What does WoW do for instant PVP or team based PVE?
The queuing players specify the role they will take (tank, healer or dps).
And once enough people are in the queue to form a group each player gets notified that the PVE / PVP is about to start and, if they accept, they are instantly taken from their current location to the location of the PVE / PVP event. Once over, each player is returned to their prior location.
How could this relate to EVE?
Clearly, Eve already has PVE / PVP events ready to go but, as far as i am aware, there is no way of being transported straight there?
My proposal is to create PVP events (instances), with set ships and specs (say 5 frigates on each side with set specs and set clone specs) where players can put themselves in a queue to join. When enough people are ready then the players are notified and transported straight to the event. Hence, these can happen at any time - just needs enough players to want to play.
Would seem to be an ideal way of getting different players together and allowing PVE / HighSec players to see what PVP is all about.
And something similar could happen for team based PVE.
But would this not detract from general PVP?
Not really. It does not in WoW. It is another aspect of the game that allows solo players to mix with others or those in guilds (corps) to enjoy team based events when their corp is not online.
