As a long term vet and I hear this a lot from fellow players eve is becoming stagnated. The nullsec landscape is dominated by wealth and capital fleets. Gone are good old sub cap fleets, roaming fleets etc No one wants to fight unless they can win, or who has the biggest capital fleet on standby.
The number of titans and supers in game is incredible, we are seeing the the consequence of that. Fine CCP if thats how you want nullsec sov to become but then lets bring back the good old pvp corps and alliances that just want to have real fights like we used to.
CCP have massively upgraded null sov with stupid wealth but haven’t really don’t anything with low sec and npc null
We need to overhaul low sec and npc null as a priority.
Question : What benefit is there to anyone to live in low sec or npc null?
Answer : Absolutely nothing
Making ISK to really benefit a growing pvp corp is pretty much non existent. No one wants to mine, anomalies are just pretty worthless, and FW is a bit of a mess, is restrictive and well not everyone wants to do it anyway.
NPC nullsec is no better than low sec. Its completely rubbish. There are pirate missions, but are usually just in one constellation so its whoever is the bigger alliances (usually large sov alliances taking this as well). Plus pirate missions just screw your faction standings too.
There is simply no reason or point to living in any of these areas.
What do I suggest
NPC Null :
Allow anyone to upgrade a system and drop a IHUB where only PVE Upgrades can be made (Pirate Detection etc`) . Let them live and thrive there and build something, in turn should generate much more content, and there is something to fight over, and generate ISK making options. Why should only Sov Null have this.
Make Pirate missions agents available everywhere from lvl 1-4
Other wise what is the value of living in NPC Null. There simply is no reason to.
Honestly I have never understood the reason for low sec apart from piracy and gate camps. Its a completely useless area with zero value to live in. Missions are no better than high sec, ores are really no better, you might as well go to live in nullsec. We really need to see a reason why one should move from high sec to low sec and the benefit of doing that. Low sec just seems to be this frig war battlefield : boring…
FW needs a huge overhaul
Add more valuable ores into low sec regions (ABCs)
Add more anomalies
Give me a reason to live there and thrive!
We need a massive update and soon
