In the spirit of Nemarus' post here - I propose a similar experiment on JC. One night a week, let's get as many strikes into the sky as possible. No bombers, no lolships, no FOTM T2 scouts running BLCs and clusters...just good old-fashioned X-wing style strike fighters. Any flavor, any loadout, but just strikes.

As Nemarus notes in his post, there will of course be plenty of folks who won't participate out of ignorance or disdain, but let's give it a shot anyway.

Again, like Nemarus, I suggest Monday, May 26, from 5pm to 1am EST as Strike Night #1.

Who's in?

Cool. Well, at least there will be two of us. I'll start mentioning it in game today. Spread the word if you can.

Anyway - I typically fly imp (Zuckerkorn & Bøbløblaw) but I've been playing more pub recently (mostly on TøbiasFünke). So I plan to do this on both factions. Between all three GSF alts, I have only one mastered strike, and that's the one I'll probably keep in the hangar.

I just think it could be an interesting/fun experiment, and a chance to branch out a little without getting ion'ed or mined to pieces. I'm guessing most GSFers don't have mastered strikes anyway - so I won't be too far behind the curve flying my half-upgraded ships.

I am not for the Empire. I am not for the Republic. I am for the credits and the fame.

Glad to see you're in, BD. For that one night, I won't be burdened with the maddening task of desperately trying to dislodge you from beneath a node.

Earlier today I started spamming this in pre-game chat: "PTI, just a PSA here: please join us on Intergalactic Strike Night, Monday, May 26, from 5pm to 1am EST - ALL strike fighters, all the time. No bombers, no lolships, no battlescouts...just good old-fashioned x-wing style SFs." Got some mild interest. It's a start.

Eh Strikes are my least favorite ship, but why not, I'll participate.
Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.
I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

Cool. Yeah, same, strikes are generally at the bottom of my list of preferred ships...but I think this could be fun if we get enough folks participating. The playing field will be leveled a bit, and strategy will most definitely change. If nothing else, it would be a change of pace.

Bump. It's strike night. If you're flying, please pitch in and spread the word.

I didn't have a chance to play at all last night, how did this go?
