A conversation, led by the literary pugilist Poetic Stanziel and fiction champion Rhavas, has been rumbling in the bowels of the blogosphere for a few days now. Due to popular demand, for posterity and for the attentions of CCP Sisyphus of Team
Pulmonary Embolism Player Experience, I have been asked to envelop this discussion into a Blog Banter. The community has spoken and Drackarn has provided the following question:
“The local chat channel provides EVE players with an instant source of intel of who is in the system. With a quick glance you can tell who is in system and what your standings are to them. War targets, hated enemies, friends and corp mates all stand out clearly. Is this right? Should we have access to this intel for free with no work or effort? Should the Local chat channel even exist? Should normal space be more like wormhole space where the Local channel appears empty until someone speaks?”
So there you have it. Banter On.

As usual you might not like it 🙂

Mine was up yesterday…. not titled as a BB but hey, that's what you get for being slow on the draw.

My thoughts: Intel Gathering

Added complexity and possibly extra skills to train? Most changes proposed will just make it that much harder on new players. And that much easier on larger Null-bear alliances.
Count me in the 'leave it alone' camp.

Have made a handful of edits and added a link back here to my original post. Thanks for making this one official, Stan!

Argh. Stan. Another brain melter…

I'm late to the party but here's mine
Rixx Javix · 21/01/2013 at 14:26
I actually wrote a follow-up proposal:

Not a BB, but non the less
Cheradenine Harper · 21/01/2013 at 19:49
Somewhat paltry and whimsical but I got there in the end.
Stabs · 06/02/2013 at 23:38
Better late than never:
Be gentle, it's my first time.
Hope to see you at Vetomeet on Saturday.
