well, while out, i was thinking of ideas for Worldmeld and stuff. Then Something hit me!
A way to make "City Raids" in World of Warcraft fit in, without having the setting or lore screwed beyond belief
I present to you, War Games!
Yes i know theres technically already something with that name in WOW, but i cant really think of a better term for my idea
anyways, lorewise, "War Games" are simulation/Time pockets of raids on cities and defending them, basically a two way excercise in case a City comes under attack, or needs to be burned to the ground.
To put it simply, PVE meets PVP in the guise of "Instanced City Raids"
Players can play either attack or defense.
The attackers objective is to fight the bosses of the city their attacking, and eventually take out their respective faction leaders
Defenders on the other hand, well, fight to protect their lords and ladies.
Players can be assigned to either side.
Defenders "win" by fending off the "Attackers' long enough, or enough to "break their morale"
this can be done in several ways
either just holding the enemy back and helping NPCs
or taking on the attackers directly and "wiping " the attacking parties enough time to break their morale
every attacker "wipe" would cause the "Morale Timer" To decrease, in addition to attacking players perishing or other conditions
Attackers win, well, by sucessfully defeating the Faction Leaders, Attackers can get assistance from fellow NPCs laying siege to the city, and can get buff's and the like to get ready to take out the faction leader.
To keep things fair, IE Keep the defenders from just huddling up in their faction leaders room. there may be other victory conditions for the attackers other than killing the faction leaders
from taking out NPCS
to laying waste to Locations with siege weaponry.
as for rewards, well, mainly PVP related loot
but there would be mount rewards as well.
Here are some War Game Ideas
War Games: Siege of Stormwind
War Games: Assault on Orgrimmar
War Games: Fall of Ironforge
War Games: Razing of Thunder Bluff
War Games: End of Darnassus
War Games: Purge of Undercity
thanks for reading ^^
PS: This is just as much a WOW idea as it is a Worldmeld one.
