I don't think time is a big factor. We've proven we have time.

It'll be a factor when an entire alliance gets their alts out for everyone to shoot

Now that I've got time, and a proper keyboard, some comments:

Refactoring Crimewatch, and tearing it into little uncommected pieces is a very good thing. While it may, initially, create more bugs, it will be /significantly/ easier to debug. And new changes are less likely to cause unforeseen consequences.

The suspect and criminal flagging. As long as there's a decent consensual PvP method, rather than can flipping, this also looks good.

Do something 'illegal' and you're no longer protected by Concord.
Do something very illegal, and you're going to be popped.

What wasn't in the slides, but was said, was the Concord battleship alternative 'deathray' idea, might not be instakill, on very illegal activity. Might be a warp scram ray, then the death ray a few seconds later. So yes, you can't belt hop one step ahead of concord for a second kill. But you have the same chance otherwise of killing stuff.

The ability to just buy sec status is a nice one. As well as the new ways to earn it. It'll need careful balancing, to prevent farming, but there's only so much farming that can be done. Recycling alts with low sec status is an exploit (if it's just because of the sec status), so there'll already be something in place to watch for it. I'd hope, at least.

Woo! CSM XI!

RR giving dock/jump timer is just another buff for the blobs. Make it high sec only imo. Pirate take sentry aggro...isn't that enough? If no then how about increase logi hp or insurance payout?

Thank you for confirming what I have long suspected.

-3 accounts soonish I'm thinking, this is a complete ******* farce, even by the standards of CCP.

WoW does WoW better than EVE ever has, will, or even can (try building in a PvE component that isn't an archaic, tedious joke, first).

Why can't you get this through your head, and stop trying to make EVE, WoW? You'll never succeed at it, and you bloody well know it. What is so hard about this?

Lawl, you don't even know how PvP works in WoW, do you?

For that matter, you can still be a douchebag in high-sec with the current proposal. You just can't do so without consequences (GASP OHMIGAWD SO SCARY).

But seriously? There's always low- and null-sec, those aren't going away anytime soon. And again, noob retention is kind of a big deal. So deal with it! Twisted

Wait... what are you complaining about? The only people who will be annoyed by this are high sec can flippers... and I don't really see how this changes that much, other when you jack a can everyone can shoot at you. That's probably the way it should have been anyway. It won't deter the ninja looters, I can tell you that.

If you steal from them, then they shoot you, you'll be able to shoot back. All this will do is:

A: Allow everyone else to shoot you.
B: 'stop' people stealing back from you, without understanding the consequences (because people are stupid)

You'll just turn off your safties, and not be bothered.


Of course, this introduces the fun concept of a bouncer on the asteroid belt. You steal from someone's can, they try to blow you up. Big smile More PvP

There are consequences to ganking/PvP in hisec.

I don't give a flying **** about WoW: I just know that this is dividing the sandbox along explicit lines whilst, apparently, eliminating options, which is not what a sandbox is supposed to be.

Teaching noobs how to work in the sandbox starting with a revamped NPE, instead of just giving them a mining gun, a civi gun, and teaching them how to shoot red crosses or rocks with nothing about mechanics, is how you build a good, long-term EVE player who "gets it."

But can't have that, when we can just break things already broken even further, now can we.

Quite right, and it wouldn't deter me, either (might just go ninja-salvaging again, at that.).

But this is drawing a line in the sand of the box, as it were...That's not a good thing, in a sandbox MMO.

I didn't explicitly say I was going-dark, just that I'm much more seriously considering it than at any time since the Incarna debacle.

And if I do, then my stuffs go to friends, sorry.

I consistently get the impression that changes to highsec gameplay are made without anyone in the process having the foggiest idea about what actually happens in highsec.

Only option this is really eliminating is the risk free ganking of a noob in a mining ship.

It is opening up other options, say:

A missioning fleet from multiple corps, dealing with a ninja looter (who, let's be fair) isn't really there for the loot.
'anti pirates', not losing sec status when going after pirate in lowsec.


And /significantly/ cleaner code. Which is always something to strive for.

Woo! CSM XI!

I want to clarify here: when I'm racing another explorer in a Gurista Scout Outpost and he pops the tower, will I be able to steal the loot from the can at the risk of him engaging me?

Because if you break that mechanic, you've taken away something that was JUST FINE.

And if someone wants to whine about how it's not fair that I took from "their" can, what about the fact that I did 90% of the damage in room 1 to unlock the gate and they just got lucky and landed the final blow on the tower?

There's a lot more to consider here than "that's my can because I shot that rat".
