High sec could just be for people running NPC missions and not actually wanting much else from the game.

Perhaps take your content to null where it's needed ?



Or since it is a sandbox people can do what they like provided they are willing to accept whatever consequences might occur.

I played eve on another account a year after release.
It was great, mining and chatting all day. No griefers.

My rl mate tried eve a couple years ago, he just wanted to mine, he got stalked and constantly greifed in HS so he quit EvE.
Thanks you greifing shmucky Kids.

I think it says a lot about him as a gamer if even mining in Highsec is too hard for him.

Since high sec offers zero safety, why not mine in 0.0? Also zero safety, more ore, better ore.

Please don't lie.

Back when you claimed to play we had the likes of M0o, a pirate organisation that makes todays look as deadly as cotton wool wrapped in air and mechanics that made EVE a hell of a lot more dangerous.

Well, no I'm not lying. It was a new player to eve. Obviously someone was using locator agents and finding him whenever he moved systems and was trying to extort ISK, of which he had none. After a week on greifing by the same guy he gave up on EvE; if he couldn't even mine in HS with a two week old toon (which is how he was learning the game) then he never saw the point in continuing. New bros whould be protected against multiple grefiing attacks in HS at least for the 1st month while they get to grips.

They are, doing what you just described is in fact a bannable offence. It is also extremely rare.

It is funny to read these forums.

The wolves killed most of the sheep.

Now new sheep do not want to come in to the pasture. So the farmer is trying to protect the sheep that are left and to entice new ones in.

And now the wolves complain even more.

Why would anyone feel sorry for the wolves?

The CSM gets in the way of CCP communicating properly with the players of this game.

After all we are not just players, we are customers.

Time for the CSM to be disbanded.

Because that's not what happened.

The wolfs got heavily culled over the years and now the sheep are leaving because they are bored.

high sec ganking seems active as ever to me

heck systems like Uedama are still so lethal that they are black holes....

castrating high sec content creators? Uedama says otherwise. as its literally a high sec SIEGE system that "content creates" anyone dumb enough to go in.

and systems like Osmon are still very active.



gotta remember high sec is not low sec.
but despite that, high sec is still pretty dangerous. which is fine as it is now.

but if more "Uedama murder pits" start popping up....that would be concerning. the occasional one is fine. but alot of them...would be problematic.



plus, high sec "content creators" don't seem to have problems war deccing everyone who comes through the jita stargate. they do it like its free candy.



high sec is fine right now. don't try to make high sec low sec.

Judging by your posting history and it's content, yours is an alt of a ganker account that's been playing for much more than 5 months. I'm not judging... just calling you out.

I'm just coming back after a two-year hiatus; glad to be back, btw.

What are you guys talking about with "bumping mechanics" and ganking? Did CCP outlaw bumping or something?

A change is coming sometime where a ship automatically enters warp after three minutes of hitting the 'warp' button even if they are being bumped.

So no more bumping someone for an hour while trying to get a gank fleet together.

I think it's amazing how you can take anything, flip it, twist it, and serve it to your purpose. I wonder if you really believe this delusion, or you're just trying to sell it for your cause.
