Opponent and enemy are two different words. The guy who is trying to kill you doesn't necessarly hate you, and he might turn out to be a very good friend later. Treat him with respect now.

The above message presents my opinions on the topic at hand. If there is a conflict between my views and reality, consider reality to be correct until proven otherwise.

It's OK to trust people in Eve, just not with your stuff.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

That mentally challenged fellow there in Local chat calling you names? He is not mentally challenged. Nor is he forgiving when he finds you.

You fit your ship wrong. Again. That’s right, you always will. “My Punisher killed that Rifter! This is certainly the right fit. No wait, how did that Coercer kill me? I need to refit.”

And my personal favorite:

You will never win this game. There is no level 100. There are no achievements except the ones you set for yourself.

If it looks like a fair fight... it is a trap.

But at the same time; some traps are meant to be sprung!

Fun/Hour is a far more noble pursuit than ISK/Hour.

If it moves, shoot it. If it doesn't move, shoot it.

It was plotting against you anyways...

AFK doesn't only mean Away From Keyboard, in Eve it also means A Free Kill.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Autopilot will likely get you killed

And flying "manual" is super easy; I had to be shown how to do it but it's a no-brainer as soon as you know how. It just means you shouldn't think about using a long trip as an opportunity to leave the keyboard.

My blog about games is called Almost Infinite and I am doing a series of posts called the Casual Alpha's Guide to EVE Online.
