I’ve lived in lowsec for a decade, so am used to the harsh penalties for living their, as the “Quality of Life,” changes for the last several years believe that low security space, simply doesnt exist
But with the SP given to newer players, and the rush to get them into combat as fast as possible, there is now an influx of them entering Lowsec, which is kind of a problem, as every engagement with 1 usually ends up having the empire faction that their NPC starter corp belongs to, wack you with multiple standing hits per fight.
Lots of us had to grind 8.0 for jump clones way back then, so when I realized that I couldnt even do a lvl 2 mission any longer with any of the empire factions, when I had level 5 access standings with several corps in each, for years, it kind of pissed me off honestly.
Especially since the only positive thing low security space has are the level 5 agents…
Realizing in the last 4 months ive taken soo many standing hits that I need to start worrying about my empire standings so that im not kill on sight do to them and not my security rating, was kind of shocking. From a player that has never accepted a security mission against an empire, or engaged in FW, this is kind of bull.
Back when eve was hardcore, these things had a place, but can we get rid of this sillyness already. Living here is becoming an active punishment.
