  • Concord in EVE Communication Center

    Should not happen to a paying customer who don't accepted pvp at least not in high....concord should respond THE SAME SECOND with an 100k alpha on the attacker or an autodestruct of the attacker would help too or CCP should make unsanctioned attacks impossible(in high).....

    So many possibilities to protext normal people from this PVP nonsense...
    They logged in to a PvP game, that's your acceptance of the possibility of PvP happening to them right there.

    That changes nothing.

    Every idea you post shows an astounding ignorance of how the game works and in many cases would consume dev time better spent elsewhere.

  • PVE - Fewer, tougher, and more player-like in EVE Technology and Research Center

    I think you'll like the direction CCP is taking although they will be spending several months dialing in the AI behaviours with special events like the Blood Raider shipyards before extending it to missions and anomalies. That is expected to be part of the winter expansion.
    It's about time too.

    Define "used to be". Are we talking about some point a few weeks ago, before the last time you got ganked? Or are we talking about the early days of the game, when it was possible to tank CONCORD and corps set up 23/7 gatecamps in market systems and killed everything that jumped in?
    I will take a shot at this one. I started in 2009 there were less than 1/4th the number of characters hanging about in usual choke points and Jita (even though there were more characters online) than there is now so in that way the answer is yes there has been a steady increase in ganking, at least in some specific areas of space over the years.
    There were more "criminal activities" to engage in in 2009, now those activities no longer exist the people, that have remained in Eve, who engaged in them have gravitated towards the main one which is left, ganking.

    Then hulkageddon happened and the number of gankers multiplied by several orders of magnitude, yet when that event officially ended after several years run the number of gankers did not decrease by any significant amount so again the answer is yes there has been an increase in ganking over the years.
    The number of habitual gankers didn't increase by several orders of magnitude with hulkageddon, many of the people who took the aggressive role in those events were merely taking a break from their usual activities. Nor has ganking increased over the years, in fact despite the process of ganking a ship now requiring more players than ever before, less people appear to be doing it; as evidenced by the fact that Concord, who kill each and every aggressive participant in a gank, are killing less of them than they have at any time in the past.

    You lot never learn.

    I believe you are as wrong here as you could possibly be.
    CCP watches ganking fairly closely because of it's potential to be devastating to their cash flow and on many occasions CCP has not liked what they see so they have stepped in to nerf the ganking game play style, yet you and many others blame the targets of those ganks for those nerfs. The nerfs that have happened in the past and any that may happen in the future are the direct result of the gankers actions, and those gankers are 100% responsible for those changes, so man up and admit it then and only then will you be able to put the entirety of the situation into proper perspective. Oh and always remember CCP is a company in business to make money, the game of EvE is the vehicle they chose to do it with and when a game play style threatens their cash flow you can count on them to make changes to protect that cash flow even if it means nerfing a popular game play style.
    I believe otherwise.

    The people I speak of are the ones that have persistently lobbied CCP into changing the game to suit them, either by essentially removing activities by dint of mechanics changes or by making them harder to carry out.

    It inevitably backfires when the target audience of those nerfs adapt to the changes and up their game, which in turn leads to calls for more nerfs.

    I think that line hasn't drifted much since launch, but what was sporadic 10 years ago has become far more organized, so maybe that line should be reconsidered.


    I think you don't remember the early days very well, since organized 23/7 suicide ganking was a thing back then too. IIRC the only time when it wasn't a thing was when you could tank CONCORD, and it was just plain ganking without the suicide.



    Its more organized that it used to be.

    Who is to blame for that?

    Being organised is a necessity for them these days, due to the numerous nerfs that have been implemented against them by CCP at the behest of people like the OP.

  • Why is CCP spending so much time on rehashing content? in EVE Communication Center

    Collectively eve players tend to shoot down lots of CCPs more imaginative ideas because they don't want their area of the game affected. Most first reactions to a piece of news are just "oh great, how does this make my daily gameplay more of a chore', to me this means we have the wrong people playing, or at least those playing are in a poor mindset.

    It is tough but not so tough, eve is a space game, wormholes are a good example of an expansion. Wormholes are real(?) things that exist in space and through playing this we get experience with them. Players have been asking after the Jove for over a decade so that would be a logical place to go, when CCP do though they need to get it right with new interesting mechanics and resources. I would personally prefer they look more at the rogue drones but that's just my opinion.



    You ante kidding eve players shoot down every ideal that players bring up in the ideals/features, there is no pleasing many eve players no matter what except when it supports one type of play style, blood lust, when it comes to that they go ape, anything else gets shot down that I've seen in my years in eve, anyway, that's my thought.
    The reason that 90+% of the ideas in F&I get shot down is because they're often repeats of prior posts, poorly thought out, easily exploited, have no place in Eve and are generally just shite.

    I'm sorry to tell you that this isn't the way it works IRL, at least in the UK. If you cancel a policy before the contractual period is up insurance companies can, and often do, keep your entire premium if you paid up front; if you pay in installments they'll charge you for the privilege of cancelling, sometimes that charge is the same as the total of the remaining payments.


    And this is why insurance companies, and insurance salesmen are the lowest scum on earth. (even below lawyers and politicians)
    Are you including bankers, secondhand car salesmen and real estate agents in your scale of scumbaggery?

    Cant tell if you are serious or not. Calculating volume by hand every time you scan is redicolous.
    Totally serious, in fact you only have to do it once for each ore. Make a note using the ingame notepad of how many units of each kind of ore you get in a cycle, and how many cycles it takes to fill the hold for that ore type and refer to it.

    Or is that too much effort to expend in what can be an otherwise pretty effortless task?

    You would think basic things like that the Survey Scanner would do, the information is not hidden anyway.
    The survey scanner works just fine, your lack of willing to expend effort processing the information it gives is the problem.

    The irony of this is that there would be next to zero gankers if it did happen. As its Concord held space low sec status will just get you concorded on jump in or undock.



    Not really, faction police in Concord space, still acts like faction police will not concordokken you, they follow same pattern as any other empire faction police.
    Can you farm beat them or farm them? If no they aren't faction police but Concord.

    You dont even realise i use the Ore Scanner. The problem is the descrepancy between the miner tooltip and the survey scan results. Miner tooltip is in m3, but the survey scan result is in raw amount of ore. The survey scanner should display m3 as well.
    Why? You already have the tools needed to calculate this.

    -Gameplay-wise, Hek is a nice spot for miner/freighter ganking, due to the slow faction police response time.
    Are you confusing faction police with Concord? The former goes after people with low security status or bad standings, the latter reacts to suicide ganks.

    As for the security status of Hek, it's fine as it is, Jita is far worse for getting blapped in.

    It's also worthwhile talking to the folks that kill you if it's a small fight, you'll pick up all sorts of interesting tips and knowledge by doing so; it's a good way to meet people and kill them later if you can Twisted, or get recruited. A good attitude to loss will take you far.

    It's not exactly hard to refrain from posting on the forums, if the OP can't control his posting urges I suggest that he biomass's and donates his stuff to a worthy cause.

    Noob question - why would you make 3 or more insta-undocks? Since they are generally straight in front of the station, aren't they all in the same place pretty much? ...

    Unless range matters? Maybe do 250, 500, and 1,000 km ?

    Don't be lazy. You want your insta undocks to be well off grid.


    What's the proper minimum distance to ensure I'm off-grid?
    10,000 km+, grids can be 8000 km across since they were changed in 2015.

    Edit~ it turns out that they may be much bigger depending on the local environment and whether or not grid-fu is being used
