Us mean old yarrs just don't want our source of hi-sec entertainment taken away by a pesky Eve police force. That wouldn't be very fair to us!


Fixed it for you.

Not that I completely agree with the OP, but lets call a spade a spade. Not everybody here is a mindless idiot.

It's natural to suspect other players of hidden agenda's. This is EvE, after all.

But I firmly support the game's harsh tendencies, and I've never scammed, stolen, or pirated. Despite that, it's something I appreciate.

I have the absolute solution to this issue:

Make Jet cans smaller. If a Jetcan is only 100 m/3, miner's will never use them. Add the ability to trash items in your cargo hold and the carebears will eventually stop whining so much because they'll be forced to use the appropriate equipment.

It's always been a bit disturbing that a jetcan, which you seem to magically just whip one up from common parts in your cargo hold, is also capable of such INCREDIBLE size.

Kinda suspicious, if you ask me. Neutral

really op your not very smart, go to lowsec, find a dead end system full of vled and mine your little heart out, when someone passes it comes on local right? so take a quick gander at his in game age/corp/sec rating. ive mined about 120-200k (amount of ore, not profit made of vled in like 30mins while matching a movie.

Thats what i do. who ever said they lose 2/3 ships while mining is right, I've lost one and im a total noob, i onyl lost it after checking his ship type, saw it had less hp them mine less high slots so jumped into station changed ship and went after him, i Lost he had drones TOTALLY forgot about that. but it was a fair right so i'm not complaining.

TL:DR dont whine and adapt or more somewhere more quiet

I think the reality of the mechanics do reflect the reality of everyday earth life...the police can't be there everytime something bad happens, no matter how much we want them to be. Same in Eve...if the pirates can smuggle themselves into the 'safe' part of the galaxy, then so be it. What they do after that is up to them. Like the real cops, CONCORD can only do so much.

Having played a yarr and a carebear, I can see both sides of the issue now. On one side, some empire players want things too easy, no threat whatsoever. They want that Codebreaker kind of play. On the reverse side, the pirates want more kills and will rail against any idea that might take that from them. Its a stalemate at best. As suggested before me, the best you can do is watch your ass, get some secure containers and keep on truckin'. If you can't do that, well, I don't know what else to tell you.

Clearly someone who has never mined a day in his life, certainly not with any ship (Hulk) with a decent set of skills behind it.

GSC's won't even hold one cycle from a miner with even passable mining skills.

Solution for everyone: Miners stop mining period. Then you PvP fanatics can pay 10x the price per ship to go get your jollies cuz the only source of minerals is from mission loot reprocessing.

If you ever looked at my KB, I have started suiside ganking pods in highsec and using my high sec status every few weeks to commit murder.

I could make a service out of this. Or just pod people like you who complain about piracy. Do you want to be podded? Making threads like this can get you that.

Don't have your drones out in high sec and they can't attack you. They think your a macro miner and they think you deserve it.

Now adays its impossible to suiside gank a transport in highsec with 1 bill in loot cus CCP buffed concords response time because of people like you.

The customer is always right?! WRONG! Only thing I can gank is a pod or a frig. I have yet to find a way agenst a mining barge hmm maybe a max DPS blastertron will do it. huh Didn't try that yet. Might be fun. YARRRR!!

PS: Use secure containers and stop complaining about stealing. Only your own fault. Rolling Eyes

Piracy is part of the game. Remember kids... RadHard > carebears are not people, they are giant pink piňatas.

Why doesn't CCP make bigger Secure Containers that are ment for a real hauler to bring there or a frieghter. Instead of having 20-30 GSC's in one belt?

So you're saying that the *only way to mine is with jet cans? If that's true then there's obviously a need for larger secure containers. In either case, true or not, reducing the size of Jet cans is both reasonable, and likely to eliminate can flipping. More work for miners - yes. More expensive for minerals - yes. Neither of these is a negative though. More work = more pay for miners, and there is a definite need for more ISK sinks in EVE as is.
