Has anyone tried this game out?  It's a couple years old I think, but they are offering a 14 day trial and I'm gonna check it out sometime.  Was curious if anyone one else has played it.

I have heard that Haven has downloaded the trial and I did last night, so I was wondering Haven, what "race" did you go with? This way when I give it a shot, I can find you possibly.

K3llion and I are both Gallente. It's okay, so far, just dunno if it'll hold my interest. Good for Tuesdays, though, while WoW is down.

I was in the beta for EVE and it was my first online game. I enjoyed it, but then when it went live I didnít have the money to pay for it. About a year after that my friend stationed in Korea started playing it and I know that inbetween there they re-wrote the game (akin to what SWG is doing now I suppose) and the improvements were for the better.

It didnít have a huge launch because it was merely OK, but apparently support for it grew was the years went on.

It's an okay game.

It's a bit slow paced, but I like that for now. I'm just doing mining while I work up my skills. I'm going to try to get into Manufacturing, If I ever figure out how to do research.

If you need any Scordite...lemme know...I have a bunch Smile

PVP? I haven't seen actual combat yet...

I've killed a couple of Pirate Drones in the Tutorial...but that's it.

I want no part of creating, or running, any sort of guild. I'll happily participate, but I don't have the time or attention span to make such things a success, or even useful.

As for the chat channel thing, I think we can create our own chat channel without starting a corporation. I know I made one called BEB, but I don't know if anyone else can use it.

Speaking of everyone else... WHAT ARE YOUR NAMES?

just an FYI from what I hear, if you complete the training missions you get a free implant. I am in the process of doing them now.
