Bitter vets and newbs alike return to eve online and convo Rekindle to join my 300 ++ null sec corp of social people.


I've been playing MMOs since UO and EQ early days. I've been playing Eve a long time and have been different things.

Now I'm in the twilight of my Eve career. Even with clones ol'Rekindle is just starting to get long in the tooth. 

But let me tell you about the time of my life I'm having in Eve.


For a few months now I've been CEO'ing a corp in Null Sec.  This isn't just any corp.  It has crazy people and new people and people who have a rich history in eve.  We have a guy with 30 non-is boxed mining accounts and we have been having a blast in a roams and HD fleets.


If community is what you look for in a video game then contact me, Rekindle, in the eve universe.  We don't care about skill points, just be on coms and perhaps save a freighter and/or try out your singing voice.  Learn some new game concepts, try a Hecate.  Come experience the game with friends.


We are Eve Online Full Spectrum Inc.


If you were thinking about coming back for Fozzie Sov then come write new stories with us.....we've been preparing for this change.

what slump are we talking about here? If you are talking about your own personal disconnection with the current crop of MMOs, then fine. 


I see a lot of generalized comments made here. I see billions of dollars invested annually in the development of games that would suggest the perceived notion of a slump, is just that.....a perceived notion.


RPG has as much to do with your perception of the genre as your own personal experiences has to do with the general state of the genre in 2015.


ITs a very personal experience and respectfully, I am not trying to take that away from you. But there are millions of gamers paying billions of dollars that contradict the notion that all games suck because you've played a lot of them.

I haven't played since BC.  Something called the outlands I never saw.....just wondering if it would be worth my time to go check out all that stuff while everyone else chews through WoD.....or has that boat sailed and I shouldn't bother?


(im not buying WoD :P)

and its still awesome.


EvE is an evolving metastructure that allows for a universe of nerds to fly spaceships with other people.  Its less a game than a hobby.


All that talk about spreadsheets is just a reflection of the complexity of Eve.  You can make it simple like you are going to run a couple missions or complicated like a multi week long plan to build a big ship.


Eve is awesome because it really is sandbox and i'v been on the bitching about eve wagon before but ultimately its an amazing experience.


The changes over the years do speak to a level of professionalism.

disabling is one thing, and i dont do it ever

uninstalling is quite another.

i've been an IT professional for a long time and I'm here to tell you this is terrible, terrible advice

Um, many AV programs make resident and persistent changes to the system while they are installed.  Sometimes even after uninstalling.  In fact, all the big name suites do.  They are invasive and cause more problems than they help prevent.  Many cannot be fully disabled from running a service in the background without a full uninstall as well.


lol IT professional.  You know that means about anything today right?

There are things called RFCs and standards.  Hardware vendors, AAA software vendors, people with brains -- they come together and decide upon standards and then professional companies adhere to those standards in their design.


These birds obviously have a process or some type of networking thing going on that is out of line with these standards and instead of addressing the issue professionally they are telling people to uninstall a piece of software that should never be uninstalled.

Yes , I'm a professional.

I started playing when 6000 players were connecting at once.  I saw this game grow from a hugely talented upstart company to what it is today.


They had some noble goals but there have been a few mistakes.  It is an interesting company with an interesting game.  I love and hate Eve.  From my perspective there is a fundamental problem.

Eve allows human beings to be like human beings but the truth is civilized society enjoys something that can not be enjoyed when there is a break down in civil order. 

Eve, just like in real life can be allowed to run by sparce groups of viligantes and that can be fun for some.....but as soon as you introduce a sandbox where human beings are able to affect other human beings you actually limit the spectrum of social interactions possible.

I can't be off part of a great alliance forging a new constructive destiny if I'm always looking over my back in paranoia.  I may find fun in being part of an alliance whose focus is to go out and destroy someone else or affect someone else.  However, I have never really found the need to shit all over someone else's pancakes to have a fun time.


At the center of Eve's convergant game game play is the need to have a flock of defenseless targets to insult, berate and otherwise affect.   You can only do this for so long before all you have left are a bunch of psychopathic wolves.


Eve's options are lacking because it offers plenty of destruction but trying to plant a seed and grow something in Eve is almost counter productive to the reality of the current game universe's design.



you're talking about eq2's reactionary crafting system

Yup, as I said in another post: "The road from UO to Super Mario is paved with convenience".


Fucking epic post.


look at MS since said Regime change.  MS is going into the toilet in almost everything they touch and the troubles started right around this time.


The guy made some mistakes with the deployment of the game but the over all design is something that is still better than many of the grinders released on the market today.


If you're trying to make a point about Brad screwing up not being worthy I'm not buying it.  The good news is a kick starter crowd funded game will remove one very important and crappy piece from the puzzle: Crappy producers who have no creative talent at all.

