A 12 years old with guts. I believe that's much much better than a 40 years old wuss.

lol guts?  ganking is a act of a coward.  so next

You forgot "in my opinion". Of course the weak will never admit it.

no i didnt forget my opinion,  you just wont admit that its a act of a coward to gank.  no worry im sure you can see a shrink when you get older to help you with your anger issues. 

I play and mmoRPG and i roleplay the bad guy therefore i will try to blow you up .You can be stronger  or weaker,it does not matter.

Not sure you are really role-playing , seems to be pretty much in character actually.

Arrogant, Condescending, Dismissive, Elitist, you speak as if these are bad things?

"Low risk" is the keyword here. It's not "no risk", it's "low risk". Losing your beginner ship ain't a problem, in fact, as long as you are doing the actual tutorial any losses on the players part won't matter. It's insignificant ISK. So yeah, "low risk" it is, never have anyone said "no risk".

I lost 3 newbie ships in my first week. So what?

New players trying EvE don't pay for it the first 2 weeks. They should be able to figure out for themselves if the low risk areas are actually high risk. (Wich they were not for me, never been suicide ganked).

LOL thanks, but my bounty is already 3/4 Billion isk because I told some disturbed individual to go F off when he asked me to suck his pp.  What's another million at this point?  In fact I would love to be the first Carebear Miner in EVE history with the largest Bounty on my head.  It would be ultimate proof of how meaningless their bounty system is.

You are pushing your own perception of the game on everyone else.

A newbie player podded and killed LOSES VIRTUALLY NOTHING. He doesn't fucking have anything. What is he going to lose? His pride? Lol

PvE missions mean lots of things. They mean a stable source of income. You're making it sound like high-sec is no-mans-land or something, it's not, Concord is still there and attacking that newbie means loss of income. Sure, it may happen, and it does, but it's a bigger loss to the attacker than the newbie at that point. The newbie will most probably profit from missions regardless, which is why they're brought up. Especially if he does all the recommended things like insuring the ship and not putting anything expensive on it.

None of this was ever made a mystery last time I checked. People in Rookie Chat are quick to tell you that you should never fly anything you are not ready to lose, that you can die anywhere, don't use autopilot, don't trust people, etc.

OP: I doubt any CCP employee has ever said that highsec in Eve is "safe". 

So, if true, it's not a marketing ploy, it was instead your misperception.  I don't doubt your feelings of loss, but Eve is, was, and will be a pvp game.  Whoever you've been listening to about highsec being safe was the liar.

I also don't doubt that there are others who don't believe what CCP has said about the nature of their game. 

Even if you're in a station, Eve is not "safe".  I was in Jita yesterday and some player with the same misperception as yours couldn't figure out why a sell contract labeled "Megathron Navy Issue" had only a regular megathron in it.  A scam (business pvp) and they couldn't believe it. 

A piece of unsolicited advice: I hope you can adust to your loss of rl time and rl money, but if not, find a different game where that kind of loss can't happen.

Now i can admit there have been a few years since i did the new player experience last time and it might have changed since. But back then they did warn you several times that you could be killed any where and any time. Heck it was even on the home page back then.

 

Any way your OP comes off more then a little angry and confrontational, a better way would have been to make a guide or some similar post for new players, teaching rather then trying to frighten. Also posting here is pretty much "preaching to the  church" as we are the 2-5% that actually are active... Most of the people you are trying to reach never come here.

 

So while you fight the windmills with the most noble of intentions you still in the end only make an behind of your self and ruin some rather expensive farm equipment.

 

Now if it is as you say and the NPE give no hint to the fate that awaits a new player... I think that is bad and the proper thing to do is to make a suggestion post over at the EvE-forums (in the correct sub forum) as it at least will have a chance (slim but still) compared to what this post of yurs will manage to achive.

no i didnt forget my opinion,  you just wont admit that its a act of a coward to gank.  no worry im sure you can see a shrink when you get older to help you with your anger issues. 

I play and mmoRPG and i roleplay the bad guy therefore i will try to blow you up .You can be stronger  or weaker,it does not matter.

Humm, your sig says something else. I would also say that one does not have to pay for how you want to play.

Both I and the company agree that one does not have to pay for my choice of how to play. That's why you can choose to play or not to play.

So, if true, it's not a marketing ploy, it was instead your misperception.  I don't doubt your feelings of loss, but Eve is, was, and will be a pvp game.  Whoever you've been listening to about highsec being safe was the liar.

I also don't doubt that there are others who don't believe what CCP has said about the nature of their game. 

Even if you're in a station, Eve is not "safe".  I was in Jita yesterday and some player with the same misperception as yours couldn't figure out why a sell contract labeled "Megathron Navy Issue" had only a regular megathron in it.  A scam (business pvp) and they couldn't believe it. 

A piece of unsolicited advice: I hope you can adust to your loss of rl time and rl money, but if not, find a different game where that kind of loss can't happen.

SMH.  It is constantly pushed out that High sec is low risk, both on the EVE forums and by virtue of the new player experience.  And yes lies are told all the time to lure in new players.  Stop trying to defend CCP.  And stop trying to make this personal to me, I could care less about virtual items and my clone is always updated.  The ONLY thing that would anger me would be a loss of skill points and clones prevent that.  As far as a new game, I am waiting for my game to be released.  I play EVE off and on as a "second" game so its no biggie.  I come to MMORPG to post because its the ONLY unbiased place to post on a game without being crucified by forum Stans on the official game forums.  Lets agree to disagree.  And any newbie can try the FREE trial and see exactly what Im talking about with either the bounties or the High sec "low risk" BS that CCP tries to deploy.

