    So basically just go to a system that you want to undermine, then block every combat ship that's pledged to the defending power.
    Get your shieldless T9 out and go to a system that you want to fortify. Block every enemy-pledged player that has the potential to stop you.

    10/10 gameplay!

    I really don't think solo only players take up 1/3 of the player base you're only assuming this without stats and figures.
    Most people I know are in PG or open.
    The fact PP is supposed to encourage PvP means that you lose out.
    You chose solitude don't complain about it.
    FDeV should not nerf features for you guys that would improve the gane for everyone else.
    Sorry mate you're going to have to suck it up.

    Blocking doesn't really work so you'll get a fairly nasty surprise.

    It works pretty well for me. I’ve learned a few fun tricks with it, too (not that I’ll be telling any of you what they are, of course).

    According to a poll, solo/PG players make up about 51% of the playerbase. Also, according to another poll on Reddit which had over 12,000 participants, only 12% of players participate in PvP.

    I don’t think 12% qualifies as “everyone else” exactly.

    There has been no "bonus" for running the risk of flying in Open vs playing it safe in Solo/PG. Hell the EGU folks have run rampant in PG with their Grom power and without being able to face them directly using piloting skill (blockades etc), its a numbers game, which they win.
    Dude, I’ve got bad news for you ... Elite is a numbers game. It’s always been a numbers game! Trading (profit/loss), Exploration (collect data), missions (deliver X, kill X, find X), Engineers (collect X, Y and Z, “roll” upgrades) ... I could go on ... the fact that you can shoot other ships (NPCs or players) is almost a “happy accident” ...

    This is where ED falls down- its the gap between moving those numbers that needs filling. Solo and PG simply entrench the numbers game within Powerplay, while action, teamwork and excitement enrich it.

    In your opinion ... whilst others prefer / are happy with the “Risk style” strategy / numbers game.

    I can see both side ... I think there need to be PP PvP CZs in Open to satisfy the player-on-player action.
