The issue of having the "Number of pilots in space" option on the map is a long one. I personally am torn between the pure fun information factor of this feature of the map and the tactical disadvantages it has in a Corp or Alliance war.

If had had to vote today to have it or not. I would say not, considering that in the end EVE is served best without it as a game.

But I like to have my cake and eat it to, and I propose the following:

As a price of conducting war, and acting as a fog of war. That anyone involved in a war have this feature removed from thier map, along with all other similar features that can show player movement. This ban would only apply to players involved in a war and would extend to all thier alts. Thons not in a war will have the feature as it is now.

I realize that there is an issue of people with multiple accounts. But I know the brilliant minds at CCP can easily link those based on something common.

Just an idea, open for discussion or dismissal. Thought welcome.

It would be an interesting idea until everyone in the war starts up a noob-corp alt character

Please believe me when I say that I've been trying for 2 minutes now to express this in a more polite or constructive way but... this idea sucks.

No offense man, seriously Wink

If only the people participating in the war are affected by this "fog of war", then a noob alt would allow tactical view of the map. Nullifying the change.

Ditch pilots in space and local in 0.0
Make it possible for a group that has soverengity (sp?) over an area see pilots in space for their area. Homefield advantage and such.

I usually think your posts are intelligent and well thought out (I'm unique!), but I think the use of the phrase non-sequitur reminds me too much of my father. So from now on I'm going to filter that phrase away. Laughing
