No idea what to title this rambling as.

In a perfect EVE, I would love to see something done about FW. It has the potential to be something so spectacular but it's just left to die a slow death while we get SUPER PRETTY FACES to play with.

Okay, granted, I do enjoy emoing Shalee up from time to time, playing with hair colors, yada yada. But that's because I can, and in a perfect world I wouldn't give two fucks about the picture. I'd rather have improvements to gameplay.

I don't want to complain, because I still enjoy the game very much. I just wonder why they bother with things and then leave them to rot.

Secondly. I wish there were some kind of mechanic that enabled people to have smaller fights without the threat of being blobbed to hell. FW is supposed to help with that some, with the plexes allowing only certain sized ships.

But, I think they can do better. They could make some kind of site that would allow only 2 ships or 4 ships of a certain size. Once the requirements were met, the accel gate would shut down. That way players could have guaranteed 1 v 1 or small fights.

I know that part of EVE is the blob, it is unavoidable. And if you have X amount of pilots online who want in your fleet, then thats what you fly with, and hope that the other side can fleet up to match you.

I attempted to roam the other night with just 2 others, we were spread out among a few systems poking around, looking for a fight. I found a blob instead. Oh well, that was a great ten minutes. Back to ship spinning and rp.


  1. Your idea would probably appeal to a lot of people, but it's strikingly similar to "arena" PvP. The cry of "WoW in space!" would be deafening.

  2. I honestly don't think so. I can't think of one pvper who doesn't bitch about being blobbed.

  3. They bitch about being blobbed, but you never hear them bitching when they are the blob.

    In related news, if you're looking for some PvP against relatively small forces, I know a corp that's been griefing miners in the Tash-Murkon region. Perhaps KotMC would like to lay a beating on them.

  4. I try not to bitch about being blobbed. I probably bitch more about fleets about evenly matched running away and coming back heavier and more ships more than anything, I guess...

    I also bitch about being the blob and get called elitist when I won't let anymore people in a fleet 'cause I don't want it to be a blob. Sigh.

    BTW, I was really annoyed that we blobbed you that night. We weren't looking for you and had made the mistake of taking pity on all those x's wailing in the wilderness.

  5. Speaking of being blobbed:
