While the changes to the WarDec system in general are good, the fee changes were poorly thought out and it is REALLY showing.
“50 percent of all wars in EVE Online are started by just 5 groups”
There has been apx 250 wars declared this month and just one corp is responsible for about 70% of them. Another corp takes 26%. I’m guessing this was not what you intended. You’ve doubled the price for “the little guys” and made it cheaper for huge sharks. WTF!
My simple suggestion is this: Put WarDec fees on a sliding scale.
First open WarDec costs 25M…Second 50M…third 100M….fourth 200M…fifth 400M…etc. This is a doubling but it could be +25% for a gentler ramping or something fancier.
At some point the number of open WarDecs becomes too costly.
If the goal is to reduce the ultra aggressive WarDec farmers, then you need to make WarDec’ing itself cost prohibitive.
You wanted to temper 5 monsters but you’ve actually made it worse…Encourage little fights by reducing WarDec fees BUT increase the cost for having multiple WarDecs open at the same time.
I’m going to get my asbestos underwear on for what’s about to hit…
