I’m sorry guys, I’ve just gotta vent a little…
So, I started Eve in 2009 and have experienced a lot of what Eve has to offer -all based out of Ichoriya. I’ve dipped in and out of the game as time has allowed and amassed a healthy fortune to facilitate my Eve passion of shooting at other spaceships and dying in glorious PvP combat. Between 2009 and 2020 I hesitate to think of how much money I’ve invested into the game on subscription alone. So, I feel like I’ve earned my hoard of digital assets, having invested both time and money in spades.
So, in a story that is remarkably common it seems, and I apologise for adding to the pile; when I logged in as of late, I find that Ichoriya, home of my Eve nest egg, belongs to someone else. The mysterious Trivaglians have come, torn up some gates and gated the others so that now I’m trapped in a single system, with all my hoard and nothing to do with it.
Of course, killing myself returns me to high sec where, instead of my planned PvP activities after a day at work, I’m faced with scraping together some ISK from somewhere while my billions worth of perfectly good and hard earned ships sit, beyond the edge of the world.
I could actually take the time to work out how to get into Ichoriya, and use the magic filaments to teleport my assets randomly over space or however it works, but goodness… emptying a station of a decades worth of ships and goods? My days of having Eve as a second job is over for me and I’d quite like it to actually be a game.
They have offered to teleport one ship from the station in Ichoriya to one of my choosing - Ok, so I can at least get my mission running flagship out now - I don’t really want to run missions, but hey, I’m cornered for ISK.
The thing is, the fact they will teleport one ship out, but not the lot is actually really frustrating to me. They haven’t stuck to their guns and gone, ‘no mate, you were away, you lost out, the Trivaglians own your home now, go fish’ - and I’m glad they haven’t as that’s a massive disrespect but at least it’d be consistent - they’ve instead consented to the fact that actually, they’ve messed up some players experience and are offering a petty consolation in the form of ‘We’ll break the rules and teleport your thing to make up for it, because we can, but only one thing’ - well what about the other plethora of things that made up the experience that has been shattered? Would it bend the Eve rules or economy too much to take all the things?
I understand that I’ve been penalised for being away and out of the loop, space waits for no man - but it feels more like I’ve been penalised for coming back to the game, and I’m pretty upset about it.
Anyhow, I hope you all have been having a better experience,
And if there is actually an easy way to shuttle ships to highsec from Ichoriya that in my hard-headedness I’ve missed, please let me know.
