OP  1/16/13 9:34:57 AM#1

After nine years of not playing I  logged into the game started reading.  I own a Rupture, I have 45 (skill points: 2,992,606) and around 8m isk.  Great....now what? So I kept reading, reading and more reading. Oh, I am also a member of a corporation of one....me and my alt.

Launched, then docked...logged out

So far, this is what I found out:

wtf

I have no idea what to do next

There is at least one error in your calculation

C1 is 0,0241666666666....

That's probably where your problem lies. Hopefully it helps. ;)

I cant remember that much that far back.  I know I was mining for a large part helping the corp.

I have this huge ship and have no idea what to do now.  Can I still train?

 Go to youtube or google and look up some guides for mining and mission running.

Join a corporation with actual other people in it. They can help you and answer questions, just expect suspicion, it is a game of politics and intrigue after all.

I would start by finding a couple of agents that you can do missions for, unless you want to be a miner instead. Avoid doing missions in trade hubs like Jita. Find a nice quiet out of the way cluster of systems and go to work.

Keep most of your stuff on the space station. Salvage your wrecks in missions.( You can go back with a diffrent ship if you make a bookmark to the location)

Look online for guides to the starter missions and the story arcs.

You want a couple of agents that you can access close by, in case you have to turn down a mission from one agent you can just go work for the others.Avoid missions that send you into low sec space at first, until you can afford to lose your ship don't go.

Keep skilling up to higher tier ships, once you can fly a bigger ship, and fit it. You can do higher level missions. Again there are guides online.

If none of this is interesting, you can ;

Haul trash or any other trade items for profit (just be aware of contraband laws)

Be a bounty hunter.

Be a pirate.

Be a corporate raider.

Join the faction war.

Take up scanning.

Specialize in electronic warfare.

Set up planetary colonies for profit

Harass miners.

Learn manufaturing.

Learn research.

Explore 0.0 space in a shuttle.

 

Or just about any thing else you would like to do.

Maybe you just want to learn how to make frigates and then hang out in the newbie zone handing out free ships. If that is what you want to do ... do it.

 

( Note to self-Don't say anything bad about Drizzt.)

An acerbic sense of humor is NOT allowed here.

I know.  Just need to put some serious time into it.  Maybe it will all come back to me, but when I started playing 9 years ago, it didnt look so complicated as it does now.

It's all about what *you* want to do. Check this out: http://swiftandbitter.com/eve/wtd/

 

Also, press F12, and do the following:

1. Click the Tutorials tab and do the tutorials.

2. Click Show Career Agents and do the missions for each one.

3. Go.

Once you have placed the command centre, you can edit the rest from station if you have the right skills to do it remotely. You don't even have to be in same system.

You will obviously have to go there when you want to collect or drop off goods

Man, I am really getting overwhelmed with this game.  There is so much to learn and remember.  I can see why this game is lasting so long and keeps the subscription high.

Very well made game.

Totally agree. The amount of things you can do, and learn, is what drew me to this game and keeps me engaged even years later. It doesn't hurt that it's also one of the most immersive MMOs out there.

Ah what to do in Eve.....that brother is what you need to ask yourself...

Do i want to mine ? if yes ? where do i want to mine ? Hisec / Lowsec / Nullsec / Wormhole
Do i want to be player ? making spreadsheets ? control distance markets with lots of profit?
Do i want to be a carebear and never leave Hisec and mission untill i quit the game ?
Do i want to be part of something bigger ? dying for a cause in Faction Warfare ?
Do i want to be part of a not so distand war between 2 of the strongers powers that Eve has ever seen ? CFC also known as Goonswarm Federation + their brothers in arms or the mighty new kid on the block named HBC also known as Honey Badgers Coalition aka Test alliance please ignore ?
Do i want to be a pirate and make a name for yourself ?

Ask yourself these questions and find terms with your innerself about what YOU want to be.


I joined Eve in 2011 and quited after 2 months of doing missions untill my eyes bleeded red.
I came back 5 weeks ago and joined TNT - Tactical Narcotics Team ( member of CFC / Goonswarm Federation) and iam having the time of my life.
I undock and rat/plex 40/50 million isk in an hour with my low 9 mill skillpoints.
Home Defence calling me as meatshield and burn ships.
Ops to cause mayhem in enemy territory
Ops to defend critical places that need protection

Learning the ropes of Null-Sec with people who i taught to be rude beasts that have no time for low skill point pilots like me...yet they are willing to learn me everything they know.
Taking the time to show me around and let me taste the blood of enemy's under extreme presure of winning each battle or in some cases making a fleet and fly till you die causing as much damage as we can for the fun of it :)


Eve.....so much to learn but so much fun when flying with the right people ;)

Well, I tried to get back into it.  I just dont seem to have the time.  This game requires hours upon hours to do anything.  Now that I am older, I just cant find the time to put into it.

 

I really wanted to, but alas, I can't.

 

Thanks all for the great responses. I really did try, but I couldnt get sucked in.  So I am playing Miner Wars 2081

 

I can pop in, play awhile and pop out.  Sheesh, I hate getting old.  Time is not on my side anymore.

 

Later all, and thanks so much for the encouragement.

Best thing you could do with limited time and without wasting hours for reading about something complicated is to contact Red VS Blue organization. Its actually 2 corps that are in constant war against each other, for the sake of laughter and murder with no ties attached. Call them up, join either of the teams, join their comm's and set destination to nearest fight. 8 mil gives buys you 8x frigates with shitfits and they dont expect ANY skill or shiptype so its straight into the carnage.

After initial 1-2 hours of getting in, fitting a ship and flying to location, you should be able to go from login to firefight very short time without reading a word of any manual. Just join comms, hit orbit, active guns and get addicted.

 

Its a game about what YOU want. You want no hazzle straight action without much effort, and yes, EVE delivers that too.

I had to give up recently myself, love the game, but real life just won't let me play the way I want to.

Maybe if I win that darn lottery.

the thing about eve is that people all the time, when someone asks wtd, say "what do you want to do?" the problem i think the op is running into, and is one which i ran into and caused me to drop my sub, is that there's no good entry point on the thing you want to do. you literally have to dive into the deep end, headfirst, and hope that you learn things faster than you get fed up. so "just do it"? no. newbie soloers can't "just do it." there's just too many things in the way (losses, steep learning curve forbids learning at a pace that makes every loss enough of a learning experience, difficulty recouping losses, no manageable area to learn in, etc.) even rl isn't this tough.
