Large corporation/alliance also can’t mine moons in HS.
Large corporation / alliance can’t mine moons in HS either.
What kind of setup price are you talking about? Did you somehow miss the point that NOBODY can moon mine in HS? No solo guys, not small corps, not large alliance either.
Hmmm, pretty much yes since those ships have to be anchored in space where there is only player created protection while you can move at will and enjoy the protection from CONCORD.
If you want specialized tools, come where they are available. There is no need to create more mining vessels. Hell, they even created a poor man’s mining boosting boat recently in the form of the porpoise. You don’t even have to risk an Orca anymore.
The game is marketed around war and fights. Of course their attention will be more on places where that happen.
The protection miner get in null sec is player provided. People in HS should probably stop being so damn bad if they can’t do anything when a hot-drop fleet is always provided to them (CONCORD response is usually faster than even goons counter drops) and they still feel they need more protection.
