EVE Online devs have posted a new article talking about upcoming changes (i.e. nerfs) to the so-called deep space 'safe bookmarks' players are allowed to create. The changes are pretty important so keep reading:
On top of this, in Tyrannis we're (hopefully!) removing the last of the various bugs that allow deep safes to be created. This will place us firmly into a situation where the only way to access locations outside the system proper will be via "legacy" bookmarks. This creates a division between older "haves" and newer "have-nots": as a new player coming into the game, the only way you'd be able to reach points outside the system proper would be to acquire a bookmark from an older player.
This is not something we're comfortable with, and we've now reached the point where we have both a solution we're happy with and the resources available to implement it.
What we're doing
We're defining a "deep safe" for these purposes as any bookmark which is more than 10AU further from the local star than the furthest-out celestial object (planets or stargates).
- You will no longer be able to create bookmarks outside this range
- You will no longer be able to issue a "warp to" command to any location outside this range
- You will no longer be able to open a cynosural field at any location outside this range
