It kinda is a cop out answer.
Finding more friends is not always the answer. Nor should it be.
Se what happens on the Chinese server. That exact philosophy has brought them to a state where one group, basically, owns half of the game.
And it isn’t like these capital dropping groups are ‘that’ big. Some are only 20 man strong.
They just have the isk to field them, and it is to little or no risk to them. That does not sound like eve to me.
Risk free capital deployment.
Low-sec should be lawless, yes, but reserved for capital wielding groups? Really?
In my mind, that is more a Null-sec thing.
In Low-sec it just excludes a ton of people and a plethora of different engagement types, when the tactic and deployment philosophy is so widespread as it is.
If i wanted to fly with a hundred or thousands of friends, I would move to Null.
I can. I just don’t have any interest in that type of PVP.
I remember when Low-sec was the place to go for roams and interesting engagements. It isn’t any more. Haven’t been for some time.
Null-sec offers more of that content these days, but also involves a lot of politics… Meh…
And to be clear, My suggestion to fix this, is just that… A suggestion.
Capitals would still be insanely dangerous to dance with. But they would also be subject to the same risks as any other ship in low-sec. Seems fair to me.
