Wow... The amount of butthurt from multiboxing miners in this thread O.o

So you finally face a small chance of losing some of your ships and can't mine in complete safety?

With CCP delaying the implementation, I really hope they are not caving to the amount of whine in this thread.

Explosions need to happen for the economy to go around. If you can mine in complete safety and warp whenever something appears in local, then that is a flawed mechanic.


Multiboxing or not, i think it would be retardely annoying removing it in the way it's today.

Mining is boring and you win far less money than rating in NULL SEC.

This change will make mining just a bit more dangerous and very less profitable:
- no fleet warp to BM means more time to reach the asteroids (especially at the end of the belt)
- it will still be possible to instant warp the full fleet to the rorqual in POS when hostile appear in local

Finally I'm pretty sure this change will make less target for you the hunters, but the few rabbit in belt will still be safe...

More mouse click, less money, I'll rather stop some accounts and back to high sec.

I agree, Mining is an utterly boring occupation in EVE, Hours of grinding roids for little return, target for anyone with the stones to go hunting them and butt of eons of jokes from all.....That is all except those that engage in it as a profession in EVE.

The assumption I see being expressed here in this and many others threads is that Miners are in some way wrong for what they do, that simply by not engaging in PvP they should not be allowed to play EVE, result no matter what they do to improve there lot everyone and his dog rides over the hill waving flames regarding them, yet in doing so they provide little or no back up for there accusations and inferences, simply troll for trolling sake mostly.

CCP on the other hand have little regard for this niche in EVE, ...Butt hurt, interesting term but in reality far from the facts,

Truth is that CCP approached the problem of ISBOXER in my view from the wrong angle, instead of banning it they should have encompassed it as an add-on to EVE, licensed the software and if that proved impossible, write there own version, in this manner they could have complete control over how it was used, were and when and on what ships, for this CCP could rightly charge a fee.

Oddly they could also done this with things like EVEMON and similar utilities whats surprising is why they have not done it.

Whatever happens regarding multi boxing over all, banning ISBOXER outright like they did has had ramification to EVE far beyond that expected I suspect and has not benefited EVE in anyway.

Humanity is the thin veneer that remains after you remove the baffled chimp.
