This. Go to 0.0 if you don't want guns. That's one of the distinctions.

TBH, I have always believed that gate guns should be weaker, the lower the sec status of the system. I've also believed that gate guns should have more difficulty hitting smaller targets, but I've been known to be wrong before...

Guns need to be better! Folks can already sit on a gate with no worry from the guns. Pirating in low sec should be in system, not with gate camps. If gate camps are your thing, move to the badlands and get your self some bubbles!

My only problem with the guns is it discriminates against smaller ships. It really accomplishes nothing else. I don't mind there being a penalty system for low sec piracy, but it would be nice if you could fly a frig, or a mothership and get penalized the same way.

Sentrys dont really help people against pirates.
Boost up a HIC and a Huginn and they work better then 2 interceptors at catching stuff on gate.

The only time sentrys make a real differense is when pirates meets anti pirates, then they work as a excuse not to fight.

Is this more of your "constructive criticism", Tank CEO? I don't see how one line whines are constructive criticism or helps anything.

You haven't played EVE in 2 years so you have no clue to how the game is actually played so why don't you stfu.

Other than making your life easier, why exactly would you want them to be removed?

It causes carebears to think they are "safe" when entering lowsec.

Aye,

Remove Gate Guns from low-sec.
Take Concords Battleships back, they did fine with just cruisers and frigs.
and while you're at it put the Arkonor & Spodumain back in low sec too!

and since we're rolling back the clock, I'd like to personally request the Probe get its 3rd low slot back - like nerfing the minmatar mining frig was really necessary... Shocked

It would give pirates more options than simply blowing you up?

I'm not a pirate, but I think things worked better when it wasn't simply kill or don't bother. Now it's just gank and loot. And who really enjoys that on either side?

Yeah first ransoming you and then blowing you up.

I am in favour of removing gateguns on one condition: All the poor piwates stop whining about people staying in high sec. Since that will never happen because they want easy targets, i vote for changing sentry guns in some way that perma tanking them in a gang becomes much harder. Less gatecamps = more people in low sec = more targets for piwates. It just means they need to do more than sit on a gate and shoot on every hauler coming through...

Sentries whose damage tails off from 0.4 (logistics or heavy tank required) to 0.1 (can tank in a reasonable T2 ship or tanked T1) make the most sense. At the moment any old looser can sit on a gate in a semi-tanked ship and call themselves a pirate. YARRRR!!

Form a game point of view, it would be much better if the gate guns were beefed up several magnitudes (ie. able of killing capitals).

Since low-sec is supposed to be between high-sec and 0.0 in danger, gate and station guns should make gates and stations 'safe' areas in 0.0, but once people went to actually DO something (mine/rat/explore/mission), they should be vulnerable.

This would remove all the pirate wannabes, and reserve low-sec pirating for the true pirates who knows how to hunt down and kill their prey.

It would ALSO increase the number of prey. One of the reason there isn't many people to hunt in low-sec is that people KNOW it's much more dangerous than 0.0. If it was safe to travel, more people would be doing stuff there. Particularly missioning/exploration would become much more attractive.

With this solution, low-sec would be at its natural place between high-sec and 0.0.

EDIT: I don't have any personal interest in the matter. I don't frequent low-sec at all and have no real interest in doing so. 0.0 is much more fun...
