Any last minute discussion/points of interest to raise with CCP @ fanfest???




1) Would it be too controversial to make it so tech3 cruisers can't go in plexes that tech2 cruisers can't go in?

These might be more controversial and not necessarilly as easy to accomplish:

2) Perhaps tech3 boosts won't apply in plexes where tech 3 cruisers can't go in. So your loki booster bonuses will not apply to your dramiel in a minor plex. But it would apply to your dramiel in a major plex. That might get more confusing, I agree, so it might not be a good idea.

3) Boost the tags (either quantity or quality) in minor plexes. Killing them is not worth the ammo.

Have a great time I wish I was going.

@Hans:

An easy request on behalf of FW - the show info option for FW alliances should list their FW affiliation just as it's displayed next to a corp's logo.

5.) Lack of highly visible alert or intel system for when territory is threatened. If Faction Warfare is meant to deliver pickup and play PvP, an alert system (Captain's Quarters TV screen?) would get fights much faster than relying on aimless wandering patrols. Even just adding alerts in real time in the militia office tab (like POS fuel notifications in your mail, or broadcast history in fleets) would be great and increase frequency of PvP fights. *FIXED!! Brand new Faction Warfare UI coming in Inferno]


They did a pretty nice job updating the UI. But is there a "highly visible" alert or intel system for when territory is threatened? We see when an area goes contested but we saw that before.

3.) Faction Warfare missions easily farmable in a Stealth Bomber. Result is missions that encourage PvP as intended (by nature of being on overview), but do not encourage diversity of ship types or cooperative gangs to complete. “PvP” that surrounds current mission system is primarily limited to interceptors chasing bombers. NERFED!! Station Lockouts coming with Inferno will drastically reduce mission farming for the losing faction, forcing them to PvP in order to access agents again


Nerfed?? You are counting station lockouts as a nerf to stealth bomber mission farming? It seems to be a buff to cloaky ships. But yes the losing side will not be able to run many missions. That is true, but their lp is worthless anyway.

4.) Imbalanced EWAR fielded by mission NPC's means some missions are easier to run than others, resulting in imbalanced market value for faction items and causes certain militias to be flooded with mission farming alts. *CHANGES COMING!! Inferno brings a scalable LP store depending on Victory Conditions


I don't see what the scalable lp store has to do with npcs imbalanced ewar. Inferno's scalable lp store makes this less balanced in favor of the side that has the easier npcs because they can run plexes easier thus making their lp lmore valuable.

Inferno did address 2 of the 10 items you and the community raised. I think you are stretching inferno out of shape to claim it does more than that.
