Bah

Null-bear threatening HS Carebears.

HS Carebears whining their isk making is being disrupted.

Bear v Bear!

At least **** might get interesting for a while.

Otherwise move to low and enjoy doing whatever the hell you like without much hassle or bullshite!

That is the Way, the Tao.

Balance is everything.

I want to personally take the time to assure you that this would simply never happen. Its a complete logistical impossibility and horribly time consuming. It would require completely soulless person who enjoys sowing misery with little to no explanation why. Then you would need a few thousand of them since one guy can't do it alone. One big fat neck beard or one who has recently lost a lot of weight by eating ham and has recently dressed up as an admiral or commodore. So it would have to start with a guy like that getting orders from some kind of person who likes yoga, dire wolves and a love hate relationship with Jaegermeister. Okay so you would need that combo going and then thousands of sadistic mischief makers to follow along.

Of course then there is the entire logistical impossibility of wiping out all the POCOs and putting in place new POCOs so Hi Sec pays a hefty levy or Imperial Tax if you will. I mean to do this would be like shutting down Ice mining in Hi Sec and making a bunch of sniveling virgins cry loud enough to CCP to get mining ships a resistance buff so they can sit in front of a computer humping a rock. Ironic if you think about it because while they hump that rock their genitalia is atrophying from blood flow restrictions caused by a sedentary lifestyle and radiation from your laptop that you shouldn't actually sit in your lap stupid.

So now that you are done realizing "oh my God they are shriveled!" I just want to reaffirm that no entity in this game would want to wipe out POCOs purely for the fun of it and such a logistical feat would require a veritable swarm of neck beards. If such a group was around you have to ask yourself: Is it better to be at the right hand of the devil or in his path?

Did I mention we rent now?

Ah haha hahahaha, that read made my day. Thanks!Lol

None of the PI products have started rising in price. If this was going to have any real impact, speculators would be driving up prices already.

True, they are only punishing hisec PI, where margins are thin and planet output is low.

This will mainly effect noobs income.

I'd be surprised if there are any COs or POCOs in Hi-Sec at all once the smoke clears.

From my own thoughts, plus the words echoing in this thread, this is the most likely outcome. Why would the null bares want to have POCO's that are expensive to build, difficult to defend, and would not really have that much of an income verses the cost of building them? But, on the other hand, why allow the competition to have resources in which to compete in the economic marketplace? They don't need to erect POCO's all across high sec. They only need to burn everyone else down in order to drive out competition.

theyll waste ALL their money wardeccing hundreds of corperations and wasting tons and tons of time and resources to kill each POCO. And they will be spread out through empire, so some people may be able to fight a war

This makes sense! CCP tempt ISK-wealthy griefers to spend more ISK on wardecs, buying tears. ISK-sinks are good!
