Hi fella,
i understand you. I made a 5 month break and it was worth it. the game is very boring. you cant log in and have instant action like in other games. there i cant lose everything and this is pointless. i just relax and doing missions and search for npcs now. if you have some large lenses you dont need, i would take them. hard to get them where i am.

Sorry to hear about your dissatisfaction.

I'm pretty new, but committed to the game, (Saving up for my first battleship) and having that much ISK would just make things a lot easier. I don't expect to get it, since I didn't write nearly as much as some of the others, but if I do, thank you.

Give me your stuff because I'm smarter and better than anyone else posting in this thread.

And I like doing solo 0.0 PvP in pretty ships.

And I'm poor.


Your last statement disproves the first. ;-)

-Liang


The fact that you think so shows how stupid you are. I would say "shocking", but it honestly isn't.

Many good solo PvP'ers are fairly poor, usually due to the fact that they take risks in PvP and prefer to have great fights as opposed to just grinding X, Y, Z.

You should give me your stuff, because I am going to explain to you why you no longer think Eve is fun.

Bubble gatecamps. Low income, low excitement, lots of time invested. Mining - low income, no excitement, even more time invested. Roving 0.0 gangs - low income, low excitement, lots of time between kills. Structures on planets... I don't know, it sounds boring. Point is, you are doing the equivalent of blue-collar jobs in Eve.

You're like a construction worker, or beat cop, or infantryman, or whatever. The lowest rung of a multi-tiered system. You point out that some of your tasks amount to making someone else rich, just so you can break even; what if you could have others breaking their backs to make you rich, just so they could break even instead?

Me, I barely play Eve these days, if you clock the hours. Beyond idle ship spinning and the occasional trip to 0.0 to make capship-stealin' bookmarks, I don't need to expend hours of work and effort to enjoy the game. Any time I log on for an extended stretch, it's because I'm about to get even more stinking rich through thievery, or simply to have pure fun without the waiting. That's because I created an organization that generates money almost spontaneously. We cut out the blue-collar work, and go after the collected assets of entire entities. You break your back, amass your riches, and we come and help ourselves to them with relatively minimal effort. Just like real white-collar criminals.

If you want to have fun in Eve, consider the amount of "work" you have to do in order to "play" - try to adjust the ratio so there's little of the former, and lots of the latter.

I might be a wee newb myself, but I'm a long time mmo player, so I can understand the burn-out as it happens to everyone after a while.

That said, I think EVE encourages the hoarding mentality since they want to continue to fly bigger and better things all the while adhereing to the golden rule "don't fly what you can't afford to loose." It's pretty much and exponential isk requirement as your ships get bigger and have better stuff on them. Once you're pressured to have dozens of t2 ships at the ready, you've gone beyond the scope of solo activity and into the realm of what will certainly require group efforts.

I haven't got to see a "blob" fight yet (not really sure I want to, considering the lag I hear so much about), but I've been scouting null areas for about a week now and there seems to be plenty of areas where one doesn't necessarily have to slave away for hours to break even while still getting to do fun stuff. Then again, I guess it all depends on your definition of fun. =)

Enjoy your break from EVE and don't get rid of your stuff. I'm sure you'll be back at some point to have some fun again.

This is a smart man - but I'd like to point out that thievery isn't the only way to do this. Razz

You need to give your isk to me for the following reason. ISK gets lonely. Its true. ISK likes to gravitate to those people who already have piles of ISK so it doesnt get lonley. ISK likes to jump into piles of other ISK, swim around and play with the other ISK. Most of the people in this thread cant give your ISK a nice new STABLE home surrounded by the joys any happiness of playing with other ISK's.

I can.

They will blow your ISK on a ship, and then take it out and get it popped. I have no such worries, I have more than enough ships to last me a good long while, and I still have PILES of ISK left with which to give your ISK a nice, happy healthy stable home.

So dont abandon your ISK to sadness, lonliness, an unstable, abusive home. Bring it to a good place, a home where your ISK can play with my ISK, and bring delight on a daily basis. Ill take good care of it, grow it yet further, and bring other ISK to play with yours, and mine together. Think of it as a Humane Society for ISK.


