The moveme channel is a very useful tool that saves a lot of time for a lot of players. The one issue with it is the requirement of a member of ccp or a BH to be present, so why not cut out the middle man? A simple way of doing this would be to have a script or a bot which periodically (every 5 mins or something) moves the enitre channel to fd- and then kicks them from the channel to avoid lag.

This would be very useful as I have spent many an hour waiting to be moved and so have many others and this also free's up members of ccp and BH to allow them to do other tasks.

also please post any ideas you may have :)

cheers,
chris

A big +1 to this. Automatic moving of players to FD-MLJ in Sisi would be extremely advantageous for everyone, CCP/ISD/BH and regular players alike.

They tried this, it got abused they removed it. would take to much time and have to many potiential impacts on the test cluster to have it automated and close the loop holes

what they did before was allowed players to choose where they want to go, this system will move you to fd- with no user input and the script should be prety simple and the time saved would compensate for the time lost

Considering almost everyone on SiSi are now noobs just looking for SP, let me explain.

CCP did this before, you would type your destination in and get moved there automatically. People were abusing this feature to get to Jove space and dock up if they were dying and tackled.

Also, whats wrong with autopilot to get there?

People will still abuse it to get docked while tackled or near death...

Couldn't they just set up worms at strategic locations around the cluster all exiting in FD-?

Wouldn't help for someone in the arse-end of 0.0 but I think it would help the majority.

Big deal. Its a test server, features which allow players to get to where the testing is are a good thing.

Try autopiloting from the C6 wormhole

Self destruct your pod and then autopilot?

LMAO. FD-MLJ is not where the testing is, it's where people fight in FFA zones. Testing goes on in other systems.

How about this: Provide an automatic move facility, but move only players that are not aggressed.
If a player has a lock on him, hold on the move until he's in a pod or the attackers lose interest.
Ensure there's a random delay on the move so people don't use it to escape.

There are plenty of ways to do this without inviting abuse. The only question is whether it's a worthwhile investment.

They had a move-me bot before. It worked great. And as i remember you had to be docked in station, with no session change timer. and all you did was type move me in the "move-me" channel and the bot took care of you. Not sure why they quit using it though.

Its where CCP's mass-testing fleets form up and often where they fight.

No, that was a whole TWO JUMPS away today. I figured FD- was the closest station so that's where I fit my ship. Since cynos were available anyhow I don't see how it matters; capitals and subcapitals alike could get to the testing systems easily.

Yes, Bring back moveme bot but make it so you say, can't move out of FD-MLJ only in.
