No, that is not the way to keep suitable new players. EVE does not need all new players to stay, it needs those new players to stay that can understand what EVE is about, what EVE offers you and how to live with EVE. All the other new players that just keep crying and whinging about issues can go to hell and play Hello Kitty, Farmville, LOL or Valorant or whatnot. They have no place in EVE because they do not and will never understand EVE. The only thing they do is to change EVE into something that is not EVE. It is already regrettable that CCP has been catering to these incompetent fools for far too long and keeps wasting time on NPE experiments that drive EVE into the completely wrong direction.
Well, they learn important lessons early on:
- Look really carefully what you are about to do. Ask other people for information before you click a button on something that you saw in local. That is basically why CCP pushes older players into the starter corps so that they help these dumbos to figure out EVE.
- Use the block feature with utmost prejudice. If something is being spammed in local 100x per minute, it is nothing you need to see or pay attention to.
If they cannot deal with these most basic scams in EVE, they will have a much, much harder time with the myriad of more sophisticated scams and will just cry even more later on.
