10 Things Every EVE Player Should Know (Courtesy of Mr. Kinux)

Because this is fantastic summary for new and old players, I thought I’d repost it just for emphasis. This was originally posted by CrazyKinux at his blog.

‘EVE Online veterans are all aware that it’s not the easiest MMORPG to jump into and that it’s got a steep learning curve, with a hardcore player following. So I’ve put together another list to help players understand the nature of EVE, before they set out to make a living in New Eden. A kind of reality check if you will.

  1. The only place where you are safe in EVE is either docked or offline, otherwise you’re mostly fair game.
  2. You will eventually get podded. It’s nothing personal.
  3. So make sure your clone is up to date
  4. At any given time, make sure you’re always training a skill.
  5. EVE is like a sandbox with landmines. Deal with it.
  6. You’re flying in a cocoon full of liquid, known as a pod. Not behind the controls of a ship.
  7. Flying a ship anywhere in EVE is like gambling, only fly what you’re willing to lose.
  8. CONCORD exists to punish, not protect.
  9. If you’re going to be in a low sec system for a while, create 2 or more safe spot, just in case.
  10. Pirates are not griefers, they’re as much a part of EVE as you are.

So there you have it. If you’re looking for a more extensive list, make sure to visit the “Tips and Advice” page that CCP has put together. They’ve got more tips and advice and provide additional details.

Fly safe, or die trying!’
