Yah, factional warfare is one of the big things in the upcoming Kali expansion.

Exactly how it's going to work is anyone's guess, though.

Maybe they will set up pvp zones at the boarders.... kinda like 0.0 space except when you die you dont lose anything?:P

Oh please god no...

If you're in a war you're in a war and should be able to be ganked anywhere and could lose everything at any time.

well anyway i am afraid it will be team oriented missions along the lines of 'outpost needs tritanium!' vs 'stop tritanium haulers inbound'.
would be pretty funny if there actually were PvP zones in the border area where you get autoflagged to the 'enemy' faction if you ahve enisten for military service.
that way you can choose when to have fun and residents of the area would not run into danger of being randomly ganked more than by the standard set of gate griefers.

i think the war aspect could be fun, although i hope the battles will be kept to 0.0 - 0.3 space as us noobs will get battered, at least until we get some harder ships, or some friends with big ships to hide behind going "YEEAAHH" shaking a metaphorical fist behind them to our enemies Very Happy

I hope its fully encompassing - everywhere, everyone who signs up for service with a faction. I can see Gallente and Caldari fleets making thrusts into each other's highsec space now, and would love it.

Dear heavens I hope you're joking - the moment this happens, CCP headquarters will be consumed by a mob of EVE veterans out for revenge YARRRR!!.

I also hope it is all encompassing in the idea of being able to actually take over empire space opens up soo many possibilities I mean we might actually get some gallente roleplaying going on...

It will definitely be an opt-in feature, so noobs can fly free in secure space with nary a care in the universe. Most likely in the form of accepting missions from a specific corp or agent division. Another possibility is that they will enable you to join like the Federation Navy NPC corp which will be at war with the Caldari Navy NPC corp, and then those people can duke it out. However, I think they'll want to make it easy to opt-in and opt-out, so maybe a combination of both.

Additionally, there seemed to be mention of specific systems being up-for-grabs, so maybe those areas will be locked down for only NPC faction members to enter to engage in war. I am thinking they might even supply pre-fitted ships for people to use so that you don't have to risk losing your whole wallet in a futile bid to defend the Federation.

It may have some interesting, widely felt effects, even on people who don't participate, such as by virtue of security ratings changing or faction sovereignty changing. But it will not turn Empire into 0.0, like I'm sure a lot of non-carebearing people want, because CCP will never want to alienate carebears, empire denizens, and easily frightened noobs. Personally I agree with that stance because not only are they an important playerbase for keeping CCP in business and generating an amazing in-game economy, but also because it's perfectly legitimate form of gameplay which I can see the appeal of.

Exactly what a lot of pirates interested in factional warfare are thinking, myself included Twisted Evil. I don't know, one of three scenarios would arise in my opinion:

1) They disband, leaving the faction navies and sentry guns to respond to any in-system aggression.
2) They begin operating on their own without funding from the empires, and still operate the same, while trying to restore general peace.
3) The begin operating on their own, but don't give a crap about the war.

I read 2 and 3 as the same Wink

But I think it more like you can pledge alliagance with one of the 4 races (or corps in them). And that this will tag you as a valid target of people that aligned with the warring race. Just like war dec between corps run now.

I'd hope it's not to the fedration or republic or empire or... you enroll with, but to corps or a new faction concept (Imagine a war between the order of St Tetrimon and the concil of apostles for example)
I'd hope the enrollment would be time-limited so once you've enrolled ot a side and it's losing you'd better learn the virtues of running. Razz but not endlesslyWink
