Inspired by todays best post in Eve Online General Forum by DubanFP.

Ok, taking a break from the trip down memory lane, I think I’ll talk about one of my pet peewees. I seriously hate it when people do not fit to match the boni of the ship…

If you want to fit jammers, fly a griffin, blackbird, scorpion, falcon or kitsune. DON’T FLY A FREAKING MERLIN!!!

If you want to use lasers, fly Amarr ships with bonus to them!

And if you want to do PVP… don’t fly a freaking mining ship.

Oh, and don’t expect a girl to fit modules to match in color just because she is a girl. About 99.99% of us females actually think. Those who want to play dress-up and color co-ordinate are more likely to go with World of Warcraft than with Eve.

Although… I do take a lot of time making a new character, even for the lowliest alt, because I want the face, the background and the light to be just right…

Playing an MMO

Once I used to think playing an online game was not going to be me. Well, I guess I was a little worried, truthfully, that I may like it too much 😛

And I was right to be worried. I love to play Eve Online. I love my friends, chatting, hanging out on ventrilo, just sharing the joy of this game of internet spaceships. Hey, I even love a drunken Oveur on Eve TV during the tournament.

One of the biggest wonders of Eve is how close the community really is. And that is why a post like this is a real puzzle to me. In short, it is a guy who is asking on Eve Onlines General Discussion forum how to get friends in Eve without being in a corp. He does not want to share missions, does not want to be in a corp, does not want to PVP with others – but he wants them to fullfill his social needs.


I’ll just leave you with your mouth open like that…

… then I think I can do it too.

Who am I? I am one of the many players of the online game Eve Online. Flying internet spaceships, shooting at others who fly internet spaceships and … having lots of fun.

I am also 40+ years old, Danish and female.


Ecatherina W, CEO of DGAF

Actually, I have several characters, but my main face to the world is Ecatherina W, a Gallente dronespecialist and carrier pilot wannabe. And of course, the CEO of the corp Dromedary Goat Albatross and Fish. Silliest corp name in Eve, admittedly. But I love it – and the ticker DGAF. Corp motto: “We DGAF!”

I started playing Eve Online in April 2006. My RL friend Tolin Dorden – male, yes – was ranting about it and so I had to check it out. So I went online, had fun creating a character and doing my first couple of missions – and made the entire Danish channel roll around on the floor when I asked, nice and polite as can be “Ehm…. guys, so how do I save?”

Well, come on!?! I was used to single player PC games. Although I am a PC nerd, it had not really registered in my mind that this was a game which actually saved every second on the server… I was still a noob.

I still am, sometimes. But now I teach noobs… like my friend Wensley.
