Seriously, i could write a whole 10 page story on how much this games amazed me over the past week. I went from Ultima online, through a slew of other half assed games, and than finally onto World of Warcraft. For the last while ive been looking for a new game, and EVE finally caught my eye. I took CCP up on their 14 day free trial offer, and after 3 days upgraded it to a payed subscription simply because i knew my computer would have to blow up to keep me off this game.

Honestly im just posting this for any other new players like me who may not have tried the game yet. You will NOT be dissapointed i promise you that (as long as you have a place in your heart for sci-fi, exploration, lasers, flying, PVP, strategy, business, community, alliances, loyalty, pirates, hacking, stealing, or ANY single one of those)

I havent read much into the forums but i did see my share of criticism on the first page (this is not a bad thing) but despite that i can say that from what and who ive encountered in-game so far, even the community is downright awesome :)

Welcome to Eve....I've gotten a few friends hooked on this game like its crack to them..lol. And dont worry about the grips on the forum, you will notice after a while that people will ALWAYS grip on the forum but it doesnt really mean much lol. Besides, forums posters make up about 2% of the actual playerbase.

Taking bets on how long it will be before OP is hanging ten on one end of the highsecshieldhuggers to nullsecpoliticalpolesmokers spectrum (TM). I'd say from now until they quit but you never really seem to "quit" EvE. Even if you hate it you still seem compelled to maintain the subscription just to keep the skill timer from stopping. I think they're putting something in the code that subliminally programs us to NEVER EVER LET THE SKILL TIMER EXPIRE!!!DOOOMM!!.. or something.

Anyway, send isk bets with guesses directly to me in-game.

In your off-time, read about EVE game mechanics. Read more about EVE while you're playing, sound off on other experienced players to see if your ship fit does/doesn't work and why/why not. A year and a half into this game and I'm STILL learning something new about it almost every day.

Also, read about EVE.

A word of advice: Never take the game too seriously. Seriously. Never get publicly angry/emo at a loss of your e-space pixels no matter how big - that's blood in the water for some and rarely ends well.

Anyway, it's awfully :3c that you're enamored with this game as much as I am. Good luck and fly safe (or shoot first).

Seriously though, welcome to EVE :)

I too, have gone through a similar list of titles which you described, only to end up picking up EVE again about a year ago. It's still one of a kind.
Same here.
And welcome to EvE Mr. OP.

Welcome to Eve.

One advise I live to give you.

TRUST NO ONE

Everyone is out to make their mark in Eve and you if you trust anyone too much, they will rob you, pod you and laugh at you.

Other than that, Eve is a very deep game that will take you years to master.

Hope you have fun.

Easy for you to say, Chribba ... the tiny embers of love and empathy which are still left in EVE players are all taken up by you somehow and you know it ;-)

Correct me if im wrong but the I thought the forum rules stated that the mention of games other than Eve was not alowed!

So this thread seems to show two things

a: Its ok to mention other games if your slagging them off (world of warcraft)
b: its ok to mention other games if your moving on from them to Eve (Ultima online)

Can we get some amendments put in? YARRRR!!

P.S: Welcome to eve ugh

Nefalex,

Welcome to EVE and we are delighted that you are enjoying it so much Smile

I quickly broke your OP into paragraphs as, occasionally, some people prefer to focus on the lack of paragraphs. Hope you don't mind.

Too bad i was too lazy to save the link last time i made it, and now too lazy to make it again. But just pick that image and replace learning curve with UI and you got a correct image.

In principle the learning curve in eve isnt exceptionally steep, random RTS will have at least as steep. However granted, it is long since there is alot you can do in eve. However 90% of the steepness, and the main reason it is steeper than other games, comes from the terrible abomination they call a UI.
