Agree, I have been playing for about a year now. 3 of the Player corps I have joined have been full with really good people.
If you are feeling lonely and you want to learn PvP either go to Faction Warfare, or a training Corp like Eve University or Agony Unleashed.

Damn battleship class pilots... I can't stand em! (Nothing against the pilots, but I REALLY do hate battleship class ships... I'll stick with my CS's)

As for the Caracal loss, sounds like you need to find a new station.

Which CS do you fly Jared? My favourite is the Astarte.

All of them, but my 11.55 Mil Leadership SP char flies Amarr / Gallente. My Minnie / Caldari pilot isn't quite as skilled in the ways of leadership.

Looks like I'm a hypocrit to my own rules! Just bought a Widow a couple days back after the fuel bay changes... We'll see if they end up being worthwhile. If not, I'll sell it and put the funds towards a Strat-Cruiser.

Thread bump.

I just got started playing EVE on Sunday - have only played it for about 2-3 hour so far (however as soon as the API is back online, I should be able to manage skill training from my iPod touch), and I'm still playing the career agent missions. Still find the prospect of this game completely overwhelming - especially when I've only earned around 400k ISK and you guys are on about ships worth billions! . It does seem a lot easier to get into, much better than the last time I tried to get into it...

I have no idea what I'm going to get into yet, I haven't really found my "playing style" - the thought of going into mining/production sounds really monotonous, but PvP sounds very costly... We shall see, I guess. I've only done two of the missions from each career agent, so it's still very early days...

Character name is ByronC, if anyone wants to say hi to an extreme noob! (not very original, I know, but I forgot that your account name doesn't translate into your character's name, and couldn't think of anything better!)


EDIT: OK, so maybe I misread the description for Capsuleer (the iPod touch/iPhone app) - it monitors your character and skill training... Looks useful either way...

Widows are evil. I just bought a manticore to do some low-sec bs popping. See how you like my 0.1 lock and torpedo launch :LD, also smartbombing has become very funny, sit waiting at gates, realise a wt blob has just warped in, orbit their carrier at 500m uncloak, drop the bomb, activate mwd and cloak, pop the bomb at your desire as you watch the carrier flail about trying to align.

Killmails have never been more satisfying when you realise your 20mil ship just eviscerated 500million, i can assure you

Yeah the only way to change skill training is from in game.

An expansion or two ago they added the ability for you to queue up to 24h worth of training (well you can do more, the last skill in the queue must start within 24h of the current time but it can be a 30day skill if you want). It's incredibly useful, especially for when you're busy at work but want to get a load of short skills done, no need to hang around the computer any more.

I can already see this game destroying my free time.

What's everyone's preferred method of payment? I was going to just hand over my debit card details, but I've read that eve time cards are better value for money.

Heheh, free time. Yah it'll eat it up until you're at the point where you're just waiting for skills to finish and have little else to do until then.

As for payment, I pay by card and only touch the PLEXes when I need a quick influx of ISK, though once I get back into 0.0 I should be able to just buy the PLEXes off the market whenever I want and stop using my credit card.

Hey guys, I need a bit of help...
40 min ago I purchased Eve through Steam for 15, payed through paypal. As usual I got an email from paypal informing me of the successful transaction.
Shouldn't the download start right now? The game isn't showing anywhere, neither under "Licenses and subscriptions" nor under the "Not installed" tab in games. The game remained in my shopping card.
Does Eve work differently from other games you purchase through Steam?


Download started 2 min ago. Never had this issue before - maybe it's due to the UT3 event. Download speeds are rather crippled as well.

Oh, would anybody mind giving me a little head up about what class to play etc? I thoroughly enjoyed the demo half a year ago, but don't like the looks of the Caldari.

There are no classes, I believe the way it works now is every race is created equally, everyone starts with the same stats and skills (well, gallente start with gallente frigate skills, caldari start with caldari, etc.). So just pick the race you think looks the coolest, all the rest is just there for roleplaying purposes now if you're into that kind of thing.
