I am a returning panfam player who came back about three weeks ago. Haven’t played in a couple years, not since that war where test and goons were suddenly friends again against winter coalition. whatever the ■■■■ that was about…
Anyways I’m rambling… Despite living in Delve starting a couple days ago, I frequently visit highsec just to make sure it doesn’t grow too safe over there. I have to say that the Trigs have barely made an impact on me besides me wondering why a star system’s info was just a bunch of weird symbols on the UI.
I got popped once in Niarja by a smartbomb gatecamp, but that was about it. I don’t even think I was out fully out of warp before exploding. It was kinda cool. I didn’t even realize at the time that Niarja’s security rating went negative so it caught me off guard. It wasn’t a big deal. It was a shuttle with zero cargo and I was merely moving point A to point B without wasting a Jumpclone. I suppose I can see a new or returning player getting caught off guard once flying something expensive, but that’s about it.
To me they are no different than Sansha’s nation, or the drifters, or any other wierd crap that CCP throws in to spice things up. I don’t really engage with it because the goons and the unlicensed miners keep me busy, but I don’t have any issues with CCP adding it.
