Hello,

People are probably gonna hate me for this suggestion, but maybe there should be a warning when undocking with cargo that is worth much more than the actual ship. It would be good for newbies, because i bet they will leave the game if they get surprise ganked while carrying all of their hard earned stuff with insufficent tank or planning

Have you seen the 56b freighter with 89 plex in it that got ganked in Uedama? That guy and people like him are to blame for high value/ freighter ganks. Rage at stupid people, not the ones who euthanize them.

no, the game shouldn't tell you that you're an idiot. it'd be rude.

The trouble with EVE is if people didn't do stupid things, they would never undock. Nobody would fly solo, any where, any time.

EVE would grind to a halt. Like it has in Null Sec.

If any 'newbies' have items of significant value then they are not newbies but ebayers.

Never fly what you can't afford to lose.

…or you can just look in the lower right corner of your cargo hold window.

EVE does not and should never cater for player stupidity. at any level.

If these people aren't already aware that their cargo is worth a lot then something isn't functioning properly in their skull.

Barge buff proves that wrong.

CCP has no sense of humour.

Fix it? CCP capitalize on it.

EvE is the only game that encourages griefing (the epitome of stupid person activity). Look at the tears from these 'tards every time there's a rebalance and they are actually expected to think for themselves to come up with a solution.

Epic threads from the brainless. But as long as CPP keeps these morons that have been banned from every other MMO they've played paying every month, things are working as intended.
