The single most largest mistake CCP is making with regards to Faction War, is presuming to think that Faction War should be about taking space.
Faction War is not about taking space. Faction War is about war --battles, pvp, and action.
Only when CCP understands this will they be able to truly focus on changes that could make Faction War great.
Forcing space-taking game mechanics on Faction War pilots is like telling a kid in a sandbox that he can only build castles.
