You'll find that a lot of gentleman have female characters. Since everyone gets 3 characters per account, people tend to have some of each.

Also there are some great overview packs out there for download but make sure you understand how it is set up so you can tinker with it later. Nothing is worse than not being able to shoot an enemy because they aren't showing on your overview! I wrote a little guide you may/may not find useful :)

well isnt that disappointing...here i was thinking that this game has an abnormal amount of females playing (not saying that there arent any), but in reality tis not true.

if 'gentlemen' use female avatars.....thats kinda creepy. glad you told me, now i dont get my hopes up hahahah.

There is a lot of people who prefer to have a female portrait for whatever reason. Everything from "Hey its fun to play with the sliders in character generation" to more for a RP aspect of the game (know several people who uses a female character and write RP based around their character, i guess with a female character you have a lot more..freedom..you can be sensetive and emotional while with a male character your supposed to be "tough").

That being said, there is a lot of female players around.
Many will hide the fact that they are real females since the level of harassment can get pretty extreme just like in any other game, and EVE is more of a "boy's club" so females can have a harder time getting recognition from the community outside of their smaller groups.

Some will be more open about it, and they are easy to find, and of course you can always stop by WGOE's (Women Gamers of EVE) public channel were male players are just as welcome as females. And yes, there is a channel for female gamers only so if you know any female gamers who is looking for a quiet place to hang out and chat once in a while you should point them in that direction Smile

well that clears up somethings for me.

anyways, back to the game and my noobiness.

so yea, even though i joined Brave Newbies, im still not confident in my direction in the game. hopefully BN can help show me the path.

im assuming that ill be messing around for a few months before i true target a specific path here in EvE...

You will most likely find that you change your career several times over the first 6 months and then again years from now when your completely burned out by the path you choose.
Its very common and its something more or less everyone runs into once in a while, so dont worry about the fact that you havent decided what to do yet Smile

the idea of a corp is cool and everything, i understand how it works in the game and all of that. However, what would be awesome would be if a veteran took me (in reality me and my friend, unless my friend decides he has his own brain and can make his own decisions) under his/(or HER) wing and have it be more of a one-one relationship. like an apprentice or something like that.

...i might change my mind after i get in touch with my corp leaders for the first time.

so here is another question....

i see a lot of people saying that i should finish the agent missions up to level 4....how long until you get to level 4 missions. last night i played a bunch of level 1 missions and it took me several hours. will it take me weeks of several hours per day playing to get to level 4, if so WTF, how boring is that...

Getting to level 4 missions is a long grind, and it will take you a while to be able to fly a ship capable of completing them as well. I'm surprised that people would recommend that to a new player. Most people consider missions as a way to make isk which can be spent on more fun activities.

I party. Really. I do.

yea i dont think missions are for me. seems like a lot of grinding (in some sense) to me. even though i joined 2 weeks ago i have a lil bit of isk. so i think going through different Corps to learn the ropes and figure out what i want to do is my option...who knows...

so...you party huh? the question is...what kind of party? and where is this party?

i wouldnt mind going to one of the EvE get togethers in RL...to bad i live in a place where thats not possible..

Believe it or not but there is quite a few couples who have met in EVE and ended up getting married Smile
One couple got married at FF this year, if i remember correctly someone else proposed on stage a few years back, and you will find the random stories like this.

But i warn you tho, making it your goal to find female players in the hopes they will marry you would most likely be an unachievable goal and you would run the risk of coming across as a creepy stalker Lol

lol yea yea...obviously i didnt start playing this game with that in mind, but..would be cool though lol.

man i just watched a youtube vid of BNI doing some titan fleet back in july, and man, some of the lingo/jargen i hear makes no sense to me lol. one of those large fleet actions seems to me why i would want to keep playing..that large 4000+ battle at 6VDT-H is what got my attention on this game in the first place.

ok so i think that i want to lean towards PVP. the care bear stuff just sounds to boring and time consuming to me (although i know its necessary to fund your PVP adventures)...

but, since i know i have to find a way to finance my PVP adventures, i think i want to delve into exploring, with a long term goal of combat exploring.

...recommendations?
