In their current state, wardecs hit harder the players who know less about the game -a demographic that accidentally overlaps with the people we should be more interested to have around, aka newbies.
EVE is bound to die around november of 2021. As much as this is CCP’s fault, i still think that I should do something to prevent it, or delay that moment.
We don’t know what CCP is thinking about wardecs, maybe they don’t even think about it, maybe wardecs aren’t even an issue compared to whatever keeps them sleepless at night (if I was them, the passing of the highsec carebear as a demographic would certainly make my rest uneasy).
But, just in case that someone is thinking about wardecs, and just in case someone is thinking that a mechanic whose aim is to prevent people from playing a game they’re paying for is questionable at best, and in case they think that maybe using structures as an excuse to create emergent PvP was a good idea, then they will know that at least some players are thinking the same.
With my idea, you could one-man wardec a structure, shoot it, and take care of anyone coming to defend it. Would be like hitting a gong: it’s not about making music, rather it’s a sign: “here be gudfites!”
