It’s been several years (around 4) since I “played” EVE, but am looking to try and get into it again. I’m still very much a tyro. In fact, I know less now than I did 4 years ago. I’ve purchased three months and intend to putter around and see if I can smile, laugh, rage and cry enough in healthy proportions to continue to be the relatively stable and happy person that I am. I will probably mine a little, and do some explorations/scanning if I can remember how and then branch out or not from there.
I’ve logged on to find myself in a Skiff in the Gulfonodi System in the Fittakan Constellation of the Molden Heath. It’s a .5 system with 2 adjacent .6 systems. I’ve yet to undock. While I do love pvp, I’ve never actively chosen to engage in it while playing EVE because I just knew so little about the game and I prefer to learn everything else before I pvp.
First problem: There seems to be in an inordinate amount of WANTED folks in local chat, with the rest being at or below 5.0 security rating. Am I in some kind of pvp kill zone? I’m pretty sure it wasn’t this way when I logged off 4 years ago…I’m not one to court danger when I’m so ignorant…and in a Skiff.
Any help or guidance will be much appreciated.
P.S. I’ve only seen two folks docked at the same station that I am docked. Both were wanted and one has a 277 million bounty. The one with the bounty has been docked every time I log in.
