gotta add this to the top because there are morons out there, i lived in null(delve), factional warfare low sec,high sec, i joined ♥♥♥♥ty corps, good corps, blank corps, i know what i am saying,
alas i am not a 'veteran', i only started 5 months ago, i have 1 pew pew toon which can fly t2/t3 and 1 indy toon, here it comes;
if you are new at eve, think real hard and decide if you really want to play this game and how dedicated you are, learn the races / read the wiki like its the bible, figure out who you wanna be, after that pay 6 months in front, fill up your training queue, learn the ropes meanwhile (somewhere between 2. month and 4. month), and come back when you are able to at least fly a t2.
yes i basically told you to wait 6 months before playing.
did i told you 'pay your account with isk' thing is a lie because you cant get that much isk every month as a beginner?
because if you are new to eve, this means you are the smallest fish in the ocean, and this is a 'pay to wait' game.
other then that i recently learned some facts about eve that hit me in the face with a big rock,
for example they released 'train this skill to train skills faster' skillbooks once god knows when, which means people whom started before then you, are much more powerfull then you think they are.
they released all T2 original blueprints with a 'lottery(??!)' system once, you cant obtain a T2 original blueprint except buying it from another player(which costs billons of isk)
there are people out there who has 10 miner alts, and multiboxing with all of them, which means if you are an indy toon you cant compete with that guy whatever you do, no one cares as long as the multiboxers pay.
there are goons out there who will do every type of shet to you because he thinks in his little mind that he is 'superior'
i paid nearly 400 bucks to this game and still i cant say 'i am doing it' , i dont think anyone is doing it, sometimes the game feels blank, just empty because everyone is doing the same thing, some manufacture ships and sell them to manufacture more ships and sell them as well, some people shoots other people so he gets a killreport which fells like a cheap achievement, they said 'everything in this game is player creation, there is an solid economy' but damn they didnt said everyone is doing the same thing over and over again until they puke their brains out.
they say this is sandbox, i dont think it is because all you can do at space is 'warp to - jump - align - burn towards - dock' this is it, all the manuevers.
everyone fly the same ships, there is no customization because if there was one CCP couldnt sell their 'XYZ edition' ships at AUR store.
fitting the ships are kinda open to imagination but it just doesnt cut it, because when i undock my ship is just one of the ♥♥♥♥ty vexors out there going to do the same frigging thing over and over again, ratting belts doing sites is boring, seriously it doesnt feel like PVE, it just feels blank.
PVP is boring as well, there is our Fleet Commander Yells-A-Lot , 'do this do that and kaboom because i fuked up' you will feel like a drone in fleets mark my words, just a fukin drone, you cant do solo pvp oh no sir you cant do nothing if you are alone, because the loneliest guy at eve will be flying with his alts multiboxing the shet out of the game meanwhile you try to do rat belts on your own.
the worst part is not just miner multiboxers, tengu pilots with their scouts controlled by the same person, market bots, spam programs,
market is being feeded minerals by NPC corps, manipulated by CCP,
i literally saw 'xyz 1 xyz 2 xyz 3 xyz 4' named pilots in a low sec roaming fleet.
idiot people who cant just understand the fact that game is broken and this ♥♥♥♥ needs to be fixed.
long story short, if you are going to become an eve pilot, think this through i could've done so much better things with 400 bucks , you must really want this to enjoy eve.
after CCP admits 'multiboxing is hacking and goons are ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s and mittani is just a piece of shet and they did some wrong moves with the game in their past and they want to lower the price of PLEX until the game evolves to something better' , i will edit this review.
