t tldr: soloing eve uaed to be more fun, not anymore.




I enjoyed reading you post btw, like I have with so many of yoir other posts!

I dont know how things were back in the day, and I cant speak for other corps. But in our corp, we have ppl that just want to log in, dont say anything, do some mining, exploration or pvp and they know we are cool with that. They do reach out sometimes, if they suddenly feel like socializing or want to cooperate on something, or just buy ships or modules, as we sell almost anything in game to corp members at jita prices or lower.

We dont do CTA's, ever. You can join roams from our corp or the alliance if you want though. We just want ppl to have fun in their own way when they log in. So I would make a case here that you can still play solo effectively, only logging in when you want to.

The only annoying thing i can imagine when you are gone for a long time, is that the corp would have moved to another system while you were away. But to prevent that you could sell everything you earn in corp to limit the assets you have or make an effort to keep your stocks in low or high sec.

I dont see limitations on any level. Hell, you could even fly your titan solo with us, i really dont see how your limited in any type of gameplay or combining eve with RL when your with us.

Ouf of curiosity, would your corp accept an almost complete noob (though I know the basic rules of the game, written and not) who wants to have some fun but can't log in regularly ? I'd understand if that's not possible.

On topic, as someone who has recently started playing as an alpha, I'd say the captain's quarters. It looks pretty (especially the minmatar one) but it's functionally useless. You can't even explore the station - btw why did the devs add a door if it can't be opened ?

I want CCP to add the first functionality to that door soon, You can finally open it. When you do, gas floods in and you find yourself in your pod.

I have a few.

Can you find something more useless? I mean, even the joke items have a reason to exist and at least don't cost you ISK to make them. Prestige items? Well they have a use (monocle anyone?). Gimme something!




OP everyone explores relic sites in their cap.. its pretty useful. Roll

as others have mentioned.

the most unused item in the game.. is the door that ccp cant figure out how to open in our CQ.. which claims due to some toxic gas or some chit however we have an open balcony view of our ship.

Damn you beat me to it.

The CSM gets in the way of CCP communicating properly with the players of this game.

After all we are not just players, we are customers.

Time for the CSM to be disbanded.

Yeah we can have another noob in the team! I brought in a 7 days old player 2 weeks ago. That got some of my mates worried because "can a low SP pilot have fun in null sec?" I believe its possible and ive seen the guy having fun so far, despite being blown up in his venture on day 3 lol. He does have the advantage that he has another char in high that he runs missions with, because killing NPC's out here is very hard for beginners. But you can mine, best in a group with some of us, or alone watching npc's and hostile player activity carefully. You can do exploration solo. You can pvp with us in a frigate too! So yeah, try us out if you want!

They had plans for it but they got scrapped. Stuff like that happen in MMOs.

Thanks ! Yes, I can mine, I enjoy it, it's very relaxing. I'd like to finish the basic missions in high sec first, to get better gear - got a Rifter, soon a Trasher, then off to cruisers - and then I'd happily join you. Of course since I'm an alpha I would not be very competitive...

here is another addition to most useless items in the game.


those xmas trinkets full of crap that cant be used given to us..

Fedo... who cant be placed in any other container outside your inventor hanger, taking up space by CCP FORCE!

Jump fatigue powder - a troll from ccp which teases if you consumed it provided a reduction in jump fatigue.

CSM Historical Data Sheets- it involved the past CSM council player names.. totally not usable for anything past and present!.

LOL... good one.. this is a "feature" that has no use what so ever and promotes AFK gameplay since we're in an ACTIVE state of game play requirement..

perhaps they should add it to the rorqual so it can autopilot itself into the field..... to die! Big smile
