I've been wanting to see a nerf on local for a long time. Delayed chat is good as long as it never shows you in the current system unless you talk.
It's bad news when you can see anyone and anyone can see you. Pirates can check up on targets to see if there are good pickings or if there may be a few too many good players guarding, instead they would have to take the risk. Ninja miners are restricted because they may as well wave a flag and shout "I'm over here". I thought the definition of 'Ninja' was 'invisible'. It's hardly that when someone can get almost every bit of information about you except when you took a dump last as soon as they enter the system. Pirates would have to take risks
and hope that someone is ninja mining and not an entire corp with several sentries who will blow them away immediately.
Currently, the pirates just look at local and decide that someone Who has played 6 months compared to their 2 years is easy pickings, they can take them out without even reloading. I have more risk than that in highsec.
