    Hey Aaron take up that offer without delay.

    We are always helping to educate new players. Contrary to what AG does, which is sitting in a channel and crying about how unfair EVE is.


    Posting in what is now a CODE thread, actually you are starting to remind me of Aaron in a number of areas, or is Aaron reminding me of you in those areas, that is scary, say it ain't so...



    Ima is Aaron in drag.

    I don't actually make any attempt to hide them Aaron, as most have the same design behind their picture and were in my corp, anyone with a brain could have worked them out. Big smile

    You have got rather salty and are already throwing out blame for failure against me and Herzog, which is a bit sad.

    Aaron, just do it, prove me wrong by actions, personally I don't think you could lead your way out of a paper bag, but that is my opinion and opinions don't matter, results do. QuestionIdea




    But Aaron says we're elitists. I'm kind of liking this new sense of moral superiority.

    Aaron, stop being a drama queen and just follow your goals. I'm watching you get salty with people who agree with you, and it's deja vu all over again. If you go down this path again, you are only going to be a source of entertainment for others.

    Purely in evasion mode huh? Drac your manipulation won't work here.

It's clear you haven't bothered to read the whole thred, nobody here is trying to wind you up you have posted here of your own free will and I am responding to what you have typed because it is a venture I have founded.

    Like I just said if you want to comment here have the respect to actually read the thread properly and not skim through it. Otherwise mind your own business and stay out of mine.

    Furthermore, could you stop posting here please?, I'm not really interested in anything you're saying. nobody here needs your input. The sun has set on any kind of association we once had and there will be no going back.

    Good Bye Dracvlad!


    What manipulation, you are evading war decs using the game mechanics, i.e. NPC corps with a loose structure, seems reasonable to me. You talk about doing roams into low sec, but that is fine too, in fact I think taking hisec players into low sec if it is less heavily populated areas can be good experience for them and think that could develop their interest in doing PvP.

    Fighting the war dec entities head on is not smart unless you have a very good setup, so yep what you are doing is fine.

    I can post here if I want, just as you post commments in threads which I am active in, it is not as if I disagree with this approach, I just doubt you can actually do it, but would be happy to have you prove me wrong. As for any association, why would I do that, you have too many faults to be someone I could work with which I stated in another thread and have no desire to detail here.

    Good luck and just do it rather than talk about it Roll

    Aaron. You are doing it again. You do it every time. Just let go man. If you can just let go you would be successful in your endeavors. Once you show this side, there are people who will see it and want to get your goat with predictable results. I have worried about you in the past over this. Your ideas are great and you put a lot of thought into them. But your worst enemy is you.

    Let go, Aaron. Use the force™

    Good one, actually I'll change mine to this. To be able to play without random crashes and socket closures would be great. Used to run awesome on my computer.



    I'm having some oddball issue with the GTX video cards (2 of them) and Windows 10 whereby without warning the system just reboots and it's related to the heat in the video cards. I lost Geckos to this.

    In the beginning it was random and happened after a few days at a time, sometimes 1 week. After some big update last fall it happens within minutes of undocking every time. I last logged in as an alpha to move some stuff to give away and it was a race against time each attempt.

    Researching this issue shows that the cards and Windows 10 conflict this way. Since I have too many other hats on these days it's on the back burner. Might replace the cards one of these days, or maybe the whole system. No time for games anyway. I can come in here and shitpoast randomly and that's about it.

  • What is the general "health" of this game? Subs? New players, etc? in EVE Communication Center

    The game is the best it has ever been, warts and all. The devs and design team are doing a good job.

    A kind of "great malaise" hit around late 2014 and the game is still lingering under it. The game is not going to die, but it's showing age.

    And it has more to do with competition and options than anything else. One of the big draws for online gaming is customization of character and/or vehicles or equipment. Eve has always suffered from offering these beloved options while at the same time creating a need to grind for it. There was once a big blowup over expensive pants and monocles for example.

    But since around 2010-2012 even FPS games have been offering customization options that players like - and even with skill sets too, let alone being able to put say a punisher skull on your plane/ship/tank/etc.

    And without the grind and permaloss too.

    We can make ourselves feel good and go all "hurr durr quick gratification killing civilization we're doomed buy a water filter" mode in the light of players showing they don't want to "invest" in Eve. But in reality, it's all games and people want to play a game. The weaponization of boredom in Eve is what came to a head in 2014 and with the other options out there in the market, people would just rather have fun. It's their game time they get to choose.


    So the health of the game is static, and it's surviving. The MMO concept is becoming a dinosaur but the "product" of Eve is strong and has a fan base. If anything happens to the game it won't be around the proverbial "turning off the lights".

  • Just how complex is this game (for a new player)? in EVE Communication Center

    Pro tip:

    Trying to "min max" the game and know everything about it is futile and a waste of your time. It's too vast.

    Know only that which pertains to what you want to do. But do not attempt to know everything ahead of time. Do not get into that trap of "OMG I don't want to lose a ship I need to autistically know every last little detail!" mindset. Look up some guides on what in particular you are after, then get into a ship and do it. You will have more fun that way.


    That there are aspects of the game unseen by me after 10 years of playing is a good thing. Sucking up every last little bit of content and knowledge like some obsession is not how you play a game. Heck it's not even a game if you play it that way.

