It's probably due to the massive surge in activity due to the expansion.  Have you checked the official forum?

I still can't leave Amaar space it says the warp gates are closed to traffic and find another route. Is this normal or a bug or is it i to do with the patch?

It is due to the heavy traffic there. If you get the pop-up telling you which system is locked down, add that system to your avoidance list in your autopilot settings (in the star map), the autopilot will re-route you around that system and allow you to continue on your way. Granted, it may take you on a sight seeing trip...but at least you're moving. smile

The latest dev post I could find about the issue (posted earlier today):

Quote
We are aware that many of you have experienced sudden performance issues when playing EVE and we have two teams on two different continents working around the clock attempting to resolve this. They are closing in on the problem and have identified two probable causes. At this time, we canít say when the performance issues will be fixed, but we will continue to keep you up-to-date as more information becomes available.

WTF?  Just got kicked off and now I'm 467 in the queue apparently!  I've never seen this on Eve before.  I hope they resolve these issues soon.

Edit: Tranquility is down.  They're aware and are working on it.  Man, now I won't get the bonus for the mission I was on, even though I literally just had to click "complete mission" to finish it.  crybaby

I'm back as SkyLander in game. Think I am considered the vet and a lot of the other guys know I can help out with questions and stuff although I'm pretty rusty on things.

Just send me an evemail or message me in game and I'll try to answer any questions and give some guidance. I know the huge learning curve with this game seems well, huge.

And I'm in the OO channel.

Good to see you again Skylander, you've always been a great wealth of info and advice.

If anyone hasn't done so already, please add your GT name to your bio and we can quickly see who's who, thanks!

I can't remember who I was discussing this with yesterday, but we were annoyed about only being able to have one "show info" box open at a time.  Well, your suggestion was good; it is an option that you now have to set.  Something like only allow one info window unless shift-clicked, or something.  I toggled it and now I get a new info window every time I ask for one.  That should be the default setting IMO!

After Tranquility crashed last night the devs managed to restore it in about 20 minutes which is fantastic work if you ask me.  So just before bed I was able to finish my mission, get the reward, and check on my training queue! \o/

Hehe.  Nice work, Raz.  For those who don't know, I have temporarily (since nobody was consulted) been made personnel manager so that both Razgon and I are able to approve applications to the corp.  So hopefully nobody will be waiting around long after applying.

Seriously, thanks, Raz. Will try to make the trip tonight, but I forgot that my brother is coming in to town this weekend for the big Audrey's First Birthday Bash so I won't get on as much this weekend as I had hoped I would. But I am going to make time to try out my shiny new rocket launchers.  icon_twisted

Good idea on adding our forum names to our bio...will do that tonight, too.

If you get a chance to log in, you need to change the Corp settings to allow other races. You have a few foreign applicants hanging around the office lobby. smile

I've never given Eve a try before but, after following this thread (and the other Eve threads), it seems like a good time to check it out.
               
I will probably go with their free 14 day trial, but I wanted to ask if anyone had an extra buddy key. If I do end up subbing (not a sure thing), it would be nice to let a GTer get the free 30 days.

Finally got my account going again here.

I'm already in as Onos Terramander.

I need to re-base to around the HQ for now. I was HighSec mining in Amarr space, but Gallente is good too. There is a 0.6 system 4 jumps from corp HQ that has some Omber plus the usual HighSec stuff. I also have a Moa cruiser parked at Todaki in Caldari space.

I was hoping to get some time tonight, but it looks like it'll be tomorrow. I downloaded a 1.3gb file from the EVE link and installed it, but then when I launched it, it looks like it's now downloading another 1.389gb patch.

Too late now, but this is the full download, I think. 1.9gigs.

For everyones info:

Via Steam you can get a 21 day trial, week longer than the others.  And yes i did dload it last night.  Always wanted to try it out.  I have no idea what i'm doing smile  Is there any particular advantage in what race to choose?  Space is scary, i need someone to hold my hand so would one be easier to hook up with the rest of you with?  IE doesn't start on the far end of the galaxy?

Race wise, the corp HQ is in Gallente space...so Gallente would be the easiest race to get a group with the others, but regardless of which race you take, join the OO channel and the guidance is there. smile

Your link of the day to the starter guide to EVE Online:

http://www.battleclinic.com/forum/index.php/topic,3510.0.html

(you'll see a download link in the first post - and no, you don't have to register to grab it)

It's slightly outdated, but the stuff that it's missing won't affect you at all for the first few months.

Additionally, you'll want this: EVEMon. It'll let you keep track of any skill training and such you do, and let you plan out for future training. It's not as needed as it was before thanks to the skill training queues, but it'll help in many ways.

My character name is Staja. I've submitted my corporate application (goal-oriented, works well with others, dedicated worker, loves hot cocoa, and enjoys long walks on the beach). smile
         
I got in for a couple hours this afternoon. So far, so good. I've queued up a bunch of skills, done a few starter quests, started down the industry career path and got a kick out of zipping around the galaxy.
   
I do have a couple of questions that I didn't want to clog up the game chat channel with:
         
1. I have heard from several sources, and heard again during the game chat, that it is important to spend time building up "learning" skills. I'm not sure exactly which ones those are. I found the skill queue and have been training things like Refining, Science, Industry, Mining, Shield Operations, etc. Could someone explain to me what the "learning" skills are referring to?
   
2. Do you lose credits if your ship is destroyed by another player? I see the wallet in the space station, but I couldn't find a way to "bank" it. So, I'm wondering if you always keep your credits, even when your ship is destroyed, or if there is a way to bank credits for safekeeping, if they can be taken in pvp.

So, I'm wondering if you always keep your credits, even when your ship is destroyed, or if there is a way to bank credits for safekeeping, if they can be taken in pvp.

1. Learning skills are those in the "learning" skill tab. They consist of one "Learning" skill, plus the skills that boost your stats like Intelligence, Perception, Charisma, etc. Since every skill in the game is based off 2 stats, the higher your stat, the faster you learn a skill. It is a good idea to train up these when you have some time available - they don't make you better at anything, just let you train the more meaty skills faster.

2. The money you have in your wallet is basically in a bank account. You can't lose it if you ship blows up or you are podded. Tangentially, it is wise to insure your ships, since the ship is gone if it is destroyed, and you'll want to buy another. Insurance recoups most or all of the buy price of a new, un-fitted ship, depending on the level of insurance you purchase (basic, bronze, silver, gold, platinum).
