Chronicles Of An EVE Online Newbie

Hi everyone, Star Dust Cosplay here again with another article!
I recently started playing EVE Online, and I wasn't sure what to expect at first. Was it going to be a game similar to Star Trek Online? Would it just be Random Battles, or would it be more based on exploration? Needless to say, I was excited. I couldn't wait to get my hands on the keys and give the game a whirl!
First let me talk about one of my personal experiences. I really enjoy mining. I find it very relaxing and peaceful. What is mining, you ask? It's where you collect ore from asteroids in space, and sell it for money, process it into minerals, or use it for building things. The better your character becomes at mining, the more money you make. I find it really fun. Mining may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it is certainly mine.
Speaking of tea, if you like tea check out a previous article of mine:
Onto the next thing in the wonderful world of EVE Online. What's something that almost every game has? Well missions of course! I really enjoy the missions. they're fun and interesting, and full of action. You go to an agent and start a conversation with them and they can give you different missions. You could get missions such as bringing back certain cargo or maybe to bring back a prisoner to your agents base. Or perhaps even just killing some bad guys such as pirates who are up to no good. Its always different. and the longer you stay with missions with the same agent the more trust you can build with them. its really a lot of fun.
Another fun thing that I like to do in the game is called 'ratting'. It's where you travel to different asteroid belts, and in these belts you kill and fight enemies called pirates. When they are destroyed you can loot/salvage what you find. You can loot anything and everything from bullets to special items.
Those are just some basic things I enjoyed from being a first time EVE Online player. I know there's a lot more to discover and check out and experience in the game, and I intend to find out what it is!
So far the experience of EVE has been really great. It's even more fun when you game with someone. I for one enjoy playing EVE with my girlfriend. We have a lot of fun together doing missions, looting, mining, and exploring the universe of EVE Online together.
It's a great universe out there and you should check it out. I would recommend this game to anyone and everyone that is looking for a fun and challenging game to play! :)
