I was told there was a region in new eden that used to be low sec, but CCP turned into high sec as a result of one alliance enforcing the law in it, or something like that. I can't remember the details, and would appreciate it if one of the old players can give us the whole story and the details if possible. 07

Sorry who/what is Pandaria?

The reason I ask is I was flying with Spectre Fleet, and the FC who was Jayne Fillon was holding a trivia after fleet was over, during which the subject came up.

Sarum Prime, right next to Amarr, used to be lowsec. This was changed at the end of 2003. But it's not a region, just one system.

Thank you. Would it be too much to ask for the background story of why it was changed from low to high sec? Thanks in advance :)

Cause it's so close to all that high sec area people kept accidentally jumping into it. And, the dim-witted grabbers of low hanging fruit realizing this set up eternal gate camps just to rack up kills on their KBs (which largely contained rookie ships.) So, for their good (forcing them to actually fight ships woofadam with people behind the wheels that can FIGHT) and for our sakes (shutting down the tsunami of smack talk posts by people who specialize in killing rookie ships) an executive decision was made (something that's very rare in these parts.)

If we get chased by zombies, I'm tripping you.

Lol, might as well be. Not like anything of value is safe going through there anyways.

It was the Jove A821-A and J7HZ-f regions. Long time ago these regions used to have Hi, low and null sec systems. Them CCP change the sec status to all be null sec (-0.0 to -1.0). Of course, that change was nothing to do with player actions.
The other inaccessible UUA-F4 region, with are not Jove sovereignty, always had the null sec status from the beginning.
In addition, the Jove regions used to have stargates between system (dotlan maps already keep it), however by now, almost stargates are gone.

The jump gates disappeared on the map around the time of the appearance of Superluminal Stellar Anomaly YC116-11-26. It's unclear whether there's a connection.

You can call it Caroline's Star, Mister CCP Darwin. Because that's what everyone calls it by in New Eden, and one of the best roleplaying themed mini-event CCP added to the game in recent times. I'll always remember those weeks fondly.

I prefer to stick to the authorized CONCORD terminology rather than letting it all hang out and getting all casual. But don't worry...

Back before Factional Warfare came, they added a new region 'Black Rise' and made it low sec. to my knowladge, no other region or system, besides the one mentioned, has changed. At least not since CCP changes the highway system in castor

OMG Comet Mining idea!!! Comet Mining!
