For the Midnight Crew legion in Star Wars: Force Collection. ^_^
So, we’ve had three members leave the legion. Whether they were the same person or three different people doesn’t matter at this point. The reasons why they left appear to be due to the fact that they want to be in a hardcore legion, whereas Midnight Crew was created as a casual legion. They wanted to send fighters all the time (hardcore, baby!), apparently even if that meant spending real money to do so, rather than follow strategy. Blah, blah, blah.
Since they announced their decision to depart, Malvegil contacted me with an idea that I think is a good one, especially considering our small size and casual playing membership. This would be forming a new legion from scratch and abandoning Midnight Crew.
On the upside, starting over from scratch would probably make things a bit easier for us, especially in terms of starship upgrades. Further, we could pick a starship based on strategy, not on some mindless philosophy that thinks if one isn’t sending fully charged fighters every round, you aren’t playing properly. By strategy, this would be opting for starships heavier in shields, which we didn’t do in the last starship voting. (The ones before that I think were chosen because of what looked cool to whomever was in charge at the time.)
The downside is that we’d be starting fresh in a new legion. So, if we decide to create a new legion, we’d have to make sure we spent all of our legion points with Midnight Crew (buying silver tickets, vehicle blueprints, etc.) in order to “cash out” before moving to the new legion.
The reason I wanted to put this up on my personal blog is that I felt it would be easier to have a discussion. So if you reply, make sure to note who you are in the game. ^_^
With that, what do you think? Should we move to a new legion or no?
