Is @Lucas_Kell vindicated? Is it the end as we know it? Cats and dogs living together? Mass hysteria?
It is like a cat trying to operate the nuclear power plant at this point. CCP is just changing stuff they don’t understand, hoping it will save them.
I’m sure they will still be able to dock in their own citadels…
Ah…my business selling clone solider tags will do a roaring trade now.
See, the secret to winning Eve is to have a foot in every camp.
The way some of those read if your security status is low enough you can’t even dock in a ship, only a capsule
Nobody should need to dock in a ship, only undock.
I find it funny that ccp now punishes you for playing the game. Great game design cpp! 10/10
The game? They only care about whether you are paying for your subscription and buying skins.
It’s certainly a good start.
no its not in no way this is change good, it will only kill the game more
why ? because now you don’t have to worry about “the big bad ganker man”?
It wont affect my own ganking at all…as I’d already planned to stay above -2.5 status. I mainly fly 11m ISK T2 Catalysts, and have already factored in that the cost of clone soldier tags and Concord fee effectively raise each gank to 19m ISK. Plus I have billions of ISK sitting around doing nothing anyway…so any such change to ganking really only affects poorer players.
People asked how does Lucas feel…but heck, this is a move that favours ‘P2W’ people, his other pet hate.
Lucas says gankers are evil griefers and that their removal from the game would be beneficial.
The Meta Show S3 Ep32 - A Fair and Balanced Discussion of Ganking - YouTube watch this and you will then understand why its not a good idea
Gankers will still exist, which is why this is only a good start, rather than a full solution.
Watching some gankers crying about how they think their playstyle is core to the existence of the game doesn’t tell me anything beyond the fact that they are delusional. If ganking were completely removed tomorrow, a handful of people would whine then the game would continue on, not least of which because the vast majority of people are unaffected by ganking one way or the other.
You cleary did not watch the video then. In it Brisc stats this: that when they nerf ganking they kill 20 subs (paying accounts that the ganker owns) to save the freighter account owner that has maby 2 omega accounts. So if ccp cared about money they would be making a massive error. as you are making someone who is paying for 20+ account leave in favor of someone paying for 2 accounts. See where i am going?
Additionally, alpha clones will not be able to disable their safeties in high sec.
that is also a bad idea, now new players who are not alpha now can’t try there hand at something that may get them into the game and get them paying for an account
But it won’t be part of the game, so there is no need for them to try it.
