CCP should stop once and for all allowing others to steal from your can or steal from your wreak. All these griever are basically under the blessing of CCP to bully younger players out of the game. No other games give you such damaging emotion by allowing griever to take place.

How many people do we know grind hours for mission only to have the mission objective stolen to push you into PvP with other solo or entire fleet on standby in the moment to retaliated or recover the items. All that to beautified their kill-board. End of the day in a noob ship or PvE fit, you end up degrading your standing with the faction as well as the corporation because you can't complete your mission. Baring in mind, if you complete a mission, you only gain standing with the corp. We all know that faction standing is so much harder to gain.

CCP basically encourage that stealing is acceptable thus unorthodox activities is promoted. This kind of mindset will not only promote more and more griever inside the game but will also promotes to teenagers that working hard for something is not recommended, in fact it is poor stupidity......just go steal it. Being a griever is so much rewarding than grinding mission or grinding ore. In fact more and more people are creating trial accounts just for the purpose of performing act of grieving.

I am sure that plenty of people out that would disagree with me as they take great joy in making other people unpleasant and emotional. I do accept critics but I do hope CCP would eventually comment on this topic because this mechanic is driving new players away on top of their training mechanic.

We do know why DUST is F2P because if they gonna start DUST like what Eve online is, they would only get the same players of Eve Online to play DUST and never new players. Do not be confuse, I am not commenting on the looooooong training time, it the whole idea that Eve Online is promoting to the public...stealing is right and encourage. So the next time don't ever queue up for your movie tickets, just go top the queue and steal his wallet, he will pop out of the queue and you are 1 queue lesser to get your tickets Twisted How often do we see people in real life being vex and brainwash by the online game he is playing Roll

IS THIS WHAT CCP WANTS TO PROMOTE?????????? A simple Yes or No by CCP would even be nice QuestionQuestionQuestionQuestionQuestionBear

I agree. High sec PvP should be banned.

This is my biggest problem with other MMOs.

Why can't I killsteal? Why can't I rob corpses? Why can't I profit from someone else?

I'm glad Eve doesn't have the invisible moral forcefields that other games do.

Ignore the above troll. She uses her bluntness as a means of goading. Promote the banning of High Sec pvp. Save us care bears, or we will vote with our wallet and bankrupt you.

New'ish player here. This mechanic is what fascinated me about this game and which I spent almost my whole first month playing with, earning money and having fun.

+1 player being here -because- of that, not despite of it or being driven away by it.

Edit: I do not enjoy making other people feel bad. I do personally not feel emotional and unpleasant if someone takes my ship away from me, though. It just makes me be more on edge and more involved. That means I am actively adding excitement to other people's gameplay.
I am always polite when stealing from others, too.

Also, keep in mind that several of these activities (such as can flipping) are illegal in newbie tutorial sysystems.

CCP isn't heartless.

Don't like people stealing your stuff? Learn how to fight for it. "Griefers" can be killed just like everyone else.

so what you are saying is to enhace the NPE all CCP has to do is in one of the turtorial missions have an npc flip your wreck and then you engage him he dies and then he comes back ina bigger ship and kills you...

then you get a blurb saying that this is how eve works and you are imortal?

cool beans...
that way we can educate our younger players and that way they will know what kind of game they are playing...

So what you are saying is, it promotes a realistic outlook on life instead of some childish chivalry fantasy in which the honourable guys get the prize? I have no problem with that. They might grow from mission loot thieves, into respectable bankers some day.
