This is the first comment about the game on Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197998741505/recommended/8500/
Did you read it? I suffered the same. Went to a corp, got ganked outside of Amarr (I was in a shuttle… who ganks a shuttle?) and realized that, if you’re in ANY corp, you WILL be wardecced by pirates. Help from the Help Channel went something like: “This is EVE. Trade in Hek”. For a newbro, trying to have a constant income to afford loses, who wants to build things and sell them in Jita or Amarr, this is not possible/desirable. So, what do you do? You leave the corp you’re into, of course. Get into the NPC corp (where most people are just drop into and don’t share anything in common) and then you’re playing a single player game. And you leave it, after some time.
Is that desirable? I guess the new PvE content is addressed to PvE players. Then give us what we want! Give us PvE corps that can be subsidiaries of NPC corps (as a lore justification) and can ONLY build structures on high sec and (most importantly) can’t be declared war upon or declare war. All the traders, miners, PvE explorers, builders, haulers, etc. will finally have a place to join other people with our same way of thinking.
Do you want new people to fight in fleets, like most of us do, without risking everything and having to forfeit PvE missions and live in null sec as a drone for big corps? Then give us PvE corps, where we can organize ourselves to fight PvE content in fleets. Where we can have marks of honor in our ships for each “big boss” defeated. Where we can fight NPC fleets like if they were a puzzle, where we have to figure out or have an excellent strategy to defeat them (Like most bosses in RPG games). Give us exciting settings with exciting enemies (or combination of enemies, like in D&D encounters).
Do you want to keep new people by making them socialize as soon as possible? Give us PvE corps, where they can safely explore the game they have and we can teach them the ropes, without being abused by the big corps and sent to null sec without ever seeing an agent or an incursion.
Please, make it so. It’s so very frustrating wanting to socialize and fight in big battles, having to beg in fleets with no corp so we are not being chased by pirates. The idea it’s a merge between an NPC and a PC controlled corp, with limitations so it can’t be abused by PvP players.
It’s just an idea, but it’s something very missed and lacking, if you want to cater to PvE players. You can even hear the latest “Talk in Stations” podcast where old and experienced players “almost” invoke the same idea. They ALL know this is something very needed but, for some reason, it’s not in the game.
Thank you for the new PvE content, but please, let us be PvE players.
Thank you in advance.
