OP  10/03/11 3:52:59 PM#1

In today's One Jump Home column, MMORPG.com's Ross McDermott writes about the impending control of null-sec by two titans of EVE: Goonswarm Federation and Legion of xXDEATHXx. But there's more to the story than a simple non-invasion pact in the thought that null-sec is stagnant and that it's the events happening there that shape the rest of the EVE universe. Ross has several ideas to share with readers so head through the jump. Add your thoughts in the comments.

The reality is that stagnation is rampant in EVE Online. Specifically in null-sec. The super-capital arms race has resulted in the most terrifying of outcomes: the super-capital Mexican stand-off. However this appears to have evolved beyond the simple rules of 3 men pointing guns at each-other, rather today we see a shift towards a nuclear peace.

"A very special kind of stupidity"

10/04/11 9:48:46 AM#3

The Mittani's "DCF" document is a ploy to buy time for goons until the Winter expansion. Once supercapitals are heavily nerfed, the DRF will have lost their "win-button", and from my personal experience of fighting with them all through this year, their subcapital fighting skills are unexceptional at best - most of their good PvPers have left to join various NPC-space alliances.. Once they've lost their supercap advantage, they won't have the numbers or the skills to defend such a huge swathe of space.

The DRF hegemony will be immediately attacked by numerous smaller alliances, and Goonswarm will take the opportunity to defeat the DRF one at a time, perhaps excepting their long-time brosefs in XiX. RA look particularly vulnerable.

This is the reason I don't like EVE Online (Before I get jumped on - I don't want it changed. Lots of people seem to like it, and I don't want to bash their game).


I enjoy pretty much every concept other than the ability to form those superalliances, and NIPs, etc.  I'd be all aboard if you could only have one account, alliances were limited to 15-20 people, and no two alliances were allowed to cooperate. Forced wars between all alliances (Not all the time, but fairly frequently) and a ship and sector limit would be great (Maybe 3 ships per person, with 1-2 capital ships per alliance. Only get 2 bases, in up to two sectors/systems. No domination of regions, races or null-sec.


I realize that this is more human nature than a game flaw - which is why the devs would perma-ban people (Hardware ban maybe?) and alliances breaking the rules. You'd probably have to hire teams to comb the internet and guild forums to be truly effective. Just because we act that way in RL doesn't mean we should have the same freedoms in the game.

I think alliances are ok, they build up and ego's knock them down every time.

I would like to see 1 account per player though, but CCP need the cash too much to let that happen.

No man controls my destiny... especially not one who attacks downwind and stinks of garlic.

One account per person would be horrible, it would also be pretty hard to police.  The way Eve works, is that you can only train one character per account.  If you they allow you to train more characters per account, having only one would be fine.  It just takes too long for someone to be able to train everything, it's not possible really for your average player.


 


Actually, the game is kind of boring right now.  Was not bad a month of so ago, but recently it's just gotten pretty bad in my opinion.  It's just stale.  There have not been any decent changes to the game besides incursions and planetary interaction in a while and the poor sov mechanics from Dominion are just wearing on most people.  Everyone seems to be kind of farting around, waiting for something to good to happen with the winter patch (but will probably all let down).

As long as Eve is about who brings more capitals, their great pvp game will suffer.  Big ships need small ships protection, they are too vulnerable otherwise.

I agree..fun to read about. I would even watch battles if I could (thought that would end up as live video in the captains quarters..silly me) if I could. But playing it takes too much of a time sink and investment of yourself for me to get involved. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the way Eve works but it's just not for me being a mostly solo type player these days. But, the few months I did spend in Eve several years ago made some good memories but we mostly just mined. Any game devoted to pvp is always going to be limited by the very nature of the types of players it attracts. If I could jump into a ship made available by a corp. at war I would gladly do it if nothing more was expected of me than 30minutes of fighting but I can't see that ever happening.

once upon a time in eve online!! there was no super capital ships, there wasnt even capital ships and the battle ship was the nighty sword in which everyone sort!  soon every one had battle ships and eve stagnated to the point where something had to be done, then came the capital ships carriers and ddread naughts along with super haulers, again these too become common place to the point where they where no longer threatening and something else had to be done, so they brought us super caps lol hope your beginning to see the link between these chain of events.  and once again there are so many of these end game ships in the game its pointless.


