There's nothing worthwhile down that pipe and it would be too confusing to put it in.

after playing for 4 days or so I can definitely say this game is only a time sink in having fun, not in grinding. there is no grinding really as there is no levels. the only thing you level is skills, which level by themselves when your playing or offline. when you are actually playing EVE, you are doing just that, playing however you want (PvE, PvP, farming).

overall i am annoyed that i didnt play this game sooner. it really is a open PvPers dream MMO.

Squat, as a mainly Gallente pilot with only around 2mil and a bit skill points, would it be better for me to just start training up Minmatar or Caldari ship skills?

Gallente have some nice ships and you could always cross-train to Caldari if you have Hybrid Turret skills.

I downloaded the demo. The game is pretty impressive. I'm going through all the tutorials to get used to the game and get all of the bonus items. I still have no clue what to do character build-wise, but it's nice setting up the training queue and coming back with all my skills higher.

I made a Minmatar Brutor. Does that actually matter for anything game related? It seemed to me like the race stuff was all flavor and nothing really game related.

It just alters your starting attributes and basic skills.

 Not at all. Easy money in mining/industry. Dont be afraid to join a good industry corp. Youll be able to fund a seperate PvP char with the isk youll be making.
