Yeah, I am going to just have to stop you right about there.
This isn’t the real would, and line of sight is a quality of life thing. Not everyone is going to be hardcore players, people are going to need help. Line of sight also helps with a whole host of logistics issues. If this were the real world we would have people sitting at listening posts for months just to hear a snippet of information that may help.
Furthermore I have screen shots. I can just screen shot and give to someone, this mechanics, again, is a quality of life thing. Also, there will be groups that use third party programs to map systems, people, and movements.
Timely and accurate intelligence in a game like this is going to be cloaking into a system and reporting what you see, talking to another player and gleaning information, spies in guilds, etc.
Also, LoS is not going to make individual players irrelevant, I mean that is honestly ridiculous. Solo players are solo players. There is a solo player right now, that rivals some of the smaller alliances, and medium alliances, by himself.
I also want to say that LoS by no means stops people from being leaders, just because you have LoS doesn’t mean you have any idea what to send, what might be needed, logistics, who has what where. Coordination is only helped by LoS, it isn’t the end all be all. We have coordinated massive battles so far using third party programs and screen shots. LoS, again, would only be a quality of life adjustment. Which they should do.
