Mining/Lowsec Buff And Drone nerf and mission change.

1:Move 50% of highsec ore belts and 25% nullsec ore belts to lowsec.

2:Decrease drop rate of drone compouds, or add items to make drone's instead of compounds.

3:Decrease the amount of drops or remove drops altogether(except tags and such) in missions and increase LP payout.

Effects that i hope these changes will bring:

1:This large decease of belts in high sec and (not so large) in null will decrease the amount of ore's mined, while demand will stay the same, thus inreaseing Isk per M.

2:Decreasing supply of minerals, widening the gap between supply and demand.

3:Decreasing supply of minerals from loot, and increasing the amount of LP will again decrease the amount of minnerals coming into EvE and the increase of LP will make getting faction items from the LP store faster, thus removing ISK from EvE faster.

These changes will hopefully make mining pay more, remove isk from eve faster, and with the large increase of belts in lowsec, hopefully draw more players there.

1. Won't really help much. They should really go back to the "belts only respawn on M/F" method... except maybe veld/scord in 1.0 - 0.8 or something.

2. Make them "drop" salvage (i.e. you need to salvage the wrecks). Balance to mainly drop stuffs for drone-related things (rigs or T2)?

3. yes, reduce the trash.

Any further nerf of high sec is not affordable by ccp. Btw high sec has already had too much nerfs the last 24 month.

High sec reflects the paying player base. Over 70% of the user are living here. And about our nullsec citizens... CCP will not have introduced a project to make null sec more independent to take away 25% of their available ores.
With more nerfs ccp will loose customers. What I am sure they dont want to have.

If you will find buffs that dont nerf other areas (in particular high sec) like a new form of mining in which the ore contains ALL minerals. On an average price this ore could be around 150 isk /m3, or the drops are of better value here, rate of faction rats increase like shadow serpentis etc.
