I knew the point you were making and I had seen it myself when trying to get old high SP players to go properly after Marmite at the time, the thing is that they just did not want to do it as it was so boring. When I describe hisec as a place which is mainly made up of nullsec alts who avoid contact, it is merely to point that out.
I agree with you that the mechanics are largely fine, I don’t see any need to restrict the number of war decs, I think that the cost to do a war dec on the Goons at 500m is way too much for smaller war deckers, for example I wanted to war dec the Goons when in hisec and when I realised it was 500m I was like WTF!
Well I think you are a good player, in terms of getting results in this game, this is really more than anything else about attitude.
The get out of hisec is really to recruit new players into their ranks.
And Teckos here started whining about how unfair avoidance is, in truth if both sides are whining then its pretty good, I think the mechanics are actually good, but it is the attitude of the players that needs to change on both sides and that is why I went for the EA idea per constellation which gives some sort of watch list capability, becuase it is use ful and offers a taregt for the more adventurous to shoot.
I never said they are useless in wars, you are projecting that on me, I pointed out that a new player does not have that luxury to split training for some time. Aaron posted here and I know he had a new player corp in hisec and he shocked a war decker by leading his corp properly, I wish more people would do that, as I said people need to nudge them in a certain direction.
But they will need to avoid VMG, Public Enemy and P I R A T like the plague because that is the non-fun zone. Well up until they have got very good of course, we can always hope.
Because they tend to be the ones whining about it the most and saying that they can’t play, it is most noticeable on new players setting up corps. Do you read the forums or just cherry pick what you want to read.
Already noted, the dumb nullsec player who does not check for wars tend to fall like flies.
You are just projecting your own bias here, yes nullsec players have a healthy contempt for hisec war deckers, but having looked at war deckers in hisec for some time I know that they are very well set up and effective. I spent a lot of time in hisec and was looking very closely at hisec mercs, at one point I had all the war dec players I could find on watch list and I had all their neutral RR and spy alts too.
