You keep writing this, but both Ima and I have been saying your logic is faulty. You are relying on “just so” reasoning vs. looking at how these things in fact tend to actually work out.
It is clearly intended as a nerf, to make war decs more problematic to prosecute.
That is a safe bet.
My God are you really this literal?
Ima just got done telling you it probably won’t happen like you think and why. War deccers already use neutral logistics alts. When those alts start repping their PvP mains they go suspect…and people don’t attack them now. Why would somebody attack after this change?
The problem is people in HS are disorganized while the war deccers are not. War dec players are going to be flying ships specifically fit to accomplish their task. They will implement strategies and tactics to help them achieve their goal. They will work together in groups. They will have comms and so forth.
The HS people you think will suddenly jump in generally:
- Do not want PvP at all as a general rule.
- They are not organized.
- They won’t be doing things like focusing fire on one ship.
- They won’t think to bring logistics.
The first one alone calls into question your claim. 2-4 also undermine your claim in that a single guy is unlikely to attack a group of players or even a group of pilots where most are alts.
Maybe if your average HS denizen was inclined to organize, use doctrine fits, some get into logi ships, focus fire, etc. then okay we might see something interesting. My guess is even if the war deccer were to go suspect nobody would shoot him.
Or if they did, they might respond in other ways such as bring a larger group. So we might see war dec corporations/alliances merge and get even bigger to ensure that at most hours of the day people can log in and get content. And with more people out there on the war deccers side, it will be even less likely somebody is going to start shooting somebody who goes suspect.
So, you might be right, but history has shown that no…no you probably aren’t.
