Kali Alert to those considering subscribing

Kali is going to bring a big change to the new players of EVE.

If you start now, people who start after Kali may already be ahead of you from day one, or at least already caught up.  Therefore, it inadvisable to start a new account for the next two months, or until Kali is released.

According to current screening on the test server, new characters are starting the game with as much as a month of free training.  Over 800k sp generally.

Prospector

    Its of little consequence.

     

    You can start a character now and get to know the game, then if it turns out that in two months starting a new one will make you feel better you simply start a ne one and get all the benefits just like every other player starting then.

    btw, 800K skillpoints is trained in a month. Kali is in two.

    hm lol as many knows est time in ccp world can be from 3 month to 7 month.

    However making a char in eve and how many skillpoints he/she have at the initial start is basicly diff how and what type you do the char in " custom made option"

    Uhm... as character creation currently exists, you can start the game with Gunnery V (as a Khanid or the Gallente Asian Bloodline) or with Frigates IV of your race. Gunnery V starts you off with about 800k SP.

    just to say that you can earn 1million SP per month with the right atributes so its probably best you start now rather than wait 2 months for a 800k sp guy.

    Gunnery V is just 256k. Total you will end up with maybe 3-400k at most current.
    If you looked at those screens you would have seen that you can with this change start out with not only Gunnery V but also racial small guns V, rapid firing IV, spaceship command IV and more.

    Just remember that it's the TEST server... it's entirely possible that starter characters there right now are 'enhanced' purely to aid in testing.

    I don't think so. Eventually they will have start giving people more SP to compete. Yeah, SP doesn't mean jack but newbies think it does. I think it's entirely possible for them to do this.

    You currently have 18 skills and 806,605 skill points

    Made that on sisi about an hour ago. 

    If you're going to srat playing EVE subscribe now!  The game is not about skill points.  It's about the aquisition of assets.

    My character is about 2 years old now and has over 34M skill points, so, if you train the right attributes, you gain much more than 1M SP's/month. Add the fact that I wasted alot of time training somewhat useless skills that my chracter is absolutely horrible at learning (4 charisma base isn't great for getting social and leadership skillls) and you can probably get 2M sp's/month when training your predominant skills when factoring in learning skills and implants.

    Furthermore, CCP has said nothing on any of their Dev Blogs to further enhancing the starting attributes of their player races, so I would expect this to be a test-server gimic to try and attract more people to purchase the product.

    NNNOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! That's one less option when wasting noobs in empire wars now :( Oh well I'll just have to catch them when they decloak on the other side, or hope they're on autopilot and warp to 15km MUAH HAH HAH!

    *shakes fist at empire gate camper*

    You guys took my first BC from me... Then I learnt the importance of small ships.

    Well 0km is just alittle bit of overkill, if anything it should be 5k's still takes a while forlarge ships - but the smaller ones now have a chance to survive. Remember, this still allows for the age old warpdisruptor to be placed 10-15ks off the  gate. and the nice NBS or IRS fleets to stop any traffic moving through ^_^

    These seem to be tests to stop people continually complaining on the boards that they are not "trying" to fixthe empire carebear problems that have been in the game for reasons since they original creation of the game - to move people away from empire space and lazy lifestyles. To makepeople compete in 0.0. It just seems that Kali- renamed Revalations is trying to refzrm this sothat "secure" space is larger, futher more ruining the original meaning ofthe game.

    I'll pu it this way, your out there doing your "mission" for your "agents" barely scrapping 1mil an our to maybe 10 if you are very lucky. Whilst I'm sitting 4 jumps from a highly fought over gate toaccess 0.0 (three groups fight for it - an NBS (not blue shoot), an IRS (if red shoot) and a mercenary group in otherwords a second NBS. I live in 90% peaceful system and rat 1.1 and 1.25 mil BS  with comfort. If the empire secure space is increased (Cald ary mainly) the 0.0 entrance system will change from the one 5 jumpsfrom me, and continually creep closer, forcing myself to move awayfrom the highly desired 1-3 systems from the 0.0 entrance systems.

    Thisis all to make"carebears" happy, and to ruin the situation that is the reward of 0.0 space. It is easyto get out here, you don't have to be in a large Alliance, or even in a largecorporation, you can moveout here very easy. Just make friends with everyone you meet. find out who has soveriegnty etc and forge your own  path. Even cause your own  acceptence into a corporation from helping them. Theres alot one can do to make money without having to stay in empire, just ccp is crashing to help the little carebears that complain that they are getting a raw deal because they cant look after themselves from dieing at basic gate camps, in 0.4 systems.

    You guys are over reacting the only thing it does is elimiates long waits on doicking and jumped. You can still catch people on the other side. Aside from that it is great, I was able to do 37 jumps in 30 minutes on a test server, auto pilot still lands 15 km away though. I think it is great way to cut down on wait time that usually comes with travel. Aside from that it also means that people will now have no need for 90% BMs. No BMs = a lot less lag.

    The only thing that i dont like about that change though is the change to 0.0. I cant count how many times i've been chasing someone and they didnt have instas, so i would be able to catch up and ultimately defeat them. But it will combat the 32587497232 bookmark per person problem.

    Yeah I see that problem comming as well, but that means that you better catch them on the other side or pass the word down so people can catch him down the pipe. This problem will be solved w/ Kali 2 when they will allow alliances that hold sovrenty to place turrets and other devices near the gates.

    Basically the patch will be online tomorrow but it could be a few days to a couple of weeks before its stabalised as its a very majour expansion. One of the things is eve is being changed from 32 bit to 64 bit programming.

  • What matters to me is, Are the system requirements to play the game going to stay the same. I have a 2 year old computer with an old PCI bus Nvidia 5500 in it. I am unable to get another one anytime soon. So am I screwed?

    No, you'll be fine, even when they change the graphics engine, they are still leaving the old one so you should be just fine. On another positive note it seems to run smoother in Revelations.

    Oh, and any character that was created before the xpac and has less than 800k sp will be brought up to 800k sp.
