not sure if there is enough of us to start a decent corp. and AndyMac is into Empire wars while my main character is a pirate and can't go into Empire space without getting tailed by high security ships. Squatdog does his own thing with the militia i think.

If your into mining I have a small one man mining op going on in Hek and Otou with my alt. I am finding the industrial aspect of the game alot of fun. 4-5 more days and I can run a retriever and start strip mining.

EVE? hardly. it's the only MMO i have come across that doesn't require much or any playtime to 'level' or for your character to improve. you just log in to play and that's it. your character levels in the background whether you are playing or are offline. and what video game isn't a time sink?

Its called self control...some people lack it. They tend to use terms like "Time sink"

I mean Eve is a timesink in that if you want an ability you really can't earn it, you have to wait for X amount of time to pass. So lame lol. When I use the term "time sink" for Eve it is exactly that. I want to fly this shuttle type....That will be X amount of days. I can't go out and earn it, I just have to wait. I believe that definitely qualifies as a time sink. It's not like you are leveling or doing anything but waiting on an ability. No thanks, I would rather use my time to play a game

The big difference is that you don't even have to be playing the game for your skills to advance!

It's not like grinding for months on end in some failed MMO like Everquest to become a level 100 Pixie.

right! i havent been playing EVE the last few nights. I have been waiting for skills. When I was blowing up those mercenaries or making millions sneaking ore out of low security systems I wasn't really playing. I was just waiting. I can't wait till I can really play the game.

I'm am engaged in a tiresome timesink sitting here at work not playing the game, after which I will be grinding out the Science V skill at the gym, then shopping, then again while watching TV and eating dinner. At some point I may even log on and play the game.

TIME SINK!

I was joking about how they have to wait a certain amount of time to get abilities. Like you, I don't play Eve because I'm not a ginormous romo like Gord and Squatdog. I just think it's funny that they have a system that does not allow anyone to catch up to all the other players. Sorry, you have to wait 5 days before you can raise this skill. lol how stupid. I play real games!

Well, you see here's the thing:

It's PERFECTLY possible to catch up with more experienced players with only a couple of month's training if you focus on a particular specialisation.

Gord probably has a skillset that can only slightly be improved on (in terms of 2-5% increments) by a five year old character using the same ship types.

it really isn't when you take experience into account. There is just too much required of this game to get good at it. Too much time, too much patience.

Still a great fucking game, i just don't have the time for it.

i have only been playing 2 months, but i have no clue what you're talking about. i must still be missing the part of the game that requires so much playing time. i log in blow some stuff up or do some mining, then log out. there is no grinding, no endless questing. what am i missing?

With a couple of months SP invested in a solid frig build, you will probably only have 10% less DPS, tank and Cap than someone who has been playing for years on end.

If ISK is a problem, just buy some legally in game using timecards.
