Renting seems to be a large frowned upon topic of eve. Most others are so completely against it but I do ask you to hear me out and then give me your opinion.
I am an indy/mining player at heart. I enjoy ratting as well for the occasional break. I’ve spent a lot of time in high sec, and nullsec. I’ve spent some time living in wormholes as well. I honestly do believe that nullsec is the place to be for someone such as myself. Now for one of the most common questions, why not just go join one of the blobs in null? Well there are many reasons but the most important ones are as follow:
- I don’t want to deal with politics
- I want to be able to have a system to myself and be able to utilize all the system’s resources for myself
- I don’t want to have to worry about paps
Yes, i know there are many different corps in the alliances that just mine, build and rat and generally jew around and that is essentially considered their “paps”. I know that if you’re essentially just a member of a corp that you really don’t worry about the politics of eve but it usually is still there one way or another. Most importantly though, being a miner and indy guy, I’m tired of always having to fight other people for stuff. You find a quiet system to mine in and then before you know it everyone is coming in to mine and before you know it, it’s gone. And Ice? you’re lucky to get a little bit before someone comes in multiboxing 30 accounts and scoops it all up.
Now, I’m certainly not complaining about any designs of eve or how everyone runs about doing their thing. This is just simply what I’ve seen in my time and the direction I feel like i have to go about. I do understand that in renting, I am throwing a chunk of my profits away to temporarily have a system and i could lose it at any time. I’m here though because I’d like some input from others as to if it does sound like it would be a good way for me to go or if there really are other good options out there for me.
