I think there is an easy way to make EVE bigger and to break up the "Power Blocs". Make Session timers 5 minutes instead of 30 seconds, make capital drives and jump portal generators spool up to something like 30 minutes before jumping. With the increase in travel time there won't be 30 minute responses half way across the galaxy anymore.

You must be plain stupid. Shocked

How about more solar systems?

EVE already has far too much waiting around for things to happen, adding a vastly increased delay to every stargate and jump drive activation is crazy.

May as well have named the thread 'Make EVE Boring-er'

wanting to break up powerblocks I understand but this is not the way.
not supporting this.

Go find some of the better ideas like making standings cost isk to alliances and corps. 1st one 1 mil, 2nd 10, 3rd 100 etc etc that was the geral idea, for both positive and negative.

That is also plain stupid tbh.

Well, increasing session timers will change a few things. It means that when someone jumps into you they can no longer burn back to the gate. When going through systems you have to wait 5 minutes before you change systems so when you go into a system you'll have to warp to a safe and keep warping around or you'll get scanned down and killed (depending on the ship of course.) No more undocking and redocking without consequence.

I'm not saying your ship should be invulnerable for 5 minutes, keep that at 30 seconds, I'm saying by increasing regular travel time you make travel more meaningful. The increase or "Spool up time" for capitals is just a way to make sure people don't circumvent the increase in travel time by just taking titan bridges.

I was just thinking by taking an action and having to commit to it without the safety net of burning back to the gate or redocking or having the ability to jump from one part of the galaxy to another in such short periods of time would really make the projection of power a lot more meaningful.

No. That is not plain stupid. What is stupid is adding even more delays to a game that is already slow and unresponsive.

Well yes that is stupid, but adding more solar systems is also stupid. Just gives the large powerblocks more space to install pets and macros.

That's just stuuuupiiiiiiiiiid...

What about traders, and logistics?
It would take them hours to move stuff?
it would make not lucrative enough to move stuff around... So, only one manufacturing and trading Hub per region, maybe nothing in LS and nullS or horrible price increase...), since it would be even more dangerous to go there? It would mean no more small-size PVP fleet too, no more roaming, etc...
