Downloading the free trial now, the 21 day one due to the graciousness of a fellow mmorpg.commer. Have spent most of the morning reading up on the game.
I guess the glaring question I have is ...where is the fun? Many many threads talk about how eve is a sandbox and you can "do anything". Most of those threads then go on to talk about how boring missions are, how boring mining is, how boring high sec space is, and how realistically, you are looking at at least a few weeks to pvp.
So...umm....what ISNT boring?I dont mean this to be a troll, or flame bait..I am genuinely curious where the fun lies. This from someone who has tried the trial twice in the past and quit before it was over because...i was bored.
My goal in eve, with my limited knowledge, as of now is to be a pirate. I am drawn to the "bad guy" side of games generally. Any advice on steps to take early in the game to get away from the terrible beginner missions and staring at rocks stuff they guide you through as quickly as possible?
Long story short...how far into the game do i have to get to not be bored?
