Like Anslo, Veers Belvar and other forum trolls, the only response should be...

Shut up Lucas.

Oh I see, so he thinks that NPC corp players will suddenly be social if they make some corps that they call "social corps", and that making it twice as hard for smaller corps to start wardecs with each other is a good idea, and somehow I'm the troll? To be honest, something from someone like you that means nothing.

I generally believe that people have enough intelligence not to vote for a self serving idiot like Tora, so hopefully he will never make it to the CSM, but if by a miracle he does, I give it 5 minutes before CCP gag him and kick his ass out.

Your opinions on :

- Being able to buy and use security tags in all stations in low-sec ?
- Being able to store x password for posses, in stead of just 1.
- Delayed local (and an upgraded D-scan/radar system to replace local period) in null unless upgrades are in place.

I actually think social-corps as a middle ground between NPC and real corps is a horrible idea, and just another carebear-proffed stealth nerf-hisec idea to make those that refuse to put mind in motion yet another mechanism to avoid wars entirely, when they are today already 100% consensual because you can just hide out in said NPC corp...

The answer to making wars meaningful isn't giving carebears both a 0% tax rate dodge AND 100% protection from wardecs with a 'social corp' abomination. (Tora, you listening?)

However, I do think overall I would still rather a Tora Bushido on the CSM who at least actually KNOWS what the f#ck he is talking about re: war mechanics, than a Mike Asariah (or null-bear) who would simply nerf the hell out of hisec war mechanics and kill the entire vibrant hisec mercenary community in the process.

Im not sure where our CSM's lost the f#cking plot on the concepts of HTFU and non-consensual conflict being CORE to what EvE is about, and in the quest for 'moar subs!' decided to throw the baby out with the bathwater, but I do believe Tora (and Sabriz) will at least seek TRUE balance with any proposed changes by CCP, not help CCP slit their own throats like a carebear or nullbear CSM who is CLUELESS about hisec mechanics.

I think it will do exactly the opposite. I want to drag people out of the NPC corp and into a normal corp. It's like when you let someone taste some food for free, hoping they like it so much, they will buy it themselves. So in this case, let them see why a corp can be much more fun then NPC, in the hope they create a normal corp. If they dont, nothing is lost, as they normally would have stayed in the NPC corp anyway. You can only win this way. I do agree on the tax thing. It shouldn't be 0% or it will just be a way to avoid taxes..

Ganking in high-sec
I think ganking is a part of Eve and I want it to stay, but not as we have it now. Right now it’s to easy to warp out of a station, gank something, warp your pod back to station and wait till the timer runs out. This needs to be balanced more. I would like to see people still able to gank, but only when you aren’t in an NPC corp and when you do, you will not be able to dock / logoff for at least 30 minutes. If you get podded and wake up in station, the station auto kicks you out till the 30m timer runs out. I also want the ganked ship, not to drop more then 25% of the loot. This way the ‘good’ guys at least have some way to get revenge and ganking for profit is reduced.


Well, several of these are just straight up nerfs to ganking - something that is already pretty much unprofitable in all case except for overloaded haulers or bling-fit missioner/miners - I would like to ask more about this station lockout. While I don't think it is feasible (or fair) as there is no precedent for a game mechanic where players are auto-ejected into space, I am curious about your intentions here. In your view would such a lockout/eject system replace the 15 minute criminal timer, or be in addition? If I were an industrious ganker and had a Bowhead full of gank ships in a safe spot, could I keep ganking?


My opinion about Ganking is the same as Lootwhoring on stations,

1.The Ganker should not be able to dock for 15 minutes , we all know he will pod his way out so he can warped to a safe en wait it out there.
2.As for the person that takes the loot of the ganked ship or any loot in general that isnt his, No docking for 15 minutes and work out a 'no warp security system" wich will prevent the suspect at that moment not able to insta warp to a safespot.

This will rule out 1 of the most irritation issues in high sec. atleast thats my opninion.

