Blog Banter 32

“A quick view of the Eve Online forums can always find someone complaining about being suicide ganked, whining about some scam they fell for or other such tears. With the Goons’ Ice Interdiction claiming a vast amount of mining ships, there were calls for an “opt out of PvP” option. 


Should this happen? Should people be able to opt-out of PvP in Eve Online. Should CONCORD prevent crime rather than just handing out justice after the event? Or do the hi-sec population already have too much protection from the scum and villainy that inhabits the game?”

If you know anything about me you can see this coming a mile off.  If you don’t, and judging by the number of people I have coming from Ripard against older readers, you might not, I am a bit abrupt on this topic.

You can already opt-out of PvP.

Click on This and PvP is in Your Future!

If you don’t hit that button, they can’t blow up your ship.  Whine all you want, EvE is a PvP game.  Everyone vs. Everyone.

Of course your market orders will still get undercut, you will fall for scam contracts. Your spreadsheets won’t predict the spike in prices of the commodity you dumped, in short, if you don’t want pvp in any form:  Click Here.

P.S. if you like that game let me know, we really do want to review it on my podcast on Don’t Stand in the Fire.

  1. Blimey, that was quick. And I’m sure I’ve seen the graphic somewhere before, how many times have you used it now? 😉

    Fair point though.
