I was sat thinking today and wondering, What are you most vivid memories of Eve?

I remember no tutorial, battleships that were like titans to behold, cruisers being huge, planet destroying behemoths that were to be truly feared. I remember being wasted by m0o in EC-P8R as I hunted in search of high end ore, ninja mining a single cycle at a time and running from 40k cruiser rats that struck fear into every player who saw them.

I remember no overview, and having to use the scanner with it's blinky lights to tell friend from foe. The half sphere blue radar, ultimately useless other than to orientate yourself roughly.

I remember the 15km run to a gate in curse with shaky hands as a Moa beat down heavy fire on my Caracal, screaming at the screen for the afterburner to run faster and the loss of my first cruiser, uninsured as I couldn't afford it.

I remember the ball of fire, the blue flash and watching in agony as it's hull dissolved into space, 4 kilometers from the gate. Rebuilding from scratch, with a brand new Caracal, feeling proud of the fact I'd taken such a beating and gotten back on my feet.

I remember my first kill, a Moa, while piloting my shiny Caracal, scourge heavy missiles detonating aganist it's hull in a cascade of bright light. The bastard wasn't laughing now. I felt the surge of fear on engagement, the adrenalyn at the thought of loss, then the rich feeling of triumph as his hull disintigrated and I laid waste to his capsule.

I remember the birth of my second face in eve, "Verone". The tutorial drone orbiting my Velator in the deadspace of Duripant, ready and eager to start again and pit my wits aganist Tranqulity. Taking my experiences in early 2004 and working to achive something.

Mining in a Thorax with 5 heavy drones as support to build my first battleship, while I protected Kaleeb from the belt rats in Ikami, and building him countless Caracal and Kestrel classes as he learned the game.

I remember boarding it, a Megathron, to the congratulations of my corp mates as they lined up outside while I undocked, then losing it in Akora and leaving my home in The Forge with a vision and drive to become something in Eve.

Joining SNIGG and my first ransom, a lone mining apocalypse in Obalyu V - Asteroid Belt 4, fifty million never made so easily in my life. My first wingman, Cetshwayo of SNIGG, a guy I still speak to today, three years on.

The launch of Exodus, the new mechanics, gameplay and ship classes thrown at me to explore.

I moved from Aridia, to Essence, to Lonetrek, Derelik, to Pureblind, Fade, Deklein, Scalding Pass, Curse, Catch, Khanid, Venal, Tenal, Tribute and many more, ransoming killing and doing it all with real friends, under one banner.

Then came Veto, my proudest moment in Eve as I paid the million ISK and put my name on the list as the founder of a real corporation of my own, banded together with several loyal and trustworthy likeminded friends. A slow start with tough times as the corp formed, but our small roster never giving up, eight of us declaring all out war on fifty member corporations, and bizzarely, winning.

After several months of highsec war, it was back to basics, Veto returned to outlawship. Our roster swelled to the point where I had to train more skills, applications flooded in... it was happening.

Cue the turn to Merc work after the siege of 9UY that saw FZN, EST, CCK, ATROX and VETO attract agression from eight alliances, over 10000 players set on our destruction.

Then came our friendship with the largest Mercenary alliance in Eve-Online, MC. My realisation of just how far Veto and I had come. Our contract aganist IAC for ISS which saw us flank the largest capital ship deployment in the history of Eve-Online.

And to current day, the formation of a training and trialling academy and the ingame alliance Veto Corp. A billion ISK raised as an ingame family to lay down the foundation for four words : Loyalty, Respect, Trust, Honor.

Our Life, Our Corp, Our Home...

After seeing all the complaining on these fourms about people's problems with the game, and their inability to comprehend just how groundbreaking the concept of Eve's unsharded world is. I thought I'd share a few things that Eve has given me over the years.

It's given me endless knowledge of human nature, and a deep insight to the working of the human mind.

It's helped me meet some of the finest people I've ever spoken to, It's made me learn infinitely more about the variety of cultures, traditions and customs that the countries of the world have, just by speaking to people and playing along side them

It's given me a thousand accents to listen to, and a million playstyles to adapt to, experiences and emotions I'll remember for the rest of my life, and given me the richest, deepest and most diverse virtual world in existance to explore and be a part of.

