    Many I have talked to are either bored or frustrated with this event for a variety of reasons. And, obviously, based on forum posts and in-game chat there are many perceived issues. So what would you do to make future events more creative, interesting and enjoyable? Is it just a matter or more/better rewards, more Arkfall frequency, different weapons, new enemies, new synergies? Something else? Or does the whole Defiance event concept need to be re-thought?

    What would re-energize the player base like the first Hulker Hell or Solstice Strike did....just wondering what you think.

    For me personally better rewards are a must, before anything else. There's nothing more disheartening than working hard to get a decent score, only to be rewarded with some rubbish blue mods, while someone who shot one mob and then sat in the corner gets an OJ.

    Number one change scoring to be purely damaged based and B - tie rewards to score.

    Find a way to use scrip/ salvage to buy arkforge. It will let people with a lot spent a lot and will have a leveling effect on the "economy"

    More chaos, the HHs were fun cos so many hulkers and they moooove, out of the 3 we have now the CC is the most fun, tho the loot is the worst, but there are lots of Monarchs and they moooove. The rest are pretty much stationary bullet sponges.

    The best idea Ive heard thrown around is a Major for the gulanee, they moooove, that imo would be the most fun idea to implement.

    Second would be deathmatch pvp free for all in a bunker map, no teams, no cap points. Expanding on the deathmatch to king of the hill, Im thinking on top of the little box room on the top level of the carpark in SV.

    Thats whats in my "wish it would happen, but prolly never will" box.

    What I would have liked to have seen is different weapon drops of the same synergies.... for example(s) a Plate Slicer Tachmag, Heartbreaker Ground Pounder, a Radiant Solstice Particle Repeater etc. I don't think it would have been that hard to implement. While still allowing for some interesting weapons to chase. Could keep the "named" weapons the same but providing a different variety of guns would have been great.

    But the number one thing would be new enemies! (Shrill???) Or a new mashup of enemy ark falls. I mean how about a Scrappers, Raiders and Niners joint invasion! Imagine the time people would have with a ton of suped up Forges, Jack Legs and Tankers running about all trying to eliminate Arkhunters. Then add in the Shooting Arms seen during a Progenitor Ark Fall Final (with the appropriate buffs). That would be fun.

    Or how about a different kind of ark event??? Something like making the use of the Heaven Sent map in which there scores of Dark Matter or Volge that a team of 10-20 have to clear out. Make the enemies spawn across the map like these other ark falls but make it inside.

    Or even an open field (or what ever we can constitute as open) march like an expedition but outside (think some of the Gunslinger maps but longer and more scores of enemies. And make it an expedition ark fall.

    On a simpler note I wish that Trion would implement away to save progress in Expeditions to make the chase for loot there more obtainable. I mean if the loot drastically increases at Tier 30+ Rd 8+ it would be great to save your status if you have to log off at Tier 32 Rd 10 because you know real life. But then I would like to restart at that same level when I can play a day or two later? What is the harm in it? The level is tougher (much tougher than at Tier 23). There is more of a chance to lose your HR so it not like Trion is losing out that way. And actually if they wanted to monetize it more (i know dirty word) I would pay 1 HR to save my status so I could come back at the same difficulty Tier and Rd after a server reset. But that's just my 2 scrip.

    This event is okay, but it would greatly benefit from higher quality rewards and an increased frequency of major arkfalls. As I've said before, the fact that three types of events are competing for face time means that a player is lucky to find 2 of the same one on a given day. If the arkfalls appeared more often, we'd have a much better chance of finding the mods and weapons we're looking for rather than just collecting from whatever type happens to show up.
