A major issue that stops newer players from going to unsafe space are bad experiences with gatecamps. Those gatecamps stop people from moving out of high-sec.
More seasoned players would use statistics or specialised ships or scan down wormholes in an effort to avoid them. Newer players simply do not have the experience to live far beyond hi-sec. So how can we get them in the outskirts of space.
I think the already existing wormholes are perfect for this. Maybe with some tweaks that make collapsing more predictable.
All that should be changed is showing wormholes in everyone’s overview, so everyone can use them.
This would allow people to travel around more freely in space. The benefits seem large and many.
- It would be easier to move resources to set up a new ‘home’ for players.
- Players can more easily access parts of space they normally cannot get to. Allowing them to experience and actually do something outside hi-sec for longer than a minute. And maybe they’ll even come back.
