As a relative Noob (and one who has just lost nearly everything after venturing into 0.3 with my Catalyst which, as I found out, wasn't as well protected as I thought) I'm getting concerned that I may be at a disadvantage of only having a few hours a week at most to play Eve.
There is a multitude of threads, wikis and the such but is there a Podcast anyone is aware of which will keep me up to date with what wars are going on, general Eve news, etc? Thanks. Any advice welcome.

Well, you are learning skills when you are offline anyway. You would be surprised how many EVE players only play a few hours a week.

As for podcasts - I recommend Podded. Each episode is about an hour long, with news, stories etc...

I'd advice tuning into regurarily. It's not exactly educational, but you get an idea of what's happening around EVE and you can join their events.

Excellent - thanks for the advice. Here's another question - as someone who could afford two accounts but doesn't have a lot of time to get online, is there a process by which one can 'sponsor' someone (pay for their account) as long as they 'worked' for you - in a contract, perhaps - giving them the option to buy themselves out at a later date?

I am trying to get a handle on your proposed contract. Are you saying you would pay for someone to have an account and play on their behalf but you would get ISK in return?

If that is the case you can purchase 2 PLEXes for $35 and then sell them in game for ~275 Mil ISK Per PLEX

1. Welcome! EVE has a massive learning curve, as you're witnessing first hand, but it's a great game and it's worth it.

2. Join a player corp ASAP. That's the best advice a new player can get. Find a friendly and welcoming corp that specifically mentions they offer training in their advertisements.

3. Venturing into low sec / null sec at this stage in your career will almost certainly result in your death. It won't always be that way. But for now, keep your destinations set to "safest route" and don't jump into space with a security status less than 0.5 until you've found a player corp who will get you relocated and get you into some training.

Fly safe and have fun!

Yes, the drone bay.
Granted it's not being done anymore, go and listen to the older episodes. It's quite good.

Thanks to all who responded. It's hard to explain to someone who doesn't know Eve just how many layers there are to it! Advice much appreciated.

You might also try the helpmymission chat channel and check out the podcast from the owners of said channel. The podcast is called Missions Collide and is a very good resource for learning the basics.

And unlike the other podcasts, they generally post theirs on time per schedule.
