Finding the gas is 90% of the battle in known space. Focus on locating it with an exploration ship, actually harvest it in a cheap Venture. Cloak/dock every time someone enters system.

Wormhole gas is more difficult because you have to clear the site after the enemies spawn to keep huffing, but you're safe for the first 15 minutes after warping to it until they spawn.
>>
>>810424
yeah, a heap of new players recently and a lot of ppl returning to check out FW.

>>810430
take a probe launcher and mobile depot with you when you go into wormholes.
you have like 15-ish min from when you first warp in before the rats spawn.
your first load of gas will pay for 3 more ventures easily.

I have no idea for the Sins mod, but large fleets at their most basic are about amassing a standard ship (Battleships, Heavy Assault Cruisers, etc) and putting as much DPS as possible on a target while going down the line hoping that you pop enemy ships faster than they pop yours.

There can be more nuance in fleets, with sensor damps being used to fuck with long range ships, ECM jamming close range craft's targeting, and weapon disruption ruining the application of opposing ships, but a lot of that goes unused in favor of putting more EHP and DPS on the field.

Playing better games, quite frankly. There's nothing interesting left in this game as I've thoroughly burned out wrt WHs, nullsec is a gay leddit blueneutral circle jerk and rest of the game is arena faggotry.

>>813229
Name a game that takes more commitment and effort to get anything (aside from logging in to F1 or run some theme park PVE) done? Especially as there's no worthwhile goals left (see above) and player counts being so low (much less random skirmish content), EVE is just not worth the effort.

>>812940
Eve used to be by far the best open world PVP sandbox out there, once in a century stroke of genius by retarded Iceland niggers. General dumbing down, outright neglect and some poor design choices have left it in such a bad place that there indeed is nothing to get excited over anymore.
>>

>>
>>813480
Technically the game was always bad for PvP, it's just the general ignorance of most of the population led to actually interesting fights because everything wasn't min maxed to the point where people knew exactly how to avoid any risk. Now everyone knows how each fight is going to play out ahead of time and if they can handle something or not, so everything hangs on intel and scouting.

The general amount of ISK and resources floating around in the game also means there's zero consequences for many players, the only ones actually facing meaningful setbacks are new ones.

Longer version: ccp can't and they don't care much to try anymore. Every time they openly intervene they either make fools of themselves or show how much they don't understand what's going on in the game.
Over the years these faggots spawned free stuff for their "friends", they tried to fight gatecamping once and failed so hard people still laugh at them. As a result you have defenses at gates abs that cured gatecamps 100% for real.
They are out of options. Any big changes on the powerbalance will scare off fat fucks who still pay for this game to pretend they own pixels in a videogame and have "power".
Final bot solution would drive if the chinks.
Don't drown into sunk cost fallacy, win eve while you still can and just don't "play" this shit.
>>
>>815146
That's the real problem with it all, CCP can't actively deal with the nullsec problem because there's enough revenue coming from out there that not catering to them will result in an exodus and fuck with their profits. Meanwhile, leaving it as it is will continue to make the game unattractive to new players because none of them want to jump into a game that's already dominated by a few old groups of players, so EVE can't grow its userbase. Any fresh player takes one look at the exceptionally long skill training queues, the tiny profit margins on anything they can reasonably do alone or with friends, and the sheer amount of shit someone needs to know about the mechanics of the game and says fuck it, I'll go waste my time elsewhere.

CCP tries to run some bandaid fixes like adding abyssal deadspace in and while it does help some, they don't care to really spend the resources and make content aimed at attracting and sustaining new players when they could just add an occasional new ship or retool some old content slightly for marketing purposes. Instead, they realized the nullblob is going to stick around and hold their space no matter what, so they jacked up the sub fee to squeeze them harder like the whales they are. PLEX has reached a stupid high price of 2.5b for a month of time and shows no sign of stabilizing because all the carebears who buy it to sell for ISK aren't playing anymore coupled with an absurd amount of liquid ISK being injected into the system.

