I hope they make a Week of Madness, with very little admin involvement- just monsters attacking towns, rain, "earthquakes" (using bomb scripts), etc.
But make the players create the real entertainment.
After all of the "wipe now" whining, it would be Poetic Justice to make the players EARN the Wipe by making a week of Events.
I am trying to do that, but I have run out of time.
Considering the small number of players that are likely to participate, I have more than enough crap to make several mini-events:
All Gear Provided By SantaKlaus
"Hammer Time" - rippers, super sledges, super cattle prods, mega power fists... random armor, mostly low.
"Shotgun Shootout" - shotguns, shitty armor, that's it.
"Pistolero Pontification" - 223 pistols, shitty armor, that's it.
"Frag Party" - thousands of frag grenades, dozens of grenade launchers and hundred of grenade bullets, shitty armor.
"Submachinegun Abbattior" - shitty armor, various SMGs, shitty armor. That's it.
"Incineration Nation" - A flamethrower fight.
"Laserama" - Lasers
"Plasmarama" - all things Plasma
"Tesla fiesta" - hundreds of Tesla Armors, people just zap each other in a town with large population getting in the way.
I have the goods (and/or the materials) to do this but not the time, due to nearness of Wipe.
DOCAN did elaborate that WIPE would be mid-August to Mid-September, so Devs could hold off for a couple of weeks while still keeping their word.
