nah that's ok.. i actually got around to checking out the site and it looks pretty much exactly like Earth & Beyond kinda feel... although the graphics are definitely breathtaking and awesome...  The speed sounds nice, but that wasn't the real big reason why I cancelled E&B so soon, it was just the feel of it and the aspect of the rpg.. and this game I can tell for a fact is the same in that aspect... just different strokes I suppose... I played FFXI for 2.5 years after trying E&B and not really liking it (with a short, enjoyable time in Planetside although with a machine horribly underpowered to play it) and I had to force myself off that addiction.. :) Thanks though!

EDIT: 07/03

So I was thinking/looking for a new game to play.. while I'm not interested in another MMORPG or Eve, anyone know a solo rpg game thats recent that has this kinda graphics?  I realize nothing will be identical but those damned graphics are calling to me... just without the hours on end of wasting my social life away (again) to learn a new skill while paying a huge monthly fee :D (like before)

Either X3 or Oblivion, I'd say.

oh yeah, my corp's joining an Alliance. sometime in the near future (not exactly sure when) we will be joing Freelancer Alliance.

Prior to that, we need to spend some time mining ice to fuel our POS and capital ships. (two dreads, three carriers, a freighter and a POS, for a corporation with no more than about 25 individual active members. We rule.)

If x3 is anything like x2 you'll still be wasting your social life away.

And the Freelancer Alliance is a kinda silly name.

Played Oblivion for a while but I like being an assassin majoring in archery and archery is way too weak in that game to count for anything.

Haven't heard of X3 I'll check that out.  When I was asking I was referring to a solo version of Eve Online kinda thing with those graphics.  Let me check out the X3 site and thanks for the heads up.

Edit: If you meant Xmen-3 for X3 then no, tried it and wasn't too gripping on me.

just got the free trial. so far i can tell that for alot of my friends, this game would be HELL.

i mean, it does take a bit of transit time between places, etc. but i LOVE that. because my gaming time is always getting interrupted by studying, chores, cleaning, etc.

so i set the destination, hit autopilot, walk away, work on stuff, etc. come back, do the mission or whatever, then warp back. lol.
it's pretty sweet

my dream list is almost fully populated

I just need a covetor, an iteron V, a crusader and a Zealot to attain everything I've been working towards since I started playing EVE.

after that point, I'ma focus on maxing out all my existing skills.

I lost my Hawk last night :(

Got swarmed by five enemy interceptors in 3JN9-Q,  and the fuckers were using EM missiles, which was my weakest resistance.

On the other hand, I'm pulling in an almost silly amount of money up there, and because the ship was lost in combat with an enemy alliance, it gets replaced for me by the corp.

they got away, though - daring motherfuckers used an insta to get straight past our gate camp, which involved two carriers (some n00b forgot to set up the warp disruption bubble)

still, pretty fun.

oh, and you should be ashamed of yourself, flying an uninsured Raven.

Having said that - lost two Crows in as many days lately. suckstick.

but - they were both Platinum insured. Winstick.

Payout on a platinum-insured Crow is 2 million. Crows cost 24 million. suckstick.

you're hosting on photobucket. Above a certain size limit (believe it's 1.3 Mb), Photobucket automatically scales images down. it doesn't scale them down to 1.3 megs, though, oh no, it stamps them flat into a tiny parody of their former selves.

Ugh, don't I know it.  There goes a hundred and thirty million.  :(

And, yep, I'm one of those goonies; I read about the game on the SA forums and figured I'd try it, and got kind of hooked.  I've got a general use main and an alt heading for covops-es.  And maybe force recons, you know, in six months.

Ive aquired a Brutix BPC, and have been doing some adding up. At the moment I can build them for around 23m. But, with prices of the damn things at 23.75m in ours, id only make 750k profit... NOT ENOUGH FOR THE EFFORT!

Anyone hear about the huge scam?  A guy opened a bank on an ult -- and had a huge folowing, promising high output rates without explanation.  Anyways, people started saying it was a scam, some withdrew, so the guy closed off access and pulled out of the bank, about 800 BILLION ISK in raw and in Assets.  He is the single most wealthy person in Eve Online, and actually stole thousands of dollars worth of in game material on his scam.

Uhm, I know about the "great scam" story, which earned someone 300m, which was way lots back in the day (so ive heard).

Its a pretty good read btw, got me in eve :).

But, given that on the forums, i cant find a public outcry for the person's head/genitalia on a stick, I assume you are misinformed. Ive heard this about the Eve Intergalactic Bank, and, as far as I know, that is still up and running, stronger than ever.

In any case, before you give out money for an investment, there is the whole trust issue, combined with a good good plan. I find it hard to feel sorry for people that were tricked.

Also, you cant do such things alone in this game. Just doesnt work. Loners are Losers, so to say.

Anyway, onto important news, I gots me a Mackinaw!

  I'll summerize.  Guy creates alt -- guy starts a bank on alt.

  Bank promises good payouts for large investments (with no concievable way of doing so)

  Bank becomes very popular.

  Words spreads around that the bank is a sham.

  Some people start pulling out of the bank.

  The guy cuts off the rest and takes all the assets for himself before they all pull out netting 790,000,000,000.00 ISK in assets / raw money worth approx. $140,000 US Dollars.

I tried EVE, i liked the space combat, and money-mongering aspect, nut I'm not an RPG man.

I think it's all about mental strategy versus physical strategy. In an RPG, your success is all about numbers, figures and other variables, like skill points and levels. The strategy is all in your head.

But I prefer physical strategy, where success is determined in the "real" world. (ie: your gameplay rather than your numbers.) Like in an FPS, it's all about cover and tactics that you can ACTUALLY SEE. Not like RPG's where a massive change has little to no "proof" of it. You can see a guy walking around with a rocket launcher, but you can't see his speed/strength/weapon skill/magic pixie bonus etc.

Sorry about my little rant, but it is what it is.

I think it's all about mental strategy versus physical strategy.

I would describe that conflict as strategy versus tactics. In one you plan stuff out, prepare for contingencies, allocate resources, etc... and in the other you make the right high-speed short term decisions. So really, they're both "real world gameplay", just one is in advance and the other is not.

It sounds like you'd make a good sergeant, but a terrible general :)
