The old PvP lootable zones was fully optional. You'd enter them with a shot, and in the full knowledge that you might get looted.
But there was no requirement to do so, you could easily enjoy all of the advertised features of the service you payed for without ever entering a lootable zone.
This has changed.
You're advertising a huge, planet filled universe, freely available. You carefully avoid the sentence:
And it's theft and robbery that you are aiding. In any civilized culture theft is defined as "taking away valuable goods from a person against their will", and robbery then is "... using any kind of force". Nowhere ever was a paragraph saying "If you get looted in dangerous quarters, your fault, not a crime then" ...
This wasn't a major problem with the lootable PvP's on Caly. This has become a major problem with the decision to make space fully lootable. Suddenly, without any further warnings, you need to make yourself a possible victim of theft/ robbery when trying to explore the advertised possibilities of the game you had paid for.
This doesn't hurt me as a participant, directly. I have a Quad, fully armed, and I can hold my ground. But it hurts me in the way that the company I have invested some serious money in makes itself vulnerable to legal attacks, whose compensations might easily shut down the game, and thus annihilate my invested money.
This is where I am concerned. This is where I'd expect an answer.
I'm sorry but I have to chime in here. Did MA
throw you and all your lootables into space so you can be looted without your knowledge or permission? Or did you willingly choose to enter the PVP area, which is clearly WARNED and MARKED before and upon entering? I swear all you people are complaining about pvp being lootable. It is the correct thing to do in order to let markets flourish. The map proposed here: http://entropiamaps.com/how-Space-pvp-should-be.jpg
is a good alternative since it lets people hunt around their respective planets. (The only fix is that the red area extends to the corners so there is no way of getting to one planet or another without going through PVP. In this map, you can take the long way around going clockwise from calypso).
If you want to transfer your precious ores from one planet or another, fly on the Kronan or another MS. It will cost you but it highly increases of successful transport. Want to save yourself the ped and gamble by flying alone? Your choice. You die, you lose. That's the way the game is, stop whining. There are alternatives.
TL;DR: NO ONE FORCES YOU INTO PVP SPACE. YOU ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISKS WHICH YOU ARE BLANTANTLY INFORMED OF. THIS IS NOT STEALING.
