I personally hate Burner missions.

When puzzles are figured they may become boring. Null need missions, for solos and groups. Anoms are the most boring part of PvE ever. I tried to do them in null with rattle. After 3 days I've started to wonder what I'm doing with my life. I can't imagine someone could be doing them on daily basis, only mining was more boring, I even felt asleep once.


I do them on a daily basis, and i love it.

For me, the keys to the fun is not getting caught by neutrals, getting faction spawns and escalations (traveling for the escalations can be harrowing), finding new ways to do them (I'm having fun with Dual FoF missile Ravens right now, Machariel plus fof FoF/Sentry Fleet phoon is what I do when i really want to rake in isk and escalations) and the fact that they are a million times less tedius than missions (which make you dock and undock all the damn time) helps too.

Like mining it isn't for everyone, but as always, "fun" is subjective.

Anom changes: off the cuff it looks like each good system will support twice the ratters and lesser systems a ratter here and there. Call it double the ratters for the sake of argument.

Data/relic and plexes changes: twice as much exploration in nullsec.

WH changes: you say they are:

intended to ease some of the concerns around WH power projection without negatively impacting wormhole residents or eliminating the ability of Nullsec entities to roam through wormholes.


in a post phoebe world power projection is a joke and far more tedious. Now a nerf to WH power projection. You guys are chaining an anchor to everyone these days... what gives?

So basically you are doubling the amount of ISK that comes out of nullsec and nerfing movement into and out of it via wormholes.

All I can say is I hope this new entosis link capture the flag/whack a mole sov system works out like you are hoping because if its the reason for all these changes and it doesn't play out like you want... the effects of these changes will only solidify the positions of the stagnant nullsec for many years to come.

Not today spaghetti.

guys we must preserve the battle functionality of the rorqual at the cost of making it unsuitable for every possible task it actually excelled at by castrating its jump range

So CCP what are the stats on Survey Networks and Entrapment Arrays? Nothing here, nothing on patch notes. Is it top secret information?

i think they sacked the guys doing the rorqual upgrade and employed someone else that then thought banning isboxer for the miners would solve any future requests on the promised "special" rorqual changes..

I can usually gauge how good a decision CCP makes is by measuring the level of complaint about it from large nullsec alliances.

This one ranks about a 9.
