...I realize I misspelled a website after hitting enter and desperately start hitting CTRL + Space to stop it loading.

I'm sure you all have had similar experiences in which things you do in EVE are done in real life almost instinctively from how much you have played the game.

Let's hear those stories! Lol

... you realize you have spent so much time, effort, and money on this game that the only way you'll ever leave is if the game dies or you die of cirrhosis of the liver... whichever comes first.

When you have a dream where it's raining, but instead of raindrops there are tiny Rifters falling from the sky.

You realize you cant hide from your wife no matter how close to the screen you get with the headphones turned on full



You realize when the police pull you over in your mark 2 ford fiesta it isnt a dramiel Sad

And then it happened. Massive, eerily green blasts erupted from seemingly nowhere, and an Amarrian Apocalypse went up in flames.  "It was a Jovian Mother ship".

someone has to do it....

When you run at full speed toward a Coal Miner in the attempt to stop them from mining.

Play EvE how you want to play it and do not let others dictate how you play. Evolve your playstyle to protect yourself from others! Even in "PVE", "PVP" is there, lurking in the shadows.

So many of these over the years, but i'll bite again.

I wasn't paying attention on the weekend and went to log off of my computer. EvE wasn't even on.

I hit Alt- Shift- Q to shut down my computer. *facepalm*

Whatever you do, don't use a sodastream to make it fizzy again!

edit: if you know what it is I am referring to then you HAVE been playing for too long.

when you try burning back to the elevators, hoping CCP aggressed and can't follow you through.

One of the bitter points of a good bittervet is the realisation that all those SP don't really do much, and that the newbie is having much more fun with what little he has. - Tippia
