Anyone a regular player? Been playing for a week and seems like a bit of fun muck around with while doing other things. Wondering if it gets painstakingly dull once you advanced a fair way.
Also, I'm looking to join an easy going corp, got kicked from the last one after 2 days for jokingly calling the captain a cunt. Woops.

I'd like to play it but it;'s bloody expensive.
|>>|| No. 12902
I'm not entirely familiar with the value of EVE Online's currency but I get the impression a decent player should be able to make 500 million ISK in thirty days easily.

And there you are. You should get a PLEX before the week is out. How have you been making your money?
|>>|| No. 12926
I have had a fair bit of help from a ladm8, getting the first wad of cash is the hard bit, then I can mindlessly scoot around buying low and selling high. Once you've got the skills and collateral, I can see it becoming much easier/fun.

Any incursion runners here? After the nerf it seems that the noble sport of Sansha popping has died. Hardly any fleets, even in specialised channels. I need a PLEX within 10 days too

I think they just zoomed into one of their targets, it's probably a domi or something considering the drone bay size, so despite the nos and laser turret (I suppose for agro because they're too cheap to fit rails) it's pretty much what you'd expect from a PvEer.

When I see sentences like this I wonder whether I actually want to get into MMOs if this is how I'll start talking.

Im starting EVE soon. Played it before and had fun watching the market so imma go hauling. Might try industry and sell ammo on the way. Could anyone advise me on skills?
|>>|| No. 15656
If it's purely industry you want, I highly advise you to train skills in shield and armour manipulation because the second you step in to a trade hub like Jita or Amarr you'll have people scanning your cargo down. To be honest, without an established corp or friends to help you, you won't get far industrial wise.
I've just returned from the Delve region (null sec), after having a falling out with the CEO of my corp and him for a joke "accidentally" going too far and killing my Rokh (it's fine, I went in to their POS, helped myself to a PLEX they had in a container and destroyed the other 4, totally lost 2 billion ISK to them)
I'm currently in the Genesis region, I would tell you to come and say hi, but well we're supposed to be anonymous. Any other questions feel free to ask in this thread and I'll check it.

I didn't reply sooner because I typed that last message on XBL.
Does the in game browser work yet?
I've done a little research and thought pumping intelligence and memory in character creation would be a good idea. The governing attributes to electronics, engineering, mechanics, what seem to be the general 'staying alive' skills; then industry for my market blunders.
am I correct in thinking attributes only reduce training time, or do they grant bonuses other too?
As for joining a corporation, I was hoping to float around high sec space for a while; exploring.

Are you building my computer?

Eve is definitely the most fascinating MMO game. I'd never want to play it but I do love reading about it.
|>>|| No. 15688
I quit playing about a year ago because it was taking up too much of my time, but the browser was pretty good then. Could handle youtube and google documents with no issues.
I'd be up for joining a .gs corp if one were to appear...

I was entertained to see more people playing System Shock 2 than EVE Online on Steam last night.
|>>|| No. 15692
Yep attributes reduce the time, if you select a skill and look through it's attributes you'll see that it tells you the 2 key skills that effect the skill. You can either pay to remap (expensive, this needs a PLEX) or you can throw implants in (needs cybernetics skills) to boost your attributes up. I've just finished my tech 2 armour and shield skills because I'm working towards a Tengu now.
You should take a look on twitch tv, you see all sorts on there. You should get the trial and give it a whirl for 2 weeks.
It is very time consuming, I'm not in another corp yet. It's kind of nice being a free soul left to my own thing. I've been taking great delight in flying a Manticore in to low sec space and telling them I'm about to bring a mining fleet in (it's even better when they call for reinforcements and you end up going from 3 on local to 20)
EVE has it's own launcher too which according to the numbers right now there are 47something thousand people playing.

