I played from beta, nearly 6 years non stop, had a lot of fun… made a lot of friends… and real life got serious. So once RL calmed, i returned in 2014 for about 2 weeks… got wrecked constantly, lost nearly my whole fleet of ships… and put eve back on the shelf until about 3 days ago.
find out i cant mine any decent ore in .5 and up… so i hop to the closest .4
on my first run to grab some ore for a few blueprints (lets rebuilt my ships)… i get blasted instantly.
I guess i’m asking… whats left in this game for a guy like me? Back in the day we would at least ransom… i have loads of isk i could have dropped to spare the trouble of rebuild my last ship… but i was blind sided just like back in 2014.
With all the .5+ ore mined out and decent ore like kernite pushed to .4 and less… i guess all thats left for a solo player is running cargo? i’ve done that life and its more fun to mine, create, explore. Everything seems 100% controlled by some sort of mega group. I don’t think there is anything left in eve for me… maybe i’ll just go spin my isk on the replacement gambling system they integrated.
i’m just generally curious… is there anything left in eve without having to join some sort of mega corp? It makes sense why a dev messaged me the first day i returned to ask if i was having fun and drop some freebees. Its like he knew i was going to be wrecked instantly, and i think they are genuinely concerned about player retention. I’ve found both my returns less than entertaining.
o7, i read your replies but i fully anticipate an onslaught of juvenile -salt -tears comments.
