A good day fellow capsuleers,

as the title for this topic already states, I wish to see Faction Warfare improved. There have been alot of topics about this in the past, and I think I read all of them. However I see complaints and suggestions on improving current systems but I haven't seen any suggestions on overhauling the complete FW system. I would like to see people talk about this in this topic right here. If you feel like thinking a bit or have already come up with new systems for FW, please post them here.

All the posts here will be read and evaluated by me, and probably many other pilots. I plan on gathering all info and suggestions together in order to make a system that will please most of the pilots in FW and to get CCP to implement these new systems. You can make short term or long term suggestions, anything you want, we'll discuss it.

Summary:
Post suggestions for fixing FW
Post suggestions for overhauling the FW systems (either in part or completely)
Discuss!

Just complaining about current systems is not the point here unless you manage to suggest improvements for it as well.

Summary of most prominent current issues:
- Unbalanced npc's
- Plexing has no incentive to get people into it besides RP
- Plexing is possible to do in a frigate, even in major ones
- Occupancy is useless
- FW missions give too much incentive for people not actually interested in the war to make big isk!
- Plexing timers are bugged.
- Bunker sieges are boring
- Too many blobs
- Inexperienced pilots all over
- FW needs more promoting
- Plexes allow faction ships but not tech II ships (except for the unrestricted majors) which causes overpowered pirate faction frigates

There you go, have fun =)

Yes, FW needs more promoting, it's an issue I overlooked. I'll add it in the first post as well.

Another issue that I just added to the first post.

You're kidding right? CCP has bailed on FW ages ago, like 15 minutes after implementing it. As if they would do anything that any players actually suggest...

Incursions will be just as abandoned and just as broken in a month or two, and they'll be on to the next great idea

if they were actually ever gonna fix broken content they could start with Cosmos, then FW. in fact the two are supposed to be related anyway

Make it so the occupancy of a system means something. Some idea's (some extreme, some not so much):-

1.) Cannot use service's inside stations with enemy occupancy, but can still dock
2.) Increase cost of using services inside stations under enemy occupancy
3.) Cannot dock inside stations with enemy occupancy
4.) Agent quality of militia agents decreases over time while under enemy occupancy (the reverse happens over time back up to original quality of agent)
5.) Cannot use militia agents under enemy occupancy
6.) Increase the LP gained for killing enemy militia ships inside a plex.

1, 4 and 6 would give some reason for flipping the occupancy back and forth especially for all the people who are just in FW to farm LP, while not being too harsh and restrictive.

Pipeline is Incarna, followed by Dust 514 integration. I would expect COSMOS/Missions Revamp, FW, and Incursions Mk 1.5 at the earliest in next year's summer expansion.

Well, then we got a reason to make suggestions already so we can improve on it in order to get it in by then =)
