I actually have… a couple times. (By accident usually lol). sometimes you die… other times you don’t. Also gone afk uncloaked on a gate a few times XD that usually end in death depending on where.
But, It’s a roll of the dice every time you jump through a gate. You can take precautions watch intel etc. But at the end of the day unless you have a +1 alt or dedicated scout you just dont know if you’re about to jump into a cluster fudge of a camp or a gang passing through. Im mostly a casual scrublord…
Theres a reason hi sec is called Hi-sec though… I dont get why people are s butt hurt about people wanting it to be “safer” or have super safe areas… I think there should be a an area of the game where semi afk mining/pve or what have you can go on for people who just like to have the eve lazors thing on a background while doing other stuff and then building some stuff/selling to get a bigger ship they can fly around and look at. Not everyone whats to go hardcore EVE. I had a lot of casual friend always way back when but now its people either going hardcore or quitting. there is no middle ground.
Plex has dropped nearly 200 mil. Why do you think that is?? Oversupply… less people Omegaing. Less people logging in. Now whether or not thats legit players, dual boxeers or bots I couldint tell you.
Suits me fine. Im due for a plex up. But my alts ? My trader has been nerfed. So not sure if worth keeping around. Now even profiting off mistakes via fat fingering has been stopped due to the market warning pop up on top of the order change tax…
My sub cap miner/indy pilot? Also irrelevant. Should I even bother with a rorq at this point? Might as well retire him too. But hey If you blap NPCs all day long its fine and more profitable.
Used to be could go on a 2 year hiatus come back and things would be the same so you get back into it where you left of. Now you have whole skills deleted… Professions invalidated etc with no clear long term direction for a game that requireres long term planing. That was the art. The constant of eve was its beauty imo.
Mining or ratting is all the same to me… But ratting pushes you into combat skills so they dont want to nerf that I guess? I don’t think its going to last and thats probably next.
