Well not much to say. I returned from looooooong sleep to the game and found it – well to some extend same. Same people playing the same game. Caldari militia has different names and same reasons for loosing battles to Galente. There are some hopes present though.
I guess I logged in the wrong time, would be better to log on when somebody will tide up floor again. Well I guess I have to help with the janitor work again. 🙂
BOOM! Sound kill barrier breached! 1000+ kill per month. Historical record of IBS was 1540 per month in the times we had 100+ members. Good times ahead and thanx to all our faction pinatas to finance our ships!
IBS formed alliance with 3 friendly corps (Mutant Ninja Zombies, Battle Muppets, Celestial Appocalypse, Inglorious-basterds). Killboard is http://bloodyronin.eve-kill.net/.
Increasing speed of killing!
So when I told Hans he should resign from CSM because of fail to save lowsec from nullbear wasteland, he told me I should write my ideas abou the lowsec reform. Here comes the first one – differentiated market taxation for advanced technology.
RP part: Empires dont want high tech armies to march through their high sec lawns. Too many people dies in corporate wars and mercenary armies are hard to control. So they come with extra taxation (20-100%) on every t2 or advanced technology sold in high sec (ships, modules, ammo). Even banned some T2/faction ship classes from lowsec and lp stores in high sec offer only limited things. In every restriction is oportunity – smugglers, priates immediately created new markets in lowsec. Some of the modules are even taxated in 0.4 systems.
Logical part: This will force people to come to lowsec for better prices and restricted modules to lowsec. This will create new “shadow market hubs”. More people will move to lowsec, because lowsec trade will be very profitable.
Results: More people in lowsec. More people protecting their asets in low sec. More pvp in lowsec.
So CCP finaly made it and published some mash up of words (really bad one even for us non English natives from east wildlands) to confirm people leaving fw shortly after the changes were implemented and fight intensity is going down. Of course it is covered in some RP “cloaks and daggers” which are hard to understand – http://community.eveonline.com/news/newsFromEve.asp?of=true&newsTitle=amidst-the-ongoing-vigor-of-the-great-factional-war-there-is-a-strange-undercurrent-of-dissention-and-disappearances .
Gents, with releases like Inferno- full of technical and design flaws it is time to say – we are sorry dear customers, we gonna fix it soon (because u paying us some RL isk, right?) . It is not time to bullshit us by RP cover stories (that is good for some WOW kids -I know u want their bucks too). It is also more unfortunate, because u were warned about results of the changes before the patch release, by people who were testing the game (this time I mean not only FW, but also that major fuckup called “new Inventory”).
Can the guys who were reponsible for Crucible (or the mindset) get back to the wheel and clean the mess. Crucible was very nice release because it adressed so many anoying things in the game. You also did right thing with fixing the icons etc. – that was the mindset we want. I understand u need a job, so you created another pile of anoying things to fix, but you might start listening to your customers and not just to yourself. From my past nearly 10 year experience as a game developer, I knew the worst thing happening was the moment I started creating the game for myself. Because u will not be paying for your game – happy customers will.
Hope for good people to come back and badies to be eaten by the Blood raiders.
PS: to my hate f(u)an club … there are nice things in the patch too … however they are totaly screwed by things like the new FW changes, inventory changes or eve the new wdec system has some fatal flaws and ofc that pile of bugs which happened.
Hans I thought u should resign because on protest to CCP changes, however after few last posts I think you should resign because of for lying people and advocating changes which leads to blobery in low sec.

So Gals again hoped for easy kills … right? Because they were in big ships … right? With recons … right? And inside their own plex .. right?
Well IBS way Pillage of the Heydellis Village 🙂
Thnx for the fight 🙂 … Battle result is -10% on both sides to be more accurate, but still we really enjoy it.
Thnx Percy and Alerza and other guys on field.
