This week has been hell for me, between reports due for school and hormonal changes I basically just snapped after I worked real hard to get a new Destroyer, put the best weapons on it I could for the purpose of hunting Rats and on my way to get the last item I purchased (which took me into 0.4 space) I get ambushed as I am leaving the dock by a "Jerk" who kills me before I even in the pit. Mad
Since I spent almost all my ISK on this ship and it had all my best stuff on it I just blew. Crying or Very sad
I reported him every time I logged in, in fact 90% of the time I would log in to play and just get sick; report him for harassment and log out. Neutral

I am feeling (a little) better now. Embarassed

I was just so angry that players are allowed to be as bad as they are and Eve is not banning them en mass.

This is the 2nd ship I lost, the first was when I joined my first Corp and the leader (who invited me) quit and created another corp and wardec'd his original corp just so he could kill us. That was my only experience with Corps and if that is how they are I want nothing to do with it.

My first week of playing I lost my only Industrial to a traitor and my tricked out Destroyer to Jackass. ugh

How would you feel? Rolling Eyes

This is what lowsec is for. This is why there is that popup telling you you are no longer safe when you go to jump into 0.4.

There is an explicit assumption that everyone in lowsec and below is there for PVP.

If you missed that, I'm sorry for you. I'm 90% carebear and I had times when I first started when I got killed without giving lowsec its due deference but I never, never, not once, posted a petition about it.

Your frivolous petitions are slowing up the entire system and are a much, much worse cause of righteous anger than anything this pirate has done, which was play the game.

Get in touch with other players who can lend you stake money, learn how to use insurance, stay out of lowsec till you know what you are doing or are with someone who does, and most importantly, withdraw those petitions before you earn yourself a warning for wasting the time of a GM.

Sad, but this is not trolling, this is genuine naive arrogance. If it was an attempt at an apology it's a poor one, and they need to stop posting before that account disappears entirely.

lol I still remember my first podding "in my brand new tricked out Destroyer" :) It stunned me but I've played enough online to know that it was my fault and I needed to suck it up lol. Domi caught me in my Cormorant (lol I know it's named after a bird but the 'rant' on the end of the name seems fairly appropriate). I still have that person on my buddy list but before reading this post had forgotten all about them.

It's hard for new people to understand the purpose and place of ships in the EVE verse.

Ships are like socks. You change them often and lose a few plain and simple :) When you least expect it...expect it. At first you work and work and work up to that nice new shiny and are so eager to jump in and take it for a spin that you make that fatal mistake.

Just handle it, and since I'm feeling like Abraham Lincoln at the moment (this is rare in the EVE verse), just convo me in game and I'll outfit you with a new Destroyer this one time :)) Just hang in there. The game really infects you after awhile and don't give up on people or yes, you may as well move on to something else before you commit too much time.

After the Destroyer I figured out the mine into a can trick (although I did it wrong at first) and thought I was on a ISK roll. Mining away and jettisoning all my ore into a can then picking it up afterwards. LOL I didn't realize at first that one can (just hadn't really noticed) could hold so much. So there I am in a starter system with my Bantum and 14 (or so) jet cans floating around me. Well I sorted that mistake out fairly quickly.

To be honest Yuki, If it was any other way than it is, The game would bore you to tears. I had an adrenaline rush today which could only happen in this environment as it currently is.

Good luck, Fly safe (lol we all say that), and don't give up just yet.

lol how much did you tell her about autopilot?

Next week we're likely to see the post about getting that fat juicy industrial with everything she owns in it ganked in Jita Shocked

This game requires you to inquire, read, and learn.

Sooo, attempt to learn "What is a Jita?" (It's a place btw), and about warp to zero VS. autopilot.

AFK = Death. Not necessarily immediately or even all of the time, but inevitably if you tend to rely on it :)

again, best of luck.

Edited to add the following:

Yuki, In EVE your rep means a great deal. I just took a quick glance at your last few posts. This community does NOT want a PVP server and a PVE server. No voluntary flags, nothing. You would be much better served by just accepting the universe for what it is as you personally have about as much of a chance of changing it as you do the real world you yourself live in. You need to either learn to love what is EVE or recognize that for what it is as soon as you can for your own sake. I am NOT telling you to leave (your post about requesting CCP to ban people like that for a week or so is just... well), anyway.

Think about it a bit on your own.

