FLEX Gates

(zluq zabaa) #11

Hm in that case I wonder why it has to be limited to Sov Null.

(Cypherous) #12

Because sov is required to anchor those gates, they may eventually expand them in to NPC null but historically they have never allowed achorables like that in NPC null to make that space worth less to alliances looking to build those types of structures, they won’t bother expanding them outside of null because people will just build too many super highways, it will also allow them to deliberately avoid any of the random low sec systems on popular routes

Just Googled it btw

You’ll be able to set an amount in your wallet under, “Automatically Paid” that you’re comfortable with. :psycsm:


(Rexxar Santaro) #15

Though who knows where these gates will lead us.

(Trey-Gowdy) #16

Good question. I should have taken one :frowning:

(Herzog Wolfhammer) #17

What’s this? You have to strike a bodybuilder pose to activate the gate?

I hope they don’t and actually increase fuel / jump costs based on per ship per mass basis.

As for PLEX to jump, if I understand this correctly you can already set an ISK cost per jump, nothing stopping anyone from converting that ISK into PLEX.

It will go like this:

Botting / multiboxing / RMT corp joins a big nullsec block.

Botting / multiboxing / RMT corp will pay off the nullsec block on a monthly basis (just like they have always done and continue to do so) billions and sometimes even trillions of ISK and/or provide them with materials to build more caps.

Botting / multiboxing / RMT corp will build “public gates” with price per jump and use the generated ISK for more RMT / botting.

The big nullsec block will gladly defend their gate(s) because they will have free jumps and still be paid by the Botting/multiboxing/RMT corp. This will go on for a year, or X years.

Someone will eventually slip up and the whole Botting/multiboxing/RMT corp will be reported to CCP and about a year or 2 later AFTER that and after enough ■■■■ storm explodes in the public forums etc. CCP will finally take some token PR action and give some of them, but not all a 3 day warning ban at which point the Botting/multiboxing/RMT corp will simply strip the SP and make a whole new corp elsewhere to rinse/repeat the process.

In the meanwhile the big nullsec block that protected them and have been a part of the whole thing will put their propaganda officers to work and we will get the following:

We didn’t know they were bots !!!
We’re too big its impossible for us to tell the difference !!!
Really guys we hate them as much as you do …
etc. etc. same old blah blah blah

That is how things are gonna go with that.

Ok…are we talking about the new smuggler stargates on the test server?

(Aedaxus) #20

How about “Anywhere to Jita” ?

(Lugburz) #21

dont forget the “in under 20 jumps” bit.

(Ima Wreckyou) #22

The killer-of-dreams gates? You know, when you find them as a new player and then think “Wow! I found a hidden gate!! Where does it lead? Can I join the pirates? Can I use this to smuggle stuff?” … half an hour later… “Oh I guess it’s not working and just a mission background object :cry:

(Gosti Kahanid) #23

Maybe something to add here, you don’t pay per jump, but for every unit of liquid ozone used for your ship. The bigger (heavier) your ship, the more you’ll have to pay

(Trey-Gowdy) #24

:rofl: No, they are in 0.0 and they actually work. I’ll get a picture of one for you. :rofl:

You contradicted yourself, friend. You “do” have to pay per jump BUT it varies based on the size of your mASS.

*But…I fear that we’re talking about two different things. Jump bridges vs “new” Smuggler Star-gates. I’m still investigating. Look in your wallet on sisi for the NEW tab.

(Ima Wreckyou) #25

You mean the Flex gates?

(bigsteve) #26

These new jump gates use liquid ozone to jump, it is stored in the jump gate its self
At the moment in time, no matter the size of ship the same amount is used.
Only tested with a hauler and a Rorqual.

there is an option to tax jumpers, no idea how it will work as i did not have access to tax area of my corp.

(Trey-Gowdy) #27

This ↑

(Trey-Gowdy) #28

It’s a new tab in your personal wallet :money_mouth_face:. You can set it to your liking.

Then, if you activate a gate and it falls within “your” preset parameters you will automatically jump. :up:

(bigsteve) #29

Best thing i have noticed is jump is right next to board.
Wonder how long it will take till someone will miss click and looses something expensive.
