Those of us that live in a wormhole are used to being left out by CCP or taken up the ass when it comes to people living in other parts of the EvE online universe.
We’re used to it, it’s been like that ever since people figured out that they could live in wormholes. But today truly is a dark day.
The people at CCP released a blog post concerning their newest addition to bending wormholers over a table and taking them up the ass without any lube.
If you’re not quite well versed with wormholes, it’s the bit where they talk about HIC changes.
When you live in a wormhole you have a one or two static connections, in order to close this one goes out to “roll” a hole. You know their approximate mass and you use a few battleships to close it. From time to time the battleships don’t cut it and the hole goes in a critical state.
Being critical means that it’s mass is less than 10% of it’s total mass. Meaning that it could be as high as 100m or as low as the mass of a capsule.
The good people living in wormholes figured out that in order to roll it faster, you could put a few bubbles on a HIC, activate them, which makes your mass less than that of a capsule, and then jump back inside their home using a prop mode. Usually closing the hole right behind them.
Not having this kind of thing to close a wormhole would make it hard for people living in them to find new content.
BUT! CCP in their current state doesn’t care one bit about the wormhole community.
Unfortunately, wormholers will be unwilling collateral damage, as they often are, due to the incredible usefulness of HICs for rolling holes. We may address this with a specific mass manipulation module at some point in the future but want to move forward on fixing this broken behavior as fast as possible.
Translation: “We know you guys use and kind of need this for your playstyle but sucks to be you”
It’s a damn shame really, a lot of people are already commenting on reddit about all of this. I’m curious to what will happen.
But I doubt anything good will come out of it.
The fact that almost the whole CSM consists of Goons and nobody that actually lives in a wormhole isn’t that great… Who would have thought..
