  • Tried the game - Here's my Feedback in EVE Communication Center

    I didn't know this one... Really love it ^^.


    For the OP, Eve is not the casual theme park you can find everywhere. The harsh environment, steep learning curve, the community are the specificity of Eve and make the game a lot more rewarding than any other MMO I ever played.

    As opposed to what you say, the sens of accomplishment is a lot higher in this game. When you need so much effort and sweat to put something together, and even more to keep it alive, there is a true feeling of accomplishment.

    Also, we can all mine all day long to make ISK, build ships and modules to sell, run mission to kill rats, but in the end, if ships and modules are not destroyed, who will buy them ? Nobody. Then, who will need to mine and build ? Nobody. Who will leave the game ? All industrialists and miners, but also traders. THIS is what would kill Eve, very very fast.

    The game need everything to stay alive : miners, industrialists, mission runners, but also pirates, gankers and scammers. If one side disappear, the other will follow almost immediately.

    So, if you don't like Eve as it is, this game is not for you and it's better to leave. There is no shame or blame in this statement, Nothing in this world is made for everyone. Find a game that suits your needs/will and enjoy it as much as we enjoy Eve's harsh environment.

    Fly safe to your new world.



    I cannot take credit for the quote, but I thought it would suit the thread well.

    Otherwise, to the OP:
    Very sorry that you feel this way. EVE is a great game, and best played with friends. Good luck on finding something that entertains you more.

    I've wardecced some Highsec corporations for Nullsec recruiters before, all part of the plan Pirate

  • Returning player with 50mil SP looking for a home in EVE Corporations, Alliances and Organizations Center

    No Copy/Paste Here!

    Check out ExDominion. Social First! RL > EVE.

    We run USTZ EAST (I'm from Canada personally). We are based in Provibloc nullsec, and are active on the PVP front with mostly small-gang stuff. We also run coalition ops on a large scale level.

    In order to fund replacements, we have an SRP program for anything up to and including capitals, and there are ample isk making opportunities to be had. Ratting and exploration are my two favourite things to do.

    Last thing: Dont fly an imicus. We banned that hull due to it being too damn ugly.

  • Plex price 3M? in EVE Communication Center

    Would it not partly have to do with all the cosmetics converting from an AURUM cost to a nuPLEX cost? People who now want skins, clothing, etc... need Plex in order to purchase them. This in turn increases demand for it. I haven't looked at the volume changes as of late, but I bet you that is playing a role in this.

    "Prepare for Omega"

    If you have the IRL cash, just get it now. It will double your training speed.

    If you'd rather not, get your fitting skills up. I would aim for a ton of SP into the Vexor (or cruiser of your choice). Cruisers are used in PVP and PVE effectively, and I say the Vexor due to you being Gallente Alpha, and it being one of the most versatile cruisers in the game.

    This means focussing on
    • Drone skills (drone interfacing, light drone, medium drone, buy heavy drone for when you're omega).
    • Tanking skills. Get your t2 armor tank asap.
    • Fitting skills such as Weapon Upgrades, Capacitor Management, etc...
    • I would also recommend social and trading skills, which will help you in the long run with certain quality-of-life things like more trade orders, and easier to recover from bad standings from mission running. (< < I THINK these skills are alpha-friendly)

  • Questions about ice belt rat in EVE Communication Center

    The downside to mining ice and having to warp out is that you need to complete one full cycle to get a chunk of ice. Meanwhile while gas and ore mining, you can cancel your cycle mid-way and still get the equivalent m3.

    I would look at joining a nullsec corp, or mining in Providence. I used to run a Procurer with 5x Acolyte II in Provi, and could take on 2 BS rats at once in a belt without warping off. Procurer was rigged for EM and Therm damage resists. Anything more than that, I would need to warp out.

  • Questions about ice belt rat in EVE Communication Center

    The trick is to stay aligned.
    Alternatively, go in and get friendly with the locals. Providence space is famous for allowing neutrals fly through and operate in their systems (as long as they are not KOS)

  • Upwell structures should consume "base" amounts of fuel or ISK in Council of Stellar Management

    I love this idea for the simple fact that there are just way too many structures in highsec, and it clutters my overview when flying through.

    I think either fuel or isk requirements are fine. Fuel requirements are more lore-friendly in terms of how things work?

  • Reprocess or Market? in EVE Communication Center

    It doesn't seem like it would be worth it to sell on the Market because the profit margin doesn't really justify using an order slot. I suppose the best thing for me to do is reprocess it and sell the raw materials in large lots?


    When you sell something you dont have to use an order slot, you can also insta sell it to someones buy order.
    You usually only setup sell orders on expensive items you may find, or if you are trying to get the absolute best market margins if you are a market focused player.


    I've trained the trading skills SOLELY to have more market slots. I absolutely hate insta-selling. Its like throwing away isk for items that are higher-turnover.

  • Questions about ice belt rat in EVE Communication Center

    I haven't tried it myself, but nullsec anoms spawn BS rats, and I dont think the endurance will be able to take those on solo. Sure, you might be able to speed tank, but the DPS might be too low to break their tank.

    Alternatively, try the Proc/Skiff. These guys are tanky, and a full set of drones will be able to make quick work the npc BS.

  • Ice or ore? in EVE Gameplay Center

    I would suggest whichever ore/ice you have better refining skills in. The refined goods, once you have decent skills and a cheap place to refine in, offer more returns and the the ice or ore itself.

  • What exactly do I do? (being wardecced) in EVE Gameplay Center

    Wardecs on highsecurity-based indy corps are common. You have two main options for your corporation.

    Option 1
    Move to a nullsec alliance, or if you are neutral to Provibloc, move to Providence nullsec. This will not only protect you from highsec wardecs, but will also give you access to better ores. As alpha's, I strongly recommend you do this and make friends down there that can help you mine and protect you. I used to be a highsec adventurer like you, then i took an arrow to the knee. Since joining nullsec, I can never move back. The community is better, the isk opportunities are better, and highsec griefer wardecs don't affect you. Click Here to find out if you are KOS.

    Option 2
    Make an alt, set your alt as CEO of corp, then everyone drops corp. Note that doing this will not allow you to join back into the corp until the war is over. Alternatively, move out of your current highsec hub and try another system.

    The wardec system, as stated above, definitely requires an overhaul. However *puts on tinfoil hat* I think CCP wants to keep it this way to push players out of small HS corps and into nullsec/lowsec.
