Someone missed the cardinal rule of EVE: Don't fly what you can't afford to lose.

And apparently someone forgot to buy insurance for their ship as well, which recoups a lot of costs in the event that you are careless with it.

Moreover, it doesn't take 5 months to pimp out a ship. It's not like there's super rare gear that only comes along once in a lifetime. Every turret, missile launcher and afterburner is readily available in EVE, be it a civilian pulse laser or a titan capital assault cannon. "Pimping" your ship out takes a matter of hours, provided you have the money (and skills) required to fit it, and again, that goes back to rule numero uno: Don't fly what you can't afford to lose.

As for getting lost, the galaxy can be a bit overwhelming at first, but that's why they give you a massively comprehensive map system with a great filter set and options that let you find, well, just about anything you want, and then will plot the fastest course for you to take based on how low you're willing to go security-wise.

Basically what I'm saying is that it sounds like you've never even played the game but you're condemning it anyways based on false pretenses about the way the game is played. EVE is extremely unforgiving, but that is one of its many qualities I can appreciate; it keeps all the whiners and casual players away.

Actually it is very easy to find things to do and make loads of cash. The learning curve is a little steep but once you get going it is not a difficult game.

I haven't wandered around at all. I've been doing one mission after another and always have things to do. The community has been loads of help. And I have found most people are willing to answer questions. (unlike most other mmo's)

They even have a channel just for newbs to ask questions.

So far I am having a good time with it.

Eh, you can fit smaller ships with decent gear in a relatively short amount of time. Sure you're not going to be flying around a bad ass battleship in a single week of playtime, but let's not have unrealistic expectations here.

While EVE is a timesink, it's much less of a timesink than other MMO's. Because skills are trained passively outside of player action (other than choosing the skill to be trained), you don't feel the compulsive need to play 24/7 to "try and keep up." You can only train skills as fast as the game will let you, and you don't even need to be playing the game to do it. You can play the game at your own pace. EVE relies far less on that MMO-grind addiction to keep players.

Aren't all MMO's huge time-sinks? Since the Revelations 2 content came out, creating a character is much easier and you start out with a lot more Skill points (800K). You can be flying a Battlecruiser in just a few days.

Eve takes some dedication in the beginning, but it pays off better than the other MMO's I've tried. But hey, it's not for everyone.

Ok,

I'm interested in EVE. Have any of you ever played Wing Commander: Privateer?


Eve sounds similar to Privateer, which I loved, only it's MMO.


Is this true?

A little. Theres trading in Eve, missions, and more things like inventing and manufacturing. On the down side the combat in Eve isn't really real-time, you instead you select the enemy, click "attack" then watch while the two ships circle and fire at each other. Who wins depends on who has the better equipped ship and whose been playing the game the longest, theres no skill involved.
