What was your motto anyway?

"We don't want to ruin the game, we love the game, we want to ruin the game for you".

What? That implies we'd harm ourselves just to harm you.

No, the motto is "Internet Spaceships. SERIOUS BUSINESS MINING OP NOW NOW NOW!! DPS ON THE GATES, DROP BUBBLES !!"

Or just "Internet Spaceships. SERIOUS BUSINESS"

L2P ?

Once you think you have it all, you have actually become ignorant towards everything else.

You are talking about bots in highsec, what would you suggest in regards to the bots in null-sec?
Some people told me that 95% of bots actually are fielded mostly in those area's.

That figure (or indeed any other given figure) is pretty much impossible to back up, of course.

I have returned from posting exile to carry the banner of ganking once again. Now, more than ever, it is critical to know to what extent the highsec candidates support botting and wish to leave it unpoliced.

This is exactly why new players leave the game, instead of trying to pick on highsec carebears then perhaps CCP should make PVP more available. LIke battlegrounds, ladders etc.. More 0.0 NPC regions, etc. Seriously we need to start preserving the new players..

Precisely, we must make pvp more avalible. Suicide ganking, an interesting and fun pvp activity unique to EVE, is a great way to start: newbies learn the basics of fitting effective tanks, or learn how to fit gank ships to do their own suicide ganking. It is merely a lack of imagination and vision that prevents highseccers from seeing how much better suicide ganking makes highsec.


Wouldnt fixing faction warfare be a place to start. I don't think ccp will ever make it easier to gank people in high sec but they have ways open to them to get more people to pvp.

Despite what this thread may or may not have started as it has come up with atleast two good ideas in my opinion... those being 1.) Making it easier to clean up offlined poses( such as after one to two months of being offlined the pos becomes either free to shoot or hackable to change ownership) and for idea 2.) make lvl 4s require actual teamwork of say 2-5 people instead of being soloable (even the Mittani has stated that incursions are preferable to lvl 4s because they encourage teamwork and discourage botters.) Now as for botting as a whole i dont think ganking is the appropriate answer ( i used to then saw the displacement from the icecapades that occurred) people do eventually wise up and if they come back home one day to see thier ship has gotten blown up for the 5th time that week most of them (or atleast some of them) are just going to move to a new location for a while however i also dont think "minigames" are the answer, granted those two times a month i mine it would be slightly more interesting.

I just realized i havent given an idea on how to end bots yet...

well the increase in misson difficulty to require multiple people "could" help in that regards and as for mining well perhaps make it harder to find the asteroids something like more belts but less asteroids per belt so you would have to constantly scan down a new belt after say every cargohold or two or npc miners that you actually have to compete with for the ore and blowing up the npc would bring about a concord response...

tl;dr make the activities harder not the ships weaker

Oh, Do go on... no seriously ive got nothing better to do then listen to all the petty arguments and feeble trolling attempts... 

The sad thing is i'm not sure if i'm telling the truth.
