have just reactivated my old account on a 5 day 'have another go' trial. the game seems to have added quite a few things that makes it easier to understand and what you should be doing. Not sure I'll pay for it again though, but definitely improved.

Everything about this game impresses me and makes me want to play, apart from the whole losing my life to an mmorpg bit.

What the hell is even going on in that picture chippy?

I'm afraid so... I nearly lost my lady friend over it - shirking of duties, taking all remaining holiday to play it, the continuous merging of early mornings in to late evenings, the loss of my ability to communicate using sentences instead of acronyms and grunts, amongst other things. Not to mention the fact that I lived with her, got really good at ignoring her and the PC was in our bedroom. We split up shortly after anyway.

I'm not sure I can justify spending 15 euros a month to play it. It's obviously a good game if you can get in with the right corp and such, but atm its still mainly ratting missions, locking on and fire missiles at optimal range...I really want to get into the game but with only 7mill skill points I doubt I'll be able to play it properly for ages.

this is from memory....

2.0-2.5 mill in learning
2.0-2.5 mill in spaceship command
1.2 mill in missile operation
800k in shields? or engineering?
and a bit in the rest.

I was flying a Caracal but switched down to a Kestrel to get used to the game again.

With low sp/experience you want to be pvping in a group. Myself and dave both started pvping on our 3rd day in the game with fuck all sp but it was tacklers in a gang. I'd avoid shitty litle wannabe pvp corps that might try to recruit you and find a good corp with a reputation who are willing to take in and train low experience pilots, for example GF and SniggWaffe although I'm sure there are plenty of others who fit the bill.

like blacknose says.

i was doing pvp in a rifter 1 week in. never looked back

money making in eve is a drag unless you get lots of frieghter kills etc. but you do need a good corp/alliance getting fed up of my alliance tbh.

Shooting POS is the single lamest thing in eve and one of the main reasons I quit. Just sayin'.

it is fucking huge. if you think my ship is a speck to the bigger ships in the those shots, which are nearly specks compared to the station we're shooting, which is a speck in the solar system we're in, and there are about 5000 (i think) systems. Peaking at about 40,000 simultaneous players currently as well.

There is a probably similar-ish game called Jumpgate Evolution in the works at the moment Kev, dunno if it's gonna be paid for or free though.
