Nullsec player's hisec alt != hisec player

I was thinking of cranking up my indy accounts again. They all lapsed out this summer.
I thought that after the improvement in mining safety for high sec players that maybe CCP was recognizing the importance of this large base pf paying customers.

Guess I was wrong, and my indy accounts will stay dormant.

But hey, don't worry CCP, I am sure I am in the ever-so-tiny minority, and extremely few high sec players will pull the plug on their accounts, plus you will gain oh so many more accounts when manufacturing migrates to low/ null sec.

I am also waiting for the other shoe to drop when the the ex-goon lead dev follows through with his threats (about 4 months ago) about nerfing high sec T2 manufacturing / invention.

So yeah, CCP, listen to the CSM which has zero bias against high sec.
Completely accept that you will net GAIN subscriptions when you hammer high sec yet again.

I am sure it will all work out perfectly.

No he bumps highsec miners and suicide ganks them, all activities that can only be done by players actively living and playing in highsec.

That was five years ago, this is now. James315 is a highsec player, as evidenced by his writings about him doing highsec things.

So how would you define a 'highsec player', if someone who plays in highsec doesn't necessarily qualify?
Is there some sort of badpost quality that makes a highseccer who he is?

Tippia doesn't leave his/her trade hub station but sides against 'traditional' highsec positions all the time. Issler runs a highsec mining corp but (I'm fairly certain) feels highsec is too safe. Do they not count as 'highsec players?'

The only thing which is Roll PUH-LEASE about this whole thread is the people who think this'll actually be a problem for anyone.

Id define them as one's that don't give a rats ass about null or low sec.

So, "hisec players" are players who has absolutely no clue about huge swathes of the game?

Sounds like the kind of player I want on the CSM, because they'll have good and balanced input on which direction to take the game. Roll

So if a "nullsec" player is thinking about the interactions between the highsec production and their own use of the items in nullsec, they're not a "real" nullsec player either huh.

No need since I know attitude of nullseccers: I, Me and Myself! Hisec players should pay to their overlords!


Quote and Link that, then.

And again, you made a specific claim:

It will be reduced to 50% because you nullseccers aren't happy with let's say 75%.


Why aren't you prepared with evidence to support it?

hey remember when we had a pubsec CSM and they showed us how much they don't care about nullsec by talking to greyscale about things like jump bridges
