This is completely ridiculous.

Mining is something that often takes place in high security space, which is meant to safe. If I choose to mine in a safe place, that's exactly what it should be--safe.

CCP has given plenty of room for PVPers to roam in less secure places to get their fix for PVP. I leave these people alone, and they should leave me and my friends alone, too.

If CCP wanted PVP in safe space, there would be no CONCORD. As far as I am concerned, this is harassment, and CCP will put an end to it.

Unbelievable.

High Sec is safeR, not safe.

There is only one safe place in EVE, and that's sitting in a station.





I am waiting for the day that you will be able to throw a Titan on a station. You?

Hulkaggedon is good for the mining business. Clears out competition and causes a rise in mineral prices. This will make more money for the enterprising care-bear in the long run. <QQ >GG

If every affected miner put 25% of what they mined in a separate stack then a lot of cash could be raised to get someone in to take care of things!

I am seriously considering if perhaps a class action lawsuit may be in order to keep gameplay fair and balanced as well as prevent real life consequences such as stress and depression from affecting pilots who may be targetted in this unlawful act.



You serious or in for the lols?

Gratz to the thread creator for creating the most stupid post i ever read.

My main may do carebear stuff 95% of the time, but i play this game because stuff like hulkaggeddon IS allowed and if a non-PVP server was created there is no way in hell i would play on it. This game is meant to be harsh and dying costly.
If you cant live with that, please cancel your subscription and go find another game.

I have been mining for awhile now and find your insinuation that i am a 2/10 or whatever that means is offensive and reportable. this is a game yes but when it impacts peoples real lives and causes undue stress and anxiety it is time to look at the people who try to bring that to you.

maybe the best solution is like other successful games and make pvp only server and then server for those who are peace loving and wish to build relationships and fun.

shame on those who want to see others suffer.


If you want relationships and fun I would prob go to a datingsite and not a game...

This is very true and the fact that evildoers can come and shoot us up in safe security space and we lose everything and they get insurance is criminal.


George? :O

@topic: Hisec does work. Concord is there for a reason. Concord Deters most people from killing hisec, and if you knew what you where doing you would have a good enough tank on your hulk to be able to tank your gankers out until concord pops them(This is assuming they aren't flying a fleet of either 20 frigates or 4 or 5 ravens) which is doubtable. Check battle clinic for some nice fits to do that if you can't manage to figure one out for yourself. As for real life psychological consequences of having your virtual ship blown up in this virtual game, well... if there are actual psychological consequences from your virtual ship being popped on this virtual game please cancel your Eve online subscription, and see a psychiatrist, or even check yourself into a hospital because you sir have issuesRolling Eyes.

The is only one certain fact about EVE and CCP. If players start doing things to other players that cause a mass reduction in accounts, CCP will not only fix the issue, but they will ban the person causing the loss to their real world income.

True.

But I wouldn't wait for the Banhammer to strike hulkageddoners, cause there WON'T be a mass reduction in accounts. Get over it.

True.

There wont be a MASS reduction. But do you think it will attract ccp if 25 to 50 ppl emorage-quit because of this furious event?

I do think so, and as ccp wont wait till helicity is bored again to organize hulkageddond III, im sure some action ccp-side will follow.

To my side of view, hopefully this event killed a lot of macroers and afkers, and what i read from the killboards most of those ppl should learn how to fit a hulk instead of whining on multiple threads. One, who fits his hulk with 3 CIVILIAN SHIELDBOOSTERS, deserves to die! I even saw fittings with empty mid slots - ridiculous.

Anyway, im sure helicity wont be ccps best friend after that show.

IMHO, CCP want player driven things like HAG. The game is about conflict between players... thats what CCP wants.

What do you think would attract more people to the game....>

1. You can AFK mine in complete safety.

2. You can participate in player driven events that cause controversy and splosions across the whole of the Eve galaxy.

I am a self confessed carebear and I know which I would choose.

If you are the sort of person who is going to emoragequit (Waaaaaa MUM THEY BLEW UP MY SHIP I NEED A HUG>... WAAAAAAAA) because someone ganked your Huik, then, all joking aside, you are really playing the wrong game!

