EVE Online Beta Question

Looks like I got a slot for beta phase 7. Anyone else here going to be involved or already playing?

( Brian "played it for 15 minutes" Rubin doesn't count. )

Yup. It''s awful.

I''ve been making attempts at getting in the beta but no love for Gamers With Jobs it seems.

I don''t see why, we''re a major force in the gaming scene!

I got in during the last phase. Beta 7 should finally make this game what it will look like during release feature wise.
I hope they take their time on this though. Lots of bugfixing needed.
Currently I am in the Gallente space with a new character. It''s just like Elite in the old days but prettier :).

Btw Certis, just try and sign up as the other users. They are assigning a lot of slots lately.

Oh I''ve been signed up for a good long while now. I haven''t checked for a while though, will there be an open beta?

I don''t know but it does not look like it, yet. I just saw that a lot of people entered for phase 7 now and they wrote they are still adding players.

I haven''t checked for a while though, will there be an open beta?

Well, they just launched phase 7 and the game is due on May 6th, my guess would be that there won''t be some kind of open beta. I haven''t checked the status myself for a while and already gave up on it, but yesterday I received an invitation via email.

Currently I am in the Gallente space with a new character.

Well, I have no clue where that is. :p I''ve played it for like 2 hours so far, and all I did was checking out the options in that one station and collecting some Veldspar. Now I''ve accepted a mission to get some Trillanium (or something like that), not that I would know where and how to get it (in case it cannot be mined). The manual, unfortunately, doesn''t happen to be very printer-friendly. What''s your nick? How would I message you directly? (I guess via in-game email or something.)

there is a map on the website. I am in the Essence region, Crux constellation, Duripant System. Nick is chrisg.

My guess is that Trillanium is a mineral so you should be able to mine it. Don''t ask me though what ore generates which mineral. I have yet to find a decent documentation for this :). i hope i can get enough money out of my next ore to start trading finally. Seems more lucrative.
I just wish there was a more decent documentation about the skills, mining and trading.

also you can search in the adressbook for a person and then start a conversation or leave messages etc.
