Oh come on. Not once in the history of mankind anyone believed this one ever. So it´s not a myth.
Cool

I got lost in thought... it was unfamiliar territory.

CONCORD is attacking outlaws in highsec, as soon as they enter/undock.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

Hit the rat with the hat first. Oh, wait, wrong game.

How about "you need at least 10M skill points to make it in nullsec". That's definitely my favorite.

Nice alt name :-)


Highsec is NOT safe.

For this is to be true, it would mean highsec is unsafe and it isn't.
It's not 100% safe but it is NOT unsafe. I don't feel unsafe when flying in highsec.

EvE = Everybody vs Everybody

For this to be true, it would imply that everyone is willing to shoot at everybody and they don't.
Player A might want to shoot player B but player B might not have the desire to shoot play A even though he / she is playing EvE.
Players who think this is a legit statement might confuse it with; ME vs Everbody (is like ME).

risk vs. reward

That more risk necessarily implies more reward.

Not true; as risk is not a build-in game feature. It is an emotion and not a constant, whereas rewards in most circumstances is a game feature and a constant. The circumstances where rewards are not a constant it stop being a reward and turns into a gamble (luck), at which point risk as a concept is annihilated.

Hey now, this man knows what he is talking about. He has almost 150 kills/losses and it looks like all of them are gate camp ganks. Smile

It's hard to find that kind of depth of experience outside of say a grade school or a convent.

Mine is probably that corp CEOs are in it to profit off the grunts via corp taxes.
