FireFall Beta Testers! There is going to be a player sponsored (and R5 supported) event starting tonight at 6ish PM US Eastern Time (5 PM Central, 3 PM Pacific). The gist is to wipe out the Chosen then fall back to Copa and hang out for a while to see how long it takes them to recapture the points on the map.
Start time for Australia would be Saturday November 3rd.
Perth @ 6:00 am
Sydney @ 9:00 am
Event - Chosen Collusion Friday November 2, 7 PM EST | Firefall Forums
Note to the Mods: FireFall is not under an NDA (as noted in this thread) and beta testers are free to talk about the game.

At 6:30 if you have not made it into my instance yet, please whisper myself or one of the R5 individuals for an invite. Be patient. Once you have Joined Leader into the instance please make my inviting easier by leaving the group. You are welcome to form your own groups. I ask that no one go out and kill the Chosen until my signal (roughly 7 PM) this mostly so everyone can join in the pre-data-gathering 'fun'.
I ask that if you are going to go Killing that you join a squad. and that our squads are full so we can maintain a headcount, and If we have enough squads we can assign areas for each squad. This will also allow us to gather data regarding how fast can players in general push back the chosen and keep them pushed back.
Once the Accord has control of zones, we will need to keep the zones clean of chosen until we reach a nice even time stamp. (7:30, 7:45, 8:00) at which point I will ask us all to fall back to copa and watch the fireworks.
Tentative TIme Line (all TImes in EST)
6PM - fluffydeath logs in starts inviting previous colluders
6:30pm- starts accepting invites from all colluders.
7:00 - start the slaughter
7:30-8 stop killing Chosen. FAll back to Copa Cabana. Gather Data.
Once a point of stagnation seems to have hit, Kill teams will be sent out to kill "useless" drop pods and supporting chosen. I don't know if we should ever need to kill the chosen occupying towers or not. (I believe if the tower remains in chosen control they will just respawn anyway.) Due to The Incursion Generator Bug and their despawn timers we should not have to deal with Incursions at all.
Once again I ask that if you are going to go Killing that you join a squad. and keep squads full so we can maintain our headcount.
