Now I have 17 million free skill points and there’s a huge shitstorm raging in various places because CCP is once again totally dragging the miners into the abyss. At least that’s what they say. The whole thing is fuelled by people who don’t have a clue or only read half of the patchnotes and there we have it. I personally like the changes a lot…
The miners in EVE Online always remind me a bit of the German farmers. Sorry, if any of you are reading along now. A profession that is supported in all respects and yet is always complaining. Too little HP and sacrifices for gankers? CCP buffs the HP, the miners fit their ships now more yield, don’t benefit from the changes because they use the extra resi or slot for something completely different and whine again that “their” gameplay is monotonous, without challenges and basically they are the victims for everything evil in this galaxy.
This upgrading each other and shouting around has been going on for years. On the forums, in chats and stream, the fairy tale of semi-afk mining is told throughout and the best tips are given on how best not to pay a mining permit and CODE. on negative standing. These are fucking basics without added value. Every newbie will figure that out for himself at some point.
But no one teaches the budding mining newbies how best to behave in such a way that a gank can’t even happen. Or how to properly fit your ship, or how not to carry a big target around on your forehead in general, and so on and so forth. However, the more than poor transfer performance of many newbies should not go unmentioned at this point. Those who senselessly copy fittings without understanding them or adapting them to the respective ship also wear jogging trousers in public. The famous learning level still exists in EVE.
The Rorqual/Orca is generated in mining yield? YES YES YES BECAUSE THAT’S A DAMN GOOD THING!!!
I and many other people have written many times that the Rorqual is not a mining ship, it is only there to support mining operations. Herds of Rorquals that undock in 0.0 and empty the Belts are now hopefully wet old man fantasies that belong to the past, because finally CCP has also adjusted the Rorqual role once again. Or should we say: Rowed back and adjusted again?
Thanks to the patch, I now have a total of 17 million free skill points. However, I’m thinking about at least filling up the skills that have fallen out for the new/old refining skills.
What do you do with your surplus skills? Are you satisfied as a miner?