    Including. It's a fair price to pay.
    Quote:

    2) There isnt much space between T1s and specialised cruisers.
    Many are asymmetrically aligned with pros/cons for that specialisation.
    Doyldoesnt leave much space for a swiss-army knife.


    There is a 300 power grid difference between the thorax and the demos as well as several differences in bonuses. There is plenty of wiggle room to play with.
    Quote:

    3) What kind of PvE content could a T3C in your proposal comfortably run?
    What DEDs, escalations, WH content?


    Roughly the same as can be done with a navy cruiser.
    Quote:

    4) What about training time into a T3C?

    Not much change needed.
    Quote:

    5) Why should such a gimped cruiser not be able to cloak/null simultaneously?

    Because it makes it impossible to catch.

    1) Is it even possible to reduce the cost of a T3C and subsystems to a 40-50mil cost?
    Wont that utterly wreck the market?
    Why punish manufacturers/material sourcers?
    Who would even buy the POS ships your changes make of T3Cs?
    Would you buy one? For what purpose?

    2) PG is only one aspect of the existing differential between T1 and specialized cruisers.
    There are resist profiles, speeds, sigs, slots, etc that offer far more diversity across all cruiser classes, than the T3C in your proposal.

    3) VNI can run a 5/10 with extreme difficulty (probably several warp outs and drone losses) and looong completion time, forget about it with other navy cruisers. If the T3C in your proposal cant match even that, that relegates them to HS 4/10s which other cruisers can already run even better.

    WH activity would be limited to C2 at most, and even that is a stretch.

    4) Atleast, all T3C skills should be refunded (especially to stop extractor prices going through the roof)
    Only an idiot would skill into a T3C therafter, with no fleet use, and all other cruisers having better tank/dps to compete.
    EVE has never seen a class nerf as severe as the one you propose.
    You want to kill a class, just so you wont use them in fleet PvP.
    Its insane.

    5) After your change, T3Cs are a T1-Navy cruiser that cant even run any content in NS.
    Wtf are you afraid of?
    What are they going to do?
    Attack a miner in NS and gets hotdropped by your ton of potatoes?



    After your change, not even an idiot will run these ships in NS.

    Worse than that, nobody will use them AT ALL.

    Your change will not only kill the class, it will kill all the content it provides as well as the market that supplies it.

    All this, just so YOU WILL NO LONGER FIELD T3Cs IN YOUR NS FLEETS :D



    If the changes you propose go through, I propose that all T3Cs should thereafter be referred to as "Baltecs"
    Ie: Completely useless pieces of space trash that only an idiot would consider valid.
    PvP fleets wont want you.
    You can run HS 4/10s worse than a Pirate cruiser.
    Navy cruisers will kick your teeth in PvP.

    May that be your legacy.





    Won't this also kill reasons to go into wormholes and get the resources needed to build them? How many players whose "thing" is T3C production in WH now going the way of the blacksmith? Another era of abandoned WH structures...

  • Pre-game Rituals or even Superstitions? in EVE Communication Center

    I have a morning ritual that I'd like to share. I call it "the terminator". First I crouch down in the shower in the classic "naked terminator traveling through time" pose. With my eyes closed I crouch there for a minute, visualizing either Arnold or the guy from the second movie (not the chick in the third one because that one sucked) and I start to hum the terminator theme. Then I slowly rise to a standing position and open my eyes. It helps me to proceed through my day as an emotionless, cyborg badass. The only problem is if the shower curtain sticks to my terminator leg. It ruins the fantasy.

    Is there a realistic and fast path to PVP for new characters? Would love to hear from some experienced players on how new or returning players like me can get involved with PVP and actually be able to contribute to a fight. How long does it take to get to that point - 1 week, 2 weeks, a month, more?

    What's the most efficient skills and ships to train? Is it possible to stick with smaller ships and still be effective?

    Thanks everyone!

    But what makes it even funnier, is that I doubt baltec1 would have the stones to argue this crap unless he already knew what he is saying is already impending.

    That concerns me, and is suddenly no longer funny, for numerous reasons.



    Yeah when they get their CSM/dev buddies to yield they start the forum brigading ahead of times for the usual gaslight/red herring tactics. It's all part of the game to them. This is why a combination of getting rid of the CSM and forbidding players to become devs and devs to become players (even after leaving the job) would have helped back when it mattered.

    Once something seems rigged, it all appears pointless. It does not even have to be actually rigged. Just the appearance is enough.

    If you're going out to null to just explore, there's already the wormhole express.

    Escalation chasing is another story. That one says "go to X system within 24 hours." I've never chased a null escalation because the only realistic way to pass those null gatecamps with enough firepower to run the escalation is usually... cloaky nullified T3C, or maybe dotlan to find a wormhole within 10 jumps of the target system and hope you don't hit one on the way there.
    Or take an interceptor out and try to sell the escalation to someone just passing through. The last time I tried to sell an escalation, the locals thought I was trying to set them up to get hotdropped. Hmm...


    Its a false argument anyway, escalations are generally run by the people that own the space, the very same people who generally have the gatecamps and bubbled gates too.



    I have seen escalations go as far as 17 jumps. That's still safely behind your intel channels and choke points?
