Yep, Dominion will:
1) change 0.0 into something absurd
2) achieve absolutely nothing apart from faster sovereigntly claiming
Man, I just love your indomitable optimism. What, what's the "something absurd" that 0.0 will be changed into?
It is not that I do not want to see Dominion being a success or just looking for something to bitch about, it is simply bad as were speed changes or T3 production - all for objective and valid reasons.
What I find potentionaly absurd about new 0.0 space?
EVE evolved a lot to reach the state of the game it is now. With various more or less 'intrusive mechanics' it created a place to accomodate all kind of people and still maintain the connection among them - across vast distance of jumps, security status and security space, professions and playstyles. Every piece of space and every each individual was unique while still being a part of the bigger world. This made EVE very rich world with lots of diversity and options. But Dominion is going to change this.
Dominion is an attempt to merge high sec space and 0.0, completely destroying the unique nature of this part of space. And once again to remove a few options from the game.
0.0 until now was PVP space, passive income of valueable moons was encouraging the gameplay without a grind like real-time skill training is supporting focus on playing the game instead of progressing your character.
Now you will have to make ISK for your (super)caps through ratting and mining. That is what idea of new 0.0 is... They call it 'maintaining' your space.
The whole idea of this change doesn't take player motivations and views into account.
Null sec is mostly populated by PVPers. This is not because there is a lack of room for other people. It is simply because of the nature of this space:
A ship blown up is 'profit' for PVPer while very undesireable for others. They make 'profit' of stability and minimizing loses.
CCP thinks it will be interesting to force them to work together - while it might be interesting from dev point of view, it is completely absurd and retarded from fun perspective.
Only way to make this to work is to have less PVP in your space.
Not absurd enough?
