Okay, let the troll fest begin. Its Eve and there is never anything remotely like never NOT troll.
But here goes.
I am a miner. That is what I like to do. It may be boring to you, a waste of time to you, something to laugh at to you. I like it myself.
I also go out and PVP sometimes, though usually I can be found in a belt Zening out and not really digging on anything but rocks and Youtube. That is how I like to play the game. That is what I spent FIVE YEARS worth of subscriptions for.
I do not just do the almighty most important bestest way evar to play, and if your not doing it your doing it wrong carebear sissy player PVP style of play.
I like to sit in a belt an mine. Drink a brew or something else and just let the world slip away for a bit.
Now it looks like CCP has gone a ruined it.
Not only do belts seem to have forgotten how to respawn after down time.
Not only do the NCP miners warp in and mine ore at incredible rates.
Now the NPC miner guards warp in with their high DPS and scrams.
First time it happened to me today, and yeah I am a little ticked off at CCP.
CCP what is this?
Who came up with this wonderful new mechanic?
I cruised around low sec today looking for ore. There was noon to be found yesterday, and I get it.
Your NPC miners took it all. This morning the belts are still empty. This afternoon same thing.
The belts forgot t respawn. And after joining a few chats and reading a few forums I have learned that nope, its not just me.
So, I jump to an alt and go visit highsec. Some ore there and of course the aggravating NPC miners show up. Of course they do. Ten belts in a system but they just happen to want yours. But that’s cool CCP I get it. Fine.
But now when you shoot back at a regular rat , the NPC guards jump on you. Not a hauler. Not a miner. Not one of the high DPS/scram guards. A regular usual rat.
It never happened before. This is new. It was not one of the faction miner NPC’s. I avoid them with good reason. Not Guristas or Thukkers or anyone else.
So no reason for a faction guard to show up. But they did. In highsec.
CODE is bad enough, and truth be told, the lore says that CCP had alts that started CODE many moons ago. I do not know if it is true but that is the lore.
It was either them or GOONS and then again some say CCP are also inside GOONS.
I have no idea, but it seems plausible as this is EVE . Anyone and no one can be trusted at anytime to be telling your the truth. You never know what their intentions and motivations may be. And that is cool. It makes it interesting.
But this crap really does put some truth into the whole idea going around that CCP ultimately wants to shutdown all production. Its a big part of the game.
The little solo guy/gal does not always want to join a corp. They do not always want to live in lowsec or null. They do not always want to be in an alliance.
Some just like to renew their sub. Train their skill sets. Buy/build the ships then go out and mine.
This new mechanic sucks and I am going to scream to BOB about it. Yell into the void.
Maybe the void will hear me, cause CCP sure does not.
If you take this away from me why bother to continue to sub and pay your salaries?
I imagine there are allot more of me in the game and besides the new bros need something to start with and it is usually mining.
You wanna push out the new blood to? I hope a DEV sees this and responds but I doubt it.
CCP is deaf and blind. Or they will lock a topic they that calls them out.
Go ahead and troll away. Over the years I have grown a thick enough hide.
I only point out the obvious. Kill off mining and then what? CCP takes it out of the game and dictates ore and mineral prices from now on? Wow that sounds like a good idea.
I may need to take a break for a while, at least until a new bunch comes in and restores order.
I am keeping my stuff in the hopes that it MIGHT happen. Maybe.
I think I will check into the forums to see CCP changes it. Other than that, I simply find this new mechanic to be something that sucked the enjoyment right out of the game for me. And that is something I do not want to spend real dollars on.
Go ahead and tell me to stop whining. Whatever.
This is over the top and over kill.
