i have been successfully EVE free for about 6 months now.
you crazy kids in your frigates flying around empire. when you join a corp and then an alliance, the game totally changes. real politics happen and you have to defend space. race means almost fuck all out in 0.0.

I was a caldari manufacturer in Anzac alliance, founding corp of Southern Cross alliance. we took part in BOB War 1 (the death of ASCN) and BOB war 2 (BOB vs D2, GS etc). afaik Anza is still in Eso... when we lost AZN and our home system to the russians, it devastated Anza, like had happened countless times before.

i negotiated with 3ungle to leave SCA and anza and join ANP out in Fountain, but while carting 2 Badger2's full of 0.0 gear (and selling the rest) i happened to blunder into a pair of D2's guarding a gate. before i knew it half my Eve wide possessions were obliterated and months of 0.0 bullshit made me snap and i resigned that i would not continue treating EVE as a job or a significant part of my life any more.

i hauled my remaining possessions to Aridia, said my goodbyes. set Caldari Battleship V training, canceled my account and logged off.
that was February.
i got an email saying Revelations 2 came out and i flirted with the idea of going back... but no.


so i say again. kids. you have just scratched the surface.

Yeah I get the feeling that I am no where near even marking the surface of this game, yet alone scratching. At the moment its a very lonely experience.

Im trying to save up to buy GALLENTE industrial so i can fly those big industrial ships to carry ore.
Getting over flying back and forth the space station dropping off my valuable VELDSPAR hahahah.

Also sucks that you cant train skills on ALTs if they are in the same account, nearly pays of to have 2 accounts so you can have a money maker char and a fighter.

Sadly I've been pre-engaged every night this week so I haven't had much of a chance to get online. I have just over a week left on my trial so hopefully I can get some time in over the weekend.

are you gonna subscribe when the trial is up? I am for sure, i love the fact that the game isnt entirly based on how many hours you are logged in, but what skills you train while your offline to make your online time more efficiant.

Yeah that's why I can justify paying for it. I'm not paying money to ruin my life by sitting infront of the PC all the time. :)

And once you get something like a Destroyer to Battlecruiser the combat missions will be a bit easier and you can make lots of money doing them. More than mining Veldspar anyways. :P

then you reach the stage where you are building battlecruisers in lots of 10. then your corp says "shit, we need a Dread to take down hostile POS' in our system or else we'll lose sovreignty. make captital ship bits"

you say ok, and start BS mining Arkanor.

five hours into your 6th mining op you start wondering, "hang on, dont we have corp miners to do this?", but they're all off making their own fortunes while you are down to your last twenty mil trying to produce shit for an ungrateful corp.

Wow its just like real life =P

I think I'll be subscribing once my trial is up. At least for a few months until I decide I hate it. The bonus of this game is that you don't have to pay $90-something dollars to buy it plus subscription costs.

So I'm working on one of the early missions - where you have to use a blueprint and invent a Perpetual Motion II component. After stuffing around for ages, forgetting the components and having to travel back and forth several times, I finally get the blueprint made, and head back to the station to build it. The manufacturing centre says the process is going to take 15 minutes, and the server is to be shut down in 20 minutes, and to top it off, my takeaway curry order was due to be picked up in 10 minutes...

I got dinner, came back, delivered the item, finalised the mission, with a minute to spare before the server shutdown =P

I just finished the tutorial missions (making mountains out of molehills) and moved on to the next agent, he gives me some more courer missions (which i like), then gives me a mission to save some people from 2 deadspaces FULL of pirates, im like wtf. How insanly hard is the missions after the tutorials.
I thought level 1 was ment to be easy, isnt there agents who will just give you courer or minning missions? my crappy lil frigate cant do this shit hahaha.

Ah well, back to the veldspar astroid belt lol
Is there any way to make macros or anything to warp back and dock at the station, or mine nearest astroid, or even unload cargo?

Its funny, I was reading some reviews of Eve-Online that weren't too favourable. They say things like "Pretty much the only way to make money is to mine ore" and "it takes a long time to get anywhere" and I'm sitting there thinking "Missed the point much ?" =P

Quad I'll look you up when I get home tonight.

i like starting off as a mining shit kicker. Gives a better feeling of accomplishment when you earn those rail guns to start blowing away pirates.
I would like it if there where more newbie quests tho.

It is bad that I'm calculating how long I'm going to be away from the computer and choosing my skills training options to get the maximum potential out of it without wasting any time ?

Nope, planning out your skills like that is the smart way to do it
