I don't usually do intro posts, but I feel like I'm gonna be around for a while, so I figured I'd let everybody know that I'm here, and I'm single.
I mean I don't belong to any organization. Just did some forum prowling and was astonished at some of the things that are already happening before anyone's even played the game. But yeah, I'll probably be looking for one to join? Ideally, I'd like to start one myself, but every time I start gaining momentum on a guild or clan of some sort, I end up losing interest in the game and my webserver gets filled with unfinished site projects. I'm also not sure I could get enough of my friends to buy into this, especially this early on, so I think hopping in an already-rolling bandwagon might work out this time.
Been following loosely following development with skepticism (I've been hurt too many times) since I heard about it last year, probably around November/December. A friend of mine and myself have been searching for a space-based multi-player building game where things actually, y'know.. work... I hate to mention Space Engineers, but I really enjoyed the concept. The execution was poor. Very poor. Beside the point: this looks fantastic and I want to play it with a crapton of people who also like diddling around in spess.
I plan on pledging Gold sometime in August to help out and get access.
Side-question: can anyone unbiased give me a runover of who the big kahunas are, what they do, stand for, etc. or would I be better off trying to find their recruitment threads? Either way, hello and thanks if you can do that.
Additional background: I never played Eve so I won't get any Eve-based mumbo jumbo you might spew at me (though I haven't seen any yet, other than the PLEX references in the business model post)
