07 Candidate!

First, thank you for your time and effort (both present and future) in representing the capsuleers of New Eden! They’re much appreciated.

I’m preparing to cast my vote in the CSM12 elections. After reading the information you submitted, though, I still have a question.

By way of background, I started in Eve as a hauler, moving freight in T1 industrials and gradually working my way up in both ships and cargo. However, I repeatedly found my progress impeded by gankers who would destroy my ship and steal my cargo. In low- and null-sec space, that’s to be expected. You place your bet and take your chances. In high-sec space, however, this is very frustrating. Why have high-sec space at all then? This frustration drove me into anti-ganking, and I’ve been a proud member of Thomas en Chasteaux's High-Sec Militia for several months now.

So, my question. Where do you stand on high-sec ganking? I’ll concede that ganking is a legitimate style of game play, as CCP has ruled. But I also feel that it should be difficult and dangerous (for the ganker) in the 30% of New Eden designated as high-sec space. In particular, I’d like to see CCP tweak the game mechanics so that the criminal flag generated by looting a ganked freighter in high-sec space follows all players who handle that loot, and otherwise make looting more realistic. (Thomas en Chasteaux's ideas, not mine.)

As a member of the CSM, would you present such an idea to CCP? Would you push for its adoption? What other game changes might you consider to make high-sec ganking more difficult and less profitable?

Regards,
Cochise Chiricahua.

Let me sneak in here for a bit.

/rant

As someone who ships billions a month, I would like the warzones between empires to be extended, no continues highsec between the major trade hubs. At least 1/2 low sec hops on each high way.

Then the highsec ganking on traderoutes would be a whole other discussion and local tradehubs would be booming.

As for mining, the bulk of mining volumes is centered in certain systems in EVE (see the regional economical reports by CCP Quant). The people mining there ask to be ganked.

In a game where everything is based on risk vs reward, people should understand that it is stupid to mine in systems with huge number of people with mining equipment. Go mine in Khanid, or Kor-Azor and you are the king of the Ore belts (saying you want to mine in Highsec in the first place). No gankers in the whole constellation.

Please mine smarter, not more political correct.

So here is my thoughts..

So keep in mind Ive been ganked my fair share.

Ganking is mostly preventable in a few ways.
1. Move less value at 1 time
2. Webbing alts
3. Mining in scarcely populated systems
4. Other ways possible.

Now is it particularly engaging gameplay when it happens. No. Is it fun .... for the aggressor yes. For defence its more or less a suprize colonoscopy and has and does cause people to quit eve.

Thats the scope in which my opionion is formed. Now its been nerfed several times and I think freighters are roughly where they need to be. On the risk vs reward balance.

The existance of counter play is nessesary. And I think it would be better to look at unlimited bumping and setting a limit to it vs making a major change again to ganking.

Hello Commander Aze

I read your AMA and agree that PI needs an overhaul so you have my vote.

As someone who identifies as a high sec candidate, what are your thoughts on keeping time-poor and casual players operating in high-sec engaged and retained ?

I agree with much of what DMC has to say, and your suggestion of tags for faction repair has value to corrrect seriously negative faction standings.

However, standings, are still important to PVE play over and above just not getting shot by the navies.

In addition to tags for standings repair, Can you push for Agents where you can run missions or do tasks to gain positive faction standings without negative standings for the other factions. Other than L4 Epic arcs.

These may require more effort or lower rewards to be balanced, but it would save situations (IE Thukker) where it is near impossible to ever pull back from an early mistake as they have a negative relationship to just about everyone.

Thanks, PS You have my vote.

so I'm part the pve revamp they are working on is a huge part of this. additionally creating new and more interesting missions and content that scales for more people could be alot of fun

So there is a huge opportunity here for selecting mission types that a person is willing to accept. I think making filters on PVE content (optional ones) like turning away burner missions and missions that don't effect faction standings or positively effect faction standings. Or even that you only want to go against certain factions would be beneficial. for instance there are 2 missions I will literally quit for the day If i get. Buzzkill and the Assault. Both missions suck for different reasons. but would be nice to filter out.

Also I want more incursions of different types. this will create new fun ways to make isk while creating a challenge for new and old players with hopefully some ship losses.

As always I'm willing to hear out any ideas or refine these

Any Industry related questions or conserns?


May I chip in... not really industry related, but as trade empire with several bulk supplyers, I really would like to replenish my orders (like resupply existing orders). Pls suggest that to our DEVs. It is really annoying that you have to repay taxes to keep stock on market if you want to top up on an order,.

that would actually be a huge quality of life improvement Good idea

I just really want to reinforce this XD

Drones. Drones are a means to an end. An end to the ruthless Caldari 'progress' machines. An end to the barbaric 'redemption' proposed by the Amarr. What they see as chaos shall be my perfect order, merely beyond their comprehension.
