EvE Online

I've been wanting to play EVE again. I only played the trial and I liked the whole "oh, I'll plan my flight path, and go on auto pilot while I'm in the shower."

It really felt like I was flying that ship.

Dammit, you got me convinced.

Okay, so, has anyone got a good plan just to startup? I really messed up when I played the trial and maybe if there was an introduction (like which skills and what type of character for what action) it would be nice. However, I think that the approach is a lot more forgiving than in WoW or some other MMORPGs where a single mistake means you have to either change character or change style of play.

Well, I don't know exactly what you have in mind, but this might help a little; it's towards the bottom of the page. Then again, it might be useless to you. Like I said, I'm not entirely sure what you're asking about.

Hmmm, I had this miner guy all planed out. Then I realized mining was boring, so I got myself a bounty hunter type of character. The money is starting to come in much better, and with my high skills, I'll be able to upgrade to a better ship tonight again, if it all goes well.

Right now I'm flying a frigate, what would be the logical continuation, like a fast and agile ship that would be easy to start flying?

Seems I'm "stuck" on frigates until I can train an assault/interceptor class ship. I think what I have now is a Minmatar Slasher, its the only name that sounds remotely familiar.

Since I really like speed and mobility, I think I'm gonna try to figure out how to get my hands on a "Claw".

what type of frigate? I'm currently flying a caldari ship called the Merlin; overall very sweet assault frigate but lacking in a way of real speed and armor.

Actually I'm trying to startup a pharmaceutical but that will be put into motion much later. Right now I'm pretty much the guy that makes his own equipment. My problem being me unable to really find the minerals to mine that I need to make stuff like rockets and ships.

You ought to go for a ship that has a good ammount of energy in its capacitor, especially if u rely on energy type weapons along with addons such as shield boosters/repair systems like me. I actually rely on rocket/missle weaponry for that reason...

Well, like I said, I can't remember the name, I'm pretty sure it's a Minmatar ship, since it looks like a junker. And slasher sounds familiar. I nicknamed it "spacebug" due to its look (4 "wings" on the back).

I'm just doing the easy 20 000 isk missions (I evaluate the difficulty by looking at the reward, if there's a better way, please tell me.). For now I stick to 1.0 0.9 space, so that I can figure out how to maximize my systems. I already lost my noob ship once, I don't want to lose my bug. Since my skills are almost all geared toward small projectile turrets, I'll stick to that kind of weaponry, supported by one missile launcher. Tonight I'll be able to post my name and the specs of my bug. As well as my skills. I just want to be sure I'm not doing some dumb mistake like I did on my trial account.

I still go by my forum name, "Schwaltzvald", just without the qoutes. Plus I could help ya out with weaponry supplies just as u can help me with some pirate killing. I may even be able to assist on some bountys with special equipment on my ships such as anti-targeting, radar etcetera. Just takes some time to work those skills as well as getting the materials to make them :)

At least this way you can focus on training the skills you want to actually work on without worrying about getting a particular skill you can't even train yet while needing it at the same time

I'm usually on late in the afternoon to evening from 6pm till whenever. It's a very casual game so sometimes I may be afk. Just let me know in advance what time you'll be around or be needing something and I ought to be there.

I'm very casual as well. I usually log on after supper, so around 6PM eastern. I'll add you to my buddy list tonight and we'll be able to work out some sort of collaboration deal. After some research I think I,ll try and get myself a rifter as soon as possible. Either way, I,m sure the other EVE players here will want to try and get in contact with other OCR people.

We (radical and I) could use a guy/gal who likes to mine minerals and ore; as once that is established I can then manufacture/invent/research etcetera stuff and in return for the hard work for providing the raw materials, you'd get free stuff. depending on what is provided/needed between us...

More or less we can negotiate on any deals if necessary.

Yeah I could have posted this on the eve forums but I wanted to try to see if any OCRer would join us first.

Please guys, lets make it work, we could be a force to reckon with.

