Too many reasons to count but I shut down the game today as it is no longer the game I want to play. Will I be back? Probably, maybe, hell, I don’t really know. To begin: All trolls and their remarks can stuff it, not gonna deal with all that and most likely will not return to the forums for a long, long time, if ever.
My thoughts: I want my sandbox back, with a stable playing field and get everything nerfed/buffed then leave it alone. Get rid of the Alphas, give new players thirty days in a free unrestricted Omega with the option to buy. I see no need for structured missions, we can get in enough trouble on our own.
CCP has fallen into the evil obsession with profit margins with no thought to the people who loved and played the game for years. Constant nerf/buffs with no thoughts to the effects on the players or the game will, in the long term, result in naught but a bunch of Alphas playing simply because it’s free.
Yes, it’s a complex game but once it’s more or less sorted out then all is needed is normal maintenance and a solid defense against hacker attacks of whatever kind.
