Post Colosseum content
Colosseum Area:

Can only enter solo, each class has different weighed challenges, level by level. When you die, you're booted out.

Rewards would be neurobound, some gear non class specific, some class specific and some hull class specific.

Challenges could be via missions in a closed environment, waves of ai, etc.

Some content could be added for 2 people of the same class for 2man colosseum action.

The point of this is to make the ai very challenging for the classes: e.g. seer ai when you're a sniper, sniper ai for SD...

You would have to pay a fee to get into the colosseum, 500m per run per character, this could be used to fuel JJ's famous inflation!

Also, please avoid putting the adum shield ai in here, we players hate to spend 25mins to kill something.
Content like zebra prince that give 100%resist aura would be cool to have in there to have players use their heads to find a target sequence.

Thoughts?

Oh, and ai in this zone would not drop anything, would keep the area clean for less lag and more killing action.

Some roids would be available to fuel up, rare enukes roids hidden up in some fields, no straight prom, fermium - would drop sometimes -> forcing players to use mobile converters. Unstable nukes (would require a nuke stabilizer bought somewhere, making hull management important for later levels)

roids would become rarer and rarer with time.

Many solar systems in the colosseum with some far away (25k out?) that have rich roids, but also very powerful foes protecting them (GSAs and seer ai?)

That's a really good idea. The programming part of it wouldn't even be that hard. We'd just need a new kind of wave spawner, and some kind of instance tag to boot someone out when they die.

It would be a lot of content work to make all the content.

This should probably go in the next wave of suggestion voting.

why 500M? why not make it so that you can pay diff amounts for diff rewards (e.g. lower cost -> lesser items, higher cost -> awesome items)? variations in this might give people more incentive to do them more often.

Kind of like selecting a difficulty on a poker game right? The harder you play, the bigger the other players put out.

The one for engineer is currently on test server. Making the waves for other classes will follow comments and testing of the engineer version. Bobbo is in charge of this stuff.
