So you mean, the thread title should have been:

" Nerf HIGHSEC Incursion rewards "

...right ?

So, people go to high-sec to earn cash in relative peace then blow it on PLEX and PVP ships that get one-way tickets to Pretty Explosion Heaven.

Incursion fleet's happy. PVPer is happy. Manufacturer of PVP ships is happy. Daytrader of PVP ships and PLEX is happy. Guy that spends RL money on PLEX is happy. Only people that aren't happy are people that wanted to gank PVE fit ships.

What's the problem? Lots of people only feel comfortable PVPing if they can easily replace their losses. If ISK is hard as hell to earn then people just stop PVPing, or stop playing altogether.

Seriously, what is the problem here? I'm not being sarcastic. I'm genuinely curious.

I know sometimes it's difficult to realize just how much you spend on incidental things each month or year, but seriously, EVE is very cheap entertainment compared to most things... If you are a smoker, smoke one less pack a week and pay for EVE, with money left over to pick up a cheap bundle of flowers for the EVE widow upstairs.

there is no problem. Some people in null sec just want to be spoon fed. Next they'll be demanding EVE use neurological controls because reaching for their mouse is much too hard and some people in high sec are using 2 monitors while the poor null sec carebears only have one.

I sense a lot of jealousy in the OP. You don't have a toy like the other kids do, so the teacher must take it away from everyone to make you happy!

Some have mentioned it, but still, it's about balancing rewards.
1) In general, a high sec incursion should pay 50% or less than a low sec incursion. This is to justify two things: a) People will bring extremely expensive (sometimes even multiple billion) ships into a high sec incursion, knowing full well there is no risk. Thus, they will by default be 10-20% more efficient (i'm just making up numbers here) than their low sec counterparts. b) There is that small risk of actually be engaged in pvp in a low sec incursion, I haven't myself gone to any of those so I wouldn't know.

2) Incursion sites themselves should be balanced better. In particular, it is said that certain VG sites (mostly NCOs) are done too fast with very little risk, and those sites need a change. NCOs need to be nerfed while NMCs and OTAs buffed relatively to each other. On the other hand they might all get nerfed in relation to larger sites.

I would, but obviously you are a master of creativity even with your color blindness. ****, I think even a blind dog could get eye cancer looking at your face.