Two weeks and 4 deleted characters later and I'm fed up with EVE already. Its a shame my aspergers traits have chosen the game as a 'special interest'; I can't stop thinking about it.
|>>|| No. 16068
As a 'sufferer' of OCD and aspergers I can say with confidence that I know difference between the two. but no worries, maybe my words translate badly.
|>>|| No. 16285
Its strange how everyone is so paranoid and touchy in EVE. I targeted a potential corp mate in an attempt to send a few friendly missiles his way but instead of laughing off a few tens of damage to his rechargable shields, he got all shitty with me and proceeded into some kind of mental breakdown. I found it funny how he insisted of his general kindness only seconds before announcing he and his friends will grief me from the game. The dudes name is LUCIA28, if anyone would like to have some fun with him. He is very easily wound up and I don't think his first language is English.

If you can't blow up someone's 100m isk ship and their 500m pod without everyone having a good chuckle about it over comms, then you're in the wrong corp.

I've never played EVE bar apart from shelling out a tenner for a subscription, playing about fifteen minutes, cancelling my subscription two weeks later after not having the willpower to learn.
I really do enjoy reading some of the stories though. The corporate espionage side of things is fascinating.
|>>|| No. 16346
It's one of those games that's far more entertaining to read about than to play. Like Dwarf Fortress.

Sounds like a cunt. Now that we've crushed TEST I'm going to be looking for things to do, let me know where she hangs out the most and I'm sure we can arrange a small party to come and shoot whatever she is flying.
If you ever change your mind and decide to come back let me know. I'll arrange a private chat or 2 and help you with anything you're stuck on.

Just thought I'd push this thread up. Recently returned to high sec from 0.0 after a I got disenchanted by the lack of a clear plan and regular leadership and as such I'm stuck in low sec doing archaeology sites to keep the ISK turning over. I know we have a few other EVE ladm8s, anyone interested in meeting up?
|>>|| No. 17217
PVP really is where its at. After running a PVE mission runner for a month, then an mining industrialist, I decided to finally give PVP a go. After only a few days my adrenaline was running like never before. Even as a shitty PVPer with only 1 win to my 30+ losses, I'm no longer scared of lowsec and beyond. After flying my destroyer headlong into a faction cruiser and its frigate escort and almost winning I can barely even think of going back to mission running in highsec. The only problem with soloing factional warfare is the cost but I've been funding my escapades with my mining character.

I stopped playing Eve a good 6 months ago but I still think about it on a weekly basis. How are things in Minmatar space, are we still losing the Mar/Matar war?
I really like the idea of running a high sec mission running corp but I can't think of many ways to recruit members. All I've got so far is renaming cans in starter systems and advertising in local chats. What else could I do to run up some interest? Maybe I could plan some kind of publicity event ..

If anyone is thinking of giving this eve a try, humble bundle is doing a eve bundle. You could get 30 days of playtime from the starter pack for 1p if you want.
|>>|| No. 18622
I wouldn't play Eve for 30 days if you paid me £200. I'd want something more akin to the wage of a decent accountant. It's about as interesting as accounting.

Played solidly for 6 years, flunked my final year of uni because of it. Now i think its boring and shit.

too many buttons.jpg
I remember watching some YT videos on EVE years back and thought it looked like good fun. Managed to get myself sent an invite and downloaded/loaded it all up.
I think I played for about 10 minutes before deciding that there were too many buttons and too many menus.
They've changed their PS3 Dust game to become a lot more like what people have posted here regarding the menu on the left. I've found it a lot more complicated to use from how it was originally and stopped playing.
I am a bit of a simpleton, in fact, my 'friends' cruelly call me 'Simple Tim' because my name is Timothy but I just felt like there was nothing intuitive about it.
Still, have enjoyed looking at the pictures in this thread and reading a bit about it all again.
|>>|| No. 18626
No, it isn't only you who is simple. I gave it 30 minutes and I never played it again.
|>>|| No. 18627
You could say the same about dwarf fortress though, and I've played that for god knows how many hours.
