Initial Observations

I haven’t been in-game too much but I’ve noticed a few things about Faction Warfare that have amused me in the realm of “Unintended Consequences”

The reaction of incoming players to the possibility of losing their stuff to losing the system has largely been “Well fine we’ll base in hisec”

Defensive plexing is necessary to keep control of systems, but doesn’t give you any notable benefit.  No LP, just a drop in the contested status of the system.   Makes it harder to lose your LP rewards I guess.

Faction Police seem to be able to catch a freighter on a good day.  Anything smaller blows by them.  Seriously have you seen Loren Galen’s killboard?

PvP is of course as exciting as ever.  cricket… cricket… I need to get on and find a fleet that’s going to pick a fight.

Also about to pick up recruiting.  Warning any spies we discover in corp will be jettisoned in a can outside Jita 4-4 with the self-destruct disabled and Gilbert Gottfried reading local.

I’m using it every time I can

  1. There is one sometimes overlooked benefit to de-plexing: you get a standings increase with your militia (e.g. FDU – Gallente) which leads to promotions and a Faction standings increase. So de-plexing is a good way for newer players to quickly increase there standings and get a jump clone.

  2. I don’t get the reference to Loren Galen’s killboard. On both BattleClinic ( and EvE Kill ( he has 0 kills and 1 loss (Rifter). Does he only haul and that’s the point? Those of us outside of FW don’t know all the capsuleer names and what they do, sorry. 😉
