Most boring eve experience ever

This needs to be clearly said:

Either the game is bugged completely or this is intentional this way, then the game designers have a completely false point of view to what a game needs.

Eve has become boring, uninspiring, longbreathed and disillusioning and over top of all: unchallenging.

Might be im a carebear allthough im spending more time in lowsec and nullsec than in highsec, but im defintely not intersted in the stupid .. whatever it is .. but it isnt PVP. Im interested in the economic and in PVE content. I do alot of combat sigs in all kinds of security and from what i see it is since about 3 weeks just BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORING. There are few spawns, like almost no rewards.

When im in nullsec and scanning down a relic site then i expect something different than 5 cans of which 4 are empty and in the last is 1 carbon and some salvage i can sell for 3.000 ISK.

When im exploring then im expecting something different than mapping wormholes over and over and over and over and at least over again. This is UNINTERESTING.

And when i get some interesting exppedition and it comes like 1 in 50 sigs, then this is also UNINTERESTING.

These are time sinks. And when i find that my time is wasted, then im looking for something else, that is more interesting. My community is leaving game or is simply so bored that other stuff has become much more interesting than flying around doing .. nothing. This then shouldnt be called a "game" but a graphic supoorted option to beat dead time without any sense at all.

I still have plex avail, subscription cancelled and if CCP decides to do something that is more intersting than wasting time in redesiging the cloak animation at gates like bringing content that challenges and entertains their customers, then send me an email.

Until then, have fun doing nothing.

Yet another casualty of SPEDS.

Sudden Player Entitlement Derangement Syndrome.

There's a million angry citizens looking down their me.

I've never really seen an mmo with interesting pve content. If I wanted that even 2nd rate single player games are better than the best mmo pve. To me the reason for playing an mmo is for the multiplayer, so don't really mind that eve pve is boring, coz I simply don't do it.

It's the ZP EVE review all over again.

"I'm not actually going to, you know, play the game, but it better entertain me anyway."

Witty Image - Stream

Not Liking this post hurts my RL feelings and will be considered harassment

Maybe my understanding of PVE and PVP is wrong.

PVE = content provided to the customers that can be solved as a community together or as solo player.

PVP= customers can play versus each other in the provided content, as community or solo.

When reading your comment im understanding that PVE is never interesting at all. Hm. When i played online games i had mostly to differ PVE content for solo, groups or raids and in most games ive played which had been considered as MMOG like e.g. Everquest, World of Warcraft, Age of Conan, Runes of Magic or even newer ones like Dragons Prophet the PVE content was at least 50% of all content.

PVP is an option to play as i see it, except in the lowbudged stuff like Battlefield, World of Tanks/Warplanes and such kind of first person shooters.

In Eve there is few PVP if at all. Its mostly PKing: Waiting for someone u can kill with the lowest risk possible by having the according numbers to do so. That is why i find PVP content in Eve is not really PVP , but waiting for the most harmless and safest kill possible.

my community has been working together doing lots of stuff, also involving PVP actions sometimes. But our mere interest was not in flying around and waiting for targets we can kill safely. Our interest was on economics, market and so called politics - interaction with others outside of our community.

As of now our activities are mostly just decreasing and sinking and some already have left or dont come online anymore. On investigating why - RL issues and also demotivation as few is left to do.

Go play PVP, there are enough outside to do so, it is just not our main interest and if eve turns into some kind of first person shooter, then simply this not as interesting to me, there are many better games in which you can find the environment to fight versus others without being massively outnumbered or forced to spend days waiting for a target and do nothing in meanwhile but watch videos or so.

There is something to OP's point though - recently exploration appears to have taken a double nerf - less sites spawning and less reward when they are found.

The first may be true or may be simply that the sites are sitting untouched in rarely visited systems.

The second does appear to be due to changes to the loot tables which in itself may cause the first issue as there is less incentive to run them.

At the very least we have had confirmation of some changes coming in Phoebe - Dev blog - so not being totally ignored by CCP

3. Ranting is prohibited.

A rant is a post that is often filled with angry and counterproductive comments. A free exchange of ideas is essential to building a strong sense of community and is helpful in development of the game and community. Rants are disruptive, and incite flaming and trolling. Please post your thoughts in a concise and clear manner while avoiding going off on rambling tangents.

I'm sorry you feel the way you do. I'd encourage you to constructively post game improvement suggestions on the Features & Ideas board.

Thread locked.
