    Rock solid for me, but tbh I dont probe (well in game, :p).

    Some one ask Wodgah about loosing his Tengu out in 0.0, :D

    We just started to burn Tenal, strat ops yawn. And as always i'll be in fleet for three hours shooting structures and then when I decide to take a break, we get fights!

    A fellow RvBer I'm guessing?
    Unfortunately I'm not resubbing for another 2 months due to important exams throughout most of June.
    Which side are you?

    Gallente main running about wormhole space (C5 living = iskies) Caldari alt for silly pvp solo roams (extreme negative killboard but hilarious all the same) and a minmatar alt who flies hulks/orcas/noctis/whatever utility ship i refuse to train my pvp characters into.

    I've just started on Eve. Am going for mining at the moment, and am enjoying it. Feels nice to have a slower paced game.

    Vipers, my advice would be to pretty much ignore the tutorial missions unless you have to, they seemed terrible to me

    Did you get one yet? I'll send one and can even get you into my alliance and into our wormhole. You'll make tons of ingame cash :)

    Hey guys. I've been off EVE for a long while now due to not being able to find that a corp that would trust me with anything, not even joining gangs.. Sort of drove me away a little. Anyway, i'm thinking of giving it another swing around with this new Inferno expansion.

    So if I do return, would anybody be willing to have a Drake/Raven pilot, and actually allow me to do something? :p

    Why don't they trust you?

    I've had the opposite experience. Was given 1m ISK last night (trebling my total) just for applying a little charm.

    Because, and I quote, I'm under 18 therefore not mature enough. I'm 17... -.-

    I just got bored after that and cancelled, but want to come back now ^^

    So level up for a bit in an NPC corp...

    Anyone happen to know what format the retail game time takes? GTC? With it being 66% off on steam, I was wondering if it was possible to manipulate that - like a secondary (trial) character selling the GTC to your primary character?

    To those who are looking for corps or cash or gangs or all of the above. PM me, or contact "Tigernos O'Cuinn" ingame.

    We have a feeder corp to introduce you to life in a C5 wormhole and the pvp/pve opportunities therein. Sleeper loot sells for a huge amount and we comfortably make 100-200m isk (each, in a 20-40 man gang depends on numbers online) a day running a SINGLE site. If more sites spawn in our wormhole and we run more sites then you can walk away with some hefty wallet flashes.

    We raid other wormholes, null, low and whatever else we feel like depending on the exits we get on the day.

    EvE is one of the worst games I've ever played. It's looks amazing and fun with great complexity, but it's just "CoD is SPACE" with more pretension.


    Edit: Honestly being a CEO was what made me hate EvE. And every single player. All the trailers for EvE show massive tense fights and everyone talks about big plans and wars, but 99.999999999% of the time it's utterly onesided fights and 20 on 1 ganks. Honestly hearing my corp brag after ganking a gunless Mining Barge was one of the bigger blows to my faith in humanity. I've played across several accounts over 6-7 years I've been CEO of mining corps mercs Null and High corp wars and frankly I encountered about 40-50 people in that entire time with anything resembling skill or planning or the power to actually think. The rest were the worst companion of that 12 year old screaming over Xbox Live and the stereotypical hipster. In that entire near decade playing I've seen almost nothing but one sided slaughters with both sides screaming at each other over how Good they are. It was the worst when I was head of Recruitment for a High Sec merc corp and dealing with the massive amount of d*ckery coming from players..


    Little story from when I was at said Merc Corp. Player 1 is mining in a frigate Player 2 comes along and suicide ganks him. Player 1 points out that Player 2 lost more in the gank then he did. Player 2 sets out to troll Player 1 to death and starts tossing out ISK to get people to gank him over and over again.

    90% of the time people wanted to hire us is was for exactly that reason.

    Having played Eve now for nearly 9 years, my experiences are quite different. I have never seen griefing like you have described, not saying it doesnt happen of course.

    I could say I have pretty much done everything with the exception of invention and being a merc.

    I have found that taking breaks here and there have really helped. Also every now and then a roll a new alt or buy one and try something different.

    It's the game that when they finally decide to put the nail in the coffin, I will be at CCP HQ at the picket line! I dont get this feeling about WoW or any other MMo I have played over the years.

    As for your bad experiences being a CEO, I learnt very early that to be an effective CEO you need to have good directors, its these people that do the groundwork, your job is to co-ordinate them rather then doing the tasks yourself. Yes its still a tough job and chances are you will burn out, especially if you have alliance responcibilities but good directors make the time between burnouts longer.

    I stood down from being CEO of my corp for many years after RL changed for me. Unfortunately the guy that took it on didnt have the skills, he did try but it didnt work for him. We wound the corp down and moved into a corp we have had good relations with for the last 8 years. Were enjoying being regular Joes, but I tell you the lure of restarting the band and achieving something as our old corp is one that haunts me on a daily basis. If I didnt have the RL commitments that I have currently, I would do it in a heartbeat.

    It's not griefing. It's the entire point of EvE. I honestly think you've seen and most likely spent the majority of your time doing it, you just don't see it the way I do.
