I've been amused at some of the discussion and interest in Tags 4 Sec in the low sec, pirate community. This is a big deal for us. I know that people are crying over the scanning changes and the skill point changes and generally flooding the forums in sweet, salty oceans. But there are two things more important in the long run for me and the health of Low Sec Space in general.
1 - Tags 4 Sec. I can talk and talk and talk but right now I'm rather tired of hearing myself. Instead, I skimmed my chat logs since the patch and will now share the secret, inner world of what some pirates think of the Tags 4 Sec change. In one motion I rip away the veil across the land of PvP.
"He's wanting tags like crazy to avoid cops"
"Ended up dying because I was webbed by the (tag) rat and couldn't get out until dram was dead"
"I think I looted that fight, and the half structure transporter"
"I almost died to negotiator"
"I had to heat my guns vs (tag) rat, wtf"
"Clone Soldier Negotiator Tag only took clearing like 30 belts"
"m8 he just wants to come to low sec for sec tags like the rest of us"
"Wait until everyone who is stockpiling them floods the market. We'll be burning stacks of tags to stay warm"
"Sard, you should stream yourself ratting for tags"
"I have a fellow scholar ratting for tags in a cane"
"Swear to god these new tag rats are the only good thing to come out of this expansion"
"I'm likely throwing away a few bil by not selling them asap but I don't actually value that few bil compared to being able to get more sec back"
"I doubt I'll be raising my sec at all. Aside from how much it'll raise from ratting if this turns out to actually be profitable."
"All these tag rats keep raising my sec"
"I can vouch for arty for ratting. Super ammo efficient, great projection"
"I'm looking for fights... with tag rats"The second important thing:
I give zero fucks about what other people would do with their ISK. It is my ISK and my internet spacepixel precious.
