What to do in EVE Online – A Summary July 15, 2012

Posted by Wilhelm Arcturus in entertainment, EVE Online.

I was on the Something Awful MMO forum looking at opening posts.  Each game has such a post (or, often, several posts) that are full of information about the game in question.  For example, I mentioned in a previous post that the EverQuest thread may contain the best summary of the game ever.  A lot of the game threads start off similarly jam packed with details.

But not the EVE Online thread.  It is less about the game and more about the reputation the Goons have in game and why you should come join in on the fun.  This is probably natural enough, as the EVE Goons have their own enormous wiki about EVE Online, the scale and depth of which is amazing.  One of the best benefits of being in my alliance is that we have full access to that wiki.

But in skimming through the EVE OP, I did find one nice item that helps explain EVE Online.

What to do in EVE Online – A Chart

That chart shows the high level options you have in EVE Online.  It even includes scamming.

Edit: As Sovos noted in the comments, there is a web version of this chart that links to the appropriate Evelopedia article or other reference page.

Actually the original flowchart is more than a pic, its a set of links to the wiki

Goonwiki is a great reference source even for outsiders, although the occasional “WTF n00b, U should pod URself” interjection in an entry does tend to remind me that taking anything Goon-related at face value can be a mistake.

And for those who are not Goons there are a few pirated versions of the wiki out there. Some of them are quite out of date though so use with caution.

Mind you now that I think of it wouldn’t it be a very goon thing to do to to “leak” a version of the wiki with deliberate mis-information in it: “Don’t fit electromagnetic hardeners on shield tanked ships because no one ever uses that type of damage “?
