Hook up with eve uni, for here is where the game starts for you.

Mining = as much fun as washing your privates with sandpaper.

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.


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

This is why CCP is putting in Micro Transactions.
Instead of $20 they can get $120 from the drive by EVE player and his Aurum bought 2 miner Badger will still be dead in 1.0 sec.

Welcome to

EVE

Or as those at CCP like to call it, the other NGE

I enjoy EVE a lot. Been playing for a week or so.
You either love the game, or hate it. Simple as that.

I could tell you that you'll be missed and it's a tragedy every time a new player decides against playing, but I would be lying. Have a nice trip back to hello kitty online.

I think I might just use this in a paper I'm writing, if that's okay with you?

Why oh why are you mining???

That is the WORST thing you can do in game.

Open up the help window and look for agents, not only will you get free ships / loot/skill books, but you will begin your career helping you improve standings and gain access to the LP store.

I can't stress enough how important agents are in the game without agents you are just not getting the best value out of eve.

Typically if you go through the career path you can find 5 agents all in the same station that just shower you with free gifts each time you complete a mission.

really im just raging because i am an idiot moran. was mining in a Prophecy sending ore back with my transport alt and someone in a frigate came and popped my virtually empty can. I had a couple lasers on my ship and thought id see if i could take him or tank him.

yeah, i was wrong

and yes, i know thats not suicide ganking but whatever

accounts still cancelled, though. i have no desire to ****ing WORK in a game for days and only be able to 'play' it for a few seconds at a time and WORK for a few mor days to make up for the losses in that few seconds of 'playing'

back to X3:TC for me


I suppose you could go play WoW and work for 85 levels, then work for reputation, then work for gold, work for enchantments, work for professions, word for gear so that you can work for more gear and then work to kill bosses in a gear grinding raid so that you're prepared for the next expansion that will allow you to work for more gear, more professions, more reputation and even more gear.

TL;DR You just weren't meant for MMOs

In all honesty, you are doing it wrong. You could spend your time more efficiently to make isk. But that is besides the point. It sounds like you are risk adverse, and if you don't like risk you are not going to like this game.

actually ive had my accounts for over two years now yet for whatever reason every now and then Ill resub for a month, realize just how much WORK eve is, cancel accounts and go play something fun and then come back again for more boredom thinking there is going to be something new, or at least a readable UI. jokes on me though

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

This game is not for you, it requires a higher caliber of player. You're better suited to World of Warcraft, Lord of the Rings Online, or Hello Kitty's Adventure Island. Good luck on your future gaming endeavors.

Eve is a tough game, it's how it got popular, give it a few months and it'll be as easy as WoW

And you still haven't learned 1) how basic aggro mechanics works, 2) don't complain about boredom while mining. You're a bit slow, aren't you?

Are you the type of person who tastes coffee or beer once a month in hopes that you'll magically like it this time? Newsflash: It's the same this time around, as well as the next, and lots of people like it this way. It's your problem that you don't like it.

I manage to live a "functional life", play several video games and troll the forums on a daily basis. Guess I'm just that much better than you.

While eve can be boring its the people you meet that keep you coming back and the responsibilitys you aquire over time that make the game.

There is nothing like being the sole scanner in a wh while everyone is off killing someone and if you make a mistake 3 months work of over 20 people will just go away to keep you in the game and on your toes.

If you are not willing to dedicate the time EVE is not your game.

lol who actually mines

I do. And Ice at that.

But then again, I also drink a lot. :)
(Ice is really hard core boring.)

Or, other times, I leave the Mackinaw in the hanger and we go out with a group of Hulks, an Orca and a hauler to load up on minerals to support our Corp's industrial activities. Hmmm, a fair amount of drinking tends to happen there, also, but there are more people to chat with.

Key point, though, is that if you're only doing one thing for a week solid, then yeah, you're not doing it right.