Second i dont see whats the fuzz is about on high sec wardecking, or why it should be nurved because a null carebear doesnt like it, The only 1 in my opinion who can talk about wardecks in highsec should be the top highsec wardecking corps. They know what is fair and what is not. Nerfing the **** out of it due to losing isk in highsec is not a mechanic faillure but a ALLIANCE faillure. Educate your members and isk should not be lost.

just my 2 Cents.!!

I added numbers to make my opinions more clear.

1. I wouldn't have any problem with that but I think having to travel in order to cash in your tags opens up the possibility of people getting popped with a cargo full of tags. Not that it couldn't happen, but it would happen less. With the system as it is now the tags are all being concentrated in a few systems, which makes interference easier. I don' think it would be a benefit to the game, but I don't think it would break anything either.

2. Are you talking on the ship end of things or on the POS end of things?

3. Upgrades to get local back. Hmm. That's kind of interesting. It would make being in less active systems much more dangerous, and wouldn't really change populated systems. I think the idea has merit.

If you go full darkside you'll get my votes back. If I wanted to vote for Nerfs, there's tons of options. If I want to vote for a violent and dangerous high sec, currently there is Sabriz.

That is key, NPC corp taxes s/b increased to 50%, these new bastardized 'social corps' a rate of 25%, with only full corps allowing the setting of rates by the CEO. THEN you are really incentivizing people towards real corps, and not using NPC or social's as a tax & war dodge.

Combine the above with having decs follow someone who drops from a full corp, and you are really cooking.

Seriously dude, CCP doesn't need any help or cover from our so-called protector-of-the-sandbox CSM's to slit content creators throats in the pursuit of MOAR SUBZ! We need Gandalf on the f#cking bridge saying YOU SHALL NOT PASS! each time a mechanics change is suggested that decreases non-consensual conflict opportunities in EvE.

Sadly yes, many players and bear-CSM's have just lost the f#ucking plot, and are swooing at the siren-song of moar subs leading EvE towards the rocks.

Be that Gandalf Tora.

Stopped reading at slot machines with ore points...
If ppl find mining boring then alt tab and watch a documentary.

30 min notification button for afks sounds like something provi ppl would come up with to avoid afk cloakers.
Maybe I like just sit and look at different locals in provi for 10-12 hours at the time.

Stop telling ppl what they cant do and start talking about what the can do.

You seem not to realize why "social corps" and other means of wardec-nerfs are necessary.
If one is wardecced, he must watch local, mine aligned and so on.
However if he does so, he could do the same in lowsec for much higher rewards. I mean what's the point of doing an L4 watching local, when you could do L5 while watching local? So if someone is wardecced, he is better off living in lowsec.

Now you can say that "everyone should live in lowsec", but then openly demand removing of highsec! I doubt anyone would do that seriously and expect the game to survive.

The only reason people live in highsec despite wardecs is that wardec-evasion is trivial: stay in NPC corps, be in a 1-man corp and just fold corp if decced. Or hide and avoid anyone noticing you. Each of these methods demand players to not interact with other players, which is both making them quit and prevent others from having content.

You need to realize that there is no possible way to move the NPC&1-man corp people into wardeccable corps. If you change something, they'll adapt and hide more. If you remove every possible way to remain wardec immune, they just find another game. Either way, you won't have them on your killboard.

Tora sees that and offers a solution: the "social corp" would allow players to interact without being insta-decced. At worst case there would be more subscribers to support the game. At best, they form a competent group and opt for being in a "real" corp.

I have to retract my previous endorsement.
Tora went full raging because I also hired another merc, Deadly Fingertips and started to fling poo.

This isn't just bad because childish poo-flinging is bad (he could just end our contract silently), but because it shows he can't represent anyone outside Marmite. Can you imagine him talking for a change that benefits Deadly Fingertips or other highsec deccer after he rather lost my 28B/month than let others have a piece of the cake?
