Yesterday i decided to install Eve Online and give it a go, i followed the tutorial and now i’m trying to figure things out as i go, there is so much to do, to learn, to absorb as there is a lot of information to take in.
I apologize in advance if this post is way too long but i have many things on my head…question and i’m sure that a lot more will come in the future.
Unless I’m wrong Eve online was released in 2003, that’s really impressive and it seems that people have always been playing this game for a long time, also i think that people can play it on different launchers so i guess that the numbers would be higher than the ones showed at Steam.
I was wondering about the game size and scale, how big is it? I know that i can access the map and see what awaits me but i was wondering how big it is and if it would be possible, considering the dangers of that decision, to go from one side to the far side of the system without using jumps or warping?
This leads to my next question, since the game as it is seems huge and knowing that it’s a game from 2003, how active are the devs with the game, do they add new content like new systems to explore or the map as it is now it’s final and never expanded?
I started as a trader, i have to be honest here, i started as one because i always loved games where there is a live and changing economy with auction houses or markets, i guess that we have that here on EVE? I played and still play WoW and one thing i love to do there is always try to buy and sell goods at the auction house. On Eve Online so far i’m just mining asteroids, i don’t even know how i can find new mining fields, so yes i suck at this game but i wonder if there is more things that we can trade?
Outside resources or asteroid fields what can a player sell at the market that we can get out there in space?
I was checking this website out of curiosity The 12 Wildest Stories To Come Out Of Eve Online , if these are true stories that’s really insane, and that made me think if there is a place where those are available at some website for me to read and if people still continue to write down and publish their crazy adventures in space?
Is it possible to someone like to to rescue another player in the game if that person needs help? If so how can also one ask for help?
In terms of exploration in the game, are there any interesting points of interest? I played WoW and other MMORPG’s so i am used to the terms of raids, dungeons and so on, i know that EVE is different from those game but in terms of content what can i do, if there is any that is?
As i mentioned above i started as a trader/industrialist, how can i find new mining fields? I noticed on the tutorial that we can find ship wrecks and scan them for rewards or some sort of loot, are those random or is there a way to go out there and search for abandoned ships or even stations?
I really apologize for the long post and also the many questions.
Thank you for reading this, stay safe
