I’m a new player on Eve Online, and I wanted to get a discussion going on the frequency of 10 year veterans declaring war on small (newbro) high sec mining corps.
I know that some people who think they are lions hunting wounded gazelle when they gank a new player in their venture, will be upset with this post. (those players are just unable to PvP against other players with similar experience or skill levels., and are desperate to not be the victim for once, i get it)
but I had the idea that CCP should add a PvP check box to either engage in PvP or to opt out of it for small new alliances and corps, regardless of having a station.
I think the limits should be something along the lines of::
Alliances and Corps, who have less than 100 members, and less than 4 stations (ALL of which and ALL offices of which must be located in High Sec)
As a member of a new player alliance, I can say with 100% confidence that 95% of the players i’ve seen quit the game, are not only new players, but they quit specifically because the lack of options for a new player
it is not possible to compete with a high sec ganker crew of 100 loki’s war dec’ing your group of 10 miners… most new players cannot even set up a jump clone… so after being “undock camped” 10 times in a row in their pod by the group of 100, ten year veterans, in their tec3 cruisers, the new player is faced with few options:
1.) join a null group with 35,000, sign over all info to a ESI 3rd party check site, and beg them to come attack the guys who killed you, have them call you a spy, and then have them tell you that your goals dont matter because they have their own goals, that they now need you to help with.
2.) the player could give up having their own alliance, and spend the next 4 years mining in high sec trying to meet other new people, staying in the NPC groups, getting ganked only by NPC fleets and when they fly a corvette or ship with lower HP.
3.) they can quit the game, and download something else, uninstall
this is the reason that there is such a high % of “spy alts” in recruiter chats and in the game in general, because the only people who are ok with this sort of stuff, are people who have a 10 year old main account that can fly a tec3 loki LOL!
LETS GET SOMETHING GOING SO EVE CAN THRIVE FOR ANOTHER 2 DECADES
all you vets, you remember 10 years ago when you started? give us new players a game, where we can become ten year vets!
