Have been noticing a lot of complaints about less easy pew pew for trigger happy pvpers since hte patch

Killboards slower etc.

So for general discussion everything from wspace piracy-pew pew to null sec high sec and low sec pvp related

Have u been noticing less or more pew pew opportunities

If more where
And any areas mentioned above where there are less targets now ?

Been seeing a lot less myself. It was starting to happen before the patch though, so I think w-space is just taking even more people away from me.

Having said that I have an alt currently living in w-space and I haven't seen any pew pew there either..

Definitely more opportunities if you're creative. I've been able to light up our corp killboard quite a bit.

If you stick to the same old things pre-patch, then there's less PEW PEW as many folks are doing/exploring the new content.

Well I've gotten almost 100 killmails since apocrypha... but yes it is annoying with the agility buff.

Yes the need to be creative is important, there seems to be a lot of action around delve at the moment. This includes connection regions khandid, aridia fountain and period basis.

There is defintley pew pew in the transit corridors in the lower regions and up around synidcate lots of alt corps of the main combatants going behind lines and so forth.

There seem to be less wormholes now than there were even less to regular known sapce - not a good thing as it removes the shortcuts that were mixing things up.

The other aspect is the agility buff and a few other ship changes that is making pew pew quite a bit different that and the scanning changes. Is this affecting anyone, and any strategies that peeps would like to share

I like the less lag, I dislike the decrease in warp times. My abaddon with a sensor booster cant lock a harbinger on a gate between the time it uncloaks and warps out.

Scanning changes made a lot of difference, but once you get used to it, you can do some very entertaining things.

It's less apocryphia, and more qr that's killed pvp. The agility changes pretty much gimped whatever chance of catching anything the same size without a sensor booster, and you certainly can't catch anything a size smaller even with double sensor booster. It's still the age of the rr bs, which means a lot more static pew pew.

i think i've actually gotten more. maybe I was just having bad luck before, but last night I got this nice thorax that dropped 3 (out of the 4 guns, they also had salvager fitted lol) light neutron blasters that cost about 2 mil each (modal. t1 guns). not to mention a rolled tungsten plate I can use on my own thorax.

may not seem so great to you guys, but that's pretty good for me hehe

As I stated above, I was seeing a decline in my area pre-patch.

So far my wormhole ganking roams have been a bust. I keep finding wormhole systems that are completely devoid of life/people. I'll scan around for a day or so and find nothing, not even a probe.

PvE against sleepers is becoming boring fast (we have worked out their agro enough so that we can keep it off the ships that need it off them) and well, no trips back to real space (thanks very much highsec only freekin exits) means we haven't made any cash for a while either. (Although we have a couple of the things that need to be researched to make hull BPCs and enough stuff to actually build a couple if we manage it. No I don't know what they are called, I leave that sort of stuff to the logistics arm)

Well, at first it was about the same, but then I started eating a little more and had to go more often, sometimes almost twice a day. What? OH! You said pewpew. My apologies.

I hate you all.. I've had very little since the patch. None that I was sober enough to remember in the morning.

This is part of the story. The irony is that CCP wants player to commit to fighting, but the reality is that the agility boost is one of the things keeping us from doing that.. the speedchanges made fights more static instead, but players got more vary to gtfo earlier instead. And it got easier to do so.

I've died more frequently since Apocrypha so its definitely on the rise in some aspects.

This could possibly be since; right now, nuclear power stations are plotting to clip a barking aircraft carrier. My bourbon biscuit is renegade, and dishcloths that I work with may be studious.

I'm Federal Agent Lady Spank, and this is the fuzziest Scrabble-tile bag of my life.

Too late the markets already been seeded so the first 'gold rush' is finished now and the alliances up that way have started stocking the markets themselves as well now.Though you can still make a bit of isk.
