You all are probably going to berate me as a new player for this but I’ll just post this anyways. As a new player (2 months old) I joined a corp in highsec. We were based out of Dod and I loved every second of it. That is until we got war decced by an alliance called RIOT. A lot of you will say “Dude just join an NPC corp, then you can’t get war decced”. The thing is I actually like my corp, I like the players, I like the activities that we do. For a new player being in a corp with real people on a discord killing rats in belts and doing small fleet PvP is fun. So no, joining an NPC corp and leaving them is not an option to most newbros. We don’t join EVE to sit and talk with robots all day, we join it to have fun. So back to the story, they war decced us, now every time I enter almost anywhere in Highsec I get ganked by RIOT. I have a strong feeling that this is why a lot of new players quit this game. All you vets who say “well blah blah dont play EVE then if you can’t handle it”. This isn’t about me going to lowsec or nullsec and getting killed because I’ve done that and it’s 100% on me. This is about being in highsec and getting camped repeatedly until I just log off. EVE isn’t a very new player friendly game to start with, but something like this shouldn’t happen to new players. These corps that take advantage of the new players are no better than max level characters on WoW camping level 10s because they can’t actually fight a max level character. Anyways I’m hoping that the changes will hopefully stop some of this stuff from happening with War Deccing, but judging by how scummy the people are in these corps I see them trying to find loop holes to continue to do it.
My point in this is that your mentality of “Blame the newbro because he’s a newbro and shouldn’t play EVE if he can’t take it” is completely invalid. As vets you should be promoting the game to new individuals, not snuffing them out. If all newbros stopped playing this game, you wouldn’t have a game to play.
In ending, find some other way to rather than scamming new corps out of isk, if you want to war it out in Null sec thats fine, just don’t drag the new population into it. You’ll end up just killing this game even further.
