Okay, okay, let's all calm down...

The EES isn't really a great new feature but if you don't want to use it, you don't have to. You only lose 5% of bounties.

That said, I wonder if we could have had modular POSs by now if CCP weren't working on deployables? ...hmmm

But there was that one time they fixed...and another time they...wait...no. No. CCP pretty much never fixes broken nullsec shit they leave behind.


That's not true, they have fixed numerous broken aspects of nullsec. It's just takes at least two years.

Also I'm sure this got lost in the ESS discussion but: where do the blueprints for the new siphons come from? Are they bpos sold in empire, or bpcs dropped from somewhere?

It´s not going to happen in 1.1, but might in the future. Possibly also if we do meta-versions later that change security level restrictions and/or payout values.

Will you consider making null sec ratting worth my time instead of me being in low sec making 10x the isk in a bomber running fw missions?

They're faster than that. They fix things 18 months™ after they're broken.

CCP mostly sucks at their job, but Veritas is a pretty cool dude.

I don't think there are blueprints, I believe I read it's buy direct from the Empires themselves with no player production involved.
Which is another thing we (players and CCP) have been working to get rid of for a long time so shouldn't be happening again.

So you want to introduce a new feature that is clearly broken, and then possibly maybe fix it in the future?

The ESS devices are bought straight from navies of the four Empires. It is unclear if it through the LP store, or if it will be an NPC sell order at their stations. (probably the latter)

Those are ESS, not the hybrid and rote siphons.

CCP has it the wrong way around. This is a perfect highsec thing. Here's what it'll do (if done properly) for highsec:

1) It'll give missioners/ratters/etc a little bonus for working from one system
2) It'll give ebil pirates a goal for highsec
3) It'll give carebears a delicious honeypot to guard all day long.



Actually, hisec is the one place where the mechanics of this would properly work as a conflict driver. Not surprisingly, CCP also failed to realize this and are instead forcing another income nerf upon rank and file nullsec players.


It sure would be a conflict driver there. And hilarious. .... And cause lots of rage and probably even unsubs :(

[quote=Zerb Arus]

to your 2nd point: Link the "Take All" button to a hacking game that is difficult enough to be unfeasible in an interceptor.
 ➩ People have been longing to use hacking devices on non-NPC structures for ages.
 ➩ It has been suggested many times in this thread
 ➩ It just feels logical

Yes, the hacking mini-game and lootspew (would be tagspew now I guess) have gotten so much positive feedback lets add these mechanics to more parts of the game Roll

I explicitly said "Hacking game" not "loot spew". I find neither enjoyable, but the first one has at least the potential to get improved someday.
But yes, in its current state I wouldn't even call the hacking thingie a minigame As someone once said: "If you wouldn't play it on your smartphone even as free app, It's probably a bad game"

I'm trying to remember which feature it was where they said they'd literally fix it after it went live even though they knew it was broken. It's hard to discern which is which because the only difference is whether CCP acknowledged a screw-up beforehand.

Oh... misread you on that one. Sorry, yeah guess I am caught up in ESS fever, I hear it's going around right now. P

They admitted being unable to switch ammo in rapid launchers was terrible before they were released and that they'd look into a workaround. Maybe. Some day.

The bolded and underlined part bit of that sentence is the part most of us wanted to hear without the rest of that.

You bored? you do not have what to introduce? F****g Syphon first, and now the ESS?
you learn how to rob, steal and cheat!
It may finally do something with HIC?
HIC should be saint! Bubble of HIC should stop everything! Now they are useless because they are too expensive, heavy and require too much skils!
But why do something meaningful ... For fun, Destroy stations in Jita ... will be fun ..

I am still curious what the CSM had to say about this particular feature, since it's not in the minutes.

e: Please, have a discussion with players about *new* things you are working on. Features and Ideas is a great forum if you want to discuss with players. the CSM is a great place to do secret changes. But this doesn't need to be secret, I don't understand why this wasn't discussed.

e2: BTW, the option to 'access' and 'loot' are available even when you've warped off the device. And if you accidentally click them, you warp to them, inside the bubble. That is REALLY annoying.

Ok, going from here on:
Would you rather that we, the players, assume your intent is malign, or that you are incompetent?
I have no idea how you still think any of this is good, but I will not attribute it to evil intent if you'd rather have it attributed to imcompetence, and the reverse of course.

I'm not sure if I am biting the troll here, but seriously, your posts seem to be typed while your head is a foot up your own arse.

Edit:
This is said in the nicest way possible. I had a few choice words that I didn't type.
