Here is my idea,
Pirate faction characters
So new players aligned somewhat neutrally with most NPC factions but mainly a new recruit as whichever pirate faction selected. These characters will be spawned in null-sec within a very small sector of systems aligned to said pirate faction and these systems tailored to give a soft landing into the game but has a very quick path into being a null-sec player.
New t1 pirate frigates and low tiered ships for maybe frigates - destroyer - cruiser - battlecruiser - indy
with the caveat that they are on par with all other t1 ships and specifically not having faction tier bonuses
I believe this would give another choice for new players to DIVE into a completely different more risky and challenging introduction while also having a direct line into what is widely accepted as the ‘real content’ of this game where player null sec entities more than likely developing sectors to getting these players into their groups
My little idea as an old-newbro (tried to get into the game numerous times and this is my n’th attempt)
