New to eve

HatefullHatefull Member EpicPosts: 2,368

I just tried eve this weekend for the first time.

Giving new meaning to the word massive.  I am impressed and hooked.  This is the game I have been looking for since I satrted gaming.  My only regret is I found it so late.  There are a few things I would change, but over all, man I love it.

Litte tough to get started as a newbie, but a combination of tutorials (do em both) and the help channels, you will be fine.

I am a miner, I like mining, I can start dinner, mine, refine, run back out, eat, I like it.  Perfect amnount of down time for me.  But I may be a bit weird, I don't like games I have to give 100% of my attention to 100% of the time. 

Any way , just had to say something, what a dam cool game.

If you want a new idea, go read an old book.

    Glad your enjoying it. Shiva just around the corner will open up allot of new "minning" activities.

    Also be sure to read the minning guide:

    I'd suggest joining a corp at some point, doesn't have to be huge one - but at least have some seasoned members. A corp takes the rookie chat channel that extra step further. You will get "personalized" service. image And to my surprise they have let me take my time and not pushed me toward a certain area of play, ie. mining, rat-killing, pvp, etc.

    PROS:

    • They've let me use ships that I wouldn't have been able to afford as a noob.
    • They've escorted me to lower security space.
    • They've given me access to loot to fit my ship and ammo to shoot with.
    • I've even had members give me isk . Although, I've had strangers do that also (EVE players are SO nice  - haven't touched pvp yet so hold that thought!).

    CONS:

    • I can't think of any.

    Needless to say, I'm glad I joined a corp.

    So as not to appear biased, I won't include my corp name here.
