I just logged in and saw 584 in the middle of a work day, Thurs, noon, EST. I'd guess that Euro ppl are still at work?

The Game is not fun................it's an effing Job, this is how it is for me.  I don't want to be in a clan to enjoy a game, i don't want to procure stuff for days, only to lose it due to port change or poor performance in combat, and I don't want to play all darn night just to accomplish some basic functions/goals. It's an effing job......game is a joy to the hardcore player....it's their game, they shouldn't be surprised by generally  low participation.

I'm sure you're correct.  If stuff (ships/books/mods) was easy to acquire, we'd have all sorts of players out in the OW.....Because they would have no fear of losing.  Now, it's a major disaster (except for Ed).

It think this is one of the main reasons, how can the devs accept it that alot of the time people point there ship in a direction, and then go watch netflix or do something else...that means something is definitly wrong..its not fun to watch the back of a trade ship for 1hour for a measly 150k profit, grind is to high and sense of achievement way to low in this game.

if trader brigs did not count towards the 6th rate pvp mission - I think i'd actually never get it finished.

no - keep it the way it is.

The reward for 6th rate PvP mission sis pretty low anyway. It’s probably more profitable to complete 50% of your cargo missions with a trader brig than finding enough player 6th rates to kill and competing that. And thus, the state of the game.

Gold chest with combat marks is not pretty low, especially when people do them over and over and over.  A guy in a requin jumping a battle where a newby in a mercury fighting an AI brig. slam/board /kill  "me strong HURR DURR GOTTA GET ME RIBBON screw noobz!)  Wash/rinse/repeat until there are no noobs left around, then like locusts they go somewhere else.  The new players?  They either teleport away (if they have other outposts, try to stay inside the capital zone (uugh) or just turn the game off in frustration and vent somewhere.  Maybe they try it again, maybe they say screw it because "This game is just hello kittyed!" and uninstall and play another game.  Developer has disclosed data that 5000 new accounts bought since release, retention has been abysmal.  Mr HURR DURR RIBBONS AND SHINEYS stomp NOOBZ!  is part of the reason why.

So, isn't it up to the big players and clans to look after new players...?

Abandoning Capitals isn't the answer either, as the new players have zero back up...I think some nations need take a look at themselves and stop playing the victim card....

Tell me, why it is up to players to protect their  nation newbies. They get nothing for it.

There used to exist a mechanic in place that did that perfectly. There was No newb ganking at capital at all or verry little. It was removed!

Conclusion: devs dont like new players!

Basically we have a situation where people like Ed are defiant of decent human behaviour and will continue to abuse people whilst mocking those who actually care about the game in chat, because they can with impunity.  Therein you have a memememememe mentality that is borderline narcissist coupled with sociopathic actions who, due to broken game mechanics that REWARD such population killing behaviour in the form of shineys to post in chat like kids showing off their bottle caps or pokeman cards to people that don't care.  Many will continue this, in the end, self defeating behaviour, until they have no easy marks left and they quit due to being ignored or hunted down as one of the few targets left in the server.  At that point they will blame the Devs, of course, because NO ONE is responsible except someone else.

With such individuals there has to be hard coded game mechanics that rather than reward such sociopathic behaviour, actually punish it, like in real life.  Players that behave like Ed have indirectly COST the developers untold amounts of money in new referrrel sales, or DLC sales, due to a really shitty new player experience provided by laughing maniacs who gotta get them shineys.

This is all true, except there is no hardcore in hauling resources and delivering missions all effing day. 

And for those who are new to game (like the real real newbs) it takes forever to figure shit out, make some money, set up crafting and so on.
