I was actually looking at this a while ago, it does look good but i'm just afraid it will turn into a grind
But if one day we meet together while I'm drunk, I promise you to draw a big group sex picture including a lot of forumites. :D

This game is brainheavy if you ask me. I tried it the trialtime but it felt like one big confusion. I had my expectations set on something like Homeworld but this just didin't fit me at all. To much info and stuff directly from the start.

EVE has no grind. There is no end game or leveling. Skills train offline in real time so you can't grind your way up. Pretty much everything just comes down to doing pvp. Unlike MMOs with levels you can actually be useful from the start in pvp.

Was pretty, but you spend most of your time watching your ship fly itself.

The real problem that with EVE is that the start is really really hard unless you have someone who has played the game for quite long time helping and tutoring you with stuff. EVE really lets you do pretty much what you want to do, and that rocks.

Back in the days I played it me and my friend were ship-builders, we both hauled, mined and traded like no tomorrow in order to make our first cruiser (Thorax was the cruiser, ah the memories). I remember visiting my friend and hauling really really expensive stuff through a dangerous zone while my friend played next to me on his laptop. We were both scared that a pirate or something might come, blast me and take our precious ~5mil worth of materials  ;D. Ah the days!

The market system is really well made so that you can basically start a monopoly on some items if you want.

Also, EVE is likely the biggest far-arse game I have ever played. I mean, what other game allows you to mine, read a book, watch anime and listen to music at the same time?  8)

And yes, the ships are cooooool

"Are adding."

Heh. It's on the drawing board. The massive amount of extra work that would place on the servers would break the game at 5k players.

Oh, yeah, I have two accounts and two characters I play regularly. If you care to message me in game, the names are Karli Fre'a and Syri Taneka. I've been playing over a year now. It gets grindy at times, but that's what month+ skilltimes are for =P.

I've also gotten pissed enough to quit many times, especially when I was newer to the game. Each time that happened I logged on the next morning, same as always, as though nothing had happened, and started fitting a new ship, scraping together ISK from wherever I could.

The first few (I think about 6) months on Syri I made pretty much all my ISK playing the markets while I ran level 1 missions in a Catalyst and trained support skills. Sounds duller than it is. As a result I have a good grasp on market play and still use that from time to time. Speaking of which, I have about 30 spare t2 explosive energized armor resists I'm looking to liquidate for around 400k each. I don't remember where in my many mini-station bases they are, but they're probably near where I currently lair....
Your approval fills me with shame.

I played the free trial at some point last fall and liked the game a lot. I just bought a 500€ longsword, which I still need to pay for and I haven't had a confirmation of getting a summer job from any of the places I sent an application to so, unfortunately, I can't afford to pay a monthly fee for a game right now. I'll probably start EVE again if I get a summer job, though.

[offtopic]New longsword? Pixoritneverhappened! Please?[/offtopic]

I've thought of trying out the game for a while, but considering the unhealthy amount of time I already use on other games, I don't think it's a good idea...

My next avatar will include the aforementioned weapon, I'll change it as soon as I find a USB cable that fits our camera. I know we have at least ten of the kind but I can't figure out where the hell any of them are.

EDIT: There you go. Clicky for a better quality pic.
