Well, we'd need some reason for OCs to fight each other and in this case it's just a "prize change", true. But it's not at all same as the current one. Apart from "romantic add-on", this is not a place where you could just walk in. While "UUU" was a civilian institution with a hidden lab, this is a military base with a LOT of firepower defending it. A lot of people, too. It would include a lot more NPC fights, unlike the current one. Also, "UUU" was in the middle of city, while military base is more-or-less in the middle of nowhere. And one more thing - this "prize" fights back. Current OCT would allow OCs to take out the makers of the breakthrough and snatch the breaktrough itself, while in this one you don't just GET the prize. Not only do OCs have to fight it, they also need to find a way to DISABLE it while NOT destroying it. After all, they were sent to RETRIEVE the robot, NOT destroy it.
Hmm... Nice ideas, Visi. I'm thinking "subtle and hidden" (tower would be easily noticable and flying one would use a bit too much fuel XD). Though not completely hidden, it looks like a small base barely noticable from all the nearby trees (easily spotted from air, though). But it actually has several underground levels where they do their research and keep most of their equipment. Also, it's a military base, swarming with battle-ready soldiers.
