So, the DevBlog finally dropped.
CCP is currently going to hold a Q&A to give further information on the coming changes. They are asking for questions on the EVE Online Discord.
@Phantomite I would strongly advise, if you are really worried about the potential grip big entities could have over the coming system (as I am, to be honest), that you submit the question for them to answer, your name will probably have more weight than mine.
The reason only a small number of people do it is because of the committment of time and effort, with getting into the space and being ready to fight in very bling ships.
For FW, the opportunity here is for those barriers to be lowered. (along with, I hope, the rewards to be more appropriate)
Such content in FW also has the opportunity to deliberately block the "bling" requirement by using ship and module limitations.
Eh that remains to be seen. As far as I can tell Pochven works because it has heavy restrictions and only has a small group of interested players active in it. Replicating similar functionality in lowsec seems fairly complicated and I very much doubt CCP would be capable of striking the right balance there.
