Shin_getter over at Failheap puts an interesting spin on a problem that we all see:
Modifying the game is tricky when most of the complains involves OTHER PEOPLE's experiences. Non-incursion runners whine about incursion income. Subcap pilots whine about supercapital pilots. NPC null/WH/small gang folks whine about the lack of small gang in sov blob space. Non-NC whine about NC bridge network. Non-drake pilots whine about drake fleets. Pirates whine about easy logistics done by a completely different type of players. Blob fleets whine about how they can't get into a wormhole (lol CSM). Careless highsec guys complain about suicide gankers. Miners complain about dronelanders. Carebears complain about AFK cloakers.....It's an interesting perspective, and one that I for one hadn't thought about before! That said, it's not exactly a silver bullet. Botters certainly aren't going to fix the issues with botting, after all...
Fixing the game is infinitely easier if players are trying to fix their own experiences as opposed to "zomg those "insert group" is so terribad and exploiting the shitz out of everything and should die/nerf/ban/nuke/dd/etc."
Don't have much more to say about this one, other than I thought the perspective was interesting. The question is, do I believe it enough to stop talking about those few things in EVE that I haven't done, such as volleying a dictor in a Titan, for instance? That, I'm not so sure about. ;-) After all, I've been on the receiving end of such things, so that doesn't make me an entirely disinterested party.
