OP  4/25/09 2:36:38 PM#1

You know I am so sick of hearing how a new player in EVE is worthless. Compared to EVERY other game on the planet a new character in EVE is a force to be feared. First we start with the other games as an example..

Using Lotro and WoW as examples can anyone tell me if it is possible in ANY WAY for a 5th level fighter to defeat a 50th level fighter? I mean any way at all. Think about it, the 5th level fighter cannot even hit a 50th level fighter much less defeat him.

Now in EVE, can a 30 day old character, for that matter a 10 day old character in ANY way defeat a 4 year old character? Yes they can. Is it easy, well no but it shouldn't be either. However there is the chance to actually do it. So if a noob character in EVE can defeat a very experiened player in EVE please tell me how in EVE the noob is useless and the same is not said about the other games?

I mentioned the myth of the noob being debunked and today I did it in my own way. EVE is just about who you can kill, it is also about can you contribute. A lot of new players fel like they have nothing to offer and so they doi not join a corp until they have more experience.

Kletus Snow is a new account I setup, he is today 4 days old. Yet today he took part in a mining operation in 0.0 space. Surrounded by characters with MUCH higher skill point totals Kletus was still a linch pin in the operation providing the hauling needed for the operation. In around 2.5 hours he alone hauled over 300K m3 of raw ore from the asteroid field and back to the base for refining.

Yeah I can hear the yells and laughs now, he hauled. Well folks news flash to a corporation or alliance on a mining operation the hauler is just as important as ANY other pilot in the op, and they relied on and had their needs met by a FOUR DAY old character.

I hear people saying all the time how tough EVE is on new pilots, how you cannot be useful in the game until you have played for months. I call BS on the lot. EVE is a game that is what you make of it. If you have imagination, drive, goals and motivation the game is amazing from day one. The game is not tough of noobs, it is tough on lazy players that want the game to hold their hand and allow them a fast route to instant success with no risk of lose.

I will be keeping a log BTW of Kletus for everyone to follow; http://snoejob.wordpress.com In it I will show how the game can be fun and rewarding by being not much else but a hauler pilot.

BTW if you want to flame my position in this post feel free, I have come to a simple realization, flames no matter how big still cannot change the facts or truth!

thats most of my Play time. I love it.

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude; greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

I think you are missing the point though.  This works for people who know how to play the game, who have played for years. That isn't a new player. A new player is a person who enters Eve and just gets lost.  The game has a huge learning curve and unless they have someone helping them along it will take them a while to get to the point where they become useful.  I imagine a truely new player would take longer  to get to 0.0 and haul

the way we annoy you with "we cant beat xx " you annoy us even more "yes you can " giving 0 proofs or telling how

frigate is fast  , wow, that sure advice that will make me win , none of you posted any vids of 3 days account beating half year account , or anything

 

there is many ways i can troll your 5 lvl comparison to wow and lotro, first of if 10-30 days char, is worth 5 lvl , ,so in that comparison i can say i need over year to match expierenced eve players,

tho i prefer this variant.. comparing eve 10-30 days play time, to 1-2 hours 5 lvl, in both wow and lotro, ( ok 3 hours if you are extremely slow , ok ill give you 4 hours if you playing mmorpg for first time ever, and using pc for second time in life ) it wont take longer than that to reach lvl 5 in any of those games,

 

the whole fact that you oldschoolers compare your alts in already established corps, and considering you already know what and where to do is nonsense at highest lvl

 

first off how many low lvl organized corps there are? probably not many , you either need some massive unorganized corp, which would  do some half arsed pvp , or dunno

 

its same , if you start playing wow for example  ( at which i am good, but not playing anymore ) then you tell me, oh getting from 1 to 80 takes too long, or that that 70-80 takes too long.. and ill say that i did it in 3 days if not less, and then i can probably do it again in 2 days, cuz everything i know is faster, everything you dont is slowe, comparing yours 30 days old char, might mean 60 days for someone other ) , you could come saying  outfitting is fast and easy, sure you know where or why, or have corp that helps you ) you could probably come up with such idea as wow raiding is hard, and i would die laughting at you, cuz its so easy for me

 

this whole comparison without giving any proof is BS 

 

all you guys keep saying  "it can be done "

No laughing ro flaming from me. I'm glad you are showing that a new player can contribute in a meaningful way to a corp in 0.0 space. Sure it's hauling but it needs to be done and it's very easy for a new player to get into an industrial ship with some cargo expanders and they're good to go.

