After this latest patch none of our regular movie makers have made anything recently new.

It may be too soon after the patch but lack of vids is scaring me a little!

Is it too hard to small gang pvp in eve these days?

Its nto dieing, it's changing..solo is becoming close to impossible, why? Ecm everywhere, if you attack 5 people with your uber tank batlleship and they don't have an ecm ship, guaranteed 75% of the gang has ecm drones instead. This is particularly bad in 0.0, NAPS everywhere, solo person jumps to region and everyone is after them, ecm, rr, tackle..they WILL bring it for one person, no one will ever engage you alone unless they are fit to escape.

I can't say much for lowsec tho but 0.0 is Defo changing and ccp are making it harder for the average solo pvper, not the players.

Its not the players fault that drakes and canes are basically the only BC about, that ecm is so powerful and damps so bleak.

When I go out to fight, I often.plus up my kinetic resist its that had, I put kinetic resist rigs on hookbills/drams/HAWKS because the first ship to show up is a bloody Drake

regarding solo;
- small ships are boring to me when its the only successful method
- kiting is boring as ****, no matter what you're in
- increasingly difficult to engage/escape blob warfare, especially in larger ships
- personally, my wallet isk large enough to fund pvp that i find entertaining enough to make a video out of (as eve sits right now)

i do however have close to 2hrs of unedited footage i'll sift through when i get around to it Smile

Hi there. Thanks for the nod as vid maker but im not on par with those other guys. However to answer your questions. No I really dont play any more. Yes eve has become highly populated with many people that will not engage unless they "know" they can win.

More so as to why I do not make videos anymore.... The last three tournaments have drained me dry. With 2 thirds and a backstabbing 8ish this year. Our team saw no returns for our investments which over the last three years exceeded 40 bil isk. So Im broke, and cant be asked to build up my wallet in a game that is progressively getting worse every patch.

Sorry man,

gl to everyone

Hi!

I've recently made a return to EVE and so far its been awesome.

I've been missing for awhile and my sense of game state isnt perfect, but so far i've been really happy with the rate and quality of engagements that i've been able to get. i've been a bit disappointed in some spots with people's hesitation to engage when the odds look close to even, but on the flip side i've seen a lot less falcon abuse which is fantastic.

I've been hearing that eve is dying since at least 2007 but every time i come back and go looking for fights, i find them <shrug>. Eve has never been easy but personally i haven't really noticed it getting any harder.

As far as videos go, don't get your hopes up from me just yet. I want to do it but so far I've been flying with this alliance of new pilots and my gangs have been a bit too big and my fights a bit too one sided (either solid win or horrible loss) so as of now i dont really have any worthy footage.

maybe eventually though =)

Kil maybe we should try to go out in a two man gang. I obviously cannot afford "my" Battleships anymore, but might be fun to go in a mega / tempest.... ect.

Hit me up if interested 8)

Same for low sec dude.
Many soloters feel the same. But somewhere in this disappointing point, there is a harder challenge tho. Maybe giving some time to the "young new solo pvpers", and also to the old shool ones, to adapt themselves to this new challenge, is the best we can do. After all, every new generation is said to be better than the previous one, so let's hope it will be the same in Eve.

Eve has been dying for years. Solo has always been hard and it will continue to be hard, but all the falcons and blobtards in the world won't stop those of us who enjoy it.

As far ad vidyas go there is always calm time and hot times in terms of video releasing, the last few months have been relatively quiet, aside from Kovorix's mad hyperspeed video making, but I'd say you can expect a few people to release videos soon. Hell I'd been sitting on min since june, was just waiting for a few final clips before I released it.

It has never been that easy to succumb to a cyno-gank. On the other hand flying penny-pincher's ships exclusevely all the time is as boring as frigate fights.

Plus the game mechanics itself hasn't changed for ages and nowaydas even most incompetent ones know how to assemble a fleet consisting of several logistics, recons and so on. Ships themvselves are also pretty much examined thoroughly and most of those timid folks know what to expect, thus they don't engage unless being absolutely assured of a safe gank.

We die a little everyday, my friend, but we live a little at the same time. Eve is not gonna die anytime soon. It's changing, that's for sure (and perhaps not for the better), but not at threat of extinction. You're at greater risk of unsubing than Eve flopping over. In short, so long as you're willing to hang around by enjoying the game without letting the odd bad day get to you, you'll be happy to know that you'll still be able to login tomorrow (unless it's patch day).
