i know this debate has been going on for ages, long before i eve subscribed to eve, (dec 1, 2008) but the thing is that wormhole and wormhole space has been added while i was playing. so i think i am misunderstanding what the debate is about or how to remove local.
honestly if they made normal space have the same type of local as wormhole space i would not mind at all, high sec low sec nul sec all the same. Would make radio chatter more realistic (eve speaking)
for those who are unfamiliar wormhole space there is no local channel, basically the list is empty unless you actually type something in which case you apear on "the list"
- ok boys radio silence from now on.. (kind of useless with vent and team-speak)
but also it could work well in offense AND defense. offense, you can infiltrate a system and attack and defense, you can hide in a system.
and a few little tweaks could be added to help
1. have a gate activity feed, (like on the overview have a number of ships currently in the system) no names and no ship types (although ship class could be a logical since it gets recorded in the gates frigate, cruiser, battlecruiser, battleship, industrial, barge class ship) like that you dont know if its a tech 2 or a tech 1.
2. have the range of ship basic scanners range different depending on the ship, scout ships have the largest, then frigate the lowest and growing as the ship grows. (right now it stands that its about 14AU for everything (including your pod)
3. if possible somehow add the size of the ship in the scanners, (small med large xlarge)
im sure it takes quite of programming, but in my 1 year of eve, they have done so much more complex additions.
right back to my question, before wormholes how was the idea of no local?
and what do you think of the idea i posted? pros and cons