You "apology" fails on quite a few levels, but I'll only tackle a few right now. You *MIGHT* be able to figure out the rest, once you get over yourself.

You failed three times here, and here's how:

1)You try to justify your coming on here and ranting. Your title says you're apologizing; apologizing implies accepting responsibility for your actions; instead you attempt to justify them. First fail in this non-apology.

2) Any real understanding of the game at all would have dictated your actions - you knew the last module was in 0.4 space, so you took your new shiny into NON-REGULATED space and got blown to bits. Guess what? That's why that space isn't regulated! Now, what you SHOULD have done was buy that last module in highsec, where the chance of gank is lower and a dessie's not worth a suicide-gank. Or, if you understood EvE at all, you would have gotten the smallest, cheapest ship that could carry that module in it's cargo hold (either a shuttle if it was less than 10 m3 OR a Executioner, otherwise) and made the run in something that you could - AFFORD TO LOSE. As if that hallowed principle hasn't been bandied about these Forums even since EvE first started...
3) Admitted that you in turn harassed that player by reporting him at every turn, WHETHER OR NOT he'd done anything new. That clots up the petition system and, as what he did is PERFECTLY WITHIN LOWSEC RULES, got you yourself perilously close to being banned under the "harassment" section of the ToS.

My hat's off to you, three fails in one paragraph is a noteworthy achievement.

Personally, I've lost more than two ships in my EvE Career. I felt the loss for a bit, then sucked it up an moved on. The ONLY ship I've petitioned for reimbursement on was a Catalyst that got hung up on some 'roids and wouldn't maneuver while I got killed by a couple rats. That was due back then to bugged maneuver mechanics, and CCP agfreed by restoring my Catalyst. Not the gear it had on it; just the ship itself. By the time they did it I was into cruisers, so it was a minor deal.

Point is, you can do either one of two things: Cry/whine about it, and let the event rule your life - or you can learn what you can from it and move on, using that knowledge later. So, what did yo7u learn?

1) Entering space itself in EvE means you consent to PvP, anywhere, anytime.
2) In lowsec, anyone can gank you on a whim, with only a standings hit as penalty.
3) Don't fly what you can't afford to lose.
4) Whining about it on the Forums will NOT goe you any sympathy - only derision and the occasional person tot ell you what you did wrong.
5) If you lose your ship, most of the time it's your own fault. Learn from it and move on.

Consider joining Eve University. I've never met a better bunch of hard working, friendly people. Also consider staying out of lowsec and null sec for a while. When you first start out in Eve-online, you are a deer and lowsec and null sec is full of lions, tigers, and bears. :)

First off I would like to thank Quantar Raalsken for helping me. Very Happy
And second I would like to thank everyone who gave me good advice in-game.
I now know what Low-sec and Null-sec are and I know that at least for the present time I am not ready to enter those places.
I have reset my Market to not display sales in low or null sec space and I have programmed by Autopilot to stay in High Sec space. Smile
I am off to a rocky start and I am sorry for all the hate and discontent I spewed, I guess Eve a lot more like real life than I wanted to admit. Embarassed
Again thank you for being patient with me. Laughing

Speaking as a new player in Yuki's defense, I can sympathize with what she's going through. This game has the steepest learning curve of any MMORG i've ever experienced - and I've experience playing in 3 others. If any devs from CCP are reading this I would ask that you come up with a better rulebook than the lame one you put in the Apocrapha box set. Even a strategy guide would be nice. Searching the forums for in game issues and topics is ok for those of us with the time to do that. But if you're busy in RL it just gets plain annoying.
Anyway, glad everything worked out for you Yuki. Better luck in the future.

So take a disposable frigate if you want to pick up stuff in lowsec and don't want to risk your main ship.

MY list of noob mistakes you have to avoid:

People that is redblinky in high sec, including when you mine, randomly around gates, mission ninja looters and etc, attacking them will make you a free kill for anyone with a pvp fitting.

Autopilot in general, learn to use the warp to zero, and actually play the game yourself and you can save yourself hell of a lot of time.

dont ignore warning messages, yes they are annoying, but 90% of the whiners in here never actually read them and even read the tutorial in the first place....


well thats al i can think of now, contact me in game if you are in gallente space somwhere ^^

Well I tell ya, when it rains it pours.

Go back to basics.

Base out of a hub system so you can buy all equipment in 1 station. You're minnie so base out of Rens.

