Hey Guys,

I've been playing Eve on and off for years, I have played in null sec, grinded missions, run shiney incursions fleets, dabbled in PI and mining but now I'm back after a 1 year break and looking for some fun things to do.

Ideally looking for a nice small corp to swoop me off my feet and entertain me back into the game after all I play eve for the MMO value not the solo grind.

I'm from the UK so playtime is 18:00 - 22:00 most days and I'm looking for group activities to join in so post your suggestions or recruitment threads and let me know what to with my reincarnation back to eve.

Sorry to tell you, the game hasn't had any new content since June 2011. It's all been rebalances, cosmetic changes and background numbers changes.

Appearantly logging in all your alts to see the ''current numbers online'' being beaten is fun.

Man this game gone down the crapper fast ...

We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.

Faction warfare is probably the biggest new thing. Bounty hunting and crimewatch. Duelling with boosts and neutral logi in trade hubs. Not much else. CCP Gargant -  Dev of my heart.

Station spinning and not logging in are probably the two most popular activities.

Edit: The latter may not currently be true.

Why would you not use an alt to post on the forums?

Contracting me all your stuff is the most fun.

The game got am almost completely new T1 frig, cruiser and BC roster, faction warfare was revamped but is still pretty flawed because it rewards farming more than anything else, the bounty and crime system was completely redone alosng with lots of minor changes.

I'd say that joining an underdog faction in FW like Amarr and having fun in the revised T1 ships is s cheap way to have some fun and get to know the new ships.

In case you're looking for some terrible themepark-raid 'content' like incursions or captains closet or new fancy pants you'll end up disappointed.
