Well, since the 0.0 thread for a response from Soundwave (http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=1547972&page=1#3) actually worked and got a response from CCP Soundwave, I figured I would try a FW pne since the FW thread has been ignored by CCP for months now... CCP Manifest WAS posting, then stopped (or was stopped...)

In case ya'll missed the "ASK EVE" thread response...there's no need to bump. It'll come shortly after Soundwave returns from Russia and we can sit down together. I told you I can't quit you!

You've been patient for this long...just a week or so longer please.

I may have missed them, but I haven't seen any genuine answers in the ASK EVE thread about FW...

So, first CCP miss the FW round table, then after promising us feedback, they just quietly forget us due to screwing the pooch with Incarna/NeX release... Way to commit to excellence there...

There was some genuine interest in the CSM prioritisation for FW, so when will we get some kind of response about what is being done/planned for Faction Warfare???

Playing devils advocate here, but it might be that CCP has plans for FW that involve DUST, and any major changes now might upset DUST development. Because I can't see DUST being only nulsec.

Another possibility is that CCP has realized that Faction Warfare is a bust, and is possibly deciding not to expend more resources in that route. They can't just tell the playerbase this, though, as it would significantly effect FW numbers (which are already low), and they may prefer to leave it in-game as is to let those who do enjoy it for what it is to continue to do so, with the option of coming back to it later.

But I ain't CCP.

Did you see the topic I linked to? 17 pages, 496 replies, many many bumps and 42837 views of the thread.
Also, one of the FW CSM proposals got position 38 of 169 topics (with 6.82% of the vote). Considering some of the higher topics were general "fix XYZ" which effects the whole game (e.g. Corp/Alliance interface/roles etc...), that is a fairly significant response.
So actually, I do think people care...

How many pages and replies are the various 'rate the avatar above me' threads at now?

Not related to your reply, just asking a simple question ...

No idea... Not all threads in the forums are about improving the game - some are just for the amusement of the community Razz

I also agree that its time CCP put sometime into FW, when it was first released it seemed like it would have a big part to play in EVE but it has just been left and forgotten and it looks like most of the guys from CCP are just turning a blind eye to it.

FW could be so much more than it is and be something for the people who have had enough of, or dont want to be involved in 0.0 warfare, so come on CCP give us something atleast.

Good to hear...Hopefully Soundwave will respond to THIS thread since the other one (while still alive) seems to be devoid of CCP interest. Probably because it is not new and shiny and sexy - CCP seem to like shiny obje - oh look over there!!!

If the old thread didn't achieve anything surely this will! (naive optimism)

Maybe they'll just kill the current FW mechanics and replace it with a variety of the Incursion mechanics.

Then you can fight for and against the success of a current assault on a constellation of one or the other faction.

LPs will be given out for participation in cleaning opponent's sites or for keeping a site alive for a certain time frame or something. No more mission grinding.

I was under the impression that FW was a "poisoned chalice" within CCP. Wasn't Noah Ward totally against the whole idea?

Anyway you aren't going to get anything done to FW. Too few people participate (other than missioning) for it to be on the "to do" list. I mean the REAL "to do" list, not the public CSM-friendly list.

Why do you think that is? People keep coming for some pew pew and then often leave as they get bored with the BS mechanics that are killing it - Mission farming, plex spawning issues, people doing all sorts of exploits etc... Yet they do keep popping in and out over time...
If CCP actually did some serious work on FW, it would be THE major source of small gang PvP in the game...

FW PvP is a much better source of PvP for both new and experienced players than most of the 0.0 PvP which consists of little initiative and mostly just following bellowed commands in some 0.0 coalition fleet.

WH PvP, while being generally more challenging however is too difficult for new players, in addition to the steep skill requirements just to survive in there.

FW is already fun, if some of the annoying bugs/exploits would be fixed, and a change to the occupation system, it would be the greatest gap between high and nullsec.

Its a free wardec to shoot a whole lot of dudes, you get some free allies and the last major FW fix made missions a huge income stream.

Maybe there isn't much that needs to be changed?

I 100% support this thread and any thread like it. For the love of marry CCP you wrote a book about Faction Wars and then left it to wither away? I think anything that is important to write a book about should be important enough to develope apon or at least give us a strait ****ing answer. Team BFF(Best Friends Fail) could focus on the little things and maybe that would mean faction wars. Strait answers we want them NOW! "We will develope apon FW" or "We here by discontuine you the public function known as faction wars effective immedately."

Check your move.

I agree but it isn't going to happen. I am of the opinion that FW is the unwanted child and always has been.

Even were it not the numbers of people in FW mean its a niche activity. If CCP didn't have two other games in dev then you might have a chance but we all know the reality of Eve development activity means that is extremely unlikely.

Last time I read CSM minutes, the only mention of FW was under "feature abandonment".

You're also better off changing the title to "Hey Soundwave, we have free brewskies, enter thread to find out how to get them!"

OK - offer of free beer didn't work. Offer is withdrawn due to lack of interest from Soundwave...

******************************
FACTIONAL WARFARE STUFF

There were many questions. Many.
I will be working with Soundwave to get answers for you (not a new effort), yet there will be a slight delay though as right now he's headed to a player meetup in Moscow with CCP Daishi, Molock and Spitfire. Please bear with us.
******************************


This one is directly from the devs answer your question thread. That was a loooong Moscow trip.

There are some REALLY basic things you can do to improve FW. The developer who rectifies the post DT plex rush problem by distributing the plex re-spawns over whole day will get to smoke unlimited waterpipe if/when he/she visits Istanbul.

People still do FW?

My corp tried to sign up for that maybe 6 or 7 months ago. I said quite plainly that I would not participate at all, simply because of the standings hit I would take.

That aside though, I would still rather just go into low sec and look for someone to shoot at rather than signing up with a militia...

This would be so cool!
