What is PvE in Eve? A nuisance? An imbalanced part of the game? How is this related to the economy of eve?
For getting answers just let’s take a look at the recent ecenomic report (march 20). Where is all the ISK coming from?
Ah, right, most of the ISK is gained by ratting and running missions. PvE, as they call it.
And where is this happening?
In Delve and Oasa, mainly. In fact Delve has 10 times the bounty payout than the highest one in empire space, Metropolis. So the money is mainly made by ratting in Null. This is how alliances are paying for titans and death stars (do we have death stars yet? can we haz death starz?).
So what if Concord decides to no longer pay for rat kills outside of empire space? What if the main faucet of Eve would run dry and leave us scavenging for loot to build both our ships and dreams? Sounds pretty inconvenient, am i right? Still, this would make for a healthier economy and more meaningful PvE. I’m all for adjusting this, gradually reducing bounty payout, to zero, or at least to 50%.
Eve has become too easy here. We need to fix this.