At this point, by the time "fixes" do come down, EVE's going to essentially be two separate games, the classic nullblob blue donut and a handful of disconnected instanced content aimed at giving people who don't participate something to do.

how many missions does it take until I get lvl 4 security mission access???
>>
>>815441
From 0 standings, train Connections to III to get access to L2 missions.

It takes roughly 16 L2 missions to get a storyline mission, which will usually boost your corporate standings high enough to take L3s. You need about 32 or so L3 missions to get 5.0 standing with a corp so you can run L4 missions. If you have decent skills for flying cruisers, all of these can be done in a few hours.

If you have cash and want faction standing quickly which lets you take missions from an entire empire, there's the COSMOS missions you can search up on the Uni wiki. You need some items you can buy from the market and a ship capable of doing L3 missions, but if you have those you can push your faction standings up enough to take L4s right away.

>>815012
same here, i started playing again about 2 weeks ago after 3 years of break on a character which i played on for about a month back then (i was a neet back then)
EVE was one of my "one day..." games which i wanted to spend money on, so i bought 1 month of omega and some plex this time around. Now it has been revealed to me in its fullest just how shit the game is to new players.
My guess is when the old players start leaving, CCP will either kill the game and cash out, or will finally make changes that keeps new players, but that's still many years into the future.

I don't think I'll make use of my remaining omega time either, it's just pointless. It's fun to a degree, but when I play i get a constant "what things could've been" feeling, which is unpleasant. Just going to uninstall now, and close this tab since there's no point in staying here if I don't play the game anymore. Playing MMOs is one of the big mistakes you can do these days IMO, unless you're FFXIV tranny that's completely detached from reality and lives in perfect blissful ignorance.

Well, all the best, faggots. See ya.
I did consider contracting all my stuff to one of you fags, it's about 3bil worth of ISK, but nah. Maybe the game will get good someday.

Yes.

EVE is primarily a game about acquiring Interstellar Kredits, or ISK. The more ISK you have, the more content you can access.
ISK is normally earned by participating in the in-game economy or doing PVE, like missions (Incursions at higher levels).
ISK can also be acquired by purchasing PLEX through the game store. 100 PLEX costs roughly $5, and can be converted into 551m~ ISK.

ISK is also good because it can be converted into skill points, or if you use the forums, can be used to purchase veteran characters outright. What would ordinarily take someone 5-12 months to competently train a combat pilot can be bought for a few billion ISK in a day or so, assuming you have the coin.

On the higher end of the whale spectrum, PLEX is used to fund multiple alt accounts for the purpose of bot mining. The Chinese make tremendous amounts of ISK this way.

Some whales (think the 0.001%) use PLEX to fund entire wars and influence the political landscape of New Eden.

It's kind of ridiculous to suggest that EVE isn't P2W, because everything is tied to ISK, and ISK can be bought outright.

>>815915
If you want to join an alliance for null activity, it's best to find a corp with people you like that are a part of one. Don't join Brave, Goons, Frat, or PL, join a corp in one of those groups that's already established. Joining for the alliance drops you into being a lineman and makes it exceptionally hard to get noticed and make the social contacts you need if you're wanting to move up the food chain.

EVE Uni can teach you things, but they purposely distance themselves from owning sov null because it creates entanglements they don't want. They do maintain a presence in Syndicate NPC null, however. E-Uni does have recruiters for sov null in its structure, they're just not openly affiliated with it.

Your other option is to try and find a wormhole corp, but because wormholes are usually small, their players are expected to be very active and skilled (Expected, doesn't always match reality). Wormhole groups usually have fewer people and focus on owning on their single system.

Whatever you do, pick a group that's established and has a decent amount of active players and stable leadership. Joining a five man corp in high sec isn't going to provide that, at best you make some friends and have a small gang, at worse you wind up being a +1 that just tags along everywhere until the group inevitably disbands. You want a corp that's going to survive when a few members or leadership go on hiatus.
>>
>>815978
>Don't join Brave, Goons, Frat, or PL, join a corp in one of those groups that's already established.

