**This is just an example of an idea I had to help pvp. I know the numbers I supplied don't apply to everything, for example, a planet or moon. Just an idea I wanted to throw out. I think more people might be interested in pvp if their exit point is less predictible.

What if you had a few more choices while warping to something? Example:

Right Click on object.
-Warp To
------Custom Warp

The different distances under custom warp would be how far you exit warp from the object.

good idea, the range of ranges could depend on a skill, Warp drive opps, or Nav maybe.

you could still follow just wouldnt always warp in 20 km from the gate.. somtimes you would warp in at 75 from gate.. or somthing like that .. kinda like the keep at range 500km type of thing

Can't you find enough velators and ibis' to warp scramble? You can kill them that way, just how it's been before.

This feature would not affect gate camping and killing noobs.

Don't worry, your PvN (Player v. Noob) will still be safe.

If anything, it will make running for your life from Pirate Hunters easier :)

I'd like the option to just right click anywhere and warp. Then a second option to cancel an active warp.

That way you could warp in little sections to various places. You could even explore by warping to see if you can find derelict or abandonned space stations. Things you would never find (and shouldn't find) if you stuff to popular and frequently used trade lanes.

Plus I would like to see more 0.0 space added with 0 stargates. The only way to get there is warping which could take a hell of a long time. But couple this with the option to build player maintained stargates, and you could carve out your own empire.

Make the stargates usable by corp members or people who have paid you and you've allowed access to the gate for them, or people who have a hacking skill higher than your gate security maintainance skill (+random flucuation) and you ahve even more oppertunity.

Imagine a lone trader who has hacked several gates to provide himself with a lucritive trade route which other players don't have since he can make a few jumps they have to make loads.

PVP would be increased in the 0.0 regions as there would now be a reason to be out there. Setup your own gates to gain access to better areas. You need to protect your gates or risk been cuttoff from the main empire for a short while.

This would bring more elements to a corp war, no longer just mash their ships, but maybe tactically take out a few stargates to cut them off.

M0RPHEUS you have a one-deminsional thinking process. Why not come back with an idea like somebody already suggested (don't remember who) like a tracking device (missile/charge/ammo) instead of the old and tired standby "You dirty rotten carebear!"?

You ready for the suggestion? Here you go:
You shoot a tracking device at em and it connects it don't matter where tehy run to, you will find them.

And by the way, carebear aint really an effective insult anymore. All it really does is bring an image of a big teddy bear to mind. Something cuddly and safe. And it really doesn't make me feel bad at all. Find something new because that one has lost its umph factor.

That will be good if they will implement it
