I haven’t really avidly played EvE in a number of years; thinking of returning but as someone whose sole interest was always in mining after reading through the forums I’m not sure. Is mining (particularly Hi-Sec) still viable? I know some consider it boring but I enjoy spending a day out in the belts, gathering a nice stockpile of ore and then selling it for a tidy profit. That’s what i enjoy about EvE and have going all the way back to the beta.
But it seems like while every other facet of gameplay has had a significant facelift/new features added in the last few years (or at least the last decade) mining has had little love? Am I reading things wrong? The Orca is still king (at least until the planned nerfs happen, if indeed they do), no significant new ores have been added and I don’t see any changes or new mining role-specific ships added. I’m questioning whether it’s worth bothering to renew my subscription or not and could use some advice.
