Entering the next phase?
As we head into the last possible extractions of the old Moon pulls that contained the mineral ores we now start into the next phase of mineral starvation. What is to be expected from market prices, manufacturing activity and general mining activities.
What are the general feeling about these changes?
I know within my group, who are a largely industrial entity living in null we have had a morale hit from the changes. I also know that this isn’t going to be the case everywhere so I would like to try and gauge peoples feelings from said changes.
Have you understood the need for the changes? are you happy with the information provided for the changes? do you even care? I would like to know all responses how ever trivial or specific they are.
What are the current effects?
Have you or your community had any positive or adverse effects from the changes? I said above my group has lost a few players who, contrary to popular belief enjoyed mining rocks. We have seen a decreased asteroid mining trend and an increased Ice mining one. What effects of the redistribution have you seen in your groups?
Do you have any apprehensions for the future?
Are you afraid that the next thing to change will be the next thing you have moved onto? I have had people talk to me about the fear they have that next will be Ice or even Gas leaving them without the pleasure they once got from the game. I hope that this will bring them into new areas, test the waters and go to new horizons, but what if it doesn’t? Would it help them if they were better informed with some data about why the changes are happening?
I have had pilots approach me suggesting that they are being targeted, and because they do not want to do consensual pvp they are being punished. The lack of communication is the key to resolving some of this, for that I am sure.
Have your say
I am trying to gather some information about this sector of the game. In general the player who partake in this type of activity as their main source of enjoyment from Eve online I have found to be usually less vocal, less connected to the wider game or generally shunned into a corner for enjoying such activities that they do not want to speak out about mining, This may seem like a far fetched concept, but I know it exists as I often didn’t want to chime in about mining changes, Rorqual changes etc as I was often belittled for my choice of activity.
There is no right and wrong answers here this is your game as much as the next pilot, if your game is being effected either positively or negativity by these changes let me know, or if you are excited or worried for the next change please lets get talking about it. What’s the worse that can happen?
