I literally can’t mine in this game anymore, I’ve been now for years and the effort we need to put in to mine with any affect on our industry goals are a complete shambles. I mean I get to any belt be it ice or asteroid and there we be NPCs that have cleared everything before I have even gotten out of bed or a single person with a group of multi boxers depleting the ice belt in 5 minutes flat every four hours.
I used to be fine with no NPCs and Ice belts that would not vanish but all these changes seem aimed at only one thing and that’s lining CCPs pockets with cash by encouraging/ soon forcing plex purchases.
If you really care about your players you will start thinking more about game play and customer satisfaction and not how you can achieve more profits.
I would love to hear a good reason why we are being prevented from mining the resources needed to play the game?
