So, VEGA is one of those games that holds one-time events and makes everybody play the story at the same time rather than having each individual player complete the story on their own. Which is cool. But there are a few problems with this: for on, new players won't ever get to play the old events, and they'll have to start in the middle of the story. Two: based on the nature of the events, certain equipment will never again be obtainable once the events are over. And third, for every story there must b an ending. Vega must be beaten eventually, or the miners will be defeated themselves. So what happens after this story ends?
Here is what I suggest: after the final event, where vega is defeated, the story starts over at the first event ever and runs exactly as it did before all over again. I know this story takes several real-time years, but what else are you going to do?
