After reading the interviews regarding this idea suggested by CCP, I felt that it was a bad idea to even think about removing ABC ores from WH space. Read about the 0.0 and WH comparisons here.

The same can be said about the ice belts.

The only way I will support these changes (that appear to favor the 0.0 alliances) is if CCP implements at least one of the following changes in addition to their own:

1. Removal of Local from 0.0 space.
2. Restricting Technetium moons to WH space.
3. Restricting Mercoxit to WH space.

or

4. Restricting the 0.0 jump bridges to one per constellation instead one per system. (or remove them completely).

If CCP is not willing to implement the above changes in addition to the idea of removing ABC ores from WH space and limiting ice belts to 0.0, then this is just a clear indication that CCP will be padding the 0.0 alliance coffers while giving freelance industrialists the ****ty end of the stick.

This seems to be a well thought out suggestion and not at all the petulant foot-stomping of a butthurt child. CCP should hire you and put you on their balancing team immediately.

Just thought of something about the above post. Why is there local chat in 0.0 or even low sec???

The RP/Lore reason is that it's a service provided by CONCORD, who manage the gates themselves (including the ones in null sec), so it is freely available to all capsuleers who enter the system.

Ok I guess I should have done a little reading before I postedEmbarassed But thanks for the Info. I do think it would be nice though if it was removed.

Yes to removal of local from nullsec. Nothing I'd enjoy more then a nullsec exit from w-space without local to give me away. Then we can just take our ABC from the twisted wrecked hulls of nullsec mining bots.

Hey... I think the OP's onto something there!

Thank Flying Spaghetti Monster that reasonable people are on the CSM so that horrible ideas like this won't even be considered.

Restricting technetium to WH space is just silly, as is the jump bridge suggestion.

Removal of local is a no brainer and I really like the idea of mercoxit only being in wh space.

@OP: I think your ideas are absurd. But I also think removing ABC from WH space is also absurd.

I am in favor of greatly reducing the amount of mercoxit found in 0.0, and perhaps significantly reducing the ABC found in weak sissy WH systems. It's so cheap and easy to setup in a class 3 system and get tons of ABC, while half of nullsec is forced to mine ****ty lowsec ores. Also, mercoxit is so low in value now that I wonder if the people who are mining it are even aware that it's a waste of time.

I think it would make sense if class 3 WH systems had no ABC, class 4 had some crokite, and only class 5 and 6 had any significant amount of ABC. And mercoxit should be available in all WH system classes as well as all levels of 0.0, but should be pretty rare. Lower sec regions and higher class WH systems should have more of it, but it should still be something you have to look around for. That would make it worth mining, and would make pilots think twice about fitting tech 2 modules on a ship they intend to lose in a fight. And THAT would increase new pilot access to nullsec sovereignty.

I like it the way it is right now, but I may like limiting mercoxit to wh space though.
