Barges near obsolete?


(Solstice Projekt) #41

The only reason why you claim that is because you’re not using it properly. if you did, you’d be perfectly safe. What a sad excuse of a real miner you are. (blindly assuming you’re a miner, because most miners say nonsense like this)

And to all the braindead people … no, “afk” is not a playstyle.


(Solonius Rex) #42

You could just as well make the argument against mining in an orca because you could disconnect and get ganked while you werent online, thus losing a far more expensive ship.

In other words, that may be a reason for you not to jetcan, but its irrelevant to the conversation at hand.


(DrysonBennington) #43

Once you fly an Orca you won’t want to fly a barge again. The large cargo hold volume makes the Orca an ideal ship to mine in and then just stare at the screen watching the drones mine.

Yep there they go again back to the rock…oh here they come back to the ship again…back to the rock…back to the ship…no wonder miners go crazy.

Thus making it the perfect afk mining ship. I am not surprised you find it as the best ship to mine with.


(Abyrr Lemmont) #45

Hulk/Covetor are my favs. I love my orca but I honestly forget the drones do much work because the two other accounts fill the hold up so fast using a those barges. Maybe that starts to even out once I get augmented drones.


(DrysonBennington) #46

So, its my style of game play. Who are you to tell me or bully me into playing the game that I pay money to play to fit your style of game play?


(Jennifer Austin) #47

Barges are still relevant in a lot of places like code really active has been a recent gank in the system I’ll take out my barge over my porpoise or orca because they’re the cheaper pill to swallow losing a barge then it is to lose a porpoise or an orca


(Solonius Rex) #48

With my blasters.

Might makes right in EVE online.


(Anderson Geten) #49

we are on forums, not in the game. Your weapon is useless here.


(OId SouI) #50

Eww mining (obligatory)


(Solonius Rex) #51

And, what. You think we are talking about using mining barges in real life?

Were talking about the video game. So yes, my weapons are quite useful, inside the video game of Eve online, which we are discussing.

Please, learn to follow the discussion at hand.


(Anderson Geten) #52

and he is talking to you on a forum.


(DrysonBennington) #53

Solonius Rex can’t discern between the reality of in game mechanics and posting on a forum. He believes that his words are creating some action of a weapon that then fires a round on the forums the same that he presses a key on his key board.

Get help with that issue.

Barges are not obsolete. Barges actually came into play after mining characters wanted ships that actually mined instead of fitting mining lasers to a battle cruiser to then mine in.
