Missions are boring.

Mining is just as boring but better ISK.

Lowsec and 0.0 has uber mining and uber rats with killer bounties and loot.

As a noob who reads the forums, I see alot of posts about lowsec, getting ppl out to 0.0 and carebears in empire.

I like to rat in lowsec and PvP. I play every night.

I lose my brutix or thorax everynight to the point where I HAVE to run missions or mine to get another one.

People in tech II ships blow me to bits for no reason besides they can, and not just in passing, hunting me down through a lowsec system with numerous gates till they find me and gank the crap out of me.

I check the map for ships, pods and people docked. I keep an eye on local chat.

There is no hope for anyone in anything less than an interceptor to be able to do anything in lowsec or 0.0.

So please, keep the bullsh!t about getting people to lowsec in your bum where it belongs. thx.

I like waffles!

To address your problem... well it happens. Move to a different area. One less populated. There are PLENTY of sparsely populated 0.0 systems. They may not have much to offer, but then again there's no competition either.

is it a river? or an ocean? join a good corp, in 0.0 ir something, i got noob friends that been playing eve for as little as 1-2 months, and they re all ready in 0.0
you can't sit around and wait for t to happen, eve is like rl in a way, it does get emotional.
people do get b**chy
the powerfull will kill you to add kb to their billboard, just so they can look cool to others, (hey look at me iam ub3r). so i fyou can't handle the emotion, i suggest you download kitty iland adventures. no pvp involved what so ever.

I like waffles, yum!

But yeah just go to a less populated place, there are pleanty of em around, if you want just go find a corner in space where no one goes, make a nice SS with deapspace probes haul and drop off yer stuff there. So you can mine/rat do whatever, and chances are no one will ever come in the system let alone bother you. ^^

Your problem is that you're trying to earn isk in pipes. Either go to a lowsec system that is one jump out of the pipe and has no other gates but the one you came in from, or go into a 0.0 system that is a couple of jumps away from a transit pipe.

It might help to scout these systems out first using a frigate and unimplanted clone you don't mind losing, just in case they are populated by griefers.

Once you get your ratting ship into the system the first thing you should do is make yourself a couple of safespot bookmarks. When an unknown entity enters local chat, warp to the safespot and check his info. Security status can lie, as lowsec griefers often have access to stellar battleship rats in 0.0 that provide significant boosts to sec status, but a short conversation should reveal enough about your adversary to determine whether it is prudent to continue ratting or to safespot until he leaves.

yeah as others above me ^

stated, you have to go find a quiet spot. sometimes this takes a lot of travelling and scouting but well worth it. try aridia and solitude for lowsec, and providence for noob friendly 0.0.

If you're ratting, start moving upwards (or downwards) as soon as you engage. This way if someone warps in you'll have time to warp out before he scrambles you.

we ♥ our waffles

the whine was weak though, work on it. Skew some facts to support your side and have it more of a fight than a WHAAAA! thread
