EVE Online Crucible Update Trailer

Out now is the new big free update for EVE Online known as the Crucible. This update has a ton of stuff in it, like three new captain’s quarters and engine trails and, oh yeah, a graphical overhaul. It’s not an insignificant update is what I’m saying. Take a look at what you’re in for with this trailer:

I enjoyed eve online but high sec is too dangerous, I lost a 200million isk Hulk (Best Mining Ship with the Best upgrades) just hanging out at one of the belts. Worst part is they lost two ships that cost them probably about 3million and they only managed to get about 40 million in scrap from the hulk, stupid having such small rewards for such an expensive ship so its really just griefing, time it takes to replace something like that can take a long time without the right connections which makes the game a waste of time, those stupid idiots that do that sort of thing are the ones driving the prices up for everything.

If you never played eve don’t bother, its not newb friendly or solo friendly, jump into a large learning curve and then once you find a good corp you’ll find yourself depending on everyone around you 99% of the time. game requires 70% work with only 30% in returns, time waste vs fun ratio is really screwed up. Miners like myself have it the worst.

I am sorry you had a hard time, but what you say is very biased in a negative way. I started Eve as a miner and mined for a year in high sec without losing one single ship.

I have played for five years now and have never lost a hulk at all, in high sec or 0.0. I am not saying that it does not happen or that it did not happen to you. It does and it probably did happen to you. But that isn’t all that Eve is about.

Eve allows for players to do whatever, so yes, bad things happen. But many good things happen also. I have given out hundreds of ships and millions of isk to new players.

Eve has a harsh learning curve, and the “death penalty” is none easier. But if you keep your eyes open and use your head there is no reason to fail. Risk vs reward is very active in Eve and you can use it to your advantage.

Eve is the freedom to do everything, anything, or nothing. Yo do not need to grind xp to advance your character. So you can focus on what you want to do to make isk. There is risk no matter what you do and you may lose a lot and have to start your financial empire over, but if you learn it won’t happen more than once.

Eve is not your little sister’s game for sure. On the other hand it allows you to be as big or small as you want to be.

If you want to try it out join Eve University, all they do is help new players.

Just get a trail so you can see the new space, totally awesome.

Sounds like you have been lucky, I used to be a wormhole junky, I spent up to 7 months in one once only leaving once a month to sell ore, And I never lost a single mining ship or orca doing that but people lose there’s all the time, the fact is you have been extremely lucky or camping in the higher 1.0 sec areas where aid comes to you a lot faster then in .5 .

Sad thing is there is too much freedom for people, I love low sec and im glad its there but like i said so little gain for such a stupidly expensive ship is well dumb. 1 hour of mining in high sec with best setup for speed with orca boost nets you about 8m isk, lets say (its been awhile since i played) vs the 200m ship + tack on another 50 mill for deepcore tech2 stuff and so it = stupid.

When I was playing hulks where 110m, then I quit 6 months and came back to find them 200m so prices have been going up from what I noticed too.
