I wonder what the effect of the game would be if we only had jump gates in Empire only and had to use cyno to get to 0.5 and below. think about this cyno-sural feild theory. level 1 player can only jump frigs and destroyers. lv 2 cruisers lev 3 battle ships.. you get the idea. then this would eliminate gate camps, corps would have to really be on thier guard to keep cyno's from popping up. lone players would have more ability to get around and explore or pass thru with out the griefer's getting thier daily kill mails. I think this would be a good idea.(IMO anything that makes gate camping non profitable is a good idea. Pos's would be used to protect assets only and not the whole damn system. So there would be fighting and corps would be able to defend thier area's of interest but not be able to cut the whole damn area of from everyone.

What fighting? What inability? You just effectively made existing corp-held systems into invincible strongholds, because no one inside will lit a cyno for enemy.

How do POS' protect systems? Isnt it more of an asset and mining thing since we use TCUs?

No. Just no.

Those "griefers" sit there boring their asses off for hours with nobody coming through, some days nothing comes, others a shuttle or a ceptor comes. Gatecamping IS unprofitable, compared to many other things.

How do all the kestrels get into the system to light the cyno?

well yeah I run into gate camps all the time. but the reason I put this post up was to see what other players thought. but I have a question about the gates In 0.0 who the hell put them there any way if eve gate collapsed before they was explored. yes I do read chronicles back stories. any way it was a random thought I wanted some feed back. thank you
