I’m trying to come back to Eve after many years of not playing (not even sure how many, probably 6-7, if not more). My main char is over 12 years old and has about 60mil SP. I have a lot of stuff and ships scattered around (and no, you can’t have my stuff, if anyone even stills says that! ).
Unfortunately, I forgot pretty much EVERYTHING in terms of how to play, what to do, terminology, interface, even the absolute basics…, plus, Eve has changed so much over the years.
To alleviate this, I created a new alpha character and completed the new player tutorial and now I’m doing career agents, which are easy enough, but I still feel incredibly out of my depth in terms of bigger picture. I also upgraded my main character to Omega for one month.
Before, when I still actively played I seem to remember I initially did a lot of missions, then eventually got bored with them… I then got into industry and I think I used to manufacture rigs (I think) and sell. Towards the end of my time, before I stopped playing I had a POS, which then got destroyed while I was away. I don’t even remember what I had it for or what it did!
I was never into PVP, although I was always mildly intrigued by it. I also preferred to play solo, as I couldn’t commit to any sort of regular playing, logging on when required, doing stuff the corp required me to, etc… Either I never found a corp that suited me, or I wasn’t suited for any (more likely).
I want to get back into the game and figure out a new (again, most likely solo) career, but I’m struggling to even figure out what I want to do, let alone how to do it. I think I’m sort of trying to get into the mindset when I was quite fresh, but very much into the game… I had all sorts of ideas of what I wanted to do. But really struggling now, and feeling overwhelmed by the length of my absence, the fact I forgot so much and how much the game has changed.
I realise this is ridiculously vague… But if anyone has any suggestions, I’d like to hear them. There must be other players in a similar situation to mine. Also, pointers to some good guides, or articles that might help me in any way to come back.