It's given me drive that I never knew I had, to the point of helping me out of game when times in real life got tough and I had the support of my corporation in Eve to help ease the pain.

Above all, it's shown me that no matter how hard the odds are stacked aganist me, if I want something badly enough here I can take it.

Finally, it's given me the knowledge that from speaking to so many people, from nothing in Eve, with a basic miner, a battered frigate and 1000 credits, a player, regardless of problems with game mechanics that have happened over the years, with enough determination and resolve can rise from obscurity to be a leader of a thousand man alliance, and turn the basic building blocks of the game into a huge superpower with infinite ingame dreams.

To the people who dispute this? You're not playing hard enough. To those who agree, enjoy your success as in Eve, it always comes before a great fall. How hard that fall is depends on how well you are prepared. I'm prepared for mine.

So I pose the question :

What has Eve given to you, and what experiences do you most vividly remember?

One thing remains, and call me a fanboy, but it deserves to be said.

After all the whining, problems, lag, patches, nerfs, boosts, testing, changes and balancing in Eve Online,

Thank you CCP, for the richest, most diverse, enjoyable and damn finest four years of my gaming life.

Roll on the ten year plan.

Nice post.

I remember many things of my previous Characters time in VETO that will live with me forever.
The best was the fight for 9UY. Simply awsome epic fights (lag though ugh) I got more kills in 2 weeks than I had for my entire eve life combined.
Some of the best pilots in eve fly in VETO including the brilliant Mellarinn. I remember many times flying along side him and feeling safer because of it.
And that brings me to my cuurent situation with Scagga who I met and flew with in VETO and we are forging a great new history for ourselves in Delictum 23216

Good luck VETO and I salute you o7

Having played in Beta as well I remember with vivid detail the blue sphere and the introduction of the overview etc.

So reading your post reminds me of a lot of eve history and good times.. thanks for that :)

A few things I remember distinctly that are a little more personal...

Running a m0o blockade in my thorax with dual MWDs... and making it! I remember no greater moment of fear when I came out of warp and saw two battleships blinking red and me having to go about 19km to the gate because it would randomly drop you a distance from the gate, ranging from 12 km to 40km.

I remember getting baited into being ganked by CONCORD by a griefer shooting a corp mates ore can very shortly after release when that didn't flag you. I lost my exequror...

I remember ninja mining bistot in fountain in a thorax because it could align faster to get away from the cruiser spawns. I also remember chain spawning them in the Pre-FA days lol.

I remember countless fleet fights against CA and now being a member of a different incarnation of CA still seems... odd.

I remember the day I said "screw it" and went pirate. Best decision I ever made. Signed up with Veto. Another incredible decision. Learned a TON about piracy and what it takes. Learned a lot about the character of the OP too and consequently I still hold a metric ****load of a respect for him. The only reason I left was because of a promise I made years ago to someone and I still miss my days in Veto.

I remember setting up manticore gangs and stealthbombing larger targets in a coordinated 1 volley.

Just a few of my memories.

However the biggest are four of my piracy kills.

The first I found a frieghter idling at a planet in low sec. Ransomed it for 800 mil. Easiest money I ever made.

Second, I had 30 minutes before work and I hopped on and went to a gate in low sec. Immediately found a hauler. Popped him at a gate. Ran off and came back for the loot only to find it full of officer and faction loot.

Third, it was my first day in Veto. and we went out to Amamake. Ganked an ISS Officer and Faction fit Scorpion.

Fourth, the same day, we were cruising low sec and a hauler got away from us at a gate. We chased it to the next gate only to have it drop a cyno field. Out popped a Pheonix. We tried to ransom it but he wouldn't pay the man ;)

I agree with all the above Verone.. I agree with all the ''old'' things, i agree with ''praising'' CCP for what they ''created''..


Really nice post mate...
Very nice post...
But you know what else i remember from when i started playing EvE 2 months before ''Exodus'' launched?

I remember there was no lag..



...

