Welcome to the twenty-fifth installment of the EVE Blog Banter, the monthly EVE Online blogging extravaganza created by CrazyKinux. The EVE Blog Banter involves an enthusiastic group of gaming bloggers, a common topic within the realm of EVE Online, and a week or so to post articles pertaining to the said topic. The resulting articles can either be short or quite extensive, either funny or dead serious, but are always a great fun to read! Any questions about the EVE Blog Banter should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Check for other EVE Blog Banter articles at the bottom of this post!
This month’s topic comes to us from @Tetraetc – “Tetra’s EVE Blog” – who asks: “Have Alliances and the sovereignty system limited the amount of PVP and RP potential in Null sec? Imagine a Null Sec where anyone could build outposts wherever. Would the reduction of the alliance game mechanic, and the removal of the sovereignty game mechanics (or the modifcation of it from Alliance level to Corp level for that matter) force more PVP into Null sec, or would giant power blocs like the NC still form themselves?”
I’ve always believed that New Eden should be a living, breathing, dynamic universe, unique in experience each and every day. There should be changes in politics, economy, sovereignty, and other social mechanisms just like the real world.
Jump Bridge changes, sovereignty changes, nullsec corridors, smaller alliance/corporation wars to establish and maintain footholds in the least friendly regions of New Eden? Sounds good to me.
It should take alliances more effort to control a smaller amount of space. There should not be large power blocs able to control most of the outer regions. Every corp/alliance should have the ability to inflict actual causality if they are coordinated and capable.
Having said that, the larger alliance will always have more dedicated people. Larger alliances will have more resources to pool. Inevitably this means larger alliances will control larger amounts of space.
In this way, it’s much like terrestrial warfare. The larger the army, the larger the population, the larger the money pool, the more physical space they cover.
