Ok, where as this isnt my first MMO, but this IS, however, my first COMPLEX mmo, and I had a few questions and I was hoping someone would be so cool to help me out..

My main concern at the moment is, I'm on a trial account, and as such, I was wondering if when I can finally upgrade to a full account that if I had to start all over again or if I get to keep the account I've already made..

And then, is the community here a rather large RP related one, or mostly ooc just having fun with a game, or a mixture of the two? (I like a good RP, but I'm mostly just curious)

And then.. even though I seemingly have the game downloaded, to make a subscription based account do I need to pay for the game itself still?

Erm.. I probably have more questions somewhere.. I like this game so far, it's new and amazing! =D

Anyways, thanks for helping a poor nub like myself ^^;

You can upgrade your account and continue to play with your characters.

Not too sure about RP.. I'm not too much into that when it comes to computer games.

I think you have to pay like a $5 administration fee or something. Not much anyway.

Hi, and welcome to EVE!

When you upgrade to a full account the charge will be $19.95 (US) rather than the regular $14,95, and this includes 1 month of game time. You will be able to continue playing the character you have started without doing anything special. Oh, and you won't need to download any additional software, you already have the full client, just with some trial account features disabled which will be enabled as soon as you upgrade.

There is a good RP community here, you can see a list of some of the RP corps at , a thread in the Alliance and Corporation Recruitment Center.

Please feel free to ask any and all questions you may have, as you mentioned, EVE is a complex game, but the community is only to glad to help.

Fly safely, and have fun!

Nope, I started out with a trial account and I just paied the starting fee and the subscription fee and my char was upgraded from a trial to a full subscription.

As I have seen it there are many corps that are RP related but even more that are not. Most I've met is just ppl having a blast playing around with the game.

Though the RP aspect can be very fun aswell if you give your char a bit of backstory and find some fun RP'ers to hang with.

There is a one time starting fee when upgrading from a trial account (can't remember the exact ammount though it isn't much at all, think it is just an administrative fee for some changes in your account).

There is an rp community, but you have to check for rp corps also. A good starting point would be the Alliance and Corporation Recruitment Center, there is a sticky there with the role playing corps.

As per the game, you actually pay the game licence the first time you register (19.95$ the first month), and then the regular fee becomes lower the next months (14.95$ each month, or less if you take more than one month at a time).

Or you can buy a timecard and upgrade your trail account to a paying one.
