30. No-one wants to fight unless they have x3 the numbers supported with ewar and logistics and with a supercapital fleet standing by for a convenient hot-drop.

31. Concequently, that lone raider looks like an easy kill? It ain't.

Spaceships act just like a rubber duck in a bathtub.

The "new topic" and "reply to topic" buttons are about as horribly placed as anything could ever be. EVER.

From their use of terms like 'levelling', 'raiding' and 'guild' you can spot idiots from some terrible game called wow who would like new eden to be more like wow, whatever the hell that is.

In Eve everybody scams, the difference is some people are smart enough to use an alt to do it.

eve taught me:

how to be a godless, scum sucking, uncaring SOB.

how to kill someone, for no reason, and not give a damn.

how to steal from others hard work, without a care or a passing glance.

how to murder and destroy with no regard for others.


i learned how to be less morally defensible.

and more human.

1. If the contract looks good, read it again, and check the numbers. If it still looks good, read again, again, including checking numbers. Then read it backwards. Then pause and read it again with a 3rd numbers check. If it looks good, it is probably a scam.

2. For every deal you miss for being slow, you will avoid 100 scams.

3. Accept mistakes by your Fleet commanders. There are reasons it is hard to get people to lead, so when someone steps up, cut them a fair amount of slack. (and recognize the Brillance of fleet commanders that can achieve good results using less than perfect materials...)

3a. Being an abnoxious jerk is not the same thing as leadership (although they can occur at the same time).

4. If victory happens, realize that people made it happen. Help those people make more victories.

5. Accept mistakes by your Corp leaders. If you can do better, then do so. But always do so with good grace. Corp leadership is a massive headache, be thankful someone else is doing it, and do what you can to keep them leading, so you don't have to.

6. Already knew patience, but Eve reinforced that knowledge ten fold.

7. However you do it, have a way to make good use of your time when you are camped, be it homework, another account, whatever. The biggest reward the enemy gets from camping you (be it a fleet, or an 'afk' cloaker...) is wasting your TIME. Deny them that reward. (I've been known to afk at a POS in ratting ship just to make an 'afk' cloaker THINK he he wasting someone's time. That ties him up, preventing him from annoying people actually doing something).

8. Even in Eve, ethics are important.

- Gallente: Peace loving hippies
Smoked something way too much and ended up with the most bizarre ships in New Eden

- Amarr: Religious fanatics who are the cause of many problems in New Eden
Use ultra shiny ships to blind their foes into submission

- Minmatar: Oppressed minorities of New Eden.
Found a couple junkyards and enough duct tape to construct a few battle worthy starships

- Caldari: Militaristic capitalists who can form an army of spaceships in under a month.
Totally badass. Nothing more to say.

Oh! One last thing:
Have a ton of patience and the cake is always a lie.

1) Scammers are everywhere, read everything, trust nothing.
2) The only justice you'll ever find is the justice your brought.
3) Though anything might be a trap, stupidity still exists in this universe, prepare for the former, enjoy the latter.
