I wanted to bring up a topic that I personally love to do, which is Liberation! For those who are not aware of what Liberation is, a shortened explanation is that it is a persistent capture and defend mode, where you start in a corner of a map, with a wide range of locations that are AI controlled. The goal can be chosen from a variety of options, such as % controlled or something of that sort, but typically map domination is a good guideline. You have to start by creating an FOB, and gathering resources. These resources can be used to build new FOB’s, vehicles, or defenses. For the most part every city on a map contains an enemy location, and they give you a variety of rewards. These can unlock a variety of things, some locations give fuel, some give ammo, and some give supply, and capturing these allows you to create supply lines between your FOB and these new locations in order to gather resources. In addition some vehicles are locked behind controlling a certain location, for instance not having a Black Wasp unless you own a location. As you take more locations, the enemies become more aggressive, and will actually attempt to retake your bases, as well as attack your FOB’s on the map with all out assaults.
After doing a little searching through the forums it looks like there actually used to be a dedicated Lib server run by Nak, which appears to have been shut down right before I started playing here. I am interested in if there was any chance we could potentially bring that back in exchange of Tanoa possibly? Perhaps not entirely replace Tanoa, but maybe Monday-Thursday have Liberation up, and then Friday-Sunday Tanoa, or even having a shorter time frame for Liberation. I have heard many on team speak discussing looking for a more objective based gameplay, where there can be set goals and ideas in mind, and in my opinion liberation is a perfect fit here. There are many options available here, some of which are modded, others can be borderline vanilla, and can allow users a change of pace all within the Nak world. I could not find quite too much about why the Liberation server was discontinued, I presume that either the demand for Zeus was just higher, or the players had moved on from Liberation. From what I have seen there is a small group of players that do semi actively play on Tanoa, especially when Altis is full on weekends. However from what I have seen, and what I am proposing, running Liberation during weekdays should not create too big of a rift, while also offering a break from Altis, without necesitating a Zeus be present. From my eyes this could bolster the playerbase on Nak, as well as help to keep the community active giving them a 3rd way to engage with Nak itself, and just help to grow the community. Even if it is run as a short time event for a week a month of something of that nature, I personally think that the support could be there.
As always, I would love the opinion and feedback on the idea, to see if anyone else is interested in this option or if I am all alone.
