Me and my group have been in Thiarer for 5+ years,
mining was fantastic,
Ice belt 1 jump away
market was profitable
High sec pos for all all our needs..
and when bored of mining, level 4 mission's (security) were available in the same station,
Now the level 3 & 4 missions are now couriers, pay less than the level 2 missions, market is.. we'll put it this way, the market might aswell not exist!

why ? all becuase they want to change the security mission to a courier mission.. WHY ?????????

I've travelled a lot of places (in high sec) and there doesnt seem to be any sort of balance between the two, your either mining or missions, if you want a POS nearby then tough, you'll have travel.

Tried sending petions, mailing senior GM's but no one's interested..
I'm starting to get bored.. Evil or Very Mad

ITT: I want to do the same exact thing I have done for six years, (probably flying the same ship for the last 5) and I am very upset that CCP has changed things.

In other news, I have to go re-organize my 14 identical pairs of Adidas Sambas by purchase date.

spyder steve,

yeah I understand what you're saying. It's a shame Eve is no longer the great game that it used to be.

The game we used to know has been drastically nerfed, dumbed down and turned into a simple no brainer point and click fest that is slowly dying. This game has become filled with a lot of scammers, gankers, thieves and griefers. The Forums have turned into nothing more than a sarcastic EPEEN swinging Troll house.

Both the game and the Forums are just a Blob War now.

There's still a few helpful friendly players left, not like it was years ago. Most of those remaining have become very suspicious and are very cautious about offering assistance, both in-game and in these Forums.

Yes, I still play this game and will continue to do so until the day it finally dies, which will probably happen within the next few years. I admit that the game has lost some of it's appeal and is slowly becoming boring to me as well. I find myself not logging in as much or staying on-line as long as I used to do. I'm also not answering as many Forum threads as I used to either.

I hope you don't give up, I know I won't. It would be a shame to waste fully developed characters that have already paid their dues.

They changed the Thiarer agent to distribution? Gah....

As someone who has enjoyed running missions down there in the past, I feel your pain. It was a beautiful location, best mission running spot I ever found.


I have another gripe with the change to the agents which has nothing to do with the fact that agent x or agent y was changed - its simply that the whole agent system change was not thought through - there are entire corps which no longer have (high level) combat agents and which have been turned into a mess for people who want to try to get standings there.

It was one of those instances of - hey lets dumb the game down, not think about the consequences and whatever else we do, lets not go back and try to fix the problems we created. So yeah - the game lost flavour and interest in the great agent nerf. And don't get me started on how it's changed lowsec mission running either.

I think the OP provides a stellar example of the opposite: he can no longer use the dumbed-down, no-brainer, click-fest:y method of sitting in the same place for days on end, and instead has to engage in some actual thinking and (gasp!) playing around with the game. All of that as a result of a mission-running buff.

Working better than intended, I say.

Not really.

As far as dumbed-down, no-brainer cliky-festy stuff you can still do it. The only thing which has changed is that you have a lot more options to find a no-brainer cliky-festy place than you had before, and it's a lot easier to find those places now. And you get more out of it too as all agents are highest quality now!

I can see how this has caused a transition (some of the old good places are no longer worth the while - Gicodel and Thiarer fall in this category) but there are a whole lot of new places where it's a happy bunny clicky fest land. If anything the change has resulted in mission running requiring less thinking, not more.

Merely because the change has caused a transition (which all changes do to a greater or lesser extent) does not mean that the new state is a more interesting one.

All I can say is there is more to Eve than mining, missioning and I don't even want to know what you do at the POS. The fact you did is for 5 years is, well, staggering. I did it for 6 months. Then I said goodbye to hisec life. I think 6mos was too long, honestly.

Wait hes complaining that it got more complex, and you say you understand and then cite how it got less complex?

At least you got the troll part right.

Heh, learn reading comprehension before you start throwing stones.

The OP is actually complaining about the Division change that was done to Agents, which changed the type of missions being offered. And by the way, that change has dumbed down the game now since all Agents are the same quality.

I don't see anywhere in the OP saying the game is now more complex. And thanks to you, your posting has proved my point about the Forums.
