New MMORPG.com EVE Online Correspondent Andreas Sellin writes this look at keeping your own personal sanity intact when dealing with the hih-risk world of EVE Online.
These days the world we live in seems pretty grim. You may be wondering if there is something better. If so, you should not jump into EVE Online, because that world makes the real world look like the garden of Eden. Smugglers, pirates, bounty hunters, thieves, scammers, mercenaries and suicide gankers are only some of the threats you will encounter in EVE. There is only one way to die in EVE and that is having your escape pod destroyed. That being said, the number of enemies who want to destroy your precious pod are almost infinite. If you are not discouraged and still interested in playing this game that obviously does something right considering the number of players it has, then I will try to give you a few pointers.
The most important part of surviving in EVE is to get some friends. Join a friendly corporation or alliance, there are plenty to choose from so you should be able to find what you are looking for whether you want a corporation run under communistic principles or pure capitalism, one that requires 24/7 commitment or one with no commitment required at all.
