Red face Story line, does it make sense?

They mention the dropship is sending off new blood to fight off the enemies, but the dropship is sending there "blood" to both sides, Sweep Fleet (The allies) and Storm Riders (The enemy).
Think about it.. there sending off there own blood to oppose each other, does that really make sense? There supposed to be fighting off "other" players who don't come from the dropship.

To fix this..
Zone should have 2 "nations" but since it's the future, let's call them Armies.
When you start the game you are randomly placed on a army, you can switch which side you want to be on by paying with gelats.
The 2 "Nations" are Sweep Fleet (Allies - Humans) and Rebellion Army (Enemies - Aliens, Robots, Cyborgs and Humans). When you are placed on either or, you will be warped to your dropship. Both dropships look different, having a different style following there nation name.
(In case your lost, I changed the Storm Riders name to Rebellion Army)
The only map were each army will oppose each other will be on Iricia, every other map will be the same and just place you on the given teams.

Army Points can also be a idea, when you kill someone (ONLY ON IRICIA) a point is given to your team. At the end of the month, the whole army will have a vote on who should get the special prize, it should usually be the player who is the most dedicated to his or hers army.

Tell me what y'a think

The world has been left devastated and almost
entirely devoid of life (the game plus its playercount)

under the dark shroud
cast forth from the previous war. (the new staff team)

Resources are scarce and the general populace was eradicated.(again the playercount, and good updates)

In hope of controlling all strategic aspects of the
world or at least enough to efficiently maintain
their tribe -- drop ships are constantly sending
new blood off to the scorched earth(we have never battled on earth, plus we fight in the snow)
to engage
in brutal combat..., Into an endless war...
well most of it makes perfect sence, ive bracketed some points.

They could be doing a Crackdown thing. Where you fight what you created.

Okay, let's see your soloution.

Would be interesting with Nations, I agree there but not with the damn need gelats to change sides, I would prefer there be a time limit to when you can change. I would kill your last thing and change it to "Whoever has control of iricia they gain 5-10hp"

Yeah, let's totally forget the people who would vote of their friends? Should just be the top player.

I was too lazy to read most of it, so after the first two lines, it was quite interesting

I was thinking, we should have a story off, and have a bunch of people try to come up with Zone themed ideas and if flys with Stefan. Maybe we can eventually merge the story line into Zone and create some more updates and ideas. As it stands the story is kinda vague and doesn't have an option to expand into themed or other ideas, just battle ground after battle ground.

Should have an event where we all return to "THE HUMANZ HOME PLANET" and battle aliens that have taken over. Could be done as instances with like 6-8 friends at a time or something, I don't know. Would be neat if it had references to Graal's past like ruins from GK but I think Zone's tileset would limit what can be done by a lot.

You can't use Burning Hands in Zone.


But I think Zone was going to be made into a futuristic version of Kingdoms at one point.

I didn't realize zone even had a story line up to this point.
I like crono's idea of fighting aliens, though the playercount sucks so there's no point in applying this.

a player vs alien bot planets might be quite useful, implement tactics and strategies n stuff, plus no one to call a nub when they kill u.

I actually remember some old aliens that were being made for Zone. This was when Zone was the fancy new Gold server though.

That's the point of applying it, to get players back.

I highly doubt players will return to fight some aliens, though they might to play with friends.

Players aren't going to come back if nothing is done, now are they?
