I would like to see an unknown alien race(s) invade High Sec Space causing everyone to forget about their day to day EVE life.

Random and with new unknown technologies and capabilities, these "new races" should require folks who previously didn't know each other to form response groups to repel the invaders.

There are all kinds of outcomes, rewards, and penalties that could result from this. It would add an unknown element to the game and stir things up quite a bit.

They could also invade Low and Nul as well. Can you see a major Alliance Battle interrupted by and alien fleet of unknown ships?

We had the Hulkageddon for the same effect.

But seriously, though what you propose sounds nice, factual evidence show that people will not group together in EVE even when facing difficult odds. I just do not think it would be wise to try and implement CoH/CoV PvE features in a game like EVE where trust is so easily broken. And I warn you about suggesting that more game mechanics should be put in place to disallow us scamming and stealing from each other. That would make the game far to mainstream and boring. And there are plenty of mainstream games out there already btw.

I always thought it would be cool to have a Jovian death squad jump in during a fleet engagement.

I can even think of a storyline reason for this. If there is a massive buildup of military supplies within jump distance of their home systems, the Jovians could attack to pre-empt a potential invasion!

Would not need to be unknown aliens. Sleepers. We invade their space, so they invade back.

What would it take to bring down a Jovian Death scuad? I figure a whole lot of fire power.

I fully support this idea, when they show up first in YOUR Angel Extravaganza Bonus room, while you are fighting in your officer pimped CNR.

Now, sir, everything allright?

Luckily that doesn't happen yet. Rolling Eyes

Sounds like a nice change, I like the idea.

even random invasions of existing pirate factions in high-sec would be nice to see now and again..
