Question is very simple , can we count on 1 additional lowsec gate connection for 2 big npc regions : Venal and Stain
Reason is very simple - those are vast NPC regions that have only 1 limiting factor for small groups and new people.
They are far from lowsec / higsec space and are hard to access and make basic logistics for them.

This is limiting "fun" factor for every one.

Those regions have big amount of stations and can be place where many new corporations can be forged - but people need to have easier access to them.

Usually those smaller groups don't have Jump Freighters to do logistics , thus cannot have possibility to compete with local population.

If this is possible can Stain get gate connection to northern Higsec like Black Rise and Venal get connection to southern lowsec like Khanind.

Maybe both regions can get connection to some systems in Genesis to make this more interesting for every one.

I've seen some small groups with frighteningly good logistics.

I can say from a position of experience that as a small group moving into a populated area and competing against the odds/numbers it is a challenge. But there are solutions - you just need to think creatively.

I know that small groups needs to be creative , yet i live in both of those regions an i see how hard is for new groups to move in.
They have the courage , they have willingness to fight , but at some point they are just unable to supply them self and start to degrade as an organization.

I'm not disagreeing with your idea by the way. Just that it will always be a challenge for smaller groups whatever. If you add a new gate then the larger groups can use it just the same as you, they get the benefits too...

There is no such thing as "too hard".
There's only "not trying hard enough".

It's either impossible or not.

"Too hard" is something lazy and dumb people came up with ...
... because they don't want to put enough thought and or effort into something.

So I can say that ...

As there are people who succeed ...
... it definitely isn't too hard.

It's the other way round.

For too many it's not easy enough.
They deserve nothing.

And anyhow... wrong forum.

Eh? Have I missed a dev comment / idea that you are taking the **** out of, or have you mixed up the regions you meant to connect, or are you really suggesting a gate link from Black Rise to Stain. That's quite an impressive jump distance. I feel I'm missing a joke.

How small is a small group? Surely in an active corp of 20-30 you can scrape together 7bil for a JF and convince someone to fly it.

I think letting players build and set up their own public-use gates (outside of POSes) would be cool.

Our corp had no issue moving out there, I moved my own stuff out there via black frog and myself via medical clone reset and pod express.

1. Wormholes.

2. The Khanid Kingdom does not want a new connection to those Venal vermin.
