^^ Huge alliances go after each other as well. Those are the 1k + battles. I'd say most battles in the militia were like 30-40 on 20-10. Always tried to have number when engaging. I was part of the Caldari Militia.

I've just been doing the job tutorials. I lost around 5-6 ships on one mission before I realized that there was a bomb going off everytime I warped in.

So I have a few ships now, most of which I can't use on a trial account. I was going to buy the game, but the Steam sale ended. It's a fun game, but I'm probably spending too much time playing it anyway. I think I'll play through the rest of the tutorials and then quit until it goes back on sale.

Not usually, but the game was half off a couple days ago and I won't have much time to play after tomorrow anyway. I would rather wait until I have more time to play and Steam has sales all the time, so waiting for the next one is no biggie.

Intelligence is the primary attribute for most of the support skills. Charisma is only used in Social (mission-related), Leadership (gang bonuses) and some Trade skills.

Skills by importance go something like this:

1- Perception
2- Intelligence
3- Willpower and Memory

4- ??

99- Charisma

I've been doing some PvE missions now that I finished all the tutorials. Tooling around in a destroyer is a lot nicer than a frigate. Get mission > set autopilot > vaporize mobs > reset autopilot rinse, repeat is an easy way to make money.

Once I get a real account I'm going to break out the Industrial ships I have docked. Kind of stupid that trial accounts can't train industrial ships.

 Oh man, I love stealth bombers.

Remember we got into a fight once.. 30 stealth bombers vs 15 Battleships... Only thing left on the field was 10 stealth bombers.

My alt is being developed as a Minmatar frig pilot and those are the basic skills it has mapped out in EvEmON.

My alt also happens to be in Gallente militia...

 Griffen, you know how when you started BJJ, you couldn't tap anyone out for 6 months? For 6 months, you were getting slaughtered, getting your ass kicked, getting third hooked. But then, after a few months, you finally tapped someone out? You remember that feeling? Yeah. Thats EvE.

haha its not that bad. EVE is a sandbox MMO. It is completely non-linear. So that can throw people off as it's easy to get confused on what your supposed to do. Do you want to do PvE, PvP or make money? That's a good way to start. Once you figure that out find a corp that specializes in that. there is tons of corps that except new players.

My personal experience after almost 2 months playing is that it's an awesome MMO. I like it because there is no grinding out levels, etc. Even while you don't play your character gets better.
