So do I. If you count a five account gank as solo. P

(though to be fair two account ganks were my norm, silly high sec pubbies getting butthurt over ninja salvaging and taking a shot at me.)

Griefing is more or less easier, ganking is slightly harder, exploration is much easier and really annoying. Also there is a new crime watch system so don't try can flipping unless you don't mind everyone in Eve being able to shoot at you (not always a bad thing).

That's all that's really changed.

I don't, because it's not solo.
I don't actually need alts for ganking either.


Why did you come back anyway ? Also, "pubbies" is out again.
Nobody except goons uses that. Are you a goon ?

No.

explorer - loot spew, easy scanning, crap imo

griefer - the same really, some tos changes, you cant claim to be an alt of someone your not or something (not even sure this applies).

gank squad areas of interest - any trade hub, any low sec/null sec bottleneck. as for gank 'combat', mining barges have changed to basically 2 types, tanky or yieldy. catalysts and tornado seem to be the gank ship of choice in high sec.

im sure ive missed alot, but i try

Well if you gank ice miners, sometimes you have to wait 4 hours for the ice belt to spawn.

Looking to talk on VOIP with other EVE players? Are you new and need help with EVE (welfare) or looking for advice? Looking for adversarial debate with angry people?

Hrmmm, three part answer.

I'll do goonies first. LOL stupid nubs. I've spoofed moar goonies in my time because they think everyone not a goon is an easy mark. This can be capitalized on quite well.

As to the ganking. Welp sure solo ganking is fun and gets you major props but having extra accounts to scout/bait and then bring the pain is satisfying in its own right. Different strokes for different folks I suppose.

Why did I come back? Because I can.

Meh ice miners are small time and for players looking to get neg 10 as fast as legitimately possible.

Exploration is brain dead now eh? Good. Cheap disposable faction fits are always nice.

Read the tos. Business as usual it seems.

I prefer null sec and low sec ganks. Alliance territory was always easy prey if you didn't stick around and try to farm the same areas.

Thanks. Game seems fresher graphically and lag so far is non existant even in nullsec.

This is coming from a player who had 15 second or more session changes in contested space three years ago.

Jumping from system to system even in jita was nearly instantaneous and a massive change from how it used to be.

Kudo's ccp devs on improving the game to a point it almost feels brand new.

Pfft. If the bonus isk for buying from them made a real difference in a players wallet then they failed at eve..

Good good. Active goons in a pvp game is a healthy thing to have. Twisted

Not a good time to come back, eve was better when you left. Rubicon looks **** and we haven't a proper expansion since you left, plus thanks to balance initiatives most popular ships and weapons are mathematically equal which makes them dull to fly as there's no edge to be honed anymore. It can still be fun though, but you've got to work much harder to find it.

Dumbing down of Eve Online will result in it's destruction...
