One giant universe of cowards, forumwarriors and hypocrits. I've seen 5+ alliances ganging up
on 1 alliance and then banging their chests on the forums.... total FAIL.

I see bull**** alliances going NAP with 80% of EVE, guess they like mining....

I see alliances sending in 4 titans to DD hostiles fleets instead of sending in an equal fleet
and getting a good fight... How stupid can you really get.

I remember the old SA vs CA war when everyone knew they would have almost daily fights near
HLW, and still, no one got involved. It was just SA vs CA HAVING FUN.

Why can't people grow up in their mentality and say 'NO', when 1 alliance fails to kill another
alliance 1on1 and asks for help?. Don't pick a fight if you can't win it.

I've seen alliances which SUCKS at pvp, spamming 50 towers in a system hiding behind titans DD
while the other side that actually want to fight but hates POS-spamming loses the system.
The IDIOT that balanced POS's should be tazed in the nuts for as long as EVE remains.

I miss the old days when alliances minded their own damn business.

I miss the old days when you knew that if you brought a fleet of 20 to a hostile system, your enemies
would bring 20 ships and give a good fight. Today everyone's afraid of looking bad on the forums.

What did you expected? You are exactly describing the real world.

EvE is constantly evolving, just like real life societies. I don't see we're going back to good old fair(!) fights of ww1 anytime soon.

Yes, people never ever brought a superior force in the old days. Ever.

This post is stupid as hell.

Agree 100%. killboard stats and pos have killed the fun days. At no time should pos spamming been allowed to win a war. Make people actually have to defend instead of hiding behind pos numbers

which mythical version of eve where you playing?

the one where BoB was just after good fights and no one metagamed?
the one where ASCN wanted null sec to be jita?
the one where cva and ushra khan could hold hands and sing happy songs of love and peace?
the one where everyone honoured 1v1 and honor was important?

The eve i prefer is the eve born of Istvaan, seasoned with egotistical null sec muppets and served in Tyraax's pink hat with a zesty side salad of idiotic french in lower sinq liason.

No other game can offer that.

It is always funny and sad when a long time player finally breaks down and snaps...

A case of rose coloured glasses me thinks. Some of my memories of the early days are

Gates being Can Spammed
Certain Pirate Corps hitting and closing 1.0 newbie systems and pod killing everything,
Chat request/Gang Invite killing.

There have been trolls and griefers in the game since day one. They might have changed but they have always been there doing something to 'push the rules'.

As a result the game has evolved, the gankers/scammers and griefers have evolved, the whole player base has evolved.

So you need to evolve, or ship out if you don't like it.

No matter what you think, Eve is still the best game out there and is still, as far as I know, the only on-line game to get a mention on the BBC evening news!

Eve has to change, be it for good or bad in anybodies opinion, you need to live with those changes, or decide when Eve is not for you anymore.
The past has it's good and it's bad. But don't live in the past, you live in the now. Live with it!

In before the hoard of goon,pl, and napfest alts !!!!


yes, OP it is true what you say, although to be perfectly honest, it was CCP's shortsighedness that led to this failing due to the nature of carebears in space.


SO CCP, get off your arse and fix sov and change naptrains, 80% of eve 0.0 nap'd and fighting all others was this your version of how the game was played?

Will I have to pay 10.00 to goonswarm for forum access just to be allowed into space in the future?

kind of sad how CCP lets itself be dictated to by such.

I see you are not afraid...

Kudos to CCP for continually letting EVE evolve.

Isn't the winter expansion focusing on sov supposed to fix some of this stuff (specifically POS hugging)?

emphasis added.
Kill this, see the game change forever.
"No e-peen stats? what to fight for then? Shocked" ... Rolling Eyes
I've always hated the killboard system, for sole fact that it gave an external insentive to kill. Nothing to do in-game, no need for it. Just e-peen stats.

Read the words of the great sage on war... Sun Tzu:

Generally in warfare:
If ten times the enemy's strength, surround them;
if five times, attack them;
if double, divide them;
if equal, be able to fight them;
if fewer, be able to evade them;
if weaker, be able to avoid them. ?

Sonshi Online Resource

so.... 5:1 is when you attack.. not 1:1.
