" Man, I tried to get into EVE back in summer when it was $2 on steam, but I just don't know how I am supposed to play it. It's pretty hard to understand the menus and what's needed to do stuff. I would resub if I had a clue on how to play. Any noob tips? The game seems incredible when you read stories about it, just like you say, but when you play it it's just so daunting when you see all the shit you can do. "If you ever did complete the tutorial missions that you're given in the beginning, they've explained most of the basic stuff that you as a new player needs to know. After that, look for a corporation and join it, since that's the real way of getting to know the game and the community (Head over either ingame and look for offices in stations or have a look at the forums.) And as the Senior Producer Arnar of CCP said, "We want to keep EVE as it is. EVE is like a rubrics cube, and we give it to you, and then say go f**k your self.", so yeah, it will be hard, but it's worth the struggle.
