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.

Thought I'd finally take a look at EVE, since it's been intriguing me for a while. But bloody hell, £10 a month?! They must be 'avin a giraffe.
|>>|| No. 12796
It's ridiculously cheap compared to other mmog's!
Also on topic, this is a pretty interesting mash-up; http://www.dust514.org/. Nerds on their PCs, hire other nerd mercenary Corps on their Playstation 3's to fight over planets in an FPS game, which in turn has real consequences in the EVE universe. Despite the cheesy and quite bland trailer, the concept sounds innovative.
|>>|| No. 12799
That actually sounds like quite a cool idea. Never tried EVE as it seems more like a second job, but I'd be into this.
|>>|| No. 12800
Yeah! reading a little further, it seems space ships and stuff in orbit above the FPS site will be able to orbital bombard PS3 players, likewise, players on the ground can interact/destroy orbiting ships.
This cross platform shit seems so future!
|>>|| No. 12802
Yeah OP, we've discussed EVE a number of times on /w/, and there's always some yearning for a .gs corp that goes nowhere. But personally i couldn't get into EVE because of the expens-
What?! It's only a tenner now? I'm certain it was more last i checked. That actually sounds reasonable.
Incidentally since the introduction of PLEX the idea is that you stop paying once you become good enough because you are able to buy game time with ISK.
|>>|| No. 12803
It's just gone down as they introduced cheaper rates for paying in pounds yesterday - i think it was 15 euro before.
There used to be a few of us on there but the britfags channel has been quiet for a long time - i'm still on there now and again though not as much due to working more than usual.
|>>|| No. 12804
Must have missed those, I wouldn't have looked twice if it was any more than that.
As for Plex, I've spoken to a few people who grinded away their 14 day trial and got enough for the PLEX, even with shitty skills and ships. Though that doesn't sound so fun and for the sake of a tenner, why bother? But it's perfectly feasible.
After a bit of reading, seems you can easily nullify the more tedious aspects of the game. Set up a mining Macro in 2 minutes and leave it running while you do other things. Hey you got a few million credits! Time to go blast things.
A Britfa.gs Corp would be wonderful, though seems I made it out here a little late.
I find some of these videos hilariously dramatic;

I wouldn't recommend joining now anyway, ship and material prices are still ridiculously high after the whole Burn Jita debacle.
|>>|| No. 12806
I don't play this but looking at that image makes me want to ask something.
>"accepted currencies for purchasing game time"
Is this what it sounds like? You don't buy hours/minute to play this do you?
|>>|| No. 12808
Well not in as small units as hours and minutes, but yes, of course you do. Most professionally-made massively multiplayer online games charge a subscription fee, and in return the developers keep on developin'.
|>>|| No. 12810
Fancy posting a buddy account invite? I'm about 80% sure I'll subscribe, so, free plex
|>>|| No. 12811
It's a nice game if you can get a decent group of friends going. I daresay this is probably a great time to start getting into it as CCP is busy trying to prove that they're not incompetent.
Who knows, if some lads start materialising I might even log in and change the channel MOTD.
You need to post a receiving email for the buddy program thing I think.
|>>|| No. 12812
From what I've seen, the burn Jita stuff was a welcome shake up. Though some of the people I spoke to seem to think the point of the game is to become some online magnate, accumulating a vast wealth they'll never enjoy.
|>>|| No. 12813
I've sent you an invite now and I suspect I know who >>12811 is! I'd agree it's a good time to get into it, the last update was the best in a while since they returned to adding stuff people actually wanted.
If you end up subscribing and I get a plex out of it I'm happy to give you half or the equivalent in ships/isk or whatever.
|>>|| No. 12822
So, is there a .gs corp or not? How many of us are there?
|>>|| No. 12824
Oh no, I get that; sorry. It was just the way it was worded was as if you actually paid for minutes and hours rather than just a flat out monthly subscription.
Cheers though, lad!
|>>|| No. 12840
Can anybody recommend a decent start up guide for the game? It looks rather complex...
|>>|| No. 12841
There's 5 or 6 missions at the first base you come to that guide you through the basics and throw loads of free ships your way. Frequent trips to wikipedia after that.
Though to be honest, it's not bad. It feel a little clunky at first is all.
|>>|| No. 12863
Keep posting about EVE please. It's a fascinating game and I like reading about it while I work up the courage to actually pay the subscription fee and play it beyond the free trials I've done in the past.
|>>|| No. 12868
I'm somewhat frustrated by the skills levelling system in this game. It could be a little more involving, as I don't feel like I'm making the most of my £10/month when all I can do is sit around and wait for hours and days on end.
|>>|| No. 12871
Why don't you actually use your £10 a month to go out and make some cash?
To be honest when I start playing EVE I'm going to see if I can run a few of those scams posted on that blog. Apparently all you have to do is say in the public channel that you're leaving the game and will give back any ISK wired to you ten times, and the money flows in. And judging by the bloke on the blog's success there are always some careless rich idiots around willing to try it.
Pulling sophisticated confidence tricks must be one of the funnest parts of the game. It's like a real-life, no-risk Hustle.
|>>|| No. 12879
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.
|>>|| No. 12915
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.
|>>|| No. 13034
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
|>>|| No. 14607
You know who you are, Jan or San or Fam, whatever your toon's called. My graphics card dun blown up. Drop me an email at Ducksindecline@gmail.com. ta
|>>|| No. 14665
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.
|>>|| No. 14671
When I see sentences like this I wonder whether I actually want to get into MMOs if this is how I'll start talking.
|>>|| No. 15655
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.
|>>|| No. 15685
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.
>I would tell you to come and say hi, but well we're supposed to be anonymous.
Are you building my computer?
|>>|| No. 15686
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...
|>>|| No. 15690
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.
|>>|| No. 16298
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.
|>>|| No. 16335
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.
|>>|| No. 16538
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.
|>>|| No. 17205
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.
|>>|| No. 18596
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.
