Do you mean bumping or leaving system while it's under heavy TiDi to wait out aggression

How?

I keep hearing this accusation yet never hear the argument to support it.

This just marks the continuing trend and the road that CCP has been on forever: making hisec "safe" for everyone..

I agree with OP's assessment of the mackinaw and also agree that this changing what made eve 'special' for so many of us.

I can't even fathom how making it player versus player conflict more difficult in a game marketed entirely on various types of player versus player conflict seems like a good idea to anyone, regardless of which particular variety of space it happens in.

I guess that's just how far removed the trains of thought of people who actually want to play EVE and the people who want to play world of warcraft with spaceships are.

CCP has just entered a phase of the game where it is milking the consumer for all that's left before they jump ship. We've seen this trend happen over the past two or three years and it's only getting more blatant. It's like watching a family member get cancer and die slowly.

Malarky most whines on EVENEWS24, THEMITTANI.COM, & EVE forum posts/blogs are NULL seccerz bleating about how to move HI SECerz into NULL so they have more EZ prey. Your post is yet another whine that everybody's sandbox shouldbe the way you want it.



I don't want you in null so I can kill you. Buy my stuff, and if you want to fight, we'll get it going. Carebears delude themselves into thinking everyone else wants to kill them. It's really not that bad "out there", and a lot easier than it used to be before WTZ and other changes.

What is a ship here but a few pixels and some time, lose it? So what, get another. It's not that complicated.

Except actually, it's us.

We're the ones being boiled slowly.

Well, we as players exist in a symbiotic (or perhaps parasitic for some) relationship with Eve. When one gets sick, the other feels it. Eve gets cancer and dies, so does the playerbase.

Yeah, but you're supposed to fry them:

So come on, CCP, fire up that skillet and shut-off all aggro in hisec already. Stop mincing around and kill your game already, --we know you want to so you can milk as much pay to win out of the Dusties as possible, you know you want to-- so ******* do it already.

So then the rest of us will finally have to face that we have no choice but to finally move on from your increasingly-archaic and obsolescent game.

But do keep the forums open so we can all come back and say "I told you so."

Ni.

maybe if you did something with your ******* CSM slot, you could have prevented it. instead, you like to comment long long after the fact. You sit on your ass for your entire term but now you're back to tell us how wrong CCP is? Where the **** were you?
