Stats are mere numbers which you manipulate your own needs. They are only relevant if all measurement criteria and results are known to all.
I have gone from 5 accounts, soon to be none, well one alpha holding all my loot because sometimes you just want to relax and get away from all the ass hats in the game, and that is becoming more and more difficult. I don't judge though, CCP makes choices based on revenue, so I suspect my 5 subbed accounts are not as imporatant as the maybe 10 alpha greifers that now exists.
I know of many long time players stopping for the same reasons, EVE HAS CHANGED in the last year or 2. Only CCP can say if its for the better.

All the gankers quote that survey. What they ignore is it was only players who quit in first 14 days, hardly the targets a gankers goes for :)

You'd have to significantly nerf freighter HP to keep HiSec ganking balanced. Frieghter pilots outside HiSec and their escorts wouldn't thank you for such a change.

Ganking takes just as much time and gankers spend much much more than an incursion player on ships and fittings. Either all multiboxing is wrong or none of it is.

Oh please if we find a freighter it's getting either a blogs drop or a doomsday to the face. Simple fact is the reason why so many more die in highsec is because there thousands flying around in highsec for every one in null.

You missed out the other part where CCP stated less than 1% of people who cancel their subscription cite ship loss or harassment.

Why would you have to nerf freighter EHP, you make a statement and don't back it up with anything, freighter ganking is unbalanced at this point in the favour of gankers with bumping. Are you telling me seriously that gankers could not adjust for no bumping, hell I have seen them go after scam contract freighters and be very reactive. Your suggestion is that freighter gankers could not handle this when in fact they will be joining the rest of Eve. ShockedRoll

When the going gets tough the Gankers get their CSM rep to change mechanics in their favour.

No ganking is much easier.

Maybe PL with it's half a trillion dev dropped monocle events and ex-dev CEOs etc etc would drop it but you're average ganker doesn't have that sort of help so I imagine they'd find things a little more challenging. End of the day the ability to gank freighters and let's be honest any other ship one wishes without the associated risks faced by real pvprs oitside high makes ganking in high too easy, lucrative, and is not in the spirit of the game.

Several logi boats and webber for one freighter? It'd be easier to just remove freighters from the game if that was required because noone would use them anymore. Its not a fleet if it's in highsec and not at war, more like a gaggle, brood or perhaps a gobble :)

So, you obviously don't know why we have Freighters in the first place!

They were specifically designed to take completed Station/Outpost 'eggs' - via gates - all the way out to deep Null Sec.

What nonsense...

So nerf concord if it's getting in the way of you dealing with gankers.

It requires a fleet to kill a freighter in highsec but asking the victims to form a smaller fleet to defend is apparently too much to askRoll

Freighter ganking is balanced because of bumping. If you buff them by making them unbumpable, you'll need to nerf them to compensate. Right now freighter ganking is pretty balanced, possibly unbalanced in favour of the freighters.

How do you suggest that happens? Gankers will be in highsec as long as targets are, as long as players are. Gankers will be in highsec, in it's current form, until it is empty.

If you're rich enough to make killing you profitable, you shouldn't be in hisec.
This is getting so old, if people insist on living in hisec for so long, they attract that playstyle.
Therefore, no complaining, the problem isn't flies, it's all the garbage.

I try to stay away from mental gymnastics and twisting words, such things pain me. I offer only the truth, for it is the most potent of weapons.

Most of those who oppose ganking do nothing other than whine. I can count on my hand the number of people who have made a decent effort into stopping us, and the number of those that have put any research or thought into so that they actually achieve anything beyond making me use an insta-undock bookmark is even fewer. I don't take seriously any complaints about ganking from anybody who hasn't engaged in it or against it in any meaningful way beyond wailing about how unfair it is that ships exploded in a game about ships exploding.

I feel sorry for the poor wardecers who we gankers have once again deprived of their rightful tears. This post was made to be about noble wardecers, not ingenious gankers. And yet here we are, again being subject to wailing and moaning about gankers. It is once again up to a highsec content creator to show others the way, and get things back to the way they should be, in this case, a thread about wardecs and how they are encouraging player retention by engaging players in honourable space combat.

Grr marmite.

There once was a ganker named tisi

A stunningly beautiful missy

To gank a gross miner

There is nothing finer, cept when they get all pissy

Trolling is a defined as a post that is deliberately designed for the purpose of angering and insulting other players in an attempt to incite retaliation or an emotional response. Posts of this nature are disruptive, often abusive, and do not contribute to the sense of community that CCP promote.

Freighters are corp-level assets. As much has been asserted by the devs themselves repeatedly in the past. They are defenceless because the intention was always to encourage the use of an escort. Nothing has changed in that department. The fact that they can be used solo doesn't mean it's a good idea, just like ratting in a Moros or POCO bashing in a supercap solo is probably really dumb.

You seriously think that freighter ganking is balanced at this point with bumping as it is?

I just went to Zkill, I found a Charon freighter with three Caro expanders in Uedama with 12 Catalystrs on the kill and you seriously tell me that this needs to be nerfed, what to one catalyst? 12 Catalysts worth 11m each total value 132m, that lot could easily chase down a freighter trying to make a run for it along with a suicide blackbird to hold it. Seriously mate I have to laugh at you saying that it needs to be nerfed because it is too hard, define hard for me please it would be a good laugh...


And people wonder why I keep posting on this subject, I do it because it is comedy gold...

Max cargo charon is 182,580 EHP...
