Good game, I played it for ages. Made lots of videos of the combat in it, very time consuming though. You have to be skill training for about 4 months non stop before you can fly anything remotely decent.

I always knew I was an unwanted child when my bathtoys were an electric toaster and an alarm clock radio.http://www.heresy-online.net/forums/image.php?type=sigpic&userid=6067&dateline=1226929  578

Currently playing:
Venomspam Dark Eldar, Dragiowing, Russel Crowe and his purifier buddies, Space wolves, Heresy Worldeaters (Countas BA)

I played it for a bit...I thought it was odd how you get rewarded for not actually playing the game O_o Honestly I had enough money for a Battlecruiser and a fearsome loadout after about a week and a half of pulling jobs. Unfortunately, it would've taken me about 2-3 months to learn all the skills I needed to fly/shoot everything, so I stopped playing after I realized I blew 60 mil on escrows.

But it's a fun game if you're into that sort of thing!

it seems like half of the people i know play EVE and the other half play WOW.

BATTLE OF THE 3 LETTER TITLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

but seriously, it is a pretty solid game but just requires a large time commitment.

Hate to necropost, but I guess it's better than a clone of a pre-established thread.

Anyway, I will be reactivating my account by the end of the month for EVE Online. If anyone here on Heresy wishes to get an extended 21-day free trial from me, I will gladly offer some financial and strategic support once I'm active. I'll even throw in a nifty 25 million isk bonus towards anyone who decides to subscribe their account as the games buddy program give me 30 free days of gametime. I'll just need an email address to send the trial invitation to. The normal trial is only 14 days, I think, but the extra free week of gametime through the extended invite is gnarly if you decide to stick around.

If other EVE players are trying to get in on the buddy program thing, I'm sure we'll be civil enough to share the love. Either way, I'll be prowling the stars sometime shortly after the 25th. Not a bad deal, really. An extra free week of gametime and game cash along with whatever advice I can provide.

Just to confirm, learning skills are being removed and skill points used for them reimbursed this TUESDAY. Rumour is that they're also resetting these to a default (20/20/20/20/19 before implants, with Charisma the 19) giving everyone an extra remap to account for this.

Also, anyone looking for a corp soon to be focusing on wardecs and the "attitude correction" of Asteroid Fondlers PM me.

Wouldn't know. I don't pay for it.

It just so turns out that valuable ships in-game carrying valuable things tend to explode when I'm near, so I have the opportunity to buy PLEX in-game.

I played the 14 day trial, but after the first 3 days, I bought it. I love it, but I have to get a time card now. Good thing I put a crap load of skills to train.
