For players who enjoy PvP, this game presents lots of exciting opportunities as other players' compounds essentially present an endless stream of challenges.
However for those who are not as into PvP, the game can become repetitive after finishing all building upgrades, attaining max. survivors, completing all tasks. Now I know the Alliance system adds more tasks and things to work on, but I thought it might make things interesting to add some new PvE content that (hopefully) is compatible with the current game infrastructure.
Here's one idea:
-Renegade/outlaw bands: basically adding AI controlled "outlaw" survivors that you can fight on special missions. One (or multiple) of the lootable locations on the map will have a randomly generated "outlaw band sighted" mission that the player will have the option to run a manual mission on. Upon entering, the map will be exactly the same as normal (either with or without zombies) but with AI controlled outlaws and a special container near the end. This gives non-raiding players the ability to participate in gun fights and a break from endless slaughter of zombies. The outlaws will spawn at your level or higher and will be very dangerous and difficult to kill. You must kill all the outlaws to get to the special loot container they are guarding. The loot container will have a significantly higher chance of generating a high quality item. You only have one chance to take out the outlaws, if you fail to kill the outlaws (either all your survivors are downed or you choose to leave/abort the mission, they will escape (the mission will disappear) and you must wait for the next one to regenerate.
Some of you may think why not just man up and raid other compounds for gun battles? I do raid other compounds, its fun, but I'd be much more excited about coming away with potentially better loot as opposed to just fuel and points. This could be a good way to have both, especially for players who don't want to raid but like the idea of fighting against oppenents that can shoot back.
Let me know what you all think...
