As announced on July 5th, in 48 hours, at downtime on Friday, July 12, local chat across all nullsec space will be switched over to delayed mode. This means that it will behave as local chat in wormhole space, with pilots only appearing in the local population listing should they choose to post messages.

When this change comes into effect, pilots will not appear in the local population listing or population count unless they choose to make themselves known by posting a message in local chat.

The duration of this blackout is undetermined, and we’ll be monitoring what effect this has on the cluster.

If you’d like to discuss this announcement, feel free to do so in the comments thread here.

    if you dislike this thing, unsubscribe omega.
    if this thing continues, stop playing.

    nullsec is not w-space, and now living in it will be even harder.

    It’s now just wormhole space, but with maps and the ability to jump titans and supers around.
    CCP has downs.

    As an old returning SOLO player i’m kinda happy.
    It will be easier for me to just go “hit’n’run” some ratting players.

      CCP is clearly hoping to lure you back because you pay actual money to play the game unlike most of the nullsec crowd. Sounds like maybe their strategy is working.

        People still pay real cash to buy plex and then sell on market so they can generate in game isk – even if a player can play all of eve and use in game isk to buy plex, someone else still paid real cash to get the plex in the first place.

      Why would someone be out ratting if they can’t see anyone coming for them unless they were under an umbrella?

    Yes, yes, finally! I love it! I don’t have a lot of time to play now, but I am going to subscribe both of my accounts again, if only to show support for this move. Excellent – should have been done a long time ago!

    So this just made goons even bigger and more powerfull. Players spend months skilling pilots and earning the isk to get into a super or rorq or some other cool near-end-game ship they have always wanted, and everyone needs a solid isk generator so they can buy combat ships or exploring stuff – can’t shoot red crosses or mine rocks every day, but need isk to pay for the fun parts of the game – so now will you risk your super or rorq if you don’t have a reliable and organized umbrella to come save you or an intel source to help you. Recruitment is open with many, many goons corps

    It is unfortunate I can’t remember my Eve passwords anymore and lost my old email account associated with Eve. I think I would re-subscribe just to inflict as much damage as I could against the RMT’ers, and laugh.

    If they implemented this 5 years ago nulls sec would be a different beast. With the newer fortress the game is lost. But it just shows the botters lost their influence now, hope it’s not too late for the game.
