So the game should be exactly like it was in 2003? Your arguments keep getting more and more insane...

No I didn't say that. Timers however need to removed. Time to take off the training wheels and experience some of the negative aspects of holding massive amounts of space.


I'm a newb regarding null/sov matters so excuse my ignorance, but who exactly would be able to consistantly hold space if single players/small groups of players just rolled around knocking down structures of sleeping alliances?

Next you will want docking removed, with all of our ships going into deadspace and being scannable while we are logged off because you should be able to shoot us anytime, anywhere, any way you want... but mostly just when no one is around to defend themselves.

The alliances that recruit globally. Pretty simple. If your 35k man alliance can't hold sov in the low population hours they have an issue with recruitment. It's not something that needs timers to feck up the game for people who are actually online.

In a sandbox game if one of the kids leaves his sandcastle unprotected to go have dinner it shouldn't magically become invulnerable. It's no longer a sandbox in that situation.

It should if it creates a better gameplay experience, which it does.

Such rules have pretty much no impact on the sandbox status. The rules are just as much a defining feature as the tools. It's a sandbox, not an amorphous pile.

I too would like to know how a structure designed to allow fitting changes at the time and place of ones choice wasn't intended to allow fitting changes at the time and place of ones choice.

Imagine that! We are given a choice to use something that gives us options, options are good.

moble deeps are now mandatory on all ratting carriers.

All automated intel should be removed from the game including Instant local/jumps/kills/cynos for all systems/regions.Eve should report nothing like this to the client/3rd party software.Intel should not be force fed to players. Player skill and iniative should be the sources of intel.

The CFC has taken and defended plenty of timers outside US/EU timezones.

Removing timers simply removes the possibility of fights because it's simply unreasonable to expect a group to be able to react within a single siege cycle.

That's the whole point. Everything you eject and anchor in space is 100% protected from damage by timers. Of course you don't care. That's what's wrong with the timers.

You are precious. Allow me to quote one of your own posts back to you:

My take on it is if you didn't like the mechanics when you joined you should STFU and leave. Not whine like little girls till the devs cave in and make it easy like your last game was

Why doesn't this apply to your whining about reinforcement timers?

When I joined in 2003


When you joined in 2003 you probably had more hair, less fat and a better smell. You also probably had a chance at getting a piece of calming poontang so 10 years later a small change in a video game wouldn't send you into a fit of rage...see things change.

Maybe take this chance to get a toupe, rent a fancy car and go look for some poor unsuspecting lady to knock up so she can't run away when she finds out the car is rented, the hair is fake and you get enraged by video games.

As some may recall, when I have previously had my private life speculatively and personally attacked I responded by posting my Myspace (yes I sadly used it back then), well this is 7 years later or so , I'm 40 now and I'll let you be the judge as to weather I'm fatter, need hair replacement or whether I'm still capable of picking up chicks.... smell wise, I use 1 million... I like it

Oh the bike was last years Christmas present to myself, its a 2013 HD Nightrod Special.

Whats funnier is that the mobile depot didn't just appear out of thin air, CCP tested them and as soon as they hit the test server people we commenintg about how you could use them during combat. No one seemed to have a problem with it.

It's more of the same, people not paying attention when CCP says "this is coming" then being surprised when it gets here.
