Great news.

 

Also, fyi, how war in Eve looks like:

 

 

This is World War Bee stuff here, this is the latest 'Global war' that happened (Goons got kicked, yes they're like IRON or NPO of Eve, they run a coalition called 'Imperium')

The grand politics are kinda-similar to CN, but the gameplay obviously is alot more immersive and detailed, it's a great game.

I will be there the day it turns F2P, I guess EVE would be a good alternative when CN dies?

Well sorta.

From what I take from gameplay, it's more active than just sitting back and managing a nation, it's more of a FPS.

depends on your play style, you can simply relax and mine in highsec while watching a movie on a different screen and pause to change asteroids or to sell your full storage.
or you can fight pirates and stuff.

Well true.

 

I prefer FPS WAY MORE than laid-back style.

 

So now they decided to split EVE into two categories: Alpha and Omega. I think Alpha is F2P while Omega is P2P. Alpha offers less choices than Omega does, but you need to pay a monthly subscription fee to get the Omega.

 

Also, RIP Vile Rat.

I tend to play (and pay) for DCUO because I like the ability to customize your looks and even abilities seperate from most anyone else. It has limited options but you can make it work. Does Eve have that sort of customization? Basically I play MMOs as if it was The Sims lmao

DarkFox, I'm not going to spend money on a game but I'm probably going to need help when EVE becomes F2P in November.

Some people spend more time fitting ships with the mods in game than playing. Also you can get cosmetic  stuff like skins (mostly terrible) and stuff to dress up your pilot (mostly sucks)

Do the free trial anyway so you can get 21 days ahead of the other people who will start when its free to play.

You will be able to fly basic frigates, destroyers and cruisers. You will also be limited to the race your character is.The skill training will be slower than a paid account and you will not be able to use all the ship equipment and skills. To put into perspective you will be able to fly over 13 ships which is admittedly a drop in the bucket for what you could fly if paid, however you still still be able to do almost anything in the game and be competitive in pvp especially since over half the population during that time will be other free to play people. There is also talk that the market will be a bit more limited and such. That way people who manipulate the market cannot play for free and become even more mega rich.

I'd say enough for ~3 months of contents, after that it's blurry, but you would hit the ceiling if you're in it for a ~ year. Either-way, you would still be part of the of the fleets and big battles unless you're in some v.v.v. elite and niche pvp or pve groups. 

 

Many of the bigger alliances will let you in and find a role for you in battle. There are also alliances focused on new players solely. The community is alot more friendly as far as teaching newbs is concerned vs CN, the community strives and helps newbs get the hang of it. It's not toxic like OWF tbh.

 

There are also, many many ways to play it. You can be a miner (mine resources), industrialist (build stuff), PvPer (pew pew, best part, this is where all the political drama and big battles are for which Eve is famous), PvE (farming and ratting etc, running missions, incursions (think of it as doing raids/dungeons), trading (buy low, sell high), spying (seems that every major alliance has spies in every major alliance, so good drama at times) etc etc.

 

I mostly do PvP, I fund those adventures through PvE and trading.

I wonder if their are any ties to the Imperium of Star Citizen. In SC, Imperium is one of the biggest factions that has arisen and will probably be the most powerful privately owned fleet in the game. Crazy how the game isn't even in Beta and they already have an insane amount of capitol ships. In Star Citizen, a NPC faction will lay claim to an area of space and police it. While Imperium might just be powerful enough to force their own jurisdiction in controlled space or may have the power to be de facto owners of the planet where their HQ is located.

 

I never really got into EVE but I had a couple friends who played. I suspect a lot of people who wanted to play EVE but didn't want to pay a subscription, will immediately jump on board.


The idea of war is not to die for your country, it's to make the enemy die for his.
