I have played this game on and off since its initial release. I have always only ever played it and paid for a sub as that is why I play games to get the maximum benefit to do what I want when I want.
So, I know your all going to say oh he’s a care bear etc but that’s fine. Didn’t bother me back in 2003 and it doesn’t bother me now.
I play this game to relax and chill out, maybe after a hard days work or at weekends as part of wanting to relax. So, I transport goods, I mine and I run courier missions because that is what I like to do in game.
What I have discovered though about this game is firstly, at peak times it used to be around 45 thousand players online at peak times sometimes more. Now yesterday 25 thousand. I wonder if any of that has something to do with the fact that people can just blow you up in high sec now and seemingly get away with it without too much of a repercussion for them. Because I enjoy this game and I know things can happen, but when your in high sec carrying nothing else but a frigate, a basic mining ship and a cheap industrial in your cargo and someone just waits for you to jump into a 0.6 system and blows you up that to me is when it can impact on your enjoyment. For them, I am sure its great fun blowing things up but for the people trying to enjoy other aspects of the game now it seems your exposed and unprotected.
I noticed the guy go red and flashed, but that just means he might have to jump out of the system and they wouldn’t do it if there was any more serious repercussions would they?
I then get an e mail form somebody saying join our corp and we will teach you pvp. You need to learn how to protect yourself, what in an industrial? How the hell do you do that? I dont like pvp and I have never engaged in it as it is not my playstyle, so are you going to say to all the care bears and industrialists in Eve dont play the game anymore if you dont like pvp and have those customers leave the game as well?
