14.95, but you can buy plexs in game and turn those in and essentially play for free.

The graphics are great on this. Losing money to aggressive players kinda sucks though. Not a big fan of PvP on the sort of thing where you take a long time to build up.

Its pretty tough to get killed unless you do something stupid.

Like driving a 300 mil cargo in a 1mil industrial. Or taking a freighter to nullsec etc.

Even then, i live in a wormhole, where it is the land of milk and honey, on the other hand, there are lots of people here that want to try to kill you...

Just make 400 mil mining gas

I love living in NBSI 0.0. It's safer than empire and low sec. I can carebear to my hearts content and then switch to pew pew when that gets old. Go mine a bit or trade.

I sold my soul to CCP for another tour, but damn things are different!

Wandering about in my Raven with no idea what the hell is happening!

I played EVE in the beta and at launch for a year after. I was in a military corp and we had a great time "playing war".

There were a couple things that got to me though. I have not been back in a few years so things may have changed.

Space, it just got so boring. I know there are different areas of space but it is all just about the same. The planets aren't anything special either.

The game is hard to get into for a new person. Unless you have some friends who are willing to take you in and give you everything you need, prepare to learn the hard way.

It takes so much time to feel you did something. I do like the skill training but it just means that no matter how much you play or how smart you are you will never speed up that process.

Combat is fun but very unforgiving. Depending on what you are playing as you can just be doing your thing then in 1 second you can be dead. This gets worse and worse the more people you have in PvP and when you get blown up in this game you have to go get a new ship. Don't get me started on the lag. When I played big battles were a lag fest and that just helped you die faster. It is not like other mmos where you just spawn again and get right back into the fight.

All that being said I think the game is a fantastic step out of the box and I enjoyed it for a while. I don't have the time to play this game anymore but I can understand why people dig it.
