Hello GUNners and GUNettes
Hope the easter bunny brought you clarity and peace of mind Thumbs Up
and lots of sweets and treats too, of course heheh  Dancey

Today we're putting up to public choice whether you'd prefer one of three event themes for us to develop over a few weeks during the month of May.


First option: in honoring "The Fourth of May" - international day of Star Wars
the 40th year anniversary and celebration of the Star Wars saga
the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront 2 game by DICE
the upcoming Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi
and all previous movies and games of the series,
we could respark last year's STAR WARS EVENT

Admittedly, last year's event lasted the entire month, which sort of dragged on for too long and people were getting tired of it by the end. But this year it would only last 2 weeks or so, to avoid the same over-saturation.

Second option: to include and respect the Star Wars theme, but add some more variety to it, we thought we would go with an overall SCI-FI THEME, of all space-faring and alien-blasting media: Star Wars, Star Trek, Mass Effect, Halo, Warframe, Eve Online, Firefall, Defiance, X-COM, and more

Third option: in honoring military observance days such as:
May 8: VE Day (Celebrates victory in European theater WW2)
May 20: Armed Forces Day
May 29: Memorial Day
we would go with a realistic trenches, soldiers, ww2, vietnam,
willie's jeep, desert storm, tactical ARMY THEME, with
camouflage and olive drabs uniforms included  Laugh Out Loud

So these are the 3 choices.
We will have our traditional screenshots contest, and perhaps fan-fic and graphics or even cosplay contest to go with whatever theme is the winner. The awards for the contests will be legitimate video games either through Steam, UPlay or Origin.

We won't have two themes at the same time... though the Sci-Fi theme may include all of the Star Wars elements, we wanna know if you want to expand to other sci-fi shows and games, not just the jedi/sith saga, or to keep it as close to the celebrations of May the Fourth as we did last year (though for not as long). And finally we'd like to know if you'd want to go a different direction with some gritty camouflage bad-assery. It's up to you

You'll only have a few days to vote.
Feel free to provide replies with your own arguments to your vote.

Be part of what makes GUN great cheers
Best regards  Big-Hug

I don't mind any of them. I first voted for Star Wars but cancelled my vote and instead voted for the Military theme. To me it seems a lot more significant to honour the fallen soldiers than it is to theme it around a new video game or movie releasing but that's just me.

I'd say go for Sci-Fi theme, as it can incorporate both Star Wars and sci-fi military action (XCOM etc).

My vote goes to the Sci-Fi theme and i suggest to include the Deus Ex Franchise in that event.

Or are we trying a mix of themes, like the military Sci-Fi (Starship troopers ....)?
In short it was just an idea like that.

To be honest, we've considered it in the Contest Committee chat, but we realized it would be offensive to real life soliders and soldiers' families from the past or present trenches of war, to place them side-by-side with fictional (and often comically aim-impaired) storm-troopers, clone armies or battle droids who get decimated by the thousands by the protagonist or antagonist of whatever space story.

we also wouldn't want to disrespect the tactical gear fans by muddling fantasy fiction into their love for realism and current tactical gear performances and accuracy.

so... we won't have forest-camouflaged space-suits and willie's jeeps driving alongside tie-fighters. it's like combining the Godfather movies with Jim Carrey comedy movies. They just wouldn't go together well, potentially ruining both experiences.

But we don't want you to think your idea is worthless.
We thank you for coming forward with suggestions.
Never hold back from bringing something new to the table.

My best regards! cheers

It seems like a tie between sci-fi and military as of now, both very good options in my opinion and i'm torn between chosing one, but for now my vote will go to sci-fi since I love cyber-punk

Easy! Sci-fi.

Sci-fi is really diverse in terms of it's sub-genres. You have things like Cyberpunk, Steampunk, SciFi Horror (Deadspace), Space Opera, and a crap ton more. A Sci-fi event could also include elements from Star Wars too as SW fits into the SciFi genre(s)..

However with military you could include a bunch of cool things too. Things like Navies from way back in the times of Athens and Sparta or as far as space ships and ship to surface troops. Cool choices but in the end it will either be ground vehicles, ships, aircraft, guns and/or infantry..

I love my Sci-fi. Anything out of this world is great. I didn't know we did events here. Good to hear!

We should do an armed forces theme, we've done sci-fi and star wars already, it would be kinda neat to have the Army theme.

The Sci-Fi theme would fit the site pretty well, adding the variety to keep it fresh. A whole month of just Star Wars can definitely tire out the people who aren't die hard fans.

The military theme is a cool idea, I know a few buddies that love hearing when respect is shown for members of the services even if they don't come here.

#2/#3 IMO.

Kind hard to chose between the three. But I vote for the Sci-Fi theme because it sort of cover Star wars too, and since we already had a Star Wars theme last year and that SW is sci-Fi, why not expand on it and cover Sci-Fi as a whole? So Sci-Fi for me.

Being a Army Vet myself, of course I had to go with Army theme.
Really cool choices to pick, I'll be happy with whatever gets the most votes.

Just a few hours left of the poll before shutdown!

it's a really tight vote, actually quite a bit difficult to settle! Sad

if we go with Option 3, then (right now) 20 people who voted Option 2 AND 8 people who voted Option 1 (so 28 in total) will be let down.

if we go with option 1, then 42 people (20 on 2 and 22 on 3) might be disappointed.

if we go with option 2, those from option 1 still get their star wars thing, so we only let down 22 people who preferred option 3...

either way... it seems that the public poll didn't make the decision easier for us TongueTril

that's just the way the cookie crumbles, I guess...
oh well Big-Hug

hehe.. that sounds familier... bruce allmighty? TongueTril Thumbs Up

well personly i would like to see a sci-fi theme instead of military theme. personly i think there is already enough military days in the year, so we could have a sci fi themed time for once. the good thing is it can be everything, from blade runner to stargate, to aliens and so on.

I am inclined to agree with the poster above. I don't have anything against military oriented stuff, and I wouldn't mind a mix of both themes. However, I know these veterans had their fair share of going through hell and what not to make us live with the so-called 'freedoms' available to us and be thankful for such sacrifices they offer on the battlefield, but quite frankly I think it's times like these when the internet should get a break from all this stuff.

I'm not saying we shouldn't have military themed styles at all, but the way I hear about Veteran's day and Armed Forces day taking place in the US, it's,,, kind of a political reason of stress for me, also in my opinion, it wouldn't be the time or place to commemorate in such things when we obviously live in an already fucked up world as it is, there's nothing to be proud of when it comes to war and you're forced to do something you don't like. No I don't hate America, but I think I've seen enough patriotism as it is in the real world. I won't elaborate since we're not allowed to discuss politics on here, and I don't intend to offend anyone on this. Message me on Steam or elsewhere if you want to find out more.

Not to mention not every single member on this forum is American. If that's what the majority wants, I won't object. But personally, knowing there can't be a mix since those as DVA would say, are rather 'sensitive' to such material in the modern days of war IRL, I may as well just cast my vote for the sci-fi theme.

Star Wars Event
16% [ 11 ]
Sci-Fi Theme
43% [ 29 ]
Army Theme
41% [ 28 ]

So that's the final tally!

There is plenty of support for an Army theme, so we'll definitely have one in the near future
but the month of May remains to Sci-Fi, which will include Star Wars elements,
thus satisfying 40 voters!

For the 28 army fans who voted, we'll have an event maybe sometime in July or so (Independence Day, right?) - Full Camo, Call of Duty/Battlefield/Medal of Honor/Enemy Front/ARMA/everything else of the type... It will be awesome.

But for the upcoming month, prepare for outer-space adventures!
Best regards!
