You have no ideea what are you talking about. You can go to 0.0 after 2-3 months, alone or in groups. There are so many video guides out there is not even funny.

Go back to ur shity theme parks.

Edit: U joined Goons? So u are troll, or just bad as all goons.

I'm very happy with this game, really surprising game and my corp aspirations arent pvp... they focus on industry and mining and so... we have fun, that's the important point... high end game is interesting, but the time you spent reaching that point must be important too...

 

No no NO! You're doing it WRONG!

You see, you're wasting your time flying around, having fun, making some friends, advancing your goals and focusing on what you can do, but what you should be doing is slumping into a bitter, envious sulk about the massive injustice inflicted on you by not being able to do everything that other players can do.

You are a disgrace to the mmorpg.com EVE community and you can rest assured that a forum ban is heading your way in very short order if you don't shape up and start whining, son.

Well Well, Mal you keep this up and maybe will exchange Facebook friends. Do not forget our new friends coming from consols soon.

I believe TQ has just under 400k subs. If you assume that an average eve player is logged in for 20 hours a week, then we'd expect to see an average of 400,000 x (20/168) = 47,600 online.

Maths is great!

there is total of 1667 skill ranks. each rank is 256k SP. total skill points equals 426,752,000.

at 2700 SP/hour, it would take about 18 years to learn all skills to level 5.

at 2100 SP/hour, it would take 23.2 years to learn all skills to level 5.

from there fourms-

do you really believe that just 20hours a week can get anywhere close to these numbers. lets just say at 100 hours a week. now with this fourmula your useing you belive there is 200k online now. iam sorry but i cant agree with your math you simply just shit out that holds no merit to the games real time table

the op wouldnt dare post this in eve online official forums. for all the people that got discouraged by this idiot you can be good in eve online in about 3 month time frame...they balanced frigates, destroyers, cruisers and all of those ships are great pvp machines. all u really need to train is gunnery skills, some defensive skills, navigation, and whatever ship u wanna use. Eve isnt really a 1v1 type of mmorpg. so u dont have to worry about fair fights.

Can you link to the data that indicates what percentage of an MMO's playerbase is usually online at one time? I am interested in what you are basing that statement on.

I'm thinking about reactivating my sub again, they've got a good deal for returners :D

Well.... this game is not for people that want to reach end game over a night with no work.

Just play and have fun. Stop crying because you cant catch veteran players with 1 button.

I thought about playing some eve lately and buying maybe 6 months sub try help me get into it. I saw the 3 month deal and might just get that.

The major issues i usually run into when playing eve:

*The loneliness of space. Don't really run into many ships to do stuff with (i like pve but eve doesn't lend itself to getting some ppl together and running some complexes ect really want to try some incursions but that hasn't come to be either)

*The lack of grind. Might seem silly to some people but i actually miss something to work at with the skill system working at in real time. Theres isk, and rep which are really trivial and something you mostly have to work at solo. Which defeats the purpose of an mmorpg imo.

*Time to progress. I dont like the fact that skills take 2 months to aquire. it makes me feel like i just bought the skill for the price of 2 subs and it gets delivered in 2 months.

I really love this game tho, and wish the company the best of luck hopefully ill return soon...

Hey, yeah I was thinking about that 3 months deal as well :) it's really a good offer.

First time I played I had that feeling, I was all alone and I had no idea what to do.. I was wondering around and doing some random quests like an idiot and asked my self "what's the purpose of this?"... But then, the lucky guy I am, I ran into this super sweet capsuleer who actually decided to help me out and got me into his corporation/alliance and she explained me the things I asked about in EVE and thus made my starter EVE days alot easier. First time I played it laster around 3 months, after that I reactivated and played for about a year and few months, and this is my second return to the game and I'm planing on staying longer than I did last time.

First thing I'll do is finding a decent corporation to mine and get planetary interactions sorted (it seems fun) so I have some decent ISK income and do some missions together so I won't feel alone out there in universe.

