    Hi,

    I have been playing MMOGs for quite a while. The past 3 years I have been mainly on Eve-Online although with occasional forays into WoW, DAoC, Guild Wars, and so on. Prior to that I played Earth & Beyond for a year and before that I played the Siege Perilous shard of Ultima-Online for 3 years. If you go back before then you would have found me huddled over a VT series terminal playing various text-based MUDs and MOOs. I also enjoy FPS but not as much as MMOG - although perhaps because I have never managed to get in with the right group of people in those games.

    I would initially be interested to hear from whoever looks after your people within Eve-Online. I am primarily keen to learn how big a UK/EU player base you have, what kind of activities you get up to, and so on. I love the game but even after playing for so long I still haven't managed to find a group that I fit properly with - I guess mainly because I fit the criteria of a TOG and I'm not too impressed with the infantile attitude of many MMOG players. I just heard about TOG from a friend so I thought I would find out a bit more about you, hence the post.

    25 is well over a decade ago for me and I have read the blurb and have no problem with that. I am married, with a long-suffering wife who has become accustomed to being a MMOG widow and a 6-year-old son who is already getting a taste for fantasy MMOGs. I live in the North-West of England and I am a Project Manager by profession, working mainly in the business side of IT so game playing is a very important part of my relaxation routine.

    Cheers,

    Larne

    Welcome to TOG Larne. Looks like you have done all the right things. I'm sure somebody will get back to you about Eve-Online & MMOG.
    Don't worry, my wife says she is a COD2 widow :) .

    :p just to clarify, blurb (above) = AUP & FAQ. All read and agreed to :)

    (And yes, I actually read it - sad or what??)
