So basically if you play Eve is it like reading excel for dummies? Would never play it but theirs gotta be better ways to learn pivot tables.

Honestly, there are no spreadsheets in EVE. There are spreadsheets OUT of EVE.

The worst thing about fighting in tidi, is that it always makes me feel like something is wrong with my brain for hours afterwards. Like somehow my whole brain goes into TiDi.

Basically I loving hate getting into Tidi fights, which sucks because my favorite ship to actually fly game mechanics wise is a carrier, and fights where caps get used are much more likely to be tidi fights.

While I had lots of fun in those battles, I find the logi meta pretty annoying atm. All manner of ships get alpha'd right off the field and as a logi i've never felt more useless. We can only realistically save people once half the fleets are dead.

I always find flying logi extremely annoying in most fights. You either can't save people or the logi wing gets primaried and destroyed righting the first few minutes of a fight.

Eve on one screen, some frame-perfect fighting game on the other, try to reach some equilibrium point?

an update! I thought this was worth posting

quote:

quote:

PEOPLE OF BRAVE! THE IMPERIUM HAS A REAL OFFER FOR YOU!

Do you have a titan or supercap trapped in M2-XFE?

We are here to help!

We of the Imperium do not want your gaming experience to be impacted by your leaderships bad decisions.
We want you to enjoy your game time and not have it wasted by having to keep your characters logged out for over 2 months after your leadership already extracted their own ships.

How can we of the Imperium help you wonder?
Simple.

We offer you the silver ticket.

We will pay you a non-insulting price for your ship or ships that are trapped.
You will be given temp blue status and allowed to log in with your ship. After a quick confirmation you will then exit your ship and be on your way back to enjoying the game you have put so much time into.
If for some reason something goes wrong you will STILL be paid. When we make a diplomatic promise we keep it. Everyone knows this friend and foe alike.

One of your brothers in Brave already took the silver ticket and is quite happy with the choice they made.

That can be you too!

Enjoy the time you put into the game. Do not let poor leadership choices control how you play the game.
Contact an official diplomat and get back control of your characters.

Oh, ok. Kinda thought that was some unrelated reddit slapfight highlighting dissent in the ranks.

I'm surprised this is allowed, as the only real way to win an EVE war is player attrition.

So basically as I understand it, you are paying them to leave the Titan, letting them log in and leave it? What happens if they try to jump out with it?

they are trapped in a warp bubble and camped 24/7, they can't escape. if they log in they have the option of giving up their titan or dying

Plus, you don't need to invest in the labor to fit/build another titan. It's a hell of a deal for goons. They also said it wasn't going to be an insulting price, but certainly not MSRP.

We've been at peace for several years staying nice and put in our corner of the galaxy and managed to build an impressive amount of citadels that the bad guys still aren't finished blowing up and won't be for a while even if we don't contest any of them.
