spent a week watching a ship shoot some lasers at a rock.

had someone 'suicide gank' me in 1.0, and the cost to buy everything back that was lost is the price of what what i had 'earned' in a week of mining

so...uh....thats fun and worth worth $15/month plus watching a laser beam??

Who said Eve was fun? Eve is not an instant gratification game, well at least not at the moment anyway.

Finding a corp that can help you learn the ropes would be a good place to start, might make a difference in your eve experience.

Go buy a monocle. Without a monocle you literally cannot have fun in EVE.

You miss the point: You're a substandard player because you're incapable of thinking, planning, and coming up with something more entertaining than what you did.

In other words, you're a failure at the sandbox that is Eve.

Just wait a few weeks, you can just buy stuff on NEX to make your game play happier and maybe you can get a monocle to hide the tears.

Your name is hacksolo, and yet you didn't take the opportunity to either hack radar sites or smuggle valuable goods through lowsec? I am disappoint.

Welcome to EvE and deeper thinking.

Or ... not.


See yourself as entering into a huge world, in which you can do whatever you want ...
... and learn the consequences of your behaviour.

It's a sandbox. You can do whatever you want,
nobody grinds you through content.

Often People fail in explaining how it works and how you should behave, in game,
and then new***s start killing rocks... which can get them killed, too. ^^



TL;DR:

Learn2play EvE, noob. Won't be missed. o/

Insert words here that make you feel inadequate as a player, and goat you into staying.... in hopes of one day getting "even".

Good, the eve community is in no immediate danger of being accused of being either friendly or welcoming.

Please continue.

Well, the replies to your post say it all about the EVE community. As if someone suicide ganking a noob didn't say enough in itself. There is more to the game, but the forum community is a cesspool of obnoxious trolls. In game its slighty better, but not much. And no it's not worth $15 a month, not even close.

well since they have changed the mining lasers to a constant beam, and the sounds are broken. I can understand your lack of anthousiasm.

But you should have experienced the drone of 5 mining lasers pulsing away at a large fat rock of crokite. Theres nothing like it ugh

Laughing

Ok, but really, if someone suicide ganked you in the first week I'm actually pretty sure that counts as newbie griefing and should be petition-able.
Unless of course you were actually hauling something around worth a suicide gank.

If you did the tutorials you should have quite a few ships, modules and money already to make 1 loss less troublesome... you did do the tutorial missions right?

Speaking of which, try combat missions, exploration, and when you've found out something you do like, join a corp that does that.

While you are correct about the forums you are way off on the playerbase. As far as the price, get over it. How much does your pc cost? new games? A pitcher of beer and a side of fries? Not to mention it free if you want it to be. Now show my on the hulk where the bad pirates touched you xD

I remember when I was new and I thought that Self Destruction of my ship had some kind of AoE/Splash Damage effect. I tested this theory by flying up to some random in an asteroid belt, hoping to gain my 1st suicide kill (guess I took that a bit too literally, huh?), hit self destruct and watched my ship go POP! lol

Was a bit upset when I realized no damage had been done to the miner.

One of the funniest moments of my EVE career, aside from the time I flew my ship into a Fleet member's smart bombs.

There are kids who sit in the sandbox staring at the sand, kids who gather huge piles of sand, kids who run around and steal other kids' sand, kids who build sandcastles, kids who destroy sandcastles, kids who throw sand at other kids for fun. Which kid are you, and why do you think you got bored? Very Happy

EVE is not fun, it never has been.

Its a game you play, while playing another game / doing somthing else.
