**Note to Stratics As the late receptions ive recieved for this and some other things have been blad or downright crude i was curious as to your thoughts on this. BTW: I am on Ahazi. I've been tossing around the idea of putting together a group..not sure if it would be a guild. But a group of people who's sole job is to be hired out by whoever to accomplish a task that they need assistance in. The group would take rebel contracts for one week. take a week break then take Imperial contracts. Acting more like mercenaries than anything. Not only could this improve experiences such as mentioned by the thread starter but it could assist groups in all aspects such as heroics/instances/POB (JTL) missions and such. Fee's would be based on player level/mission difficulty/how many people needed and professions needed. It could work in theory but getting a specific group to fill those needs would be a more trying task but it could be benificial to all. Being under contract each individual working for the company would get a weekly paycheck depending on what they did. The more instances that they did and such would reflect on their pay. As well as complexity and any other variable. As Jedi are numerous we would be looking for LS only as we all know DS is for PvP. Anyone might try to argue that but when it comes to PvE LS wins. So the need falls to other professions. Members of this company could remain within their respective guilds and if they choose remain on their respected faction indefineatly. Provided we were able to bring in say. 1 Imp/1Rebel for every 2 2- Jedi 2- Medics 2-Commandos 2- Bh 2- Spies This setup as made example above would allow a member team of the company to be hired out. Contracts placed would have to be booked and arranged with enough time to ensure both the Company and the payee has plenty of time to arrange their RL in order to attend the pre-arranged deal. If the Company for whatever reason fails to arrive or deliver the said troops requested then the company will pay out an unfixed sum as damage pay. The payee upon making a booking will pay a small retainer fee that would not be returned if the payee failed to arrive. Example of a contract request: Hello, I and my friends wish to contract ----------- for an instance run of EK. Date: -- -- ----, Time: --:-- Troops needed: 1 Medic, 3 Jedi, 2 Commando's Example of a contract response: Greetings! Your requests has been recieved and delegated. On this day of--,--,---- at the time of --:-- We will provide you with the following: 1 medic, 3 Jedi, 2 Commando's Our retainer fee is 1 million credits Fee's for troops: 1.450000 The breakdown of this is. 1 Medic 500k, 3 Jedi 3x150k 2 Commando's 2 x 250k Mission fee: 1.5 mil. Total: 3.950000 So when you break this example down your getting 5 members at quite affordable prices to join you in a quest. Another thing this company will not do is collect loot. The loot is there specifically for the Individuals who hired us. The only loot the company will ever obtain is group loot. For example the "Jinsu" schematic where everyone in the group can get it. Anyways this is my idea. As i have seen none like it before and if there have been they have failed i would be curious to know why they failed and what one could do to make it work. Ideas and suggestions welcomed. As well anyone looking to add a bit of excitement and something different to their game lives. Contact me.