Now - the second option, in case you are looking for something fun to do, and to stay in the game. I have an option for you that will solve your current dilemma which is one I share - I dont have a lot of time, and getting setup in this game takes A LOT of time - too much time in fact. I want to be able to log on, get into some heart pumping action, make some ISK (remember I like to increase the number of friends my cute little ISK's have, not decrease them) and then log off. I have only a few hours a week to do this. Ive found my option, and it is possible for others to do, and you might enjoy it too - hard to tell. No Im not going to post this option on the forums (no sense in ruining a good thing by over-populating it). EVE mail me in game if you're curious, doesnt take much explanation tbh.

Hello,

I've only been playing EVE for about 3 months. It has helped me get through the last part of very bad long year of being unemployed, when I thought I would go completely nuts. So I thank the game for that.

I have not yet had all the experiences you've had, but I'm looking forward to them.
I have wide-ranging interests, so the many activities in the game offer a lot of future opportunities. I guess that's the real point for me, having something to look forward to.

But now I am once again gainfully employed in RL, which makes my time in EVE even more precious now.

Sure, I'd like more ISK, like anyone else, but I don't really need it. I would probably give most of it away, just to help out a few people, brighten up someone's day, spread a little good cheer and goodwill around a game that, if you read enough of these posts, seems to be losing that feeling little bit.

Thank you for reading my post and good luck in your future endeavors, online, in another game, or in RL.

I would like your stuff or better yet to be in your place. I've only been playing for about 3 months. I played the 'other' game for 4 years and fell into the same pit you are in. Bored, done everything I felt like doing.

A friend gave me the same suggestion I'm going to give to you. Give your 'stuff' to a trusted friend for awhile and if you come back you can get your 'stuff' back. I did that about six months ago. I've went back to the 'other' game once and had same feeling as when I quit. Just bored.

Now EvE is brand new and exciting to me. So many times left to lose me ship it's unreal.
I got a lot of ships and battle to win/lose so there is some excitment left.


Take break and see how it goes.

Otherwise give some of your stuff to people who make you smile.Razz

I could try and be all pally with you, speak false words of encouragement and fake slaps-on-the-back saying 'well done, you've done everything i wanted to do but never have' or 'help a new player out'.

You've had a good go at Eve and it's not worked out. You're moving on. Good luck. I'd relish the chance to take your stuff off your hands and put it into good use as it sounds like it'd make me much happier than it has made you.

Everyone who posts here, wants your money. Nothing wrong with that, but you have to identify who actually needs it. If I were you, i'd spend a few more days in-game getting to know people you think really need it.

Maybe some new players who are enraptured by the game as you once were...hey let's face it, *everything* gets boring at some point, but at least, in the end, you can help someone out.

Why give it to one person when you can help out 5, 10, 50 people? New players often just need a bit of help, if you give 50 million or 1 billion to a new player, their heads will explode, and it'll be a waste of your generosity.

Good luck.

Hey mate i really agree with what you are doing... i think that it's great however sad that you are leaving eve. Lots of will power there! I just wanted to let you know that im doing something of the same effect, but have set up a project, and corporation to make sure that it works. Take a look, heres the web site Carriers Inc.. If you have any questions about anything you can contact me directly by joining the public channel "Carriers Inc", convo me or send me a mail. I'll be happy to answer any questions you have about the project, but one thing is for sure it will help alot of people (as i dont want the funds for myself). The funds would go to assist funding the project that is outlined in the website. If you do like this, make sure you let me know and send the isk to the corporation (Carriers Inc.) if you choose to assist. Just want to make it clear that this is not for me, its for the progression of the project that already has lifted off the ground and is on it's way..... however slowly.
I look forward to speaking with you!
Thanks for taking a look,
-Fleecy Leaf

Thrawns Visage
Posted - 2010.06.18 04:59:00 - [84]
 

Where do I start... well...

First: I'd like to congratulate CCP on not deleting this post. Most MMO's that I know of usually delete posts that are quit threads.

