[EVE Online] I have decided to join up with a corporation thanks to a good friend in EVE. Now I find myself on the verge of an all-out war. The alliance the corp belongs to is at war, so we are at war. I have not yet accepted the offer from the corp, I am still relatively safe.
A whole new portion of the game is opening before my eyes. How can I get out to the somewhat safe space controlled by my new corp? I could fly out as close as possible in Empire and then accept the offer – flying the final distance in a fast ship. Another option is that I could get an escort.
I wouldn’t really worry too much, except for the 30 million ISK perception implant in my head. If I get podded (someone blows up my ship *and* my pod – killing me) I will lose that implant for good. It’s a risk I’ll have to take, as I hear the money is good out there.
I have several ships and almost 200 items in my hanger. Sell them or leave it all behind with a jumpclone at the station? Speaking of jumpclones, I had not even heard of these things until yesterday. It sounds basically like you can save a jumpclone at various stations and “jump” from one to the other (for a fee I suppose). The main problem is getting there the first time to save a jumpclone, not to mention training the skill in the first place.
Perhaps I’ll make the trip at an off-hour time, or just after the server comes online. Should be pretty safe then. Although I might as well just get the first death over. I’ll be able to enjoy the war a little more if I don’t have to worry about a huge financial hit.
So many questions, guess it’s time to learn the answers. What better way to learn than by experience? It’s time to fly.
