I just started living out of w-space, and it took me all of 5 minutes to cement my undying hatred of the POS interface. If it's enough to make me ever regretting having to live out of one when I'm not even doing anything more complicated than use it as a glorified GSC, then I can only imagine the sisyphean hell of the people who have to manage these rube goldberg machines of life and death full time.

Yes please fix the broken POS system and not something that isn't broken which ends up broken cause you tried to fix what was already fine. Thus creating your own mess and more work, which seems to me as a conniving way to escape the players demands.


POS management is broken, it needs a fix. Do it.

Hey CCP... if you don't submit resources to working on pos mechanics for this expansion... what would they be doing instead?

This will probably be the sad truth. We will see more Dust integration then we will POS improvements.

Christ knows how the W-space guys put up with it.

I've recently been looking into reestabilishing a presence in wormhole space, and while a staging POS would be a useful asset for combat, I seriously can't be bothered setting up all those bloody batteries. The current POS management is a sysyphean task, and like others have said, I feel that's the reason so little people care to manage POSes currently.

Needs more posts.

Modular POS will give so much nice niches for logistics.

Any chance of implementing Walking In POS's? Big smile

The number of people involved maybe small but they are nearly all that section of the player base CCP Seagull thinks are important, namely "enablers", they deal with the mess that is POS everyday and it takes a lot of their valuable time. CCP should ask what these people would be doing if they were not fighting with POS for large sections of their online time.

While browsing another forum I came across this which says things a lot better than I ever could.

The logic being employed is dressed up better, but is no different, than the old mantra; new features sell better than new fixes. If an investment is not made towards finding a solution to the usability problems, things are probably going to start going to hell again.


I'd hate for us to go down that route again.
