As always, there’s not any specific information to share due to the confidentiality of the discussions.
Here are the two most recent CSM Meetings:
April 17th, 2020
Review of upcoming CSM election plan
Extended discussion of the EVE ecosystem
April 24th, 2020
Continued discussion of the EVE ecosystem
One of the least helpful CSM updates, but know that a lot is being discussed about how ISK moves in and out of the game.
The changes to structures have been announced with the Forsaken Fortress update.
It’s not a perfect solution, but it’s a good compromise in terms of reducing structure spam, managing development time, and creating reward for destruction. Solutions like this take a while to craft and refine, but I’m hopefully this a good step forward for structures in space.
Yes, there are some issues, like a few people losing things while they are long term AFK from the game. These are compromises needed to try to keep moving forward. Rather than being paralyzed by trying to solve for every possible situation, the changes are a good step forward that will give players new things to do.
Players are good at looking for the holes in new changes, and they are going to find some. In a game as complex as EVE Online, it’s impossible to make perfect solutions. Going forward, there will be more changes that are compromises between the “perfect solution” and doing nothing. Prepare yourself.
Back to abandoned structures, logistics folk in New Eden are probably doing a lot of planning about what to scoop, fuel, or simply ignore.
Personally, I’ve got some fueling to do, but look forward to some interesting explosions and scams…
