LOL. If there was an increase in player activity way before the idea of alphas the belts would still be empty. So..... ya

"Where did the mean little alpha touch you?"
-right where every capsuleer sensible area is... THE WALLET!

"I'm an alpha so feel free to come and remove my blood if you want to :)"
-suuuure! just let me know where you at and ill visit you. My pleasure.

"LOL. If there was an increase in player activity way before the idea of alphas the belts would still be empty. So..... ya"
-well... the player activity has increased and the new players are called alphas (generally), so... alpha blood it is.

I'll leave this here..."
- just... awesome. Thank you.

I really doubt a couple of extra relatively unskilled ventures have had any real impact on ore availability, tbh.

Maybe try moving to grown-ass adult space.

everything at its right time, my fellow capsuleer.

Concerning the impact of clone states... look again. previous to change 9 or 10 persons at a time in the system im settled... now 50-60. Oh, and did i mentioned the all-new npc miners?? i think i did!

let me be clear about something, im not saying "changes are bad", im just adapting. Just adapting.

Alphas don't mine enough to strip belts, also 1.0s have low amounts of ore per rock... go to .5 still highsec higher risk of gank, higher reward. Welcome to eve. #HTFU

Adapt indeed. Nobody is suggesting you pick up and move to nullsec - just move away from the newbro systems. I went through at least 4 empty highsec systems today with lots of ore belts. Empty. Meaning nobody even in local. Moving to those systems sounds like a perfectly reasonable way to adapt. I'm sure they're not always empty, but there's no shortage of low traffic highsec systems.

Or you can gank newbro miners in highsec. Nobody's ever tried that before.

fit the velator with 2 blasters, 2 scrambles, 2 MFS and 2 drones. if everything T2, should have no issue to kill a tanked but sitting-still venture in a 0.5 system before CONCORD response.
and I think the real belt eaters are the currently buffed orcas...

No. Alphas or Alpacas(ALPha ACcount A)are the new in November introduced Free to play Accounts. If a player buys a subscription with money or plex, he or she becomes an omega.

I hope they suck high sec dry so anyone that wants to make real isk has to quit hiding there.

And my previous statement stands: Move to grown-ass adult space.

Bully for you. They also really only consume a token amount of ore, so I'm not sure what point you imagine you're making here.

Why so serious? "Move to null sec"... noooo, I'm building my own corp here, growing slowly with patience. I already said "everything in its right time".

I don't get the hate here. This guy wants to kill alphas. What's wrong with that? If it makes him enjoy the game more that's completely up to him. I doubt 1 lousy player is going to make a dent in the alphas, and he'll blow up lots of ships making more demand. Maybe we can get him to take some friends with him =D.

That said, the new buffs to the Orca, and the new porpoise are probably to blame for your loss in ore. You're much better off relocating to new high sec areas. Those unskilled alphas aren't going to knock out the number of asteroids you are implying.

You are asking how to get some hot miner on miner action? In a Velator? Because it's free?

Just join CODE. for all you miner hating needs.

Those werent alphas that cleaned your belt. And im pretty sure the npc miners will just laugh off a velator.

Signatures wer cooler when we couldn't remove them completely.
