So, I have mainly played in PUBs, a number of open merc nights. I am someone who loves the lore of the Children of Keresnky.
This idea has been floating around in my head for a while, as we currently do not have something like it. This is basicly a night of dueling.
I solidified this idea during a open merc night last week, i think it was. Where a few bears and a couple KOS members were vs some Clan Wolf i think it was. The map was death valley, 5 vs 5. We were IS, and had moved to the mountain south of D4, and we were on the clan side of the mountain leading to G4 when one of the guys in the unit got disconnected. One of the other players who was in a smaller mech proceded to get in the disconnected players mech.. which comically ended up him dieing in the mechs crotch... so now it was 5 vs 3. Horrible odds. So I called out to the Wolves and asked if they wanted to initiate Zellbrigen. They accepted, so it turned into a set of 3 1 vs 1 duels. We met at opposite ends of near D4, and stood about a km apart. We proceeded to call out challenges. In the end the three wolves were defeated and the IS prevailed
So, this got me thinking of starting a Zellbrigen night. Where we have a group of 10 or so players split into two teams of 5. Mechs get picked, forces line up and challenges get issued, and then all at once the mechs go at it. It now relies upon skill to take out the opponent and win the day. Too often PUBs and open merc nights de-evolve into a IS style everyone concentrates fire on one guy, and then the group moves on to the next. I am tossing this out to peak interest, and get the ball rolling. I will post up a event on the calender later tonight when I can find a time.
So what are the thoughts on a honor duel night?