Not sure what you mean. Do you mean don't join the "main" corp in the alliance, and instead join a smaller, active, more specialized corp in the alliance instead?

>Joining for the alliance drops you into being a lineman and makes it exceptionally hard to get noticed and make the social contacts you need if you're wanting to move up the food chain.

>one that suits your personality, playstyle etc.

there are heaps of groups ranging from sweaty nerds to casual drunkdads laughing about shit on comms, with everything in between.
hardest part is finding the group of ppl you click with.
i reckon if you're completely stuck, try joining FW and get involved with the faction's fleets, discord, pings etc to meet people. at the least it'll get you a step in the right direction.

Assfrig buffs kinda removed their natural prey. ADC is silly OP on a frig.
>>
>>815983
Yeah, that's what I mean. If you just apply to the general recruitment for the alliance, you're going to be dropped into a corp that's just bulk recruits that hold territory and get herded around by the leadership to fight in wars. You're not going to ever really get access to anywhere good to farm and the best you'll get is the alliance-wide fleet things like mining and site farming. The people in charge will have no desire to teach you anything because they want someone that presses F1 on command and doesn't ask questions. Ambitious people aren't worth the risk.

You join a smaller corp that's just part of the whole though and the people running it are more likely to cultivate you as a member to increase their standing within the alliance. As corps grow, alliance leadership starts having to deal with them differently because they contribute a larger share of the alliance's might, and being a valuable corp means having valuable players in it.

Not an exact description of it, but if the core corporations of the goons, the russians, or PL up and left, even if they only made up 5% of the member base, the alliance would fall apart because leadership is important to keeping the thing running. Alliances are made up mostly of brainless carebears that rarely have an independent thought and never learn more than what their masters teach them because that's exactly what an alliance needs to keep running, and then there's a few smaller groups of players that handle the specifics that require some thought on how to do it.

Is Xi basically every Hulk user?

>>816141
What separates the cannon fodder corps from those smaller corps that you're talking about? Is it skill? Are they good at something in particular?
>>
>>816145
A bunch of hard to define things. Skill plays a factor in it, but it's also how long they've been around, how much practical benefit they've contributed, and how ingrained their leaders are with the alliance leaders. Personal relationships and stuff.

The whole thing is basically a feudal system. As alliance leadership, you want strong allied corps (vassals) because they can get shit done and punch far beyond their weight compared to most players. They're the ones that set up gate camps on their own accord, handle intel in their space, find new opportunities to farm, that sort of thing. Linemen pretty much just float around your systems and occasionally shoot rats, content they farmed up 300m ISK yesterday since that's more than they ever saw in highsec. You have to whip them to get them to serve any strategic goal.

The problem is smart players are usually ambitious and have an eye on your crown. If they start to realize they're pulling most of the weight in the alliance, they'll either force you out or splinter off their own faction. You keep them at arm's length, but then you reduce how effective they can be by keeping them in the dark and don't win yourself any favors with them.

>>816171
That makes sense. So would you say it's mostly about taking initiative and trying to get into more hands-on, practical stuff?

>>815343
I wish there was some kind of reset every few months. Stagnation keeps the game afloat for now but at the same time it keeps the game from growing.
In not even going to play this knowing that some nolifer with 20 years of playing has so much resources he can lolwaste capitals by the dozens without much thinking then post bullshit like "don't fly what you can't afford to lose".
There is no point in trying to compete with that. In order to properly learn and have fun you have to be on the same level as other players at least in posessions.
Players keep their ingame knowledge and that's fine, but there's nothing for new players to aspire to except cheap ganking of highsec miners and smoothbrain mission running.

