There will be some of you that no doubt read a list of changes, and say "**** it" and quit without even giving the new system a chance.



I don't think the negative reaction is to the list of "changes" (plural). Its mainly to one change. No docking. In the threads and communities I have seen faction war players have been against this change pretty clearly with a few exceptions.

Now I haven't tried it out but I think the mechanic is pretty clear. We won't be able to dock in enemy controled faction war space. Do I need to fly my ship to a station on sisi and get the message "you can't dock here" to understand how that will work?

I don't know that anyone is saying that they will rage quit. I think the players have been expressing thier views on this. Yes people like ranger1 who does sov null sec might now be interested in faction war. Other null sec players think this is fine or even great. But by and large lots of faction war players (especially those who do allot of small scale pvp and plexing) would prefer they did something less drastic.


Players that do a lot of small scale PVP are the ones that would be affected LEAST by this change.

Now I noticed you said plexing as well. That sheds a lot of light on the true objection I think, and I'm not trying to throw stones here.

I'll admit the ability to plex easily isn't of any great concern to me, mostly because it's not really the main point of FW. I will say that it does help a bit to understand that for many FW pilots that may not be the case.

I'm talking about the war dec stuff, kill reports and new modules


I don't think it is about FW.
They are starved for missiles and explosions and now start biting each other until Sisi is up to feed them what they hunger for.


Very much this.

Not so fast... if you have one of these "Auxiliary shield booster" fitted... then yes, you can't be neuted out. But most people who active shield boost fit do so to PVE, and you don't want to take a cap booster sucking Shield booster to PVE, because they would suck for efficiency.

But would be hella nice on a Sleipnir or another Booster preferred PVP ship.



Exactly, This addition, at least at face value, seem directly aimed at making active shield tanking a serious consideration in PVP. Caldari will likely benefit as well.

It's an interesting idea, I have read there's no XL booster but shall have to confirm once Sisi is up.

Only reason a lot of PVP ships have cap boosters is the active tank module, if the booster itself ran from cap charges then your cap wouldn't be affected by the booster, but if you capped out then you might have trouble keeping tackle (scram/web or long point/mwd) but your tank would remain in tact.

Interesting idea for sure, some ships could even fit 2 shield boosters no doubt, but whether their hp/cycle ratio works out to be the same or worse than the current 2 slot situation will have to be seen.

Soon you will be able to get a fleet tempest for the price of a normal tempest if these changes go ahead

Have some vision and look ahead, Although I may be missing something, Think about the economy

There are various types of roaming gangs, but all have one thing in common... they roam. They are not dependant of a safe station to dock in when things heat up, or having a stash of different ships and modules to swap out to if they meet appropriate resistance.

The concept of a roaming gang being unable to function unless they have a safe harbor in the target system/area is ludicrous.


A thousand times this. Ranger gets it, and its attitudes like his that will bring success in the new FW system. ....


I'm sure they will because he likes null sec and this change makes faction war more like the game he likes to play.

There just shouldn't be any question that the luxury of security in every station in lowsec leads to more pilots being docked up, more of the time. This in turn reduces the number of fights to be had. .


No this will just mean people will stay docked in their non faction war system waiting longer for a "serious fleet" like ranger one describes forms. This is already the problem with faction war and new eden generally. Few go out in the smaller fleets so its just a matter of blobbery.


Hans Jagerblitzen wrote:


Whether station docking "ruins" Faction Warfare will be completely dependent on whether FW pilots are willing to be brave and make pushes into enemy space, and I'm confident enough in our skills that gangs WILL find a way to get in and seize plexes and be able to avoid the major blobs.


Do you agree that this change will make that harder to do? If you agree this change makes it harder to avoid the side with the larger blob would you agree this is a step in the wrong direction?

I quite like the majority of changes coming to faction warfare, with the exception of being locked out of stations if they keep the current 5 hour flip time with no timers. revisit the timers so I cannot lose my system and station because im asleep (wow, this would promote fights too!) and I will be a happy man.

Has anyone tested system flipping yet on SiSi?

Like Goliath said, its a really good idea to test out everything fully before people throw up feedback. Cool
