Being the cheapscate that I am, Id like to check out Eve for free before I start paying.

They have trial accounts, but (apparently) only if a buddy already in the game does the referral.

So, Im looking for a buddy referral :P

Given I dont even know how Eve handles a rather slower than normal ping - at least im down to 250ms on connections to the US vs the 650 ms I had before to the JG servers... But still thats pretty big - id appreciate being able to get a sense for how it will pan out before fronting my CCard...

Im not sure how it would work.

On the one hand, while im ... poking around the EvE site it implies stronly that EvE players can referr new players who then get free time.

On the other hand, you cant even create an account without paying $39...

So I havnt created the account yet because account creation stalled at the "type your credit card number in here" stage.

They offer a 3 day "Buddy Trial", only registered users can give that away, and I just happen to be one. 8}

I am assuming its email based, in which case, make sure to use
chris.becke@derivco.com NOT the microgaming.com address if you happen to find that one first. That address gets eaten by a blackhole nowadays :/

wtf!?!?! i get an invalid checksum right after the patch download and install!!! stupid freaking game, it's as bad to get working as logging in on EU's jumpgate server.

*sigh* anyways, i checked out 'Support' and they said i need PatchIt.exe (injoke)...so i go [url=http://support.eve-online.com/cgi-bin/eve_online.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_sid=l3yThF6h&p_lva=&p_faqid=413&p_created=1052252941&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9ncmlkc29ydD0mcF9yb3dfY250PTEmcF9zZWFyY2hfdGV4dD1pbnZhbGlkIGNoZWNrLXN1bSZwX2NhdF9sdmwxPX5hbnl_JnBfY2F0X2x2bDI9fmFueX4mcF9wYWdlPTE*&p_li=]here[/url] and found whatever version was in my ccp/eve/cache folder and replaced my buggy DL and executed the second DL which gave me the same FUCKING error! I even tried applying in SafeMode...grrrrrrr....So i give the hell up and download the current full version