Undeserved elitism and circle jerking. The "special" corps are the same retarded F1 carebears like the rest of them, only with super toons and more discord tranny dick sucked.
>>
>>816175
Pretty much. You should try and be involved in group stuff and make yourself a valuable contributor with the intention that people would rather bend the rules to keep you around than have to deal being a man down. This is pretty hard to do the bigger your corp or alliance gets, until you make it to management level.

Unironically read "The Prince" and apply that to dealing with people in EVE.

In-game corp finder is OK for finding corps with your specific play-time.
Reddit and Facebook are good too, usually recruitment posts/threads on there.
Use zkill and other tools to scope out how active they are.
Can also be worth flying out to where they are in a covops and scoping them out.
Hardest part is A) not accidentally getting a dead retirement home corp, and B) finding a corp culture that suits you.

On the 2nd point, see if they have any casual roams you can join in on first to see if they fit you, or join for a week... fly with em for a bit and see if they're your taste.
Sweaty nerds can be fun, so can casual drunkdads. But you dont want to be an 18yo memelord zoomer in a corp full of 60 year olds, nor do you want to be a casual player in a group full of sweaty tryhards.
If you dont like the corp after joining, just leave. dont feel like you have to hang around a group you dont like.

corp size is another factor too. try to avoid groups that literally only have 3-5 online. groups that small, all it takes is 1 guy to "Win Eve" for the others to all stop logging in as well.
Generally I'd say a corp that has actual goals and group projects or group PVE they work on together, as it actually forces people to log on and do shit together, as opposed to like.. a 1000man nullcorp where no-one ever hangs out and everyone solo ishtar rats in silence forever.

memes aside, pic related is right.
>>
>>816310
I would say a new player shouldn't join a corp right away at all. Playing EVE alone is for masochists, but you also don't want to dive off the deep end from the get go before you really know what you like about the game.

Look for public organizations, things like Bombers' Bar, Warp2Me, any NPSI roam etc and check what time they're doing stuff and how to participate. This lets you find out if you even like the activity before you join a corp that specializes in it and even if you don't, the people in it often dip their feet in a lot of content so you can meet people you just like playing with and find something you do like doing with them.

It gets far easier to find good people when you're already doing group content in EVE because unlike every other MMO where dungeon finders begin and end without a word said, the nature of EVE is such that fleet members are going to chat with one another frequently and their personalities will bleed through so you get to know a bit about them.
>>
>>816310
>>816440
These guys basically said everything you need but don't get too bogged down in trying to find the perfect corp immediately. Once you have a rough idea of what you want to do it's fine to join an average group just to get involved in that activity. Once you're actually in wormholes or FW or whatever it's much easier to see who the good groups are through encounters with them and comments from your current corp members compared to scrolling through endless recruitment posts that sound the same. Those better groups would be happier to have a newbie with some experience applying than a complete beginner too.

Gas huffing is good ISK/hour while you're doing it, but it's always a question if you're going to find a cloud or not. Some nights I've gotten two or three spawns to myself, others I stumble on one site that didn't despawn when it ran out of clouds.

I wish I knew if clouds instantly respawned somewhere in the region when you emptied one out, if that was the case it'd be very efficient just to get a small group of people each scanning a constellation as old sites dry up.

I'd say at least 2/3s of subs are bots. While that's a shocking statistic on it's own, think of all the PLEX whales buy to fund multiboxers. You know full well people with 10 alts aren't solely paying individual subs for each.

Multiboxing and botting would drop like a rock if PLEX was removed, but it would probably kill CCP at this point.

Then nothing stops you from finding a group that's vaguely related to what you like doing and asking how you can help out. You might start as a sentry that just reports on movements through space for the fleet to intercept, you might fly a cheap frigate and tackle ships to stop them from getting away while your buddies blast them, or you might have any number of small but important jobs for the fleet as a whole. As you play and learn things, you'll get skill points and cash and can buy bigger ships and start blowing shit up directly.

