REMOVE ALL ICE BELTS NOW!!!!!!


I call TROLL!
He is just trying to lure you into a pointless argument that the way he likes to play the game is better than yours. Ignore the Troll and let him wander away...

Dons Troll resistant sunglasses Cool


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.


Oh .. I know to respond is just feeding the Troll, but I can't resist...

Don't you love the way that Trolls are so easily distracted from the original argument that they just resort to pointless name calling?

TROLL:Makes point about how he hates ice mining so that it MUIST be removed... hoping to snare the "I love ICE" crowd.
Moi: Identifies Troll, points out the beginnings of pointless argument.
TROLL: Fearing identification, switches to another pointless argument (Troll definition) and starts name calling.

No need for me to look up the definition of Troll, I just watch Garus Banta at work Very Happy

... and Mr Troll .. if you want a sensible conversation, you can make some points about why Ice mining should be removed, something with substance that I could rebut.

Oh dear, what am I saying... "Sensible" .. from a Troll? ha ha haaa ha ha

OP has a point. To make things interesting, I think the lumps of ice and rock should move.

And do damage on impact.

Like in the classic arcade game Asteroids.

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.


the bold i can agree with, replace it with PI, normal mining or change it to make it better.
the underlined text is a false statement, eve is a sandbox you do what you want not what yarrtards want.
the italics is just a stupid statement which is at the same time false.

finally
obvious troll but funny read

Simple solution: deployable ice mining base, ain't cheap and requires a ton of skills (ice mining to V is a given plus a few others to spice things up) and only has like 3 units of ice mined per hour (or something like that) with lets say 72000 m3 of cargo space, you can access it remotely like you would a planetary colony and counts as one (so it takes up one of the slots). All you need to do is deploy it and then every day or so collect the ice (it is still intensive and ideally the mining base itself undeployed should take around 14.000 m3 and require anchoring skills to IV) and bases should be expensive undertakings and come Dust 514 should also be subject to possible boarding actions.

Anyway that's my take on a solution ^^.

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.


CCP are implementing a version of minecraft?

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!!!

Welcome to Eve!

Actually my favourite part of the game is offline training.

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

REMOVE ALL ICE BELTS NOW!!!!!!

Personally I'm happy that EVE also leaves space for the mentally challenged to still be useful for the EVE community.

No difficult game mechanics that only the spreadsheet warriors understand, no lightning fast relexes needed - and still being a part of the great industrial subgame that's called jump drives and POSses.
I think there's a bit of hidden Icelandic humanity here that embraces and encourages people to use whatever talents they have and to earn their place and appreciation in the game community.

Hats off, CCP!

CCP should use a minigame, like the Mass Effect 2 probe game, where you scan the surface and watch the frequency resonate then click at the right spot.... or something like that, with mini challenges. Shifting frequencies, so you have to activate modules to compensate the scan etc.

Could also be justified easily: Rocks are big and you are looking for the sweet spot of ore. The rest is useless rock.
