I can't decide which is more annoying:

"Make highsec safer" threads... or "AFK cloaking must die" threads.

First there is the thread title.

Then, if you hold the mouse over the title, you can read some of the post.

If you don't like what you read....

Because those who can't do themselves keep others from doing too.

We all know that there are three different types of space for players;

  • You have Null Sec where almost all and most PVP take place. This is a enter at your own risk space.

  • You have Low Sec which is something between PVE and PVP, basically don't fly with one eye closed.

  • You hace High Sec for all players that rather not PVP and focus on content that is out of scope for conflict.

You have a misconception about the different areas of space. The Highsec, Lowsec, Nullsec, & WH Space reflects the risks associated with each zone. None of these zones are dedicated to PvP or PvE, both of which happens regularly and plentifully through EVERY zone.

There has always been a direction with Eve Online and the introduction of Eve Online promotes a clear picture. If you do not want to PVP you should not be forced into PVP space. You can be a miner, a planet harvester, an explorer, a high sec mission runner, a courier, a distributor, a business man, well almost anything if you do not wish to PVP.
Ganking occurs in High Sec, you are never safe in High Sec. You have Concord to protect you but Concord is not always faster or stronger at the time of the attack. We call it High Sec because it is High Security and High Security needs to improve. If you wish to risk your ship and your pod by entering High Sec with a mission to attack ships then the risk needs to be higher.

Concord, like the police, rarely stops the crime from happening. They generally punish those who commit the crime.
Why does highsec need to be safer? I don't understand! It is already very safe, you just have to be smart about it. The average player is not a victim to crime, not to mention there are MANY in game tools to protect yourself.

No matter where you live, you are the one responsible for protecting yourself first and foremost...

You can enter High Sec Space today in a Destroyer, armed with sharp teeth and take our mining vessels with minimum loss.

The good thing about Eve is that there are no space restrictions, if you wish to challange the High Sec standard you will more than likely be penalized in one way or the other, however, the victim is not compensated enough as it is today. In other MMORPGs there are zone restrictions where PVP is controlled by player flagging. Eve is unique in its way to make space as democratic as possible but without restrictions.

Ideas for Improvement;

  1. Concord to install surveillance equipment at each Stargate that connects from Null/Low Sec to High Sec and all High Sec Stargates. The purpose of the surveillance is to alert Concord when a pilot enters who is not wanted in High Sec Space. Concord will initiate a boarding procedure and escort the pilot out of High Sec space which includes confiscating the Ship. If the Pilot flees, Concord will initiate a Chase with the authority to destroy the ship and kill the pilot.

  • The technology available allows blocking certain ship types from accessing acceleration gates. This technology could be used to secure High Sec from allowing ships belonging to Pilots with a history of High Sec violance, thus, the pilot cannot use a High Sec stargate.

  • When a pilot violates High Sec law, not only should the pilot's ship be destroyed but the pilot should be killed or arrested and fined. If arrested the pilot's ship should be confiscated.

  • The higher security status the victim has the more focus is given towards the penalty received for attacikng this pilot in High Sec space.

  • Concord reaction time is to slow, the loss for an unarmed miner for instance will always be greater than the loss for an attacker. Concord to hire more pilots and be more active in High Sec Space.

Why does highsec need harsher penalties for criminals?