OP  4/25/09 3:06:38 PM#7

The alt in an already established corp argument is bunk since it is not all that hard to find a corp to be a part of. Hell most corps really badly want pilots. New pilots need to just pick one that fits them.

The arguement about the learning curve is the only one that holds the test of time, EVE does have a steep learning curve. The reason for this is the game does not hold your hand. EVE requires you to think, to plan and then execute, not stumble and bumble along. EVE has a real consequence when you goof so learning means something. I also agree you need to find a freind to help, again this is not nearly as hard as most people make it out to be. There are some HUGE groups DEDICATED to helping new pilots. Plus tons of smaller corps that will take a new pilot in and help him find his way.

True you cannot go it alone like in other games but then again these games are about playing with other people.

[quote]if you start playing wow for example ( at which i am good, but not playing anymore ) then you tell me, oh getting from 1 to 80 takes too long, or that that 70-80 takes too long.. and ill say that i did it in 3 days if not less, and then i can probably do it again in 2 days, cuz everything i know is faster,[/quote]

THIS to me is the real telling factor. The ability of a player to reach higher levels faster than those that have striven for them. Other games do not reward paitence and planning just jump in and give me a big sword.

BTW the whole attempt to change the lvel vs level arguement fails, becuase it is POSSIBLE for a day one starting character in EVE to take out a 5  year old character, show me how that id done in WoW or LOTRO? Level based systems create a strata that does not exist within a skill based system. But I tell you what find me a 25th level anything and put him against a 50th level anything, I will bet real money he cannot even hit the level 50 much less have any possibility of winning.

Finally to the guy who thought hauling found fun, not. The point I am making is that at 4 days old I am a major part of an existing 0.0 operation, not a minor flunky. Even beginning characters can contribute from the very start if they have a desire to do so. Hell in 4 days you can make a decent tackler pilot which would be a boon for PvP operations. How about a basic EW pilot, a Crucifier needs little time to train and yet chan change the course of a battle, with only a day or toos worth of training.

As far as your assertion that we only say it can be done, sorry I AM DOING IT! Not can but is being is what I am saying.

What the hell are you even talking about here ?

there is many ways i can troll your 5 lvl comparison to wow and lotro, first of if 10-30 days char, is worth 5 lvl , ,so in that comparison i can say i need over year to match expierenced eve players,

Again what the hell are you saying ?

 Huh ??

the whole fact that you oldschoolers compare your alts in already established corps, and considering you already know what and where to do is nonsense at highest lvl

It's a four day old character hauling. It doesn't have to be an alt of an oldschooler.

first off how many low lvl organized corps there are? probably not many , you either need some massive unorganized corp, which would  do some half arsed pvp , or dunno

There are plenty . You just need to look instead of whining here.

its same , if you start playing wow for example  ( at which i am good, but not playing anymore ) then you tell me, oh getting from 1 to 80 takes too long, or that that 70-80 takes too long.. and ill say that i did it in 3 days if not less, and then i can probably do it again in 2 days, cuz everything i know is faster, everything you dont is slowe, comparing yours 30 days old char, might mean 60 days for someone other ) , you could come saying  outfitting is fast and easy, sure you know where or why, or have corp that helps you ) you could probably come up with such idea as wow raiding is hard, and i would die laughting at you, cuz its so easy for me

Seriously man, how do you get on to this off topics personal rants ?

this whole comparison without giving any proof is BS 

He just gave you proof and you don't like it so you call it BS. You want proof of 2 day old characters beating older characters in 0.0 ? Here, I've done the work for you. www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp
Sure the players who made the characters are old but the characters were not financed by the older toons. The only thing the young characters had was the player piloting experience not the sps or the isk of old players. These skills are learned through doing and the time is dependent upon the person, not the game.

 

all you guys keep saying  "it can be done "

When you want to be closed minded and not care what anyone says then nothing you don't want can be true. Nice attitude to live by.

lordmonkus if you dont get my refferences you clearly wasnt reading this forum in last 2 weeks, cuz half of my words are from this forums,

i am closed minded? i made whole post saying how "it can be done "without  0 proof is BS , and he makes reply with

 

":1 days char can beat 5 years old char, show me how its done in wow , etc "

 

its like you cant even read, i never said 1 day year old char can beat 5 years old char in wow, never claimed that its possible and never will, its you who claim it is, so i am asking for proof, and all i get, is another claim that its possible, with 0 proof once again

