podding in lowsec

I resubbed for a month after a long break but the conditions that pushed me away still remain.

-10s can fly freely in lowsec, camp the gates en masse and pod anyone (except other -10s lol) who comes through. There is no penalty for them. If you bring reinforcements then they can fly to the station and dock. Both of these are what I object to:

1. -10 can use the lowsec stations even though they are -10
2. podding in lowsec

Ships can be lost np since they can easily be replaced. Don't fly what you cannot afford to lose is fine and I am willing to risk ships. What I am not willing to risk is implants. Being ganked by twenty -10s and then immediately podded after peeking into lowsec makes the game not worth playing.

To those who remain, have fun. I may check back again in a year or two, if the game is still running.

You are complaining about podding in low while there is podding by -10's in High also. There is no exception to where you can be ganked at.

TL;DR I suck at EVE devs please give me the WoW experience. Next thing you'll say -10's don't deserve to be subbed at all because they're well... -10's.What?

If you get podded in low sec (where there are no bubbles) then its entirely your fault, use a ping or warp your pod out, its not hard.

What's the problem?

They're outlaws breaking the law in outlaw space. What's so strange or objectionable about that? Do you also object to traders trading in trade space Jita (and in stations to boot)?

Have you tried not being ganked and podded? It's not all that hard…

He succeeded for two years apparently

Also good luck saving your pod when pipe bombers arrive

There are good ships,

And wood ships,

And ships that sail the sea

But the best ships are Spaceships

You have no choice but to risk implants. Why should you get to fly in a full set of pirate implants at no risk? You get the benefit so you have to take the risk you lose them - it's Eve 101. What kind of game do you think this is?

If you don't want to risk them, your only option is to not fly with them.

Allow me to speak on his behalf since I'm 90% sure this is what he will say anyways.

[Ignorant rant about how -10's are psychopaths iRL and deserve to have everyone they've loved, and befriended gassed and shot in front of said -10's because they deserve it since they are psychopaths for exploding my internet spaceship me in a game about shooting internet spaceships with the sole purpose of exploding in the missionary position. This rant should be around 50 lines long without any spacing, line breaks and is generally one entire sentence so no periods and it's riddled with grammatical and spelling errors.]

Op, I guess you've been away for some time as you were caught in a cargo fit mining Navitas. There is a great wee ship called the Venture now which is much more adapted to your needs. They even have brought out a T2 co-ops version. It's a sexy model too. Losing a half bill pod is always going to smart, but the truth is, eventually everyone gets caught by a well organised gatecamp in lowsec. Everyone.

I've been away for a bit myself and come back to find my 50 mill pods are now worth 300+ mill. I decided on Monday to kick my Genolution habit and roll a clean pod. Which was just as well as on Tuesday I got Santo'dLol Add that guy to your watchlist btw. That was a sebo'd out the ass Sin/Proteus team with a smartbomb finish to catch my pod. Even if I had 2 warp stabs fitted I would have got caught as I suspect there was a 3 point faction scram involved.

That guy put a lot of isk into that camp.

I'm going to give you the obligatory HTFU. Adapt and overcome. The good (possibly bad) news is that lowsec is a much more vibrant place these days. Many more people live there and there is more stuff to do. Even running a hauler through low and not getting caught is a pvp activity.

Oh, yeah, speaking of haulers, they got rebalanced too. Fit a wreathe or sigil (now with agility bonus) with some istabs and the new warp speed rigs and you can be taking 3k m2 of cargo round faster that a frigate.

They still would have got caught by a organised gatecamp or in other words, get ambushed by bandits.

It is all a matter of target audience. Eve used to be targeted to a more general player base. Now it is aiming for the demographic highlighted by the posters in this thread. Players interested in fun games should look elsewhere.

I only had two accounts and unfortunately I resubbed both for one month. Could have gotten several steam games with that money :(

Saving your pod (and implants) isn't that hard (most of the time)

Oh dear, you have been away for a while. Many people would in fact say this game is targeted more for a "general" player base and that as a result, something in eve has died.

Eve stands for 'Everyone Vs Everyone' and for my money it's only exciting because my opponents are other real people with real brains and hearts. This game's made me so mad I'd kick a dog and so overjoyed I'd kiss a bloke. It has high stakes and, importantly, jeopardy.

It's jeopardy that makes this game great, and if you die, there was probably something you could have done to avoid it and it was probably your fault for not spotting the signs.


Still, that said. You're going to get caught by a organised gatecamp eventually. It's a rite of passage.

You should be flattered that they brought so much isk to the table just to catch your wee mining frig.
