I just gave WoW up, and I'm building a Corp in EVE. It can be boring if your flying solo, but gets pretty entertaining with friends. And I like how differant it is from other MMO's.

I did too, even though since Burning Crusade (and getting out of college) I have been playing less and less. I just think Blizzard's design goals for the playerbase in Cataclysm contradicted themselves. Harder encounters are great, but slogging through two separate raids where you had to spend inordinate time clearing excessively difficult trash meant less time learning encounters and more time just getting to the boss.

I just gave WoW up.

As did I...just got so bored with the game and couldn't face yet another grind for epic gear just to have it replaced by the first green item in the next expansion. Haven't played since march 14th but I do have a good replacement....that's when I started beta testing Star Wars: The Old Republic. I'm having more fun with it, even with all the bugs, than I ever did in WoW.

I'm waiting for SWTOR, i just went back to WoW for the hell of it, no real reason other than being bored and SC2 being fucked up and not loading.

with Cata I think Blizzard spent way to much time on the 1-60 revamp and not enough time on 80-85 content, I expect this x-pack to be short lived compared to Wrath

It's a fun game. Massively huge. It does have a monthly fee, but the game itself is free to download. You don't buy it, and then keep paying for it.

It's a very hard game to learn though. If you do pick it up, get with me or MountainMan. Your gonna want the help or you'll get frustrated with it real early.

For what? Mission running? Shit, unless you have Gallente battleship lvl 5, stick with a myrmidon. I would personally train battlecruiser to lvl 5 before I started for BS lvl 5 anyhow. Plus with a myrm, you can run better quality lvl 3 missions and make more ISK per hour than running crappy lvl 4's.

I've got 6.5m skill points. No way am I able to do some of these lvl 3's in my Myrm. It just can't take the beating yet.

Then you are doing it wrong. The Myrm, with proper skills can easily tank lvl 4's. Have you downloaded EveMon (http://evemon.battleclinic.com/) yet? It is an awesome tool to help you stay on track with skills. As a Gallente player, you need to get your core armor skills up first, then your energy management skills maxed followed by your drone skills.

Trust me when I say to save your ISK. Without those proper skills, you will even lose a domi in a lvl 3.

I'm working on the armor skills, but I'm also building a corp right now, so got other demands on my training time as well. I can tank lvl 2's, and have done a couple lvl 3's now without to much difficulty. But the Domi is still my end run ship.

Meh... it's a lot less complicated in FPS's. PVP in WoW took more skill then just having quicker reflexes then your opponent. You had to know what your class could do, what the other class could do, your best skills out of your myriad of abilities that would shut them down, and how to avoid theirs.

FPS's are more akin to straight "ganking" then true PVP.

Did you move out to Ahala?

There is a number of factions you can start with, all within 5-10 jumps of that area. I'd just fly around and acquiant yourself right now. If I see you on in the next day or two I'll show you which guys have lvl 1 missions. The good news for you is tomorrow their revamping the agent system which will make it easier for you to gain standing, and rewards.

I work with three NPC Corps out there. Ministry of Internal Order, Theology Council, and Core Complexion. There are a couple others though.

Of course, real life always comes first. But we got the potential to make some major cash for the corp with what Mau is proposing, and it's gonna take the combined effort of everyone in it, so whatever help you can offer would be appreciated. Getting into a barge will take a little while though if you are just starting out with the skill set for it.

No worries. Fitting it will be a little pricey as well, so I'll probably drop you some cash anyways.

We'll probably start running some corp mining ops, so it'll be a group of several of us going out at once, instead of just solo mining. Bit more entertaining when it goes like that.

Delivery is easy. Probably Amarr however, they might be willing to pay more for delivery to Faswiba, a low sec area.... Which isn't a problem per se, Faswiba is pretty low stress for low sec.

I will be logging in tonight and get some more details. How much do you think you guys could mine per week?

We're just 6 jumps from Amarr, so that would be very easy. And a corp as a whole? Not really sure. Though I've got a few guys out mining right now getting a head start on this stuff for you. It's just a couple retrievers and a coveter right now. Haven't gotten any of the hulks or Orca into the game yet.

Alright, just a few of us managed to mine up more then 50m tritanium and a good bit of mexallon tonight. Tomorrow night is a scheduled op so we should have atleast 6 or 7 ships out there and we're shooting for more then double the take we had tonight.

I don't know if we'll be able to meet your total demand, but we'll get a damn good chunk of it.

Don't even bother with the Procurer, it's useless. Spend the extra day getting to the Retriever.

I just crunched some numbers, and with my Domi I can put 6 Mining II lasers, and 5 Mining Drones, and I can still mine more then in my Retriever.

Their the way to go until you get to strip miners. A Retriever will be a solid purchase for you mining wise, until you get into a BS (at least a Domi). I'm half tempted to change my fitting up tonight to use the BS.

When doing mining ops, you just need as much cargo as you can chop in one cycle. You jettison a can, and just fill it up as your cycles run through. Then one of our designated haulers will come buy, empty the can, and take it away.

If your on later tonight, i'll help you with fitting it out for maximum return.

Current corp policy is that you can mine, and sell the ore to the corp. Well, that was made before I came in and started pushing Corp Mining Ops.

Now, with the payment plan that we will have set up, free lancers like Chiich, who don't want to mine with the group would be able to squeeze more money out of the Corp, then the guys who help do the Corp Ops.

So I'm trying to convince the CEO to pull back the old policy, and have those guys just sell their own stuff on the market instead of benefiting off the corps earnings, while not really contributing to it.

So it's a union-esque policy that i'm trying to get instituted.
