If you dont want to read all this then just leave me an eve-mail of why you should have a billion isk. I'll also be giving away isk to a second and third place eve-mail

5 reasons why I will be cancelling ALL my accounts.

1. Sitting by a warp disruptor bubble for 4 hours killing shuttles and pods isnt fun.

2. Flying in roving gangs in 0.0 from empty system to empty system with litteraly no one in them isnt fun.

3. Mining in 0.0 just to make other people rich just to break even isnt fun.

4. Clicking on structures on planets just to make a tiny amount of isk isnt fun.

It just took me a while to figure out that everything in the game that I could accomplish can only be done if I spend at least 4+ hours a day at it. Maybe im just not smart enough to do it quicker without risking all/part of my assets to someone I hardly even know. Who knows... at least im honest with myself about this game and am no longer lying to myself.

I've done just about everything in the game I could possibly accomplish without giving you guys (CCP) like $2000 cash which i think is a bit much. ( ok I may be exagerating just a lil) but you get my drift.

Things I've done:

Trading, Mining, hauling, 0.0 fleet engagement pvp, blob pvp, suicide killing, scanning,

scouting, WH'ing, PI'ing, mission running, manufacturing, ninja mining, 0.0 ninja ratting

What I havent done:

0.0 plexing, capitol ship pvp, WH pvp, capitol ship mission running

I've been in 4 if you want to call them 'fleet engagements' of several hundred ships at once in a system and just let me say that it was LAAAAAAAAG!!!!!!!

I only have to blame myself for paying for this game for this long and hoping 0.0 pvp would be lag free but oh well. At least im going to put my isk where my mouth is. I've given you guys around $300 and I can safely say I had a blast spending that much money exploring YOUR game. I guess I got caught up in the 'we'll fix it soon' mantra after each patch. I would rather have less content and have it done well then lots of content that just sux and is borken.

Once your fault, Twice your fault, but three times.... I'm pretty sure its my fault. (should have figured out the first 2 times Laughing ) Well played CCP. For a game that allows cheating at long as the EULA isnt broken you guys/gals sure have gotten alot of my hard earned American
cash with a game that is in essence still busted. I'm a fool for paying for this i'll admit I WAS SCAMMED... not by players in a game that you have created. BUT BY YOU THE CREATORS OF EVE ITSELF!! At least im a fool with just a lil bit of extra money in my pocket now. :) good on ya CCP I'll be reading the boards to see just how many people still end up paying you to be scammed out of hard earned currency. Good luck and my the farce... ahem... force be with you. :) Oh btw if I could fly capitol ships against npc's/rats in empire (yes a boost in epeen against non human computerized rats) EAT MY FIGHTER BOMBERS YOU RATS YEEEHAAAA! I would continue to pay subscriptions and train up carriers/dreadnaghts etc. but I dont think thats ever going to happen. (yes that would be carebear but at least better than what it is now)

Getting more and more people interested in at least GROUPING UP in high security missions would be great but after years... and years... and years... and years of sucky boring missions that can be soloed for isk is just plain boreishness.

You guys (the scammed public) can have my stuff.... but only if you give me a good reason to give it to you and I will. i have only around a billion isk to give away which really isnt that much but its at least something I can give back to the community that has helped me try to love this game so much. You guys (the scammed community) are a smart bunch. Maybe you guys like being scammed. In any case.... See ya guys sometime before my account expires... in jita for the give away ugh

how can it be in the wrong section when my isk can be used to buy ships/modules. Thats what i'll be giving away ships/modules as well as isk.

Posted - 2010.06.16 03:12:00 - [4]

Its a shame for a player you like you do all those things that I've done less than half and become dissatisfied, I don't blame you though CCP has been sloppy and lazy with their work. I want to try out 0.0 but I've been trying to raise some isk to prepare for it. I still have long ways to go and I need to have a back up plan if I find disappointment or be betrayed.

If you're into to space games perhaps you can take a look at Jumpgate: Evolution, its being made by Codemasters and it looks like an interesting twitch based combat game.

Jita is NOT the place for a giveaway. Best to just give to your friends instead of the generally undeserving "community"...

Going to 0.0 especially with ships and modules that are expensive is a COLLOSAL waste of time unless you have sufficiant backup to protect yourself. It is fun for awhile to evade ships or attack convoys but it rarely happens. And when conflict happens its wonderful. It just doesnt happen enough to justify bringing REALLY EXPENSIVE ships/modules.

Posted - 2010.06.16 03:49:00 - [7]

People in Jita probably are the best people to get the money. Scams for expensive modules happen all the time there. Exept THIS IS NOT A SCAM. I'll never ask for money I'll just give my ships/mods/isk away to people that will either get it suicide bombed or hopefully use it to blow people up in 0.0. After all people go to jita to either scam or be scammed. Remember people like taking chances on being scammed especially if they station trade there. Razz

If you don't think that's fun either just send the billion to a scammer in jita. It'l make his day.

