Mining together or flying missions or simply hanging out in a FW site sometimes produces very strange blossoms. A trip with friends to the Faction Warfare area and funny ideas come up to productively counteract the threatening negative record of the PCU numbers. Make EVE great again!
As soon as someone makes the first joke about Exotic Dancers, the ice breaks. It gets even funnier when EVE veterans and newbies meet and one develops the ideas of the other…let’s say…further.
Such rounds can become a pretty funny think tank for ideas that hopefully CCP will never implement because they would set the whole of New Eden on fire.
I. Deactivate the “Set destination” function
What would happen if CCP simply deactivated the “set destination” option? The galaxy would be much easier to explore if we flew roughly in the direction we thought Jita or Amarr would be. Like the ancient seafarers, we would have to orient ourselves by landmarks, stars or nebulae. At least for role-players, this would be a real highlight.
But not only New Eden would burn, but also the servers of dotlan.net.
II. Charge for jumping through a stargate
The empires are short of cash? No problem. They should just charge a user fee for their stargates. I already see hundreds of people mining in the Belts to be able to pay the 1 million ISK jump fee when they travel from Dodixie to Jita. How about entry fees for Minmatar? Trade bans for Gallente characters? Ok, here we get into an area that is already promoting some really cool ideas.
III. The local chat should be run by a module that needs fuel.
BlackOut has shown the way. “It’s not a bug, it’s a feature!” That’s about how CCP sold us on the partially complete chat outage in Winter 2018, and many thought it was pretty cool.
Except for those who scan the local with third-party programs and get warned that way. Some even think it’s so allowed and totally legal that they show the whole thing live in the stream. Oops…was that a spoiler for an upcoming blog post?