Almost 2 and a half years later...Im still playing cause i love this game.. But do something about the lag :) It has gotten better last couple of months, but it has in NO way reached the ''lag'' of pre-exodus EvE.

I remember leading a 20 noobie frig gang into a 3 man snigg gang.

Snig- 20 Ship kills, prolly around 15 pods.
Us- 0

Details: I seen 3 sniggs on the scanner, and I knew they were campin a gate with a large bubble, thorax, maller, and cant remember what hac.
I said 'eh what the hell' and said over ts 'we are all probably going to die, but its going to be fun as hell!'

See: eve-pirate video Pirating for fun 2, its somewhere on there SAS Strike Force :)


--

I remember killing 2 raptors and a rifter who tried to 3v1 me in PF- @ Orvolle gate, me being in a punisher. ( Autocannon punisher w/ plates and rep = w00t! )

--

I remember sitting on the Orvolle gate in PF- and nearly gave up getting a target when a taranis jumped in and instantly ran at me, being in a punisher, and agro'd me. I popped his ranis and I popped his pod. He sent me a mail cursing me out and saying he was afk and didnt even get the chance to fight back, when like I just said, he jumped through and immediately attacked ... Laughing

--

I remember killing a cyclone ratting in a belt in Decon, me being in a rifter.

--

I remember being scramed by a covetor and killed by his drones while he was mining in a belt in Decon, me being in a rifter.

--

I remember taking over an abandoned alliance with a friend, and then selling it for 750m. (Lacuna Viators Alliance)

EVE's given me alot. For one, its given me friendships that have so far lasted over a year. Its given a massive diverse universe in which to crap myself as I jump into gate camps.

EVE gave me experiences working under huge alliances as a nobody, and its given me so much joy.

One moment in particular that stands out in my EVE career, and I'm not brown nosing, was joining Veto. Nearly 7 months ago I got accepted into Veto with a video that I put together, I saw Veto as a legendry Pirate corporation that people were honoured to join. I saw it as a fantastic thing and I dropped everything I was doing then to join after my month old application was accepted.

Then, on my third day in Veto I popped my first capital ship, a Phoenix. Amongst other battleships that night, it was my true induction into Veto. 7 months on, I'm a Director logging on every day to meet some of the greatest people I've had the pleasure to meet, in one of the greatest virtual worlds I've ever had the fortune to enjoy.

I've experienced being a scumbag, to a carebear, to a scumbag, and then to a paid scumbag. Its the one game that around a year ago I said to myself, "I can see me playing this for a long time."

The most important thing to me is Veto, and Piracy, and for now Mercing. I've been a Pirate at heart from day one, and despite all of EVE's problems, I believe CCP will always be there. EVE isnt a one hit wonder. Its here and its not going away, and I think every player should appriciate that.

<3 to Veto.

Too much to remember. But i used to like the old jip(jump in points). When you jumped in to a system there was acouple of places in the system that you would appear, not at the other side of the gate like it is today.

But I remember jumping into a2 and Haji waiting for me on the other side. He was in a megathron. I was in my brand new megathron, lasers fitted and allLaughing. I had to scream in local for help as he teared into my hull. Luckily some guys came to my aid and I got out in structure. But from that day on it changed my life in eve and shaped hwo I would spend the rest of my time. YARRRR!!


Also before I got that mega. I rememebr all the time i had to put in to get a thorax only to fall asleep drunk and wake up in a pod. Think it happened 4 times. But I havent learned f all cause I still drink and fly Very Happy

What a fabulous post, Verone!!

My first memories of Eve were joining up with Celtic Industries - My first player corp. My first 3 months were spent in a mammoth in 2004 hauling ore all the time. After so much hauling I needed to take a break and thought I would never return to the game.

I eventually came back after about 2 months and scrimped and saved to get my first Rupture. Celts were part of FOE and at war with the MC at that time and, after undocking from the station in my new fitted Rupture - I warped to the New Caldari gate and was pretty much instapopped by NSN. My first taste of pvp Very Happy

I remember my first Empire war while in a corp called Demonic retribution and we managed to successfully ransom ravn666 for 10 mil Trit!!!

Then came the time to join Supremacy. This brought all sorts of fun and pew pew in the Curse region. It brought the siege of JV1V vs Xetic and RAT. Constant patrolling of the Curse pipe from HED-GP to LJ-VSW before moving on to the Northern War when The Five went up against PA and Co.

I remeber my application to FRICK and living down in Syndicate with the rest of Supremacy. NSN were on contract vs Goonfleet and Farjung came to probe out my Faction fitted CNR in U4. 30+ MC pilots hungry to pop this applicant as a welcome present :)

Thankfully that never happened!

I recall the night KIATolon had to babysit that same CNR when I warped to the station in U4 and forgot to press the dock button. I left the client running and that ship sat outside in 0.0 for 9 hours while a rotating group of BOS and Supremacy sat watching it!!

There was my first contract for FRICK against RA and the excitement of the first op as an MC member.

Then came my first participation in the Second Alliance Tournament and the sheer adrenaline pumping battles that took place. Anyone who says its not real pvp should see how much their hands shake after a fight! I know Seleene still dreams about that ASCN Eos Laughing

Then the opportunity to build the 4th Corp within the MC and watch how Eternity have developed from myself and my alt up to a 67 strong group of really great guys and our own Mothership BPO (no - you cant have one). Everyone of them is an asset to the MC.

Finally - my first fanfest and meeting some great people there. Chatting with devs, getting drunk and challenging Tyrrax to a 1 v 1 in his Impoc vrs my CNR. I would have lost horribly!!!

The game just keeps getting better and I hope to have many more memories as I intend to be here when the servers get switched off!

Thanks CCP and thanks Verone for the great thread.

I cant say I have seen what half of you veterans have seen, from EVEs birth, till today. But I know one thing: I love this game! That much I can tell you all!

The game aint perfect, but dam, its not far from being perfect! And for every publish. And for every patch. I see the game becoming better and better. With the additions I want and with the needed fixes!

All love and respect to the devs who have made this superb game! Continue the bloody good work!!!

Verone wins Eve. Great thread.

I remember how proud I was when I outfitted my Caracal with torpedoes.

I remember when battleships could swat a frigate doing 20+km/s from 200km away.

I remember when the Scorpion was a solo wtfpwnmobile.

I remember nicking a couple of thoraxes from my first corp to get some cash when I was an utter newbie Wink

What I've learned from EVE, is like any other MMO. You only get out of it as much as you put into it...

If you don't have the time to play hardcore, you will never be hardcore, nor very important to the persistent universe.

What I remember from EVE?

1) Setec, disliked him.
2) Space Invaders, disliked them.
3) m0o, disliked them.
4) First time I was pod-killed, Lianhaun got me trying to afk mine in an Indy in high sec during a war, lol...
5) Working with my corp (Infinicorp) to mine our asses off and get a corp MOA BPO. Getting my first MOA, was like the 3rd man in the corp to get one Smile.
6) Losing my MOA NPC hunting in Venal Sad.
7) The feeling that working together in EVE, you could accomplish anything.
8) The feeling that EVE was built for griefers.
9) Starting my forum warrior campaign against griefing. Never cared enough about a game to actually post on game forum site...
10) Realizing PVP isn't all bad, and joining a PVP corp that eventually got into CA. Realizing you can't make friends without TS and playing EVE as PvE only.
11) Loving large scale PvP engagements to death.
12) Hating lag due to large scale PvP engagements.
13) Setting up first 0.0 POS in Great Wildlands, that was a chore, but the experience was great.
14) CA->Keiretsu->LV Good fun being part of those alliances.
15) Hoping the DEV's can solve the lag issue.
16) Hoping my EVE-rut will end soon...
17) Realizing EVE is still the best MMO by far!

*EDIT: Removed the word hate, too strong a word for an MMO...

I remember only finding out how to train skills after two days. I had been trying to level up the skills by purchasing second, third, and fourth skillbooks for the skill i wanted to train and so on.

Also, mining in an imicus and hopping back and forth to station to unload it.

