Hook em while they're young...

So I've been trying to convince a few real life friends of mine to start playing Eve. Yesterday one of them decided to give it a shot. I talked about his character with him for a while, he's gonna be a pirate like me :p, so I helped him create a character where he could get started with piracy fairly quickly. I gave him a little money to help him get going and helped him purchase and fit a rifter. So he finishes the tutorials, gets his rifter, fits it as well as he can with his current skills, and then heads down to where I am. He and I meet up and I show him how to make instas and safespots, how to use the scanner, figure out his weapon ranges, all the basics. Then we decide its time to hunt.

We head out to a safespot and start scanning the belts. Ah hah! a Stabber! We warp into the belt, I in my vengeance and he in his rifter, and find the stabber sitting not 7km from us. I quickly lock it and warp scramble and then encourage him to start attacking it. When I see his autocannons begin pounding down the cruisers shield I instantly let loose with a barrage of rockets and laser fire. Seconds later the stabber is in pieces and the pod makes that ever so satisfying "squish" noise. Heading back to the safespot I teach him how I have an anchored cargo container there to drop off loot in between kills.

Emptying our holds we immediatly begin scanning only to find a probe in the belt we just left. Warping in we see he is 35km+ away from us... but maybe he doesnt notice we're there. As our afterburners quietly light and we slink in closer we see the probe is happily mining away with its lasers and drones.... We continue our approach, praying he doesnt see us, 34km.......32.......28........24...............then finally.....20km. Insta locked and warp scrambled, the probe has no choice but to just sit there for the volley and a half of rocket, turrent, and laser fire it takes for us to put him into his pod, then once again we hear that wonderful squish!

Collecting our loot and dumping it we once again resume scanning only to find a Blackbird happily ratting his life away in a belt. We warp in and end up just 3km away. Locking it we proceed to unleash hell onto the cruiser we're orbiting. He had an impressive shield tank, but it simply wasnt enough and once again the cruiser goes boom and the pod goes SQUISH!

2 cruisers and a frig with pods in under 15 minutes of pirating action, on his first night none the less, is not half bad imo. Later I found out how much actually he helped the fights when he asked a simple noob question: "how many of your weapons should you turn on in a fight cause I've only been turning on one gun?"

nech on :

I just recently started (like 2 days ago) and I am currently in the process of getting every MMO player I know and trust in RL to come start on EVE.

Already got a couple people to quit WoW.

This game is amazing. Hopefully I won't get discouraged by the brutal PvP as some people said I would, but to be honest, that is what I am looking for.

I will see you all, I plan on collecting some bounty on yall, and doing some pirating as well. Here's to the double standard.

Swethren on :

I've been working on a friend of mine back home since I started playing, I used to do RP with him so I know he would love EVE, but he's stuck in WoW and doesn't wana try anything else. He said he's "paid for it, so he's gonna play it".

Silly boy.

Kal on :

Wow, nice job! What a great introduction to Eve you've given him ;-)

Nuggan on :

A little update on this story, he went out and told about 4 other friends of mine about eve now so they are all gonna start playing!
