The same way we used to do it before the cursed highways were created. You set a course and go make a coffee

As in you now have 6 jumps between Luminaire and Yulai, and 8 jumps between Luminaire and New Caldari.

At least they didn't give those damn carebear pirates their unsecure space in between as they whined so much about getting.

They arent "gone" by any means. They just increased ranges slightly to combat server load.

To be honnest.
THIS IS HORSE ****!!! and I mean that...

Now why you cut the short routes between the main systems?
Why not just connect pator-lum, lum-amarr, new cal-pator, etc
Why go an extra buffer jump??
It seems to me they totally miss understood the intention of the change.

I never understood why ppl wanted to get rid of the super highways..
Just becus they got cramped?
Well....
You don't need to get rid of them becus you feel it's to many ppl in there.
And the rp part of that makes sence.

Look to Europe..
We are starting to connect all the largers cities in Europe tighter.
So why whouldn't it be that case for EVE empire space?
I don't feel the roleplaying part of it should be a negative reason for a superhighway system.

Secondly.. CCP totally missunderstood the intention of what ppl told them.. Most of them atleast.
We didn't want chockeholds.. Like Yulai...
The problem whit Yulai was that if you wanted to go from north empire to south you needed to go trough Yulai.
Or from north/south to east or west.
It was a junction. All the rouths went trough there.
If you rerouted options for norht-south. and north/south to east or west.

The most obvius way to do this is connecting all the sentral sytems to eachother.

Dont be a muppet.

How people can compare Eve - A Space simulation game to Europe fricking baffles me.

Fact is this change is GOOD! Less lag, slightly more change or regional markets re-appearing. So what you have to spend an extra 10 minutes travelling? Suck it up, live with it.

Its here to stay.

your missing the point
its not that there where lots of people there
it was that the load they produced made the systems un-usable.
and as most n00bs had to go via there at one point places like yulai became totaly jammed!

I never ment to state so either.
And I never said so either.

But it was ment as a comparisent.
Becus all the nations are friendly to eachother.
And they have created Concord, as a common force to bind them all. (however unsucsessfull)
And a result of that is interelative trade.
In europe this have been an ongoing process as a result off WW2, where ppl relaised that to overcome they're diffrences they had to work whit eachother. (in simmple turn of events)

The similarities are quite clear.
And for me I can't see why we should get rid of the super highways systems whit putting in buffer systems..

Highways are gone so I travelled the extra jumps and still got stuck in Yulai.

You don't understand it do you..
You could create the same effect whit connecting more central systems like lum-new caldari.
And you whouldn't have to jump 10 more jumps to get to the same place.

You create the same effect whit unjunktion the central systems. Espesially Yulai.
The end result is that you just go around it.

Funny how most other games are writing code to allow faster travel between locations while CCP are furiously backtracking to make it more difficult, just so their servers can cope with the mess they created...

Smoking jacket? Do you got a cig. hold as well? Cool

I am happy that they finally are killing the highways off. This is just a start, the loyal anti-highway'ist need to keep up the pressure.

Other than the lag?
What was the problem whit the superhighway system?

Well.. I've said mine.
You all know how I feel about this.
So I'll leave it at that.

I've noticed that to cross into any empires, you need to go through the KEMERK system. This is likely to become the new Yulai... Rolling Eyes

And the fact that in some cases the jumps still cross whole stretches of space is still stupid, mostly evident in the caldari space to kemerk.

All in all i still think highways should be removed completely, and going through empires should involve crossing the border. But this is ok for the time being... but still, Kemerk is still very central. It should be a few more jumps through gallente space to get to or from Kemerk.
