  • EVE: Online

    Anyone else play this game? I just started out on a trial basis, and I have to say I'm really starting to love it!



    Flying a spaceship around is fun, and the combat seems to have a pretty good room for tactical choices!

    DoD just loves the loud bangs and colorful, uh, colors.

    Always meant to try it out...
    “To discriminate against a thoroughly upright citizen because he belongs to some particular church, or because, like Abraham Lincoln, he has not avowed his allegiance to any church, is an outrage against that liberty of conscience which is one of the foundations of American life.”

      No time like the present, hey?



      I've always wanted to since I read a story about Eve online in PC Gamer about a massive in game heist!

        I'd love to play - if I had the time.

        It's just the sort of thing I could see taking over my life.

          I also played the trial early last year, and it was much fun. The visuals and music are fraking awesome! Loved gliding through space, the combat was very well done, and the ship selection, and everything you can put in / on them, was well worth it. Pilot training got to taking a huge amount of time as you moved up the skill tree, but I never got very far there. I've been keeping up with the game's advancements since then, and from what I've seen and heard, the whole thing has improved much. Maybe it's time for another trial run?

            As if you don't already own some form of space ship.



            But the cool thing about the skills is that they can level up even after you log out.

            So all you need to do is set yourself to learn the highest level skill level before going to bed and you're in!

            But it takes sooooo long, DoD!

              I played it for about a year and loved it, the combat is very tactical the main problem is like all MMORPG's it's a time sink, to get the most out of the game forget playing anything else.

              Also even though you don't have the XP grind you get in most games of it's ilk you have the ISK grin (Money) that's just as dull

                I've been playing a few days (3?) and I already have 3 million!

                But then I realize that in reality, that isn't that much money. . .



                But still, we loves it!

                  I have been playing for a couple of months and find it enjoyably differrent from the other MMPOGs I have played. One little tip. Invest in the first few levels of the basic social skills if you are going to solo for a while. It makes everyone much friendlier and you get much better missions.

                  Social
                  Connections
                  Diplomacy
                  Criminal connections
                  Fast talk

                  Now when I go to the starmap and slect find agents the whole map lights up green.

                    I played EVE off and on for over two years. One thing you want to be sure to do is spend your early time training the Learning skills. They will greatly speed up your higher level training...cutting entire weeks off the time it takes to train specialist skills.

                    Also, if you are really into it use EVEMon. It's a little desktop program that helps you manage your training offline. I loved it, it helps a bunch.

                        I might have to give this one a try. Now i was under the impression that EVE is a pvp only type game, is that true?

                          Not for me: I've been fighting NPC pirates for the last few days.

                          NPC space pirates!

                          Now if the game only had ninjas. . .

                              The pvp is based on security rating. Each zone has a security rating of 1.0 to 0.0. The higher security zones have more npc cops flying around and its really not worth the trouble for people to pvp or gank. In 0.0 sec its like the wild west.

                              This is a rough estimate of what to expect by security level:

                              1.0 - .7 = really safe
                              .6 - .4 = fairly safe
                              .3 - .1 = dangerous
                              0.0 = absolutely deadly unless the other player you meet is one of your alliance or corporation members.

                              Also, Corporations and Alliances can "control" territory in the game. So if you head into a zone they control and take resources like minerals and such they can, and will, shoot you on sight. But that is usually in .3 to 0.0 sec systems. Be sure to insure all your ships. It's worth it and makes the pvp pretty painless.

                              Overall, EVE is a great game and it's really a blast to go into 0.0 sec space with an alliance and do huge fleet battles with 100 - 200 ships blasting away. But, get your skills up first
