I think you like the look and feel of the game, but don’t know what to do. At some point, it seems by your short post, that you got the idea that farming in highsec is the only way to play.
And that is so wrong I cannot describe it.
If farming is all you wanted, then I guess you are done. The game has become too chaotic for predictable farming. But there is still harvest to be had if you are more flexible.
Beyond that I won’t list everything you can try because that would take all day. Why don’t you check out Abyssal Space, Faction Warfare, and some of the communities like Bombers Bar and the Exploration channel?
There are so many options I cannot even count them. I played for 12 years and only saw around 20 percent of the game content.
