Good, don't use dojos then.

In any case, after reading through this thread, I've decided I can't oppose this idea, but I can't support it either. I want to see more development of the idea and more feedback on it by people that actually use it on the test servers. There are a few things that would go against the grain of the nature of EVE with this:

1. instancing: it can't happen. It won't be EVE anymore, EVE will be dead.

2. safety: don't do this, at the very least, make the Dojo itself scannable and shootable like a mobile depot, so we can blast it into reinforce and come back after a timer to steal stuff, just like on a depot. Players using it will be forced to defend it, or lose it, in true EVE fashion.

I can't think of anything more to add here, but I will say this much - if it has the potential to liven up the PVP scene and encourage more carebears to shoot at things, and learn to fight back instead of just rolling corp/running away/petitioning CCP for griefing, then it can't be all bad.

I do support it only if it is scannable and able to be destroyed. Anything promoting instancing or safety from outside interference is not in the spirit of EVE.

New Eden is a cold, cruel place, as are its denizens, so why should we support something that promotes safety?

Do you also complain you can't blob AT teams? Roll

Eve is about risk vs reward, it's not necessary a grimdark edgy cruel place. Roll

This is not about promoting safety, ships will explode that's not what I would call safe, I guess you didn't read the thread and maybe you are posting because of a jabber ping forum cta xxx. Roll

This has a lot more potential than just being an AT training tool or gimmick for a few players. This has potential to give one group of players the structured pvp they desire while giving other groups of players content generation (loot pinatas in space). I think that other player's feedback in regards to how this can be achieved is valuable. Sure someone who has participated in tournaments and understands them would likely have more valuable feedback about how to implement the fights in the dojo, but the dojos themselves are a part of eve and effect Eve as a whole.

I think there are a lot of people in both camps who are selling this idea short.

ok, so from an outside player's perspective, how can I kill people that are using this mechanic? How much effort does it take to kill the dojo deployable?

If this provides any significant level of safety to the users, I will be leaving this game.

pvp in a 'protected' area - the new ultimate care-bears of Eve Online.

I hate that CCP is giving the spotlight to carebears during the AT/NEO streams, they should stream hellcamps, afk ishtar ratting and 10% tidi blobs instead !!

And don't forget that asking for your ship to explode in a non risk averse environment is totally what carebears do !

Oh wait. Roll

You agree tournament pilots are the ultimate carebears?

Control which ships are stocked in the Dojo?
Prevent neutral logi?

Just first thoughts.

Among others.

TLDR: The tools to run a proper tournament don't exist unless CCP is directly involved.

EDIT: And when they are involved they are doing it on their free time and not being paid.

The deployable is already scannable and can be RF'd/destroyed, as has been said multiple times in the thread, yes.

The drama and whining in this thread is nothing short of hilarious. I actually hope it does go to tranquility just to see the crapstorm that would result from all the so-called problems people are trying to predict.
