Small, medium or large? 11 days sound like you're waiting for t2 mediums. A great weapon

Anyone got any tips for a newbie? I am really interested in this game, and tried to start playing a few months ago, but quickly got overwhelmed and quit after my free month was up, but I'm looking to start a new character and try again. I see alot of people who have only been playing for a few months. Any tips on races, ships, or steps to take in the early game to keep from getting overwhelmed?

the biggest thing to realize is that the game is only as fun as you make it.

its a sandbox so you gotta go out and find stuff to do on your own. joining a decent corp helps but that can be hard.

dont train for mining if you want to have fun. train combat skills and then once you can run L4s and are making a decent income you can do whatever.

it also depends if you want to go live in empire, lolsec, or 0.0

also all the races are good so there is no worries about that. just make sure you train learning skills early and get a decent ship. also bigger isn't always better. the smaller the ship usually the more fun it is to fly

The biggest thing that made me stop playing this game is how horrible isk grinding is. Level 4s/ratting in null is mind numbingly boring. I really enjoyed pvping but i just cant stand the grind.

I was living down in Null with the NC before I quit playing, and had just finished training up for a gaurdian. Id like to get back into it but I just dread the ratting.

yea ratting is slightly better than level 4s only becuase you actually have to semi pay attention to local.

However, you also have to deal with your alliance retards. Many a time id hop into a system and see one other person, ask if they ratting, wait a few minutes with no response. So i commence ratting, then meet them in a belt and they rage at me for "stealing their spawns".

Yea you just kinda have to make ratting fun. Ill go ratting with some corpmates and its always pretty fun. Plus there is the fun of getting faction stuff which is always nice.

To the person starting off new, dont worry if you dont know everything in the game. like real life you wont know everything about every profession and youll find what you like. Maybe you are caldari and really like using missiles and shields then its not huge if you dont completely understand armor and projectiles.

The best way to make ratting fun is to do exploration. Better loot and isk unless you are ratting in a -1 trusec system. All you need is a tank and a logistics ship and then some DPS.

There are tons of sites with guides on all the various exploration sites you can find out there.

Also if you make a new character, tell us know your name so we can help you out

when in doubt, right click- show info.

no race is better than the other, your only limited by what skills you want to train. the tutorial missions are a pretty good way to get started, they pay more than other missions of the same rank and afterwards start you on the first mission arc, its a good way to get some isk and learn how stuff works.

looks like a couple Ragnaroks in there too.


So, I managed to lose my scanship the other night- wasn't paying attention when someone warped out of their mission and my mouse wasn't working quite right (QuietMouse mice are really horrible for Eve apparently.)


On the other hand, now all I need is someone to aggress me so that I can gank them with my Panther

Welp I resubscribed and re-rolled a new char although I'm not quite sure how I feel about that one :|

Went from 5mill sp to 90,000 sp Anyways the new IGN is Nihilumm. I'm not going to be on much untill I can fully fit a Rifter with T2's to get my Yarr career underway but I have other games to play until then so why not?
