    Initially, I was going with Galactic Oligarchy of Bittervets (GOB)

    But it has so many elements of Oligarchy, Aristocracy, Feudalism, Stratocracy, Socialism and even Kleptocracy.
    EVE empires are inherently Thalassocratic and for one so large to succeed, it needs to be very much consociational.

    So fuck it, lets just go for the gold.
    I present to you the:

    Federation of Aristocratic Republics' Consociational Empire

    If you really want to piss of CCP, you could always transfer sov to new alliances called Kugu-Blue and Kugu-Red, make sure global TZs are represented in each and declare a NIP with Kugu-Purple defending against anyone dumb enough to try to muscle in.

    This is the nuclear option, though and may very well cause Iceland to assplode and sink. You would be responsible for the deaths of dozens of people.

    Just expand RvB into a mega coalition, what could possibly go wrong?

    It would make for exciting Alliance Tournament marketing.

    Also, they won't be true freeports. I'm pretty sure the owners will discriminate between the cannon fodder they want and actual competent leetpvpers who they want as far away as possible.

    So the way I see the freeport thing actually working out is the smaller alliances who live in NPC space currently will stay there, the empire pubbies will stay there, and more previously inhabited regions will become barren wastelands of emptiness (which is the whole point, right?)
    It's a worthwhile experiment because it hasn't been done before on a regional scale. It might not work out at all, but I'm going to give it a whirl because fuck it.

    Our Riot Act policy (which we just announced today, formally) is that anyone in Delve who throws open their stations to give the freeport a try will be exempt from conquest. Those who refuse obviously will have to have their stations cracked open by force, but I'm serious about the need to have 'zones of cultivated pvp'.

    I suspect that a Freeport Delve will have more action than NPC 0.0 simply because of the wealth of the region as far as rats etc go. But I could well be proven wrong by events.

    Kudos for constructive use of Goon/CF boredom.

    Have you considered using a (goon) dummy alliance (ex. Delve Freeport Association) to give the whole thing an air of legitimacy? Goon generosity, while familiar to the CF is going to be seriously laughed at by the EVE public. Hell, you could spin it into an act of CSM generosity just by picking the name right and whipping up a clever pubbie attracting PR campaign.

    My biggest concern is that alliances that comply with the riot act will just use their stations to farm kills, basically driving off our test subjects.

    this is a good point, one of the problems you would/could have with enticing people out of NPC corp highsec life to this freeport space would be getting over the average highsec dwellers perception of goonswarm.

    Does the average empire dweller even know who the hell the goons are? Sure they have they deal regularly with The Orphanage and Suddenly Ninjas but Goons? I would imagine anyone who doesn't spend their days on forums and who haven't been recruitment scammed don't run into many goons often (that they know of).

    I think Mittens is trying to make a point about look what would have might perchance happened maybe if CCP made good on the initial Dominion feature list.

    not directly, but they would hear from their spacemates in the NPC corp channel about how goons are ruining the game/hackers/scammers/exploiters/rmt'ers/donges and or buttes, and using this well founded knowledge then pass it onto their other NPC spacemates. and so on it goes

    Recommend going with TSA. If you have an evil plan, you need to use the most evil name around. And nothing is more evil than the TSA.

    Plus it'd be amusing to talk about the rape of gates and hisec travel by the Transit Security Administration.


    I for one hail this bright new future for EVE:

    The 3rd Goon Empire, lead by The Enlightened Space King Mittani is a sight to behold. He reminds me of certain Prussian leader.

    Frederick William I became known as the "Great Elector" for his achievements in organizing the electorate, which he accomplished by establishing an absolute monarchy in Brandenburg-Prussia. Above all, he emphasized the importance of a powerful military to protect the state's disconnected territories, while the edicts of potsdam opened Brandenburg-Prussia for immigration of protestants refugees, and he established a bureaucracy to carry out state business efficiently.

