Greg Tanner born 2003.05.10 (total SP 375365604)
Would have been on release day but CCP held off the US release for 4 days, bogus reasons but I’ve been at it since then.
now if you include Beta, that was Nov 2002.
I was late joining because I hadn’t enjoyed beta and was busy with Planetside but got dragged across by friends from Mankind (the old french mmorts) in July.
Funny the game Mankind is largely forgotten and everyone talks about the Earth and Beyond exodus to Eve, or the Homeworld influx into beta but a lot of us came over from Mankind early on. Hooded Monk Mining Industries, Confederation of the Red Moon, Eye of God… a lot of Stain and Curse people in 2003 all came to Eve from Mankind. Including half of Black Nova, my corp from the BoB days.
Anyway, still playing this character 20 years later, he’s been my main ever since and likely will be until they turn the servers off.
my old characters were sold (at a time when characters were still valued, and not like now - the market for SP cans is so depressing), and I don’t like what is happening with the game at all, this is my opinion, sometimes I log in in order to just spin the ship in the hangar and see what people write in chats.
