Re: Anyone on here playing Eve Online?

I'm thinking of giving it a go. I picked up a month or something in the steam sale. Yet to give it a try. Looks complex as fuck.

To be fair, the tutorials do explain pretty much everything these days apart from the high-end concepts; whether Kris is capable of paying attention to them is another matter

Re: Anyone on here playing Eve Online?

I would say that the learning curve is as steep or as shallow as you want it to be. The initial tutorials and the Sisters of Eve storyline arc introduce you to the basic concepts of the game and by the time you've completed them (in my case about a month but you can do them as quickly or slowly as you want) you're ready to find a corporation to join.

Yes, at the higher level it is insanely complex. There was a record breaking battle the other day with over 4000 ships. The largest battle there's ever been.
The complexity of controlling and co-ordinating something like that boggles the mind.

So far I've just been pottering along doing the missions, developing my skills and financing my ship buying by mining but I'll be getting involved in some of the faction warfare and other corp activities now.

Let me know if you do and I'll slip you some funds to help get you started.

Re: Anyone on here playing Eve Online?

Stopped playing two or three years ago when our corp joined an alliance and it started to become more like work. I did have a couple of billion and a carrier; theoretically, I still do I suppose. Might have a look at it again, but I won't have the free time until the end of the year.

There are a few on Hexus that play and we did have a small corp. There's massive EvE thread but it's been a lot quieter than it used to be.

Re: Anyone on here playing Eve Online?

Stopped playing a year and abit ago, they ruined highsec war and canflipping etc I'd love to go back to it sometime though was in a rather infamous corporation. Brilliant game for scamming, generally harassing people, stealing others assets, threatening folk with war and bribing them. Ahhhhh I miss Eve.

Its the tears that made the game, I got so many death threats.

I wanted to play it but someone on another forum told me there was no point since I would never be able to get to the same level as the big boys and it was a massive time investment.
