    After the 'EVE coming to Steam thread' I'd be interested to find out how many people play EVE online- and I'd love to add some of you to my address book so we can join into a fleet at some point.

    Here's the Corporation I'm with if you want to get into one (regardless of skill level): Apply to "Ihatalo Academy" in Allamotte if you're interested- quote "Kravotir knows me" in your application and you'll get right through.

    Please list your own names and I can add them to a list.
    Awaiting your replies with anticipation!

    Did you enjoy the trial? To be perfectly honest I personally believe they should extend the trial to three weeks. By the end of that you know whether you are the sort of person who will enjoy EVE online or not. I personally was attracted by the self sufficient economy in EVE supported by its players, and the corporation control aspect of the game which encourages teamplay to get anywhere.

    Large Sci-fi space game. Extremely technical and frankly one of the best and most immersing games I've ever played.

    ktr, a month ago I would have agreed with you. I played Wow for about a week before I was completely sick of it's tediousness, and swore I;d never buy into this month per month fee BS. However, try it ans you might like it. I thought, what the hell, I'll give it a try, I mean it is a trial. So I did, and I loved it. £8 a month is much less than Wow, and you get discounts as soon as you go into 3 months+ subscriptions. I also know many who buy their Timecards with ISK(EVE money) made in-game. So they don't spend a thing.
    It's worth every penny, however, if you like a truly challenging and complex gaming environment, with almost limitless pathways to choose.

    What are the specs you have to have for this game?

    Also, @azazel, what is with your avatar of the homosexual fruit fly bird thing?

    http://www.eve-online.com/download/windows.asp - Check this out for requirements. They are very low if you get the classic version, and the premium one has plenty of options to tinker with. I play at Max gfx on the Premium gfx version with no lag at all (4xAA and 16xAF).

    If you or anyone needs any help join and add me to the address book and I'd be happy to help out anyone in anyway I can. Even financially in-game :rolleyes:

    I suggest if you want any help to go with Gallente faction as their starting base is near me.

    It's just a base skills thing. It could decide what sort of ships you run in, but not always.
    Here's a quick lowdown on what the factions ships are like.

    Gallente: Close Quarters and heavily armored, but can be slow.
    Minmatar: Fastest ships out there, and go with the 'as many weapons as possible' approach. Weakly armored
    Caldari: Missile Gunboats capable of taking anyone down from afar. Lack close range prowess and sustained combat strength.
    Amarr: Laser weapons make it customizable on damage, and hugely armored. Medium range.

    You can change ships- just by learning new skills which can take a few days.

    That BSOD is being caused by your Realtek drivers. Try updating them. To prove this is the problem disable onboard sound in the BIOS and it gets fixed. There are a multitude of people who never worked this out in the forums, after telling them all how to fix it, 1% accepted I was right and they found solutions, the other 99% refuse to try and are still looking for an answer. Why are some people so stupid and bigoted?.. Ah well little rant over. Drivers fixed it for a friend- other than that you may have to get a new soundcard to get it to work which is obviously going to be annoying.

    When I played there were some more differences. Gallente mostly had huge drone bays. Minmatar were mixed with guns and missiles launchers, could be turned into dangerous snipers or decent missile boats with repeating thingies as backup. Few med slots though. Caldari were the shield tanks, few low slots. Amarr were the armor tanks, usually no missile hardpoints. Couldn't fight and tank at the same time due to battery draining on weapons.

    I quit 2-3 years ago though, it's not worth it to start again for me due to skills. Starting over would be hell since I couldn't do what I want like I used to. I played from the start so I was always up to date with skills. Flew a Tempest mainly with all relevant skills at lvl 5 (T2 1400MM for long range killing or 800mm's with armor tank for some close range ownage, probably outdated by now)
    Anyway, I sold my account,my other got banned, along with the lack of skills on a new account it's a waste of my time.

    Your attributes of the ships are still there but I didn't want to complicate things with anyone new by saying things like drones and armor and shield tanking. Capacitor's would also be completely meaningless for anyone new to the idea of EVE, thats the reason I left them out. Gallente also have also almost no Missile hardpoints on their ships, although I don't know if thats a change.

    I would totally start up again if it weren't for the years of lost skill training time. I was in beta and played for 6-8 months after. In fact, my corp merged with and took over the running Terrell corp at about the same time I quit.

    I loved the constant terror of getting podded by M00 at every gate LOL but it got too old too fast, and CCP just wasn't adding any new BPs/content at that point either, so all we did was fly around...and......look for stuff to mine....and mine it.....
