I think this should have been handled eons ago… but if they have jump bridges in 0.0 space, why the hell wouldn’t there be jump bridges in high sec? I get that it adds a sort of division to the huge amount of people playing, generates economy etc, but as this game ages and populations decrease I think this will become even more important. Not to mention that people already congregate around the same handful of hot-spots anyhow.
I think it’s an awful waste of peoples time having to either auto pilot or manually pilot your ship anything more than 5 jumps. At the very least make it so you can clone jump a lot more.
I know a bunch of high sec gankers and people who love to take advantage of auto piloters will hate it, but seriously, such a waste of soooooooooooooo many peoples time. If you added up all the time wasted traveling in this game you’d probably tally a few hundred years of wasted human life doing something unenjoyable.
Maybe just create some gates that sort of chop up the world in to smaller paths. I dunno, I just think no one should have to click their way through 20 jumps for anything. It’s a waste of personal enjoyment time for gaming and a waste of paid subscription time.
