So where is everybody in the game? I'm experimenting with ship configs along with plans of just exploring the space I haven't visted.

Also DragonfireKai I may take up your invite, sorry I couldn't answer yesterday as I've been more often than not afk due ot moving stuff out and in. Call it Major summer cleaning.

Just started over after a pretty long hiatus. I didn't get exceedingly far last time I was in-game, and that character was split between too many paths. He had combat skills, hauling skills, mining skills, etc. It was just a mess.

So now I'm Janni th'Gait (stupid 2 word limit on names), a Gallente pirate-in-training. I'm tooling around in Empire, training my skills and hitting up low-level complexes in my destroyer for salvage and ISK.

I'm still appalled that I didn't start with Electronics or Engineering. All newbie characters should start with level 3 of each, they're too important. Having 5/5 Small Hybrid Turret right off the bat is nice, though.

Hey, I just started yesterday, and I've got to say, this has the potential to hook me for a long time. But I have one question:

I've heard you can actually pay for the price of a subscription using in-game cash. One, how much does it cost, and two, where can I make this transaction?

(Also, I'm a Gallente-Gallente-Immigrant, I'm thinking I'll become a pirate, since I have always loved pirates anyways. Fights with my paladin-esque policing tendencies, but hey, I play the good guy in all my other games, eh? Any advice on how to become a pirate and how to be a good one?)

you'll need equipment. It'll be a while before you can start attempting piracy without getting smote by escorts. And don't try doing anything illegal in a system with a security index over .5, you will die. I'd say, come join the OCR Corp, look me up in game, and I'll help you start to get set up.

So yeah I like the new changes including the GUI. In a more familiar term, I can now "overclock" the modules of my ship but with the risk of making them utterly useless until I can repair them at a station. Makes for last resort moments more intense, especially if without the overheat option, sometimes a battle is already decided, with overheat I can have a good chance of winning but basically become gimped for a while in the end.

What features do players here enjoy?

Oh, definitely. I wasn't going to try to go solo or anything, just joining a pirate corp or group or something. Sorry if I'm a little new to this whole thing, but I am interested enough to stick with it.

To access the OCR Channel, click on the button where it says channels, and from there click on the button "Join/Create Channel" and type with caps ---> OCR . From there if some one is on the channel, you'll see the person's portait on the right hand column. If no one is on it, then you'll have created the OCR channel and you just have to wait till others join.

as for finding the OCR Corp, click on the map, then click on search, type in OCR and there should be an entry that mentions it; right click on it and make it your destination. From there click on the capital A on ur main screen and your ship will fly/sail (however you percieve it) to the corp's area.

Loving the boni that SB's are receiving. Not to mention faction missiles with the equivalent of T2 - but no drawbacks. Love seeing 700+ on structure with a missile.

This should answer your question.

Keep in mind - you'll need approximately 150-180m ISK for a 30 day time card (ie, very hard to get even whilst soloing lvl 2-3 missions in empire space. If you have access to a battleship and 0.0 space - you might be able to rat a week straight and get your iskies to play for free).

Well, that's it for me. My trial period ended today, and I can't log back in until I start paying for the game. Which I can't do at the moment. So for the time being, I can't play. :-(

:idea:

... Unless I make a new trial account... Hm...

... Or perhaps someone here can pay for my account until I can start paying it myself? :puppyeyes::razz:

I lost my destroyer... I got trapped stupidly by player rats.

How were you trapped by player rats? One was specifically using jammers and knocking out your targetting system, another draining your systems of capacitor power and the others were just hammering you away..?

Hopefully you were insured... if ya need any help I can sell you stuff half-priced if you can wait for a couple of days...

(just a couple of more days till my ISP is online...)

Later if you want, we can form a gang and go after them player rats...

Okay, I was going through 0.0 space and I saw a cyclone attacking a smaller ship. The cyclone had a bounty on him, so I jumped in the fray, the small ship seemed to be holding its own, so I assumed 2v1 would work better.

Then the small ship warp jammed me.

As for the gear, it only cost about 2 million to get my replacement going. It's not as optimised as it was before, but I don't mind. I'm about 18 days from a Wolf, so I just need to get 15 millions more or less.

Haha, clever! It surprises me to no end how deep this game can be.
