75% of replies are from people who clearly wear their own arse as a hat. Props to the OP for enduring that.

Right or wrong (and for the record, most of what Mintchip said in the video is indeed wrong) this is very often the impression that new players (male and female) are left with. We can either help them to correct those misconceptions, or we can howl them down and drive them away as most of you seem to delight in.

More players = more targets = more money for CCP = more internet spaceship awesomeness. Put your effing e-peens away or I'll turn this damn car around and we'll go STRAIGHT HOME.

Hey Eve, I'm a girl gamer.

No I'm not fat. No I won't make you a sandwich. No I'm not ugly. No I don't go out with guy gamers, because they're usually socially ******ed and ugly. Yes my boyfriend is a bit of a jock, so what? No I won't show you my ****, so don't ****ing ask.

And finally.

Yes, we do ****ing exist, so stop saying otherwise. And we enjoy games (SHOCK HORROR) just as much as men.

Mint, you're either the bravest person i've ever met, or the craziest, because you don't seem dumb.

first, you made a youtube video using your screen name, second, you made your main with the same name, third, you put up a post here.

being female is secondary to voicing an opinion (any at all) on so many widely frequented channels, and then not covering your tracks by using an alias.

i try to not distinguish between male and female players, because to acknowledge anything more than basic biological needs does not really contribute to much of anything.

i would like to see more female players, but no more than i'd like to have more male players. all i really want is more demand for my products, the gender of the purchaser is no concern to me.

if you made another youtube video about three months in, your veiw of eve will be extremly different. another three months will see another difference.

in defence of the long newbie introdction to the game, this game allows permanent ship loss. permantnt equipment loss. even skill loss! having a few days before the newbies can actually begin to earn real isk, or fly amazing ships,makes them develope some skill. in theory.

in this game, if you screw up bad. maybe losing a pos full of your stuff after the outpost where your clone was was taken over, it is entirly possible to lose just about everything and have to start over with just the skills in your head and a noobship.

one time i did give all my isk from my main to my alt to try to see exactly how bad it would be to rat back up to a slasher and then do enough missions to get into the isk for a cruiser, and it was HARD, and it took several days.

rambly post closing. gender shouldnt be a factor in who we want to jon eve, and you're crazy in a good way.

p.s., nice hat! is that an amarrian character, because it might be fun to have another posting alt with that hat!

Im looking for a bento box, it cant be pinku (thats japanese for pink) or any girl color. It has to be of 2 or more kotoba (thats japanese for 2 compartments) and has be be chibi (small) sized. And has to be really kawaii (cute). Also It has to be about 10-20 bux. And you have to post pics of it first (i want to make shure it's kawaii [cute]). And it would be nice if it came with matching chopstick holder (WITH chopsticks). OH! and it CANNOT have any cartoon pictures, or be made out of plastic. It has to be made of ceramic, or something like that. Also it would be nice if it was made in japan. and not in china or corea (korea) or whatever. I have found a bento box similar to the one im describing in e-bay, but it was 1 kotoba, and i dont want my gohan (rice) to touch my other things (it can get wet and i would not like that, plus 2 compartments looks more kawaii)

@ Fianna

Has designs, but no kartoon characters XD

http://www.jlist.com/product/CHP051

dual tiered, chopsticks, holder, and has a divider. No description of material or place of manufacture.

http://www.jlist.com/product/BENTO293

large pic looks pink, small pic red? either way dual tiered, chopsticks, holder and has a divider.

No kotoba needed, just send me all of your alliance's isk and put the ships in Jita on private contract for free to me and I will mail either to you. XD

EVE is the only MMO where I can play occasionally and still have fun. No grind, no leveling requirements.
I play every now and then, an hour or two to several hours, often with several months away from the game in between.
I'm a horrible eve pilot but can still do some good in gang and fleet PVP. If there is absolutely no pvp action going on I can always run a mission or do some trading. But come on, you can always go on solo roams if you are the only one in your corp in the region.

Mostly PVP, some missions, some trading. Fly cheap crap and die often. The occasional loot from the rare victories will keep your wallet afloat. I currently have a buffer where I can take around 100 deaths before I need another victory. Don't let your ego get in the way of having fun.

EVE is all about the social part. The Corps!
Find a fun pvp-oriented corp that allows sporadic gamers. Don't bother whether you sit in the shiny new t3 cruiser or the oldest frig rustbucket as long as you have fun with your new internet friends.

Really: EVE is the best casual gaming MMO.
It can be a second job if you want it to be, but it doesn't have to be like that. In 2010 I probably played EVE less than 50 hours, but managed to die several times, had lots of PVP gang and fleet warfare, and lots of fun.

I have! I'm a big orson scott card fan... one might say <3





Big win to both of you. If I had the time I would try to re-create some battles from the book in EVE but I am to busy playing!

@Mintchip: Welcome to the forums; try to ignore the childishness here. Keep up the good attitude and enjoy the game!

From someone who does wear his arse as a hat. Eve is a pain in the ass/arse. So I must be an arse to keep paying every month something the drives me mad. Its so boring its addictive. Its so hard to figure out I can't stop playing with it. What makes it special is that it is a serious, serious game. I've heard that some economics professor somewhere makes his MBA students play. Thats how absurdly absurd this game is. So I play cause I'm demented and wear my arse as hat. A floppy hat at that.

Hello there Mintchip! I suppose many females play EVE Online but many also play male characters. I would never have heard of EVE if it wasn't for a female friend of mine. And no she does not live alone with her 99 cats. There are plenty of normal females who play the game. Wink

To be honest, your a *you tube* wanna be celeb. You've spent most of ur life playing MMO's where its great reward and little risk.

Look at ur vid? All pretty make up on, brushing your hair back. My wife only does then when she wants me to screw her to the wall.

EvE is a harsh eviorment. Either you fit in and adapt, or you gtfo. Ive seen your vids before, i know who you are and you think if you get enuff vid hits ull get famous.

Welcome to EvE, a mans game, it aint for girls, simply for one reason, PMS dont fit into eve online.

Thanks for your time.

Oh and i play WoW, Aion, Dungeon Siege, and EvE online is by FAR the better game, because on this game, u wanna get sumwhere? Put the effort and time in. In WoW you've got your pretty little epic mounts and armor sets, ur pink enchants, ur pink guild tabards.

And im not sexist, my wife is a huge gamer with me once the kids are in bed. And even she hates EvE, but she loves WoW, Aion and so on.

Whatever you believe doesn't matter, its a scientific fact that women and men have subtle psychological differences as well as the physical differences, it would be ridiculous to assume men cannot enjoy the same activities as women and vice versa or ever claim something is for men and something else is for women but it does colour the the individual response to stimuli in ways we only have a basic understanding of.

So yes she has a valid point about the way gender affects the perception of video games.
