WARNING: This thread mentions other mmo games I've played and in no way do I wish to insult or anger any of such player base.
I am not a EVE user atm. I have never played EVE but i have some questions.
I think it would be wise for me to explain who I am, where I came from and what I am looking for. I recently quit FFXI, I was a NA 75 DRK/37THF/37NIN/37WAR/25BRD. I mention ffxi because for me to find a new home I will ask the community questions about certain things I simply do not want to deal with.
Q1. in ffxi i use to have to spend weeks sometimes months to farm enough money for my gear. In the end this is something that burnt me out. Its important that I get into a new mmo that I can earn my keep but IM not looking for a farming time sink. (for example i had to spend a month farming to earn my body armor in ffxi...)
Q2. Community in game looks very mature. I'm very interested in EVE because of its higher age player base (I am 26 b/w). How is the single world concept working out for you guys?
Q3. Can I solo in EVE? can I login earn some money kill some ships and logoff? can i really progress on my own. I dont want to depend on people... I want to progress when i want to.(have fun w/o giving my life away) In ffxi i use to have to camp HNMS (big named mobs) and this would take 6-10 hours (most of the time loose pull to botters/cheaters and still have to record ToD etc). EVE is a player driven story which i like but do you have to camp stuff?
Q4. is there such a thing as a broken class/job in EVE? in ffxi i was a broken melee... this maybe a MMO flaw but i have to ask this question.
Q5. is there cheating? I am a pureist and when i see people taking short cuts it makes me feel like im wasteing my time (people who know will understand).
Q6. in Earth and Beyond I could go watch an anime while I build levels and such. I liked that, are certain mindless tasks automated? I've read about minning but I am rather ignorant on the topic and just curious, what is a mining drone? (now I sound like a tard)
Q7. final question, i cant find it anywhere on the boards lol. is there a Cock Pit view? i played Earth and Beyond for a little (pc couldnt run it so i kinda was forced to leave.) and i really liked the cock pit view (also in old WC games)..
Thats about it. I am very into the sci-fi theme and last thing i wana do is jump into another tolken/fantasy based game. I do not have the pc ready but once i do i will be coming to a new mmo and EVE is at the top of my short list. I want to thank everyone for reading this and have a great day ^^
