What goals are you working on?

Thought it might be interesting to hear what goals/objectives other newer players are working on. It's pretty easy to get into a rut of agent mission running and forget about other things to do.

Here's what I'm working on:
-Preparing for solo Level 4 missions (training for Large Art'y for a BS)
-Working on Invention (running security and distribution missions with Boundless Creation, to get access to better Boundless Creation Research agents (and more datacores per day))
-Considering trying a Pirate Epic Arc

- Finish the Academy (naturally; almost done)
- Try everything in EVE (nowhere near yet)
- Get into the Proteus (gah...)
- See the Titan in action (long way there)
- Do 1 000 000 000 ship spins (1 000 done, 999 000 000 to go)
- Become FC (main goal)
- Live in nullsec (after I venture through entire hisec and lowsec)
- Become a grumpy, long-bearded outcast, living in a w-space and talking to his ship collection (end-game)

EDIT:
- If CCP turns EVE Online into Free2Play Pay2Win - blow up a DED battleship, leave sour post on Forum and quit playing the game.

But this will probably change few times...

I'll tell you from experience, pirate epic arcs are quite fun. I did the Guristas one a while ago and enjoyed it a lot, it's a nice break from the usual.

And, as for my goals, it changes week-to-week :p

I'm playing EVE "properly" for half a year now and because I'm still a newbie puppy, I'll tell you my goals as well! Big smile


I'm preparing my skills to be able fly battleship Vindicator as for L4 and Epic Arc missions. I think having tougher HP and higher DPS output will help me finish my missions quicker.


My second goal is to find one day a lovely C1-2 wormhole and settle down there for a while. Probably with friends. We would start there some heavy PI. But I need more planning (and skills) for such a operation.


I'm also about to start something with my mining. I would like to have a Hulk as my second "ultimate" ship, one day. Then I would probably start making new ships Smile But that is in far future.


And finally my last goal, in even more farther future, would be to skill myself for hauling, because I would love to haul Big smile But general public courier contracts are terrible so I would have to join Little Red Frogies to actually make my freighter profitable.

I'm Caroline Grace, and this is my favorite musical on the Citadel.

Well, I'm not really a new player.

I created my character to be a Combat Engineer doing Exploration, Invention and T2 Production. I've probably trained about 2/3rds to 3/4's of the required skills needed.

One of my early goals was to complete missions for all Event Agents active in this game. Currently I only have 15 Empire Cosmos agents left and all of the Pirate Cosmos Agents (about another 15 agents) left to complete. The last Event Agents I'll complete will be the ones offering the Faction Ship BPC's since they require very high positive standings to access.

My goal is to have fun while not taking it too serious, and to avoid grinding. inda broad but this is a sandbox MMO, limiting myself to single/specific things would be silly. Honest truth is that I've done most things in EVE and then things I still haven't done don't interested me so I generally just do a bit of "whatever" :P

Excellence is not a skill, it's an attitude.

It's a little sad to see that out of 6 only one sees human interaction as a goal in a MMO.

Let's improve that ratio a little:

I want to touch the hearts of a thousand players. (Can't tell you how or it would not work.)

Other than:

- Try everything in EVE
- See the Titan in action
- Live in nullsec

So, out of the seven things he posted that he wants to do, four of them will almost certainly involve human interaction, even though they don't explicitly require it.

They're all decent goals. Not all of them are on my bucket list (especially FCing, which seems like it would be akin to trying to herd cats to me and holds little appeal, in large-scale fleets atleast), but they're all perfectly reasonable and interesting goals that will last you a while.

Ok, fair enough. Let me rephrase then:

It's a little sad to see that out of 6 only one requires human interaction and as such could not be done in a single player game.

(Little note: There is a Titan in highsec.)

Not much of a new player anymore, but I can tell you what my goals were two years ago:


  • Kill a T2 ship in a T1-fit Rifter. (Complete)
  • Get better at 0.0 PvE so I can actually afford shinier ships. (Complete, sort of)
  • Participate in a 1000-man fleet battle. (Complete; died in a fire)
  • Train to competently fly every single frigate with T2 equipment. (Complete)
  • Make a name for myself as a frigate/small gang PvPer. (Still working on it)


Ed: And current goals:


  • Make a name for myself as a frigate/small gang PvPer.
  • Grow my corp into a respectable entity.
  • Kill a capital ship using frigates/cruisers only.
  • Become a better FC and CEO.
  • Train to competently fly every single cruiser with T2 equipment.

Uhm... Player interaction is the only thing I'm playing EVE for. Even when doing PvE I always try to fly with others. I'm helping my corpmates with missions and exploration, even today I was mining on gravimetric site with a rookie (and I hate mining). If I want to play singleplayer space game, I have X3 series for that and upcoming X-Rebirth will probably kick ass. Let's be honest, PvE content in EVE is poor...ish and if you eliminate player interaction from EVE equation, you are left with boring, repetitive tasks in the same, boring scenarios.
It's really hard to not interact with other players in EVE. Whatever you do, it's always with or against somebody. EVE should be called MMOI (Massive Multiplayer Online Interaction) to emphasize that.

Goal?
I don't set goals, I bought several skillbooks and I need to meet the prereqs for these, then train them.
Meanwhile, I merely hope I'll have a lot of fun with good bunch of nutcases, fleeting in missions or w-space.

The major goal I'll avoid is nullseks.

My current goal is 4x frigate IV, 4x cruiser III and destroyers V to get most bang for the buck when CCP changes ship skill requirements after summer. Blink
Core of this being "if you can fly it now, you can fly it after the patch".

My Goals being new.

1. Finish some more skills so I can equip T2 fittings
2. Get standing high enough to run level 4 missions, currently almost to level 3 missions
3.a Move to LowSec or NullSec to be with more corp and alliance members
3.b Move my PI operation to Null or lowsec and get it running again.
4. Win a PvP battle.

So those are my goals for this month. Might change Next month, we shall see

My main was quite indecisive in the beginning (back in 2008). I chased all sorts of goals which was like chasing butterflies. I could do a little of everything adequately but not great.

Now my main has buckled down and made a very clear goal. To train to fly all non capital ships of all races and techs along with their respective tech one and two weapons. I'm getting close to reaching this goal now. I can fly almost all non capital ships and their T2 weapons except for T2 battleships, T2 battleship size weapons, most T2 industrial ships, and the gallente T3 ship the Proteus.

As a player, my main goal is to try out every aspect of EvEs gameplay. So far I've done:
Ninja salvaging
Mining
Mission running
0.0 carebear'ing
0.0 PvP
Piracy
Exploration
Trading
Manufacturing
Highsec wardec griefing
Planetary Interaction
Suicide ganking
Tooling around on SISI
Scamming
Ratting
WH PvP hunting
WH dwelling

So far from all that I've really enjoyed living in a wormhole and have plans to go back.

Anybody have this goal: Create a corp, build it into an juggernaut of fun and efficiency, and move it into null sec? Then do sovereignty wars and conquer at least a little corner of the galaxy? Too impossible for a corp starting from scratch? I.e. no chance at all vs. the status quo of the current big alliances?
