Hi sec players wont be going to Thera.

And since most of the pvp is centered around beating up of high sec players.

You get the picture.

As a dedicated WH explorer I am quite exited about the new WH systems added and most of all Thera. I don't see though how this is going to work since this will follow 0.0 space combat rules & every time we undock will be potential targets, at least not without somekind of limited safe zone around the npc stations (I hardly doubt this is the case). Seems like the worst place for the casual or dedicated explorer\pver & a very good place for the dedicated ganker\pvper. I hope I wil be wrong & Thera proves to be just a good place for everyone.

After all, why should some player spend hours roaming through lowsec looking for fights when they can just log into Thera?

The people who are out for non-consensual pvp (such as high-sec warriors) aren't going to leave for Thera, because any potential targets found within won't fit the psychological profiles (stupid, arrogant, offensive, bad with money, etc) of the targets they seek. Null dwellers won't leave for Thera because it can neither support any sort of prolonged stay financially, not is it capable of being subjected to force projection. Low-sec pirates aren't going to leave for Thera because any people found inside aren't good piracy targets, since anyone going there is most likely going to assume the worst. And finally, carebears aren't going to leave for Thera because sociopaths, CCP needs to remove pvp from EVE, Thera needs to be safe, etc etc.

And that is why this project will fail in its intended goal of being some kind of lawless hub. At best, it will be a place where some people go to feel cool for a while, or maybe we'll get lucky, and it will be really convenient for travel. But I don't foresee it being any more popular than your average NPC 0.0 system, or Amamake. Of course there will be lots of pvp inside, but it won't be replacing anything.

If anyone tries to hold this system in an organized manner, it will end up being something like Providence. That is to say, lol.


Thera looks like a great place to buy small goods. T3s and interceptors can reasonably warp in and out to buy/supply the place.

Why would you go to Thera when you can go to Jita?

I wrote some true EVE stories! And no, they're not of the generic "my 0.0 alliance had lots of 0.0 fleets and took a lot of 0.0 space" sort. Check them out here:

There are plenty of reasons to go to Thera. My only concern about this system since we got more details is that there are only 4 stations and I think they may be perma camped. If that ends up being the case, the foundational reasons for going to Thera will crumble. If you can't access the station, it'll be like there are no stations. ...so what's the point, than?

Fortunately I think the fix is relatively simple. They'll need to post some over-sized station guns on the stations, giving most players at least a chance of getting out of the undock area. I don't think anything needs to be said to CCP about this, though. We can just kick back and wait to see what happens. If I'm right than the problems with Thera will become apparent on their own. With CCPs rapid deployment of patches these days, they could fix it in a down time. If Thera doesn't deliver or isn't used, I'm sure CCP will simply make the changes required to get it where it needs to be.

Thera will take care of itself. It'll be molded into something useful, albeit in time. Just my 2 isk...

Even if it is permacamped, nullfied Cov ops T3s and Interceptors will be able to get in and out with proper bookmarks.

Its a great market to sell and buy small cargo.

Maybe you live in the middle of nowhere null sec? It may be quicker to do your shopping in Thera.

You'd still be less likely to find Thera than any other random wormhole that would inevitably lead to empire space. And the latter would be less dangerous.

...maybe. IF they don't get bumped off bookmark when they undock. I'm an avid nullified T3 operator when messing with the nullsec markets. It's not as cut and dry when undocking because your enemy knows exactly where you will be and n what trajectory when you undock. A little lag can be a real killer when facing a station camp. ...but yes I'm sure some will still be able to survive for a bit / most of the time. There are some really slippery people in this game.

I'm not really that worried about it, though. CCP will fix it if things need fixin', and I'm wrong in my EvE predictions as often as I'm right so wtf do I know anyway? I think this is one we'll just have to chill out on and watch as it unfolds. Blink

You're nuts. That being said, you could use a bit more color. HOWEVER (comma) <----- BIG however....

Even if there were an area designated as instant pvp, that wouldn't change the complexion of EVE as EVEryone KNOWS New Eden is that area and such a designation would be redundant. SO, I'd place the OP in the strawman argument zone.

We must accommodate the idiocracy.

I personally am looking forward to being able to quickly go somewhere and get a fight. You seem butthurt that now people won't have to roam for hours just to get a fight, I say good. Who the heck wants to literally spend hours trying to get 2 minutes of excitement?
