I just startet to play EVE Online using the 14 days Trial and I wanted to share my experience a little bit with you. In my past I tried a lot of different MMORPGS and had allways my fun. I heard that the beginning is a little bit tough at EVE Online but until now I am happy with the tutorials.
Well it is essential to play the tutorials, they offer, after the basics tutorial, the whole possibilities to deside what you prefer to play. I had an idea how to play my character, but right now I did at least 1 Mission from every tutorial.
EVE Online gives you the possibility to talk to your "agent" wich has a certain specialisation: Industry and Mining, Scouting, Fighting or Business. I will let you know wich will be my preferred path, right now every one has his advantages and, you get a whole lot of equipment to start with ;)
