Well, they just buffed the numbers. Has that not helped? In fact, I actually have a host of questions. I mean, you say that they system needs changing, but you didn’t offer much insight into how things fair under the DBS. True, you did say that ratting activity is down, but other than that, you might as well have just said, “the DBS sucks. Please roll back.”
How much were you making before?
How much are you making now?
Have you tried anything in order to maximize your income (such as spread out, or rotate the systems that you rat in)?
What are those strats?
Have they been effective?
Has the ESS facilitated emergent gameplay opportunities?
Has this increased the likelihood that you and/or your group will fight neuts that come around?
Are more neuts coming around \ has your risk been dramatically increased?
Are neuts trying to steal from your ESS?
Who are you -large bloc, small unafiliated alliance, renter? (This is relevant because how you guys are being impacted by the DBS might differ from other demographics.)
Has the buff increased ratting activity?
Has the buff helped bring incomes back up to a more acceptable level?
Assuming that CCP is commited to the DBS (which they probably are), what would you change about the DBS?
Also, I used to fly EC’s during phase 2 of invasions. I knew from the get go that the risk to reward ratio was off, and had decided to make the most money that I could while I could. Thus, I didn’t get mad when they got nerfed. In spite of an obviously broken risk to reward ratio, however, other people did get upset. They didn’t seem to know or care about whether or not the content was properly balanced. The only thing that seemed to matter to them was that their income got nerfed. Thus, I have to ask. Is the amount of money that you are making under the DBS really that bad, and/or is the risk to reward ratio actually that terrible, or are people just mad because their income got nerfed?
Also, some punctuation would be nice if you make a particularly lengthy response.
