Been playing since 2006 on an off with my main… Sometimes i play for 2 years or so then quit for 3 or whatever… My main has 40m sp, and i last logged on in 2013. Im mainly a solo player, and do exploration and mining with occasional low sector pirating if i get bored.
Now before i get the give me your items and isk immature comments please note im not looking for childish behavior in my thread… Please be an Adult.
My question is this, should I bother coming back to the game ? I’ve been playing on my alt this char and my main for a week or so now as an Alpha and re-learning the game and what has come out since i was gone… I used to lovee solo’ing wormholes. Class 2 wormholes were really fun to me, and i liked being in charge of my own POS and that aspect of the game. I never had many problems in wormholes myself, i would mine gas, ore, and maybe run a few sites and if the ore\gas ran out i would fly into my static low sector hole and go pvp.
I have come back to a game that feels like they destroyed my fun and destroyed being able to really solo run the game when it comes to structures. I like the idea of having a large deathstar POS in a class 2 where TBH no one would touch it. I come back to these silly citadels with such low Hit points and pitiful weapons yet stupid high costs… Takes 24 hours to even drop one and 7 days to remove ?? really ? And now i hear that they are making them even easier to kill next patch because i guess the lockout between dropping the pitiful shields and going to armor ect was too long or something.
I dunno, i guess what im asking is maybe someone can give me a reason why i should re-sub and play ? I never liked being in other corps and alliances because ive done all that and you usually end of being burned by the ceo or alliance leader.
I used to pvp in Geminate back in i think 2007-2008 when smash alliance was up there, and my ceo whome i thought was a nice guy stole 2B worth of stuff from me, and i was only a year old and in 2007-2008 2b was alot, it took me months of planning to scan moons and farm that money ratting… So i quit the game. I come back and joined another alliance up very north in CZD-J system. It was okay, but the constant screaming and cursing by leaders on vent during fleet battles made me feel meh… The mandatory log in days and so forth also burned me out. I want to play this game on my own time not when some idiot tells me to come on. Im 31 now with real life responsibility. Im not 15 anymore playing world of warcraft raiding and playing the game for 13 hours a day.
Sorry for my rant… I just dont like how they seem to have crushed solo’ing. Am i wrong maybe im missing something and just being a drag i dunno ?
Also on another note… I feel like plex is out of control, all these micro transactions i dunno, when plex came out i remember it being 400-500m or so which was managable. Now they are at 1.6b… I seemed to have missed more then i realize because it seems the whole economy is inflated… Battleships like the typhoon and dommy were like 50-70m now they are double ? Everything is so expensive… orcas are 800m almost they used to be 500m or so…
Why is everything so expensive now ? I look at minerals and the prices are about the same for the most part… ?
