Nullsec space has always been 'open season' for players in EVE Online but the way things change hands is shifting with the 'final part' of the Aegis update from. A video explains the newly crowned sovereignty system.
It's a "much more dynamic" way for players to battle for territory, and "offers more opportunities" for smaller fish to play larger roles in attack or defence.
"It offers more opportunities for small gangs of pilots to make a difference in the attack or defense of a solar system, spreads conflicts across constellations, and encourages the use of space by inhabitants instead of leaving it as a no-man’s land between superpowers," they say.
"With this new, multiple-capture-point system, the possibilities for fresh tactics, changes in the ship-fitting metagame, diplomatic shenanigans, and the likely rise of wholly new emergent careers for players are at an all-time high. The battlefields of EVE will likely be littered with exploded ships as players adjust to the tactical demands of a new system."
"As always, those who fail to adapt in New Eden are likely to either perish outright or accept temporary losses while they bolster their forces or forge new diplomatic ties. Those who evolve their gameplay will reap the benefits during this time of upheaval."
