POSes affect me, my members, and even some of the applicants I see and interview. They are MUCH more than just a shield to warp to (although the E-UNI one has been in "war" mode since I joined), and not having them be as important as docking stations, planets, ships, wormholes and jump gates hurts the credibility of EVE Online as a truly realistic and awesome space MMORPG.

ok, unless I'm misreading that, that sounds like more than a "small portion" :P

Don't mistake fact for arrogance, supposition for fact, or disagreement for dismissal. Perception is unique in that it can be shared or singular. Run with the pack if you wish, but think for yourself. A sandwich can be a great motivator.

The opposite is more viable. You can attack the subs. I already have a plan to do it actually.


But...You would need some sort of group of super rich mega lords to have even the slightest effect on the PLEX market...

The graphic was just a picture of an example of a plan, not the plan.

With the increase in shiptoasting, the Report timer needs to be shortened.

CCP should feel like we're simply voicing our support for a feature we deeply care about, not that we're a riotous crowd trying to ransom them into developing a feature we care about. Thus, being rude or mean is not the way to go.

POSes are crucial to this game in aa lot of ways, like: production of t2 elements, capitals, living in wormholes and nullsec, and even just satisfaction of having your own base in high sec. So fix them :)

Hey CCP, are you sure this is your "small part" of the community?

As the owner of a wh-based alliance I can also echo the sentiments of so many of the people in this thread.

POS's are a necessity for us, and yet in almost every area of their initial setup, configuration or subsequent operation they are a source of irritation, soul-sucking tedium and hassle.

None of this is new. The gaping security holes have been known for some time. Whole threads have been devoted to the analysis of areas that need improvement and suggestions on how to fix them.

I don't particularly want some POS-based Jesus feature in 18 months. What I need is CCP to actually commit to doing something about this mess now, and in a timely manner.

I'd happily take immediate iteration on asset security for example even at the expense of some major revamp that might be many upgrade cycles away. We need improvement right now on so many areas that putting all of it off is simply a bad decision.

As for the rest of the wh-based stuff, Klokvarg (Post #85) summed it up for me most succinctly. Wormhole dwellers have had the ****** end of the stick now for far too long. Fixing POS's in some way would go a long way to improving the daily Eve experience for all of us.

Again, I'd like to remind folks that are actually reading this thread to keep things civil and constructive. Going all nutso will only hurt the chances of getting CCP to work on POSes.


While I agree with this to some point, however how long should the playerbase play nice? This has been discussed and almost unanimously support from the playerbase for years, yet it has remained a elephant in the room. While many would not wish to resort to rage, it seems to be the only effective measure to get CCP support, as history would show.

Development on this should have started shortly after Apocrapha, especially with the explosion of POS use when wormholes where released. Yet it does not seem that CCP even cares or has even started working on it.


Lets try playing nice until the planning process is done, to start with.

Please fix the POS system!

WTF?

I'm starting out in POS business currently. Everything is planned and prepared. Most of the stuff required to run this for at least two years is ready to go in the trade hubs.

All I'm waiting for is to get the standings sorted out. This will be sometime in March.

I even subbed a new account to support my other industrial toons for this. Small portion of the community? Evil

Get going CCP! Nobody requires you to deliver this in a fortnight. But please get going!

Remove standings and insurance.

Good to hear.

I was always of the opinion that the POST-Incarna CCP was way better at listening to and communicating with the playerbase than the old CCP.

Thankfully this thread has stayed very polite and constructive. All we are emphasizing is that POSes are probably the area of the game almost the entire playerbase wants to be properly done.

Also think of the allure to newer players... Your own small POS (even if you can dock only 2 cruisers worth of m³) somewhere in a bookmark/safespot in your highsec system... It's not just an older player thing. Most new players LOVE the idea of their own little home. Just theirs. If it's cheap enough, they won't even ragequit when it gets destroyed after they've been wardecced. :p
