If CCP Canned the Wardec Mechanic Tomorrow


(Lew Dicrous) #1

…root and branch. If they tossed it and put the pillow over the face of HS mercing, where would you go? What would you do? Quit EVE? Branch out? Take up mining? Riot in Jita? Discuss.


(Nitshe Razvedka) #2

Id can it just to see a tearfest from girly mercs, only to switch it back on again after the flood of tears.:rofl:

Loved the wailing of entitled grrls when the Loc Agent mech was changed.:joy:

:grinning::grinning::grinning:

adapt or die n all that…:sob:


(Sethyrh Nakrar) #3

They would flood the board with salty threads to change that back right now, because Lowsec and Nullsec are a little harder, because people there tend to shoot back.
Yeah, it would be funny as hell to watch that.:rofl:

I still think, Wardec doesn´t belong to highsec(was a dump idea anyway) in this manner. And in Lowsec and Nullsec only fluffbunnys care about that. As ist should be. Just my opinion.
Yeah. Either CCP should change it, or drop it. Like CQ.


(Scipio Artelius) #4

Why would they cry? Lot’s of them directly and through alt Corps + many nullsec entities, own many POCOs and Citadels in highsec, all of which would be completely untouchable from that point forward.

The first thing they could do would be prevent anyone outside their Corps/Alliance from conducting PI across lots of highsec and massively impact the Carebears that called for an end to wardecs.

Would be poetic justice.


(Markus Jameson) #5

How exactly, you can’t stop others from doing PI, you can stop them using your POCO or you can make its tax rake so expensive they won’t want to, but there’s nothing stopping anyone launching directly without using the POCO.


(Scipio Artelius) #6

Yeah good point. Orbital launch would still be available (and such tear causing PITA because of the small size compared to using a POCO, time delays, cost and additional logistics time).

Of course, orbital launch only gets stuff off planets. No way to move products between planets to make higher tech materials. That limits people to only making what is available on the planet itself.


(Markus Jameson) #7

Yup, the smaller launches would increase the time & effort factor there’s no getting around that :wink:


(Markus Jameson) #8

Never bothered with it myself, didn’t want the hassle of keeping track of the extra costs every time I dropped some stuff on planet for that so I could work out if I was making a profit or not, just stuck to what I could make on-planet, lot simpler, bit like me :confused:

If you know what your doing there’s a fair few tier 3 products you can make on a single planet.

But that aside there are certainly a lot of higher tier PI products you can’t that invulnerable POCO’s could certainly create a monopoly on for their owners in large swathes of hi sec.


(Scipio Artelius) #9

Yeah, each planet has 1 T3 product that can be made totally from materials available on the planet:

Barren: Transcranial Microcontrollers.
Gas: Condensates.
Ice: Synthetic Synapses.
Lava: Smartfab Units.
Oceanic: Vaccines.
Plasma: Robotics.
Storm: Ukomi Super Conductors.
Temperate: Industrial Explosives.

No T4 products can be produced from a single planet’s products. They have to be combined from multiple planets.

Kind of off topic now, but yeah, the removal of wardecs would lead to a lot of crying from carebears when taxes increase to 100%, or POCOs are locked out all together.


(Dom Arkaral) #10

I’d sit with my popcorn out while rivers flowed all over the place.

Then again, those who aren’t risk-averse will simply go to low/null and continue having fun there.

Here’s some suspense until it happens :joy:

And now watch the price crash for those products as everyone who reads this & is as lazy as me switches production to them & floods their markets :wink:

Probably won’t happen, but it’s fun to think it might :slight_smile:


(Tipa Riot) #12

This would be fun, because at the same time all corp-owned structures in highsec would be going …poof… and no new could be anchored.


(Remiel Pollard) #13

I don’t mind actually. Provided that no one in high sec could make any isk, run missions, mine, own any structures anywhere, or do anything that might be considered advancement. See, like it or not, even when you’re missioning, you’re doing pvp. You’re generating isk, modules, and salvage, that then go into the market, which then go into producing new ships, along with the ores you mine and the PI you produce. Those ships, new modules, ammo, all sorts of things, then get sold on the market, where players compete for the best price, both buying and selling. Then, all that stuff gets blown up again, in nul, wh, low, high, everywhere. Then those players need new ships, and the cycle starts over.

What you high-sec bears who want to get rid of wardecs don’t realise is that wardecs exist because of CONCORD. They exist as a direct result of your need to feel safe. They are part of the risk of high sec. They are a challenge you must overcome, one way or another, if you wish to progress. So sure, get rid of wardecs. As long as you get rid of everything else in high sec. No trading, mining, PI, POCOS, Citadels, missions, nada. Alternatively, get rid of wardecs, and get rid of CONCORD as well.

Balance, kiddos. You keep going on about how wardeccers ‘wouldn’t dare go to low/nul/wh!’ but I don’t see any of you going there either.


(Dom Arkaral) #14

Remember Rem, this is a “what if” Thread
I doubt it’ll ever happen lol


(Remiel Pollard) #15

I’m aware. I’m just playing along.


(Tora Bushido) #16

I would join The-Culture and have fun in 00. Or join CODE and start ganking. Or start up a new Fedo farm?


(Dom Arkaral) #17

Pretty sure you can colonize a whole system with the amount of fedos you have :stuck_out_tongue:


(Saeger1737) #18

Become a lowsec pirate… They are almost the same thing as a highsec merc


(Erin Davis) #19

I’d probably just go back to lowsec. Or maybe finally give wormholes a try, the one area I havent spent time in.


(Clockwork Robot) #20

If that happened, various entities would carp, cry, and complain.

There would be statements like “slap in the face”, and “summer of rage”, with ironic accusations that “carebears/casuals” were to blame, and words like “unsub”, “catering/pandering” would be peppered here and there.
