I'd love to see High sec versions of WH space that need to be probed like current WH space is for stuff.
Carebear WH space if you like, bots wouldn't be much use in them as everything would need to be probed out.

To make them viable for miners they could hold some of the ores that Low sec areas house.
Maybe have a couple of minor plexes to kill stuff in etc

Have the odd station in them run by some lost tribe or race for use as a hangar and no other services.

It's just not logical to have only low sec/0.0 type WH space tbh.

Yep you guessed it, I'm a old carebear ugh Razz

Unfortunately, it is indeed possible to script a bot to probe.

So essentially just an upgraded version of hisec? I dont think it would work, it would just become overcrowded.

All WH space is 0.0 sec and below, and for a reason - it is uncharted space, completely unclaimable, no infrastructure (hence no local channel), and thus even worse than nullsec as far as security goes.

Ah, didn't know bots were all that advanced :S

Just thought it would be nice way of expanding High sec without adding extra regions for it.

High sec is a tad more congested in certain hub areas these days and figured high sec WH areas wouldn't be to bad.

So ends my foray into the ideas forum lol.

This is basically the idea behind incursions. 90% of eve subscriber base are highsec carebears, and average retention is 6 months. When they run out of things to do in highsec, some move to safe sov-null for more farming, most just leave for another more interesting game. Few ever venture to whs. All the wh pve content CCP created are not actually being used, and don't help retaining costumers and making them money. While all other gaming companies try to find out what their costumers want then try to deliver it, CCP tried to tell their costumers how to play a game they paid for. In an environment lacking direct competition of other space sim mmos, it's doable. But now that games such as Black Prophecy are about to come out, we're looking at a potential exodus.

Let me ask you something in return: Does Chewbacca live on Endor?
You see, it makes no sense.

The closest thing to hisec Wspace is a Class 1 system.


You can experiment with most wspace activities with little chance of running into anyone but other newer folks.
