Since I am about to forever leave EVE I could say a couple things before I disapear.
Ideas in that direction are fine, I will say your idea is about bringing a player driven content to the official game content, this is fine. Player driven content is the best content, is not that Aiko is delusional, it’s just that she understands what games are for, she could create her own story even if this wasn’t a sandbox.
About bringing the player driven content into the company’s driven content, that is fine, also this would finally let people accept highsec piracy. People in general are uninteresting, if you don’t make them sit and slowsly explain stuff to them then they do not understand stuff, you gotta explain everything and make sure they understood it.
Maybe bringing together player content and the company content is a solution, since the other players have lower IQ and they can’t wrap their heads around player driven content. Human beings who have higher IQ understand player driven content almost immediately, but the really ignorant humans can’t even understand even the basic jokes in EVE.
You are being smart here about officialy bringing player driven content into the company’s content, this would be pedagogical for our 45 year old babies around. Even tough EVE was always supposed to have ganks, people just think that highsec was supposed to be safe, last week I had to explain to a new player that you can be attacked in highsec and he got surprised, then I bumped a ship in front of him and cargo scanned him and he said “I’m glad I have you as a friend, I had no idea about this”.
So, CCP did great in adding the gank to EVE, but CCP could have done a better job in babysitting everybody into learning the game… ideas like yours could fix this old situation we have in our community.
I 'm not saying the idea has to be exactly like the idea you brought here, but it should be something in the same sense. This could fix things for the community, we don’t have to fix the game we gotta fix people by making they jump in this rollercoaster cart and take the ride, or at least the rollercoaster has to be there so they can see it and willingly dodge it or take the ride, an idea like that could actually save a chunk of EVE.
This is something that should be discussed with the most inteligent people we have around, being gankers and antigankers (lunatics out) and any kind of highsec pvper (baiters, wardeccers, lowseccers who occasionaly come up). Yeap, should have meetings and maybe a mailist between Aiko, you and maybe a few more and come with something reasonable. Don’t bring the extremists to the table, people like Lucas Kell or the Knowledgeminer because they just mess up any talk, leave the lunatics out.
Then come to the CSM showing them that the “heads” in the gank and antigank community came together with this solution. The CSM can’t say no if the actual “enemies” together both agree in something. Do just like the Perestroika Deception, known as the soviet scissors strategy, if you don’t know what it is then you shoul learn that if you wanna win in this.
The solution is about bringing a system that is fun and make people finally understand this part of EVE.
Alright, this was my post about the subject itself and how important it is chasing an idea in such direction.
