If anyone here is looking to get into this game, Eve Online has recently increased the monthly allowable 21-day trial invites per existing account from 3 to 10. Being invited by an existing player gives you one week extra on your free trial time. Also, the person who invited you will get a month of play time free if the invitee upgrades to a paid account. Trial time is added to the time you buy. If anyone is interested in trying the game out I can send you an invite. If you eventually want to keep playing I'll split the in-game cost of a PLEX (30 day time card purchased with in game currency) with you. Currently a PLEX cost nearly 370 million ISK. There is no pressure on my part to keep playing if you don't like the game, however I'll only send you ISK if you extend your trial to a paid account. So full disclosure: If you continue to play on the account you received the invite on I will save half the cost of a months play time and you get 21 day free trial + 30 day paid time +185 million ISK to start you out, which is quite a lot for a new player. I want to highlight the fact that you do not need to be invited to play the game. You can download the client without an invite and play free for 14 days. Being invited gives you a 21 day free trial. The game is not for everyone, but I hope to see more people playing.
