Eve Online is a game that I’ve been playing for years, but only recently started making money from. It’s a massively multiplayer online game set in a massive universe where players can engage in combat, trade, or explore the game’s expansive solar system. In order to play the game, you need to own a copy of Eve Online: The Game, which is pretty damned expensive. Still, the game provides a great deal of content for those who invest and spend the time to upgrade their ship, clone, and access the game’s many features.
Build, Explore, and Fight Your Way to Wealth
One of the best things about Eve Online is how the game allows you to literally build your own wealth. Players can begin as a rookie shipwright, mining har-dries and selling them for profit. As you make money, you can buy equipment to increase your mining capacity, build bigger and better ships, and invest in other players to form alliances or engage in commerce with them. The possibilities are truly endless.
Additionally, as a player you can explore the solar system and discover new worlds and systems to visit and interact with. In order to do this, you need to own a probe, which provides you with both speed and detection capabilities. As you explore, you’ll find anomalies, which are unexplored worlds, that can contain valuable resources or provide you with a place to battle other players for territory. You can use these resources to further your exploration or to fund your ever-growing fleet of ships and clones.
The Least You Need to Know
If you want to make money playing Eve Online, the first thing you should do is to create a strategy. What this means is that you want to sit down and think about how you intend to play the game. Are you going to be a violent pirate that robs other players and their resources? Are you going to be a peaceful explorer that seeks out new worlds and technologies to master? Are you going to battle other players for control of space or are you going to work together with them to become the biggest, baddest space-faring civilization the game has ever seen?
Eve Online is a very flexible game, which means that no two players are going to have the same experience as long as they have different strategies and plan on playing the game differently. Still, there are some basics you need to know in order to have a good time playing the game. This includes using a sniper rifle instead of a pistol for self-defense, which has infinite ammo and can be used to great effect in battle, and keeping your eye on your wallet, as there are a lot of scam artists that try to prey on the player’s financial naivete. Still, it’s a fantastic game and well worth the money if you can get a hold of a working copy.
