I know I don't. Have been very demotivated since the change and hardly logged on.


Chased around a Moa cepter gang in my solo mega twice and had great fun doing it. Content hasn't been this easy to come by for years.

Have you caught any? (let me answer that: no, they are ******* interceptors)

It's great that you are having fun, but you are really easy to entertain. As long as it involves Megathrons, you seem to be happy.

We also had fun being chased around. We've never seen so much Goon activity in Pure Blind. Surely making Goons start to use this region which until recently was almost completely empty is a good thing and what Fozziesov intended.

I think the difference is he doesn't need to roam in a hundred plus fleet for pvp and have FC make all his decisions for him which as an opponent I respect.

Not tears actually.. far from it.. simple boredom from working with fail mechanics.... That's where I am.. I do my DED plexes, I do my "re-entosising" Other than that.. no decent content improvement at all..

I flew through Vale two days ago and half the LAWN and BSTN system had zero indices across the board, so if you are not using the space why care if someone comes and takes it?

Fozzie SOV is such fun!

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

I want to amend this.

I think I found your problem...

To add to that: the new system is meant to decide who owns the grid, nothing else. The team that holds the grid holds the node, it's as simple a system as could possibly have been imagined.

The fact that you can't deal with a single interceptor on a node means that you don't have control of the grid and thus don't deserve to own it.

So it's taken 2 pages for this thread to arrive at "entosis links should probably require battleship fitting."

Would putting say a 10 ship fleet on every node not work?

Of course, I still don't understand why anybody would let a structure (other than a TCU) get reinforced anyways, when it takes one defender per structure to counter one sov-troll during the window.

I admit, I may not understand the mechanics completely.

How the hell can't you get a single cepter? what is hard about killing cepters? Oh they ran away. Doesn't that link thingy have a max range?

It's almost like you want to be spoonfed fights rather than creatively adapt to the new meta. I'm quite impressed with the nullbears tears these changes have caused.

Awesome job CCP. More nerfs please (to high sec too).


Because whack a mole is fun?

Nobody ever gave two figs for what a couple of frigs did to each other in the backendass of nowhere. Eve has always grown because of the big events such as the br fight which lead to news coverage which lead to new subs. Now, folk say adept, split up your fleets, etc . . . but all that does is lead to boring ass repetitive content, that doesnt allow for people to feel they are part of an event. There has been no spike in no users, or folk returning to the game. Thus Fozziesov has likely already failed.

I don't play, I just fourm warrior.
