So the current meta is running 5+ accounts, using disposable scout alt accounts (15 min for the account with some free bots you can refit), hoarding everything, exploiting mechanics whenever possible, creating alt corps to cause havoc and not be traced back, and of course lets not forget setting up powerhouses no one can compete against already.
So obviously some things need to change here. As a new player to Perpetuum all of this is just off putting. I have to play 12+ hours a day with my two accounts to even keep up at the pace people are going if I want to actually matter. People already have 500k+ EP or more from early exploits. As much as it would be best to figure out all this crap, roll back the server, and start again obviously this isn't going to happen and what is done is done. If this many accounts are needed to support small corps with resource then the problem lies with resource extraction amounts. No one wants to spend all day mining away (well maybe those special people)
Limit accounts somehow
Remove Corp Markets as a whole
Double or triple mining amounts on Beta
Reduce NIC generation from missions (we can all agree this is just dumb right now)
Make one Beta island Assaults and below ONLY. No Mech or Heavy Mech can ever undock or teleport to there. 5x resource extraction multiplier
Make one Beta island Mech and above ONLY. 10x resource extraction multiplier.
Make islands worth fighting for by the time saved mining!
