I played for years, stopped in 2013, and got back just few weeks ago.
I see much less players, I see some new stuff, but there is some bad stuff too.
First day I started mining with Venture in a HS system, ship came to 1km from me and opened fire.
Killed my Venture, killed my pod, killed me - player I dont know
In a sec channel opens and some players I dont know demand 10M ISK to let me mine.
They say they are officers of the law.
That I need permit for mining.
Since I had few B on my other chars I paid.
Put ‘‘certificate’’ on my BIO and went mining again
Now, I mine ore, that is fun to me, and since I have too much action in RL, I want to just mine ore in a game. My killboard is 0, for so many years I played just PVE in EVE.
But, as you can understand, I got killed again and some ‘‘officer’’ told me I must warp out when I see them.
Third time I warped, but - they scrambled my warp.
So I guess this is just bullying. And CCP has no problem with it.
GM told me that is way some people play.
Than I saw that all point of this is killboard.
That is way I call CCP and Devs and GMs to make (like in so many other games) PVE sectors or PVE something that players who want to play just PVE can do just that.
That is not hard to implement and you will see that 90% of players will like it.
