To summarize:

I disagree with just adding a random factor to encounters and missions to add difficulty considering that if you ignore the existence of such sites as Eve-Survival, said encounters are already horrendously difficult with high damage and the potential of way too many nasty red things showing up to shoot that newb cluelessly shooting pirates or sleepers.

Randomness would be nice so that someone can't just turn to a guide to tell him what to do, and more importantly doesn't need to let someone else essentially do the mission for him. But just making things more difficult doesn't make it more interesting.

I would like to propose that k-space encounters have aggro mechanics added to them (You'd think that the pirates would, by now, have learned that maybe they should stop shooting that impossible to kill but barely damaging droneboat, and instead target the drones).

I would also propose that instead of having set triggers, that every so often a random NPC ship would stop and begin transmitting a distress signal. If the player doesn't blow it up in time, they get a few more reds added to the list.

Finally, I would like to propose that Sleepers be able to adapt to the situation. As in if a non-engaged Sleeper comes to the conclusion that it and its buddies brought the wrong tools to this fight, it shuts down momentarily, the ship itself gets visually altered to provide more attentive a hint that it wasn't quite the same drone it was before, and then resumes fighting with an altered weapons setup.


How about having different spawns depending on the ship brought to the site?
Doing a Sleeper site in a tech 3 is a lot easier than doing it in a Harbinger. The goal isn't to make the site impossible to do, but to make them a bit more challenging for high up ships.

As for Missions, they were pretty challenging to do when I had low skill levels. If something is done about their difficulty, please keep the newbie in mind .

Hmm ... no clue about wormholes yet (but soonTM). However a friend of mine was in AHARM for a time, he nejoyed the stay.

I guess this was already talked over and it's an old thing, but my favourite EVE video is the R&K one against AHARM. Particularly the tracking exploit. Have you learned anything from the incident or what is your current view on similar exploit uses ?

http://twostep4csm.blogspot.com/2011/03/infinite-tracking-wtf.html covers my side of things, it was a lot more complicated than the R&K video made it out to be.

I think we all learned something from it, which is to stay far away from anything that even seems like it might be sketchy. Since then, we have reported several exploits/bugs that we have found, and refrained from using them ourselves.

a wise decision also on what you said early with a "static wormhole, do you mean a wormhole that never despawns maybe it changes where it leads every DT if its not a k162 on the inside it would change where it would spawn on the other side or do you mean to make it stay in the spot connecting two systems together forever?

Every wormhole has one (or in Class 2 wormholes, two) "static" wormholes. These are wormholes, that when closed, will respawn. They always lead to the same class of wormhole or to high/low/nullsec. http://staticmapper.com is one public source of the statics for a given wormhole.

Good answer :-) you are close to getting my vote ... now I need to combine a hard working and honest CSM candidate and some linux support (at least a bit of wine testing on CCP side proposal) and I have my candidate.

no two step i mean literally static as in you dont have to scan that wh down if you have scanned it down before. at least thats what i understood from your post a few pages ago about class 7s and the like.

I'm sorry, I don't understand what you are asking. Static wormholes appear in a new place in space when closed.

I am hopeful this will be added sometime soon. CCP is certainly aware that the current system is less than ideal.

I just got an endorsement from Ripard Teg, the author of Jester's Trek, http://jestertrek.blogspot.com/2012/02/wabbit-season.html.

He said:

Quote:

Two Step, more than any other member of CSM5 or CSM6, demonstrates the fundamental correctness of Mynxee's goal of making the so-called "alternate" members of the CSM part of the process. Barely elected to CSM6 at all and dismissed as a wormhole specialty candidate, Two Step showed that he didn't really know or care what the word "alternate" meant. He simply did the work. More than any other single member of CSM6, he has been visible to the EVE Online player base in a variety of places, and has shown interest in multiple play-styles, not just his own. Two Step still represents an important segment of the EVE player base, but I'd now argue that it's larger than simply wormhole dwellers... it's every EVE player that has no interest in sovereignty-based play and super-cap blobs. Two Step deserves a full seat at the table in CSM7, and will be a terrific balance against these powerful forces. Two Step not only has my endorsement, he'll be receiving at least one of my votes.


Thanks for the kind words, Jester!

Spent a long time in that frontier space till life got in the way. Two step, you have done some great things keeping wormholes on CCP's mind. Would like to see you keep doing that.

When those voting starts, you have my votes.

Keep up the good work there.

Wormhole space is often an overlooked and misunderstood part of eve. Personally I view it as the most dangerous part of eve and in many ways it is like the old 0.0 space, before all blue area's and vast allainces

This part of the game does need a voice in the Csm that understands how it works

Two Step gets my vote, keep the good work up fella Big smile

Sadly, I don't think I make enough. My best year, I only get 2 gallons of syrup. Last year, I did offer some to AHARM, with this label

If you buy his syrup you better vote for hims as well is my only advice in this case, or else it might taste suspiciously salt for some odd reasons I don't wanna go into Pirate

Anyways you have my votes this year as well bud, don't see that coming to you as a shocker after designing your propaganda posters. On a serious note I must admit this guy is gonna burn himself out at some point, a more dedicated man to this game is rare to find. Go Two Step!

Some friends of mine and I are just moving into wormholes, but personally I'm also after a serious ******* industry iteration.

What are your thoughts on that?

As you can see I'm harassing the **** out of Seleene on the same issues, but I will either split my votes or give them to one of the two of you as I find you both to be the most worthy of the CSM candidates presently.

So be specific ;)

(Not that I don't want all sectors of eve iterated upon, but WH and indy need some serious attention now).
