I will send you some isk when I next log on to get you started.

A tip from me would be if you are interested in combat, start training towards flying a Rifter. It's a good starting frigate and I had lots of fun with it when I first started. That means you want to work towards projectile weapons. There is a build somewhere in this thread that squat posted showing a 'build' or what you should train to be a rifter pilot.

I can see how this game isn't for everyone, but I'm enjoying it. Also i sent you big gord a message lol.


If anyone else wants to add me just add dreddz cortes. Yes my character has dreads. Phone Post

I've been doing mining and military missions.

Don't know what to really do. From now on. Keep mining? I want to build my own ships, but will look at guides on how to. Phone Post

Start training your alt to be a miner... Sell them on the forums. Make tons of isk. 

Mining from the get go gets boring as hell. Best way to make quick cash is to run Missions on your main and train your alt to sell.

Squat can explain better.

I just saw this review on MetaCritic and thought I'd share:

 

 

 

EVE is graphically beautiful, and has a lot of depth. It also has some of the most brutal, merciless PVP found anywhere. Unfortunately, the way it is designed for the most hardcore PVPers means it has nothing to offer anyone else.

If you're the sort of person who likes to pick on defenseless other players, almost kill them, ransom them for the majority of their in-game assets, and then kill them up anyway just for fun, then this is, as far as I know, the only game where such conduct is not a ToS violation but rather an accepted way of living for many players. If like most people, you find the above unethical, horrifying, or just downright vicious, EVE is not the right game for you.

I've always been a fairly competitive PVP player (spend a lot of my time on SC2 ladder) but EVE is way beyond what even I am comfortable with. EVE is a universe where anyone can randomly kill you at any time for no reason. There is no safety anywhere. One of the players' mottos is "don't fly what you can't afford to lose" because you can and will get randomly ganked by much higher-level players for no reason, and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it.

IMHO, this is not the way to run a game. It caters to the most sociopath players, and anyone even suggesting that PVPers could do their thing in their zones, and PVEers could be left alone in theirs is labelled a "carebear" and mercilessly mocked by other players. The whole game is built on a brutal, exploitative attitude where everyone is out to get everyone else and that just doesn't make for a very nice environment to play in.I really did try to give this game a chance. I played for a few months. I flew every class of ship up to and including battleships, but in the end, the fancy graphics and the hype just couldn't cover up that this is essentially a game for sociopaths.

If you're a sociopath, this will be your paradise. If you are a normal person, then stay away.

Here's something we found amusing.

A month ago, the Gallente fags were gloating about how they managed to stabilise Heyd and push it back to 0% contested, even going so far as to make a hilariously bad propaganda video soaked with nerd jizz:




25 days later? Caldari busts the I-Hub and flip the system.




This is what Eve sounds like to me post-DT.




Russian.

-EA Frigs and Ceptors were (finally) rebalanced to the point where some of them no longer suck.

-Warp speed changes mean that frigs can outrun larger ships in warp and land on gates ahead of them.

-Two new cloaky faction ships (designed for exploration, but used for shamelessly ganking people)

-Deployable cyno jammers and mobile depots.

-New exploration sites that spawn rats and have a self-destruct timer (apparently).