Some call Vanguard a failure.  It definitely was not what it was supposed to be but there was never a game I followed more closely than this.  I was watching this game from pre-alpha , through the disaster launch to when it went firesale to SOE and I understand pretty clearly a few things about what happened with that title.


The bottom line is the game is still running today.  You can say that it was bug ridden before SOE picked it up and made it all shiney but really what happened was they finished the optimizations that would have otherwise been part of a properly beta / release cycle (which Vanguard did not get).


Brad Mcquaid, despite all that you may have to say about him is a gifted game's designer.  One thing that I've learned in this life is that success is often preceded by failure after failure.  Brad should be given another chance because he's experienced some of the more difficult challenges and yet the game he started off with is still in operation in roughly its original form ( give or take some pretty big details).


Of all the kick starters this one may well be the one with the best chance of capturing something that's been lost.

The only way to respond to a statement like this is to try and argue why red is better than blue.

SOE time and time again has proven themselves to be a good AAA game provider. Get over the r@#$@# swg thing already. All of the companies ONLY care about making money.  You think they want to be your friend? 


Measure the game on its quality and whether their sub options work for you or not but to suggest SOE is a bad company because they are seeking profits is an antiquated statement.  You want to see crap games? Look at half the Asian grinders advertised on this site.

I think unrest for the original eq is my favorite zone of all time, so yeah i'm looking forward to going there....but not so much that I blow by 20 levels of good dungeon crawling first.



ty for the infos.

with the new merc system I'm having a lot of fun focusing on just 'dungeon' content in Everquest 2.  I recently did the Cazic Thule timeline, or at least part of it, and I'm just about done at least some things in there and I'm lvl 50. 


What is your list of fav dungeons with good loots and exps?  I know that eventually i'll level to 70 for the Estate of unrest.....where should I go before / after that?


So far I haven't been too fond of the Solesk's eye or whatever.

So, CCP is like a supertanker that isn't travelling in our direction.


I like this analogy.  I've been playing these last few months with the understanding that nothing the game is doing is geared towards my interests.  A lot of pvp'rs are surprised to hear some people have struggled to enjoy other aspects of the game over the years.


I actually played the game primarily because I like space and space stuff.  CCP had the chance to really capitalize on the pve explorer but they can't even make the drone regions viable.

Ok so I tried it.  I subscribed to the game for a month and I logged back in.  The first thing I did was clear all of my hotbars from whatever I had going on (My played tells me I started Nov 8 2004 and he was lvl 37 :) ).


After having travelled the MMO circles I'm here to tell you that EQ2 feels polished to me and that is something I've grown to appreciate.  Over all , with the mercs added in (so you can actually get to and see the good stuff at your level) I had a extremely fun time crawling through dungeons.


I started off with my Merc dude but on occasion I'd find others who wanted to join in.  It was every bit as much of a dungeon crawl experience as I remember them from Eq1.  that is because in Eq1 oft times I'd set out for a dungeon only to find people along the way.  In eq2 that experience is somewhat stunted because of the rush to get to max level.....but there are those that see this as a function of the player's choice rather than blaming game design.


I can choose to make a heroic character and bypass all that content, or I can choose to take a level 37 char.  Right now i'm sitting at level 41 with all of my exp going to AA as I explore dungeons rather than grind out solo content.


This is a most enjoyable game for mature people who have busy lives :)  well done soe, I'm looking forward.

I went back after nearly 5 years. I must admit, there are a few things that I don't like, but the game is WORLDS beyond anything else out there right now. It reminded me why I love MMORPGs. Try it again...its WELL worth it!



trying to find a way to feel motivated for this.  I like pve potential for this game but i'm trying to understand how the combat is not boring and utterly repetitive button mashing affair....I know that sounds like im slighting the game but I really am not trying to do that.  The highest level I have ever obtained is in the 40s and ive come back a few times over the years.  After a while the combat puts me to sleep, some nights literally.

always find this topic of "too many" skills weird. but am coloured I guess, EQ2 is the first MMO I played past a month, and am quite the opposite, feel like something is missing in other MMOs when only getting a handful skills....feels even more weird if only afew of the already low amount of skills is "worth" pushing - ofc there is alot of the abilities in EQ2 is rather useless.


Do you seriously feel there is challenge to the skills in eq2?  If I set my hotbar up right I don't see why its not just a matter of pressing 1,2,3.....


this is how it is at the lower levels anyway. I'm not sure what you consider challenging but I really do feel that "combat" is all about pressing those buttons in sequential order for each and every "fight" .  I don't understand how that is challenging.


I know someone is gonna give a speech about how raid targets require some thought but how is anyone supposed to make it that far with all the button mashing in this game?
