My suggestion is to modify local chat so that it doesn't show who is in system.

Local chat is currently used as a tactical tool and I believe this hinders the atmosphere and game play potential of the game.

This would make space much more exciting, potentially lead to more dynamic pvp opportunities and would encourage people to work together more and in new ways. It would make space feel like the giant ocean it is, not just a series of interconnected fishbowls.

I believe that CONSTELLATION chat should auto-update, rather than local chat. This way hostiles can still be located but not instantly pinpointed to a single system.

I think this would be a balanced change for the better, as though it may benefit a potential attacker, it may also benefit someone who doesn't want to engage ie a miner or someone hauling. It would make fleets more reliant on intelligence from players rather than from a box full of names.

While I could see this as an advantage in some cases it would be a major, major, disadvantage in my case.

Changing local like is proposed would undoubtedly further the bias toward really big corporations and alliances even more. It would also make it even harder to do anything by yourself outside of high-sec.

As it is right now, it is simply stupid to rat more than one or two jumps from your buddies, and that is with instant knowledge of who is in system.

If you don't know who is in system at any time then you had better be in a gang of some size if you want to even rat(unless you have a death wish).

Without an actively updated local roaming gangs would make 0.0 life even harder than it is now.

Almost, nobody willingly engages unless they have an advantage, changing local would only force more people to fight and die when they would have rather run.
