There is an option to buy ships for irl cash. With plex prices rising, you can buy dozens of ships for just a few bucks. Pimp modules are dirt cheap too.

sorry eve, I really tried to like you. I love the premise, the tech, the intricacies, engineering and strategies. But for a solo player, its a complete waste of time. Odd and irregular hours of play, limited time and, especially, inability to be a total sycophant relegate me to the world of loner roamer which equals death. I play games to take a break from regular life, alas all this is more of the same. Unless you are part of a gang and/or have a 1b income stream to blow on blinged out pvp ships, life is pretty ******. I'll just go grind a real job thanks.
cya.

Have you tried Factional Warfare? You can have lots of solo fun with 2 mil ISK ships.

Yeah. There a lot of individualists or nonconformists flying around solo in FW space. Maybe they're on a samurai sword quest, or they watched too many Clint Eastwood movies, or maybe they're just anti-social. Or just busy dads with can only commit to casual play. Really fun though.

I swear, either you or someone with a name very similar to yours Harrowmont once tried to scam me. I believe it was the "Isk doubling game" in Jita, but I can't be sure. It was last year however, towards the end of the year. You may not realise it, but scammers (And growing bored of market games at that time, due to failing and a lack of experience about eve as a game) pushed me into a different path, that is of exploration.

I was extremely successful at exploration, after trial and error and I was making Isk rapidly, accumilating billions over time. It was being forced into exploration which led to my intimate discovery of null sec alliances. Being hunted through Cobalt Edge by inPanic was one of the luckiest things that happened to me, as one of those corps offered me a place in their alliance.

It took a lot of time, learning about the game, generating tonnes of isk with about 6 months in inPanic before joining PH for the purposes of learning PvP. Within my first 2 weeks in PH, I FC'd my first fleet which ended up resulting in a full-on capital brawl causing ~40B of destroyed Dreadnaughts from a failed dread-bombing and that was my first proper fleet as FC (Caps FC'd themselves do note, I FC'd the sub-caps) in PH.
(Insider Joke: Horde dosen't have Caps Twisted)

It's really funny, to think that this journey I embarked on was because of annoying scammers (Insert "Like you" if appropriate).

Anyways a message for the OP: Moral of the story, the experiences you have in Eve shape and mould you, and completely unexpected things will happen from the nastiest circumstances. Don't quit because you are down on your luck. Eve ultimately is a game of time and you will make plenty of mistakes but never give up. (A good reason for quitting is RL commitments however, Eve can slowly take over your life. Don't turn Eve into a job) . Being a solo player is by far one of the toughest paths you can take. There are very few people who have that capability (And succeed). Eve is designed to be a MMO. It is based around player interaction and such it rewards players for working together. But note that you don't need billions to have alot of fun in Eve. I've had unbelivable fun flying around 3m isk ships through lowsec and teaming up with random people to roam. Alpha ships are actually quite awesome once you know how to fit your race's ships properly.


PS: I still suck at solo pvp, and I've whelped a fleet of cormorants since then (Still very new to FCing), but there are some glorious golden moments you will become a part of. Seeing a carrier for the first time, seeing a super, and then a titan for the first time were some of my most memorable moments.

EvE is a place where bad decisions lead to bad experience. I have detected your worst one.

I feel with everyone who only experience grind and suffering because of the choices they made. But for me, the best thing in New Eden is that your choices have consequences. That's why those who love it love it.



I refer you to this:

Odd and irregular hours of play


Which is way solo play is what he was doing...



How is that a sane reason for solo play? Most of us have strange playing times and things change in RL. Never had any issues with it in Goons and everyone knows how strict we are with paps and stuff.

EVE is a ****** game when played solo, It is a ****** game with others too but then you get to enjoy the strategic level stuff and that is the fun thing about EVE.


Calm down, the Goons are well organised and stuff, we all know that, I found an excellent AU TZ alliance that does fleet stuff in my main play period, but prior to that I often missed out on fun fleet stuff in other alliances. Odd and irregular play will make it hard for him to develop a group of friends and therefore he ends up playing more solo, I have come across people in the same situation, perhaps you should invite him to your corp, as I know people who were in your corp I also know that your corp is an especially good corp, so he can get into a group that suits him.

When the going gets tough the Gankers get their CSM rep to change mechanics in their favour.
