    The Best Event experience in SWG was the phase four Sith Shadow attacks on Village of Aurilia.  The event lasted for 60 minutes, followed by a 30 minute cool down.  The combat was RPG (Tab Targeting & 1-12 skill casting), players worked as a team.  The simple AI was viscous.  It was better than any PvP seen in the last 15 years.

     

    And it's gonna happen again in 30 minutes anyways...

    Boy: Why can't I talk to Him?
    Mom: We don't talk to Priests.
    As if it could exist, without being payed for.
    F2P means you get what you paid for. Pay nothing, get nothing.

    Actually, if you don't stop the bandits. They will take over, and then you have a new event to kick them out. At least that's usually how it works.

    Mechanical, repetitive events are just as shitty as any other content.  Vapid and empty.

    The best, most meaningful events are player driven.

    Liked the comic.

    Hell hath no fury like an MMORPG player scorned.

    Player-driven anything is exceedingly rare in MMOs these days.  So while the 'mechanical, repetitive events' are not necessarily the perfect solution, they are MUCH better than the current vacuum that is events that are 'player-driven' IMO.
