pos's should be something that a corp is proud of rather than the horrible mess they currently are

Also, "small portion of people" affected by POSes reporting in.

I feel like CCP thinks that wormhole space is only a small part of community. Maybe we are but we all live in POSs. All 5% or so of EvE population. Im not even counting high, low and null.

Usually POSs are put up by people who are instigators of things so easier system would make them burn out less. If current CCP wants to make life of EvE organizers easier they must fix POSes.

I'm not always running a POS, but when I do, I hate it.

I can pretty safely say that all 255 members of my alliance will be affected and pulling a u-turn like this is a pretty poor show. We've waited patiently now for 4 years and its time for us to get some love before you go back to 0.0.

Also @CCP Seagull - Im calling you out here, how can you say "We will start working to give the ”Enablers” better tools" while simultaneously ignoring the biggest enablers for an entire area of the game, and thats not even including low and null, or even high sec poses.

In fact, heres a list of players who will have a massive QOL improvement following a pos revamp:

1. Wormhole Dwellers
2. People living/building in null and low sec without a station
3. people researching in high sec
4. People who collect moon goo and do reactions
5. by proxy anyone who flys any t2 ship, or fits a t2 module
6. Anyone who does t3 production or reactions
7. by proxy anyone who flys a t3 ship
8. Supercap producers and guess what
9. Anyone who has ever flow or owned a supercap

The list goes on. and this is just a list of activities in game that *require* the use of the pos at some point so suggesting that people who use poses are just a small number of people is plain wrong.

Maybe we should all go ruin the jita monument again to get the message through

Are you kidding me?!

They can't be serious, giving a blanket answer like that. How can it only affect the people that manage them.

I'm sorry but a few months ago they were determined to change the POS system for the better. Now that they have looked in to it and have seen it harder than what they thought they've just given a blanket answer because they don't want to put the hard yards in. Mainly because it's the opposite, it actually affects nearly everyone and they don't want to tred on any toes.

CCP: The current POS system is horrible at best and even worse for us wormholers. We deal with them every single time we log in and will have to after you've changed them as well. I would rather an updated changes POS system to the currently broken one.

I don't see what else could be on the cards.. this is the oldest mechanic in the game, you've changed everything else already there's nothing else to change. You can't say you're just going to add useless s*** without fixing the POS system first, just a waste of everyone's time.

Bad call CCP, bad call.

I do not personally interact closely with POSes but they affect me and those around me, and I think it would be a mistake to call those who are affected by the usability of POSes a 'small portion of the population'.

+1, fix them.

POS and Corporation/alliance management need some attention.

Thanks in advance.

Seagull: Enablers are the people who make the logistics for these large-scale things actually work.... And we kind of have a history of treating these people like…****. We put these people through a lot of painful, unnecessary work.

The approach that I want to take, is that if we look at these people and design exciting things for them, and make their lives less like hell doing the things they want to do anyway, that will create all kinds of interesting dynamics in EVE Online as a world.

After using POSes a lot in my early career in null but especially now that I have been mainly in wormhole space for the last year, this news made me die a little inside, I'd love to see CCP live off just a POS for a while to see how outdated they are and how much better they could be!

At this point, anything CCP says when an idea is still in early "wouldn't it be great if" conceptual stages is completely hollow. They love talking about grand ideas, but when it comes time to actually implement them, they start singing a very different tune (or in this case, stop singing entirely).

"Look any reason why you need to talk like that? I have now reported you. I dont need to listen to your bad tone. If you cant have a grown up conversation then leave the thread["

I logged in at work when I'm really not supposed to, just to post in this thread.

POSes need work, and have done for years. I don't know one person who thought fuel blocks were a bad idea, yet they were mostly a POS thing. Something that apparently doesn't affect many people. People love them.

I know many people across all sec areas who either hate POS management but have no choice for their corp/alliance, or like me, have done enough of it that they want nothing more to do with the stupid space tamagotchi.

I've spoken to CCP Unifex at a London meet, he isn't a stupid man.

Sort POSes out. It makes sense.

In a few moments you will have an experience that will seem completely real. It will be the result of your subconscious fears transformed to your conscious awareness.
