Let's get this sandbox back to the way it originally made sense.


  • Hi sec should be fairly safe but very difficult to profit in. Concord taxes, crappy ore/missions (no agent higher than level 3), etc.
  • Lo sec should be unsafe but reasonable to profit in. It would recieve all the good content currently sitting in hi sec.
  • 0.0 should be alliance controlled anarchy and have the best of the best in every way.


WH space being the final frontier should be very hard to live in but unimaginably profitable.

This seems simple to do.

Things are only impossible until they are not.

Another day, another MNG thread with old worn out subjects he thinks will get him some likes.

Will General Discussion keep falling for it? Stay tuned for the exciting conclusion.

One of the bitter points of a good bittervet is the realisation that all those SP don't really do much, and that the newbie is having much more fun with what little he has. - Tippia

So you want to move lvl 4 missions to low-sec.
Everything else is as you say it is.

WHy didn't you just say you want level 4 missions in low-sec ?

Simple and sensible are two different things. I agree with your sentiments, but it probably isn't quite as easy as you suspect. Hisec safety and profitability should be related as you suggest, the devil of course is in the details. Given the number of accounts that apparently live in Empire full time, you can't totally nerf them into oblivion without having quite a few repercussions on the sandbox and its economy.

Also, you probably need to break 0.0 into two categories, NPC Space and Sovereign Space.

Yeah let's just throw away the HighSec people, we don't need them...
Poeple from high will move to Low to earn moneyz and will be blown to pieces.
50% of them quit and we loose bunch of people, less subs, and so on...

God damnit masternerdguy that post makes sense. I guess if you spam the forums enough you'll hit a reasonable idea every now and again.

"Even a stopped watch is right twice a day" or something.

Also, I don't believe you believe what you've posted.

I plan on living forever.......so far, so good.
