So there I was, sitting at the laptop, getting all ready and mentally ready to get blown to bits in a relative cheap ship. So what to do as a newbie looking to get his feet wet?
Actually, no freakin’ idea. I love the idea of solo-pvp. I don’t mind waiting a long time, I don’t mind searching for optimal targets, I don’t mind the solitude at all. But truth be told, what the hell are you supposed to do as a noob who is fresh from his trial account?
So I spoke to my new friend ingame, and he suggested joining a corporation. Yes, I had considered this as well, but the fact is, I have a stressy job where I have to monitor and constantly fetch after other people to get stuff done etc, the last thing I want in my free time is joining a corporation and tadaa, having another responsibility towards fellow corporate members …
It’s not that I hate other people, it’s more a case of “I have to endure them during work hours, I don’t have to endure them in my free time”. I know, it sounds like a crappy thing to say. If you ever got to know me better, you would probably understand better.
So, options …
Red vs Blue
Is a constant war thing between 2 corporations, specifically intended to be so.
Seems like fun, only a certain deathtrap if you ask me
Brave Newbies Inc.
Sounds fun. A corporation where new people are welcome, and you get to tag along etc …
Either choice seems like joining a mega-corporation with a shit load of members. In the dog eat dog world of New Eden, that actually sounds like a smart thing to do, but is that what I really want? Not sure.
So what did I do yesterday? I bought several skill books like social and connections in the hopes they will get me to a level 2 security agent faster. And getting my hands on some more ISK won’t hurt either. Next up is starting the epic mission arc for the sisters of EVE. As it seems, completing this is a good way to fund your first PVP ships.
I’m still up for debate on the corporation thing. Any suggestions?
