OK, seriously....

Who here sits at their screen while on a 34 jump trip through hi-sec?

I go off and do something else.

So instead of having your ship sit aimlessly in space once destination is reached, have the autopilot dock it at the designated station as well. So when you come back, your ship is already docked.

EVE is a time intensive game. There is alot of waiting for most everything...why make the wait hard on the player?

BTW: a cool animation of your ship being towed into the station would be nice...you cant change ships for 30 secs anyway, so may as well use up that time with some pretty graphics.

Autodock assists those who play afk. Now I appreciate this is what your asking for but I believe the CCP train of thought on these automated elements is they are not fair against those players who are actively at the computer playing the game.

36 jumps may be somewhat tedious but if you are doing this on a frequent basis it suggests your a trader and I wouldn't suggest autopiloting a valuable haul over that amount of space.

I agree.

Assuming that Autodock warps you 15km away from the station, like Autopilt does 15km from the gates, I don't really see what the problem is.
