I’m still fairly new to the game but I made 2 PVP characters, one is doing FW and one is going into random directions on the map (into zero space) to find fights. I’m still clueless, I die all the time and I make mistakes all the time. But I’m also learning and it’s certainly not boring (it can be when traversing zero space and you’re not finding much but that is part of being in a sandbox MMO, it’s not instanced fighting the second you want it to be).
I do this because I WANT to: I don’t need instant travel (I don’t even WANT instant travel as that is bad game design), I don’t need encouragement, I don’t need to be catered to. In fact the time and preparation it takes is all part of the whole process and I’d not want it any other way, if I DID want that I’d be playing COD instead.
Players who don’t PVP now won’t do it either once changes like this happen because they’ll just come up with another excuse as to why they’re sitting on their ass grinding moneys.
This change won’t help the ones you state it would apply to and it probably would cause all kinds of unwanted side effects (which I don’t pretend to understand).
