Dear Futurists of New Eden,
First, you’re going to need to get a bunch of players on board in order to have any hope of making an impact that is noticeably larger than a routine market swing.
Second, guys have fuel and plex bills. So, if you want to propose a strike that will greatly impact many players’ capacity to earn, you might want to give them more of a heads up than negative 2 days.
Third, if, by some miracle, you do happen to gather enough people to the cause to start impacting the market in Jita, you know scabs will start trying to take advantage of the situation. Thus, in order to actually bring Jita to its knees, you’ll need to be prepared to use force. So, before even attempting this, you’ll need to learn how highsec PvP works. The problem with this, however, is that if you learn how highsec PvP works, you’d learn how to manage the risk of highsec PvP in the process, which means you would no longer have any reason for striking in the first place. After all, what’s the point of striking for a safer new eden, if you already made it safer by learning how to play the game?
Speaking of which, if you would like an advisor to teach you how to stop sucking, I am available for the bargain price of 10 billion isk. This is less than 33% of the total isk your members lost in the past 11 months of your existence. In exchage, I will teach you:
- how to manage the risk of ganking
- how to manage the risk of gatecamps
- how to manage the risk of highsec wardeckers
- how to manage the risk of suspect baiters and ninja looters
- how to properly fit and defend structures
- loot denial
- and more
Or, if you don’t want to pay, maybe you can spend your time trying to learn these things on your own. I mean, that’s certainly a much better use of your time than a hastily thrown together strike that would probably hurt your members more than it would hurt Jita.
And, not for nothing, but a dangerous New Eden benefits the good industrialists and traders because:
- they know how to properly manage risk, or in the case of station traders, don’t have to worry about it all,
- it hurts their competitors, reducing supply
- and it results in a bunch of stuff getting blown up, which increases demand
Thus, to them, your proposal basically amounts to, “I don’t know how to Eve, so I’m calling on you to make a significant short term sacrifice that, if successful, will hurt your long term profitability and make the game more boring.”
A condescending blowhard
