Removing offline control towers for profit!

EVE Pos banner

Admittedly the for profit part of the title is something that remains on my wish list so far CCP Ytterbium has simply confirmed that we will be able to remove offline control towers in the near future.

CCP Ytterbium forum post pos removal

How far away this near future is we don’t know but it’s likely to be Crius and more likely to be Hyperion the release after due on the 23rd September this year.

What I’m hoping to see from this change is a way to remove a POS whilst at war without having to shoot it. Additionally or at least in a perfect world I’m really hoping that in the process of removal the POS isn’t destroyed allowing a new ‘POS salvager’ career to popup from the change with people actively hunting offline POS’s and putting in a wardec to profit from their removal.

If I was to hazard a guess I would guess that once Kronos and Crius are out the way it won’t be the last we see of the industry overhaul with some features that have long been discussed such as a complete overhaul of invention and this POS removal system being pencilled in right now as features for Hyperion. All of the ongoing discussion I’ve seen to date really point towards further improvements to industry which fits in nicely with the theme of building your own stargates and ensuring it’s a feature that the community respond well to really industry is the true foundations of EVE online and at the moment the future looks very hopeful indeed.