And ofc the whole magical time we all had in the early few months when nothing much was known and everyone was trying to find out what worked and what didn't. Much more exiting then now, when everything si predictable because youve already seen it.

I remember my first taste of PvP - killing a couple of Mercenary Frigates in Misaba with my Maller.

I remember activating my afterburner in Amarr and acidentally hitting the smartbomb button instead Embarassed

I remember getting pwned in the Amarrian championships because of missile activation range and a slight communications error.

I remember Doriam II's inauguration.

Oh the game is much better. So many options to diversify gameplay and empower players now that we didn't have before.

But, that doesn't take away that teh sheer wonder at the huge freedom and space is lost after a certain while in Eve, and replaced with the immersion of political drama and getting **** done. I personally prefer the former, altho I'm not disliking teh latter either.

Very nice post Verone!
I might aswell share some memories of my own;

I remember my first day in EVE, a loong time ago, and after only 10 minutes I was hooked.
I remember mining in my Tristan to afford my very first cruiser. I had two Miner II`s (bought them for a lot of money when those where expensive) and I mined for days. All of a sudden these random guys, one with an Apoc (!) offered to help me. I never thought IŽd meet such ncie guys in any online game. After about 1 week of mining, I finally bought my first Thorax. The feeling of undocking in it was so satisfying, such a rush!

I remember being in 0.0 for the first time, I felt totally free even though there were lots of bad guys out there. I had saved up for a Armageddon wich I used to mine my first 100 mil ISK.

I remember joining my first Pirate corp, whoŽs members I still play with today. At that moment I had my first real kill, only about 1 hour after I joined. The rush was.. wow! I can still remember the rest of my kills later on in my new career, when my hands where shaking so much I couldnŽt hit the right target!

I remember undocking in a 0.9 system, and seeing Gunni from mo0 outside in an Apoc, and even though I knew I was "safe", my heart started beating like some techo song.

I remember being killed for the first time by Tank CEO and one of his corp mates. Darn those Jump in Points :D

...and lots of other memories! I dare to say that EVE is the best game out there at the moment; you can do whatever you want, and be good at it.

I remember logging in right after down time and the race to various stations to get the minerals sold to the NPC as the buy orders would be reset.

I remember my tutorial agent sending me from Lonetrek to The Bleak Lands and being all alone there except for the flickering Amarr stations.

I also remember that tutorial drone you had a small fight with and then scooped up... I miss that drone now.Sad
I hope one day this concept will reappear in EVE.

But, that doesn't take away that teh sheer wonder at the huge freedom and space is lost after a certain while in Eve, and replaced with the immersion of political drama and getting **** done. I personally prefer the former, altho I'm not disliking teh latter either.



I know what you mean. I remember vividly looking at my noobship and thinking OMG that ship is awsome. Raawwaarrr.

I remember clicking on a pretty banner to be directed here to EVE-online. I remember thinking its a cool game, but cost too much, esp since I wouldn't know anybody and have no friends here.

I remember feeling excited when I found a Uni friend also played.

I remember undocking for the first time in Duripant with my shiny new Velator and running through the tutorial.

I remember being impressed by the mining part of the tutorial with its detail, how the mining laser's light reflected off the asteroid. Nothing I had played previously came close to the sheer beauty of the universe arrayed before me. I remember gaping at the detail when an NPC ship exploded in a shower of light and debris, and how the trajectory of the debris was pointed in the same direction as the ship was previously traveling.

I still have those first few screenshots.

I remember thinking I was doing a public service by shooting one of the many cans littering the tutorial end room.

I remember getting insta-popped when I undocked immediately with the criminal countdown still active.

I remember having the brilliant idea of making an omgwtfpwnmobile out of my velator buy fitting 2 civilian blasters on it. I remember spending an hour traveling to an 0.4 system to get my velator killed so that I could loot a free civ blaster. I remember realizing I couldn't survive long enough in my new velator to loot my old one. I remember realizing after all the effort I not only didn't have enough powergrid to fit 2 civ blasters, but that I would never have enough, even if I trained Eng to 5.

Good times being a noob. Best time ever. Life was simple then.
