My last lengthy post has been eaten, and it's too late to start again. Drink the tears, troll away. Whatever.
Thanks eve forums for eating my post. Try having a fair fight when you've got GCC and people are playing gate and station games. There are so many gangs in low sec that only engage whn they've got gate/ station aggression on their side, if you try to get people to fight away from those they often refuse. We all know the corps who just play dock games. Most of my corp and I are flashy red, there is no penalty for shooting us near a station or gate, and yet so many gangs just play the yellow box games so they have gate / station guns on their side. Anyway 3am, bedtime, good night imaginary tear drinkers and trollers.

Piracy is one of the funnest(?) lives in eve, it's small gang PVP at its finest and yet we are the outcasts of eve, punished from all sides and have to put up with poor under stocked / over- priced markets at the same time.


You honestly expect CONCORD and players you prey upon to praise you for what you do? Seriously?

Give piracy a break.
No GCC for pirates, no gun aggression within home systems / constellations, bonus to market buying / contract accepting skills for those with -5 or less sec status, or something to help us spend our ill-gotten gains.
Give us something, anything.


No.


Since the forum just ate my 4000 letter post...heres the short version:

A) The 15minute timer punishes the lone wolf in the small ship worse than the stereotype ganker/camper you're potraying by your remarks, where most of the time the timer/gcc is ignored , and B) It does not help the victim at all.

And another point, virtually all other professions in eve have a game mechanic to support their lifestyle, the 0.0 empire builder with titans and logistical possibilities and conquerable stations, the empire mission runner with missions, the explorer with exploration sites, the roleplayer with faction warfare mechanics etc..

In the last 4 years all that has changed in lowsec is the occasional 650k Battleship rats and the inclusion of incredibly poor anomalies...YEEEHAW! I want a black market, a racketeering station, i want to take over the helpless commerce stations littered around lowsec just as much as the FW guy wants to blow up the opposing side for great rewards.

Also, faction war territories ONLY spawn FW anomalies, you won't find serpentis dens in Gallente lowsec fw zones...is this a bug or feature?

Still enjoy my life as a pirate, always has always will, but the fact is that lowsec has reamined unchanged virtually the last 4 years since all other expansions have brought new stuff and things to do for the empire guy / roleplayer and the 0.0 empire builder.


Pirating is working, in eve your supported fine to do it. Hell, you can pirate in highsec as well using game mechanics (have a alt in orca supply your ganker with destroyers and blow up exhumers worth hundreds of millions)

As to if things are not supported, or how to actualy improve things, like a 'black market' or a racketering station, could you explain what the damnation those are, or would be in a player driven game and economy. less vague ideas, and whine.

It's a lack of scanning skills, or the lack of scanning at all, FW low does hold those anomalies.

Yes ganking industrials is PVP at it's finest


Robbing heavily armed warvessel with no loot is piracy?

Hi, I wouldn't shoot anyone for few hundred million with current isk value. It's just not worth of time.

Well i just tried all the systems in the Obray Constallation and i found no non-fw anomaly using my prober....? Tried Obray Constallation, Woenckee Constallation. Lots of Gallente stuff but no Serpentis port, hub den etc...Tried 4 systems not a single serpentis anomaly.

Got plenty of Serpentis DED plexes there, but no Anomalies (the ones you can find with the onboard scanner).

Making pirate scum suffer is a honorable business.

Continue doing so

Eve is about Capital ships, WiS, Boobs, PI and Isk!
