So I recently decided to pick up Eve Online again and started fresh with a new character (Minmatar, see image for my pilot) and I can’t remember for the life of me why I stopped playing (I’m sure it will eventually come back). If you did not hear, Eve now has a free to play option which so far I don’t mind. I learned about the restrictions and while depending on how little or how much you play, you’ll eventually hit the limitations of the free to play option, but like wow you can use the ingame currency “ISK” to buy the premium currency “PLEX” and in turn exchange 500 of that to get an Omega Token which gives you 30 days of subscription time which removes all limitations.
I must say I am enjoying playing Minmatar with their projectile turrets (this is the first time I ever made/played Minmatar anything), I really like that they don’t require capacitor energy to fire which means I can use that energy for shield regen or using my afterburner!
Currently I’m using a Rifter, I really do like the way the ship looks, most of the ships in eve I don’t like because they aren’t symmetrical so when I find a ship I do like, I tend to wanna play in it forever. Sadly, the Rifter is Frigate which means eventually I will have to find another pretty pretty ship, maybe the Sisters of Eve Cruiser (though that’s Hybrid Turrets I think).
