This isn't true at all!

This one time, I met a cute Caldari guy at Jita 4-4 when I was buying a new Microwarpdrive for my Polaris frigate, and let me tell ya, station services get really buttmad when they have to clean peanut butter and whipped cream from the walls of your captain's quarters!

Not safe at all, nu-huh!

Shocked




Thought EVE was PG-13? This has me blushing.

Too bad they didn't get Cooking to V first though, seems they messed it up.

I've got cooking to V, but I'm still working on a lot of my specializations, like Light Sauce Specialization, which I got to II before I had to work on Medium Sauce Specialization for some CTAs. Let me tell you-- doctrines are a pain, but you don't want to be the guy flying a run-of-the-mill brown sauce when the fleet needs a chanterelle cream sauce.

I disagree with rule 12

CODE is just a bunch of pirates; smart, organized pirates. It doesn't help to rage at them because that is exactly what they want. Dust yourself off and get back on your feet, you don't even have to talk to them.

Some time ago the topic of Eve Rules was being discussed and after a while came up with these 10 Rules of Eve.

Quote:
The 10 Rules of Eve

1st Rule Of Eve = Never trust anyone.

2nd Rule Of Eve = It's always a trap.

3rd Rule Of Eve = If it sounds too good to be true, refer to Rule 1 and 2.

4th Rule Of Eve = Don't fly what you can't replace.

5th Rule Of Eve = The only safe place is in station.

6th Rule Of Eve = Undock from station is consent for PvP.

7th Rule Of Eve = When in doubt, refer to Rule 4, 5 and 6.

8th Rule Of Eve = There is no correct way to play.

9th Rule Of Eve = Conversation gains Information.

10th Rule Of Eve = To correctly play Eve, refer to Rule 8 and 9.


Just wondering if everyone was pretty much in agreement with those. I'm sure there's a few more Cardinal Rules that can be added to the list. At least enough to make it The 13 Rules of Eve. Of course more would be better.

Food for thought. As you can plainly see, after a couple of rules are stated there's another rule which refers back to the previous rules. That should be included with any new rule group, for example :

11th Rule Of Eve = The Forums are Eve too.
12th Rule Of Eve = Only alt characters post in the forums.
13th Rule Of Eve = To win Eve, refer to Rule 11 and 12.

Anyway, just post some more basic rules to this thread and if everyone agrees they can be added to the existing list.

First rule of EVE: Don't trust anyone in-game unless you are sleeping with them in real life
Second rule of EVE: Even then, they might only be screwing you to screw you.
Third rule of EVE: Stations are safe from spaceship PVP but are not safe from PVP in general.

If everyone followed Rule #8 then there would be an 80% reduction in all forum traffic.

Mining chat? Isn't that just a channel for finding people to practice locator agent use upon?

I, sir, disagree with rule 12. I post with my main.

Or one of 'em at least.

Code is to be loaded by feeding decks of punch cards into the punch card reader or by feeding a paper tape to your teletype. You youngsters and your newfangled 'Magnetic Media'.
