Clan Management and Contest System
Clans are playing a very big role in Freelancer. So they do for Crossfire. Clans often keep the role-play running or initiate new role-play situations. They help new players and those who belong to their members. In other words "they are important". It is time to give something back to them
In Crossfire we have many clans. Most of them belong to the official server clans and therefor own a home system. We were thinking for quiet a while about something that would allow clans to expand their territory and take indirect benefit from it.
No we do not wish them to control all the systems and tell players what they can do and what they can't do. That is clearly not going to happen!
We have developed the Crossfire Contest System to allow clans to gain control over satellite systems around their clan system. These systems are considered supportive systems for the clans while none of the clan rules apply there. The clan itself takes only the benefit of FAME and financial profit from these systems. The bigger a clan's territory is, the bigger will be the income for that clan.
In order to take control over such a system the clans have to fulfill special tasks as delivering special goods from their home system to the planets and stations of that new system. Delivering supplies grants you the loyalty of a system.
What one clan can do can also be done by other clans. The clan which supports a system best will gain control while the other clans just can do another try. Disturbance of supply routes are of course expected and will for sure lead to some serious weapon fire at the border lines.
That's the new Crossfire Contest System, active on the upcoming Crossfire 1.9 server.
We hope you will like it.
