You don't realize that if you autopilot, you are giving anyone who cares to shoot you 15km worth of time to do it?

It's quite literally the dumbest thing you can do in the game.

i dnt get what u mean...

that mission runners are vulnerable when out numbered? if it is that, then: No ****.

No, more that PvP fits are typically purpose tailored and as such aren't any more likely to withstand unexpected PvP intrusions than PvE tailored fits, especially in the middle of a fight.

The issue is if you're going to blow up 10 hours of my life i spent farming missions for isk, i want it to be more fun then scram, web, and wait to die because i touched a yellow box i shouldn't have. There is also the classic get 1 shotted by a couple nados, that's always a fun way to lose 10 hours of my life.

I want a fighting chance, i want the high sec gankers to put as much at risk as i am. I want a chance to learn something in pvp that isn't well i shouldn't have done that and now i'm boned by someone who does this for a living.


if no'1 in the OP becomes a reality, this will be half solved.

With the current agro rules, if done right, it's a 2 to 1 in favor of the missioner. Rats HATE any e-war, including warp scrambling.

I had never considered this. I'm going to consider this point for a bit I think and try and respond later.

id say sometimes ppl do change their fits, or take specific counters in PvP when they know what they are up against. but u dnt always know what ur fighting in PvP. there are plenty of cookie cutter fits and plenty of times players will have a 'go to' fit that they use as their standard.

It's not really that bad. You can get into a Raven and start blowing through missions with less than 250 mil. Now if you're talking bling, then it's a different ballgame.


A basic raven worth 250m could make what 30m/hour tops? That's still 8 hours which is quite a lot to just lose in a second

Quote:

Luckily for game balance as a whole, pricetag doesn't determine who wins fights. Nor should it. Because even a hint of something like that might as well be telling new players that they shouldn't bother, ever.


For sure this is needed for mutual pvp but it gives those ganking in high a huge edge over mission boats and you want to make it even easier for them?

Quote:

Depends on your fit, of course. If you're intending to attack anything, certainly.


I don't intend on attacking anything when running mission that's the whole point. If i want to attack something i go to low. There is no way i can kill someone in a mission boat without them warping off making the LE totally one sided.

Likely already lost, btw. Nothing is guaranteed. And you need to think about something else:

CONCORD is the problem with what you're talking about.



Remove concord and every gate turns into a camp fest, markets collapse because no one can get to jita to trade. No i don't think anyone likes that idea.

I find your post ironic considering that the OP is to some extent suggesting the same kind of changes you are suggesting in the thread linked in your signature. In fact, I suspect that if the two of you worked together you could come up with some pretty good ideas.

u'd have to be quite reckless to lose a raven every 8 hours of playtime.

or dnt use a raven? u and ur friends could get together in drakes and be quite formidable.

Damn near impossible under the current system which is why I'm saying don't change it, don't encourage more high sec pvp.

Personally, because so much else appeals to me:

Spaceships
Fitting spaceships
Flying spaceships
Buying new spaceships
Flying those new spaceships
Changing fittings on those spaceships as changes are made
Flying those spaceships again
Visual appeal of certain spaceships
Visual appeal of the game in general
Passive skill training
Skill system appeals to me more than the character level system
Not restricted to any sort of "class" with a particular character
Never not able to trade/sell something because "soulbound"
Never not able to play with others I know who play the game because of different servers

Yay post history saving me from retyping!

The same could be said for undocking. Anyone who wants to shoot you has an oppurtunity. Doesn't mean everybody is going to pop my shuttle though. It's not as dumb as you think. There are worse things you could do. and in my personal experience, no one has ever shot at me when i autopiloted. So while somebody could shoot me, theres also a strong possibility they won't. If done improperly almost anything done in Eve can be stupid. Do it right and you're smart. Same basic action. Different results.

Cheap ships being remotely effective compared to expensive ones is good for everyone. Gank ships don't have a "huge advantage" over anyone who is awake. If it were as prevalent as you seem to think it is...

no one could mission. And yet people do. The market is flooded with faction ammo, mods, and implants. Clearly, despite the supposed huge advantage gank ships have, it's getting done.

And yet, I didn't say that.

What I said was, you need to consider that the very thing that makes highsec safer is the reason why you are complaining that you can't get fair fights, or fight anyone worthwhile.

Because CONCORD makes it into a binary equation for pretty much the only real way to kill someone. They can dodge a wardec, they can refuse a duel, so ganking is the only avenue left.

They fly and fight the way they do because that's the best option left.

No, not really. There isn't a better alternative to undocking that makes you much safer.

There is for autopilot.

60 mil basic, they can net you at least 90 mil when done right in level 4s.
