The long-awaited nullsov dev blog and the attendant meta-storm have arrived.
As someone who hasn't lived in nullsec, it looks interesting. It seems to be very much set up so that a small group could grab a system somewhere that is not valued highly and try to hold onto it. In reality it looks like holding onto a constellation is more the minimum size though.
The real entertainment value is the comments thread where it appears that most people skimmed the dev-blog and then rushed to be the first to post their hatred of it... without actually reading or thinking or any of that stuff that might slow them down.
The question is how many days (or pages of the thread) is required before a substantial number of the posters have really given some thought to it. Yes, there will continue to be trolling posters who will continue to bring up misconstrued ideas (ex: "one interceptor/recon/covops with an Entosis Link will be able to reinforce a constellation single handed every night.") just to see everyone else sputter.
I do agree that if the design intent was to split alliances by timezone then they might have wanted to say that up front.
This will be interesting to watch. On a related note, GalMil took Heydelies last night in a rather short IHub bash after a week or so of fighting plexes back and forth...