I've tried this solo 4 times in the past week.

2-3 hour roams in low sec that either have me:

1) Roaming around for 3 hours and never getting a fight

2) Having to avoid blobs of ships

3) Having people who could POTENTIALLY give me a fight, just running from me.

Yea... it really hasn't been that much fun.

I am in Faction Warfare and I make it a priority to to ruin at least 2 players day, everyday. And I would like funding to continue doing this as I LOATHE running missions and my alt is still not ready to produce BPCs.

Is this satisfactory for you stuff? Smile

Posted - 2010.06.16 05:12:00 - [14]

Well my good fellow, glad to see your not a ragetard about quitting. your final speech made me feel that you did indeed enjoy your time but now your ready to move on.

I just joined not too long ago and haven't experienced all those things yet so if your willing to give me a boost of items i'd appreciate it.

Posted - 2010.06.16 05:18:00 - [15]

Just quit...without the whine, okay?

Posted - 2010.06.16 05:56:00 - [16]

o/ Good luck with whatever you decide to play next, hope you enjoy it more then it sounds you did eve.

Im a relatively new char whos trying my hand at indy stuff, and its all so damn expensive. 1 bill would go along way to buying 1 or 2 good bpo's so i can eventually build up the isk and skill points to go and do what you have tried, and semi enjoyed until the boredom kicked in.

Or you could take a risk on a month old noob and make there day :P

First off i probably dont need your money. Im a more than a year old character, but i have not had the opportunity or the time in game to do half the things you have. Its nice to see someone who is quitting the game with some class instead of making a whine post and then rage uitting. To many people in eve perpetuate this whole "dont trust in eve, no one can be trsuted." yet these same people complain that no one fleets up and flys together. If you could trust people in eve, and trust not just not to shoot you, but not to rob you or scamm you then there would be a community. Until the people in game decide its more important to have fun than to be evil to each other this game will never take off like every other MMO. The sub numbers are inflated by people with alts, and even then if each sub was one person, we still would be beaten by nearly all of the Major MMOs out there.

Don't give anyone your stuff.

Liquidate it and convert it into 3 plex.

Then when the next expansion comes around, use one of the plex to see if the game is any better for you. CCP also tend to offer lapsed players a few free days here and there to tempt them back, having plex sitting on your account means you can subscribe for a quick 30 days should you choose.

EvE is one of those games where everyone hits "the wall" at some point in time and gets sick of things. A good number of players who quit and then come back quit again when they have to start completely from scratch and remember the better position they used to be in.


Convert your stuff into Plex, pop back for a month for the next 3 expansions to see if anything takes your fancy.

Im a simple trader.
You have been a trader yourself.
You know what its like trading and how important a good capital is.

What ill do with your isk?
Fight manipulators. Oh the joys of destroying those who wish to control profits only for themselves and giving it back to the people!!

The isk you will send me will ruin billions of the few and earn more trader billions on the long run. MINI SANDBOX effect on the market. All because you gave this man your money, you might touch the lives of several trader players ^^.

Wow.. I didnt expect all these responses Very Happy

If I could transfer the accounts without paying the $15 I would give away all of my accounts as well. But then again I think giving away the accounts without paying the 15 bux would go against the EULA. As well as the ships and items.. im pretty sure its against the EULA to not only give accounts away but also the ships and items that include them. Ya well after around 4 years of trying lots of different things I must say it was a journey and an enriching experience to at least explore the many facets of this game. The only problem is that its JUST SO DAMED BIG. It took me literally months and months to research just what to do in the game. This is just a small example of what I tried out.

whats pvp like and are the ships/modules worth it.
whats using a pithi shield boosted hulk like in 0.0 (eyes glued to local)
whats scanning like with the new scanning system
whats it like bum rushing 3 groups in angel extravaganza.
whats it like healing/remote repping a teamate in a mission.
whats it like station trading and playing the .01 isk game.
Whats it like hireing someone to take out another player.
Whats it like trying to kill people at a bubble.

The only thing i really havent done is faction warfare and the other things in my first post. But for what ive read it really wouldnt be worth it if there isnt any insentive to do it other than crappy ships/modules that really suk. There would have to be a decent reason for me to even try faction warfare. Rememeber... setting up something to do in this game is VERY VERY TIME consuming. What would it take to get prepared for faction warfare.. oh I dont know maybe just this...

