I’m a highsec miner and my corp got into a war with another corp, and of course, I got killed in highsec without anyone interfering. To me, it’s basically impossible to do profitable highsec mining right now, as I have to leave every few minutes. Of course, I could adapt to nullsec behaviour, but I’m a noob and I chose to mine at highsec because of highsec rules and thus there should be some kind of help.
You might argue that my corp mates should help, but they can’t protect one system all day so that I can do some highsec mining. Or they are just too far away, or because they are AFK/offline, or for whatever reason. Fact is, my corp (and probably the vast majority of any other corp) can’t help me - a highsec miner.
And thus I think there should be a solution to this. I’m a noob at EVE and there might be tons of better ideas to this, but I could imagine a small number of NPC-support to high sec systems, where corporation stations are present so that small ships will have to face a certain risk when attacking mining ships in these systems - instead of applying nullsec rules in highsec + local chat clutter for some extra camouflage.
Maybe this whole topic is noob-ish, but that’s the point! I am a noob and have to leave my corporation just to get highsec rules back. And doesn’t EVE always mean “you have to commit to a certain risk to achieve things/make profit”? Well, that’s not the case here. Thanks to all the local clutter it’s even easier than nullsec ganking.
