1 - Input is VERY welcome; I know my opinion is not the only or best opinion concerning the health of this game. I also know how important this game to many of the players.
2 - Yes, this is a new account and email.
3 - Your hate fuels me.
^^^ This reddit post got a lot of attention, and for good reason. In my mind it gets summarized in a couple of different ways.
First, people are going to complain no matter what happens, what changes, what doesn’t change. People are gonna ■■■■■ and complain.
Second, I think there are too many big ships in this game. Let your hate flow, I do not care.
Mining - It seems like there is too much minerals being mined at a given time. Here’s my fixes for this:
Bring back Scarcity.
The Mining Command Ships - The Porpoise, Orca and Rorqual should ONLY provide support. Have all three get bonuses to command bursts based on their size.
Get rid of mining drones.
Reduce mining yields across the board.
The resource harvest needs to slow down.
Capital Proliferation - There are just too many caps out there. These things used to be a goal to strive for within a group, now they are freaking everywhere. Get rid of them. Here’s how:
- Dreads and carriers become marauders. CCP can wave a wand and make it so.
2)Titans and Super-Carriers become Dreads and Carriers. This would be a drastic arms reduction.
- Make all capitals MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE!
Nerf the living Jesus out of all capitals, and then make them MUCH more expensive
Give us T2 versions that would essentially be what the T1s were, and make them REALLY EFFING EXPENSIVE.
Other Stuff -
Eve is entirely too big for the player base. You could probably get rid of half the systems and folks would still be stretched thin.
Get rid of the Dynamic Bounty System. The reserve bank can stay as a way to encourage pvp, but don’t take money from the ratters to do it.
Instanced play - Some people hate this, some don’t. I don’t actually care. Getting ganked isn’t the only way to lose ships in this game.
PLEX - Jesus do I hate PLEX. CCP, just sell ISK and SKINs for cash. Done. Make all the good SKINs be cash only, and the mediocre one be drops in special events.
Skill Point Farming) Get rid of injectors or make them account/email bound.
Brothers, sisters, capsuleers. Feedback is welcome. The only way CCP will address anything is by hearing our voices.
Again, let your hate flow. To me it’s all salt, and salt mining is best mining.
