What if CCP took this one step further by introducing a type of stable wormhole. These wormholes would be relatively rare, and would lead between all ‘known’ areas of space. (highsec, lowsec, and null) Instead of being destabilized by mass passing through them, these wormholes would last for a random period of time—from days to weeks.
- Pilots who would rarely interact with each other due to distance, could suddenly become temporary neighbors. This could lead to some interesting interactions –new wars, and new friendships.
- Traders could use these ‘temporary gates’ as secret trade routes. And a new breed of piracy could emerge where pilots hunt down these secret routes for the purpose of disrupting this trade.
- Areas of space considered to be ‘dead ends’ could suddenly become main routes of travel temporarily. And systems thought of as being relatively safe due to their location and/or remoteness, could see some new action if they are connected to more dangerous places.
What if tomorrow, your home system suddenly led to a high-sec system three jumps from Jita? Or a low-sec system where an active, bloody war is currently going on? Or right into the middle of someone’s null-sec ratting space?
