I've been playing since April 1st, 2006. Sold that original character though (legally for ISK). Anyway, been around since then.

Ascendent Frontier was all the rage, until BoB took them out.

Was in before GoonSwarm. Lol

Still remember Innominate Nightmare and his travels. His blog was a great read.

Hi there o/

Actually I played in very late 2003 and early 2004 but not really much and lost my character credentials. I don't even remember his name.

thought the game was boring, came back in '06 and rolled Chand :D

Best memories:

- Building the first outpost in Paragon Soul (I forget the system)
- Getting subsequently smashed by Band of Brothers in Paragon Soul
- Escorting freighters from highsec to deep null
- Creating regional gate to gate bookmark set
- NO CYNOS
- Blaster Mega's being the scariest ship in the game.

Obligatory 'back in the day' anecdotes:

*Jita was considered busy if it had more then twenty people in system

*Sometimes, the client wouldn't crash when you undocked

*Probes? They're a Matari frigate, right?

*Yes, it's perfectly fine to fit more than one MWD to your Scorpion

*Gankageddons: for when you absolutly have to get your laser on

*Don't get between an angry missile and its target

Hal.
Why yes, yes I am going to shoot you.

Wish I could remember my beta account login lol

Oh well, this is my 4th (and final as Achura was win) character

There are good ships,

And wood ships,

And ships that sail the sea

But the best ships are Spaceships

No T2 except Miner 2's. No rigs. No Pos's. Spending hours upon hours creating insta bookmarks and even more hours copying them. Yulai was the main trade hub.

You kids today don't know how easy you have it!

Issler was born on 2006.03.03

But my first and still played character Gadgette was born on 2004.02.02, getting close to the magic 10! Can't wait for access to that private 10 year vet station!! Lol

My "way back when" stories included:

Trying to be part of "Big Blue".
Thinking Bob really was going to own all of Eve.
Being amazed at seeing a Battleship for the first time,
Knowing you couldn't perma-camp a gate.
Seeing the first successful gate snipers that made gates start to seem like false security.
Being able to buy almost anything from NPCs.
Thinking that ganking NPC comvoys was amazing isks!
Thinking making trade runs of stuff like tobacco was a good living.
Being in the goons when they first became an alliance and really seeing what being at war was like and thinking how awesome giant fleets of frigates could be.
Having just flying around to see all the tourist destinations CCP had built into the 'verse.

Thinking Mining was bad ass profit.
Spending 2 months training all learning skills to 5+4.

I too am a 7 year old toon, however I have taken numerous breaks from EVE.

That said, I remember BoB, t20, he whose name cannot be spoken, T2 BPOs, CCP Tuxford, Burn Jita, boot.ini, the sorely missed warp to 15k (although I do not miss the infinite bookmarks of doom), etc.

And through it all, Caldari ships have been **** in pvp.




Come on these bookmarks where quite handy when you wanted to put some lag into the system when hostiles came in Blink .

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