Whine of the week topic is no longer "GTC Prices"

Whine of the week is now: "Ambiguously Temporary Ambiguous Limit on Players in Systems"

I will now amend my prior statement about pirates ransoming traders to get into Jita with a statement that I also expect massive amounts of pos warfare to break out in 0.0 as soon as FCs realize they can stop reinforcements from arriving in a system simply by flooding it with pilots before the defenders can react.

Makes me kind of glad I can't actually *play* atm.

There's no estimation yet, but as I said this has top priority, we can't magically make it happen tomorrow or anything of course, but it shouldn't take too long.


Can you give us the limit number? 50, 500, what?

ITT Wrangler doesn't realise Eve just died.

Added: So when it is fixed are the servers rolling back to today, or is the exploitation of this new (temporary) game mechanic going to be considered legitimate?



What I would like to know is what the cap number really is! If its 300, yes, then it sucks. but if its at 700? 1000? Then I think the numbers wont have that much effect at least on deep space battles. Jita however, who have like 1200 players stuffed there - up from like 700-800 for a few months ago - will maybe become habitable...

Well... i dunno. I am just trying to look from it from the bright side!

Lets see the effect first before we start bringing out the pitchforks! ugh

I agree as well. Please give us the number so this can be further exploited then it will already be.

A much better solution would be to add an afk timer (like WoW and every other decent MMOG) that kicks you out of the game when you have not done anything for 5 or 10 minutes. 75% of the people in Jita are afk sitting in a station.

AFK people don't add to the server load, they're not doing anything, so no information to process for the server.Razz



but they take up the population cap, of which like as said 75% of people in most populated systems are doing

hell, i went to AMMAKE around 30-ish people in local, and i wasnt finding squat on the directional scan, which tells me they were most likely in station or something

This change affects all systems currently, but I'd like to emphasize that this is a temporary fix, not a permanent one. Creating a better solution is top priority and we're working very hard to make it, test it and deploy it in the very near future.

Very near future is like soon, only without the trademark.


Can we exploit petition any entity in the game which is abusing this? *cough* NC *Cough*

TBTFH. This is absolutly BULL**** 1st class.
Let the ****ers in jita be stuck until next DT!!!
The players have chosen jita to be the System what it is.
Now let them suffer the consequences of their choice, until they realise what they have done!

To bad you CCP guys are ****ing all players from behind again without thinking about what your are doing before.

I applaud for you. You are so full of fail guys.... Sorry

then after doing this, they HAVE to implement something to be able to deliver goods seriously, the interbus, whatever, because systems like dodixie ARE going to hit THEIR population cap, and i still have a ton of crap in dodixie (though i have since moved) and its goign to stay that way, sometimes i dont need the things in dodixe until a bit later, and dont want to clutter up my hangar in my current home, so i just leave it there, and go back in a shuttle or something when i need something different



i dont care either if you have to be like in the same constellation or something, but still



EDIT:


p.s., lol i cant wait to see the about face threads

now the ones that ususally ***** about locking going INTO jita, are going to ***** about how they cant get in

i cant wait to see thisTwisted Evil

The player limit should only affect Jita, unless of course you go out of your way to abuse it. But that's also why we'll have extra GMs tonight.

At this point perhaps freezing all POS war until the fix is deployed might be a band aid worth considering. If I was in an alliance that lost space to alt spamming system lockouts I'd rage quit for sure. People will abuse the crap out of this you can be sure.

Since you're kinda dumb, I'll explain for you.

The limit currently affects all systems. However, the limit is so high that it should only affect Jita, unless you make an effort to go and do it in another system.

Well, let's not be morons. In the world of mmo CCP is golden.

But, where is the Infiniband that has been promised more than a year ago? I thought part of my subscription was going to THAT kind of solutions, not the one you're showing us today. I want good solutions, not half assed solutions prone to be exploited and cutting player traveling freedom.

read wranglers new reply

it should only affect jita

which means that there will probably be a universal cap of aroudn 1000 or something like that, whcih i can live with


if you need 500 people to take out a POS, then you need to quit POS warfare

(im assuiming YOU have 500 people, and the enemy will deploy a fleet about the same size of about 500)

well, I was just told in a petition that the player limit is "WAY over 500" so I'm guessing from simple deduction that it won't apply to systems outside of jita because the current fleet battles in the north haven't been getting to "WAY over 500" (granted lag, etc. will still be a factor Evil or Very Mad)
