Trying EQ2 Again

Well, after a little deliberation, I think I’m going to give EQ2 a shot. I have a character on Mistmoore, but I think I’m going to restart and do the whole thing over again with EoF and probably play a Fae. Anyways, I was wondering if any of you out there would be willing to give me a step up or a guild to join. More than that though, I just want to have a group of people I can jump right in with and get to know a little bit better. Let me know if you’re interested.

P.S. I’m giving the EvE tutorial a shot, but I’m realizing that it’s not for me. While I am fairly confused, that isn’t the reason that I’m not going to play this game. The problem is more that there isn’t any land to use and no avatar which I have a bit of a problem with for whatever reason. I appreciate the depth and enormity of this game, and I can see what people love it, but its simply not my game. I have an appreciation for sci-fi though and I am excited for Stargate Worlds, which is a very different game.

    Eve will be adding avatar play at some point. But yeah, there’s no real avatar in Eve. You aren’t even “your ship”. Since there’s no dogfighting or direct control — to fight someone, I check my target locks, set to keep 10K away from him and turn my gats on — maybe tie in a shield generator or two if he has friends or I’m being flanked — the game is fairly intellectual. Then again, I’m only three days in to my own free trial, so what do I really know.

    Wing Commander isn’t Eve’s game. Eve is about crafting, playing the market, doing contracts, building value for your corp. It’s a simulation of the high level financial, business and political world and as such is one of the most true-to-real-life MMOs I know. I mentioned in my Eve article today that I work in the bond market and was astounded to find a fairly workable simulation of it in Eve.

    Wow, wrong comment for wrong post. Anyway, if you start on Befallen, I can’t offer you a guild (unless you’re 70) but I can help you out a little. A lot of bloggers seem to be on AB though.

    hehe, np, I might take you up on that, but it might be a little while before I buy EoF, I am really pleased to see that for whatever reason, I have it running much better (graphically) than before, and its like a completely different game. I’ll let you know what I decide when I buy it, thanks for the offer đŸ™‚
