It could happen, if they contact me with interest. I'm too busy working on the roadmap now though!

Any chance we can get some of the PGI team playing for this event?

It would be cathartic for both sides to blow the other up.

Paybacks a *****.


Is this proof PGI is listening!

Are we allowed to leg our "team mates" to make it easier for the enemy?

How about also:
Calculate based on the number of Hit and Run, Flanking, and Brawling bonuses which is the most prevalent (with some adjustment based on how easy it is to get some as opposed to others) among all the pilots listed. Then have an event based on getting those awards.

1.5m cbills for the most prevalent category
1m cbills for the second most
500k cbills for the third most

So let's say Hit and Run is my favorite is the most prevalent, then flanking, then brawling

Earn 75 Hit and Run for 1.5m cbills
Earn 50 Flanking for 1m cbills
Earn 25 Brawling for 500k cbills

Most streamers are Tier 1... that's why we are entertained by them! You have a better chance of seeing a Dev if you are Tier 3 or lower.

I'm tier 1, and I believe Mark Nicholson is as well. But yeah in future events, I'll be sure to use alt accounts as well, so that more players have a chance.
