With the summit coming up and starting this weekend it has come to my attention that a lot of details and the small parts of aegis sov may have slipped through the cracks and people may not be clear on how Aegis sov works.

With this in mind I have been in contact with people at ccp and am using my connections as a csm to try and facilitate the making of list of frequently asked questions with answers for both the Attacker and Defender. These questions I aim to submit to ccp and in turn they have agreed to take the time to answer them so we have a lasting list of questions and answers for those who may in the future need a quick go to for aegis sov.

I am here to ask you as the player base to submit to me questions regarding the mechanics of aegis sov that you think people would need to know if they were going to attack or defend entosis sov.

With me doing this it does not mean I agree or disagree with how sov is or what it could be. For the sake of this FAQ I am impartial, this is simply an attempt by me to give people the chance to come to me with questions that you would ask yourself when you were taking or defending sov under the current mechanic. I will be limiting the questions to 20 per side, 20 for an attacker 20 for a defender this is to not overload people too much. I will update the list as I see good questions come in from this thread of from external sources.

Please post your questions below in this thread or mail them to me in game. I hope to populate this list as quickly as possible with the aim to hopefully submit this to ccp during the summit.

The Questions:

Attackers:

1. If you Kill an IHUB in a system with a military index, will the index stay up if you launch a new ihub before the next downtime?
2. Do the defenders get an alert at the start or end of my warmup cycle?
3. What is an Entosis link? How does it work and how does it effect my ship when I use it?

Defenders:

This has been asked, and answered by a dev. It is intentional.

I don't need twitter. I'm already following you.

(Defender POV) There's a WH in my ratting system. Do I have to be afraid?

(attacker pov) Wheres the carrot? The stick is here, sov is harder to hold, but why do we want to hold sov beyond our name on the sov map? Why would someone want to take sov? I don't see why anyone who isn't in sov null wants to get into sov null. Every other type of space has better income, and to defend our sov we have to mine or rat instead of the few ways to make comparable money to the rest of eve in sov.

(defender pov) When are things like pi, importing, ship building, and actually pvping in our space going to matter? This sov system forces us to rat and mine, when will we be rewarded for the actually valuable parts of living in sov null?

Dear Sort,

I know that it can be frustrating as **** when your input falls upon death ears, or when CCP employees make condescending and snarky remarks about how if we don't like aegissov nullsec then we might try doing some smallgang (ie chasing ceptors around), or when a game developer suggests that it isn't important that most of nullsec has concluded that there is no incentive to hold sov and are unsubbing, and and that we should all just go to lowsec.

Please attempt to remain civil and not troll / lose your composure at the summit. It is obvious that the dev team is a little thin skinned at the moment, and anything that they could construe as criticism of their recent development direction might completely bias them against you to the point that they completely ignore your feedback (which to be fair wouldn't be much different then what they do now).

It must be even more frustrating when you realize that the development team is literally ignoring all of the content creators in the game screaming at them that recent / proposed changes are making EVE even less of a game and more of an unpaid job.

You have a lot to contribute, and even though you should keep your hands off our wormholes, your voice needs to be heard when it comes to capital and nullsec.

A lot of us our counting on you. Please don't let us down.

Love,
Boson

Why should i own Sov?

Why should i defend my Sov?

Why should i attack anyone's Sov?

More elaborate here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Eve/comments/3ivm0l/constellation_mechanism_solving_the_why_of/

Warning, it may not be exactly what larger null-bloc alliances want to hear, but these to me are core questions, needing answers. Ive done my best to propose some, based on my 2 months of Aegis Sov.

EDIT: Specifically, please explain the 'OVERTIME' mechanism. What happens, exactly?

Thank you for taking the time to submit your questions.


Attacker -
1. yes
2. end - they get it the second you actually start to move the timer
3. high slot module used due to sov structures and outposts having no more EHP because of some drifter lore and now you have to use entosis to capture or destroy a structure

defender -
1. no you can choose a new one immediately and it goes into affect immediately, if you only have one system left, it is automatically chosen for you and updated immediately


I'll answer more questions as they come in

Is there any way to tell if one guy in a frigate is trolling my sov or is it an organized gang? Must I respond in full force to each notification is what I'm asking. How come the attackers alliance isnt displayed? This would go along way towards gauging the threat and necessary response.

(both attacker and defender) What is the role of battleships in the new sov system? Was anything in particular planned for BSes? Are CCP satisfied with the current BS usage in null PVP?

Isn't this more than a little pointless, Sort? The questions that you have already put on the list are answered in multiple places already, i.e. dev blogs. Shouldn't valuable summit time be used to discuss things that can't be learned elsewhere? in that spirit, here's a question for you:

Why should I even try to take and hold sov when I can't even be bothered to read about how it works?
