Player Retention Strategy
Heres my issue. I play eve 2-3 months a year due to hitting a wall with scanning, but that could be expanded from 3 to 6 with an added ease of life fix.
Theres times I have eve up in the background, not doing anything for 2 hours while doing something else and cant really be arsed to play this game, scanning around for 30 minutes of active gameplay to not find a cosmic site worth its salt around 3-10 systems
I wanna find 6/10s and above in lowsec aswell as besieged sites, but I cant be arsed to fly around in my stoopid astero scanning for an hour every day TO PLAY DAT GAME
Are you listening? I wanna blow up these sites, not play rabbit easter egg hunt for, who knows? 2-3 hours if you are even lucky enough to find within a reasonably quiet part of low sec to even begin with to attempt to solo these sites.
You have autopilot, now you have Autopilot 2. Or as you might discover it will turn out to be, AUTO PVP.
Sit in station,
activate Autopilot 2,
A specter of your caracter undocks the station in your ship
this works like a NPC with autocloak, autowarp, autojump and auto scan!
After 1-2 hours (dno balance) your specter has auto scanned 3 neighbouring systems, all while you sat in station and did nothing.
Maybe you could autoscan the whole region in a week, taking longer the more area you cover? I mean why not? I am not proposing auto clearing the sites, but just removing the easter egg hunt, getting to the content, starting it, and becoming content in the process!
Im sick of finding low tier ■■■■ for 2 hours, let me do it for 4 hours afk
idgaf just undock my astero live and fly it, but add insta cloak but slow scan for gods sake. What part of the scanning game do you actually thing is engaging? Aiming bows at rabbits is a lot more fun or slaying a really hard knight in kingdom come on hardcore with ■■■■ gear, thats fun! or running back the levels with the orb on Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup while titanian mammoths from hell are chasing you from the nether regions, thats fun!
But scanning? Thats not fun
Just my 2cents
