    Based on all I've read and seen on utub I've been led to believe they're all over the place and that traversing systems is bound to get you killed sooner rather than later.

    Yet here I am, a complete nullsec noob roaming around system after system with no hassle at all - heck, the locals even seem friendly most of the time, if a bit skittish.
    Depends on what you're flying and/ or how bored the locals are. I've been hunted just as relentlessly when I got lost in Curse in a 3bil Machariel (and props to the Initiative, they almost had me :3) as I was in a shitfit Kestrel running data sites in bumfuck nowhere, can't even remember where I was.

    I guess it helps that I fly a covert Tengu travel fitted and bookmark every system I visit, but still...

    What are you talking about with this statement?

    And you want ccp to optimize rag tag fleets? That's your xetic and ascn roots coming through.

    God Damit....

    Find my first cate camp and blob, slide through beautifully without getting caught.
    Warp off to an asteroid field and then immediately warp to a structure, not checking what it is (thought it was the station I was headed for).
    Land near an unknown field close enough to de-cloak me and am immediately blapped by the nearby tower....

    Bloody hell no. Everything gets a life, everything has to die, for the next thing to get a life. What's dead should stay dead, no need for zombies in EVE. Though we could point out that a lot of big block stuff is very zombie like in its structures :P But that's a different topic alltogether.


    It's a simple observation. Organisations once were different in relation to each other. Now they are not (other than brand, flag, internal perception). Malcanis is right to point out that there is an optimisation process at play, I'm pointing out that a) that should not be the only process because b) it's derivative, generated if you will, so a balancing act between such processes is more healthy. Extremes are never good in the long run.

    Also c) what Malc calls the optimisation process isn't a natural given for humans, on the contrary.


    My opinion (!) is that for likelyhood of different things, shit and fun to happen, it is better to have room for different types of organisation, beliefs, behaviour and connected gameplay as well as different mechanistic and natural / environmental conditions. So not one mold fits all for optimal path to status quo so that there is no room for status quo. Which admittedly might be a bit much, wanting the universe to burn constantly, but that's just me.

    To a degree EVE still has the base system of different sections, but this is decreasing. It's the old divide of high / low / null, but that's the extent of it. People now choose the same mold - and thus status quo - because a) this is what rewards and b) what is stimulated by the current design vision. But because there's only pressure on one side of the scale there's really only one basic mold for optimisation - which is what Malc rightly points out as leading to status quo.


    A little disclaimer: I'm not saying that's necessarily a bad thing. People can have fun in that. It just strikes me that it ultimately turns EVE into a nicely packaged variant of the ST:O model. I think that's a shame, but I do recognise the benefits for CCP, and for select types of players.
    J'ai violé votre vaisseau spatial. C'était amusant....!

    EVE once was about internet spaceships. Then those became serious business.
    Now all that is left is serious business, and spaceships are docked for two years till after the Dust of Incarna

    Obviously have different overview settings for GTFO and what not, don't warp to moons or structures, but you already knew that

    That aside, I'm looking into popping back and see what's what, do a bit of explo, but can't really be bothered as my play time has been severely limited for years now
