So other games have a grace period/min level before PvP is allowed, yet EVE Online ‘Allows’ (well the mechanics of the game do) you to PvP from basically level 1 or your first 500k skill points. whatever. High sec 1.0 means CONCORD /may show up and kill the ganker, and I have seen it happen, I got ganked and saw the player that ganked me got blown out of the sky by CONCORD… I’m betting the guy could afford to build 5000 more ships that he used to gank me and got a huge laugh at the expense of a new player… I can hear him now…“If you don’t have the stomach to enter the PvP world of EVE Online GTFO Sucker!!” My that’s an excellent attitude towards new players, and you wonder why the new player base in eve online is one of the fastest revolving doors in gaming history?
Here’s a question (2 actually) Why call it High Sec 1.0 when in reality there’s no Security at all when players are so rich they are willing to sacrifice ships for the joy of ganking? why have any PvE at all, as you say it’s a player based game… who needs missions and rats to fight. go find other players to fight… collect the bounties (and the goods) But I digress, aparently my little thread has got the gankers upset how dare I suggest that High-Sec 1.0 space be safe-havens in EVE Online, after all we know that’s where all the ‘Fun’ is, fresh meat and all that, makes you EVE Sharks drool, the thought of making it a wee bit easier for the ‘CASUAL GAMER’ to get his feet wet before jumping into the world of 0.0 to 0.9 sectors. Take the gloves off there boys, we have been warned. Did you know EVE has a bit of a steep learning curve for new players?
My digress has digressed, sorry.
My point by the way was not to ‘ROB YOU OF YOUR FUN’ but to offer a suggestion that might see more new players enter EVE and stay a bit longer, get past that steep learning curve… and so what if a few players never leave 1.0 High-Sec, it would take a solo miner 6 months to get enough ISK to buy enough plex to add 30 days to his account. and you ‘Long Time EVE player’ have total control of the markets, you could make veldspar and other low level ore not worth the time to mine. But I’d still mine it, because I’m a CASUAL PLAYER I don’t play EVE for the PvP, there is so much more to eve than just the PvP. And one day I’d probably venture out of 1.0 space, and I’d welcome the gankers, because I will have deserved it.
Did I digress again, Ok, I’m done, Fly safe, just not too safe because that would spoil the game right?
