I play EvE. The community in that game is the highest educated I have ever come across. Some of the people that play the economic side of that game are amazing. I'd take stock tips from them any day.

:)

p.s. just repost, they won't move it in my experience.

Ah, EVE. Played that for a few months, and it was interesting, especially the economics. I think they could do a lot to improve the game, as a lot of it was hurry up and wait, such as mining times. Etc.

Really is a wonderful game. If anyone needs proof that fiat currencies don't work, play this game, and look at what your ISK buys you. :D

I've played off and on for a while. I just got back with it. Since it's one of those games you can play casually and still advance pretty easily.

I'm training astrogeology V right now, going to do mining barge V next. that's a month training time, I haven't played at all the whole time!

:P

Really don't want to carebear it with a hulk but the money I can make casually is enough to fund my evil piracy plans without having to worry about losing good ships and modules.

Muahahah!

heheh, yeah I have the same devious plot. I'm about 3 hours away from piloting a hulk. Still need mining upgrades 4 and a few odds and ends to make it worth my while, but once I fit it with 2 MLU's I'll be raking in the cash. Just gotta train for t2 mining crystals :eek:

I got bored with EVE before my free trial period ran out. The concept is really good, but if I want to sit around and do busy work to make a few bucks I'll go to my real job.

Same with WoW. Too much running back and forth, not enough blood and guts.

But hardcore EVE players would be perfect targets for Ron Paul free market message.

I'm 2 weeks from the hulk, not sure how long till t2 crystals. I do have t2 strip miners though. I also have ice mining V and refining V. I feel dirty having all these industrial skills but what can I do, a buddy was using my account to mine and trained it up while I was on a few month AFK.

To use a particular crystal you need to have the ore processing skill to at least lvl 1 for the tech 1 crystals and lvl 4 for the tech 2 crystals.

I have a vanity corp (me myself and I) and some basic corp skills. I'm not the most experienced player but just throwing it out there. Not interested in leading a corp much either, but like I said would be fun to play w/ Ron Paul players and would be happy to hand CEO to anyone dedicated. The corp name is really cool (Shadow Tribe ... ooooo skerry) and I'd hate to give it up. As it is once I start playing more again I'm going to have to leave for another corp anyways.

So I'm down for whaaatever. I just like having fun.

Corp HQ or office is: wherever you want it I really don't care. I'm playing so little right now since all my corpmates left for the wow expansion. It would be cool to get some RP eve players going though so I'm more than happy to help establish a corp and/or handover CEO for the absolutely kick ass name "Shadow Tribe" (I really am partial to it hehehe). Since I already have corp skills and ethnic relations trained etc. it would save some time on the leadership training to get it established.

Cyan Aura <-- that's me.

Darkfall community especially their off topic are the biggest Ron Paul supporters. Break down is like 80% Libertarian 10% Dem and 10% Rep. Plus any of you game junkies once DF comes out I would be happy to play with you.

DF is ALL about freedom to do w/e you want. Crafters can make anything and one character per server so not to devalue crafting.

Best thing to do is to flag it (see the red triangle off to the right).

Great game! I played for a few years, but I'm not on much at all anymore. Since I've gone over to Linux it's a royal pain in the butt. Every time EVE does an update it completely mucks up my Wine installation and I've gotten kinda tired of fixing it. You are right about the player base. Definitely one of the higher educated and smartest populous of any game. Had many a good time, but alas my carrier and freighter are just sitting in spacedock collecting space dust, with a few billion isk in my alt corp wallet. I figure I'll come back some time though. Long live the Forsaken Empire (corp.)!!!

Back to topic of the original post.

It seems like all their debating about is a strong new leader like Ron Paul. The consesus of that thread is how horrible America is becoming and how bad it will be if we have another retard in office.

If anybody is registered on that forum, please inform them of Ron Pauls policies.

Lol, I played eve during beta and about 6 months after release. If anyone else played around that time you might remember my corp (M3G4) and our blockade of OBE. Followed up later by the blockade / lag-cade by (Mo0), which had to be broken by GMs in battleships. Which at the time was huge since everyone was still flying lv 2/3 cruisers at best.

What turned me off to the game was the fact that it was shipped and sold as an incomplete game. It was a mining sim for nearly a year after release... thats pretty much it.

I looked at it recently on a free trial and was impressed by a few things that had changed. However the core of the gameplay was still pretty much the same, and they never solved the fleet battle problems, nor the gate ganking problem. The economic side was pretty interesting and complex. I find it cool that they hired a real economist to help shape and mitigate the market, and didn't rely completely on the old totally player based models which always collapse.
