Well I'll be....

How did this game escape my notice!

I've just been on a SWG trial and found it pretty boring, all that grinding and very clique'y (difficult to get into anyone's group), so I thought I'd check out what other MMORPG's there are....

found this website and it was talking about EVE.... never heard of it.... then I discover it is an MMORPG version of Elite!! I played the original Elite years ago;no not the more recent PC Frontier version, I mean the original 1984 BBC B version - ("know the ECM unit by its copper top!")

I'm running through the trial right now.... this has to be the biggest tutorial ever created! I have a strong suspicion that I'll end up subscribing (if I think my wife will forgive me!)

Keep an eye out for Radon9 - His Elite status might be old, but it was truely earned! :)

    Do it like I did... get her to play the game - though it has disadvantages too
    "no you cook ..... no you.,... no you.... no you ... I have to bring my bs to secure space ... you go........ no but I have to...... etc etc"

    Welcome to Tranquility, and have fun.

    I said the same thing when I found this game.  I was like "where the heck did this come from?" So I tried it because I was looking for a different style of game, but I only "inteded" to do the trial, because I figured it'd be like most MMO's out there.  The typical fun for a while, blah blah.  And now I'm hooked to it.  I wish they would have been able to market it in the US, because I know for a fact the number of users would be soooo much higher, but then again, would I want that many people playing the game?  I enjoy how loving of the game the community is.  It's definitely a game that is going to be around long after the others get boring.

    I live to fight, and fight to live.

    I thought it was going to be like space in SWG. Luckily, I got it anyway and I'm gald to see that it's nothing like that (it's actually fun).

    Yeah. Eve is great. I've never known such a rewarding MMO game to date.
