I just mined for HOURS with my corp mates! Wow what an exciting game! I can't wait to do this again and again and pay money for it! Incredible! How did you think up such amazing gameplay.

First I warped to a belt, then my ship stopped, slowly easing out, like butter on hot teflon. Next I clicked on a turret, it started to blink, cool! I clicked on my second turret, that one blinked too but slightly offset from the first! Exciting!!!! I mean watching your trailers online I never imagined that eve would be even more fun then your videos! Blinking icons, never showed it in trailers but I love it, definitely add ice mining to your next trailer it's WAY cool!!!!

Finally I clicked on an ice asteroid and this was the best part, two thin lasers fired a blue moth captivating glow. I just watched and watched the blue glow for hours it was great!

Thanks for excellent game play and super fun ice mining game!!!

I thought this was done only by bots.

Have fun!

seriously though, shouldn't ice mining just be a module you attach in space and when you return from logging out there is ice in there. No human should ever have to ice mine, no wonder it's a macro job. It's cruel and mean and I feel cheated when I pay money, RL money for something that should have the same mechanic as research agents.

NO MORE ICE MINING IN EVE! IT SUCKS SO BAD IT MAKES YOU WANT TO COMMIT MURDER!

REMOVE ALL ICE BELTS NOW!!!!!!

So, your suggestion is to nerf PvP?

No, allow me to enlighten you grasshopper. Mining ICE should never ever have been implemented in the first place. It was poorly thought out and abandoned FOR PVP. Eve is a pvp game and ice mining is a cancer of EVE and it's markets.

This is how I make Ice Mining exciting!

1.Warp to belt
2.Start mining laser
3.Use in game browser to look up pron.

Bonus mini-game: Try to finish as soon as your laser cycle ends!

I heard ice mining was invented by ****** in order to give Jewish Eskimos cancer!

+1 for a creative way of saying ice mining sucks, -5 for invoking the C word.

Mining-bots are valuable source of fun for casual hi-sec gankers. Removing them would introduce another level of boredom to hi-sec.

Sometimes I miss mining. There is something serene about sitting there, zoning out to flickering mining lasers, their soft hum gently caressing one's eardrums.

For extra fun, try to park your ship so that someone else's mining laser is going through your ship.

Do you even understand what a troll is you dimwit? Don't use words you don't understand OK? Look up what a troll is then post something intelligent. I know it's difficult for you but try anyway.

Maybe after "walking in stations" hits to server they'll let ya walk on roids and you can ice mine with a pick axe and bucket. There's some fun times waiting to happen there.

Blame the carebears.

They used to be normal asteroid belts, but, as we all know, space is cold.

Mining was always boring to begin with. Miners cried.
Supply and demand made ore worth less. Miners cried.
Gankers started having a field day in belts. Miners cried.
Macros and botters took the miners' jobs. Miners cried.

All the tears accumulated around their once-loved rocks, freezing into the monolithic crystalline beasts you molest with lasers today.

And with every passing day, your tears make the frozen collective of your complaints grow.

I have nothing worthwhile to add.


It's ice mining which is stupid. The fact that it takes 1 maxed out Mackinaw pilot + 1 maxed out Orca pilot 4 days of 5 hours relentlessly stabbing out their eyes with a blunt spoon to get 1 month worth of isotopes, now that is stupid.

More so since there is no challenge what so ever in it. It is as if CCP designed it to be used with macro bots in the back of their skulls.

I love it too but I wouldnt say it was way cool.
I can wash the car, mow the grass, do the laundry and catch up on all sorts of stuff as long as I'm back at the computer every 7 minutes or so.
I just wish there was a way I didn't have to come back after the 7 minutes tho. Like if there was an auto unload to orca and then a mode for the orca to dock, unload and return.
Now that would be way cool cos I could still be in eve and yet not having to keep pressing keys.
