10 to 20 minutes to kill a retriever? I'm sorry. Are you getting ganked by rats while you're afk? Because Concord would splatter any aggressors within the first minute or so.

Unless of course...you got can flipped like a moron. In which case: LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL


WoW is right over there my friend >

It's not even being blown up that's annoying or loosing a ship, it's cheap to replace, but the time wasted in getting blown up (obviously you get webbed and then it takes them 10-20 minutes to destroy a retriever, because they are inept) and wasted in replacing it is really turning me of this game (aside from the fact, that it takes months before you can fly any halfway decent ship).

So, anybody can tell me either way, is there a setting or something, where I can stop those morons? If not, is it actually the intention of this game to do this? If so, I'm out of here, I have to deal with enough morons in real life, and I couldn't be bothered to do so and call it "entertainment". There is other better games out there, some are even free. To think I was even considering getting a second account on the current special offer - uugh.


I would like to point out something to my fellow posters here... the 10-20 minute part might actually be the belt rats killing him and not actual players.

There is no killmail losses on eve-kill or BC.

The op is either a troll... or a Moron, I would go with moron.


This ^

For the poetic justice of it.

OP comes in calling Eve players morons, turns out highsec belt rats are killing him, not other players. Just too perfect, too perfect.

I hear Farmville is really cut throat and can get so intense it's like a knife fight in a phone booth.

Don't be silly. This is the '10s — there are no phone booths any more.
It's more like a knife fight via cell phone.

All great advise in some way.

For those who wondered about the kill. It was a badger something, he blackmailed me first, 200m or pop, not that I would have the chat open and see that. Then he must have locked me and through the autolock got my drones firing at him I guess, I was reading stuff at the time. Mindyou, I would expect the concord to shoot me then, which didn't happen either. By the time I switched sessions, he had my shield down pretty much, but it still took ages for him to finish the job.

Now, I don't know nor do I care, if blackmailing is allowed or not by CCP, I was told this game was fun, but if I have to deal with the same stuff and stupidity as in real life, that's not what I call fun. There's more fun in watching paint try on a wet day! Mind you, I'm apparently not the only one. I remember 5-6 years ago there were several hundred thousend players in EVE, with over 100k online most times. All I saw now was 10-20k, may be 40k on weekends, I was a bit taken aback by that.

Even my battle iteron will kill a retriver in less than 5 minutes. Given that I cannot find any KM for the OP I'm going with troll alt.

Actually its not about a good fight or a fight at all its about what they call tear extraction, you are actually lucky they went ahead and blew you up instead of just holding you there indefinitely pointed and webbed taunting you in local and calling you names. Unfortunately a lot of socially disadvantaged psychopaths playing eve are into that sort of thing. If you want to build an industrial empire and this game does have fine mechanics to do that you unfortunately need to go be a Null-sec pet under the protection of a large power block surrounded by several system of blues to do it unharassed. The logistics can be harder but hey you're an industrialist, train jump freighters.

You have to start Eve in 'safe mode' and equip a module called an 'invulnerability field'

This turns PvP off.

Find and join a decent corp/alliance like possibley eve uni, they'll teach you a lot of things plus iirc they also have nullsec bases of operations or run ops in LS/null etc and tbt these days miners are actually safer overall in nullsec than HS.
they do however have a bit of a wait in being accepted, but stick with it and get into eve uni.

http://www.eveuniversity.org

also have a chat to Chribba, probley one of the biggest carebears/miners going in eve bar maybe halada (though think hal's account is currently inactive)

here's the community spotlight done on Chribba:

Oh and almost every aspect of Eve is PvP, so you've picked the wrong game.

Chribba has a mining dreadnaught in 1.0 sec space, how many gank battleships do you think it would take to kill him before a concord response?

Well, so much for friends singing the praises of Eve back then, I was just watching at the time. Then there never were something like 100k+ players either I guess. Damn that spin.

I highlighted the parts that contradict each other for you, just incase you plan to make an attempt at lying again.
