So why raise hopes by scheduling a round-table?

And do you really think that they will be starting work on fixing FW in January?


I don't think that's fair Rodj, they didn't even show up at the round table so you have to admit they made it really clear that they didn't care about it (FW).

January is reserved for blasters I hear, so it will be february (2015).

The research shows that attending your own fan fest does not increase sales.

I doubt they know what exactly they want to do with it. I mean they said in june 2010 that they wouldn't be able to work on it for 18 months. Someone went to fan fest 9 months later and didn't get any information. Well there probably wasn't any information to give.

I don't know why they scheduled the round table. I can only speculate that they had fw round tables in the past and the organizer jsut left it on the schedule. Hence no one came.


As far as when will they start? I don't know. They have to finish the null sec expansion. Of course if that has major bugs then it may delay things. But once they get that release launched I think then team BFF will be looking at FW and low sec too.

Its a small team but I think its a very good team. Hopefully they just do some minor balancing with null sec so they can get over to fw.

But once they start to focus on FW I do not think we will hear back until they decide what direction they want to take FW plexing. It is a core mechanic and has been broken for years. They have to decide if they want it to remain a pve activity where you go shooting npcs or if they are going to take steps to make it more of a pvp activity.

They also may want to design some sort of award for occupancy plexing. However they have to be concerned with a situation where everyone joins the winning side.

They might also add a few fw exclusive items to the store. Or at least boost some that are pretty worthless like amarr armor plates.

I don't think the actual changes will be so hard technically, but I do think they should carefully consider the implications of their actions.

I updated the original post with a little summary of what has happened since the start of this thread in regards to FW since these forums will be locked (again Laughing) soon with the coming (re-)release of the new Eve forums...

Yes, I admit it. Me and my alts comprise 62% of the Gallente and Caldari FW populations right now.

Roughly $400 to flip a system's occupancy? Totally not worth it. CCP scam best scam.

Bump in old forums...

I've got to head out and won't be back before DT - so I fully expect this to be my last post on the old forums. So I figured I should use it to bump THIS thread in the hope that it is immortalised on the front page of the archived old forums General Discussion topic list...

This thread WILL be continued on the new forums BTW YARRRR!!

Bumping for great justice.

It's possible these forums won't be frozen until they're 'archived' later this week.

Well, I am back from touch rugby and the forums are still here.
So to give a non-bump bump, I guess I will tell you all that we lost, I scored our only touchdown (yay for me) and CCP STILL haven't shown the slightist desire to make up the the FW community for what happened at fan fest 2011...

FW was interfering with nullsec.

At its most popular there were more enjoyable and more importantly playable cap ship and small to medium gang fights in fw than in nullsec.

Not to mention the literal thousands and thousands of nullsec thralls dumping the nullsec game for fw.

The nullsec leaders then started crying like little children and ccp made sure to leave fw to rot with all the bugs and exploits.

All fw is now is a free wardec to go station camp and play the redock and ship up game over and over and over and over.

Go figure its a ghost town now.

The sad thing is there is more than a grain of truth to what you say - FW does provide for some great small scale fleet warfare, even with the use of limited caps. Shame the reasons to risk a cap are non-existent in terms of the rewards offered for PvP.

<tl;dr> BUMP!!!

make the system occupancy mean something for the FW-players, like unable to dock up in enemy teritory, or a bonus if you fight in own teritory, or some other reward

Even something minor, like LP rewards for finishing plex's, would go a long way to restoring interest in them. As is, though, I'm all for a reexamination of the entire plex system. 'King of the Hill' can be a fun victory mechanic, but only when you've got other players. Most of the time, you're just orbiting.

Anyways, I'm sure all of the relevant points can be brought up by players much more experienced in FW than I am. The kind of dedicated fans who were willing to travel all the way to Iceland to give a detailed account of their favorite game activity and how to revive interest in it.

Getting them together would be pretty fruitful, don't you think? You can make a roundtable out of it, even.

I agree with alot in this thread and also disagree with some.. But the fact of the matter is that some changes need to be made to FW and need to be made soon..

When i first joined the game it seemed like alot of fun doing missions and other things.. But in the end it got boring.. Then i found Faction Warefare and i can honestly say that i have been playing this game for over 2 years just because i enjoy and love Faction Warfare so much.. Im sure others think the same so it DESERVES Your attention CCP..

I absolutely love the idea of Faction Warefare kills (Player Vs Player kills) giving out LP and perhaps they should give the most LP instead of just boring missions that i and many others dont even do..

Like has been said too many people join FW and dont even fight against the other Militias they just collect tons of LP for little effort.. Faction Warefare deserves better than that and should be based around PVP..

It could be made based on ship type.. For e.g Killing an enemy militia pilots frig gets you 1000 LP killing an enemy militia pilots battleship gets you 5000 LP that would be so much better than what we have now and if your fleeted it can be shared between all on the kill..

Please listen to us CCP and turn this game around for the benefit of the players and in turn the benefit of yourselves..

- DC
