EVE Online: Veteran Generations [Classification]

This is a break down of the veteran generations currently in EVE Online. It is entirely fictitious and based from my own observations of the universe.
This is written in an immersive style, I know that the players did not actual invent the mentioned Items, but a lot of it was requested because “The Developers Listen”! God Bless them!

1st “SECOND GENISIS BETA” Generation Veteran:
May 2003 – Dec 2003
The "Great" grandfathers of EVE online, who helped define EVE as we know it today requesting things like the corporation alliance system and fine tuning the mechanics we take for granted. Times back then times were hard with the battleship being king of the fleet and turning the table in any battle.

Those were the days..."



2nd "Castor" Generation Veteran:
Jan 2004 – Oct 2004
The grandfathers of EVE online, who where were the first pilots to be born into new eden after the wormhole closed. Technology showed little advancement in comparison to today, but tech level 2, and elite ships where created by research into mutating the technology of the old ships from the Exodus.

3rd Generation Veteran:
Nov 2004 – Nov 2005
After the second genesis, the universe began to shape up with new corporations and alliances forming every day. The never ending conquest for universal domination was fuelled by the vast expanses of space, giving endless possibilities. As a result they needed a way to sustain life in the most desolate regions on the out skirts of the new world. Player Owned Starbases (P.O.Ss) where created and eventually absorbed into the standard arsenal of new Eden. These brave soles were the fathers of modern day Eden. They created the standard civilian class faction ship (Not the mutated concord/navy mutation), giving homage to there empires who paved the way for them.

4th Generation Veteran:
Dec 2005 – Nov 2006
With the creation of P.O.Ss, the children of modern day Eden, had to find a way to destroy them! This saw the creation capital ships in the form of dreadnaughts and carriers. Slowly as pilots spent days studying to pilot them, they began to spring up in fleet battles, eventually becoming standard fleet ships.

5th Generation Veteran:
Dec 2006 – Nov 2007
With technology ever advancing, the grandchildren of modern-day Eden, used the capital ship technology to create Super Capital Ships. Metal Behemoths that house entire colonies of people, know as Titans, and carriers with advanced drone control technology allowing for more fighters to be housed in there bays.

“Current” Generation Veteran:
Dec 2007 - June 2008
As tensions rose between the empires, new measures had to be taken as new eden prepared for all out warfare.

“Current” Generation of Today:
July 2007 - ??? 2008
Who knows, this is the youth of today! Only time will tell!

This is my understanding of the veterans and the generation of EVE player. People subscribe in between patches, but form what I have seen, a lot

Hense Beta Generation

Im 3rd, but you can see a change in the style of game play as the generations go by. as the universe expands.

This is also a reason why I respect people older than me in game because with out them the game would be entirely different to how it is now. People seem to forget that in a way this game is tailor made to the request of the member base...

Okay new rating system:

Then this char is created in 2nd generation .. So I get to nominate myself to:

1st for me but I think we need a division in there. I joined in Feb 2004 and a lot of 'stuff' had already happened. I don't know where you'd draw the line but I'd put it at the point where the first BS took to the skies, perhaps. They were still expensive when I joined but not particularly rare or unusual.

3rd, Rerolled into current.

Glad I did, too, after taking so much time off. I miss my mega and the wallet, but it's coming back quick enough and I'm getting to re-learn and re-explore a lot of the changes since I first joined. The game really is very different, and no doubt will continue to change.

Beta Generation

Wonder what this list will be like in a few more years.

Also in a few more years will I be a great great great great grandfather?

Edit: There probably should be a division for when battleship rats and level 4 missions were introduced in Castor because these 2 things went a long way into making
the eve economy what it is today.

Edit2: Damnit now I am a great grandfather and you nija edited before I finished my first edit

You couldn't call your self a veteran if you didn't, its crazy isn't it how you guys are actually like senior citizens with your zimmer frames complaining about the youth of today, and how "These wipersnappers dont know the meaning of a hard universe...in my day we didint have mining barges or jumpclones...no no we had to dig the asteroid out with our bare hads and walk 2943029574230957234083427653847265387439572340573209 A.U, to each system.....you dont know what hard is boy!

ANd dont get me started on Salvaging....we had to make out ships out of sticks leaves and glue we fould in the station....yeah...really, didint you wonder why th eolder minmitar ships looked like that!!!"

Good move. I would consider myself second generation. The game was settled in and the die cast before I joined. Most aspects of game play were known and understood. Took me six months until I got my first BS. Ironically I was using it to do my salvaging until a month ago when I got a Golem. I wonder if I'll ever fly my 'Geddon again?

Merged them, becuase I see beta as when the worm hole first closed, and the few pilots were t****d in the universe. It makes sense that beta is part of the Exodus/Second "Begining" Genisis.

Im just glad that you can all see what IM getting at with generations of player...

Well, I'd say 1st "Second Genesis Beta" except that's the oldest generation class you have and I felt very young when I first started (July/Aug 2003). Indeed I think I'll always think of those who were there "when it all started" as being a generation above those who came in later, however slight those few months of difference may seem from today!

"I've seen things you wouldn't believe. Dual MWD Ravens racing their own torpedoes towards the enemy; half a dozen BS trying and failing to kill ever-accelerating cruiser spawns; haulers flying 20+ jumps to the nearest refinery, again and again; people bribing agents to improve their standing and security; shield-tanked Apocs with artillery; roids so big you had to fly back to them on double or triple MWD because you bounced that far off them when you warped in; buying Miner-IIs for 3 million isk each and thinking I'd got a bargain; or even buying Harvesters at 135k and thinking this was expensive!

Those were the days..."
