  • [April] [Updated] Confessor and Svipul Balance Tweaks in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Wouldn't change give the Svipul a little over 19% increased performance in heating its guns in a ship with an already flat 25% reduction in heat damage?

    They're all similar to your "New players are affected most adversely by the current system. They are already behind in SP and that will forever be the case unless they purchase a character. To make matters worse, they are in less of a position than older players in being able to afford to replace lost learning implants when podded".

    I'll agree that my list is silly, just as your logic is in this regard. That's the point.


    Uh, I think you meant to quote someone else because I didn't say what was in that quote and never even mentioned buying a character on the bazaar. Check next time before posting pls.

    I don't see this as a bad thing at all. As it stands the quickest way to skill up efficiently is to not play the game and sit in a station with +4's/+5's to try to catchup in the sp rat race that so many new players see separating them from veterans. The game heavily rewards you for efficiency when it comes to your sp allocation. Attributes along with learning implants create a gameplay adversion, not a risk adversion. It is a system where the rich who do nothing win. EVE should be about fun risk, not a game of defend your mandatory learning implants so you can skill up fast enough to catch up and do what you want to do. I for one would love to not continue wasting jc timers and living by said timers in order to skill up at a decent rate.


    There is no SP rat race, it's only an SP rat race if you want it to be or perceive it that way. What you're saying is nothing other than "we should all start at lvl 90, the levelling system is a rat race and frankly it's not important. The only important thing is the end game because I'm one of those people who want to min-max, but without the min and I just don't understand how one could do well without being maxed out".

    Not we should all start at lvl 90. We should all progress to lvl 90 at the same pace. New players quicker perhaps.

    New players are affected most adversely by the current system. They are already behind in SP and that will forever be the case unless they purchase a character. To make matters worse, they are in less of a position than older players in being able to afford to replace lost learning implants when podded.

    Right now the system benefits veterans over newbies. It should be the opposite. No learning implants and an expansion on the learning boosters so they work for closer to a year (with diminishing returns over that time).



    - we all should get isk at the same rate too! No matter what you do, which choices you make, we all should get the same isk/hour. Older players had enough time to make isk so it's really for the benefit of new players that we all have the same income.

    - this whole racial ships thing is just terrible, if I train another race than you then that's just not cool, lets remove races and only have one left so we all train the same one. Older players had the time to train all four of them, new players haven't yet and it's just not fair.

    - everyone should be able to moon mine the cool moons, I mean older players have had the time to make friends something new players still have to do, this is clearly not fair and it would just be easier for new players if they could moon mine.

    - why can older players have the really cool ships (super caps are awesome yo), have all the friends and have had the time to conquer 0.0. Clearly this is not fair on new players, why can't they fly Titans. I'd say we remove all T2 ships, all capitals and remove corporations., alliances and whatnot. These are all unfair advantages older players have been able to build up over time which newbies obviously haven't yet.


    ALL PROGRESS AND CHOICES IN A SANDBOX MMO ARE CLEARLY A PLOT TO KEEP THE NEWBIES FROM PLAYING THE GAME!



    Oh wait, no. People can make choices just fine, they can choose to optimise min-max or they can choose not to; they'll still do fine.


    Do you realize that every response you give is a strawman/slippery slope and has nothing to do with what we are talking about?

    Uh, no, that isn't what I said. What I said is pretty plain and clear in the quote box at the top of your post. Pls no strawman/slippery slope/He wants WoW. The current system rewards establishing an expensive implant learning clone and gameplay adversion with faster progression than those who choose to play and are newer and can't afford to risk/buy implants just to skill up and a decent rate. This is bad. SkillIng shouldn't favor gameplay adversion. It should be even ground to those who actually undock and go out and have a blast. Rate of progression should never have pay-and-don't-play-to-win barriers, and that is what it currently is.

  • Once an Awoxer, Always an Awoxer? in EVE Gameplay Center

    Uh, shouldn't have problems joining a corp that isn't grabbage. I've done some things and I have never had a problem. Hell, currently I head up recruitment for my current corp.

  • Corp thief Zuzu Aqua Zahard Ignis Zula Terra Gentaros Beliar Gray ... in EVE Gameplay Center

    Now I am not a very smart man, but I have to say that I remain unconvinced that these fine gentlemen stand guilty of the accusations you present. Might I inquire if you are in possession of any screen captures that detail the event more thoroughly and possibly a complete listing of the ships stolen with fits and values?

  • I've gone too far. in EVE Gameplay Center

    Listen, I can't continue on like this any further. My time with EVE has been one of toxicity and hurting others. I painfully admit that I am a terrible player who does nothing but awox , safari, steal corps, scam, and lie. This is something that hurts me on the inside, because it isn't truly me as a person. I am even having trouble sleeping at night thinking of all of the people I have lied too, stolen from, and whose ships I have destroyed in the most dishonorable ways imaginable. I am so sorry. You all deserved to have so much more in your game experience than someone like me ruining your day and just betraying all of the trust you put into me when you invited me into your corporations. I know I can never hope to give back the parts of so many of you that I have taken in ISK and in spirit, but I will try. Please know that I am working hard to reform. From this day forth, I will never again engage in PvP and only plan to mine and mission purely for the sake of creating a positive environment and paying back all of those people who deserve their hard earned ISK back. This is it for me and how I plan on living out the rest of my days in EVE. It is hard though being alone. I was wondering if there was anyone out there who would be willing to take someone like me in? Like I said, I never intend to PvP again so please do not ask such of me. I can't bare the thought of hurting anyone again. I just want to be with a group who will accept me for who I strive to be and help me down my path of rehabilitation. Even if you can not offer such, words of comfort would really help me in my time of need.

  • Need Awoxing crew for revenge in EVE Gameplay Center

    You may want to consider just biomassing all of your characters and starting over at EVE, and I mean that in the most polite way possible. You are making a fool out of yourself with a post like this.

  • Psychotic Monk for CSM9 in Council of Stellar Management

    Having personally flown with Monk on many occasions, I can attest that there is not a single individual who can serve to represent this side of EVE who is as good a guy as him. People are quick to shoot him down as a person of zero moral integrity and character, but never have I felt more accepted and safe in terms of company than the times I have immersed myself in the communities Monk has fostered. Ruthless and competitive in game-play while accepting and quick to jump to the defense of anyone who is on the receiving end of anything that goes beyond spaceships; Monk is the kind of guy we need on CSM9 to bring high sec into a golden age of emergent content for all walks of life.
