Hey guys, I'm an older player that's looking to return. Based on how I knew the game before and how it is now, I have some questions. Any input would really help me out.
I hear the learning skills have been taken out of the game? Is there any truth to this? Also, what does that mean for someone who would be starting from scratch like myself?
I found that I tried mining and it made me want to cut myself out of boredom. I had a lot more fun with mission running, but found they weren't exactly the most profitable things in the universe (level 1s and 2s). One of my biggest frustrations was that some missions would take FOREVER. Like me in a cruiser taking pot shots at stupid little frigates I couldn't track properly or catch up to. Any tips on alleviating this issue?
My biggest difficulty (and probably the EVE killer for me at the time) was that I find the world a little overwhelming, I don't really know how to get into a corp that's doing what I'm interested in (Primarily PvE with PvP when appropriate). I'm not a casual gamer nor am I a "hard core" gamer. I find it a little annoying scheduling myself around EVE because my shifts are all over the place. I don't want to be a flake as usually when I join a "guild" I'm the type of loyal "stay until it dies" sort of member. I just need a corp that's accepting of my "play when I can" approach.
Does anyone have any useful links that I can use to really start off with a solid foundation and short to medium term goal-set? Basically I want to strive for level 3-4 missions ASAP and then go from there. It seems to make sense to me that level 4s are good income, and income is essential to a foundation for a structure of not caring too much about whatever you're flying (pvp). I honestly don't even know how agents and reputation works all that well, I have the feeling that when I was agent grinding I was either grinding the wrong one... or something. It felt awkward.
This one is a little more vague but I would appreciate any other form of input you have to offer (unless it's "don't play EVE" lol). The more the better
Thanks in advance! o7
