I have a solution for you! Don't run missions...they are horrible.

my old alt was the missioner

getting the feel of it w this char, worked up from lvl 1 to 2 to 3, no probs

and then just got "hung" in this object, wouldnt stop, wouldnt turn and like 20 baddies.

i guess i shoulda known better, not like any frackin thing about FIS has changed in two years


Shift+Space to stop the warp attempt, then double click an area of space away from the object you're getting hooked up on, wait a few seconds to get clear and then try to warp again.

I recently got stuck inside a station, no idea how it happened but my ship was in space inside the stationa, trying to warp just bounced me off the walls and trying to dock just got me the message "you are out of range" wtf? i'm IN the station how can i be out of range, lol. Got it fixed in the end by logging off and logging back in, seems the log off warp can fly through colidable objects.

i have to say the collision detection is ridiculous in eve.. you can be seen to be km from a belt and still be stuck on it.
When people lose ships because of it then it really should be sorted...CCP

Yes, so much for a "sci-fi simulator" that doesn't really even try to be realistic.
* As if there's a lot of resistance in space - but then asymmetrical ships should be uncontrollable.
* Clothes costing more than battleships.
* Insurance companies that hand out money to joyriders and never go bankrupt.
* Market overviews that don't seem to be able to get data from other regions, even if it's just 1 jump away.
* Minmatar agents in Amarr space (?!) giving missions to shoot Amarr Navy ships without repercussions.
* Ship's crew that doesn't seem to be able to fly around collidable objects but bump into them dozens of times.
* Thousands of years into the future and not even such a thing as radar.
* Police that can bribed for a dime so you can shoot whoever you want.

And so on. It doesn't exactly add to the immersion imo.

Yes sometimes it's pretty annoying. Not only asteroids but also all the space debris in missions and complexes seem to have invisible extra pieces that you can magically stick onto.

If you stop playing, make a post in local at Jita saying you re leaving this game for ever. Have people send you many isks.....scream HARD...this was a scam..... (who will tell Blink ) then buy a new Drake to mine with. Problem solved. Big smile

That depends on what kind of science fiction you want to simulate.

Is it the '50s Buck Rogers / space opera kind? Then EVE is if anything overly scientifically accurate.
Is it the Clarke kind of “hard” scifi? Then EVE is a bit too soft to qualify.
Is it the DeGuinn / Aasimov kind of social scifi? Then EVE is a marvel, and the space ship part isn't even relevant.
Is it the Stephenson kind of fiction about science? Then EVE isn't even in the right category.
Is it the Shelley kind of moral-ethical scifi? Then EVE is an interesting experiment.
Is it the Adams kind of humorous scifi? Then there's not much to simulate, or at least no “rules” to abide by.
Is it the Gibson kind of cyberpunk scifi? Then EVE is an adequate, if poorly fleshed out, setting.
Is it the Masamune kind of post-cyberpunk scifi? Then EVE is a bit too dark.

…etc…

* Asteriod belts that respawn within days. In real life they take millions of years
*Pilots like the OP, who has proven himself to be a bad pilot by losing a Drake in a level 3 mission, can still get insurance at the same rate as everyone else.
*NPC Pirates that continue to appear in places like Dodixie and Motsu despite getting their arses kicked every single day for the past 7 years. Surely they would move to somewhere else?
*An agent gives out the same mission several times a day to 1000's of people in the same system. That's like sending 1000 SEAL teams to shoot Osama 1000 times!
*Any Tom, **** or Harry can create a corporation. There should be some sort of test to determine if you are 'fit and proper' person to start your own company.
*There is no porn hidden in the couch of my CQ.

It doesn't exactly add to the immersion does it?

No one will care.

De'Veldrin's Corollary (to Malcanis' Law): Any idea that seeks to limit the ability of a large nullsec bloc to do something in the name of allowing more small groups into sov null will inevitably make it that much harder for small groups to enter sov null.

Jesus Wept.

And yeah, I'm raging. just lost a Drake on a farking lvl 3 recon mission because it got "embedded" in "large collidable" objects when I tried to warp out. Just sat there squirming around like a chick taking it in the pooper for the first time, like happens half the times at an Accell Gate - hung up on invisible things.


CCP- Can I get a Monocle for the loss of my Drake?


ARRRRGGGGG

hmm.... did you have cargo expanders on that drake or something? You can tank a drake up to a lvl 4..........

Plz rage quit already if you can't keep you're ship off a giant mining colony , station, asteriod, or whatever it was in the mission.

hello obsidian here.


Nothing has changed since 2006 when i started playing. you always get stuck on gates and you also need to watch out for those large collideable objects. They arent hard to miss. but they will kill you dead.

Why Can't I have a picture signature.

Also please support graphical immersion, bring back the art that brought people to EvE online originaly.

The same magic ponies that prevent you from entering a gate / wormhole when you suicide gank someone in highsec.

I tried to run some of the epic arc missions once, I got bored after like 3 missions and wound up not playing for the next 3 weeks.

It might be suitable punishment for running missions. You can then be taunted for that too.

On a non trolling note: Yes there's still a ton of "papercuts" in eve, hopefully CCP will start a serious effort to fix them after this last waste of time expansion. I'm not holding my breath though. Go do something fun, join a nullsec, or wormhole, or pvp corp, that's where the fun is in eve.
