I was in GSF's logistics branch for a year and a half. Managing towers is literally the worst and it should be fixed.

First I'd like to say that I understand where CCP is coming from, but that doesn't make the knife in my back feel any better. We were PROMISED a POS revamp, and living out of POSes is one of the shittiest parts of the game.

I agree with Ripard Teg -give us the ability to plant station eggs in W space.


What is it that you understand about ccps standpoint on this? Not trolling... Genuinely curious


They would rather work on a lot of things than to devote an entire expansion to a POS update (according to Two Steps blog post). What that really means is that the current POS system is so FUBAR that it can't be fixed and would have to be re-written from the ground up.


It wouldn't BE so bad if they didn't freaking promise every year to look at them, then say "welp, no time" each year. I mean SOMETHING besides reducing timers.

OMFG the access issues have GOT to be the easiest to fix - I mean, JUST FIX THOSE TO SHUT US UP FOR A YEAR.

What the hell CCP ? Logistics people are in the biggest danger of burning out with a constant turnover rate because it's tedious, monotonous JOB. I know that I will burn out in a week if I'll have to do that. Biggest part of why it's so bad is the POS system. It's horrible, outdated and badly designed, it should've been fixed years ago.

Please make their lives easier. It doesn't matter if they're just a small group of people relative to the whole community, they do more than dozens of others because they create and support the civilization that has grown in nullsec/wormholes. It's not fair to discard them because you're lazy and don't want to work on your promises. Just do it already.

POS's need fixing and they affect pretty much everyone in New Eden by varying degrees. Please make this a priority, it could be the greatest thing you ever do for the game. Let us really put down our own footprint.

How hard can it be to allow a checkbox that has a dropdown next to it that lets you select a custom-made title (already capable in-game) to determine Force Field or *gasp* fuel / anchoring access?

Really? How hard? I want an honest answer from a Dev. As a python developer for 10 years, I find it really hard to believe that portion can't be at least tweaked to make it a ******* billion times easier than it is today.

Great choices we have for POS management - trust everyone or no one. I get that mentality, but quit forcing it on us, and maybe we'll shut up about POSes for a while.

I am utterly baffled at CCP's point of view. Have they ever undocked in the last few years. POSes are everywhere, just travel through New Eden. May it be HS, LS , NS or WH there are POS's everywhere and they are the backbone for many of EvE's activities.

The only reason the maintenance of the POS falls to few people is because the whole role system is so damn awful there is no other way. It is an insult to a 2013 game design that I have to put up my own POS because giving me access to wide range of acitivities on the corp POS would expose all assets of my fellow corp member to my mercy.

I am at loss how one could argue they only a small part of the community. This childish attitude makes absolutely no sense.
You could argue against any feature this way.

Can't believe fixing mechanics made by a neckbearded programmer back in the previous millenium and resembling a poorly made hippie indie flash game can't be a priority for a supposedly competitive modern MMO game.

Logistic guys are so few due to broken game mechanics of POS, those "enablers" are the ones that have to deal with them on a regular basis. Don't hate your enablers!

I once helped to set up a POS.

The nightmare will remain with me for the rest of my life.

What moron could possibly think that the current well documented problems with POSes affect a niche of players few in number? What kind of drugs do you have to take to be so clueless?

This boggles the mind. Say you'll get around to fixing it. Then promise to re-do the whole thing (while keeping your own reasons for doing it under NDA). Then reneg on that promise. Then circle the wagons with lame excuses.

I had hoped that the Unified Inventory fiasco (which still isn't right) was a prelude to refactoring POSes and POS role management for the hangar divisions within. LOL I guess the joke's on me, eh?

Wrong.

POS improvements in the May 2013 expansion or else I'm done.
