The Gate is not spawning often enought, only for a few hours per day. Usually from DT to 13:00 evetime and sometimes from 18:00-19:00. This makes Abyssal PVP more or less unavailable to players from the USA, Australia and East Asia. With the current mechanic the problem is that players have to do abyssals that don’t want to pvp in order to make the gate spawn.
Simple: Just make the gate spawn permanently, no matter how many ppl farm abyssals. I am sure this increases pvp activity in the arena drastically. There is no lack of pvp pilots, there is the lack of the gate spawning.
another issue that should be looked at is stalemating, 25% resist drop is not enought, add more of them.
It is time that something happens there, there are so many posts here on the forums and on reddit and CCP did never answer to any of them.
