An idea that I thought would be interesting would be to have a kind of server wide event that mimics those of a Warcraft 3 map, Undead Assault 2. This is a zombie survival type game where you level up and complete missions. The mission that could be incorporated to replace or be coupled with airdrops is the convoy mission ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=MIAdQni06uw#t=1767 , a general look at what it is). Where the party has to escort the convoy across the map. This would be interesting because it would take a large amount of people to interact. This could also be grouped with that if a player is pvped while the event is on, the convoy would turn hostile towards that player. The event could also be taken from the opposite stand point and the players on the server would have to try to overrun the convoy to obtain the high level of resources from airdrops.
