Okay first off I just read up a little bit about player owned stargates. So I don’t pretend to know all details about them. But it seems like a worrisome development.
This is because those stargates make life for bigger alliances much easier and safer. Forces being spread out are no longer an issue and the larger alliances should be able to eliminate the small alliances or corporations faster and easier.
Yes in the short term this will lead to more PvP. Or should I say slaughters. But in the long term alliances will become so powerful that there is less PvP to be had ( which is partly already the case ). Most players would be forced to align themselves to the major powers and the situation would move even more towards a situation with a few powerful alliances.
What I would like to see is that CCP moved the game in the other direction. Make it harder for large alliances to stay in power and easier for corporations to claim a few systems. Just imagine an EVE where there are many small corporations competing with each other.
- CCP should make life easier for powerful alliances.
- CCP should make life easier for low/medium powerful corporations or alliances.
