2003-05-14. Though i started playing back when veldspar was 1m3 per unit and you needed 1000 units for a refine. And a refine only yielded 333 trit.

If you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all...

Played last two weeks of Beta and the day they bumped everyone skills ups before the game went live to test out Battleships. I undocked, panned the camera for 1 minute and redocked because I was late for work.

I mined in a probe for 2 months straight because I refused to go Gallente like the rest of Corporation. (We had one of the first 10 Megathron BPO's ever bought) Finally they felt bad and placed me a Rupture.

When they gave me my first Tempest, I past out ratting in a 0.7 belt due to all the mining hours before and woke up to find Signatar in an egg. That did not go well with my Corp.

I remember mining Arkonor and Bistot in Empire until they changed Roid Spawns. (0.0 had roid field to warp to but were basically place holders until the developers could start working on that part of the game.)

I remember it took 40-60 jumps just to go from one side of a region to the other (Molden Heath) and no warp to 0.

I remember roaming with B.O.S.S and Curse Alliance before there were in-game alliance mechanics.

Dual Warp Drive Cloaking Ravens.

The discovery of making Safe Spots was made by a player named Joshua Calvert...(who would of guessed?)

Famous phrase "Who the F--- is David Galt?"

Good times.

Sup? February 2004 here

I've had a good few periods of account inactivity or just not bothering to train a skill, so I only have about 110m skillpoints. I frequently ran out of things to train that mattered, and had no training goals. Still regret not random setting level 5 skills and keeping good implants in my head all these years.

Oh come now try some stuff a bit older. I'm recently passing 6 years (my first char I didn't like so I biomassed it, my second character I didn't like the name so I biomassed that too.) and I know all of those.

Looking through this thread the one thing that I was reminded of were the "Instas".

And people complain that EVE does not improve. Warp to 0 km, was in my opinion the single best thing to have happened since I started playing.

I have a can in Emrayur named "insta". Good possible that I still got instas of gates that where removed to dehub Yulai. I will not open that can to check tho. The last time I tried the client lagged out for 15 minutes.

I have a pair of '05s though as so many other people have said lots of breaks so no continuous play from back then.

I still have a carrier lying around from when they were first introduced way back when they were first introduced.

I remember when PLEXs were 270-300 mil each.

I remember mining in a scythe in low sec for jaspet, because mining barges didn't exist. Falling asleep at my computer and waking up in my pod because rats had killed me. probably sat in that belt for hours in just a pod without anybody bothering or noticing me.

So many memories over the years. Eve for me will always be the game i could never quit, take a break from yes but always come back too

Soooo glad we don't have to copy bookmarks for every region of space we need to travel through any more.. warp to 0 was a godsend!

Creating warp to 0 bookmarks by passing the gate with 15km and then bm the spot. Yeah.. no warp to 0 on bm's either.
Also selling bm set's for all 0.0 regions.

06 .. still playing it, still loving it, still not giving a **** about peoples feeling about how I play it!

The reality of Eve is that, if you don't love it like it is today, you should probobly go ahead and unsub.
