Its a player vs player event so its pvp.

...and really, have you actually brought a shotgun to a petting zoo? People freak out and go crazy, for one, and that scares the animals. You start getting some shots off and I guarantee hitting targets will get a lot harder right away.

For those who wondered about the kill. It was a badger something, he blackmailed me first, 200m or pop,


lol, I'm sorry that made me laugh.. some "pirate" really tried to random a badger one for 200 million? What were you hauling a PLEX? that's funny... and stupid.

Now, while I sincerely hope that your interpretation is correct, I got the impression that he was getting ransomed for 20 minutes by a Badger while he was in his Retriever. Ugh

In a game driven by people, you're going to have to deal with people.

Go herp derp somewhere else you anti-social recluse.

Dealing with people is great, dealing with morons is annoying, having to deal with morons is the bit I don't care for. And if I'm expected to pay money for it, I'll choose, and I chose not to (although briefly I considered to play a moron too and just randomly shoot at people, but then that sounds awefully boring, and believe me mining already was boring).

PS: and it's not that I had anything worth while looting, may 1k cubic meters of some ore. After some trash talk later he even gave me 10 times its value, guess he got scared I get him banned for blackmailing me in the first place (come to think of it, may be it isn't allowed by CCP after all).

Now I know you're trolling. Too many lies and ridiculous statements.

Nope, he just gave it to you out of sympathy.

What he did wasn't blackmail per-se, it's ransoming and has been a part of EVE for years as pirate have done.

But yeah the fact of the matter is:
A) Mining is already boring on it's own, removing the "morons" really isn't going to make EVE that much more fun.
B) The only way to stay truly safe is in station, ever heard of hulkageddon? It's essentially a thing where people suicide gank hulks. And suicide ganking is killing the ship before concord even gets there. The only way to really avoid it is to not be a target in the first place or to GTFO when so see someone show up in the belt that might be shady.

In EVE you need to treat high sec like on the outskirts of the inner city. So bad people still around but there is at least some police around to keep things civil for the most part, but just like in IRL you can get beat up and charge the guy for assault....but your pride is still hurt no matter what.

The people that mine in EVE are the stereotypical nerds of a high school that dropped into trashcans and shoved in lockers. The best advise we can offer is to not be one or to be smarter about it.

Oh and besides your first problem being that you were mining in the first place, your second problem was that you kept local closed. Why would you do that? It tells you who else is in the system with you, gives you the occasional nice person to talk with (I myself occasionally say hi in starter rookie systems) and would have alerted you to that guy that killed you.
