I log in everyday but it is only for a few minutes to do the Winter race so I can get my free breen ship however after I've done the race I normally log off again and play somewthing less grinding
due to the decrease in activity since S7 among other things.
exactly the reason why i constantly bring up pvp and needing a change to the insane grinding
in this game.
give something else for people to fight and aim for that doesn't require grinding.
but for some reason every time i bring up pvp, i get trolled and flamed
its almost like someone trying to sabotage the game. and not care about it being more then
what it can be. no ambition what so ever for the future of this game.
Mostly it is down to what you are focusing on. Focusing on something expands it to you, as this thread does for example.
Things are about average to me but then I don't get very invested in games, I treat them as I see them . As long as I get to pvp, pve and do what i want to do when I play, then things are great. I have been and have been having fun, so I am happy. Plenty of folk around.
Can only describe my own behaviour.
I am a major contributor to the starbase, and up to S7 there wasn't really any issues gathering resources. Fleetmarks were collected in a sensible fashion. Since the starbase were the 'only' major dil-sink, i could deal with it. After i have reached reputation T5 I might change my opinion a little bit again. Right now it feels overwhelming to do 'everything' all at once. Starbase and reputations. Subjectively I notice that I have lost interest in finding time to do fleetmarks. The embassy project is a lost civilization in the jungles of Brasil. Never touched it, cannot imagine I will either. Dilithium is my priority. I manage to fill my 8000 everyday one way or another, but my way of collecting it has changed. I never ever manage to participate in an academy event any longer. Instead i now log in an KDF and transfer contraband to the FED. Faster. Much faster.
All in all. I like S7, but finding those pesky fleetmarks is ****. Can't be bothered with the fleet. Almost. If I had'nt already put 2,6mil into it, i would prolly not bother joining a fleet. Hopefully i will eat my words and get back into my 'routine' of building the starbase when i have finished the reputations and certain items i want.
