    I'm probably going to end up regretting it in some way, but I'm downloading the client now. I first saw / heard about EVE 2 years ago or so, and narrowly avoided it, being certain it would destroy me. Plus, I only had access to dial up at the time, which would have definitely destroyed me. Good thing I decided to start playing WoW instead... :roll:

    See ye starside.

    Tell ARSED we're coming after AZN.

    Also, the trick to playing around DT on a daily basis is to go hunting for faction spawns.

    EDIT: But not Angel faction spawns.

    I think he means his account on the Goonfleet forum. When your account lapses from not paying the bills or you just don't log in for long enough, most corps like MerchI or Goonfleet will kick you from the corp back to your noobie corp as a matter of housecleaning (no point having lots of inactive members cluttering up your corporation). When you get kicked from a corp in Goonswarm, your forum account gets deleted as a matter of opsec.

    CCP aren't going to start deleting inactive accounts any time soon, because appart from anything else they use those numbers to artificially inflate their statistics.

    Ahh, fair enough. I was just afraid CCP had started to abandon their dormant account policy, and had started nuking idle accounts.

    edit: When I stopped playing, I was in IRON. I strongly doubt I'll still be there, but I'll be parked up in a station down south somewhere. Joy.

    When I say 'south', I basically mean 'below Jita', since I never used to go down that way anyway. I think I'm somewhere down around Querious, but it's been more than a few months since I played. When I do start up again, I'll either hook up with Merch, or with the corp my brother's in which is also down in your area, I believe.

    I've been playing Eve on and off since retail. I stopped for a long time because I had my first daughter. Now that my life is more stable I've returned to Eve a few months back. However I've been in Empire space just running missions and I know that I am missing a large portion of this game.

    This thread has gotten me very excited. Even though I'm at work I am logged in an flying my Abaddon over to Amarr VII to fill out an application.

    Thank you for this opportunity. :)

    I still love this game, but when i played a month or two ago, I kinda jumped in with you guys at Merch way too fast. I got my teeth handed to me in my only pvp sortie, mostly due to my own mistakes as a rookie. That, combined with a lack of a mic (something that's keeping me from playing most online games), kinda killed my interest for the time being.

    I dunno. It just feels awkward without knowing people.

    See, that is part of the joy, the entire point is to go out, in a cheap ship and Alluah Ackbar the enemy sometimes. Hell we do it in expensive ships on occasion just because it is fun (I reference the "useless ship" op that I was on recently, go blaster cormorant) once you can relax, and learn to enjoy blowing up, the game gets to be a whole lot more fun.
    Also, since I got Mario Galaxy, I havn't logged in to the game in days, hooray for offline skill training though, for when I return, I will be interdictor ready.

    I use the shitty usb headset that came for the original SOCOM for PS2. Trust me, you don't need anything fancy/expensive, and being able to shoot the shit with people makes a huge difference.

    Not all of us are - the ratio of carebear to pvp'er is much more balanced in MRCHI than most of Goonswarm, and out of those pvp'ers maybe half are actually griefing. Hell, I don't think Rhonyn has undocked in anything other than an industrial or freighter in the last 6 months :lol:

    You pretty much described what life in our station system is like. As far as SA goes, just close the alliance and shared channels (except for the one for spotting hostiles) and you'll never have to interact with them if you don't want to. That said, the goons get a bad rap; a lot of people who started off as "fuck goons" end up really liking them.

    Goonswarm is fueled by unrestrained humor, drama, hazing, and mocking pubbies. It turns some people off, but if you can roll with it, the goons are more fun than any other two alliances combined.

    Holy crap an EVE thread in G&T, wonders never cease.

    But yeah come join us, the major problem with EVE right now is that if you're American there aren't enough people to shoot, but hopefully in a month or two half of our allies (KOS, SMASH, etc) will be told they're no longer our allies and the shooting can commence.

    If you're really broke, don't pay for eve for one month, and use that money to buy a headset. Then when the next month rolls around, you will have more skillpoints and also a reason to use them.

    I just checked in-game and that office is still up. Make sure you're in the right station: Ishisomo VIII - Propel Dynamics Factory.

    You're certain that your system meets the specifications to run the client?

    Also Thorne you CAN use autopilot but because it drops you 15km away from the gate, it's slow as hell and it leaves you vulnerable.

    For you second question, there is your autopilot but the catch is it warps you 30km off the gate so you have 30 seconds to 2 minutes of using sublight engines to 'slowboat' to the gate's jump range. During this time you are extremely vulnerable should a hostile be near by.

    So it's cool for you to do it until the moment you get accepted into the corp since other corps/allainces have declared war on Goonswarm. Meaning a handful of people can attack you anywhere. I was just in empire and every few systems there were a couple of war targets.

    In short: never ever use the fucking auto pilot.

    15km, actually. Which is still terrible for anything slower than, like, a Vagabond.
