I'd like to better understand your views on these three. What sort of fix do you have in mind for the discovery scanner?

What would you like to see revamped in the alliance system?

Why are you personally not a huge fan of alliance bookmarks? Have you ever been in a multiple corporation alliance in w-space?


Discovery Scanner - the way it used to work was that you needed to have probes out and hit the scan button every once in a while in order to notice any new signatures in system, in short - you needed to actively search for new signatures.
With the introduction of the DS it became automated, and thanks to the Scan Overlay new signatures appear instantly on your screen. I would like to see a change that would either put a short delay between a new signature spawn and a player being notified of it or bring back the need of player action in order to show new signatures (pressing the scan button). The purpose, of course, would be to reduce the amount of free Intel you get from the system as it is right now. Other solutions might be viable as well, but I haven't head of any yet that wouldn't break the system entirely.

The alliance system - it was something briefly mentioned during the Wormhole Town hall. CCP Fozie stated that when the code enabling alliances to form was created, in order to meet increasing demand from the community, it was put in place very fast and without future changes in mind. Alliances themselves I wouldn't change - I think they work as intended (apart from the lack of roles), however the code is preventing things like alliance bookmarks from being implemented, at least from what I understand from the conversation with Fozie. It should get looked at not only because as stated above it would help with the development of new features and changes that would affect players on an alliance level, but also it ties into the Corp Role Management problem.
Which is why I think it should be somewhat prioritized by the devs.

Alliance Bookmarks - I have mixed feelings towards them. I understand the appeal, especially for wormhole alliances that occupy the same system, because it would fix the the issue of having to copy bookmarks over into a jetcan to be able to transfer them from corporation to corporation in the same alliance, basically what corp bookmarks did for corporations themselves. I endorsed the idea of corp bookmarks and tried to help with feedback on them back when they were in development. However Alliance level bookmarks, if they were to be implemented the same way the current system works, in my opinion would create a lot of issues. Wormhole space isn't the only area that would take advantage of this system, and we need to remember that. The main issue here are roles and their current state that doesn't allow alliance-level roles what so ever, which would mean that implementing alliance bookmarks right now would create a clusterfuk in the ability of large alliances to control who creates, who deletes and moves the bookmarks, which is a huge issue if you think about it. If anyone can fiddle with them in a 20,000 people alliance, then anyone is free to grief a large entity, rendering the system unusable.
A similar issue goes for w-space, where as I assume all the transit bookmarks would quickly become alliance level BMs, and with the limited role management one would only have to have a single spy in a single corporation in order to disrupt the operations of an entire alliance (an invasion scenario comes to mind). And while it is not unheard of for one player to take down whole alliances, I'm not entirely sure that it's a good thing when it comes to a small gang environment like W-Space.

I am not against alliance bookmarks at all, I simply want to see them done right and I think more discussion is needed in order to iron out all the pros and cons, because it will have a huge impact on gameplay for everyone. It needs to be done along side Role Management revamp. Without it, it would be simply a broken product.

Personally, I would think that someone fluent with the goings-on in Wormhole space would be able to easily and succinctly clarify the issues of importance. A bullet list in itself is very telling.

Your other passion about increased interaction with the community is more ephemeral and less rigidly defined. By its very nature it requires more language, word count, character count, pixels-per-inch, or whatever brain-dead measurement you want to apply because it's about communication and relationships, and not so much about mechanics that have often been well-discussed and can be clearly detailed and specified.

Based on the disappointing performances of some of the previous W-space candidates, I'm looking more at what the prospective candidate has done previously in W-space and for W-space as opposed to any fly-by-night promises he or she makes in a pretty campaign speech. You have done more to educate and inform and support W-space life than the rest of the candidates combined.

Good luck in your campaign.

I'm confused by this. You mention some issues that would certainly need to be resolved for alliance bookmarks to be usable, but assuming they were resolved, would you then be in favor of them?

Also, isn't EVE a game about risk? If people choose to expose themselves to the risk of someone messing with/deleting their bookmarks, is that really a reason to oppose the creation of the feature? How is the issue any different to the risks one takes with POS hangars or with corp offices?

Assuming the issues would be resolved I would be in favor of alliance bookmarks, given that the community would still want them.
Perhaps there is a different solution that would make it easy to share bookmarks corp-to-corp which would be an improvement for w-space and we wouldn't need AM's.

Of course EVE is about risk, but broken mechanics and exploting them should not be part of the risk.
Players need to have a choice of what level of trust they give to other players, that is one of the few reasons people risk living out of POS, because they can limit the amount of assets that are exposed through corp roles. Only if someone puts effort in, in order to get the required roles or passwords or what have you (trust) he can then steal all the assets.
If alliance bookmarks were introduced without any level of restriction as to whom has access to them, it robs players of that ability.
Why have corp roles at all? Why have POS passwords? Why have passworded containers? People need a certain level of security in order for corporations to function. I think that will (and should) extend to the proposed alliance bookmarks.

Now, assuming proper mechanics were put in place that would allow players to control access level, and then someone put effort in to gain the required clearance and messed with the bookmarks to do harm, personal gain, I would be okay with that. It is still a risk.

First of all, I really enjoy your videos. I'm always checking for new uploads!

I do have a question for you. What is your opinion on the delay of K162 sigs as recently proposed by CCP Fozzie?

Well, I think the scanner changes in odyssey went a bit too far and with w-space in mind it has become a bit too easy to spot incomming wormholes, however given the feedback, a timer is probably not the best solution to the problem.
Perhaps making it so you need to press the scan button to refresh the signature list would be a better solution.

How do you feel about the idea of C4 dual statics? As a current C4/C2 dweller, I feel that if every C4 hole had a connection to another C4, little else would need to be done to make the class desirable. More connections means more fights and more money. I definitely like the idea to create some sort of 'subcap escalation,' but I think the greatest issue within C4 space particularly is the lack of fights.

I personaly like the idea to some degree, it's a matter of what statics, statistically, would have to be introduced to make it viable. Another solution would be increasing the number of statics leading to C4's from other classes. The number of class 4 systems is nearly equal to C5's and C3's and 2's, balancing out the number of connections between those 4 classes would improve things a lot, i think.

I agree that some of the subsystems need to be balanced. Right now, considering how versatile t3's are supposed to be, only a handful of configurations are being used. There is also a question of specialization - are T3's supposed to be better at roles that their T2 counterparts are specialized in, what are we really paying all the ISK for? Some justification can be found in the skill point loss you take upon destruction of T3's.
I think if we removed the SP penalty, bring T3's in par with T2 hulls, balance the least used subsystems to make them more viable would be sufficient to adress the issues people have with the current meta, where the ISK you pay would directly translate to the versitality strategic cruisers should provide.

Hello.

Currently the Serpentis are the only pirate faction in the game that don't have a rated 6/10 and 9/10 DED complex available to be run. These sites have been on the "coming soon" list for quite a few years, but no further news or information has been released. Would you be willing to request that CCP introduce these sites to the game so that areas like syndicate that rely on running sites as the main form of income can continue to grow and prosper?
