OP  3/09/13 2:11:06 PM#1

So I've been searching for a mmo to fill this WoW shape space in my heart but didn't find any. 

And then some mates of mine from Starcraft suggested I should totally try out EvE.

None of my irl friends play this, and from what I've read it's preety overwhealming to a newbie if he can't find an experienced corp. to help him out.

I've started reading about it, and the first thing I found remarcable is the community, I've never seen such a solid community in any mmo, so I've decided to buy it.

So are there any mates here willing to share their EvE wisdom with me? cos I would really like to get into this game! 

 

Cheers!

1. Trust no-one. 2. Don't fly anything you can't afford to lose. 3. Find a good corp (then see point 1). Welcome to EVE :)

I've been playing EVE off and on for eight years and there's still huge parts of the game I don't understand.  I picked my little niche and I would say that I'm an expert in that area, but in other facets I would have to do some major reading just to get started.

EVE is the most in-depth game you'll ever play.  It's one of the reasons I love it.  Its difficulty is its own built in "barrier to entry".  In the entire time I've been playing I've been in a dozen corps and never once heard a kid on voice comms.  That alone is a huge bonus unlike the other game I play all the time, World of Tanks, which is chocked full of window licker kiddies.  Now don't get me wrong, some kids are great at EVE, but in this age of entitlement, most of them can't handle the fact that EVE forces them to work for something.

Totally agree with the first two. Especially Rule One "Trust No One"... ^^ But I spent almost six years in the game, and never left SWA.  I quite enjoyed the game, until CCP started to lose track of what their game is all about.  If I remember right I had around 43 million SP's from that time.  EVE can be a lot of fun, but it still has a pretty steep learning curve (though not nearly as bad as it once was).

Stimz's reply is exactly why you shouldn't trust anyone in EVE :-)

A case of looking helpful/generous and yet there's always an ulterior motive, ie he gets a PLEX if you sub off his invite.

If you want a buddy invite do it via one of the people in this thread - https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=9874 Atleast then you'll get a load of ISK to help you on your way.

EvE is slow paced in the sense that you skill up over time, I'm not sure what the "lot of downtime" means. Downtime is 11:00 to about 11:15 GMT although it can be anything from 10 to 30 minutes.

Perhaps in the sense that you have to wait for other people to do stuff, it could be called down time, but then again that's the same in any game I guess.

I sometimes make spelling and grammar errors but I don't pretend it's because I'm using a phone

Thanks mates for all your replys. I didn't use a buddy invite, because I bought the game before I could read your comments. Anyways, i'm haveing a great time, love the game so far... still looking for a good corp who would take in noobies and help them with knowledge not necessarily material crap, like ships and isk! If you know some corp. like that, please let me know!

Cheers!

EVE University is a good place to start. Or, if you're interested in pvp, give Red Vs Blue a go: It requires no compromise, and you can join and leave as many times as you like. I have fond memories of my time there.

1  BattleClinic - use it to find ship builds

 Pick a ship to fly and focus on skills to improve it. A lot of people waste time raising skills they do not even need.

2  Missions -

 Pick a ship that can pvp and pve and buy 2 of them. Run missions to salvage. Sell salvage to earn isk. I hate mining and salvaging is the best isk I could find starting off.

 I started as caldari and jumped from kestrel to caracal to drake. This let me focus on missile skills while moving toward the drake which is a great mission runner while also being noob friendly due to having an insane passive tank. On the PvP side I have a 2nd drake fitted for ganking with hams, buffer tank, web, microwarp, etc.

 I suggest you learn the ship roles first. I am pretty new myself but these are the things that I have learned so far.

Just remember that unlike most other MMOs where the grind is Experience, the grind in EvE is ISK. So the goal is to try and figure out the most efficient way to get ISK for time spent. The quicker you make ISK the more time you will have to pursue / explore other aspects of the game. Missions tend to generate fairly good ISK/time spent, but the more you learn about the game the more other ways will become apparent to you. Good luck and fly safe o7.

That's what I did in the beggining as well, nothing wrong with that. It's not the most profitable activity, especially in high-sec, but it sure can get you started while you train some skills.

Could take a couple of days. It is a huge corp and they take in a lot of apps. They have screen each one to weed out the spies and such. If you haven't got you vent/ts interview yet, just hang in there. It took my friend over a week, but he was barely on and had to rescedule interviews a couple times.

Have you tried the corp finder in game? If so, I'm interested in whether it was helpful or not in finding corps that fit your time and playstyle.

I've tried it mate, not so helpful. Only showed a limited number of corps, most of them with 10, 20 members tops! So no, i did not find it usefull at all.

Don't be afraid to try out a few corps, having some people to chat with while grinding isk makes all the difference.

something not mentioned above, if you see it local, it is a scam. I don't care if your mother linked the contract, if she did it in local, she's scamming you.

E-uni takes some time to process their applications. I've only blown em up, not been in but I think the motd on their public channel states which date's applications they're currently working on.
