Proposal
Host a pod race as a future staff event. Since we couldn't have everyone in a pod racer and 100+ people competing it would be cool to have a qualifier swoop race of some sort. Top 10 or so players will receive one of the TCG pods temporarily for the race. Spectators could place bets and receive fortitude or some other event gift. And possibly even allow spectators to attack, set traps, or something that will allow for more participation (or even help players "rig" the race by ganking up on players). It would also be sweet to dial up the speed of the pods a few notches for the race. I could be wrong but I think everything already exists in game so it shouldn't require much additional development to prepare.
Motivation
Just thinking of fun staff events for the future.
Justification
FUN!
