Don't jump the gun on zombies, dude. Like Huracan, we could make zombies work by adding something extra to it. For example, magic/space/angelic parasites using corpses as puppets. If each parasite was given a personality and picked their hosts to match and had unique skills, we could have some interesting character concepts. Also, tendrils and other excess body parts (or lack of needed parts!) to further increase diversity. Their backstory has plenty of possibilities: the last queen of a dying race crashes to Earth (too Sakrohm, I think), Ielena attempts to summon divine power only for it to turn against her (Angels inside of Zombies), or a corporation playing god with genetics accidentally (or maybe purposefully) unleashes the body-warping parasites upon Clint City or maybe Elektrozova (in that case, the parasites could have been designed to fight the undead before turning on their creators).
Also, 3 am where I live for the event. Fun.
Oh well, the west had plenty of Coliseum events, it's only fair to give the east a shot.
4-11AM? That's 3-10, my time.
(As a favor for the Americans out there, could you possibly give times in Eastern Standard Time as well as Euro time? Most of us aren't at all familiar with the time zones used over there and it makes life terribly, terribly confusing. A simple "Blah GMT/Blah EST" is all I ask.
I play another online game that is made over in Europe. They put a clock on the top right of the screen. It runs their time. It's nice when they say that stuff is going to happen at X time you can look at their clock and your own to do the math.
