compulsory would be much better than an opt in. It would greatly increase the need for PVP Industry player relationships. Freelance and Merc would actually become viable. As for the storyline I think an opt will ruin it all.

so if it was mandatory I believe it would bring players together where a very large devide has emerged.

Well, the linux client doesn't list a "join audio" options on the channel.
The mac client gives very choppy sound, and there is no other output device to choose.

*sigh*

if factional warfare is being released:

1. will there be any motive for 0.0 alliances to get involved?
2a. will there be any pvp areas or similiar in 0.0 space or low sec too?
2b. will there be ways to contribute to factional warfare if you are an outlaw and cant enter highsec space?

If there will be accellerator gates to the "battle areas", does that mean no MWDs allowed?

With faction warfare, is there any concern that larger power bloc's become involved and intentionally favoring one faction or another.

Leading to the question, has any thought been put into how an outcome from factional war will impact either the race who the faction belongs to or indeed if the outcomes will affect anyone other than those signed up for factional warfare?

Exactly, we are quite a bit upset to leave our alliances to join FW fights. Thats kinda counter productive for us Rp`ers, dont you think?

Also, while I'm at it, what incentives will there be for participating? I understand why a pirate would join, for free kills in high-sec, and I can understand why a RPer would join, but I'm curious as to why a normal profit-seeker would go in. Will it be more profitable than low-sec is at present - say, will a Gallentean factional warrer be getting Caldari Navy gear from NPCs he kills?

Also, off-topic, having just heard what you said about how alliance members can't join, CCP just failed at factional warfare. I'm not even in an alliance, but I know how much that decision sucks at all levels.

If a corporation signs up, will it be vulnerable "outside" the designated lowsec areas ?

What is the implication for the corporation who sign up in general ?

Are there any ship limitations in the engagements ? (using oppoiste faction's ships ....)

If you look on the Empyrean Age minisite, the features page mentions this, MWD is allowed in FWZ's.

Very choppy sound with Vista... :-/ Also x2 on very quiet.

So basically Alliances can't sign up as the Empire militia is kind of an Alliance itself...

So all the "faction" alliances like -VV-, CVA, UK, EM get it in the shorts...

Alt corp for an alliance holder? That'll go well for CVA.

You've basically gutted the entire RP small-Alliance thing at the behest of the larger 0.0 Alliances. Our entire ethos is dedicated to our various "factions" - and you've just told us that we need to be more serious about signing up to it.
Nice way to alienate the "original" factional warfare players - the RP alliances that have existed almost as long as the game has.

It has to happen though. Otherwise it will be dominated by the 'big' 0.0 Alliances - which is counter productive as the feature is supposed to help Empire players adjust to high intensity PVP so they can eventually move up and onwards to .0 themselves.

I big alliances need leaders who are on. If they start trailing off, than the alliance will fall. To experience 0.0, you need to be apart of a roaming gang that will look for ratting ships and experience the group effort. I'm looking forward to this factional warfare and how something like this will work.

Right, so all the members of the big alliances realy have to do is creat a "FW corp" so they can jump in when they want to FW so you end up with FWGoonfleet, FWBOB and so on.

Guess I will wait 2 months for the transcript, the sound is always garbled on the Live Dev Blog, maybe it should be streamed using the EveTV site, and not use the crap that is Eve Voice.

I heard a couple of words before the Live Dev Blog started, but now I can't hear anything.

Please type your answer so I can understand what you are saying :)



Relogging will most likely fix this.

Tried it... took 10 minutes for "join audio" to come back up after fiddeling with the "eve voice enabled" check box and when I finally got back on with voice... nothing... again.
At least before I could hear some choppy stuff like "exploration....scan...pvp...etc...".
Will this be taped and posted somewhere?
I'd really love to listen in.

they have ans that question... yes, you need a 0.5+ standing and then you can join them similar to joining a corp

How do you guys see the "Lag Monster" reacting to creating a sort of dynamic, NPC driven warfare inbetween factions?

This seems great and all but did you guys calculate the Lag effect this will have?

so the basically just said nano's will rule all in factional warfare.

Put away your ideas of battleships and massive slugfests guys, it's vagabonds and rapiers at the ready.

Well, thank you for answering my question about what PvE content there is in Faction Warfare. I am very dissapointed that the answer is: "A big, fat, NOTHING." But, that is that.

If I wanted to PvP more I would be already PvPing more. I don't need another expansion that is trying to trick me into doing it more than I already do it......

Maybe the PvEers will get something next time.....

Cheers I guess....
