I’ve just returned to the game and after checking zkill for some mission hub systems , I’ve realized the number of suicide gankings has increased like never before. Keep in mind those are not systems like Uedama or what Niarja used to be. Those are mission hubs and you can check the systems and the adjacent ones surrounding them on zkill to convince yourself (Osmon, Apanake, Lanngisi). Yes those are the ones with Sisters of Eve level 4 agents in them. I wanted to do some missions for that corporation and now it is no longer possible .
Why it isn’t possible ? Looking at zkill I see suicide ganks done just for the pleasure of it. I see losses of ships on zkill there due to suicide ganking that were just fitted with t2 modules. Normally you would do this for the expensive fitted modules, but now the trend is to just gank no matter the drops , gank just for the sake of it, just because you can …
Combine all of this with the suicide ganks of mining barges from all across New Eden and the suicide ganks in trade hubs and trade routes and what do we have ? We have a highsec more dangerous than j-space.
This has badly got out of control (suicide ganks just because it can be done and not for the profit) , there has to be a limit to this !
So please, like the title says . The solution is very simple to implement and fix this problem . Make it so so that you can no longer set safety to red while in highsec space. Leave the option to have it set to green or yellow. The only places where you could set safety to red should be lowsec, nullsec and j-space.
Thank you !
