I like EVE, and I like that EVE is hard, but this Triglavian BS has to stop.
I have played for about 11 years and I am trying to run a HS corp that helps people get into the game, with the hope of at some point passing beyond that. I have a few good players that are amazing, but every single one of them requires them to train for a ship that they will never actually use, and me risking a ship to fix the stupid standing issue that is present with everyone in EVE with no real explanation or understanding to those that die from it. After a lot of translation I basically have to tell them that we have to get lucky or die for them to fly with our fleet, or we try again. This sucks.
I am American, and for some strange reason I find myself leading a corp full of Poles. They are great, but we have language issues. Trying to explain the how to set a proper orbit, how to add the tag column, and how to use movement to stay alive is exceedingly difficult without the Trig Issue and almost impossible with it. I have to have a translator with me, who is also extremely new to the game, explain complex game mechanics to fix some poor bastards standings so that he doesn’t die constantly.
If killing off new players is your goal, then well done. From a business point of view then you guys are idiots. I am doing your job and you do nothing but harm me and the new people I am trying to keep.
I want to keep my Poles, and be friends with them. I shouldn’t have to fix difficult stuff to just get them to a baseline of what I started at. Newbros should start at +0.01 Trig standing.