Pick a profession. Stay in hisec. Do your profession. Make money and invest it in advancing yourself.

When you're ready for pvp, get a 2nd account and build a character for that purpose. Transfer isk, buy a cheap ship and go have fun.

Eventually you'll want to move out to 0.0 read everything you can first, collect advice, prepare and DO it.

This game moves in cycles. Collect info -> Prepare -> Do it.

We have forums with tons of ppl who give good advice. It's a resource. Use it.

Information is the biggest buff in Eve. Bigger than money, bigger than SP.

Losing a destroyer is nothing. People lose friggin carriers like it's nothing.

Step back, so you can see the bigger picture.

Let go of hate, fear, arrogance, envy, pride and ego.

Stay humble, stay low, warp to zero, kiss your mom, say your prayers, eat your vitamins, don't train random skills, pick a ship and train for it.

Download Evemon and EFT.

Contact me in-game I'll give you the straight scoop.

Peace out

EVE doesn't have a steep learning curve. Everything can be translated back into what you've already experienced. What seems to get to new players so much is that this game has pseudo-permadeath and open PvP. And even after being told this, still are somehow surprised when they lose their ship. Especially in this case where the game does its best to warn the player, they ignore it, then they make personal attacks against the person who was playing the game correctly. Being new is simply not an excuse here. The only bad guy here is the OP.

Actually, the learning curve isn't all that steep. I say this as a relatively new player myself. The game is intimidating, but not all that complex. Especially not if you go through the tutorials, read the guides available on-line, and pace yourself.

There aren't really all that many buttons to press. There are tons of skills, but you'll only ever have to deal with a few at a time. Combat is relatively slow and cerebral by comparison to many other multiplayer games out there. And there's certainly no shortage of helpful advice.

The problem with EVE is that it is unsafe by design. There is absolutely nowhere you can go, short of docking and never leaving the station, where you are safe from PvP. Anywhere, anytime you can be killed. You can also be harassed. You can also be scammed. And it is all legal.

This is the part people have a hard time coming to grips with. Folks are constantly complaining in-game and on these boards about being scammed, or harassed, or killed, or whatever... That's the nature of the game. The whole point of playing EVE is to experience that setting.

1) Don't fly what you can't afford to lose
2) Trust no one
3) Don't fly what you can't afford to lose
4) Assume EVERYONE is out to get you, one way or another. Paranoia is a GOOD thing in Eve.
5) Don't fly what you can't afford to lose
6) Pay attention to the warnings.
7) Don't fly what you can't afford to lose
8) If you go into 0.4 or lower, you are definitely a target. You are a possible target, anywhere.
9) Don't fly what you can't afford to lose.
10) DON'T FLY WHAT YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO LOSE!

There you go, 10 simple rules of thumb that will help you.

Eve can be a very harsh and hostile place. Keep your eyes peeled, ALWAYS. Think twice about anything that requires a trip out to low-sec and null-sec space - you are fair game for anyone in anything below 0.5. People WILL try to make you shoot them, so they can then pile in with their mates. Most times, things are as they seem, but if something seems too good to be true, assume it probably is, and leave it for some other mug. If there's a fancy-pants piece of kit for sale in a low-sec station, at a (suspiciously) lower price than the same item in a hi-sec area, IT IS A TRAP. They want you to go there, buy the item, undock and think you're home safe, but then WHAM, webs, scrams, damage, ECM are all on you AND YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT except fight back, try to escape or just suck up the loss and learn the lesson. Oh, and keep your clone updated all the time.

All good fun, really. Shocked

Fly safe.

There you go, 10 simple rules of thumb that will help you.

Eve can be a very harsh and hostile place. Keep your eyes peeled, ALWAYS. Think twice about anything that requires a trip out to low-sec and null-sec space - you are fair game for anyone in anything below 0.5. People WILL try to make you shoot them, so they can then pile in with their mates. Most times, things are as they seem, but if something seems too good to be true, assume it probably is, and leave it for some other mug. If there's a fancy-pants piece of kit for sale in a low-sec station, at a (suspiciously) lower price than the same item in a hi-sec area, IT IS A TRAP. They want you to go there, buy the item, undock and think you're home safe, but then WHAM, webs, scrams, damage, ECM are all on you AND YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT except fight back, try to escape or just suck up the loss and learn the lesson. Oh, and keep your clone updated all the time.

All good fun, really. Shocked

Fly safe.
