We have been In more of a stagment time where we have only had about 21 thousand players daily which is not bad compared to starscape (which If you would play it please do so it needs the players) I think crosovers could work possibly giving them a taste of eve well not giving them eve. might give us a lot of players
Finally getting rid of all high-sec PvP would be a good start! The population would probably double within a year.
And I definitely agree with the crossover idea. Maybe they can partner up with FIFA or something. Imagine that the Gallente “discover” information about a “very old Jovian sport” from relic sites, and then we can have lots of popular real-life players and clubs provide licenses to EVE to act as EVE representations of themselves in the new soccer/football craze sweeping the empires. We as players could turn in ore/ISK/LP to sponsor the various teams, and then after the games happen in real life and the winners are decided, EVE players could earn lots of prestige if the teams they sponsored win. It would be an excellent way for players to compete with each other during breaks from mining and running missions.
isd would have to watch that like a hawk for no NSFW NFTS
Boarding parties you can join in 3d to take over Battleships and up, with 10% hull left during engagement. 3v3 players shooting it out in the ship.
Unfortunately EVE doesn’t have an adequate engine to render 3D characters like CoD.
find ways to break up the null blocks.
maybe jove factions take over the null blocks and make them high sec and low sec?
It should be harder for null blocks to maintain regions. I thought Fozzie Sov was supposed to fix all of that. Most of the stagnation in this game comes from big empires that don’t actually want to fight.
maybe npc and players could just take it over when not even in war
Less whining about everything…

The topic is a bit too broad for the simple, one-shot answers that forumites tend to prefer.
A new golden age in EVE would basically require new reasons to play and engage in activity, and interesting types of activity, across the spectrum of Hi/Low/FW/Null/WH space. Although it would likely be sufficient to concentrate on High and Null space first since that would affect most of the player base.
Since CCP isn’t really capable of quality game design at this point, the only way it could happen would be to tweak up some existing game mechanics into a form that made it more interesting for many players to participate.
Possible areas to approach:
- Player content creation similar to what’s been done by EVE Pandora
- Expanding the contract system to various types of mercenary, defense, hunt/kill, provide resources contracts
- Create in-game leaderboards per region for various types of activity and link some rewards/recognition to performance
- Give PvP a scoring system with unlocks for various ranking so there’s more reason to participate in hunting various targets/ship types
- Make “participation in the growth of your racial empire” more meaningful than a character background choice you click once during creation and ignored thereafter.
Most of these options could/should be tied back into a “player content creation” system that allows players, corps, alliances to set up various contracts, missions, or goal-targets with set rewards for completing/participating.
The most glaring lack in EVE in the past decade, IMO, is that CCP has failed to create strong gameplay mechanics supporting more PvP and conflict in the game. Instead they’ve simply nerfed most of the interesting or rewarding content, apparently based on the foolish notion that players will simply play longer if rewards are harder to earn.
A once-a-month free-for-all Friday, where Concord takes the day off
Excellent idea, though every miner, mission runner, and industrialist simply wouldn’t log in on Fridays. Make it random and unannounced. You’re in the middle of a gaming session one day and at some point every system in the game becomes nullsec…
Leaderboards in any game are pure stage 4 cancer and usually only lead to camping, botting, and exploiting to remain at the top…
More yarr, less aww.
More Pew Pew, less QQ…
