A friend of mine started to play EVE a few days ago (someone else goaded him) and all the EVE talk made me log in and actually undock. Also it kinda helped there’s this awesome event going on where you just shoot a few rats and get skill points.
So where do we stand now?
- “Main”: 36m skill points
- Hauling Alt: 5.2m skill points, can fly Minmatar Frigates
- Explorer-themed alt, account 2: 5.2m skill points, can fly Amarr Frigates
- Mining-themed alt, account 2: 5.2m skill points, can fly Caldari Frigates
- Ex-Nullsec alt: 11m skill points, right now in LowSec with assets spread everywhere. Not terribly much in terms of ISK, but not nothing. First foray into a belt to shoot rats went fine, today I lost a Caracal. And I had forgotten to empty the hold. That’s 12m down the drain I guess…
I surely don’t plan to mine, but for now I’m doing some L1 missions and shoot some rats in asteroid belts as long as the event is ingame. I still have 1 PLEX, but I don’t really want to pay for a third MMO.
Alpha access is really nice for this, I can fly some of my ships, do the event, could contract some stuff to my beginner friend. This is free to play done right, although I’ve never regretted giving CCP some money.
