EVE.

Post by viper » Thu Jan 04, 2007 5:10 pm

Just for those interested in playing EVE, there's a 14 day trial going on @ www.eve-online.com

Incase you can't see (duh) click the 'TRY NOW' text. I'm only on there running a small corp with a friend for a little cashpot and to see how it works. If anyone is interested, we can start a YO corp :)

Oh and dont worry about what server you play on. Unlike world of crapcraft, EVE uses one massive server for the entire world (in both senses). Well, technically, it uses nodes around the world all linked to give the effect of one single server (called Singularity).

My in game name is 'Supermop'

I am GOD of this forum. I created it and saw that it was good. I will quash princess if she says it is bad, with my mighty Thorax cruiser and railgun barrage.

Just a quick correction here, Its a massive cluster of servers hosted in one of the data centres in London. Each processor within this massive cluster is called a node.

Anyone wanting to try this out and wants a hand learning the ropes I'll be happy to help (same in-game name as forum name).

I played EVE for like a half year and I already got bored before my 50 days account expired. It's a game where you need to be present most of the time, otherwise you're pretty much fucked. And getting a better ship is one of the most annoying things. I only had 2 ships as far as I remember. A Frig and a destroyer.

I think I might start playing it again in a few years when I can afford it.

@Er4z0r
never ever ask princess about EVE :D
she might tell you someday that it is "EVIL!!" :D

Is there anyway of starting the trial again with a new character? My trial ended before I could even finish the tutorial. :x

I would assume you would have to reinstall it with another trial key?

I've started a Minimataar (that how you spell it?) character with an emphasis on engineering and stuff like that. Found the game immensely time-consuming and over complicated. I'm sure it's fantastic once you get into it put with 100,000 ISK after the first day I'm hardly going places. I also can't find the rogues drones I'm supposed to kill in the third mission. Ah well. Sorry guys but it's not for me.

Key sent.

Sorry to hear morph. It does require a fair bit of time if you want to earn big isk (unless you get really lucky with the loot from missions). I would give you some iskies to get you on your feet but CCP put restrictions on trial accounts to stop chinese farmers flooding trial accounts with cash so thier main accounts wouldn't get banned.

I also got an inactive eve char, somewhere near 12mil too. I just occasionally activate it to check out the new stuff :P
That which does not kill you, hurts like hell.
