For it me is that multi account high sec suicide ganking has become the high sec meta game and common playstyle that new players can participate in against randoms rather than something that is reserved for the affluent and happens rarely to select targets.
Then you have so called “bumping” that puts an enormous damper on the hauling profession and hauling anything in general. I’ve never heard of another game where you needed multiple accounts to do a featured profession. With “bumping” you have an offensive action in HS where the aggressor pays no penalty for preventing you from warping by ramming their ship into you repeatedly while taking no damage, and this “emergent gameplay” forces you to travel around with multiple accounts everywhere you go to deal with it as the remedy to this is just as bizarre. To counter “bumping” you must use another account and use an offensive module (web) on your own afflicted ship to actually allow it to enter warp more quickly, oddly enough. However, just one account may not be enough as your webbing ship may get ganked as well. “Emergent gameplay” seems a lot like undesirable mechanics CCP is unwilling or can’t fix. When you think about what HS freighters are risking and the multiple accounts required to maintain safety for such meager profits in this profession, it hardly seems worth it. It should be enough that haulers have to deal with the constant aggressors in low and null. Additionally, nowhere does the game actually inform you of the differences in CONCORD reaction times, and SGs rely on that for their victims. It seems hard to call that pvp or good for the game.
Not only that but suicide ganking has become a safe space for the worst of gamers. The other day I made a new character and put him in a shuttle on autopilot and within 20 mins of char creation he was grief ganked in HS by someone with multiple accounts.
Not only are these guys victimizing newbs for profit and grief from a lack of game knowledge, but they take no risks to do it since they are always flying cheap disposable ships. I could just as easily been a new player hauling all my worth that I had been saving up for months.
