I know this has historically been a fairly controversial topic, with a large swath of PvE dudes being opposed to the idea for obvious reasons. However, it would go a long way to solving some problems in the game.
Ratting and mining in NullSec is now almost completely safe. It’s true, don’t argue, you can’t. Yes ratters and miners do still die - the stupid ones who were using the bathroom or not aligned or whatever have you. A half intelligent PvEr at the keyboard can get out as soon as neutrals appear in Local - especially if they have one of the many (probably illegal) intel “program” networks set up that alert them when there’s hostiles as far as 10j away from them, or are watching one of the many streams that have been set up to remotely watch Local chat in other systems. Players openly brag about these setups on reddit. They’ve existed for years, but are now used widely and openly. It has to stop.
This allows ratting and mining with impunity. Right now we don’t need more mining and ratting. We need more ships blowing up, more destruction - we need to slow the ISK faucet of NullSec and sink some materials. If players are exploiting a game mechanic, that game mechanic needs to be changed and balanced.
Other changes need to be made as well, such as more intelligent NPC tackling (or perhaps a structure that tackles) in anoms, etc. Make NullSec dangerous again. Make players actually take risks for the rewards.
