madstork91 said:I played it for about 2 months... The game was quite boring to me.
The days I played bassically consisted of me mining, upgrading my ship, mining some more, upgrading my ship some more, making a few cargo runs across systems... only to mine more and upgrade my ship. Oh and on my last day... I was mining in my most expensive ship only to be blown to smitheriens by a pirate who then told me "tough luck" and salvaged everything. I was left to return to where my shuttle was parked. Kinda sucked...
Eve can be an incredibly time consuming hassle to 'get to x'. There are players in the game that have been there for years and have the skills and abiity to well...be gods. They dominate huge sectors of space, bringn people trembling to their knees, build stations, economic empires and even make a decent supplemental income on the external market. But if you joing the game today and want to be a god tomorrow, you're going to hate EVE.
Eve is not an autotargeting game. In PVP you are doing anything but autotargeting if you want to stay alive. Most of the better fighters/pirates/anti-pirates have a knack for mathematics and understand the mechanics of tranversal effects on targeting, and are making speed, distance, opponent strength calculations in their head on the fly and adjusting ammo, guns and tactics continuously.
If you try eve....pay your dues...train your learning skills up off the bat, attach yourself as soon as you can to a corp as a fighter if that is what you want and don't get out of frigate size (basic to elite) maybe....ever. Elite frigates can take down cruisers and battleships if they know how to fly and have real pilots. You don't get there over night, you don't get there with a chip on your shoulder, and you don't get there alone.
The best part of Eve is pvp fleet battles. Specializing in tackling, scrambling, ganking, projecting, pirating etc....can make your time in eve a bit of poetry.
We have four accounts and 12 characters among us. But fair warning. You really can't support more than one character for a very long time. It takes too much time to train and you have to keep your training going 24/7, one character at a time. Also do not under any circumstances create your own corporation as soon as you have the minimum skills and isk. It takes a community to grow a good fighter.
