@giantstalker: I would totally disagree on plex being the main incentive to play the game. If you come into eve looking at it from a standpoint of "im going to play this game so much that I'll make it free" it will become soul crushing and you'll bounce right off it. Play to Pay to Play is soul crushing and involves grinding no matter what way you cut it.

@deathtrap: Eh, if you ever need help or people to hang out with kite co is pretty good for that. If you're worried about getting back into the game drop me a line.

Just an update for anybody who might be rolling through this thread and wondering what is going on in Kite Co. You might wonder what we are up to but I have good news. We are alive and well and still spacing it up. As you may or may not have seen, we recent acheived an awesome long term goal of ours. Check out This Thread for more info. We anchored our own station that we live out of. Its something that very few people get to do in this game and we pooled our resources and built something that can never be destroyed (under current game mechanics). Its a home of our own and we're focused on making it a good place to be for new players. We are still part of the brave collective which is a very newbie-centric corp that helps provide content for all time zones and all styles of player. We've still got our new duder programs to help the newest of new players get the stuff they need to jump start having fun in game and we also have a freebie ship handout program so that no matter what skill level you are you can always participate. We'd love to have you as part of the "Space Guild!"

New Duder here, I just applied. It's been years since I played so I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions. My younger brother was playing my account for a long time so I'm actually well equipped. My in-game name is Seamus Finnigan.

P.S. I LOVE what you guys did for Ryan Davis and that got me motivated to play again! Good work!


Awesome! We're looking forward to seeing you around. Jester Royal should be in contact with you when you log on.

Yes. Thats me!

Ill just repeat what i said in the bomb thread. I'm super excited for new blood! I started really digging into giant bomb about the time patrick showed up and I've really enjoyed the content he brought. As long as you guys bring your own perspective on things and aren't afraid to be yourself (even if that is "bad at videogames" or hating yoshi with a white hot passion) everything is going to turn out fine. Take the criticism with a grain of salt because there's a far greater nonvocal majority who likes ya just fine. Congratulations and good luck!

@giantstalker: You should wander around in the bad side of space more. Getting jumped is pretty common. So much nulsec feels like a dark alley. You might be fine but someone will probably try to shank you.

@i_stay_puft: You're welcome! It was pretty exhilarating. It feels way more meaningful when there's something actually on the line.

I hate change just as much as the next person.... Yep... thats just about it.

Fingers crossed it blossoms into great content without dulling a lot of what I've really enjoyed.

@gnu2000: Giant bomb didn't go to fanfest this year but it didn't go unrepresented. Woot!

Hey, everyone!

School is ending and I bet you were thinking to yourself. "All this free time in summer... What ever can I do with it all?" We'll CCP's got your answer. They've recently introduced a recall program. You can start up the game for 7 days and get your feet wet again. Its only good for you guys who have been gone for 6 months but there sure are a lot of you guys! Kite and the brave collective are doing interesting things in eve. We are part of the HERO coalition and are actively taking a decent chunk of space. Its a chance to try to be a part of growing power in eve. You should come back and give it a shot! And get shot! If you have any questions please let me know.

Recall Program

Catch eve fever! (get it.. because.. Catch is the name of the space we are taking.. right? no? Okay..)
