    If anyone is actually interested in playing properly, send me an email just saying you want a trial:

    [email protected]

    Theres currently a 21 day free trial but only if a friend invites you to play. (its usually just 14 days).

    The game can be hard to start off, so I can help you out with equipment and any questions you have.

    I played for a long time in a pretty good PvP corp. Definitely not boring, but CCP's urge to rebalance the game (aka make you regret years of training) every 6 months made me quit and sell all my shit. Easiest $1k I ever made.

    People who say its boring probably never left their level 2 agents in highsec to experience the real game of 0.0 empires, politics, and those who just kill everybody ( :wavey: ).

    Boring... wtf is this "you are your ship" bullshit? I am not a ship, I am a person... You should be able to get out and walk around wherever you want, they never should have released it without that mechanic.

    Its a giant player driven orgy of random nothingness with no purpose, no direction, and no story... great if you are studying sociology and human interaction, not so great for a game.

    You can...in March 09 :hs:

    Not sure what you mean by "you are you ship" though. You are a pilot in EVE, but yeah it is quite a big feature that isnt in the game.

    The story of EVE is huge and the economy is the most advanced in any MMO to date. Just by reading up about it will help people decide if its for them or not.

    It takes a while to get into but its worth it imo.

    I've been trying this last month to get into it but just cant get it to grab me.

    I have to admit though once I realised it was a point-and-click for of fligt sim i was kinda turned off. But as a HUGE M.O.O (Master of Orion) fan I though the complexities of the game and combat would grow on me.

    But to be honest, The 'slow' style of combat coupled with the lack of 'cool stuff' made it seem more like a job than any MMO I've tried to date.

    It looks gorgeous though, but it badly needs external ship mobs. If I was to stay playing for a year or so I've want my pimped out pirate interceptor being able to be recognized the moment I was seen :)

    i've subbed and quit numerous times.

    I REALLY want to like it because of the complexity of it and the theme in general but honestly everytime I attempt pvp it goes like this.

    1. enter new system
    2. get targeted by eleventy players
    3. spam local chat with "thanks for the free trip to where i'm heading anyways".

    orrrr

    1. enter new system
    2. leave system and enter new system
    3. get targeted by eleventy players
    4. spam local chat with "thanks for the free trip to where i'm heading anyways".

    Or my personal favorite was playing more with ship fitter programs and skill training planners than actually doing any of that ingame.

    I was fairly successful isk wise though everytime i quit i'd always have over a billion in the wallet.

    If you see a blob in the middle of your travels, all you have to do is warp away. Always have a bookmark location for a quick getaway. If you react within a couple of seconds of seeing a blob then you will ALWAYS get away.

    Its all about strategy with PvP. PvP takes forever to skillfully master but this is just one aspect of the game...

    Fuck, you're clever. I get 30 days time if someone actually decides to become a subscriber.

    You can always do the 14 day trial if you're that pathetic though :hs:
