    Yeah tackling's all well and good but your frigate has little defense against "always hit lol" missiles.

    Just buy more frigates.

    i played with Merch I and it was just "hey guys let's mine" 24/7. And if you try to go out to kill people you die, and then people scream at you if you die because that's apparently bad for them and not for you.

    and it's just mine mine mine

    i gave EVE 20 bucks and all i got was a twenty dollar hole in my bank account.

    How long ago? We're a part of GoonSwarm now, not much mining, many more delicious tears.

    Months? Hahaha. You can be useful after less than a day, if your teammates aren't stuck-up elitist faggots.

    useful as fodder

    lvl3 frigate is useless against a damn tricked cruiser

    much less a BC

    Put on a web and scrambler, you'll do more good than three pimped-out cruisers in a nice fight. And your ships are effectively free.

    Pretty much all of January of this year. Everytime I asked someone where I need to go to join this big fight thing, I was asked what my skills and stuff were, and then I was told I'd need to wait probably another month before being useful.

    I spent the last week or two just logging on to change skills because that's what was suggested to me by my "mentor."

    If somebody says newbies aren't useful, call them a spy and insult their mother.

    1) I know it's hard to believe, but really, you are useful in group PvP day 1. One on one, not so much.
    2) I've never really played that much, so someone to take my hand is nice.
    3) After you finish the first few missions and put in the travel time to get near friends, you can really do whatever. No "months of training time" unless you refuse to play without being in a big ship.

    I liked playing the market. I was a little restricted by range, but I could make a decent amount of money on autopilot.

    I had gotten a guy even newer than me to play security so I could do some decent mining without a corp, but quit before we implemented it. It wouldn't have been much, but enough for me to get a decent mining ship pretty quick while I trained some combat skills.

    I'm tempted to just reactivate my account. I'm broke, because I gave all of my money away, but I have a few week's worth of skills.

    If you guys want to group up, I could make us a decent amount of money for starters. I'm pretty sure I outfit a few people faster then you'll get the skills once I get the money to re-buy my gear, at least until you start to specialize.

    I love EVE

    it has amazing graphics

    it has an amazing corp system with actual wars going on right now

    it has players mounting huge raids on enemy bases and destroying ships worth thousands of real dollars

    it has a great community

    unfortunately I am ADD with massively multiplayer games and thus got bored with it ten days in.

    That chart implies you need skill to play EVE Online.

    This is not factual.

    You just need to be able to tolerate oppressive boredom for hours on end.

    Travel time is not that bad if you leave autopilot off
    Set your course, warp to 0 at a gate, warp, and repeat

    From a newb area to wherever the Goons' Ryc'roll station was was only like an hour, tops

    well i mean that's true the first time but after that there are only so many places that goonswarm/merchi is fighting at once so odds are it's more like "where are you" "uu vxii" "where the fuck is that - oh nevermind that's two jumps be there in ten minutes"

    Long-distance travel in EVE is accomplished by killing yourself. I'm not even joking, you set your clone where you want to be, then self-destruct, and wake up somewhere else.

    Shit the Ryc'roll station was literally one jump from 1DP or whatever the fuck the shorthand was for the galaxy they were working on when I played
    So just get some contracts and extra ships
    Set Ryc as your respawn and bam there you are
    Clone jumping makes it even easier if other people help out with ISK