Skillpoints and ISK are important, but actually knowing how the game works and how other players behave is the most important thing of all. You won't learn that until you do it yourself.
>>
>>820950
Jump into Faction Warfare after a few weeks of training basic skills and learning how the game works. There's constant frigate action over there, it's the perfect pvp learning ground. Plenty of new players trying it out while it's still relatively new and if you reach out to people for advice there's a good chance they'll help you out.

This is awful advice. FW is full of tryhards flying pirate frigates with heads full of snakes. New players don't have a chance in it. It's not worth doing except with a gang.

It's good for lore and because it gives you a huge faction standing to an empire of your choice. The entire chain pays out a grand total of 15m otherwise though and basically sends you across all of high sec, so it's kind of slow if you don't want either of them.

The later epic arcs pay a lot better and have interesting parts in them too, the Amarr one drops an implant that sells for either 320m or 500m depending on who you work for.

Trying to decide on a beginner corp. I've been recommended the big names like KF, Eve Uni, Pandemic Horde, etc. Are there any to stay away from? Any that are particularly good for beginners? Eve University seems pretty good, just pretty hugbox.
>>
>>821836
I personally didn't like E-Uni, but that was more because I don't like too organized of corps regardless. E-Uni has a lot of structure to it, rules to follow, etc, and when you're logged in you're expected to behave. There wasn't a lot that bothered me about it, but when I wanted to start up my own fleet and run it a specific way, I had to get it ok'd by HQ. I couldn't just grab a handful of people, announce what was going on in chat/forums, use the calendar, etc. on my own, and sometimes I'd get told not to run a fleet because it intersected with a similar one and the leadership didn't want to split participation even though mine was on a different day/time.

This was almost ten years ago, so I don't know if they've relaxed or not. They don't have the membership they used to from what I can tell, so I have a feeling a lot of the strict rules have fallen by the wayside in order to attract more players. It seems like there's been some change in the middle leadership as well, so things are likely different than they were.
>>
>>821845
Appreciate it. Any experience with the others? I have decision paralysis since there's so many corps vying for newbies.
>>
>>821850
I made my own corp after my E-Uni adventure and sat in a wormhole for a couple of years, so I don't really have a lot of direct experience from the newbro angle. However, I do things with LinkNet from the corporate angle and I'm so far happy with how they handle stuff. They work in a decentralized sort of way so their entry corps are more like big chat channels and they have a lot of smaller, specialized corps that advertise their fleets to the group. It's easy to bounce from PvP roams to mining fleets to small wormhole groups to whatever and doesn't need a commitment to do most stuff.

Like, to compare it to E-Uni, when I wanted to colonize a wormhole, I was told I'm not allowed to launch structures for the corporation (understandable) and even so, they would rather I use their wormhole campus and fly under the leadership's fleets. With LinkNet, I just had to convince someone my idea had merit and they'd start advertising it as a fleet on their calendar. Unlike E-Uni, I don't get any financial backing from the alliance as a whole, but I'm not barred from trying something out with my own resources just because it might not go so well. And I still found a couple of volunteers who help out anyway, which is more valuable than an ISK donation.

There's a bunch of small, independent corps that work with them, so it's easier to get something you like than following the uni's class structure and major activities. Only reason I'd say to use uni over them would be if you absolutely want to be in a very large corp and don't mind following doctrines and orders, they probably get stuff done more efficiently but it kind of chaffed on me enough that I decided to go my own way.

>or finally overhaul the mission system
CCP announced at fanfest that overhauling missions completely is on their list of shit they're doing in the next 1-2 years
most missions/agents are worthless but there's a few people that know how to abuse the fuck out of them for broken amounts of isk and LP
>>
>>822049
I've watched a lot of those videos and most of their "income" comes from empire LP conversions which don't really track with what they estimate. Like, I've done some L5s just to see what the income was and while I was putting out something like 110-140k per mission, you're spending them mostly in the navy LP stores so your most consistent money maker is faction ammo which has an upper limit to how much you can dump on the market at once. Beyond that, there's maybe a few implants that sell in very small quantities that have a good ratio. So you might get 500m an hour... but it will likely take you several weeks of seeding the market to get it out of LP, unless you have a direct buyer for your LP in bulk.

