I’ve decided that I’ll probably pay for an EVE subscription once my free trial is up. I’ve enjoyed it much more than I thought I would, although I’m still getting used to the open, design-your-own-game environment (in comparison with Warcraft, which does an excellent job of leading you through a linear levelling progression).
Missions are fun, although I find it difficult to gauge difficulty prior to landing amidst a fleet of pirates all overly capable of (and quite exicited about) totally kicking my ass. I’m getting quite good at picking the neared safe haven and warping out of trouble.
The character that I made was built as a prospector/miner, which I actually find quite boring. I enjoy the missions, and would theoretically enjoy some form of pvp once I get a decent ship and can train up the required skills – some of which take a very long time to train.
I need to join a corporation, and have been doing some research into possibilities. Miz and I are running missions together, but it would be helpful to be part of a corporation.
So, overall, I’m having fun, and it’s very different than AoC, LotRO, or WoW…which was the whole point. :)
