Disclaimer: I’m not affiliated to any NS, LS, HS or WH corp, I’m just a care bear that run L4’s. Believe or not I need to put this out the way, this post is not gonna be nice.
Title should be enough, but I’m going to explore why Safety Corp is OKAY and is CCP fault the fact newbros leave too soon.
CCP should do a better job with the NPE, at no moment the new player is informed about the game philosophy, that leads to people that transform EVE into their second jobs and expectation that are not in conform with game design.
Every capsuleers should experience at the tutorial of being ganked by 2 stronger ships scramming and webbing him, followed by an explanation that EVE is a dangerous environment.
It hurts me to keep seeing new players being ganked by Safety and being cool about it, BUT they all say the SAME DAMN THING: “I WAS NOT INFORMED”. It’s not Safety or any other party to inform new players about the universe of EVE, it’s a obligation of the owner.
The amount of people that hates ganking are self entitled people that assume too much about what they don’t know. I cannot make you stop being such assumptions, I can only point you the way of enlightenment. Treating EVE as a second job or just accumulation riches will only lead to a crack in your personality and one that will follow you in RL unfortunately. Abandon this thinking for your sake, the amount of aggressiveness when you lose a ship is NOT a healthy response, this will influence your RL.
Don’t assume anything, don’t expect you ‘truth’ to be the truth. the only truth is “IF IT’S LEGAL, EXPECT IT TO HAPPEN”, and become a happier player. It does not matter why you were ganked, it only matters how you respond, it’s your life and your time after all!
I gotta say, when I first envisioned this post, it was supposed to be a bash at Safety and CODE, but after seeing how many stuff is ■■■■■■ up in this game, how many bots are killed, how many AFK people and other kind of stuff, I realized the small percentage of baddies in Safety is a small price to pay for the only resistance against “World of Warcraft” mentality. And I support it!
I’m not here to say: “Buy a permit”. I’m here to ask you, “why do you mine?”, “why do you undock that Marauder if you don’t even know how to play?”. The cold and harsh truth is, because you are self entitled, you think it’s some natural right to do any ■■■■ you like and have it your way. WELL IT COULD BE TRUE AND FINE, BUT…
But my little uneducated friend, EVE is a game and games have their MONEY PRINTER working on the other side of the EQUATION, meaning in EVE the inflation is not in the hands of politicians, but in the hands of players, and letting you (the bot aspirant) to print ISK without no real effort is a prejudice to mine and all others gameplay, you are inflating the economy (by ignorance or whatever) and projecting a bad game environment for everybody that cares about the game.
That’s why it’s needed to keep your abyssals, deadspace, ratting, mining and all other stuff under check, MOSTLY when you try to do it without any effort.

Praise CODE, praise James 315.