And last night I was patrolling the .8 asteroid belts and I realized how deadly my ship was. I'm slowly fitting every slot with an item and then I'll work on upgrading the gear I got on. As of now, I don't mind escorting a miner in dangerous areas... well, not much in 0.0 space, but anywhere where rats could be a danger for a miner but not for a fighter. I'm slowly testing the capacities of my ship, and well, I have a hard time cycling through targets, I kill my first target before my second target is locked on...

Oh and I'm training for this:

So Schwaltzvald, if you can get the blueprints, I'd help you cover the costs for it.

Cost of the blueprint itself or the actual ship..? Some may see the seemingly astronomical price of blueprints hindering, but in the long run, once having a hold on a set, I would be able to churn out many at a time as I progress in the game. Saving financial resoures in the long run as well as assisting the team/corp.

I tend to look at the long term.

As for the ship, I assume you want the Stiletto variety or just the original..?

At most it seems I meet all the requirements to actually build it except for maybe one skill. Even then it would still take time to collect all the raw materials; I ought to have trained the skill by then to be able to make one when everything else is ready.

Well, its a tech 2 ship. I won't be ready to fly it until I max out Frigate and Evasive Maneuvering. I think that alone will take a while. I saw some for sale at about 5-10 million. Dunno the profit margin on this one. I think that since we are starting this collaboration thing, I,ll have to buy form the market a bit more. Once we get more resources, then we'll start selling stuff.

Also, I really want the claw. 4 high slots, with 3 turret points seems to go well with my current weapon configuration. But if I do the math quickly, I'll be able to fly it in about 3 weeks. So again, maybe buying it will be the best idea. We should start with cheaper and smaller blueprints, stuff that we can get mats for easily.

Also, if you want to mine in .8, I could always replace my Howitzer and put in a mining laser for those runs. It wont be much, but the both of us could get some mats (my 130m3 capacity however wont get us much materials...)

EDIT: While the Wolf http://www.eve-wiki.net/index.php?title=Wolf might be interesting as well, I think the training of mechanics and engineering to level 5 as well as frigate 5 would be a little... limiting. However, that thing could armor tank like nobody's business. The only thing that is kinda iffy is the speed. Especially if I armor tank and upgrade the armor...

Hey everyone, I just re-activated my account but if you need anything hauled, like minerals, I can haul 27,000 m3 in my Iteron Mark V :-D, I've also got a covetor with 5 Vespa drones that can pop .6 and above pirates, so if you need any minerals, just drop me an EVE mail, and we can work something out. My EVE name is Ildaris

Oh yeah, I can suck a belt dry with some help in about 4-5 hours depending on the size

I think we got the head of the department of acquisitions...

Damn, an Iteron Mark V and a god danged Covetor. I could cover you in .6 space, which I usually try to avoid until I can get a good insurance on my Rifter.

Hmmm, I think we'll have to get together and set up a plan for what we exactly want to do. As I said, I can't mine in my rifter, but I could always offer protection, but you seem to be able to take care of yourself. Although I never really tested the limits of my ship, yesterday I patrolled in .8 and was never in any actual danger. Maybe I'll try a .7 to see how it goes...

Yeah, I've found that within the different races, the security means different things. Take gallente space for example, I was attacked more than once in a .8 by Serptis pirates, while in Caldari space, Gurista's don't start attacking till .7 or .6. Heh, if you want to test your ship, try going into a .4

Btw, what timezone are you in Schwaltzvald? Just so I can get a rough estimate of when I'd need to be on. Better still just use EVE time or GMT

I should upgrade my insurance and try that, my skills are still under my clone's rating.

Like RD I'm on at the same time between the hours of 6pm EST till whenever I decide I go to bed. Usually when no one's around to talk with though I'd go afk or do a little velspar mining while making a sandwich.

The funny thing is sometimes on a kill mission I'd have myself orbiting an asteroid or what ever I can orbit at the time and have the enemies chase me while I'm shooting them down. I'd be checking my email while doing so :) lol

I've been playing for about a year and a half or so. Go ahead and message me ingame if you'd like, or if you have any questions go ahead and ask. My ingame name is Derelikt and I've basically been 'lone wolf'ing it since I started, operating out of gallente space around Oursulaert.
