    The downside of alpha clones

    It's not the skill restrictions, or the inability to cloak. It's the number of halfwits flooding starter corp chat going 'HURR DURR HOW I SHOT ENEMIE'. Seriously, I just had some guy ask how to load ammo into his turrets.


    I know EVE has a steep learning curve, but come on! Fiddle around with shit and figure the basic stuff out for yourself. I never had to ask how to fit mods onto a ship (inb4 badfits, shut up Spank) or how to undock or load ammo or anything like that, I used the brain I was fucking born with and FIGURED SHIT OUT. Starter corps are there to help you, not hold your friggin' hand.

    Get out of a starter corp if you don't like helping newbies.

    At no point did I say I don't help or like helping newbies. My beef is with halfwits who won't poke around and at least try to figure stuff out before clogging up corp chat with "HURF DURF HOW DO I LOAD AMMO". Is that really so much to ask? I'll gladly help noobs who want to learn about different mining yields and ore types, or who want to enter the wonderful world of PI, but really basic stuff is something one should be reasonably expected to find out for oneself.

    It's one thing to be a noob, it's another to be totally clueless.

    So you are whinging about people like you....

    pro tip these sort of idiots existed when I first started playing in 06, they were there when I stopped in 12, and they will still be there when ever EVE shuts down.

    TLDR: you are a pony retard so shut the fuck up.

    TLDR: he doesn't like kids.


    Then again, who does. Other than for purposes of disposable cheap labour and child soldiers.
    J'ai violé votre vaisseau spatial. C'était amusant....!

    EVE once was about internet spaceships. Then those became serious business.
    Now all that is left is serious business, and spaceships are docked for two years till after the Dust of Incarna

    Yes, how horrible to get many new players who want to learn how to play our game.

    So which starter corp do you have personal experience with? CAS has had 1800+ in chat, and sure a lot of discussion has been from people new to the game asking or help on things we take for granted, but also a lot of discussion has been prompted by issues with the NPE, as well as a lot of discussions about the philosophical/existential nature of playing EVE that cannot be discovered by simply right-clicking everything. Pretty typical stuff for CAS, really.

    I'm curious what the other starter corps look like, as I've heard they're historically ghost-towns and aren't followed by many vets like CAS corp chat is.

    Congratulations. Now shut the fuck up and go back to your isolation thread.