 


eve is stagnent because of these ships. allowing one or two major alliances to band together to wipe every one else out and own the entirity of null sec is an utterly stupid idea to say the least, these two alliances will controll the very fabric of these monolithic ships meaning no one and i mean no one will be able to ever challange them. eve will be truely lost.  its already bad that if you want 0.0 space you have to have super caps to take control of some! if goons and death do this and succeed then eve wont be worth playing lol 


 


too many one man bands in the game to put up a reasonable resistance against such over whelming odds, generally in eve there is so much disposition among the players they are unwilling to put there petty needs and wants aside to form super corps strong enough and dedicated enough to become that which goon swarm and death have become.


 


why!


 


well death and goons are not just simple eve alliances, no no! they are world wide gaming communities thats where their numbers come from. you cannot achieve that kind of size by simple minded antics of guild leading in a game such as eve, you have to think bigger be braver be bolder and be willing to group with those you wouldnt usually group with for a much greater cause than your own reason for paying a sub.


eve is stagnant because of an ongoing selfish need from thousands of little corps all thinking they know better and wanting to play there way!!! well soon my friends you will be playing how your told to play lol well in null sec atleast.


 


happy space fareing. if your all smart you will stop worrying about your 20 man corp neighbours who keep camping your gate for haulers and starting thinking a little bigger and concidering a merger with a much more competetive already established alliance..


 


eve is past the stage of new kids on the block, not enough room for new comers sorry guys but its the truth.

It is funy to read some of comments up there. First you want some sandbox game and  now some of you want to limit this freedom. Is there in real life any limitation on military forces and  alliances?? I don't think so.  Is it in real life like that? Yes it is, you have on one side big alliance like NATO and on other side Russia, China  and rest of independent countries.

as fun as this was to read, it has thoroughly confirmed my suspicions that EVE is infintely too well established for new players to join. i hardly understood a word of the setting specific language you used, but i did absorb the vastness of the established powers you describe. 

 

unless one or more of these galactic juggernauts has a newb training division, i dont see how anyone could, or would want to, try to join this game at this stage. i feel like id be more likely to trade a paper clip up to a giant mansion than to ever be able to rise to a level of even minute influence in this game at this point.

This is a game we are talking about, not real life.   Wide open sandbox games don't exist because human nature always wants to be on the winning side.  Even the most basic sandbox games still have rules to limit such.

CCP's problem is that it is not easy for young corps or alliances to do anything in low sec or 0.0 space.  They do not want to anger the veterans either.  So any solution will be greeted with dislike by some faction.

It is difficult to balance a game, and I think the players will be accepting if CCP nerfs the capital ships.

I would probably play EVE if I had more time to or if I felt like I could have an impact without putting in a ton of time, but I feel neither.  Although its a sandbox in many ways, I still feel like my creativity is a little stiffled in EVE.  Maybe a combination of the cold steel of ships and the long boring grind trying to earn the cash to have some fun in the game.  But I really enjoy reading about it and hope it turns out for the best.

And I hope the players find ways to show appreciation for this game publicly as they also fight for the devs to listen to their wishes for future updates.

Back in the days... in December 2005 there was an expansion called Red Moon Rising. This was the day when things started to go wrong. The introduction of Titans, Carriers and Motherships that came along with this expansion soon showed it's ugly face...

Before that time we had some rather balanced battlefields. The "great northern war" was fought with battleships and tactics and fleetcoordination was key to success. These were the great days of EvE imho.

By the end of 2006 capitals were dominating the battlefield allready and I basically lost interest in 0.0 warfare. However, not all was lost, as you could still find a place in the universe as a rather small but dedicated group.

In 2007 there was this project called "Tortuga", when some powerhouses went and tried to fight BoB in Delve. This was the time when it had to became obvious to all, that we were playing "Capitals Online" from now on.

The final nail in the coffin was the introduction of jump-freighters and jump-bridges, which made logistics and maintenance of large chunks of space too easy. A handful of players without military backup could now move ressources and items in near safety and keep the systems running and the military could now move whole fleets from one end of their territory to the other within half an hour. EvE got too small and no room was left for small entities anymore.

So we're looking at the problems for 4-5 years now. It's nothing that happened sometime in the recent history of EvE and still people keep playing the game for whatever reasons.

I aswell keep logging in now and then to have some fun with old friends, but I've long ago stopped being interested in territorial warfare. I'm part of one of these smaller entities in 0.0. We still have some space and there's still good fights to have now and then, but in the end it's pointless to try to defend the space against the big players.

The whole capital-ship and sovereignity-system needs to be changed drastically to make the 0.0-warfare fun again, but I don't see this happening, because the changes would have to be so drastical, that even the CFC would rather keep the current status.
