I know you have great dreams and schemes for NULL SEC. I have read and commented on your blogs for that. Still, I feel compelled to chime in on the forums on the basic lack of PEW PEW that is keenly felt and IS VERY REAL in LOW SEC.
When I first started playing this game, PEW PEW was to be had in abundance throughout LOWSEC. Now, you can virtually go for hours in a 8-10 man fleet and find absolutely nothing. 8 out of 10 systems in LOW SEC are absolutely empty except for us. Why is that?
At the time I write this, on a patch day, the server population is a whopping 16k. This is American prime time and nobody is on!!! I know there was a server reboot tonight, but we have rarely seen server pops above 24k in American prime all month. Please REALIZE that you have a REAL problem here.
I know you plan to fix NULL in the next patch and over the next five years. I know you have made a major investment in WIS and see that as "the future of EVE." However, don't forget what got you where you are - FLYING IN SPACE! Not just part of space (NULL), but all of space!!! Sure, NULL needs some love. Yet, while working on that, don't make us wait until next year or the year after to see LOW SEC get some serious attention! You need to do something to bring back some server population. Right now, it's boring! A sandbox game is only as interesting as the players you have in playing in it.
Flying for hours through empty system after empty system looking for some PVP action is simply NOT FUN!
Just had to get that off my chest!

PS - Not quitting, just asking the DEVS, what is the plan to bring back some server population and inhabit LOW SEC???
The pirates drove all the mission runners out of low sec, so the devs are running out of idiots to send to their deaths to pirates who are really just gankers.
Everyone who complains about lowsec being dead don't realize they are the same ones killing it, and they have to expect MASSIVE changes to low sec beyond more missions, like making gate guns actually be able to force that permacamp off the field.
