Alliances are bad? - 25th Blog Banter

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 crazykinux@gmail.com. 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 am thirsty. I drink wanter.

Anyway. Time to right some stuff that I think about the question that I wrote.

1 thing that I should have mentioned in the question. But thats life... When I talk about say the removal of alliances and such. I also mean the removal of anything to do with alliances. IE... the entire sov system as we know it today. A) No more jump bridges. B) No more TCU's etc etc.

An immediate Pro to this that just came to mind. No more apparently boring Sov warfare.

Either way. I must say that No i dont agree with the opinions stated in the question. Post. Thing i sent to CK. I do enjoy alliances. I love them. I say that they should be kept.

Personally... One of the coolest things about Eve is the Sov system and the alliance system. When you bring up your map. And look at null sec, turn on tiles, with  sov change turned off cause that just starts confusing me.

And looking at the swathes of colour. And know that out there. Are THOUSANDs of players. And, that... They FOUGHT for those systems. Which I think is pretty cool.

I dont really think that the alliance system Limits PVP in ANYWAY shape and form. You can still shoot alliance mates. Or blues. Or Reds. Or the 3 day old noob flying to eve gate. Whatever. Nothing is stopping you from shooting anyone. In Null sec, Low sec, K-Space, High space.

Imagining a null sec where outposts could be built anywhere! No need for sov!

Wait... Outposts need alliances. Crap. No more outposts! (but seriously that would be hell)   Also. I just plugged my new Logitech G110 keyboard in. I happned to buy a new Logitech Wireless mouse (not in the G series... but I dont particularly feel the need for a G mouse. I also bought a new headset. Which is AWESOME. Logitech G35. Very nice. And I must say I like how this keyboard feels typing lol.

Anyway.Back on topic. What was my final point again? Oh thats right... Powerblocs.
Yes, the probably would form. So long as we have the option to add a contact with standings, Powerblocs and Coalitions WILL form. Live with it. :)
