A true sandbox MMO that will definitely eat up more time than you intend. There's so much to do and so many viable play styles (industry, exploration, PvE, PvP, and trade to name a few big ones) that there's really no excuse to be bored. You can micro-manage as much, or as little, as you want.Don't Buy the Starter Pack
It sounds like a deal, but it's not. I bought it when I originally started playing, and trying to move that amount of stuff around as a newbie is more trouble than it's worth. Go to reddit or just about any other EVE site and ask for a trial code. That will give you 21 days to test the waters free, as opposed to the usual 14. Even if you subscribe 2 days after starting the trial, You'll retain any leftover trial days after subscribing.Play Through the Tutorials, Really
Every EVE vet will tell you that skipping the tutorials is about the dumbest thing you can do. While it is a wall of text (they are fixing it...it's already better than it used to be, which is saying something), it will teach you the basics of just about everything in EVE. You'll also get a good handful of ships to fly around in and a nice chunk of money to start off with. See above - starter pack isn't worth it, and will cause more confusion than problems it solves.The Skill System Doesn't Screw Over New Players
It's easy to look at EVE's skilling system and say that it gives veterans an unfair advantage. It doesn't. You'll probably spend the first 2-3 months getting all of the "core" skills out of the way, during which you can still have a lot of fun and do a lot of things - a week into the game I was flying around with small PvP fleets (5-10 people) and meaningfully contributing. After the "core" stuff is out of the way, any further differences are on the scale of 2-5%. There's much more going on in combat that's going to dictate the outcome than skills.Bigger isn't Better
It's easy to get caught up in the excitement of flying huge ships in massive battles, but rushing to that point is the easiest way to ruin your experience. You can fly those ships around, but you will be far from effective, which is a quick route to discouragement. Start out in the small ships, learn the game, get blown up. Frigates are cheap for a reason, and new and old players both fly them more than you'd think. Most common advice for someone interested in PvP? Fit 50 cheap frigates and go get them all blown up.Dive in and Have Fun!
You will make tons of mistakes while playing (I know I still do), and you will lose ships. In the words of Ms. Frizzle, "Take chances, make mistakes, get messy!" It's the best way to enjoy EVE.
