RAMBooster will keep track of RAM usage and scrub your RAM free of flotsam left behind by closed windows and background programs. Computer system more faster like that name. Ultra Booster is a software utility designed to lend you a hand in this regard by making sure that your PC is always up to par, regardless of whether you intend to work, play games, or delve into.
TLDR: I tried almost everything in this bloody game, and PvP sounds like the only fun thing to left to do. I have a char with skilled missiles, frigates and cruisers. And I would like to get into pirating, details at the bottom.
For those interest in the long story, this is how my eve echoes love hate relationship begin:
I started playing the first day echoes was released. I literally couldn't wait. I tried playing EO several times, but was always overwhelmed, and felt incredibly behind everyone else. Yet, the notion of this gameplay and mechanics sounded really awesome. So I started playing!
Right from the beginning, I started with industry. I figured out that it would be needed early and I could make some money doing it. I also liked the idea of creating a supply chain, researching my own blueprints, making sure I'm doing profit. Basically running a company in a virtual world.
It went quite well, I created a corp for other indys to join. I advertised it on all the possible channels, different forums, in game chat. There is plenty of opportunities in game, where something is selling incredibly well and is overlooked, and I wanted to share these tips with others. But when somebody joined, they immediately left (they were in for the 500k bonus), or they stopped playing outright. I payed of the 200 mills and I'm basically solo now. But I don't mind ...
But then I noticed, that prices were plummeting. At first I didn't mind that much, because I was making profit. But then my mining spots were being overrun by bots. Imagine 9 ships warping at the same time to the same belt, spreading out and basically rowing everything down. I changed the system but the same thing started happening again.
It sounded like a good opportunity to try PvE content. I had quite a bit of Plex, so I setup an alt account, purchased all the skill boosters. And started ratting. But this felt like an incredible waste of time. It wasn't even fun. Most of the anomalies are low level, you get peanuts, and when you do find some scout or inquisitor anomaly. There is 5 other people doing it. And usually someone in a slasher that is there just to steal the loot. So I stopped doing that ....
Then I wanted to start doing story missions. And you know what? Fuck this shit.
Calling these missions story missions, is an insult to every story ever created. And the gambling mechanic (you roll your dice and maybe you are lucky to get the mission you want?) is the stupidest mechanic ever created for a PvE content. Really, fuck this. Afters week of trying to finish at least some story missions, I just gave up, if I wanted to play slot machines I would go into a casino. Then, I lost 140 hours worth of SP and I almost threw my phone out of the window.
If NetEase would have offices around I would buy the biggest pile of crap from the local farmers, and put it right in front of their doors, or maybe cover the whole parking lot.
Anyways, since I had a character decent enough for some PvE content, I wanted try PvPing. And so I thought well, maybe I could kill all the bots? And do my part? o7. And so I did, I have a Breacher Assault with 250 kills under its belt.
But there is no bloody point. First, there is no challenge, you warp in, they do nothing, you put them down, they warp to the station, reequip the whole set, and they are back in business. And they will be doing that 24/7. SO I stopped doing that as well...
But, it sparked my interest in PvPing. And this is the last thing I would like to try. But I don't want to join a huge corp, that requires discords and stuff. I have a small kid and I need to be quiet when she is sleeping. So I would like to try to do that solo.
The core of the post
- I have 5/5/0 in small missiles and 5/4 in medium. Frigs are 5/5/0 and cruisers 5/4/0. is there some cheap-ish setup that I can fly often and die often?
- Is it even viable to pirate solo? Most of the serious miners just warp off, even with story warp scrambles. So I was thinking of ganking pilots in anomalies, but I don't know if it is feasible in my breacher assault.
- Do you guys have any tips for a solo pirate? Or is it better to just play something else?
Something to think about
If some of you ever found Eve Online overwhelming, and then you stopped. But then you tried Eve Echoes, liked it at first, but it become underwhelming quite fast, give Eve online another try. It feels really great. It feels like Eve Echoes is a nice tutorial and preparation for Eve Online.
