As one of the many purveyors of crime and anti-social behaviors who frequented this game in the days before “Retribution” and the subsequent safening of of high-sec, I’m writing from a state of retirement (playing other games).
As far as I know, the majority of your player base still has no desire to live in null. I think the statistic was 70% living in high sec before I left. I’m betting that hasn’t changed.
I still have no desire to go back to nullsec for so many reasons. I tried a few months ago and still find it intolerable and too damn orderly.
I’m waiting for you to realize that crime was a really important and valuable portion of the content you provided to the 70% of your player base who doesn’t leave high-sec. I believe those people are now bored.
Let me know when you want to bring back mechanics that allow people like me to bring compelling and interesting villainy back to the game.
I still haven’t replaced how good this game used to be.
