Anyone play it?

A few of my military buddies and I play it, in our own little corp. We don't honestly play on many of the large game scales, but have a few manufacturers and I fly around in my pretty exhumers. Mining and playing achaea is a profitable combination. I'm that guy that harvests all your high sec ores in a few minutes.

I don't think me or any of my buddies will leave the corp, but we're always looking for allies and profitable trades.

Anyone want to fly together?

    I used to play this and I had fun. Until the alliance my corp was in, not of their own free will I might add, were war dec'd and no one wanted to protect the miners building their crap. So the corp left the alliance along with several other corps to try and form their own alliance only to be backstabbed by the new alliance, as it was forming. THAN! The leader of the corp decided to start some crap with another corp, mind you were allianceless and have like 3 defenders for our miners, causing the guy who basically ran the corp with the CEO to quit to become a lowsec fighter for some corp he made with his friends and than we had absolutely no defense when mining and a war about to start with only 2 combat ready pilots....THEN! The crap hits the fan I talk a bunch of crap on Miner chat and a friend of mine invites me to her feeder corp which was a mining corp but they mined ice....IF YOU HAVE EVER MINED ICE YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! I was basically the only more miner with no low sec access and than it happened.....James 315 and his CODE took over Gallente astroid mining in most places and without any ships to help me I was stuck solo ore mining with ice miners and ended up having to take my chances wormhole mining. So I quit and came back to Achaea.

    (╯° _°)╯︵ ┻━┻ Being a solo miner is impossible in that game, as it should be. I didn't feel like specializing it was easier to start up Ach again :P

    I used to play it, mostly because of the interesting universe and desire to roleplay. Most people just wanted to be assholes, however, and it wore me down quickly. Among other things.

    And you won't understand the cause of your grief...

    I can't imagine playing a game where a large portion of the population are just assholes operating under the pretense of roleplay.

    There is no roleplay in Eve, there is only you entering the wrong gate at the wrong time.

    Just started playing it again recently, joined my old corp and it's pretty nice, we're in an alliance now in Providence area. Had some fun pvp ops the other night, even though I felt mostly clueless as to what to do the whole time but I warp scrambled/tackled the enemy ships while the others pew pew'd them :). Hit me up in game if you want- Jason La'Mosea.

    As an aside, I did play EVE, but my interest waned when they changed the exploration stuff. My nullsec profits went from 1bil an hour to maybe 300mil a day. Lack of NPC spawns in exploration sites, too... suddenly every nullsec site had a cloaked up pirate semi-afk in it waiting for people to show up. Bletch.

    I was a member of TEST and then Goonfleet for a little while in a friend's corp, did some nullsec stuff and had a bit of fun with it, but I really got tired of playing 12 hours a day to earn as much ISK as the higher tier alliance big-wigs were making in a few minutes from back-end station trading.

    The combat was fun, though. Waiting 10+ hours for it to happen for 10-15 minutes sucked horribly though.

    I made a ninja gas miner acct a couple of months ago for giggles and had some fun with that again, but I can't see myself ever really playing it again seriously.

    I tried it out about two months ago, was making like 45mil/hr in my first week of mining/salvaging in nullsec. Got in with a good crew that was part of Pandemic. Just got so bored with the hurry up and wait to be effective in nullsec pvp. Could f'ing buy anything I wanted, just not fly it effectively.

    I'm making something akin to 51mil an hour gas mining in lowsec.

    Goddamnit Aepas, this is your fault. Why am I playing this again.

    @Fitz: You can be pretty effective with fairly low SP in frigates, you just have to fly them really well. Minmaxing your orbit and transversal velocity, that kind of thing. Especially in a gang - you can tackle a T3 pretty effectively in a Rifter or an Incursus as long as you've got friends to kill him before you run out of MWD cap. I actually prefer frigates over any other class - being ridiculously fast while every other ship is lumbering and slow feels great, and once you get your navigation and weaponry skills pretty high you can really start doing some awesome stuff with them.

    I'm a highsec miner Biatch. All my money comes from production... NEED MORE VELDSPAR, ALWAYS MORE VELDSPAR.

    I normally make about 20mil an hour in minerals, but the big payoff is when you make a few ships. Can always use some boosters though! Love shooting up stuff like I'm some kinda junkey.

    Name's Tobin Delascy if you ever want some help jumping into lowsec!

    I snuck into a lowsec sector in Lonetrek the other day after having found a Golden Cytoserocin cloud (which are worth upwards of 50mil and can be cleared in hour in a Venture, solo) and was happily mining away, minding my own business.

    Then, two Cyno fields pop up in my overview. Local increases from 6 people to nearly 30 at once. I actually felt my heart sink as I dscanned again and saw like twice the number of ships pop up. Thankfully, it was just a small fleet passing through on their way to nullsec, but by god, gas mining is pretty terrifying sometimes.

    I kind of love Eve for that. Long periods of doldrum which are then interspersed with a few frantic minutes.