Do I have enough ships. Might need to buy some
Do i have enough ammo. MIght need to make some.
Do i have enough mods. Might need to go out and collect them.
Do I have enough help. Might need to go recuit some peeps.
Do I have enough ISK.......UM...... WELL...... maybe :)

And thats just the 'DO I HAVE ENOUGH' questions.. then theres the..

Do I have the right setup.
What ships am I going to fight.
am I set up for the right resistances.

remember if you prepare yourself your survival goes up. I you just grab ship and go your probably going to die..ALOT FASTER. At least when it comes to PvP.

Sorry but getting enough LP points to get a navy megathron just for that extra slot is just RIDICOULSLY STUPID.

i can go on.. and on.. and on...

Its basically like well... shall I compare this game to the game that SHALL NOT BE MENTIONED WORLD OF WARCRAFT Rolling Eyes

Its like having 50+ classes to choose from that ALL DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT
They all look diferent, they all play different, they all start in a different place, they all use different weapons, they all use different types of armor, playstyle etc.. It would take a long time just to find a nitch.. then after you find that nitch you determine that the nitch just isnt for you so you try something else hoping that better items would make the difference. but alas it doesnt.

sort of like that is what happned to me during my eve "career" if you want to call it that. Hoping the game would change for the better especially for capitol ship pilots with massively expensive mods btw would be great but its just taking SOOOO FREAKING LONG to fix stuff like 0.0 lag etc.

I've gotten some decent responses on here so far so I'll stop back and keep reading this post on ships and mods. Keep sending the mails as I've already got some good responses. Which clearly lets me know that this game IS NOT DIEING. The ships look cool as heck. The modules while expensive are GOD LIKE. Theres nothing like tanking 0.0 rats in a hulk with that pithi shield booster. With all that being said I'm at least greatful that this thread hasnt been not taken off by the devs as being just another ragequit. I'm not mad.. frustrated maybe.. burned out.. well.. maybe.. but I just want people to enjoy the time they play while being... well... scammed Twisted Evil

First of all, don't give everything away as you may come back one day and should have some capital to get you started.

Second, I have an alt trader in jita who could use an injection of capital to make the step up into the major leagues.

Just a question.

Since you got a vast experience in this game.

Have you had the chance to put up your own corporation?

Might be a good try to tutor new pilots on the different ventures they may engage on EVE. Help new ones stand on their feet with your experience.
You might get a burst of inspiration knowing that youre playing also for the sake of your members.
From what Ive read, all your experience place you on the receiving end. Why not try being in command, im sure youll help a lot, that in itself is very satisfying.

That way you can spend your ISK and assets to help them and call it a job well done.

Lots of whine there... what you people forget is that its often not the game itself that makes it boring but the players playing it. CCP has given you a great sandbox and it's up to you what you make out of it. There are no fights to find so you have to roam around for 3 hours?
True, but is it the game's fault? I'd say its rather the players who are too greedy to lose 30 mil in a battlecruiser, which they could earn back by an hour of ratting/missionrunning/whatever. Rather than have some fun, they sit in a station and **** their pants.
Same applies to blobbing, everyone just playing it safe, too afraid to lose a ship- the more there are in a group, the less is the chance of being destroyed. Its logical and safer to get a bigger group going but it's also boring. It's a tradeoff. You decide which is more worth to you- fun or safety.
Tell me about a game that has a better solution. In other MMO's death isnt penalized so the people PvP more often. Do you want the same in Eve? I don't think so. A pvp situation in WoW means nothing, you go to a battleground and grind your ass off. After thousands of kills there is no enjoyment or thrill anymore, its just a grind.

tl,dr: PvP is what you make of it, the prerequsites are there.

Now that I have explained that for you I can haz that billion? I need to buy a couple of plexes since the prices are falling again.

Quoted for truth

what you should do is fight the blob, try and take 1 out, its gonna hurt them alot more than you.
You chose to mine to make other people rich and is foolish full stop.
Roaming in groups (blobs) will only make the blob problem worse.

you seem to have got stuck in a rut and cant think your way out of it. Quit, keep your stuff and come back when you have fresh ideas

4 matari childs to feed, a divorce from an abusive, money grabbin' wife and a lot of amarr scums to take down seems good reasons enough to me Razz

Posted - 2010.06.16 13:36:00 - [30]

Give me the ISK, since it seems we are soulmates. For the exact same reasons I cancelled 3 accounts 1.5 years ago, and now came back after the expansion to see that PvP got even worse.

The game has no enjoyable content anymore, I feel sorry fr people who think sinking many hours a day to grind or get borred in a camp is fun. And no low sec is just as empty as 0.0, there are no fights just blobbing given you can find 1 target in a day. That is not game for me.

Now why I need ISK, actually I dont, I have much more than that and I prolly wont play so that makes my request non selfish:)
