Again, not providing an explanation to why i’m clueless?
I agree with you on point A, but your point B doesn’t consider how the hired NPC’s will work. With a defensive fleet, it won’t really matter how many NPC’s an individual sends, the attacking NPC’s can easily be destroyed by a defensive fleet unsupported.
Why will it be useless for large groups? Yes, they can bash structures but large groups like Horde and Goons have hundreds of raitarus and astrahus that are empty and unfitted around gates. If Horde hires thousands of NPCs to kill off some Goon citadels, Goons can either pay NPCs to defend, or more likely they won’t bother doing anything and just plop down more citadels when they lose some.
This appeared quite a bit on Reddit too. To reiterate, is it really player interaction if people spend 20-30 mins 2-3 times across a few days listening to FC tell a story and watching guns cycle?
I don’t need to justify anything with the term isk sink, it’s the whole reason the thread was even created.
Also small groups will easily be able to hire NPCs to kill undefended structures, as long as they have the funding. Large groups will also only be able to use NPC’s to feasibly kill undefended structures without support. I know from experience a citadel gunner chucking bombs at a fleet with logi will annihilate the entire fleet, and before void bombs were nerfed even fleets with logi occasionally lost a couple of attackers
If you like bashing, then I guess i can’t really argue against you. Maybe there’s people out there that like that kind of stuff.
Again, Looking at the recent Crimson Scythe fireworks, they peaked at around 12k units/day (@15m each) for a day, and dropped to around 3k units/day (@almost 40k each) on average recently. At it’s peak, It took 180b from the players, and now it’s taking about 120m/day. If we’re comparing that to isk fountains, taken from https://www.eveonline.com/article/p6rqtc/monthly-economic-report-march-2018, in a mere month the net isk production was +35 trillion. We desperately need an isk sink that can combat this problem, and fireworks just arn’t cutting it.
tl;dr fireworks don’t get traded in high enough volumes to create a feasible isk sink
Ok, Collaterized loan 5% rate 15b <- on this thread you called out someone for scamming when enorn stated that the assets were worth 15b as collateral.
On my other thread Abyssal webs too strong, you ignorantly stated that 70% velocity webs existed even though they don’t.
I don’t like personally attacking people, but looking through your recent replies you’ve been ignorantly calling people out without evidence to support your claims.
True, eve is a sandbox. But if CCP ever implements this idea it just opens up another possible isk sink, does it not? And as long as the people who bash citadels arn’t affected because the NPC prices are higher, then it doesn’t really change much, apart from cleaning up citadels and getting rid of isk
That’s actually a good idea, and it also gives ore which further helps combat inflation. Maybe make it so that you don’t get any ore from them, but rather to disrupt other coalitions’ mining operations or just to piss off highsec miners. And pay out up front a set amount of isk for every (x)m^3 that is to be harvested. They can be killed, but players can pay even more isk to hire a support fleet to help defend the NPC miners. If you don’t start a thread about it I will
