    Nullsec Local Blackout Incoming During July!

    https://www.eveonline.com/article/pu...ng-during-july

    As reported in The Scope earlier today, over the coming days we’ll be changing the way local chat works.

    This change will affect the whole of nullsec space.

    Local chat in all nullsec space will be switched over to delayed mode. This means that it will behave as local chat in wormhole space, with pilots only appearing in the local population listing should they choose to post messages.

    Obviously, this will cause a substantial change to the dynamics of nullsec, so we want to inform the community before we begin.

    The duration of this blackout is undetermined, and we’ll be monitoring what effect this has on the cluster.

    We will give at least 48 hours of notice before initiating the blackout so pilots can make the necessary preparations.

    I strongly advise you to watch the meta show tomorrow, or at least the first 10-15 minutes. I expect it to be richly entertaining.

    Hahahahaha!

    Only about 5 years too late. Man this game would have been good with some core mechanics tweaks/changes a few years ago.

    v0v the past is the past, and tbh I've had a lot of good times in those 5 years. Frankly I have no idea if this will end well or terribly, but I am extremely entertained by this new "no fucks given" CCP.

    As it is, the sov game has been thoroughly won by the Imperium, no two ways about it. CCP can't outright say so, but come on, it's a fact. So a 'soft reset' with new and more difficult victory conditions is a necessary thing. At minimum it'll shake things up for a while and offer up some crisis opportunities to other groups prepared to be alert and opportunistic.

    And make no mistake: this is all incredibly ballsy. They're basically using the live cluster for game-wide A/B testing. It can be very rewarding by helping them discover things that would never come up (or could never be proven) in theory crafting or small-scale testing. But it's also very risky by changing the rules on the players, who may not want to stick around to be test subjects.

    I have no idea where this is going to go, but it will be interesting to see what the full scale of CCP's plans are, and what ultimately results from them. Save EVE, kill EVE, and everything between is on the table.

    On it's previous course, EVE was going to be dead within a year or two anyway. These changes might hasten that a few months, or they might extend it a lot.

    I don't know if I'd be so pessimistic to say a year or two, but clearly the political situation has grown stale and botting was getting worse (or at least more blatant). CCP probably could fix things more gradually. but that also means the rewards from doing so would be more gradual as well.

    The big challenge for CCP, I reckon, is making sure they don't blow up the economy in the process. They've been adrift here since losing Dr. Eyjó.

    "blowing it up" in the sense of a catastrophic crash would be OK. The ongoing torrent of mudflation not so much.

    The beating heart of EVE is its economy. Wreck it, and the game will come crashing down around it.
