So I had a rant about the problem and didn’t explain myself very clearly. Which is why a lot of carebears started crying that I was a big bad meanie and should just man up and suicide gank…
CCP Designed EvE online around a societal system war was part of that system to create checks and balances, However with the changes to the war dec system which prevents you from either A Participating or B Declaring war on another corporation unless they own an upwell structure in space and you do aswell.
While in theory, this may sound like a good idea and to CCP it did at first… but I am here to explain why it is ruining the game and allowing destabilization of the economy.
in the past if you wanted to war dec a corporation you forked up 50,000,000 isk and declared war for 7 days there was a 24 hour period before war began and your enemy / opponent had time to prepare.
Many argue that war was abused just to farm newbros, and while some did abuse the war mechanic many did not, it was a means to protect certain areas of space, to control trade routes and control ores / minerals within high security space.
You may argue that you can still do this by suicide ganking however I am here to tell you that is an ignorant idea to keep throwing 10,000,000 isk ships at people just to disrupt them and force them to leave an area is isk negative to yourself.
War allowed you both to engage one another in battle in all areas of space, however now people hide their upwell structures in holding corps and pay / get the assistance of larger mercenary groups to protect them. While earning upwards of 600mil isk / hour running abyssals in highsec or earning billions of isk // day doing boosted mining fleets and incursions.
I support their ability to do these things but with measured risk. suicide ganking is on a decline because its an isk negative activity, new players aren’t being challenged and fear branching out, war mechanics will give them that much needed exposure to pvp to make them feel like moving out of high sec and enjoying the game for more than the limited content empire space has to offer.
edit: destabilization is due to the unchecked farming.
TL:DL Don;t support carebearing, holding hands never taught anyone, CCP needs to revert war changes.
