In-game name: RC CO Boss/104th SSG Dion
Type of suggestion: Event server
Reason for suggestion: so, as Drewbie so thoughtfully teased, we have a slot for an event server. I'm making a suggestion post on the forums so that it can be discussed more.


Pros:

the ungodly amount of time briefings take no longer become a problem, event hosts can pop in and get everything set up before the player's arrival

potential to bring in players as not many servers have an event server

once the server becomes more active, regimental events could become a thing! for any staff/builder willing, specialised events can be set up with catered objectives for
the regiment participating. special missions for ARC, RC, SC. Big battles for 501st and 104th, Expansive vehicle combat for 212th. lots of possibilitys are opened up with event servers


Cons:
may be confusing for new SWRP players

transitioning to an event becomes less seamless, having to leave the game and join the event server rather than a simple map switch

people might see the main server and go "fuck me that's dead", not realising we're all vibing on a SICK event server. (this is the same reason we'd need more activity for the specialised events, as splitting the players between the servers will not look good)

harder to get total gametime as gametracker will split between the two servers. small con.

as of RN I dont thing we need an event server I know you guys like to drop nukes and all but I belive for now there is no need to make seperet missions and use the server for it (I know event server will be used for more then one regimetn missions) but whats point of having a server if we dont start making special missions for regiments ( ARC resuing fleet as side mission, Sc killing tactical droid so it will not send data about the batlee etc.)
I am over all neutral but I would suppport the event server but as I said whats point of having one if we dont make it special (we cloud use it for bigger sims as well)

Non of what you said made any sense what so ever.

The entire reason people really like the event server is so that we can base events off of the enjoyment of the different regiments and not having to force everyone into event where the purpose of the event only suits a certain regiment.

With an event server we could have full on events just based off air-combat in the case of 212th, whilst not having to half-arse it with the other regiments bringing the overall quality of events up by a huge amount.

Overall i see no reason for not adding an event server other than the fact that we might not be able to support it with our player count which makes Drewbie not want one.
Like i said its fully up to Drewbie, so if he wants it there is no justify-able reason not get one.