To the OP I'll let you into a little secret, something I've known almost right from the moment I started playing this game... HI SEC IS NOT SAFE Their you have it, now go away and think on that then re-read your post and you'll realise what an idiot you are. If you want to be safe I suggest you dock up and never undock again becasue thats the only safty you'll find in this game!

FINALLY, some voices of reason. This is very true and the fact that evildoers can come and shoot us up in safe security space and we lose everything and they get insurance is criminal. This needs fixed now. We cannot as gaming community condone this level of evil and antisocial behavior against other human beings.

Hulkageddon is a step in de-evolution.


Yes that is part of the job of beein pirate :)

does real criminals give a rats ass bout police, ofc not they still do their dirty work just like pirates in eve do it.
I lost a ship due to hulkageddon but at this point of the game all i can do is to quote one criminal from tv series
"All in the game yo, all in the game."

Well, to be honest, every time some players don't like something, there's a cry that "it will kill the game". I heard it oh-so-many times and it has never been true, so far, in my experience.

People that fly in hulks have dedicated a lot of skills and at least a month or so of training to it (I should be calc'ing the minimum amount of time to it, but can't be bothered now :p). I don't think they'll be going out of the game for that only.

But, for the argument sake, let's assume that 50 people leave the game. The alternative is banning everyone who participated in hulkageddon as a statement, which will drop more than 50 accounts, and seriously deplete the pirate population, I think: this means more loss for CCP.

Still, I don't think HAG2 had that much of an influence: I think most miners will just wait a couple days then buy another hulk and go back to mining. I believe most pirates will do what they've done so far and keep their ganking to losec and nullsec for the most part, using tactics like canflipping and harassment to lure not-so-smart people into attacking THEM.

Something will probably be done on CCPs side, like reducing or removing insurance for concordokken victims, which I'd find perfectly fine. I don't think it will go so far as to banning a large population: and I certainly would not like that to happen - even if I'm on the "receiving" side of HAG, being a miner. Makes sense?

Well, dunno about the hulk but I've fielded ships with empty slots (couldn't fit more cuz of the cpu/grid limits). I've been told 2 civilian boosters are great against hi-sec rats since they can go on forever and they give enough boost.
Of course, if I had planned to mine into a HAG week, I'd have fitted my hulk with as few modules as possible, using buffer (extenders and hardeners) as a tank and pre-aligning. I don't have to fight back or anything, just be alive when I warp out. No tank will allow me to SURVIVE a gank, if it's determined. Even if I had a pvp fitted ship, the suicide gankers have too many advantages: numbers, surprise (if they catch me), dps. They know they'll be killed so they don't need tank, which means ships fitted for dps.

Well, CCP wants the players to enjoy eve. Even the miner community is divided about HAG: I for one think is a nice event. The amount of whining that has happened on the forums far surpasses the number of reasonable posts (like yours) that discuss an argument, which means the community will probably be more sympathetic with the pirates than with the miners.
And even at best I don't think miners are even half the eve population.

Ohhh what a wonderful little topic... Can't resist a little trolling Razz

To the whinging little carebear miner: May I pwetty pwease put one of my loveable Torps in your Hulk? Razz

Advise - Find a high-sec system with an empty Local (there are still lots) and do your Mining thingy there whilst keeping an eye on local. Align to your Station and decrease speed to 0 m/s. Ready to Warp when a Red pops in local. E-Z

I do honestly feel bad for the OP and I think that people who have recommended that they try Everquest or WoW should be ashamed of themselves. Those games also have lots of rude jerks and tons of pointy things on which a person can get hurt or sometimes even killed.

Instead, I'd like to recommend Second Life... it's waaaay safer than either of those, and nobody can kill you, ever. Occasionally someone might say something rude to you, which sometimes makes us feel bad, but then we make each other pretty dresses and tell happy stories to one another, and feel all better.

(It's actually a lot more fun than it sounds.) Try it!

Laugh all you can but there are nutjobs that would take the case. And I bet is that they have caused the real life financial dmg as even an internet ship has $$ value.

Not that I agree with the op its just being silly but IF someone got money from Mcdonald's because they spilled coffe on their lap and was too hot ....

There will always be someone trying it. In Italy tho, you can sue only for "direct and quantifiable damage", so this could not be done here.
