Good day to you,
So, first and foremost I ask that I’d be NOT moved into the Main War declaration thread.
The goal of this thread is to explore the idea of WarDec structures and design them so that they avoid the problems cited by CCP during EVE Vegas, rather than the WarDec system itself. Plus the Main War declaration thread has been started by someone who is against the idea of a War Structure.
Ok, now with that done.
So, during EVE Vegas 2018, CCP said they were considering the idea of using a requirement for a corp wanting to declare war to have a structure.
However they have identified several points that were seen as problems for the idea, as shown in this pic:
In case you can’t see the image, the problems are:
- Existing Wars
- Transferring Structure Ownership
- Mutual Wars
To this list I will add:
- Dominance of Large, Siege-Dominant, Blocs
- Synergy with Social Corps
- Price Tag/Characteristics of War Structures
Some materials for inspiration:
I had previous Design Workshops, especially one about Structures that would be tied both Wars and Corps:
And I also wrote two articles on a potential War Structure:
So the main goal is to resolve the problems CCP identified, and clarify what WarDec Structures should be about.
CCP has raised that they would be looking at the forums for discussion on that subject, so I invite everyone to participate in as long as it is with the goal of making WarDec Structures work.
