That is what I wrote. However, before the watchlist change, at least some people had fun with them. Now almost nobody has any fun with them, as there’s only killboard padding left. I think that’s arguably worse.
But wardecs in particular aren’t the topic at hand here - they are just an example of how CCP have - at least in the past - not followed up their changes to the game with more adjustments after having had some time to see the effects. Now they are at a point where they really need a complete overhaul. But even if CCP decide to overhaul them, it will be impossible for them to know if and how every change they make will play out, until they have seen how they actually play out, because Eve players tend to not always do what CCP expect them to. A fire-and-forget approach does not work, no matter how well thought out and “wholistically” planned it may be.
Right now, there’s the change to Heavy Interdictors and ECM: CCP just changes that stuff without having a solution for the wormholers relying on the mass changing capabilities of HICs, and without buffing the now arguably weaker ECM ships right from the get go, because they want to keep an eye on the situation and make further adjustments once they actually know which adjustments are needed. I think that is the correct approach to the situation, but people are justifiably worried, because CCP have in the past often failed to do exactly what they claim they intend to do now.