 

its you who keeps saying that it can be done, proove it

 

edit  : downloading video now, even if its good, its not exactly fair comparison, to new players and "can be done claim "

its not like 5 years old char at 5 lvl warrior, have any advantage than 2 hours old warrior, they got both same skillset, and only things you can do better is moving, and timing skills, which doesnt take long to learn, specially if you played similar games "

 

while in eve, for example i dont even know how to equip my ship for pvp ( well i do to some extend, but not good enough, not to mention whole scanning,probing, or which skills to train in those 2 days for pvp only)

Still doesn't prove anything. he says it in his post. Old player using a trial account. which means he knows a lot about the game already. where to go what to do he to see and so on.

"The Challenge
So, Apocrypha came out this week and I suggested to my new housemate (an old eve player) that we make a couple of trial accounts and have a bit of a mess about. With the release of the box set stating that EVE's "Award winning PVP Environment" values "Tactics over Skill points" we decided to put that to the test. "

You seriosuly say you need proof, why,are you so lackin g imagination you cannot seen the scenario? 1 day old player stumbles across say a 4 year old pirate with a 200 mill bounty on his head. The priate is in a pod and has hidden at a planet while he goes on bio break. Are you saying that the one day old character in a noob ship could not kill the pod? Civilian weapons can kill a pod!

Now try the same scenario, take your levle 10 lets say, after all one vs level 10 or something like that you said. Let him find a level 50 character that is AFK, are you telling me he can kill him? Hell he cannot even hit him!

Now both of these are FACTUAL examples based on the KNOWN and PROVEN mechanics of the games, please tell me what needs to be proven here.

Bruise let me see if I read your post right. You are saying the because one player has played longer and knows the game better it is wrong that he has an advantage?

EVE is as much about tactics as it is about the ingame skills and ISK. I mean if you like a game that requires no though, just click and thats it then more power to you, but is anyone seriously arguing that the game requiring an effort to play well is a bad thing?

You know I have played Eve on and off for a few years, and I have to say this is the most moronic argument almost that I have ever seen.  These guys come on saying that a new player can survive and actually take out someone who has played for a year.  I say this is bull $hit, there is no way in hell even an experianced player can start a brand new character, and in 10 days go out and kill someone who has being playing for a year.  Can they be usefull yes can they kill someone 1 on 1  that has being playing a year, the answer is an extreme NO!

If you think you can then prove it I want to see a video of that, prove me wrong?

Don't transfer any isk from an older account, don't transfer any ships just start the player and do it from scratch.  Travel to 0.0 and see if you can kill anyone out there within your first 10 days.

Almost forgot to add, the comparison from wow, ac, eq...etc is all the same, a level 1 character or level 5 character CAN NOT kill a max level in any of those games either, so lets not compare.

Now try the same scenario, take your levle 10 lets say, after all one vs level 10 or something like that you said. Let him find a level 50 character that is AFK, are you telling me he can kill him? Hell he cannot even hit him!

Now both of these are FACTUAL examples based on the KNOWN and PROVEN mechanics of the games, please tell me what needs to be proven here.

 

 

haha, how do you make  "lottery pod killing afk guy "into P V P

Nope, what he is saying is that a new player having never played is able to do that. But the video he is posting is from a player that already knows where to get what he needs and how to go about getting it. Just like a verteran of the crappy WOW game knows how to get his low level toon outfitted too. I have barley played EVE. tried a couple of times. But my chareacter just starting out is not going to beat yours cause i don't know the game that well to outfit my ship or train the right skills. I guess if I went to a web page and used the cookie cutter sheet to train enstead of playing how I want. Then it might be possible to train all the right skills the first time and not gimp him.

Bottom line is that a totally new player is not going to beat a veteran player unless he has help geting started and told what to train.  Same goes for 99 % of all games though.

"The Challenge
So, Apocrypha came out this week and I suggested to my new housemate (an old eve player) that we make a couple of trial accounts and have a bit of a mess about. With the release of the box set stating that EVE's "Award winning PVP Environment" values "Tactics over Skill points" we decided to put that to the test. "
 

 

The point is that many people claim that you needs skillpoints and isk to compete in pvp and player skill means nothing. The guys that made that video proved that SPs and isk mean nothing and players game and tactics knowledge are more valuable in combat. These a skills a new player can be taught and learned in a couple of weeks if they want to learn.

It has nothing to do with knowing where to go and what to do. They bought rifters and went to 0.0 and fought people.
