Rule 9: Anything you say can and will be used against you, likely by a spy. Don't write anything in mail or chat that could put you or friends in danger. Don't say anything on comms that could put you or friends in danger. Don't be baited into saying what you shouldn't say, either.

Rule 10: Your tears are your most precious commodity. They are the lifeblood of gankers, scammers, and Goons. Give liberally, lest we come for them.

golden rule:

Avoid Piracy Repercussions:

Trifles like security status hits, character history, and other downsides to indulging in piracy are formalities.

Avoid being blinky when you don't want to, by maintaining a long list of f2p accounts. A vexor takes almost no time to train, and costs an equally trivial amount of isk.

You're basically leaving incredibly valuable, content-creating gameplay on the table if you aren't maintaining at least a couple dozen f2p characters in this manner.

Note: Avoiding these specific gameplay mechanics (and these only!) with f2p accounts is an isolated exception to the game rules. Any other violation of the rules is a violation of the EULA. Fozzie has gone on record explicitly stating he didn't think this particular type of gameplay is a problem and in fact that data shows people love the game more when being ganked in highsec by random alts!

I guess calling anything a Golden Rule is supposed to be funny. I live by the actual Golden Rule: treat others the way you want to be treated. It's not as easy or funny as you might think.

I disagree with a bunch of this rhetoric but I still enjoy space games so that is why I pay to log in and enjoy PVE activities.

After several years of shooting people in the face, I can safely tell you that this is inaccurate.

Am I scary or something?

Had you waited another seven-plus months to post this, you could have posted it on the decennial anniversary of the original post.

The ultimate rule:

EVE Online is just a videogame. Don't play past the point where you enjoy it.

Where is the 'Adapt or die' rule?

CCP sometimes OMGWTFPWNBBQ'es your gameplay, by changing game mechanics/ships/mods/whatever, and the ship u used to fly like a Boss yesterday is now a piece of cow excrement wasting valuable space in your hangar.

Live with it and adapt, or just ... quit allready. Lol

Something new to add to my Bio and corp description.

Cloaking is the closest thing to a "Pause Game" button one can get while in space.