The time to get skills is usually long and it really does take alot of time to get something, in the mean time I usually go out and explore the mid sections of the universe in order to find some of the rarer materials to mine (with the help of stronger and more PVPish corp. members to watch my back) or just do some random quests like cargoing, etc...

The last *, yeah, I've got the same feeling... But after like 3 months of playing, last time, I was able to get my PLEX via in-game currency and when I got my first PLEX, that feeling was mostly gone :D...

Why on earth would you not let people, who love/prefer EVE style, have their game? You choose a game of your taste and play that.

I'm having hard time understanding people, who think the world should turn just around their belly button.

Yeah pretty much the same thing happened to me.. There are alot of great helpful players out in eve, (along with some very devious ones lol) I sometimes wonder what happened to those people..


First thing I'll do is finding a decent corporation to mine and get planetary interactions sorted (it seems fun) so I have some decent ISK income and do some missions together so I won't feel alone out there in universe.

I tried doing that pretty heavily for awhile. can be fun its a great mini game from memory.


The time to get skills is usually long and it really does take alot of time to get something, in the mean time I usually go out and explore the mid sections of the universe in order to find some of the rarer materials to mine (with the help of stronger and more PVPish corp. members to watch my back) or just do some random quests like cargoing, etc...
Ive been in some really great corps but i usually *unsub* before i can gain enough skill to help effectively.

For example if i went back now i would like to do some wormhole space, But i know i need several weeks/months to get the necessary scanning skills in order to get around in wormhole space never mind the combat skills to deal with the sleeper (?) mobs.

I also like the idea of defending miners against attackers but that never seemed to happen even tho i have enough skills to cover that job :)


The last *, yeah, I've got the same feeling... But after like 3 months of playing, last time, I was able to get my PLEX via in-game currency and when I got my first PLEX, that feeling was mostly gone :D...

If i could find a... "good" way to pay for my gametime with in game currency then i think i could invest alot more time in eve.

I did the maths once, I would have to run a lvl 5 mission every day for the month in order to get enough isk to cover the plex. That got old at about day 14 lol.

Can you link to the data that indicates what percentage of an MMO's playerbase is usually online at one time? I am interested in what you are basing that statement on.

 

When you log into the game the splash page tells you exactly how many people are online at that very minute.  They don't hide that data like most all other MMO's.  He's correct, the game almost never has more than 55k online from when I last logged on which was about four months ago.

500k subs may be how many they've racked up over the lifetime of the game, but I find it extremely hard to believe that the game actually has 500K current subs.  Mayyyyyybe 150K current active subs, of which 55K are online at any given time. and even then a good 25% or more of those accounts are alts or trial accounts, which means that there are probably only 30K actual real players on at any given time.

I myself and every person in my corporation, bar two or three people, have 2+ accounts.  One of my corpies has 5+ accounts and is usually logged onto 3 of them at any given time.  I'm personaly logged onto both of my primary accounts every time I play.  One is earning ISK for me and the other is usually looking for something to shoot.

Forbes and CCP and everyone else never points out those two little pertinent bits of data when wowing people about how many subs they have.

I believe TQ has just under 400k subs. If you assume that an average eve player is logged in for 20 hours a week, then we'd expect to see an average of 400,000 x (20/168) = 47,600 online.

Maths is great!

there is total of 1667 skill ranks. each rank is 256k SP. total skill points equals 426,752,000.

at 2700 SP/hour, it would take about 18 years to learn all skills to level 5.

at 2100 SP/hour, it would take 23.2 years to learn all skills to level 5.

from there fourms-

do you really believe that just 20hours a week can get anywhere close to these numbers. lets just say at 100 hours a week. now with this fourmula your useing you belive there is 200k online now. iam sorry but i cant agree with your math you simply just shit out that holds no merit to the games real time table

How on earth is that relevant to concurrent players vs total subscribers?

Also, clearly you have never played EvE, if you had you would realise the hours you play have no bearing on the skill points you accumulate, NOT one single player will max out the skills in EvE for another decade or so.
