SBU´s or / then TCU.. so in a fantasy dream world it is doable by one lonely golddigger out in no man´s space...

of course reality says otherwise and i know that.

the fighting that usually goes on in order to do so (or prevent it) is merely added on "game value"

0.0 isn't for your "small corp or alliance" though

what you are saying is that sov is broken and the "good ones", the people playing eve for the fun and real pew pew (not F1-lemmings) don´t give a rats arse about sov anyways ?

Yes.
If sov is so good ask a lot of vets why they ended up giving up on it.

Most of the big alliances are always recruiting - they need a stream of new players to replace those jaded with F1'ing in the laggy blobs.

You have to shoot station and ihub as well. If shields on structures regenerate, perhaps you'd have to use an easily hotdroppable ship...

Yes and theoretically a one man corp can also take down all those tech or neo moon towers and place its own there to get rich beyond any measure.
But in reality this won't work, so I don't get your point.

Definitely, more newbies on the way !! Look forward to their t1 frigate tackling and webbing you, or perhaps their t1 cruiser lowering your targeting range.

Theoretically, you could win EVE, but everyone here on the forums is losing really badly.

you see, sov 0.0 isn't supposed to cater to your risk-averse, asocial playstyle, nor is it supposed to put 10 man corps on equal footing with empires

0.0 is for empires, not 10-man corps looking to ~stake their claim~

Carebear here. Add a mechanic where corporations of the alliances have control over a system and its sovereignty and when they split from the alliance and join a new one the sov gets transferred. So it won't be only structure grinding and supüer blobbing that can change sov but also political intrigue and instability.

Of course that would require a more complex sov structuring and proper motivation to split the alliance control with the member corps and not just create a huge giga corp that takes the sov responsibilities. Something about risk/reward.

I agree in the most part, it's extremely difficult for small corporations and alliances to gain sov over space, especially these days. That being said, i'm a strong believer in "anything is possible if you put your mind to it", so over time and with enough effort and help of like-minded individuals, it could be possible to gain sov. Just would be extremely difficult. Cool

When we first started out, we wanted to own sov, so we threw ourselves in with various null alliances. But its not the same, just joining an existing group. You're just a nobody cog in amongst a giant machine. Unless you're willing to be a very active contributing member, you'll likely not go far up the ranks. We soon got bored of a random politics, hassle and constant CTAs.

I believe wormhole space is the last true bastion for small corps and alliances. You only get a single system, but its yours to call home. As long as you can stop someone taking it from you that is. P

Post with your main, like a BOSS!

And no, i don't live in highsec.  As if that would make your opinion any less wrong.

Always amused by these threads.

It's like telling a small business to just become a billion dollar multinational corporation if it wants to compete with them. If they can't do that, then they're just bad at business, right?

Theres lots of small dudes that live, love, fight and die in 0.0 but dont belong to any big group. in npc Venal, Outer Ring, Pure Blind, Syndicate, Fountain, Stain and Delve. Sure they dont have sov but there isnt really much of a benefit to sov right now besides creating defensible positions.

New Eden is your oyster, take it.

Yes.

If you decide to create a small business that produces a product or service that a huge multi-billion dollar corporation already produces better and cheaper than you can, you deserve to get stomped out of existence. Small businesses should stick to doing things they can do better than the "big boys" can.

This is hard to understand why?

Its all about the ISK...

Nothing more, nothing less, Mittens, Shadoo, G.W. Bush ect are all maintaining the status quo because it fills their pockets with I$K.
This is the real reason half of 0.0 is a blue ball and as a lil nemo you simply dont warrant the attention nor do you generate income.

Deals regarding Sov are made in smoke filled backrooms on some jabber server, you know the type.
And Time and Effort mean very little, as soon as you threaten the profit margins of a 0.0 coalition your going to get stomped out.

But.. empires rise and fall, history is prove of that and one day you may find yourself in the position to become the next great leader.

ps, Did somebody see my tinfoil hat? I'm getting a lil paranoid here....

Do not give me likes them 101 likes arent a accident...
