Viewing the markets IS the problem....load all that data into an external program and create a margin trading bot with that info. Park your char at the market terminal and Run the bot 24/7

That's assuming you can do all the operations remotely (within limited range). If you need to physically access trading unit to buy/sell, then afk bot won't work (unless you manage to program path-finding too).

Nope, that's why I said: "Park your char at the terminal". 

Just open the trade/market window and you're good to go

Holy smokes I just tried it. In the tutorial I "redeemed" a skill book and I injected it. I don't know what this did, but apparently I used it wrong because I cannot continue. So I'm done I guess :/

Yes, I am. Why? Because EVE Online is a game with a very strong economy and I can learn much things by playing. Just only take a look on the quantity of blogs tutorial and more https://mmogo24.blogspot.com/2018/09/eve-isk-per-hour-estimates.html articles related with EVE. Whole estimates about farming, whole economy, industry. It is just awesome for me.

It's hard to play when everyone treat you like a spy. Playing alone is just boring.

You expect this game to be any different?

This game will be much, much worse because somebody actually has to dedicate time to mining, planning, and building.

 

Playing alone is a godsend, just steal everyone else's resources. That's why BOO is going to succeed; it's built off a code of loose rules and general respect, not this "thou shalt not be slavered" that most """"diplomatic"""" orgs have.

Yes, I expect DU to be different. In EVE you can't prove your worth by designing and programming ships. If you are a pacifist then you are left alone in EVE.

I expect DU to be different to, however I've also played EVE, as mostly an industrialist, but proved my worth in other ways - however, I also defended 'our patch' when needed. There are many ways to prove you worth in EVE, as there will be in DU.

 

For example, I did little things like this from time to time:

 

 

 

Im sure you can find ways of becoming valued, but more importantly - do your own thing, with or without others, do what makes you happy, dont pander to the group, or find another group. To quote an old proverb "Do what you wanna do, be what wanna be - yeaaah!"

 

;)

I left EVE for for many reason at the time I believe it was 2012, I had 3 accounts One all around Main account one Freighter Jump pilot and one to run incursions with the Valhalla Project(for currency) . EVE has always had major problems with griefing. However, when they came out with cloaked ships it gave the griefers the upper hand. Between that, the cost of the accounts and the extreme complexity of all things EVE I decided to just stop and find my gaming entertainment elsewhere.  It just stopped being fun!

I Still do and enjoy every minute. Tho it seems like most people here that played it were solo or industrails. and only quit do to gankers "griefers". As a mostly pvper in Eve i dont see the issue with gankers. it helps keep the isk flowing. ya it sucks if you dye with 20B+ but at the same time you should have know that flying a hauler worth that much in high sec was risky. its like the people that still get baited on Freeports. if you would have just takin 2mins to check the system history you would have known going there was a death sentence.

 

But all i can say is i hope DU does not take the albion online approach and make the a Green zone were you cant attack any one no matter what. all im saying is if i see someone with realy expansive gear/stuff in a safish zone clearing sites/get resources. i should be able to get a group of people to go kill them for it.

P.s. Its not the games fault for not catering to carebears. your not the source of income your just part of the content for the big bois that live dangerously.

As long as the game also provides at least some of  the mechanics that real life provides for civilizations to deal with anti-social behaviors. Those who choose to work together in a civilized manner to build and create rather then hunt and destroy, need to be able to tag reputation and checkpoints so that a civilized planet's defenses can just blow you out of the sky if you bring your self-serving attitude into our space.

 

In other words it's about balance.

If the outer rim is dangerous for the civilized then civilized space must be dangerous for the deviants.

The regios of EVE where you would expect to be safer are actually the more unpredictable and ruthless. I'd agree that  a lot of the stories and sentiments heard against here are based on bad experience, carelessness or general ignorance.

 

I am an explorer in EVE, I make my income from finding and running high end exploration content and also enjoy the roams and community events my corp provides. I have fun in EVE and enough of it. EVE will give you exactly what you put in, if you choose to not put in the effort and try to make it the easy way you'll not enjoy your time.

 

It's interesting to read some of the comments here as it appears in quite a few cases people have a misconception that it will be better in DU. It won't be as DU will be far more unpredictable, dangerous, harsh and unforgiving than EVE ever will be. If you fail to grasp the basic concepts in EVE, you will likely get very much lost in DU.

Why would anyone play such a game?  What would be the fun in that?

Rest assured, that (In my not so humble opinion) there is far more depth to the possibilities in DU then in Eve. There will be a large group of players, and developers, who because of their love of building and creating will be working very hard to make a game that is fun for everyone.

 

There will also, of course, be some players who only care about making it fun for themselves. We can hope that the developers  continue working towards mechanics that allow for more success for the former then the later.

Comparing EVE to DU really stops at both being MMO sandbox style games in a sci-fi setting (aka spaceships). The two are completely different games even when NQ is very clearly taking quite a few queues from EVE.

 

Saying that DU has more depth than EVE IMO only means you do not understand or realize what EVE actually offers beyond pewpew. EVE is an established game with mechanics and possibilities which will never be available in DU as much as the other way around. People have created gameplay in EVE which was never foreseen by the developers and yes, virtually any path you would like to take in EVE is open to you to pursue.

 

For now EVE is an established universe with a profitable model for the developer. While the promise of DU is fantastic, it will still have to prove it self and in many ways is even more niche and nerdville central than eve is (and that is saying something).

Hate to be a ball buster... but for those who do not know...

 

Its official - https://variety.com/2018/gaming/news/ccp-games-pearl-abyss-sale-eve-online-1202936322/

 

It has been sold, in a way it makes me glad I retired when it went F2P as I wont be around to see its degradation and eventual ruination. I would not be surprised to see wide spread changes coming soon.

There's been quite a few bittervets come out of the woodworks making wild speculative statements. Facts are CCP was sold to a gaming oriented investor by a purely financial oriented investor. They have not been independent for about 13 years.

 

The obvious memes aside, I doubt PA would want to destroy a profitable and viable model of operation for CCP. EVE is not BDO and while either can probably benefit from what the other birings to the table they could never run under the same model. PA has had a big issue with PR, customer support and marketing, areas where CCP actually can teach them a thing or two.

 

If you actually read the article, which pretty much hits the nail on the head as far as what the CCP plans have been evolving towards over the past three or so years, it should be obvious this will be a good thing. Will there be more microtransactions? probably but that is not due to PA but more a progression of the road chosen several years ago. The restructure and rework of the core (GFX) engine has already started and is looking really good as seen in the current Abyssal instanced PVE content.

 

In two weeks it's time for EVE Vegas again and as usual myself and other attendees will be able to discuss these plans with the devs in person for three days. There will be lots of questions but I believe there will be a good bit of clarification and direction coming from these talks as has been the case in the past few years.

 

EVE will be around for many more years and will remain a standard in the SciFi MMO business for others to match and try to surpass.

used to play eve but seems last year or two have been a downward spiral of the game so hoping this game proves to be a great one so far it seems to be.. and hate to say it guys but all those "bitter old vets" coming out of the wood work have bee sitting waiting for a game to come out that could even compare to eve so with this having the ability to surpass it is getting ppl excited ...

But DU is nothing like EVE except for being a single persistent universe with a sci-fi setting and I believe those expecting the same type of gameplay and engagements will find they end up disappointed. DU is to EVE what a lemon is to a lime. Both citrus fruit but either very different to the other with equally different application (gameplay).
