I got to the point when I am just fed up with the boredom, feel of not belonging and complete and utter impossibility to earn any god damn money.
I am playing this game for one and a half month.
I do not want to do mining without the industry.
I cant do industry since it is way to expensive( taxes, even tho my tax skills are all on 4 and 5).
I cant make money for taxes by doing PvE since I have no money to buy those big ships that all people on youtube are talking about and my corax/drake/moa are netting so little isk doing ratting and abyss it is just not worth my time.
“Grind Online” should be the name of this game.
So, I went on “help” chat and I am asking and asking and all is good, people are trying to help- until you ask about the industry or trading.
Then everyone is quiet all of the sudden.
This is a game. It is not Wall Street. And yet all is hush hush when it comes to making isk- how the hell can I learn to make isk when everyone is so god damn selfish and learning by try and failure is out of the question since I do not have three trillion of isk to burn.
Also, more to the point- this game is( if you ask some fan boy or read an ad for a game) “player driven”- it is not.
How can game be player driven when game itself is mining ore, making things, selling and buying stuff? Are you all mad or is it that I just do not see something? I do not get it.
Anyway, my Omega is ending in 6 days, I just took a week off and I was looking forward to play this game.
I will try to play it again today or tomorrow, BUT I think I am on my way out and I will definitely NOT buy omega again.
I just spent about 9 hours in last three days in 0.0 to -1,0 systems. I tried to do data and relic sites.
9 hours equals:
about 100 jumps,
18 data sites,
2 relic sites,
two serpentis “high risk” sites,
I got blown up by serpetins data site and I lost ship and all of the stuff.
That last part was my fault- I did not minimize the game and went on the internet to find out what is in front of me. Still, I am one of those silly people that play games to lose myself in them- and minimizing the game and going for the internet is braking that immersion feel that I love in games. So that is another huge minus for the game.
Anyhow, point is simple:
Making isk is god damn impossible for me( mining is out of the question and t0 and t1 abyss is way too low of a paymant to be considered isk gaining activity, not to mention it is repetitive and boring with my strong belief that ccp is making some rooms unwinnable( like 1 in a 40), just for you to get blown up, I do not have ships for t3 and above).
Is there a way out of this circle I am in?
This is a game, not a god damn job. If I am expected to grind for days just to get a moment of gameplay- I am out.
This is my one last hurrah to try to find something to do in this game, way of making isk so that I can play the game as fun activity, so please do not be mean or whatnot- I am just fed up with not being able to get any help or to find applicable teaching sources on line.
Also, I have strong sense that my corp is just…ahm- not good. So yeah…
