It all started about a month ago now on:http://www.octopusoverlords.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=16817
Eve online, when it was relaased was basically a mining simulator and a hellish game to get into and get started. Over the years the game's developed into an entirely different world where it's easy to get started and there's a million things to do. Players dont ever have to touch a mining laser if they choose not to. Combat, research, manufacturing, mining, corp management, dynamic trade in a 100% player economy that is strong and works well, support skills etc lead to many varied paths for characters to take and lots of teamwork in corporations.
So, about a dozen of us have signed up in the last 30 days from OO and joined a corporation run by Skylander, GeneralD and Evil bob. Skylander brought us in since he's an OOer too.
What this email is, is an open invitation for consolegolder's to come join us as well in the Eve Universe. There is about a 4-6 hours tutorial to help you get started and learn the basics after creating your character. It's highly worth doing for both the knowledge AND the rewards you get by the end of the tutorial stuff.
The overlords have a chat channel set up for people not in the corporation yet so you can contact us: Channel name Octopus Overlords password: brutesquad.
Eve has a 14 day trial thats readily available out there or you can also purchase a cd key off ebay for 5 bucks which gets you a full month of playtime.
Come check it out. Eve Online has developed into an incredibly fantastic MMO which is also truely suited to casual players as well. There's only one server (Eve has 70,000 subscribers and has had over 15,000 online simultaniously on it's one server with no lag.)