For sh*t's and giggles I just googled two phrases:

"High-sec is safe"

10 hits.

"Do not fly what you cannot afford to lose"

76,800 hits.

 

I'm sorry OP and to those that agree with him.  I've been a high-sec "carebear" running L4s, this month marking my 7th year, and I've never (read: ZERO) been ganked/killed in high-sec outside of a wardec.  I suppose I could just be lucky.  Or maybe I don't fly tasty looking targets.  Or maybe I did my research before I started playing 7 years ago and learned early to pay attention and not do anything that may get you killed.  Hell, I've also lived in low-sec for a few years on an alt and he was never ganked unexpectedly...  

Does my experience mean that High-Sec is safe?  Of course not.  Does the OPs experience mean that High-Sec is a gank fest?  Nope.

Course, this won't change the haters minds so carry on I suppose.

GL HF Fly Safe,

k

I see all the comments, and yeah it boils down to whether I want to pay money to get ganked.  Well I don't, so that's really that.  I just want to let anyone thinking of trying the game know, High sec is a Lie, you can lose it all anywhere.  And all that "new player" experience is still BS.  People will kill you for shits & giggles in this game, new player or not.  Eve can keep its "fanbase", the game allows trolls to dominate with griefing.  And for those that say "Don't piss people off" in my instance I suppose I should have said "Yeah Ill suck your 3 inch pp for you!" in order to keep the peace...NOT ON YOUR LIFE.  Maybe that's what YOU would do, but I don't. 

 

And I'm not crying about being blown up, I am warning those that think some areas are safe.  AND YES there is a BIG misconception that certain high sec areas are safe, I'm here to say THEY ARE NOT SAFE, that's a marketing ploy put out to sucker in new players. 

 

Safe flying!  (In another game!)

 

 

High sec is not a lie it provides high security,it is exactly what it says. I can still shoot you in the middle of a police station but that would assure my arrest.

Actually a fair amount of your attitude shines through in the way you type... Also CAPS = shouting (another fact you seem to be unaware of) and why would you be shouting if you were happy and content..?

 

Any way... I agree it is a lot easier to just pay a gank-corp to take you out then do a bounty but not everyone have those kind of contacts. and thus the bounty system works fine.. you just need to make the incentive big enough. 

 

Not saying you are wrong.. just that you go about things in a very backwards kind of way.

Sigh:: I will repeat, the post was for people thinking of trying EVE.  By coming in here and talking about my "attitude" doesn't discredit the fact that what I am saying is absolutely correct.  In fact, you and several others have actually confirmed what I said.  Your using the "attitude" argument to get off topic and sorry it won't work. 

As for the "marketing" ploy I talked about, EVE has set up the "new player experience" in order to attract new players and provide them with education about the game.  They have pushed that out and made a big deal about it in order to get people acclimated.  What they FAIL to state is that new players can get ganked or killed for thrills anywhere.  So all those stupid pve missions they introduced for new players means squat if they are podded and killed repeatedly while doing them.  And all in the EVE forums and here, people always talk about the low risks in High sec, comeon, please we have seen that malarkey endlessly.  Its simply used as a lure not just by CCP but veteran players to get new people to pay for the game.  More cannon fodder.  Let's be real here.   

Now i can admit there have been a few years since i did the new player experience last time and it might have changed since. But back then they did warn you several times that you could be killed any where and any time. Heck it was even on the home page back then.

 

Any way your OP comes off more then a little angry and confrontational, a better way would have been to make a guide or some similar post for new players, teaching rather then trying to frighten. Also posting here is pretty much "preaching to the  church" as we are the 2-5% that actually are active... Most of the people you are trying to reach never come here.

 

So while you fight the windmills with the most noble of intentions you still in the end only make an behind of your self and ruin some rather expensive farm equipment.

 

Now if it is as you say and the NPE give no hint to the fate that awaits a new player... I think that is bad and the proper thing to do is to make a suggestion post over at the EvE-forums (in the correct sub forum) as it at least will have a chance (slim but still) compared to what this post of yurs will manage to achive.

Nope, your absolutely wrong, making a post on the EVE forums full of Stans is the waste of time.  New players LOOKING FOR NEW GAMEs, come HERE to MMORPG.  They check it out and then go to game forums.  So this is the perfect venue to speak the truth on the game.  Official game forums are a TOTAL WASTE OF TIME if your trying to find out the truth of a game.  If the Stans don't kill you, the forum moderators will, because they don't want the truth to be known. 

 

Sorry sir, your backwards here, truly so.

A 12 years old with guts. I believe that's much much better than a 40 years old wuss.

I like eve for the fact there really are no safe zones but you can minimize your losses.

1. Never fly an uninsured ship

2. Never do anything to get under the skin of others 

3. Never scam players on your main character

If you follow the basic rules and never do anything to provoke others then its very rare you will get ganked in hi sec. 

In 6 years of play I have only been ganked once in hi sec but I was INSURED so no loss to me really. 

If you get pod killed then you will lose your implants
