Player corporation wars wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the crappy game mechanics which allows for griefers to hang out in starbases, come out - blow up ships then go back into the starbase - creating the lamest form of warfare known to man.

Such a simple fix too - if you are at war and you attack another ship or are attacked - you can't dock for at least five minutes.

by starbase you mean station and not POS right?

currently if you attack another player you are "aggroed" and cannot dock at a station or jump through a stargate for a minute. there is talk about upping this to prevent "docking games"

Yeah, I meant station.

one minute is definitely too short - and docking games can go on for hours.

It was the most boring pvp mechanics I've ever seen in any game.

Not to grief, but somehow I think this will make a lot more 1 or 2 man corporations being developed. Why? To escape taxes obviously. Their are going to be those isolationist players, which is completely fine, and I think an easy way for them to avoid getting taxed is a small tax free corp.

In other words, this solves nothing. Its the right path, yes, but they probably could have chosen a different means.

Why do you say it solves nothing? I think the point of all this is to "encourage" people to leave the safety NPC corps. Even 1 or 2 man player corps can be wardecced...

More or less.

It will make isolated griefers life more difficult, but if it forces them to band in big griefing corps and make the problem worse.

EVE's community puts me off the game you always get the worst communities in these type of PVP games. So many people grief and insults people in game I mean the most things you hear is carebear and go back to WoW and seeing that becomes boring. Then you have all the whiners on the forums insulting eachother and it's the whole community I mean you even hear shit like that on the Alliance Tournament. Worst thing is people just can't wait to screw eachother over and I just don't have fun in a game where I have to constantly watch my back. It's like the worst is full of morons already why do I need a game to be even worse than real life. Just like loads of people trying to make eachother look like idiots in game and it's like grow up. All you ever see is people arguing over something they know nothing about like all of a sudden everyones an expert when they just tell you what they heard instead of fact.

I miss the old SWG community back in 2003. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and everyone on the server knew eachother like a nice tight community. Then the Bounty Hunter system gets put in and oh look at all the Morons suddenly appear.

Go home. If you can't take insults, you don't belong in EVE.

While you raise some valid points about community differences, you're -annoyed?- at EVE in particular, and that point there will not get you any help from people here.

as the first two replies have shown, EVE players just don't care.

Sam,

I'd say that being able to be a jerk is part of the draw for eve. You don't have to use that option, but the ability to do so if you choose is nice.

@Venekor: You hit on a really good point about sandbox games where the community molds the majority of the content: if you don't like said community then the game itself becomes a no-no, irrespective of all other facets of the game. We need some more sandbox games to come out so we can see how the various communities develop and compare to one another, would be fairly interesting I think.

The good thing about eve is that it is 1 shard only , so all the nice people play on the same server. Go look for them, they are there. And when you find them you will value them more than in other games.

Eve is a place where the best villains are other players, I like that someone are doing the dirty job of "roleplaying scum" so it is easier to justify shooting at them :-D

or you can play another game where the gameplay is designed in way that do not creates tension between players. I like to play those kind of games too.

What?
I take it you have never played EvE. I play wow and EvE both, EvE is by far filled with more mature adult players than WoW. I can sit in EvE and carry on an intelligent conversation with a large group of players with out any of the typical WoW bull**** prepubescent schoolyard horsecrap.

There's an easy fix for this. Join a good player corp, get on vent or teamspeak (if they have it. They should IMO) and stop flying solo. I pretty much ignore anyone that's not in my corp (unless they've wardec'd us of course), so these people don't bother me. If they agress you then you have your fellow corpies to pummel the hell out of them.

Bottom line: Success in Eve is not instantaneous like many other MMOs. You have to work hard, be willing to loose ships and play smart to get anywhere in the game. And, no, the reality of Eve is not nice, but I do so love griefer tears. They fill me with so much satisfaction that I work hard to completely destroy those morons.

Also, as far as station games goes (for everyone else). Play smart. Bait them, blob them or be creative with possible solutions. Sooner or later they inevitably make a mistake that costs them that pretty faction ship. No one is invincible in Eve. Remember that.
