So here we are. . . Ascending to freEve status. I happened to make a new toon to run through the NPE just to see what they changed and it's pretty cool. There are a *ton* of newbros out there flying around blindly.
I considered how this would impact New Order since the newbros are beginning their new life in the saviors space.
I am proposing a new program to help Newbros become compliant sooner.
After running through the entire NPE I had just over 1 million isk. A bit of a stretch from the (very fair) 10 million required for the mining permit.
How about issuing a temporary permit to newbros for 1 million isk? This gets them compliant long enough to learn the ropes and about the dangers of bot aspirancy and gives them some time to get the other 9 million together.
I feel early influence of newbros will go a long way to securing high sec in the future.
I was not proposing changing the cost of the mining permit simply offering another level good for something like 30 days for genuinely new newbros.
Since I posted this I have finished running through all of the career agents and had 8.5 million. I imagine most newbros are running through them all as well so should be able to purchase a permit very shortly after for the 10m Isk.
I do plan on especially ganking afk mining ventures in the career agent space as they are everywhere there.
I am curious what others thoughts are to the newbro phenomenon, it's impact on high-sec, and New Order, etc.
