If I was infact “afk” mining. Extra visual effects or sounds for targeting drones wouldn’t matter.
I’m not sitting away from my game. I am playing, but taking care of other things at the sametime, as said, cause I wouldn’t be playing this game and neither would ALOT of other if my 4 hours waiting for an orca to get full, was watching that orca hobble in space for 4 hours straight.
I know a lot of people who enjoy beeing creative, cause that’s what industry is, Social, creative, planning and management. But I also know a lot of people, including myself who’s quit for good due to the fact that they can’t relax or express enough creativity. Gankers for example are trying to completely eliminate that creativity, not for gains, but for just pure spite.
I have worked as a machine operator IRL for many years and IF I couldn’t listen to podcasts, or read a newspaper or talk to colleagues, while checking in on the operation now and then, you’d become depressed and stressed out and that’s pretty much what mining is, an operation of a machine.
But you’d be damn sure there’s both warning signals, sounds and blinking lights if some part of the machine isn’t working even slightly correct. So why, in a industrial futuristic mining operation, wouldn’t there be warnings going off, if someone targets and starts blasting away at your equippment.
It makes very, very little sens.
So now I wonder, what makes you so ill-willed towards this?
I don’t want to get home after a 12 hour day at univercity, to go out and pvp and stress my mind. I want to relax. Cause that’s what EVE is to me, a relaxation from reality.
But I know a lot of you enjoy the endagerment aspect of the game and love to get some adrenaline pumping, and so do I at times. But you don’t get that from trying to gank a miner.
