I remember when 20 vs 20 was a blobfight and the loss of a T1 fit battleship was a huge blow to the wallet.

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

I remember crying when my typhoon wouldnt go 10k a second after the nano nerf.

1. Skill training - this was the biggest pain...
2. No remaps - I've created 2 new characters (incuding this one) because of the attributes...
3. And i was waiting for CCP to blow my mind with WiS. The biggest SCAM in my life...Evil

in 2007 i've thought it's a sci-fi simulator, not an "e-sports" game. I'm not a teenager, how would i like it much?

I remember when CCP would not allow scams like yours in the forums.

hint: there are no honest "isk doublers".

I remember when CCP employed ISDs instead of relying on Captain Keens from the common folk.

I remember when the game was downloadable only (after the initial box) and did NOT have a rating system attached to it.

I remember when Aura would laugh at you when you got podded and woke up in your clone. "Ha ha ha, you foolish pilot..." Was kind of oo-woo eery/creepy.

I remember mOo killing a concord fleet they stirred up.

I remember using scan probes but you had to also use comb probes and sifters to scan down a ship.

I remember when there were no sentry guns at gates. anywhere.

I remember when the autopilot, that was introduced in the last couple of weeks of beta, would still randomly just stop working after the game went live Twisted

I remember when A typhoon with a piddly active shield tank could permatank CONCORD cruisers while pretty much doing whatever you wanted in 1.0 space. CONCORD didnt' have battleships yet.

I remember when ships had 10 drones max, instead of 5.

I remember when thorax could launch and control 8 HEAVY drones at the same time ;)

I remember the MWD / AB combos, when you could activate both modules at the same time ;)

I remember when putting an oversized afterburner on your ship had no agility penalty.

I remember putting 4 MWD's on my typhoon and achieving speeds greater than warp speed. ( Took over 10 minutes to slow down to a manueverable speed after activating all 4 in rapid succession )

I remember the 100k book mark copies I had for gate-to-gate travel before warp-to-zero was introduced. I also remember the lag created by the folks copying these things en masse creating so many database entries...

I remember when the smallest transaction you could make was 1 isk. ( no fractional isk ). When buying up tritanium at 1 isk per unit, couriering it to a battleship producer and selling in via the trade window for 1.5 isk per unit was a very profitable enterprise.

I remember when NPC convoys dropped useful items -- like Harvester Mining Drones...

I remember when Spodumain and Arkornor spawned in 0.1 system belts in empire!

I remember when NPC stations had constant buy orders for minerals at:

TRI :: 1 isk
PYE :: 4 isk
MEX :: 16 isk
ISO :: 64 isk
NOC :: 256 isk
ZYD :: 1024 isk
MEGA :: 4096 isk

because noone had any isk in the beginning :)

I remember when the Jovian General went rogue, got whooped by a fleet of player battleships ( after some serious struggles ) and it dropped the first T2 BPOS ( mining laser II's ). I remember that Techell and Taggart Transdimensional bought the ones they didn't get out-right, and had a monopoly for many months. cost to build was around 100k, adn they were selling for like 40m isk each...

I remember when the joint research station was being built in Crielere but noone knew what it was. Crielere was high sec at the time... But during the final days of the in-game event, something happened to CONCORD and they started shooting everyone, regardless of sec status. I remember those of us that had battleships would go and distract concord so others could try and get in/out of system for the event, since CONCORD had the gates camped :)

I remember when in-game events happened regularly and were fun.

I remember when The People's Front of Minmatar would have epic battles with CVA / PIE, and how people would run for cover and dock when either side entered the other's low sec systems.

I remember when battleships could target and track all targets just as easily as a frigate.

I remember when all missiles could fit on all ships ----- I miss the cruise missile Kestrel....

Oh there's more, but I doubt anyone will make it this far in the post.

And when you couldn't move probes around in space, you had to make safespots and drop them at good locations.

I remember 50mil isk Domi's

The Jukebox with awesome songs such as the classic 'Below the Asteroids' but also, Solitary Pilot, Primordial Star Clouds, and a couple others.

The OLD CYNO EFFECTEvil, they really should 'modernize' it and bring it back. You used to know when you were getting hotdroppedShocked

Oh, and the old laser sounds. Abaddon blasting away at my Myrmidon is one of my fondest memories of this game. We had just gotten into a decent sized cruiser/bc brawl with a corp that we were at war with, the CEO died and came back in his Abaddon, I wasn't able to bug out in time, I remember looking at his battleship slowly melting away my Armor and the piercing screeching sound 'piiiCHHHHHHHHHHHHOUUUU!!!!!!!!
