Mark II global fac vs fac event
Here's the outline for an event I'd love to experience.
Release the Mark II Drone and have it only travel through links*. No link and/or portal fac change = Drone is stuck (not returning home).
Each agent gets a (fairly) random portal assigned some where in the (playable) world. One only you know (if you don't share intel).
Move your Mark II to your portal ASAP through you own skills/luck and/or fac collaboration.
Drone hack the specific portal and earn a) a vr superdrop b) points to your faction, and c) a part of a decoding puzzle.
(At this point you could get a new selected portal and so forth until the event is over, or one trip is what you get.)
When the event is over the fac with most points win (including special points for solving puzzles/codes and other possible side tasks).
Mark II gets send back home/ is killed off.
OK so things can be elaborated/developed, but that's the main concept. Any takers ?
*one might consider all traveling to be possible, not only by links, but links making it possible to travel longer/faster by skipping portalsteps. Also one might consider being able to move to closest portal in all directions, to prevent getting stuck due to vast portal empty areas - like open sea. You get the picture
