Off topic: anyone noticed Cylla’s new alt on the forums? They are starting to break character. See if you can spot them.
On topic: So apparently there are plenty of AGers according to Brisc. How many AGers compared to Gers do you think he considers plenty? Or has he just made an off the cuff comment without considering it?
Yes, it was highly informative because it finally gave room to the other side’s position, how hisec gankers see the game and the impact, and explaining what and why, and putting things into perspective.
If anything it was also an antidote to the toxicity in the many threads about ganking, toxicity from people unwilling to accept the heart of the game and unwilling to make token efforts to avoid getting killed in space, unwilling to acknowledge this is a multiplayer full-on pvp game anywhere on the map.
A simple scout alt does miracles against ganking, so do minor fit adjustments.
The rules of engagement are not in favor of anti-ganking. There’s a few things that could be done, like making the killright public automatically if the owner doesn’t “accept” it (they could even turn it into a better isk sink).
Alliances who succeed to establish themselves tend to evolve into lowsec/nullsec/w-space groups, for good reason: hisec is dull once you get the basics. The issue is also that many new players are reluctant to join, and for a variety of reasons, good and bad.
But, why would hisec need protection from null blocks ?? As far as I know, null blocks do not interfere with hisec at all, not via combat.
The TTT is a financial consortium between a few of the major null block coalitions. I don’t see the relation with ganking ? True, if they see someone else encroaching on “their” neck of the woods, they will first check, then strike. But that is the powergame, the politics of New Eden.
And of course the game should always allow for an extension of any conflict elsewhere into hisec e.g., to attack important shipments of valuable goods, or to disrupt finances - if possible. But even that incidence doesn’t seem to be “off the charts” ?
