Just wondering if we will ever be able to moon mine in 0.4 space. Seems such a waste of cpu to have all those moons already showing their mining information and not to be able to mine them. Most 0.3 and lower moons that have anything valuable to mine have been taken and many new Corporations who are just starting out will not get a chance to try moon mining out.
Now that it is not required to have rep to set up a POS in 0.4 space, seems that it would open up more areas for new Corps to be able to move into and moon mine.

What makes you think we won't drive you off the moons in .4 as well?

Edit:

Really. I mean, seriously what makes you think granting access to more moons will cause a change in the balance of who holds them? What differentiates us from you is not wealth, it's numbers, will, and coordination.

Nullsec alliances don't have one tower or two towers we have hundreds. We don't mine a couple moons in system x, we mine every moon with resource y in region z. When we move into a region we send people out to scan everything, literally, everything, to assess what is worth taking, and then we lay out a plan to take it all. Reinforce five towers a night, build our own, etc etc etc.

We've taken what you want to do as a single or small tower count operation and multiplied it dozens of times over.

If CCP increases the number of moons available for mining, it will not translate into tiny generic corp x getting a moon and finally striking it rich. It will result in big alliance y sending all of its scouts to all the new systems and then later that same week they'll have built towers there and you're back to where you're at now. Staring at a bunch of towered moons you can't have because you have not the will, numbers, and coordination to take them.


Deal wiz it.

You probably would come and take it just to prove that you could but that is not really my point. Just seems that if the moon already shows that it has resourses it should be able to be mined.