It's not exactly like abyssals where more than half of the ISK is in red loot you can sell directly to CONCORD or incursions where you're getting direct bounty payouts and rare LP, blitzing L5s isn't much better bounty ISK than L4s and you have to do it in low sec so you can't always guarantee your system will be clear at any time.

I think the best way to safely abuse missions though is just to get a few alts with standing to take L4s, find a section of space with a lot of agents, then collect easy ones with a lot of battleships in them like Vengeance or Gone Berserk then just murder your way through 30 or so in a couple of hours in a marauder. Don't finish them off, just kill the rats, leave one alive so the mission doesn't complete, come back the next day and do it again. Get a salvage alt to drop an MTU in each pocket as you go so he can come back in 15 minutes and pick up another 15 mil per site. I was pulling like 150-250m an hour doing this split evenly between bounty payouts and loot/salvage, only drawback is once you run out of missions for the day you have to wait for downtime to do it again.

>>
>>822406
Not really, no, datacore farming isn't even worth the setup anymore.
>>
>>822457
I can agree, even if you've got most stuff in place, you still need to train at least a week to get a decent amount of agents and spend 30m on a skillbook. If you made 5 cores a day at 100k each, it would take you two months to recoup your initial costs. It's only worth doing if you're going to be inventing a ton of blueprints.
>>
>>822465
Not even worth the time to fly around and pick them all up, the datacore economy is flooded by faction warfare LP, its just not worth the time.

If you need datacores in bulk get an afk plexing alt in faction warfare or just learn how to do buy orders

>>822406
selling stuff in stations that have no competition
>>
>>822467
I still run mine and pick them up every few months. It's not PI tier passive income, but it's an extra 20 million or so each month with next to no interaction. No reason not to since the whole circuit takes about 8 jumps in a shuttle to collect and even though buy orders get them for cheap, I wind up having to travel a few different regions to collect them.

It's like anything in EVE though, you get more out of them if you run them up the production chain. I can take the 180 data cores I get each month and turn them into T2 blueprints and sell those for a bigger markup, usually doubling my profit. Or just make things outright with them because there's a lot of T2 modules that are twice as expensive as buying the materials to make them and making them yourself.

I think I'm just going to get all small+medium weapons to V, and frig+destroyer+cruiser skills to V and consider this character done, just extract the sp to subsidize the omega

I was so disappointed when I came back after a long break, noticed I had around 300k research points and then did the maths to learn it wasn't even worth cashing in.

>>822924
I'm probably reaching that point too. 150mill in subcaps and I've pretty much run out of skills I want to train. Don't know if I should extract, train up a second character on the account for trading/industry (I don't know if I'm autistic enough for that though) or get cap skills just in case I need them in the future.

Are frigate abyssals like a full tier above in rewards?
Took a riftermeme into T0 and it's dropping condensate, mutaplasmids and more data
>>
>>823414
Repitition. Take up FC over and over again because no one else wants to do it and start to learn every situation you get into and how to handle it. It's mostly a case of reiterating the basic information everyone knows but will probably forget every once in a while, calling targets, and relaying the most important strategic information to the rest of the fleet (Target on d-scan, +1 in system, etc). If you can do that, your scout(s) will handle the rest and make you look far more competent than you actually are.
>>
>>823533
It's not exactly an even progression, but that's basically the case. You get twice the rewards for your tier in a destroyer and three times as much in a frigate. One thing about doing frigates and destroyers over cruisers is you get far more condensate/isogen/etc than a cruiser but the red loot is only slightly increased. So if you're never selling the other stuff on the market, doing cruiser stuff pays about the same since it's mostly directly vendoring red loot.

I'm trying to decide on a wormhole for casual use by my corp. We have about 12 active people mostly in the EU time zone. Basically all of them are new.

