Because building an exact duplicate of Tranquility hardware isn't at all expensive Roll

Could you elaborate on that ?

Sounds interesting.


"Gas Chamber Challenge: When the Gas Chamber first debuted, people would say things like "OH, I BET THIS IS GOING TO THE GAS CHAMBER!". Lowtax (actually it was Captain Yams, but that's a different story) issued the Gas Chamber Challenge: if you say that a thread is going to the gas chamber, and it doesn't; you're banned. So then people said stupid things like "I WILL TAKE THE GAS CHAMBER CHALLENGE!". So the GCC was changed slightly: if you say anything close to "THIS THREAD IS GOING TO THE GAS CHAMBER! HAHAHAHA" you'll be banned." - Anotherone (best description)

Though a PvP split was not suggested by the OP, it reminds me of Trammel & Felucca, which was the death of Ultima Online. It wasn't a slow lingering death either, but immediate.

The single shard nature of EVE is very important to its survival.

I've only been playing for a couple months, so a reset wouldn't effect me that much. I'd lose a few million SP, a few billion ISK and all the cool ships I can't fly. That isn't much in the grand scheme of things. And so, if there was a reset I'd be only a short amount of time from where I am now, and getting back would be easy. But I wouldn't get back. I'd stop playing. MMOs have to be persistent in order to succeed. Also, if you split the universe, you'll have the issue of large groups of players moving to the new server and taking it over. You think people whine about Sov holding groups now? Just see what happens when they take it all with nothing but rookie ships.

That nimrod whom I put a 700,000M isk bounty on? I'm making sure he doesn't get away to some parallel universe.

I'm voting negatory.

There's real reasons why your Eve character doesn't do /dance.

Even if you set the "tech Level" of the game back, and made everyone (who chose to go to the other server) start from zero, you would:

1: Inherent all of the old (and much worse) problems that EVE had at that time.

2: Come to the realization that within a couple of months the same people would be doing the exact same things (and holding the same territory) that they do now... just in different ships. In fact, it would be the larger groups (that are now viewed as creating the current status quo) who would benefit the most due to their already superior organizational skills. Things would rapidly stagnate far more than they currently have.

Not to mention the whole "single shard universe" concept goes into the trash bin.

So no, I don't think it's a good idea... although I can see why it might appear so at first glance.

This is an idea that's probably been floated before:

Start a new instance of the Eve Online universe, reinstate the game as it was much closer to release.

Didn't we just talk about this here last week?

See Bio for isk doubling rules. If you didn't read bio, chances are you funded those who did.

What you are looking for is called "test server"



Nope. Test server adds content.

I'm talking about going back to a simpler day. When 0.0 was actually wild. When all you needed was a handful of buddies to go have some fun.


Nothing is stopping you from creating your own, awesome, single-shard game universe!! Go for it! It would be awesome, I bet!

What you're feeling, OP, is called nostalgia. Most people feel it for real life activities, friends, and culture that were part of a different time in their lives, when they were different people than they've become now. You're feeling it for the early stages of a video game that could be shut down forever if some Vikings get drunk enough. Think about that.

Or just shard Nullsec. Let them be free of the horrible oppression of their highsec PvE/Industry alts. P

All the money and effort that would go into creating a brand new server would be much better spent improving EvE itself. The old-school server of EvE built up slowly, with the playerbase growing over time. If a brand new server was created today, you can expect a massive amount of the current EvE playerbase to create an account over there as well, and i'm pretty sure it would get slammed.

Besides, there are already loads of things we're waiting on CCP fixing, and they're already splitting their time between all the cosmetic things in Rubicon, Dust, this new Valkyrie game, and you'd want to add building a whole new server on top of that too? Shocked

Post with your main, like a BOSS!

And no, i don't live in highsec.  As if that would make your opinion any less wrong.

OP...

Please sit down, and be quiet.

This idea is dumb.

Adapt and deal, just like everyone else did.
