I’m a long time player, 10+ years on and off as my life and interest dictate. I’ve been a solo/small group player for the vast majority of my play time and have enjoyed the game for what it is. I am used to be largely out-numbered, I have to take huge risks to get kills and I am at the top of the list for the nerf bat that does not at all feel nerfy when it hits me to bolster the idiotic blue doughnut groups. It hits hard and fast, and only swings towards non-conventional players.
I want to actively hunt people. I honestly don’t care who they are, provided I have some sort of reasonable avenue to do it. I have been a wormhole hunter (solo/multi-box) for most of my career, but that career is dieing. I always figured that if my play dries up I would quit or join one of the power blocs and get my PVP that way.
So, my my play has dried up. I broke down and joined Goons, whom I assumed would have some serious outlets for PVP. I was wrong, it is a PVE circus, and they aren’t alone. All of the big blocs are functioning in this way to some degree or another. They get a bad rap, but they have a lot of good guys, but this huge PVE grind is not what I am after. Call me ignorant or naive, but I have always assumed that people don’t want to spend their time grinding isk for their overlords.
I honestly do not care about politics and do not at all want to be any part of one of these major player groups. I’ve never bothered with EVE politics or groups, I’ve played solo/small group for most of my career. I want to actively hunt and kill people, and currently I’m at a loss of where to do that besides the occasional explorer who wanderers into my WH when I’m actually logged on and watching.
So, where can I find some interesting content? I would appreciate any constructive advice. I’m not really interested in the usual BS, so don’t expect a reply if that is what you are laying down. I have adored this game for a long time and would love to adapt and find something fun to do.
