F*** hate it, but I've come to accept it as part of the steady, irreversible decline in the quality of Eve. The risk to attack sov is way too small. Sov trolling is a thing, but right now we are able to handle them, even if most of us really don't want to. When Fleetwarp to Results is removed we won't be able to anymore but I don't expect this to not be removed. Bad proposed changes are inevitable these daysFCs crying? Check! People have little fun? Check! Attendance decreasing? Check. Plans of moving to NPC null? Check. My prediction: VFK by December! My smug: I've told you!
We did a fleet last night to take back a system of ours in Pure Blind. What would have been a 20min op using supercaps last night was an hour-and-a-half ordeal of sitting there mostly AFK while a paltry hostile force smugged about some dumb*** cynabal kill they got 3 jumps over. They tried to kill my drake and failed miserably.
DBRB and I did a sov thing in 3V8 last night. I brought a real fleet of 50 vs two shitty fleets of 30 5mil ISK destroyers, was outnumbered, still had very little fun because we kinda just sat there chasing down one hostile fleet while the other one blueballed anyway. I soloed part of a Cormorant fleet with a single Abaddon. It felt like a massive waste of time for most of my fleet and I'd rather have not done it, but only did because dealing with one stupid node is way easier than ten. My skirmish command group is becoming less and less active because chasing no-fight Svipul gangs or uncatchable Interceptors is not fun, and that's all we ever run into.
Interceptors should lose their warp immunity, they're fucking retarded and have been ever since they got warp immunity. I don't have any hope this will happen though.
Jump fatigue/SpaceAIDS on subcaps/jump bridges is shitty beyond shit. I can't relate in words how disappointing it is to have a great network that I can barely use to defend my space. I've been forced to keep fleets out longer than I'd like to just to avoid getting double-doses of spaceaids. I fully expect that replacing the current stations with destructible citadels will result in us mass-moving all of our shit to NPC stations. There is no way we would ever leave trillions of ISK in a place where total loss is even remotely possible. NPC nullsec still has too many advantages. But, hey, one single hackerceptor can threaten a hundred titans' worth of stuff.
PS: please check out the thread of Stunt Flores. The guy is probably the best solo PvP-er in EVE, with a killboard that make miner gankers shy. He is also recruiting pilots of similar skill for massacring the minions of Evil. I didn't even wait for the monthly data and supported him with 5B mid-month.
