Wow, did you assholes actually convince Zekk to come back?
Wow, did you assholes actually convince Zekk to come back?
Yes, he's back. Back again. Zekk is back. Tell your friends.
I played EVE online a few years ago, now I'd like to come back to check out all the new stuff I missed. As I'm not sure I'll have enough time in the following months I won't re-activate my old account yet and create a small trial.
Of course, if I could get invited in the RPS corp, that would be a real treat. I've been playing with the GW2 RPS guild and I really liked the mood, maybe I'll get the chance of experiencing it again in EVE !
Yes, I hath returned. Let the bells ring out for christmas. Or something, I'm no good at this stuff.
Interested in joining us? Want to meet new and interesting space types, and shoot them in the face? Join the channel 'RPS Community' in game. Don't be shy, we're all a bunch of really friendly dudes. The corp has existed for years purely to get new players into PVP, that's still what we're all about.
Sweatypitts covered just about everything in his wonderful post (it has bullet points and everything!) so I'm just going to shamelessly plagiarise him.
14-day free trials are available here: http://tinyurl.com/bk5olrv
For the more adventurous, 21-day free trials(+shiny goodies/in-game cash if you subscribe afterwards) are also available, just send me a pm for a buddy invite.
Our eve chat channel is 'RPS Community', come say hello.
When's a good time to visit RPS Community? I've been on a couple of nights this week but no sign of anyone from RPSH.
Hello, I was fortunate enough to get a trial from one of you guys, but was unable to use it since i only could log on once, before isp issues ruined the game for me. I am back now, so hoping to see you guys ingame!
Hello! I've decided to give Eve another try and I'm into the atmosphere of the RPS planetside 2 outfit so I thought this might be cool too.
I'll do the tutorial whatsits and sisters of eve thing as suggested to get myself reacquainted, but I was wondering if I should be choosing a particular race or whatever? does this matter? I dont want to be all like I'm a Gillet dude because I like the look of their ships and then it turns out I needed to be a calamari or whatever?
This might be a stupid question but I dont see mention of it anywhere, advice would be much appreciated!
race doesnt matter, so choose whichever ships/race look the coolest to you. and youll be able to cross-train to another race's ships anyway
Thanks for the reply, I went on the chat channel last night and it seems like RPSH is no longer a thing so I'll have to look elsewhere!
Due inactivty of RPSH has anyone any suggestion for a nice corp. focused on PvP?
I'm contemplating starting with EVE but I'm not sure whether I'll always have the time to play it regularly. As such €15/month seems a bit steep when there's the chance I won't be able to play during some weeks.
Anyhow, two questions regarding subscriptions:
- If you buy a 30-day subscription does it immediately start or not until you activate it?
- 30 days, does that mean 30 days from the day you activated it, or 30 days on which you login and play?
In my experience it's 30 days from the point at which you hand over the money.
However, because of the way the game mechanics work, it's not going to be wasted time - training is done on a time basis rather than repetition of an activity (rather than in WoW say where you grind skills up by repeatedly making belts or whatever). So you can log in when you're able, or hop in to queue up training for a few minutes, and then play more when you're able to.
I'm still a big newb as far as playing the game but I'm not spending a huge amount of time in-game at the moment, but I am developing a lot of skills and selling items on the Marketplace in the downtime - which means I can log in, queue stuff up, do a mission or two and then log off again.
So I take it RPS Holdings is no more?
I just re-activated a very old character, which despite being grey is a total (ok, maybe not total, but anyways) noob and could really use some assistance stepping over the threshold. Are there RPSers hanging out anywhere else? Any tips on other corps that might be looking for a part-timer with about 1M unassigned skill-points?
RPS Community' allways has some people online. It is not exactly buzzing with activity but certainly a good place to ask some questions and/or find a corporate home, i would assume.
You could also add me and/or evemail or convo me and i shall answer any questions i can. Be warned though, it is my strong opinion that everybody can and should live and prosper in lowsec, no matter the amount of skill points or expertise and my suggestions might be colored by that.
Also worth noting, PLEX are not as expenive as one might think or as they look for a new player. After a few months and if you are actively playing the game, it is quite easy to play for free.
But by 30 days it means 30 days and not 30 days you actually play. If you have 30 days of gae time but do not play for 20, then you will sadly only have 10 left.
But even if you are not playing a whole lot, as sketchseven mentioned, you train skills wether you play or not, as long as you are subscribed. So even if you do not play a lot for a week or two, as long as you remember to queue some new skills every other day (you can queue up skills with the last one of them STARTING no more than 24 hours in the future), you will return stronger than you left.
Thanks DeVadder, I will most certainly check out the community channel. Don't be surprised if I bother you ingame either.
TLDR: newbros should continue to hang out in "RPS Community" chat, the corp is open for applications but don't expect much.
Old timer RPSH member with an update:
I am an old timer who signed on with RPS Holdings inside its first week of operation. I resubbed about two months ago and while many of the RPSH bittervets advised me to move on I am a stubborn man. To this end I have re-enlisted RPSH into Faction Warfare for the Minmatar. I plan on doing streamed roams at minimum every Wednesday evening (2100 CET) (I did one last week: http://www.twitch.tv/ifbar/c/2265557 ).
If you are a bittervet: I am not good, I am mostly screwing around in PVP trying to get my sealegs as it were.
If you are a newbro: I am not good, but I can probably provide basic advice. Sign up for the RPS Community channel or chat when I'm streaming. If you are interested in signing up for the corp I can take applications: please include a link to your RPS forum profile. I may followup asking for an API key for additional account verifcation. I haven't decided how try-hard I am going to be in this regard.
As for what you should have done before you join, SweatyPitts said it quite well:
If you are interested in manufacturing, trading, or various forms of ratting then there will be space for it, just as long as people remember the raison d'etre of the corp is getting into dumb battles and dying a lot.What do we require from our new meatshields?:
- Working microphone - we use clients like Mumble or TeamSpeak to communicate with each other
- Finish the Sisters of EVE arc - The need to finish the Sisters of Eve arc is that it helps you understanding some very basic things like basic navigation and UI, if you have any questions about this contact us in "RPS Community"
- You need to understand that this is primarily a corp dedicated to getting new dudes into PVP as fast as possible, so if you have no interest in PVP, don't apply. In that case, feel free to hang out with us in the RPS Community channel; we have many friends and we like to keep it that way!
SweatyPitts post had some 'things we offer' points which I need to replace with the following:
- I barely know what I'm doing
- I am getting pretty plastered during the latter half of my Wednesday roams
If this (understandably) is of little interest to you I can point you in the directions that many RPSH alumni wandered off in.
