My Opinions after 1 month playing

Yeah no credit card purchases at all, just carefully playing the game and wise market investments

Any 2 week old newbie who puts in effort to learn can earn quite a lot of money just fine, in high sec. Anyone who wants to mine and thinks ahead can start with a single alpha account and within a year run an orca with 4 barges easy. Want to do trading as a newbie? Sure it’ll start off slow but if you’re good at it you’ll do fine.

It’s not about SP, it’s not about character age, it’s not about starting as alpha. It’s about knowledge, planning and effort.

ore equipment is hundreds of millions of isk, even for the ones that go on a venture.

Sorry, what Faction ship is going to help an Alpha mine well?

Sure you have to invest time, but my only question was do you think 5 years to go from 10m to a couple hundred bill in resources and ships is too long?

i dont know what faction ship he means. 5 years to build wealth in a game is long by any standard, but with eve being more oriented for the long game i dont think its unreasonable. i know on my part, there is a bit of frustration because i want to do all the things everybody else is already doing. I just dont have the money to put into plex to buy skill injectors and ships and stuff.

Im saying you dont even have to.

EvE is a game of scale. Sure, wars are fought on a big scale an have thousands of participants and so use big ships.

But solo players dont need ships like that. Wnat a Carrier? Try a Dragoon or an Vexor, much more affordable and does basically the same thing on a much smaller scale.

Like wise, theres no faction ship an Alpha can use to mine. Dont mine to make isk, mine if you need raw mats. Because either a Venture or a tricked out Arbitrator or Battleship is the only alternative and thats neither fun nor quick.

Imagine if the OP wrote this today after reading reddit.

I fell into that rabbit hole earlier today and my god. I am so glad I have not gone out to nullsec.

You might have missed all the actual screenshots of stuff. Mods deleted it.

they’ve been reposted on several threads. Like, I get that people are outraged about stuff that happened 15 years ago, but people do change and grow. I didn’t see anything that suggested he or anyone else was doing those disgusting things recently.
I don’t hop on bandwagons of trying to punish people for things they did years ago because people do grow up. What more concerns me is the people bragging about calling up irl jobs and trying to get people fired, or calling social services and claiming people are doing disgusting things to their kids, and many other disgusting things.
Where do they get off being such trashy people? They lost any moral highground they thought they had for sure. Cancel culture is cancer culture. Isnt eve supposed to chew those type up and spit them out?

It’s all trash and really bad for the game. I’m surprised msm hasn’t gotten hold of the entire thing.

give it time. gaming magazines will probably touch the subject long before anyone considered msm

Given where they all came from, it was safe to assume that has been going on since the start.

The player log on numbers have dropped a fair bit with all this crap, probibly people too depressed to try move all their stuff out of goon space.

Truth - And I’m the exception to that rule that proves it.

I poked around EVE and instantly said this is what I’d like for my retirement job to keep my mind active because it appeals to the obsessive analyst and strategist sides of me.
