Oh and not yet having arthritis in his hands.

I'm 52 and have wicked arthritis in my hands, legs, feet, etc. But the Narcotics I take help and make EVE even look cooler...

Yeah, we older players dread the onset of incontinence, especially during long fleet ops Razz


Incontinence isn't the big problem for us old foggies ... It's staying awake. I've actually fallen asleep during gate camps and missions. Embarassed




I'm 40 and my father plays a number of games. This reminds me of a visit home. He was raiding in the "bad" game, and I could hear through vent his raid screaming at him to do whatever he was supposed to do. He was sitting there snoring away.

When he woke up, he said "that's what they get for going past 10 p.m."

Grats to you old folks on knowing how to work these new-fangled computer doohickeys.

(Kidding aside)

Really, anything past 70 and still sane enough to play games with us kiddies is awesome Very Happy

Guys, 76 isn't "old old" these days. 85+ is "old old". 70+ is oldish. 60+ is late middle age.



60 being middle age? what do you expect to live to 120 or something?

35-40 is half way to 70/80, if you last that long your pretty lucky, so middle age would have to be mid thirtys

*I* fully expect to live until 120. I would agree that 50-60 is late middle age. The only reason people don't last long is because they think they will live forever at 18- and do stupid stuff X)

Hey i witnessed a 60+ climb Kilimanjaro 2 weeks ago, so ~10+ is a piece of cake :)
In Hungarian we say "elj sokaig" for new born's and at birthdays - it meas leave for more longer! That goes for whomever is the oldest eve player (and his parents also where applicable :) )

How do they know?


"They" know everything...

...that and the fact that every person "of an age" has an irritating habit of prefacing every sentence with "I'm 83 you know" (but only obviously if they ARE 83.....you get the idea)

We HAd a Korean War vet in our corp a while ago, he wasn't really into pew pew as much as the rest of us at the time, so he left and joined an 0.0 alliance. he still plays the game and keeps in touch.

I hope I'm with it enough to play MMO's when i'm 70+ as well

Hey Maxx, sounds like we went down the same path...JES2 assembler mods/machine code zaps, local TSO commands, xmem services, etc. I'm still amazed by how much, oh, say, Windows OS has taken directly from MVS from 20+ years ok.

Been gaming the entire time.

You're "old" when you decide it makes more sense to have a monthly subscription rather than quarterly...just in case.

Puts whole new meaning to the term "ghost training."

my father played eve for 4 years
from 57 up to his death (61) Crying or Very sad

he was retired and would religiously wake up on weekends , make coffee and play eve

he would not solo pvp , but would enjoy his blackbird or other caldari support ship with me as scout/tackler .

his first low sec lost vs the shortbus squad made me laugh so hard
he came to me all pumped and said : listen! i got isk , go **** em up and ill pay you .

the famous i did not do nothing so why did you shoot me down Laughing
a great eve player , will be missed

confirming that there ain't no better father/son relationship then being the ceo of your dad

On the language thing,

I'm 45 and one of the big kicks I get about the game is taking in the new slang.

Pfft, Fail ,

^this 0/ 7o xxx-peen ...well can't grab any others. Pwn ?(I know, I'm a Square, that's so over like Groovy or something)

I thought l33t was pretty funny and creative but I guess it really strikes a nerve with some people.

I wish more non gamers knew what doing a Leroy Jenkins was or that it wasn't going out. I can't think of simpler way of expressing that complex concept . I'm drawing a blank on other expressions that came from things like fictional characters but there are some that are hundreds of years old that you'd never know came that way.

Fun to take in some new vernacular... keeps you young and I sort of love new ways of expression seeping in and out of the language. Some good ones stick, ("hip" is a good word hard to express any other way that came from jazz culture slang via slave words via an african language word hep-cat which was some sort of compliment or something not too close to the current meaning).

Enough ramble... I'm all for older players at least trying to adapt the current lingo even if we get it all wrong.

he took the game far more seriously then us younger kids
he was great logistic player helping the young guns with ammo and ships logictics

so all we had to do is pew Twisted Evil


and yup it was young but he was a woodstock kid , so took a lot of things that shorten your life , if you know what i mean

died on stage with his band at a party i organised , sounds shocking but i would want to go the same way :Rockin' Wink

That's a lie. The oldest player is at least 79.
