Use a tractor beam?


LOL why should I have to? Seriously. 2500 meters to loot something... why not 10km. Why not 50km? Why is the arbitrary number so small? What were they trying to achieve? Just make things take more time... FOR WHAT?

Besides, if I want a tractor beam, I'd have to sacrifice being able to actually shoot things... JUST TO BE ABLE TO LOOT THEM? Are you insane? Who came up with these ideas?



Not sure if trolling or just incredibly stupid.

Whining about something you could easly fix with a quick dock->fit tractor beam->undock -> warp to wrecks.


This could be fun.

Right we've already established that EVE must be different than every other MMO ever made, and that looting NPCs must be a slow, boring and drawn out process to get other players time to steal your loot. Now let's move on.

I can appreciate your opinion. I do not agree with it.

In order to train into a Cruiser you need to train to a specific races Frigate skill to a level of IV. What you are asking for is that once you have done that, Frigates become useless. Additionally, once you train Cruisers to IV you train Battleships and Cruisers become obsolete. This is what happens in your idea of skill advancement.

No ship can do it all. All ships are useful. How is that a problem?

Looting is an activity in this game that like all other activities is optional. If you are so upset by the fact that you can't open a cargo container using sophisticated technology that defies the laws of physics then don't bother with it. It really isn't worth the anxiety and frustration you are displaying here.

I run missions quite frequently. After I blow everything up and bookmark a wreck in each room. I dock, turn mission in, jump in the Noctis and skin the buffalo. I choose to do this and never has the thought ever entered my mind that I should not have to do this and that CCP sucks for making me do this and I am going to unsub because I have to do this. I choose to do this.

What you are asking for is to make ships like the Noctis obsolete just so you can feel good. How does that make sense?

No. That's just something you've dreamed up because you don't want to use the many tools and techniques at your disposal and refuse to do it the quick and easy way, and because you cannot conceive of the notion that your choice is at fault so you have to blame the poor innocent game instead.

Dear CCP

I have a problem in the game, and while you may have provided the tools for me to mitigate this problem myself, I still just want you to change the entire game.

Kind regards

In the next patch, in an effort to be more realistic and to avoid players from being able to escape getting ganked by players, or NPCs, warping is being removed from the game.

However, quicker travel is still possible, by using cyno fields and black ops/carriers.

So, while many player will be affected negatively, the tools and mechanisms are in game to be able to travel from system to system quickly.

No. They already fixed that by no implementing teleportation.

Someone please tell me any other MMO that makes you spend an HOUR just looting the things you've killed.

As if a popup loot window is SO difficult to program after you shoot something. It may come as a shock to CCP, or Icelanders in general, but spending 10 minutes slowboating to a wreck is not exactly engaging or fun. And having to alt-tab out to the internet every 5 minutes so you don't fall asleep is not very immersive.

Now name a successful MMO that doesn't let you customize the look of your avatar. Oh right, there isn't one. Because people like to customize how they look in a game. (I'm talking about ships)

I've played on and off for 5 years and these 2 things have really grinded my gears. CCP thinks the rules don't apply to them. Well, you like to brag about how everything on EVE is on one server... that's because hardly anyone wants to play your game. And those who do aren't rewarded for actually playing and doing things in the game, because it's all TIME based. (ROFL what a joke)

(You make more money that way.)

If you actually made your gave attractive to the general population instead of a small niche audience, you wouldn't have to have micro transactions because people would gladly pay a subscription.


If only there was some sort of "module" in order to "propel" our ships at an "increased velocity" in order to short the time needed to burn between objects within the eve universe.... alas there is obviously not, nor or their modules that you can use when your not moving to bring objects closer to you.

Now that said, i just want to be clear, im being sarcastic their are modules that do both (The hints are in the quoted words), also, posting to confirm that OP is a moron. Obligatory "Go Back To WoW"

Your thread is bollocks, you talk bollocks, go grow some bollocks.


And just to be constructive, go get a Noctis, fit a salvager to your mission ship or get a second account and train that to use a Noctis.

I was quite sure he was trolling.
But that was before he confirmed he is from Texas.
Now i am absolutely sure that... well... he did confirm he is from Texas... i don´t think i need to elaborate.
Cool

I got lost in thought... it was unfamiliar territory.

I killed several stormcloaks on skyrim yesterday with my bow and arrows. I had to ******* walk up to their corpses to loot them! This is outrageous, all of their stuff should magically teleport into my pockets!
