Hey,

I find it totally untolarable, that 3 1 mill Isk ships can easily gank my tanked 300mill hull. Sorry, but this makes me really sad. It put me out of business for good, that was my last money. Your cool event just cost CCP a subscriber.


Yes tears are delightful, yadda, yadda, no stuff is to be had, because it all exploded.

"Don't fly anything you can't afford to lose"

It's kind of a general rule of thumb in Eve.

As I said, yes. These tears are what you after, have them. Risk/ Reward/Cost are totally out of whack here.
Being capable to destroy a ship with a 100th of the isk in the "safer" empire space is just ridicoulus.

And I know that this will get trolled to hell and back. Hiding behind some Internet Avatar and flinging big words is easy, heh? Well this was my last reply here, fly safe.

Mission accomplished. Next time you'll learn to fit a tank instead of 2 MLU.

No I just don't see how 3 moronic griefers with no risk will make me mine for wweeks on end to get another Hulk.

That is the point. And yes, maybe I am a wuss.

Nah, EVE is a skill based game with a strategic focus in that you have to plan out your ship fit strategy in advance. Being successful in EVE requires brains and skill not who swipes their credit card the most. You are looking for games under the category Pay2Win.

Yes skill, that takes 10hrs to create a toon to fly a thrasher and just press f1 once... really skillful players. The mechanic to punish you is easily circumvented by just deleting the toon. Rinse, repeat...

This is skilfull exactly where?

Also, just because it is worth 100x the isk doesn't mean it has 100x the survivability. If you want a ship with 100x the combat survivability, get a tier 3 battleship - you know, a ship designed for combat - rather than complaining that a mining ship has a crappy tank. Thats like complaining a stealth bomber has a small drone bay; it is irrelevant and shows how great your lack of understanding of the game is.

Also, if you got caught and ganked, you were afk or not paying attention to local/dscan, so it is your fault you lost your hulk. Hulkageddon is Darwinism in action, it removes the terrible members of the playerbase, leaving the game overall a better place afterwards.

Three things:

1. Why not mine somewhere where people don't gank? Unpopulated low-sec areas and high-sec islands come to mind.

2. Players are responsible for Hulk prices, not CCP. Blame your fellow greedy carebears for the 300m price tag, because the ship could cost under a hundred.

3. Why not use a different ship to mine, therefore mining less, but making more money?

I wrote some true EVE stories! And no, they're not of the generic "my 0.0 alliance had lots of 0.0 fleets and took a lot of 0.0 space" sort. Check them out here:

EVE Online requires the following things :

1: A Brain
2: Common Sense
3: IQ Greater than 50 (Ok maybe 100)
4: Someone who actually reads and not just "mashes buttons"
5: The ability to "Learn"

If you don't have ANY of the above items...

Don't expect to get anywhere.

Welcome ot EVE Online...or as you so painfully cried out.

So long...sucks to be you..have a nice day...and oh can I has stuff?

To be fair, 100 is the normalized average, and judging by EVE players' math and language skills, I'd say only a fifth of all players meet this requirement.
