Don't auto-pilot...? In a Rhea...? With 1 billion in assets in your cargo...?

Dear CCP,

I am writing to you regarding your large scale massively multiplayer online game called EVE Online, which I have been playing since 18th June 2006 on my main and since 14th June 2007 on my trading character. Recently, I haven’t been enjoying the game as I once did, this has been going on a while but then you introduced varies new features which kept me saying to myself perhaps this will turn it around. So I kept on renewing and trying new things out, including null sec, wormholes, exploration, mission running (boring by the way), mining (even worse) and recently factional warfare (well done on making a broken system even worse there with your recent patch). I was going to keep playing until I got a new computer in June and hope the improvement of graphic settings would keep me interested, but unfortunately the final nail was driven into my EVE coffin on the 19th April 2013.
What happen that day should of just been my usual end of week trading, where I go and collect various bits that have been made during the week (as I work full time) and return to Jita to sell them. On the return journey I decided to leave autopilot on to get me the last couple of jumps to Jita while I went to go make myself some dinner. When I came back I found myself docked, but then I noticed it wasn’t Jita and not in my ship. I had been in fact killed and podded in Ikuchi at 1.0 system one jump away from Jita. Then reason I am upset about this event is that it was my Rhea containing over a billion isks worth of items, a total loss in the region of 8 billion isk.
After I talked to one of the people that killed me I discovered that my ship had been stuck on the gate because Jita has reached it population cap (implemented by you because your server lacks the capacity to deal with the demand) and that Goonies, TEST and the rest had taken advantage of the situation to start popping stuck ships. This in my view make the responsibility lie in CCP for the various reasons:
1. Lack of capacity in Jita causing a large amount of ships (likely on autopilot) containing vast wealth to be stuck on the gates around the system.
2. The lack of effect of CONCORD in destroying large criminal fleets in a 1.0 system – which in make no sense when taking into account the supposed size and reasons for CONCORD in the story line and the fact it is in the Caldari states back yard.
As a result I raised a petition for reimbursement of my loss, which I was the sequentially told, was effectively “tough luck – games working fine”. As a result I have effectively lost hundreds of pounds in wasted subscription fees and thousands of hours of my life over 6 years. As I mentioned earlier this had driven the final nail in the coffin of my EVE life, which is a shame as when I started out in the game although it was far from perfect I had high hopes for the game.

Yours faithfully,

Matthew Lusted (aka Asith / k*********2)


Any grammar, spelling mistakes and suggestion appreciated. I will be sending it once I think its ready




OP SUCCESS

For every dumb idiot we get to quit the game, we get 5 new 0.0 players. we're increasing CCPs view to draw more people into low sec / 0.0 one dumb high sec pubbie at a time.

Your Rhea could be popped by 15 nados even without a Jita blockade. Autopliot is a bad choice anyway but for 8b some pirate gang would nuke the **** out of your freighter while aligning.
My advice: dont transport more than 1.5b per trip and don't log into highsec while burn Jita.

You poor dumb individual.

Almost the entire EVE universe knew Burn Jita was happening.. well at least those that were paying attention, yet you insisted to auto pilot your expensive Rhea to Jita! Really?

Get over it, and pay more attention to what is going on around you in EVE, as you may discover a whole new dimension to a game you have been playing for many years it seems.

The fact is the game has returned to what it was in 2003. Ineffective Concord, all the advantage goes to whoever attacks first...and so on. Whatever solution CCP created in that day did not scale up with the number of players coordinating these attacks. Furthermore, tier 3 battle cruisers brought us ships with 8 large turret slots (something that used to be exclusive to the Apocalypse and tier 3 Battleships) and the scanning resolution of a cruiser (lets not forget those damage bonuses too!). The result is that coordinated groups of players can inflict disproportionate damage to non-war targets at a fraction of the cost it used to be.

Even sec status is quickly recouped in the safety of null sec space. We're back to the days where concord meant nothing and players docked up when m0o was sighted in their region. People are not asking for a return of Concord Special Ops, but Concorde response should scale up with the problem that exists today. With the 'safety' feature preventing people from making stupid mistakes, anyone who gets a sec status below -5 and grind it up and drop it again and so on have clearly established how they want to play the game. Why wouldn't concord respond with a system that makes it harder for repeat offenders to gain sec status. Why not make sec status increase simply a function of time (e.g. statue of limitations) instead of being something that people grind up and rinse and repeat.

A key difference is that you were literally able to tank CONCORD in 2003

Dear Asith

While I express sympathy for your loss, i can not take responsibility, nor offer any compensation as i have spent all my money on Tornados.

I can not believe that during 7 years of play, that you did not know that bad people exist and can kill you in high-sec. I can not believe that past year, you have never heard of an event called "Burn Jita", during which CCP posted official travel advisories. But most of all, i can not believe that you have not heard of "themittani.com", the finest source of all news in EVE. Had at any time, you visited the fine website, you will have found information regarding this event, which would have saved your ship, and prevent any losses you might have taken. Information is the most valuable commodity in EVE, and there is no better source of information than our fine establishment.

Sincerely

Nah it's fine as it is.Just make sure you can't biomass a char that has negative sec stat is enough for me.

Plays since 2006, apparently never heard of suicide gankers, has never been to Jita on weekends, slugs 8 bil JF around, puts on autopilot, complains and blames CCP.

I tried to feel sorry for your loss, I really did.
But you finally got what's coming to you.

Dear OP,

CONCORD pilot speaking. Sorry about that. I gave it a crack but I wasn't quick enough. I'll give you a couple hundred isk me and the other pilots at the cantina put in our hats around for you.
Have a good one and enjoy playing EVE Online. Will be quicker next time.
