There’s way too much salt poured in these forum about Traglivians.
So I thought I’d help the whiners and divulge the big secret on how to avoid that long-lost race of bastids who’ve come back to haunt the four - ahem - peaceful empires of New Eden.
Traglivians were invented by some fertile mind at CCP to accelerate destruction and bring balance to the fo- I mean, the Market and the general ecosystem of EVE.
I can’t blame CCP for coming up with the Traglivians, tho. If the players PvP’ed more instead of hoarding their assets like they’re expecting the end of the galaxy we wouldn’t be here arguing about the value that the Trigs bring to the ecosystem.
So… You can love them, hate them or… You can avoid them entirely.
Most of the players who run into Traglivians created their characters to fly in Gallente or Caldari space and are trying to take advantage of the mythical lower prices in that den of scammers and pirates in Jita.
First. Do yourself a favor and forget Jita. Turn your attention to the other trade hubs. Rens, Hek and Amarr.
Dodixie is in Sinq Laison and you’ll also encounter Trigs on your way to and from there.
Second. Make a trading/hauling alt that lives in Minmatar or Amarr space. The Trigs are practically non-existent there.
Yes you’ll spend a little more isk in those trade hubs but what’s the point of saving isk in Jita or Dodixie when you’ll get ganked by PvP players or blown up by Traglivians who appear seemingly by magic to create CCP’s ( justifiable ) destruction ?
Third. Fly in Amarr or Minmatar space, it’s really a whole different universe and you’ll be able to prosper but don’t forget the Low and Null security space in the East, South and West of New Eden. Those systems are less populated than HiSec or the Northern parts of N.E.
Lastly. Don’t expect to avoid PvP/Ganking/Griefing. They are an integral part of the game and some would argue that they are the main part of the game.
EVE was designed with destruction and big battles in mind. Hoarding is not helping anyone and if you can’t afford the losses then fly frigates or just don’t play.
I know that a lot of forum regulars will say that I’m full of it and that’s ok. I’m all for free speech.
I also know that I’ve been following those guidelines for 4 months and been able to play without salt
