A Nerf to Datacores....The CCP mistake

The problem here (and I love you CCP, but I have to be honest) is that CCP has been lazy with this entire aspect of Eve. The whole system is lazy. There is no 'research' involved. No real reason to do the missions and you are limited to one mission per day even if you wanted to.

Then you get these rp's and what are they good for? Nothing but making datacores. Why not have an rp store? Maybe you can use them to purchase components needed to make t2 stuff, or bpc's? Be a little creative.

Rather than find a solution, datacore's get moved to fw - with no real in-game rationale.

No good deed goes unpunished

I started EvE when in college as a mode of stress reduction. I could mine semi-afk, make some corresponding gains, buy shiny stuff in concert with my in-game income, all while doing homework and staying productive during my education.

I chose to grind R&D rep specifically to get a passive income stream. I trained all those skills and prerequisites as a priority, when I could have been training pew-pew skillz for the active glory.

Now I find, that due to a managerial decision, passiive incomes suck, and all those who played the game intelligently as it was designed, are gonna get hammered in the passive income department.

Now that I have gainful employment after college, I find that I have less time to play, not more, as I envisioned during my college experience.

With even more time devoted to my career, and less time for gaming, this nerf is particularly cutting.

Dare I tell the Devs to go fork themselves? No. I won't. I will only say that there are many people who have adapted to the EvE environment in many ways, and I do not understand why CCP has selected some for enhancement, and others, via our intelligent choices based upon game mechanics, to be marginalized.

This is NOT a sandbox. This is fascism in which the people in control determine the outcome via biased social engineering. And the minute the realization is made that the game is not fair, and actually rigged at the whim of the Devs/CCP Management, is the minute you have to realize that the sandbox is not governed by the players as advertised.

I think I'm insane. All I really wanted to say was: give us back our passive income stream !!!


Your an idiot!

I think that I won't be the only char in the game that won't do Factional Warfare. I can agree in the fact that was a unfair passive income whatever you do in the game, but however it's a waste of time to have skills (that skills for Datacore farming) that you won't use for several of us. Will we have some option to reimburse that SP's like when the Learning Skills were removed?

U mad?

Please tell me what you have lost that could possibly require a skill reimbursment?

It's not a zero sum equation. Put your spreadsheet away.
