What do you think should be done about the New Player Experience to help with player retention? You mentioned not wanting new players to grind for PLEX to sub their accounts, but you didn't say much else about the NPE.

I think that players should use the trial to actually try the game. The metagaming is so hard that we aren't likely going to let trials in in most corps or alliances, sadly. But this said, the tutorials or something else should have a way to showcase the game better to the newbros.

EVE is a dynamic place, it is not only killing the same rat a million times before you are done, it is not only about rocks. Many newbros are fooled into thinking that missions and mining are the best thing to earn money as a newbro, and they stick with that until they give up because grinding 800M as a newbro is hard.

But there is a lot of stuff just to try out there. Why aren't we showing them? Exploration, wormholes, ninja-gas mining, even getting eyes over one of those huge fights that come up into the social media, whatever. EVE is a real living thing, made up by players, it breathes and it is amazing, but we have to show them how amazing it can be without having to wait weeks or months or forever until they suddenly make into a corp that does that kind of stuff.

EVE is a game about meaningful decisions but you can't decide without knowledge and without anything to compare. Take a newbro into nullsec. Have him die to a gatecamp. Give him another ship and teach them to be careful. Show them to use dscan and stuff to venture into the deep space without being completely alone or relying into having luck.

New Player Experience is showing them why we love this game despite all the huge wall that the learning curve is. We don't need a flat learning curve either, but many things can be improved the first two weeks of a character that can dramatically change the decision to subscribe or to leave forever because "Lol grinding internet spreadsheets online" etc.

I don't hate miners.

Don't want them out, murdered or anything but I think that mining makes new people stuck themselves and missing a huge part of the game which is sad.

Do you want to mine while you are not there? For hours just because it is a very poor way of making Isk?



Well that sure is a relief.

Knowing you don't want miners "out, murdered or anything". Right now I'm feeling the sort of gratitude that was likely felt by lepers in medieval times on hearing the new local lord wasn't going to burn down their camp and drive them over a cliff and into the sea.

And go right ahead promoting the idea that miners spend all their time magically mining afk for hours on end. The secret must be in one of those guides to making isk in Eve I keep seeing ads for.

No one I know has ever subscribed to Eve because they got all excited about being a miner. But a lot of people do get drawn in because of the opportunity make stuff. Some of those folks like to make stuff in small groups or on their own and derive pleasure from resource gathering themselves and that requires a LOT of time spent mining. But when you've churned out your manufactured item the mining grind seems worth it and whether as a corp, group or individual you get to experience a real sense of achievement.

Oh, and believe it or not a lot of us miners do things other than mine. This is my 10th year in Eve and I'm still happy.
So no need feel sad on my behalf

I respect people that decides the way they want to play a game of meaningful choices. I don't like botters and I don't like to see noobs sticking to mine without knowing anything else just because no one bothered showing them.

It isn't a free choice if you only know a very small piece of the spectrum of choices.

Mining ore is arguably the worst isk source but it's trivial to escalate horizontally. I don't have an issue with low income low attention game play but I would like to see more content like ninja gas mining where you risk a venture to get in 15 min what a mackinaw gets in one hour.

As I said before, I signed the occupancy-sov proposal so there is that. I do like the “El digin’s solution” back in a few months ago.



Look at the names in that post. Such history.

2012 was a great year in nulsec. HBC had 14,000 proud sperging assholes all shooting the crap out of each other the south.

Eve-O isn't just about ships balancing, power projection, economics, and meta-gaming spies. Its also about the ties and friendships we form with other players that transcend alliance or coalition boundaries. I think Migui knows something of that.

The CSM needs a member that knows what its like to go from major powerhouse to utter bottom of the barrel, and the long climb back out of irrelevance. He also has a stable personality and a dislike of drama, unlike certain other candidates. If you are a member of TEST you should be voting for this guy. Even if you're not, you should still vote for him.
