I’ve been playing EVE off and on (more off, than on) since 2009 – and I decided to go back through my older posts and note some of the moments that stood out to me over the years.

  • March 18, 2009 – my very first day in EVE Online. I did the ancient tutorial, and wasn’t sure if I was going to keep playing. I had a 21 day trial account back then.
  • May 20, 2010 – I’m flying my very first hulk, and I was SO excited. It felt like it took forever to train for.
  • June 5, 2010 – My very first trip to Jita, where I felt TINY compared to the number of people around.
  • June 6, 2010 – I jumped into my first WH, and did some mining. What a rush!
  • June 9, 2010 – PI releases for the first time
  • December 31, 2010 – I finished training to fly an Orca, and finally was able to afford the ship, too
  • October 30, 2011 – Ice mining for the first time
  • February 15, 2013 – I finally finish training to fly a Tengu (I still fly this ship as my main ship type)
  • February 18, 2015 – I return after a few years away, and start working with R&D agents
  • February 20, 2015 – I attempted to stream EVE, and some viewers reprimanded me for my Tengu fit, so I changed it.
  • November 22, 2015 – After another break, I’m still ranting about R&D agents
  • March 26, 2016 – 10 days of EVE for .99 (so I return, again, briefly)
  • March 9, 2019 – My very first relic site
  • March 10, 2019 – Lost my Tengu to C5 rats, whewps.
  • June 11, 2020 – I start doing a few more relic/data sites (and promptly take another break)
  • March 13, 2024 – I return (yet again) to EVE after a 4 year break, my longest away from the game.

I guess maybe the 100th attempt is the one that sticks? In those years I belonged mainly to one corporation (for 11 years), and they’re no longer active, which is why I made the decision to join Signal Cartel. Everyone tells me that EVE is a social game, and I believe that those social aspects are what keep people playing (so we’ll see how it goes). It has been pretty interesting to read up on how things have changed over the years (and what has remained the same).

Fly safe! o7
