I like how my Delve goes...too bad the Southern bloc didn't engaged our PL/TEST fleet today while we were outnumbers 3 to 1. :(

Well not tellingnames but when you sell SC's and Titans to your enemies you're digging a little bit your grave, but hey, it's another matter.

If null is that boring it's probably because it's badly designed?

Look at me, agreeing with a goon. But yeah. This.

this thread makes me want to quit the game... is there seriously no imagination in this community beyond ganking? and endless sprawl of high rescource space and the only fun thing to do there is gank people? this is extremely discouraging.

Is 0.0 the new safe space where it's great for miners and industrials but it's driven all the PvP players out? Is ganking low skill (game or RL), easy targets what they now think a challenge is or did I think CAOD got boring too soon and if I went back and read it again I'd discover a wealth of fantastical warriors' tales of bravery and heroic deeds? No? Oh, guess they're just bored of 0.0 then.

Discuss...



1) Why do the 'so called large 0.0 alliances' (I'll assume that is a way to say goons) seem so intent on shooting miners, mission runners and industrialists in high sec?

Because of the vitriolic, irrational, over the top responses. Seriously, read some of the **** you post, no wonder they keep doing it.

2) Has 0.0 changed so much with the loss of BOB and the NC that there are no large scale 0.0 wars anymore?

No, if anything 0.0 is more volatile now then ever before, with smaller alliances and shifting coalitions becoming more the norm rather than the exception. If you are looking to pvp in nullsec, there are endless opportunities.

3) Is 0.0 the new safe space where it's great for miners and industrials but it's driven all the PvP players out?

0.0 Is fairly safe for experienced players, but no safer than it was in the past, so i don't see why any current mechanics would be 'forcing people out.

4) Is ganking low skill (game or RL), easy targets what they now think a challenge is or did I think CAOD got boring too soon and if I went back and read it again I'd discover a wealth of fantastical warriors' tales of bravery and heroic deeds?

Is that english? If you are looking for stories about nullsec fights, there are other places to read those battle reports. However, the vast majority of fights in nulllsec are not thread worthy, neither side feels strong enough about it to make a thread just to complain. However, people who lose hulks very often feel the need to complain loudly and frequently, so there are tons of whine threads.

Having dabbled in nearly everything EvE has to offer, I find the entire game boring now.

I unsubbed, but later came back because the thing I missed and enjoyed the most was the forum trolling. $15 per month to post on these forums? Sure.

Our leadership is actually pretty embarrassed that there isn't a single goon in the top 5 on the killboards.

Also nullsec seems pretty fun still? There's a Fleet Commander/Skirmish Commander-only roam planned, which I'm looking forward. I can't wait to see how herding the cat herders goes.

Sounds like some of your leadership has been infected by the virus that is leetpvp and must be purged.

That's just...entirely too much effort for an afk cloak alt.

Cloaking 1, any frigate, prototype cloaking device. Harvest.

Well it is boring, at least now. If the Goon/Test offensive ever gets going, it will become more interesting real quick. I hope it happens, as I'm sure many Goon/Test hopes for the same. Epic battles is what 0.0 is all about, not so much lately. But I got faith in my Goons. If that doesn't happen, maybe something else, who knows. Many of the PVP alliances have cut goon a NIP, mostly due to the numbers game, not enough, Goon and Test are pretty big

0.0 is not boring.

Without nullsec we would not have all these great rage threads.

Such as?

NCdot, Ev0ke and PL aren't "many of the PvP alliances"

npc alts have no opinions worth consideration
