Agree there’s got to be a better gank. I think high-sec ganking is a vital part of Eve. A gankless high-sec would be hideous. But new ideas here are treated with derision time and again. The same crowd of No-No Nannetts emerge each time and wag their crooked fingers such that would make Macbeth proud.
Don’t tell anyone, but I’ve been on a few hi-sec ganks myself…courtesy of an alt. It got old real fast. And they all think mining is boring ??? Ha.
Get in boring Cat. Jump in system. Jump to motionless ship. Shoot guns. Get shot by CONCORD. Sit in station. Look a kill mail. Ohhhh. Ahhhh. Leave station. Get in boring Cat…rinse…repeat.
There is another “change the gank” thread going now and I just made the point there that this game-play can be improved. Many in the same crowd here that found no good to your post, pine endlessly about their pet topics that CCP has failed to address. But that of course is different.
I thought your characterization / analysis of the gank was spot on. Innovators are always derided.
Here’s to the hope for a better gank ! Cheers !
