Reading the minutes of the meeting I feel the CSM completely hit the right points but also failed to convince Fozzie the solution is not to penalize players for seeking out content. In my eyes, the game was a lot of fun when I could jump on a JB route and get to the action quickly. I also liked being able to move my caps in hours rather than days.
I’d like to suggest the beacon is the mechanic that should be investigated. I believe the beacon is the source of the issue. I don’t have a solution but I can point out it’s flaws. Rookie ships being used as cyno beacons, the relative ease of training alts to perform this task and therefore it’s ability to project force is considerably unbalanced. I mean a rookie ship could/can be the vehicle to project 1000’s. This is why I believe the focus of a solution to force projection should be the beacon and not punishing players for seeking out content.
Related to JB’s once a pos has been established and JB’s are fueled the act of jumping is relatively passive. Same chain of thought here, the act of jumping to a beacon when on a JB should be the focus and again, not to punish people for using the JB.