"WARNING DELETE THREAD METER RISING"
(____/______)

Second: I have sold all my ships and modules on the market so I can amass as much isk as I possibly can which is around 1.7bill total

Third: I've made up my mind. I'm not going to give it to any of you in one lump sum. Instead I'll give it my isk away 10k at a time in jita.... all you have to do is something that every despotic power hungry freak alliance commander wants some "blue collar lowlife to do" which is..... ya you guessed it....


...put an X in local

Laughing

Well now its the other way around. I'm going to pretend that "I AM AN ALLIANCE COMMANDER" Just to see how many people can be persuaded to man up, to set aside their time, to put aside their petty disputes and to "Just do it Pruitt"


Once im done I plan on bioshredding my this toon since I have sold all my ships to people that LOVE to .01 isk people. The .01 iskers got quite a supprise as my alts just sold about 890 million isk (ya a drop in the bucket when it comes to the jita market) worth of well... God knows what it was tbh. I just clicked on the sell button constantly. I hope i didnt get RIPPED OFF by all those people that put up buy orders of non liquid items. Razz You know the ones that put up a buy order hoping that Ping xhang wong would not quite read that last zero on the market screen and endup selling stuff at like 99.99% below the REGIONAL AVERAGE.

The whole reason why I made this post and why I have since bioshredded my other toons is simply to teach a lesson to myself in the future. Some kind of record to look back on. Its not like I hate the game. But after reading the dev blogs about lag and hearing other complaints and of course being a part of it myself. That was the pinnacle of the game for me. Its big fleet battles. Logging into the game with a big ship, with other pilots, shooting other big ships, each having their pilots in multiple systems blowing something up ALL THE TIME. You survive "if you survive" you then log in only to see more and more ships blowing up constantly. But it just cant happen. I'm sorry for wasting your guys/gals time. But after reading the RIDICULOUS amounts of eve-mail I got (over 200) I finally can give you a synopsis of just what kind of mails I received if it even matters.

They fell into 6 categories

1. Give me your isk/ships/mods so I can do "something" with it.

2. You've done a good job with the game at least you can give it to me.

3. I dont need the isk but my "friends" need it and I'll give it to them.

4. Just save yourself time and give me the isk

5. I'll use your isk to better the community.

6. I'm new and I can use your stuff

I found it absolutely amazing what people would do for ships and mods especially expensive ones. I think that CCP has created a monster. It would take WWIII to seperate people from there ships/mods let alone their game Laughing

The devs really have created something special with this game. A game full of cheaters trying to out cheat each other. Thats what I think it just boils down to but I had a hell of a time doing it. I find a certian sense of satisfaction actually bioshredding those other toons. Just because I can. It doesnt mean I cant just station trade a bunch of rare mods and ships from scratch again if I REALLY REALLY thought I would need to. Remember peeps its not what your toon(s) can do with others. Its what you can do with your toon(s).

Dont fly dangerous, Dont fly
safe, Just fly.

P.S. its going to be fun to see just how much of a dent I can put in this 1.8 billion isk. I might have to go in increments of 50k per X ugh

I don't like your tone..

Anyway, you have forgotton the basic point of this game, in fact you are too attached to it to enjoy it properly.

Learn to love the risk, get a buzz from the game, it's not to difficult to acheive, you need to relax.

Maybe we could all queue up outside Jita 4-4 and let you kill us one by one, you can even salvage our failfits if you like, so at least you get the fun of blowing something up for no risk...Is that what you want from Eve...?

I have been frustrated by this game many times .
Also: Bored, Mad, Offended, Concerned, Dissapointed, Etc.

BUT, one of the points of gaming is to get a relaxing break from RL. And most of the time I get that from EVE. I have met some good people here as well , and maybe you should consider a different corp?

You do have a conciderable investment in EVE . I recomend DON'T do anything you can't un-do.

Give your stuff to me and if you ever come back I'll return the value of it. I would do the same with your character if your interested. I'd return it right back, minus any real costs that have been accrued. (Skillbooks, Implants, Isk for monthly Plex's)

Think it over and catch me ingame if your interested.