    Mittani: Now is the time for lolrp.

    If this idea of taking over Null completely and then doing raids into High Sec is for real, you should also do it in character. I'm actually extremely curious about how the storyline people would deal with a fully united null sec that decided they wanted to take over empire. Think of when the Caldari took all of the contested space from the Gallente and it was a huge deal and canonized in the EVE storyline. Would the storyline people canonize a full out declaration of war on the empires by a united null sec?

    You should message the ISD and tell them that you are declaring yourself the "Galactic Emperor" and that the "former empire leaders" should start watching their backs. You have more firepower and more space than them combined and will be disrupting whatever you want in their space.

    I know, I know, :lolrp:, but this is an opportunity to seriously control not just the game mechanics, but the game history itself.

    I don't get this freeport idea much either in regards to attracting empire pilots. If empire pilots wanted to go to 0.0 they'd go to the already existing freeports which offer the bonus of missions, full -1.0, and never having a chance of being locked out, or if not wanting much chance of dying renting a nowhere system in a nowhere region. What exactly is the incentive for empire pilots to move to the new freeports over say,.. Stain, Curse, Venal?

    You attract the empire pilots by directing all PVP after conquering 0.0 into Empire through co-ordinated wardecs and making Empire generally unsafe due to increased suicide ganks. Empire dwellers no longer feel safe, see an opportunity to level the playing field profit-wise by moving to a fully upgraded 0.0 (or at least move towards lowsec).

    The whole idea and the thought process behind it is literally groupthink grasping at straws.

    Nothing is stopping you from fucking with high sec on large scale right now except for the fact that it's a dumb gimmick that would get boring in a week. Why can't goonNOOBS just admit that they have a fetish for sov warfare that rivals the pubbies they make fun of? Noobs would have no reason to exist without an ihub shoot.

    I kinda find it hard to believe, even with coordinated wardecs and suicide ganks, that Empire will be made less safe than a 0.0 region full of random people looking to gank farmers.

    I guess a good study point to look at would be when Hulkageddon(or w/e it's called) is going on, is there an influx of miners looking for a place to live in 0.0?

    Why don't we just call the entirety of Nullsec "Judea"? We can name a station the Third Temple of Solomon and then we can get both a Jew and an Armageddon reference in one to show that Nullsec is about making ISKies and the end is coming.

    What is this relevance you speak of?

    IF this does come to fruiton what would be the point in "freeports" when all of NPC nullsec will be invaded by worse pvpers than those that inhabit it now, hence creating space ripe for the farming both for isk and for kills.

    No doubt there will be delicious delicious retards thinking you can still make your tengu unscannable.

    Or, indeed, the last time Goonswarm set out to Jihad highsec. I think there may be one ISC post buried in the archives somewhere if you can be bothered to look. I can't.

    If you want to think about whether or not this will work consider:
    1) There are way more people living in high sec than in 0.0
    2) Goons have a short attention span and wont be able to concentrate on this for more than a couple of ooh shiny...

    The problem with this idea is it will only work for a short term. NIPS will always get broken, your vets will continue to retire due to boredom and eventually a force will rise up and make its play at 0.0. From my experience with DRF and NIPS, as soon as they smell blood in the water they will strike taking more territory (i cant blame em) and will tear your lolz pact to pieces.

    Honestly i also dont see how this will effect CCP in a real negative way. I dont think it will increase the drop rate and wont stop new people from joining cause the average player is a empire rat. The carebears will still get to play out in 0.0 as renters, supplies will get to empire and if there goes a shortage of moon goo, ccp will just have it spawn in missions or something.

    If your intention is to get at ccp, i dont think this will work. If you are doing it for the lolz and go for it.

    Yeah, but hulkageddon is like a two week event that only a small percentage of people playing eve participate in. Conquer all of 0.0, direct the majority of nullsec subcap pilots into empire for wars and let your massive supercap blob enforce the 0.0 domination.
