So I tend to come back to EVE off and on to see the state of the game and enjoy high risk trade routes because that’s what I do in this Sandbox as a roll player or player in general.
Recently I find it impossible to trade at all, me buying goods from low sec or null sec players to drag at my own risk all the way back to high sec to sell at a much higher rate.
The implementation of this Triglavian Invasion on top of PvP players, and also from what I’ve seen a system wide coronal bubbles? I personally didn’t take the chance of undocking from the space station when i seen this and just logged back out.
Lets face, the player base will only drop with said frustrations. People can point and laugh calling everyone “Care Bears” or whatever insults you feel like throwing around but the truth is, the game dies when a majority of the player base leaves, that majority happens to be “Care Bears” with a smaller percentage being PvP based. That’s not to say carebears don’t enjoy some PvP at times but its not what they do most of the time.
Personally i think these invasions need to be far less aggressive and the difficulty of them lowered considerably based on high sec or low sec space. This is just my opinion because Its fine introducing new content but not to the point that it is self destructing.
I don’t believe i’m alone in these feelings as I have scrolled through a lot of forum and even fan sites vocalizing their frustrations with Triglavian Invasions.
Call me crazy but I actually now play EVE Echoes simply because it feels more like the original EVE Online with out all the BS. The only down side to their mobile platform is that it has bots and ISK traders that are running the show in very high volume.
Well I’ll be back in another year or 2 to see if things improve, I’m guessing not to be less then optimistic.
