Since they are changing Citadel timers/modules how about making a change that is worthwhile too, like the mechanic that is current ASSET SAFETY. Along with adjusted drop rates below, we can make some changes that will protect those that are truly AFK.
Suggested Drop Rate Changes
- Wormholes - Drops 100% (0% goes to asset safety)
- Nullsec - Drops 75% of assets (25% goes to asset safety)
- Lowsec - Drops 50% of assets (50% goes to asset safety)
- Highsec - Drops 25% of assets (75% goes to asset safety)
Suggested Simple Changes
- If the player ACCOUNT does not log on for more then x-days (14 perhaps) they get 100% of assets moved to asset safety automatically.
- Keep normal random mechanic on dropped items of 50/50 destroyed/dropped.
- Remove the asset recovery fee associated with getting items back since items will actually be dropped/destroyed now.
- Implement “asset safety insurance” you can upgrade your protection to 90% for a one-time fee of 5% asset value, or 100% for a one-time fee of 10% asset value, and insurance is static to each citadel you buy it in forever (or until destroyed/removed).
This simple change along with the current suggested changed for citadel’s should make for a much more interesting gameplay!
