Encounter Surveillance System

The ESS system is total ■■■■■■■■. I just spent 3 hours trying to make isk and had a 50 man goonswarm fleet come in and steal it in 5 minutes. There is no way i could defend my isk. This is an unfair and ■■■■■■■■ part of the game. It makes me want to leave the game and never come back.

yeah, the blocked words were bull ■■■■ and bull ■■■■

I’m pretty sure ESS are features designed around gang warfare. FW is more for the solo … small gang. Obviously you can try to do ESS solo, but you’re trying to punch out of your weight class by doing it.

He was not raiding the ESS, he was farming ISK and a big chunk of his farming was stolen by a big blob gang coming through. Your reading comprehension is as good as Rattati’s and Burger’s skills at creating good gameplay experiences …

@Jaileint_Darkendark If this drives you out of the game, that’s sad to hear but totally understandable and commendable. The more people act like you, the better for EVE because it forces the incompetent developers to come up with better ideas or the game shuts down sooner than later and punishes the developers for their incompetence.

Working as intended. Botting and farming is not risk free!


The portion of ISK that goes to the ESS is only paid out when you can defend it.

You couldn’t.

Luckily you don’t always have to defend it, often nobody comes around and you get that ISK unchallenged. Better luck next time!

Rat in a pocket system. dont let your ess get above like 20 mill. move to the next system, rinse, repeat…

Now you know the power of being in a community and the power of group activity.

Grinding for ISK makes you not enjoy the game, make friends in EVE and create content with the community and you’re better off.

Unless your with a blue donut. Fairly unbalanced system.

Even if you were surrounded by blues, there will be hostile groups that may come to steal your ESS.

And if you do not undock to fight them, you’ll lose the ISK inside the ESS. So that’s working as intended.

Best is when they are bringing ESS to highsec for mission runners.

That’s a real shame especially as you are living in nul sec so you should already have a mindset that these tough knocks shouldn’t phase you.

I recommend you watch the intel channel. If you see people are out an about robbing ESS think about stealing it yourself. However better yet view the loss in the ESS as the price paid for a bit of content and get some friends to form up with you. Just don’t over form or they will never stay for the fight.
