Strange I always thought plexing was the only aspect to system control. It just means something now. Exactly what we (the FW community) asked for.

I personally think the FW specific aspects of the latest "update" are absolute garbage.

CCP took the most boring, painful and utterly flawed aspect of FW...and now made it the central aspect of "control".


While I agree these are annoying bugs and rat balance is way off, if a game feature is ****, what does it matter is it works properly? Now that they have revised the FW system balancing the rats is a logical next step, which they seem to be doing.

Should have fixed plexing - rat "balance", glitches, capping - looooong before they made this terribad mechanic as "important" as they did. Glad they're "interested" now......kinda late tbh.......


This confuses me, this is a sandbox, you are never forced to play the game a certain way. Still not sure what you are upset about but if its plexing, then do not plex.

Sorry...I asked for very little of what was actually implemented.

Plexes to have "meaning" - sure, but not like this - not by a long shot. I was not in favor of denying docking rights, especially like this, in the least. Not plexing is always an option (I don't have to rely on FW LP to fund my PvP) ...until your station system becomes endagered. Sure, not an issue for us in Nenna right now, but it will at some point. I don't like the fact that most of the squids moved back to frikkin hi-sec after it took so long to get them to move out in the first place - lol.

Docking rights and LP for plexing have done nothing for dealing with/limiting farming alts (i.e. the 'old' cloaky missioners who never fought). IMHO, it's worse now than before.

Ship changes and LP for kills are great changes, but everything associated with plexing - especially before the mechanic itself has been fixed - is borked. I don't have the "lust" to play this game like I had before the patch. I took a few days off to watch a mini-series on TV (was during my prime-time Eve time) and found myself not really hankering to get back like I have been in the past. The whole "feel" of the game is off for me since the patch.

I don't know...just not on board with the direction this has us going...

If the cost of more pew is the loss of massive numbers of systems to afk plexing alts, then I'm all for it. Hopefully the influence of no-skill alts (both offensive and defensive) will be nerfed out of the war at some point.

You'll pry my EZ Mode LP making alts from my cold, dead hands.
