But the rent is too damn high.

"sandbox" = The idea of the Sandbox in eve is to allow the players to drive the results. In any scenario you do this you will drive a few major power blocs, a few second and third tier power blocks and their pets. the idea to put in measures to stop this would in fact prevent the open "sandbox" results you are stating are not there.

The 2 additional points i want to deflate for you are as follows
1.) "Even besides all of aspects of the game created by player influence, there remains the countless changes by CCP to help these major alliances in their continued domination of every aspect of the game. Recent improvements to 0.0 incomes for example, infrastructure improvements"
Look, one of the MAIN reasons for some of the dominion changes was in fact to try and accomplish the exact opposite. CCP changed game mechanics to make it EXTREMELY expensive to hold space and easier to take it over. In addition, they added even more costs for upgrades. Do you realize that having a system with a jump bridge now costs 300 mil a month and cyno jammed system now costs 600 mil a month... EACH.. on top of regular sov bills and such. This on what used to be essentially free.
Their upgrades to plexes and other PVE elements were to allow alliances to reduce space and support same number of people. If you don't know already.. a team of about 5-10 people (or less) could consume all of the DED complexes in an entire region in less than a day. In most cases these changes didn't impact 0.0 the way CCP intended, but the point is still valid that you are misunderstanding CCPs intent.

2.) only a few alliances dominate and no one else can play the 0.0 game (yes im paraphrasing)
basically this is inaccurate also. If you .. as 1 person wanted to take over some 0.0 space.. you CAN.. not easily.. but then again, those that have the space didn't get it easily. you either:
A.) form an alliance, build it up good and strong, prove its worth and get taken in as an ally.. build up stronger until you are independent.. or
B.). work your ass off as a renter.
0.0 is obviously a lot more dynamic that you know. here are a list of just a FEW space holding 0.0 alliances that have come and gone
Roadkill
Smash
DMC
IAC
Ka Tet
Triumvirate
IRON
TCF
Not to mention the recent issues around BOB/Kenzoku/IT alliance and most recently Goonswarm.

Without knowing what the OP is in response to, it's just a bunch of noise.

May I suggest the "reply" button as an alternative to "new topic"?

So not only does your title not make sense but neither does your post. Every point you try to make is not only wrong but you came to the conclusion through sheer ignorance. Everybody IN 0.0 is playing the game the way it was meant to be played. Even if you are not in a 0.0 alliance there is nothing stopping you from going in and playing with the right skills. Your lack in skill is not CCP's failure...it's your own. Since you seem to be one of the few that are unable to survive in 0.0 then the failure is clearly your own and you have no leg to stand on to argue otherwise.

Now...quit being a baby and play the game or go somewhere else.

to me it seems like, stupidity drives attention away from real issues. Silly jokes don't solve problems, just put them away for a while.

I believe the title references the candidate from the "Rent is too D-nm High Party" in the last NeW York governors election.

But ya I didnt try to make sense of the post either.

Ah but the thing about Karate is that even though you know how to use it, you're trained not to, or so some monkey in a bar told me once. I never understood until now...

He is an acknowledged expert but only talks about it on chat-shows and news reports involving locks... He hasn't picked a lock for twenty years due to an altercation with a Chubb outside his home that left him traumatised...
