Comment Re:The most exciting PvP experience I've ever had (Score 2, Insightful) 101

Before last winter's patch, spontaneous 600-800 man battles were quite playable, and 1200 was doable with a reinforced node. However, something went terribly wrong with that expansion, and we now have crippling lag with even 600 on a reinforced node. The issue is causing a lot of upset amongst the game's space-holding contingency (who happen to provide the majority of advertising for CCP). It's an issue that CCP needs to fix soon, or they face a mass exodus of their veteran players.

No offense, but you must have been pretty terrible to have that experience in highsec, or you talked a lot of smack and pissed people off. I've played the game for over two years, spending significant amounts of time in highsec, lowsec, and nullsec, and I have never been killed in highsec by another player. Not once. Avoiding conflict in high security space is quite easy if you keep your wits about you and don't smack like a child.

I've got a bad feeling about this.
