Obviously there has got to be some strategy behind the carving up of HS and the complete dismantling of trade and industry, but I’m hoping soon someone pulls back the curtain before wasting any more money on subscriptions. I’ve come back to station trading having been murdered - why? cheaters. Now, high sec and being split and and destroyed making basic manufacturing, trade, and PI nearly impossible and we’re in the early stages of HS division. Why? cheaters…
Watching CCP ruin the HS game because they can’t come up with a decent way to secure the long term value of the ISK and deal with abuse. Instead the trade off is to sacrifice everyone in HS including much of the incoming population due to not being able to have the economy under control any more despite the metric fuckton of money sinks in the game.
It’s getting old. If systems are getting invaded, and we’re sticking to story line where the ■■■■ is Concord? Why is it that Caldari Navy will watch me get smoked by Endecom ships with an 8 standing? Why the ■■■■ am I having to worry about basic autopilot through HS space (outside of the normal potential ganks) on an indy alt? You guys really think we’re going to suffer through manually jumping 46 systems to trade?
Anyway, this plan is dumb, and as long as someone back there is bad at math and creativity, at least please get a new guy to watch the incoming and departing stats of the game you’re changing to nearly require people to be in a corp in null. Lest you be left with Goons and PL alone.
tools, trolls, and fanbois can now hump that to death.
As someone pointed out - we can’t rant. I suppose a game that I’ve spent well, let’s see. 6 characters for an average of 10 years each(oldest being day one) , at $15 per month - roughly $10,792.80 on over the last 16 years total, doesn’t earn me the right when the game I have loved for more than a decade isn’t summoning the creative wherewithal to face the actual problem and is throwing the baby out with the bathwater - but I digress. So the constructive part, under protest -
- a new isk block - get rid of scamming, completely. It’s only done by veteran players, typically at the expense of newbies, invites an unsavory aspect to the game, ruins local, and only makes the rich richer. Perhaps when the game was in it’s infancy it was a dog eat dog world and could be tolerated as adding a fear of poverty to the game. Now that EVE (at least a modicum attempt) has gone mainstream this sort of behavior, especially with a rampant inflation problem has no place here and hasn’t for years. There is zero upside to it outside of the 1%'ers.
I’ll come up with some others, but that would be a good start.
