So yes, DPR has a new look. Thanks to Gabriel-BS from Deviant art for the really awesome art.
In related news i may be undertaking a little pilgrimage of my own to the EVE gate and the associated systems in that particularly deserted section of Genesis. It’ll be a pvp roam looking to catching unwary ratters inthat otherwise deserted section of losec.
I have to admit, that particular dead end section of losec interests me. Not just from a Fluff and back story perspective, but there’s certainly that. What’s remarkable about the EVE constellation is that it has to be one of the least active regions of K-space in the known EVE universe.
It’s also arguably the most worthless.
Not a single station is to be found anywhere in the EVE constellation. The New Eden system noticeably has no asteroid belts, moons and a single planet. There is some potential here- Gateway has 27 asteroid belts, and Promised land has 81 moons. But overall?
The place blows. Blows hard.
Let’s say that a fairly large highsec corp decided to carve out this section of losec space for itself. Which all things considered probably wouldn’t be very hard, since they’d really be no one to stop them. they’d even have a substantial advantage once established within the constellation, because of no NPC stations to dock at.
The problem? there is literally no reason for them to go there. None at all. It’s more dangerous, less profitable and more isolated than wormholing, and to add insult to injury, you need to pay the glorious Amarrian POS tax. You would make more money in highsec. You would be safer in highsec. You’d make more money in sov nullsec. You’d be safer there. And of course, same goes for Wormholing.
The only potential reason to take the EVE and Monalaz constellations of Genesis and set up your own little fiefdom is the ability to mine and refine losec minerals with NPC station refinery rates. And that’s a terrible way to go about it.
Otherwise- the only thing owning that section of space is the bragging rights owning that section of space imparts. Which in the case of the constellations of EVE and Monalaz, is infinitesimal.
CCP I know you’re got Something planned for Losec up your sleeve. You must have. We’re been yelling at you about it for years and years now. Regions of losec like the EVE constellation show exactly how out of date the entire thing is.
