Would having new wormholes not revive any mass for the first 10/15 minutes of life be broken? Giving them a minimum life time.
WH evictions atm are broken and for the groups in the wrong end can really ruin the game and break groups apart. It is part of living in WH space I know but watching your stuff burn and not been able to do anything about it or play your game for a week wrecks corps and I have seen people stop playing as a result.
I guess my reason for suggesting this is been on the wrong end recently, but to be fair I have been in both sides and still think this will give defenders a bit more hope of actually getting help. The attackers will need to work harder for their loot.
The negatives are obviously rage rolling would be less effective, but groups could open the static of the static, effectively the same as rolling and opening a new static, bit more scanning involved but easy enough to adjust to for groups looking for content, just a bit more effort involved.
How many WHs could a dedicated group open in 10/15min? A few I recon.
NS statics getting rage rolled bit tougher as there won’t be another static but I think it a fair trade to having a guaranteed K space entrance (others might not agree).
Closing a hole for ratting probably not affected that much as the holes will prob already be passed the initial 10/15 min of massless jumping.
Biggest prob maybe is the amount of caps that could enter a system in the 1st 10/15 min could be unlimited but they won’t all get back if they go to pew pew and would have to keep finding new holes to leave but seeding could be a problem… maybe, 10/15 min is not long to organise a fleet of caps and rage rolling for a specific hole already made harder.
Could make some interesting situations for the bigger groups fielding caps against each other.
Holding hole control 24/7 would be a lot more difficult and involve a lot more work and coordination, not impossible but hard.
Anchoring structures harder too.
It would enable smaller groups get help when needed the most, and most WH groups are not that big really, whilst providing more of a challenge for larger groups to evict people, and possibly create more WH pew pew.
Yes WHs are supposed to be tough, dangerous and generally punishing to live in or not lived in at all but we do and we enjoy it.
I don’t think this would make them safe at all, but give people a chance to fight back when there might have been none before, also force people to look further than their static hole for content.
