    I reactived my account after a long pause from the game cause there is a free 5 days now for players who had a full account once but quit playing.. also the next months pay for all who reactivate their acocunts is only about 10$..
    Now i am searching for a nice corp who is willing to take in a noob with playtime of only 2-3 month and 1.7mill skillpoints :)

    I've just bought the game, so I'm hoping some of you guys are still active. So, is it Caldari then?

    If you go Caldari, go missiles and active shield tanking all the way. I currently engage at 55km with my heavy missile launchers and I'm not 100% trained in them. Most NPCs that fly engage between 10-20k so you've got 35km of pummeling time to soften them up. Fly away from them to kite them and extend the time you're hitting them out of their range and all of a sudden most every mission is easy.

    Also, Caldari are a good starter for miners as the Bantam frigate and Osprey cruiser are two of the best miners before you have to specialize mining ships. Also, the Badger MK2 can haul the most for the least skills so its easier to get started mining with Caldari (my opinion). Plus, if you decide to never research mining specific ships, you can outfit a Caldari Battleship (the Rokh) with enough miners + mining gear that will make it the third best mining ship in the game.

    - minmatar have the same ships for same skills

    - badger has a very small cargo, best hauler to train for the least skills it's the amarr ones and the mammoth

    considering the time it takes to train for a retriever, i'd stick with it, since u don't need to jetcan mine as often with it

    in my opinion:
    mining - boring
    missions - boring
    pvp - where eve shines
    also, caldari is usually called eve easy mode, amarr/galletne medium mode, minmatar hardcore :)

    i fly all 4 races, so i know what i typed above ;)

    Minmatar may have the same skills and ships, but as you mentioned they are the 'hardcore' race. If he's looking to mine, it'd be silly to start as them when Caldari is regarded to be 'easy mode'. EVE has a steep enough learning curve as it is.

    I was incorrect in saying the Badger MK2 hauls the most for the least, as the Mammoth does haul more for relatively little more skills. However I'm currently hauling 80% of the Mammoth's total capacity (Mammoth with t2 expanders and rigs) days before I could ever get a Mammoth. I'd also like to point out the MK2 doesn't have 'a very small cargo', it only has less potential because of less low slots. Again, these are things he'd have to train for so he wouldn't see the full benefit until later with training. I'm currently training for a Mammoth, but until then my Badger MK2 works fine.

    It's up to you Wookie and what you'd like to do with the game.

    same time it takes to train a badger to be half decent, it's the same for the much better mammoth or even the sigil and bestower, heck even a iteron is better, duo to with industrial 5 having the best t1 hauler in game

    regarding caldari, i have a deep hate with them, since if u ever consider being usefull in pvp u need to train other race, 'cause they suck big time, and training caldari is like locking yourself in a wow like word :shadedshu

    Thx for the feedback. Seeing as I'm starting out here, Caldari does sound the better option for now. Besides, seems most of the TPU players are Caldari.

    Nothing stopping me switching later.

    EDIT: Just started a new toon. Nearseid/Caldari. Still doing tuts but away for the weekend.

    Double post I know, but no one else is chatting. Where does one go to find a good seletion of ships and resources? Trying to decide which path to specialise in.

    I dont mean to revive an old thread but Caldari isnt all that bad. Yea most ppl start out as Caldari but the main reason why I like them is Im a missile shooter and they have the best perks for them on their ships. Im still a noob at the game but the learning curve isnt THAT bad if you play space games like the X series. X3 Terran Conflict is kinda like eve but different type of ship movement and it has some of the similarities as EVE. But if any of yall still play EVE, add me in game, names Taz100420

    test, 1 2 3, account still activated, yey

    anyway caldari sucks, 'cause they suck at pvp, duo to missiles sucking for pvp, and shield tank not being the greatest thing for pvp, and eve is a pvp game mostly :)

    Oh of course Caldari equipment isnt that great for PvP, but whos to say that u have to use Caldari equipment for PvP? Do PvE for a while and build that money up to buy some other factions ship skills. I def. want Minmatar stuff, they all look like something Id pull out of Lake Erie next to Davis-Besse(most Ohioans know what I mean ;)) but they are tanks.

    Plus EvE is what ya make it to be.;) Trading, mining, PvP, etc.
