I am very sure this topic has been covered, however, my search doesn't seem to be pulling anything up for me.
- Ability to create coalitions
- Alliance and coalition taxation
- Alliance and coalition level fits
The most important part of eve for me, bar blowing up ships, is blowing up ships with the people you like. The community aspect of eve is why I am here, eve in many ways has many different mechanics to facilitate community building, that said CCP has promised us many overhauls when it comes to UI, Corp management, Alliance management etc. Before this turns into a rant on how this hasn’t been a focus for CCP and the fact this is the most important aspect of any MMO, none the less one that claims to be a sandbox. I think the community building aspect of eve is lacklustre in that, it does not facilitate very well, the idea of connecting communities or building them.
First off. corp and alliance management systems need a work on, big time! You can find countless ideas and common threads in these forums from QOL to full-on UI changes. I think what I’m about to propose will not be as effective without these changes, however, it is something i would like to see in the game.
Why do we have to rely on spreadsheets or 3rd party tools to be a part of, or administrate a coalition?
The current meta is;
it has been very clear for many years that coalitions exist, could this not be introduced? what are the problems of having such a system?
Alliances should have the option to join a coalition, similar to how the alliance - corp mechanics work.
- Shared standings
- Shared mails
- Coalition logos
- Easier structure management
- Coalition chat
The list goes on.
This also leads me to a point of taxation “oh no he didn’t” as much as people don’t like the idea of tax/rent this is the largest form of income in the game bar none. It is often the very foundation of coalitions and alliances to provide services for its members. Can we get an alliance tax system? furthermore a coalition tax system…
set taxation for specific corps in your alliance or specific alliance in your coalition, this could even be done through the billing system and or the current mechanics. There is no way to find out who is even part of said coalition without out of game means… does that seem right?
oh, the hours and hours of admin and spreadsheeting that would be done in mear minutes!
As these coalitions and alliances reach unreal levels of players, there is more and more of a need for these types of systems. Using 3rd party tools requires a lot of admin, why I ask, can CCP not make these very important community creation and administration tools? Maybe im missing something? why is it, this kind of thing cant done with ease?. Would you rather not have your eve communities spend more time playing the game and expanding their own communities reach. People are spending way too much time on makeshifting tools to cover a hole in the development of what is essential for a game like eve.
Why no alliance fits ccp?
Why no coalition fits ccp?
Why no share fits to selected group ccp?
I think its high time CCP introduced systems into the game that facilitate the roles people play in game.
A lot can be said on this and is probably for another thread.
The most important part of eve is its community, although spaceships are real nice! what is nicer is the tools to get to fly them more often.
