You realize the game is made to be fun and then the lore is written around that, not the other way around. The lore doesn't actually make sense the way it is, if gates record everyone who comes through and puts them in local why do people that jump into system via other methods than gate show up in local (jump drive, medclone jump, etc)? Doesn't go with the lore. Maybe you should actually learn the lore yourself before you come to the forums being a douche.

I am so in support of this idea. Local chat is making PvP more stagnant than any other mechanic in Eve. In a sandbox that is advertised as hardcore and unforgiving I don't see why we need an auto infallible intel tool. In a game of skill like eve, scouting should take more skill than the ability to count heads in local. If you have a roam, and you don't use proper scouts a larger fleet should be able to gank and kill you. Now days you don't need proper scouts because you can see a local spike clear as day. Local chat makes pvp'ers lazy and unskillful. We shouldn't have to live in a WH to not have our hands held in Eve. If I wanted someone to hold my hand I would play WoW, yet I am hear so CCP please stop holding our hands.

Freighters could be caught during a war dec. Freighters could get through during a war dec.

You would still have Concord retaliation in high sec. You could still be camped, though if you break the camp it would be harder to hunt you down. Certainly no worse that what we have now but with compelling gameplay.

It would solve cloaky camps people complain about. It would give a point to cloaks of which people complain about.

It would make neutral alts almost irrelevant. Though not 100%. It would certainly make playing with one account a lot less of a disadvantage. Sure you might lose a few alt account subs, but you would gain many more subs by having more compelling gameplay. What good is a scout profession when they're revealed as soon as they enter system?

The changes the expansion are bringing aren't going to revitalize low sec or null sec and its certainly not going to promote or fuel war. Quite the opposite.

The devs and the playerbase talk a lot about EVE being hardcore, but as of yet i'm not really seeing the hardcore aspect to the game.

The game is a boring campfest. Removing local removes that to a large degree.

To my ultra Orthodox carebear players, uncle Caliphy isn't throwing you under the bus. The threats you worry about occuring with this change would actually be resolvable by a merc corporation. If you are decced and you hire a merc the merc cannot sneak up on the enemy with everything displayed for them. They may be able to make your tormentors life a little more difficult but in most cases can't force a fight under those conditions. With no local they could. If you are camped by a griefdec and you hire a reasonably sized merc to help you the griefer will never see them coming. It's win/win.

Even null entry points would be camped far less. Lets see the thirty man bubble camp consistently do it when a 150 man roaming gang warps in on them and they never see it coming.

Local is holding EVE back. Period. Get rid of it and let EVE become great.


Local in null sec should be removed and that is all.

The Vindy was not bad but you should rethink the fitting on the tengu.


And as you are currently docked up in a station as im missioning i started to wonder if you will ever come out to play.

And you wardec me my Sociopathic friend


Yeah right. You logged out all yesterday. Talk is cheap sir. Your killboard shows exactly what you're made of. But don't you worry my killers aren't going to let up. I'll be logged in 23/7 for the duration of us hunting you. Welcome to EVE offline. You tell the story yourself, we were coming after you. Aside from you, i've not seen one member log on from your 8 man alliance.

You're by yourself man, you can't mission in peace no more. I know it sucks.

of course the fact that you're not getting ratter KMs is most certainly not because you're awful at PvP, you're the best pvper in the universe and nothing holds you back except that big bad local window

Technically you don't really "grow" balls as if to create balls that were not previously there though I have known women who have "honorary balls" awarded for heroic deeds in RL.

I can see where the OP is going, but don't think things will get there.

Lore lol. The game is a snoozefest. HTFU. What headache? Boredom doesn't bring headaches. It brings nausea. Also, alt-sh.it poasting reciting nerd memes is for terribaddies. Proof in this thread. The main ones retorting snarky have killboards that smell of kitty poo. I won't mention names but you know who you are. Peace to those with constructive criticism.

Nerfing local will *not* work until they change static routes through null sec, which they have in WH space. With static routes it just becomes a matter of parking an alt on a gate (w or w/o bubbles...)

Little more work for no appreciable gain.

CCP have already said that some kind of change to local is in the works. Where it's at in the production que, I have no idea.

Not everyone with a great kill-board is a "good-poster", and not all those with a poor kill-board are "bad-posters" - it's the mind behind the keyboard that is important, and killboards don't measure that.


Just fyi...

CCP has a reputation for hamfisting almost every change initially and leaving the fix on the backburner for several expansion cycles, so you can see why some of us have serious reservations about changing local

Keep local for eva, save people's fingers from breaking cos they tapped dscan a quintillion times every time they play for 5 minutes. What a ludicrous game eve would become with out local.

And PLEASE dont suggest some great new dscanner to replace local, cos then you'll just get local back under a new name, defeats the purpose utterly Roll

Every time someone says to grow some balls I think of one of three things:

"Lol, video games require ~balls~"

Or I picture myself with four or more testicles.

Or I picture a vagina with some testicles.

None of these are pleasant thoughts. Please stop.