I've been scouting wormholes for the last week or so and found a few empty ones:
>C1 HS static, decent planets for PI but otherwise only useful for teaching people about wormholes
>C2 with a C2/LS static, gives quick access to all the crappy wormhole sites we want, LS static is kind of a pain when wanting to visit high sec
>C4 with a C1 static, we're always stuck two jumps deep in the wormhole system but most C1s connect to HS so it's workable

I don't know if I should go with one of these or keep looking, the C4 is temping but kind of crap, but I think holding out for a C4 with a C3 or C4 static would invite trouble and be too difficult for a casual group to navigate since they're going to want to come and go through known space without alts. The C1 is basically entirely a teaching tool while the C2 could be nice if they actually stick with living in a wormhole.
>>
>>823806
The C4 with a C1 static is kind of shit

C4 is the most common farming/content static for larger wormhole groups, and a C1 static holes are always dogshit in mass/size limits so you'll run into logistical issues of trying to move shit into your system

IMO just don't bother with C1-3s to live in unless you're going to do some heavy industry in them, at that point you're better off just being a daytripper, either find a hole with a C4 static that you can roll regularly for farm/PVP, or just don't bother.
>>
>>823806
If you intend to have the corp move into the hole I'd probably pass on the C1, as you said its only real use is PI and teaching them the basics of how a wormhole works, and they'll pick the second part up quickly. If it's just for PI and casual trips to get them used to wormhole space it's very low investment, least likely to be messed with and the safest bet.
The C4's not ideal either. C1 statics are rubbish, they suck for mass and the combat sites aren't worth running even for new players, and like the other anon said C4 space is where most of the bigger corps live these days.
The C2's not the best either, the LS static could get your newbies killed while travelling and the C2 could roll you into a null/C5 pvp corp, but it will give you more variety, potential HS access and C3 sites to farm. Of the three options it's by far the best but you might want to look around a bit more before you decide to settle there. If you can find a C2 with a HS/C3 static that would be your best bet but I have no idea how likely you are to find an empty one.

We're mostly doing industry right now. I agree the C1 is probably going to be the safest place to put something down, but it's ultimately much more useful than that and PI. Having a HS static would be good if the rest of the corp doesn't want to deal with logistics though, I know when I first started EVE around 12 years ago I eventually got burnt out on wormhole life because of it.

The C2 and C4-C1 static might both be bad for finding combat sites, but they do let us roll the holes to get new j-space systems to mine in and core deposits for gas and ore can spawn in low class systems (Rarely though). The C2 can be rolled in a similar way to get to an empty LS system for k-space mining as well since it's kind of hard to find nocxium in wormholes.

My main concern is people getting burnt out too quickly if I setup somewhere hard to navigate through or combat sites getting overfarmed to the point where everyone's starved for content. The deeper we go the harder it is to live casually, but the shallow wormholes don't really offer a lot.
>>
>>823827
we had a c2 with a c3 and a highsec static. Absolute best of both worlds. just tell your corp that it trickles in tons of content and newbros to recruit and you become next to impossible to evict. The only thing they have to deal with is elite pvpers sitting on the highsec who will jump back through the second they take any damage.

Joining my first corp. I've been accepted to E-Uni, Dreddit, and Brave Newbies. I'm leaning towards one of the latter two, but not sure if anyone has experience with any of the three.

I see some things never change.

>spend two straight hours ""exploring"" in wormholes and low-sec for the career goals
>just ~11 mil in loot

Why would anyone choose to do this over abyssals
>>
>>824435
>Make 1b an hour dualboxing Ishtars in abyssals
Why would anything do anything else in the game except abyssals?
>>
>>824435
Because its like doing wagie work, rather explore holes, land in random parts of null then back to another wormhole, who knows, annoy the local blue hugbox retards.

>excel addon beta requires discord
fuck off

who the fuck even pays for and uses excel?
who the fuck even uses spreadsheets for modern Eve? the game is solved at this point so there's no need for spreadsheets unless you're getting into like... T3 production.
