As one who has lived out of a POS in both Null and WHs, I hereby /sign that POSes need to be fixed.

*one of the huge number of people who refuses to own a POS until they are 'fixed'

We wormholers, even the ones who don't personally manage POSes, have been waiting for this for forever, don't turn your back on us now CCP.

Knowing the tortured hellscapes that are the lives of my friendly local logistics heroes, I would gladly give an expansion to them. Without them, we would do nothing. We would be nothing.

Scruffy wants a new POS

A small portion?

Let's remove the people who directly manage POS's from the equation. What's left?

Everyone who lives in a WH.
Everyone who flies a T3 ship.
Everyone who uses a jump bridge.
Everyone who uses any item made with any kind of moon goo.
Everyone who flies a T2 ship.
Everyone who ever gets their ship not dead, because someone else was flying a T2 ship and provided repair / support / enough DPS on the bad guy to keep them from dying.

Everyone who wants to sell trit to the people who're using products of moon mining and WH-harvesting (be it ABC / Fullerenes or Sleeper loot / salvage).

Mining / Mission Running in Hi-Sec - getting a POS where we could research / produce was a goal unrealized.
Then we lived in the hole for years - managing the POS's was our biggest headache.
Now we're out in Null-Sec - we deal with POS's every day. Our corp, our alliance, our coalition, we all depend on the towers as the backbone of our infrastructure.

There is no part of life in EVE, beyond maybe the first month of 'I can't afford / use the better gear' that isn't indirectly affected by POS's.

Fix them, and you will see more people investing their time and effort into them.
Fix them, and you will see fewer people burning out and leaving the game because of them.
Fix them, and you will see more emergent behavior as fewer artificial constraints prevent us from being the inventive and insane innovators our species loves to be.
Fix them, and you will see a more vibrant and engaged community, where more people feel the devs have a sincere interest in, and understanding of, the game we're playing - which is not always the same as the game you thought you were creating.

I hope CCP isnt canning POS improvements to introduce duels ( ).

WoW in space is exactly what EVE needs right now.

Seeing as how POS are everywhere- high/low/WH/null why not improve the quality of life for everyone who has to work with POS? It seems like a no-brainer to me. If they're not working on POS what in the world are they working on? More ways to nerf my welpcane?

As far as I am concerned, If CCP needs to focus on remaking the POS system, then so be it!

It is true, that not each and every player has a POS to take care of, but likewise does not every player run incursions or fight for a militia, and those two things both got their own expansion. Hell, even that stupid door got its own expansion.

And unlike those things, POSes are the backbone of the industry in eve and a central aspect in most major conflicts in all of New Eden. And even tho they play a central role like that, everything involving a POS is a chore. Setting them up, fueling them, shooting them, defending them...

Right now, POSes are a major pita. Do something about it, for fucks sake!

They've got sound reasoning behind it. just hope it's not going to be at the expense of more security in high sec :S

POST - New Modular POS's or at least fix the current ones please!

I have been patiently waiting for POS revamp/fixes or what have you for over two years. If CCP is going not going to look into it any farther, then I guess I need to evaluate my own needs and what games I should be putting my money into.
