Been a long time. I doubt many even remember me from my old glory days, 6 or 7 years ago. But lately I’ve had the itch to come back. My schedule is extremely flexible, but I don’t know that I can commit to daily play times right now.
Any suggestions? Anything I should absolutely try?
You can hunt people who have killrights on their heads:
Not sure if you count as a pirate or an enforcer if you do that though.
You can also suspect bait people for example miners, mission runners, explorers and whatever else by stealing their loot and/or popping their MTUs.
Speaking of MTUs if you are not bored of that minigame you can scan down abandoned ones and blow them up to keep the space lanes clear of navigational hazards, some might have juicy loot in them if you’re lucky.
You can also steal loot from gankers in Jita and elsewhere.
Someone already mentioned ganking itself as an option too. Of which you might try targeting abyss runners who often have blinged fits. Though this probably requires multiboxing or mates to fleet with.
Playing versus other players? Versus NPCs? Piloting your ship? Piloting excel, blueprints and piles of goods?
Playing with other players? Or solo?
What was it that you enjoyed doing last time? And are you looking to do something similar to that, or want to try something new?
Personally I enjoy black ops fleets and other fleet combat in null sec. And my alliance has just entered a new war, so I assume there’s going to be a lot of PvP content in the coming weeks or months.
But there are many other forms of gameplay you could try. You could try the new abyssal PvE sites, if challenging PvE is a thing you would like to try.
Also since the last time you played a new region has been added to the game (or taken from existing systems): Pochven, which has some really nice ISK making and PvP opportunities for groups of players.
Most things that were available then are still out there - incursions, exploration, escalations, etc.
Some new things are:
the new player experience (AIR NPE and AIR Careers) so could be interesting to try that out with a new pilot.
the Triglavian invasion/Edencom changes and the new Pochven area
Abyssal Site running (related to Triglavian invasion)
Some updates for Faction Warfare are supposedly in the works, but may be a bit before we see the result.
You could also look in the general forum for post on EVE Pandora which is a new player-run method for creating missions and content, or check out Githany Red’s posts on New Eden Police Force for anti-ganking.
Last two times I was a wormhole CEO. Grew a corp big enough to live in a C5. I do not want the CEO life again, even if we don’t have to live in POS’s anymore.
I kind of like wormholes. I might go look for some cloaky hunter shenanigans, but I also like friends.
Right now I’m probably going to hang with some of the NPSI communities and try to figure myself out. It’s weird. I have a pretty flexible schedule, but I’m a working novelist now and have quite a few irons in the fire. I have to steward my game time closely.
