Dev Blog: The Battle for Caldari Prime

Capsuleers,

For five years a wall of Caldari steel has sat in orbit of the besieged planet of Caldari Prime. The Gallente who still reside there cower in its shadow, held to ransom on the whim of Caldari State Executor, Tibus Heth.

Soon, it will be time for you to show your worth, and display your prowess on the battlefield. You've all come so far in the last ten years, and the time draws closer when your immortal brethren on the ground will begin to assist you in shaping the political landscape of New Eden.

A storm is coming, and when it arrives your actions could either assist in maintaining a fragile stability, or usher in a new era in politics that will resonate across every world in New Eden.

You can read more about the storm that is brewing here.

Will this live event have any actual impact on who controls the system? Could the system changes hands from Gallente to Caldari? Or is this a static event with no repercussions on the game?

Question - Will you be disabling the FW and sec status NPCs in Luminaire for this event?

Very good point. "BATTLE FOR CALDARI PRIME" (Caldari need not apply)

CONCORD and the navies will still be on the prowl for those who choose to breach the Yulai Convention.

At the same time, trust me, you'll be able to shoot at eachother.

Does that mean people in Caldari Miltia be able to turn up and help or will they just die?

Yeah, they can shoot eachother. But they've always been able to shoot eachother ever since Militia got implemented. That is not the problem. The problem is the same problem at the Algogille gate. Gallente Loyalists show up and defend Gallente interests. Caldari Loyalists show up and get shot down by NPC's before being able to make any sort of difference.

So yes or no will Federation Navy NPC's designed for low standings and FW be turned off?
If not the entire Caldari Militia and those who most want to actually aid the Titan instead of "woman-who-sell-her-body" onto a potential Killmail wont be able to help.

This was one of the things I posted in the thread when the idea of this battle was first started, with current game mechanics the most loyal to the State can't go in and aid them because it's a 1.0 system spawning NPC Battleships which neut you out in short time and have crazy DPS. There are also the issues with Aggression Mechanics now meaning aiding anyone in Empire makes your entire logistics fleet Suspects.
It's somewhat frustrating to be on the side which is pretty much destined to lose this battle because on top being in the minority (The ones who don't want to help kill a Titan) we're faced with game mechanics fully designed to keep us out of the event system.

Chances are there will be Titans on both sides, make sure people are aware of this fact and you will get your own share of the people wanting to kill a titan.

quite hard for the caldari rpers with bad gallente standings(read all that take it seriously). current faction navies aren't the joke the used to be anymore, combined with agression mechanics its pretty much impossible to participate in an event in a gallente high sec.

guess thats what people are concerned about.
