A Challenge To All Carebears

Watch this video of null sec pvp and tell me you don't want to be involved.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O76_hgZ2BQM&feature=related

After seeing that, is there any way you can say, without lying, that you don't want to die for your space empire? I doubt it. Nullsec is the ultimate in player driven content, and once you get a taste of it you will never want to leave.

Instead of crunching on rocks and grinding missions you can be a soldier in an epic battle where empires are born and die, where your every action can make all the difference in the world.

Try it.

Too long, didn't watch. Ugh

EDIT: Also, I believe that would just be full of baseless claims, like all ads tends to be.

You do realise that when you're addressing Carebears you mean 70% of nullsec dweller Alt's too, right ?
Being a carebear does not mean you do not Pvp, that's falsehood spread by pubbies.

I don't even have to watch that to know I want to get back to 0.0, but to be frank, I don't have the nescary dedication at this time and I do not wish to be yet another member who doesn't show up at any CTAs like most alliances have right now.

Don't really feel it. The only things that make me want to be part of null are epic eve trailers and rooks & kings videos.

The early days of null sec (2003-2006ish) was much more fun than it is now. PVP just isn't what it used to be and now I prefer not to do it. I think in part this is due to the overly large alliances but thats just my opinion.

No it does not.

Listening to that and watching made me hate 0.0 even more. I like to do things on my own.

Although I would not mind joining Rooks and Kings....

Watching this video makes me want to tear out my teeth with pliers, actually. The true video should cover the whole op beginning with the hour long wait in station to undock, etc.

Im not a total carebear, I've made the occasional trip to low-sec to rat for funsies, that said I spend a lot of time missioning because im too poor isk-wise to afford to lose more than a few ships. Some people simply cant afford to buy new ships at the drop of a hat. PS who do you think makes my ships? We all know you don't have bots making ships for you for free. /sarc

If I could afford pvp i would but I earn **** isk and therefore have basically nothing.

Once they fix the target one ship and alpha it then move on, i'd jump to null in a heart beat.
PS **** blobbing, small gang is best.

Same here. I`ve been in null sec fights of all sizes and I do miss them... I just do not have the time to commit atm du to RL obligations.

Yeah, looks awesome....

I'd love to sit there watching little red x's while some nerd chants targets on Vent. You seriously think this is good gameplay?

Maybe it's compelling at the strategic level. How many players get to plan that bit? One? Five?

Personally, I'd rather play my own "eve extistence", where I call all the shots, intead of being a little drone in somebody else's game, but heck it's a sandbox, go ahead and do what you want to.

You know if 0.0 space was more than what you shown and with the right mentallity change of the 0.0 dwellers highsec would be. Almost empty except for the newplayers and the griefers

I do not agree with what you are saying , but i will defend to the death your right to say it...... Voltaire

I call this brilliant, award winning, gameplay.

It is the most emergent, complex, gameplay I've ever encountered in an MMO.

I can tell you from personal experience this isn't true.

Does it though, when there's 100 other guys also hitting F1?

Believe it or not, there are some people who play this game and think differently than you do. You're playing it right for you, they're playing it right for them. You may not think mining or missioning is fun, but there are people who genuinely enjoy these activities, not because they're missing out, but because it's how they choose to relax. I think people should give different types of gameplay a try, sure. However, some of us will decide that combat pvp isn't for us, and that doesn't make us "wrong".

Well, that's the beauty of eve, there's a cool gameplay option for everyone. Enjoy it while it lasts.

I do not get The Rush. Adrenaline leaves me feeling drained and sick. So no, I do not want to be part of that.

One of my friends that started playing, only was cause of the trailers on the website.

He quit and called it a frabication when finding out the trailers and gameplay are completely different.

Even though myself and 2 of his friends play also and told him, he wont return feeling "mislead".

Some people like it, some dont.
