It’s been over a month since I first drifted out into the open space of EVE Online. My growth in the game is noticeable, though it feels like I’ve barely scratched the surface of how much there is to do. Still, progress is being made, and I found a niche that I enjoy, so perhaps that’s enough at this point.
This isn’t about just me, though, but more about some strange friends I made as I delved further into this storied space simulator.
It all started when I realized just how much time I’d need to dedicate so that I could give EVE a proper trial before passing judgment. It’s not a game you can simply hop in and understand everything at work, so it was going to take at least a couple days of playtime in order to grasp enough concepts that I would feel comfortable discussing the game at length.
