    That's one of the great things about EvE, if you can make enough ingame money, you can use it to buy 30 days of gametime, pretty swish if you ask me Smile
    Another good mmorpg is Guild Wars, once you buy the game, it's free (or at least it was), I havn't played it since my harddrive had a heartattack and died, I can't remember my logon deatils Sad

    Bearing in mind I take around an hour to solo level 3's.
    One of EvE's few downsides is you have to commit to a couple of hours a day at the minimum

    I have seen some pilots who Officer fit their Golem (Tech 2 Raven) and can run a level 4 in about 30 minuets.

    Since this is turning towards another EVE thread, although I have nothing against EVE (I love it ^-^) thought I'd change it up...QUICK! Favorite Super Smash Brothers character- GO!

    If we're talking Brawl, in order, Metaknight, Kirby, Bowser, Fox, Marth, Game and Watch.

    And the only real way to play SSB (of any generation) is stock lives on a random level with all items on (Medium).

    Stock vs Timed is just a preference, but items is a real part of the game. Saying that you're good when there aren't items is like saying you're good at chess when there aren't any knights or bishops. And randomization is a good thing; doesn't hurt card games, does it?

    I agree completely. Always use stock lives (usually 5-10) and NEVER play without items. That's what makes the game. Oh, and my personal fav's Ike.^^
