If any of you ever wanted to try this for FREE, here is your chance for 14 days.

I downloaded, installed and was in-game pretty fast. Playing it at work during the day cause it runs so well in Windows Mode.

Its not to shabby, kinda like the multiplayer of Freelancer but with a LOT more depth.

I haven't gotten anywhere near the high end PvP, Battleships and shit, but the low end PvP isn't to bad, pretty fun, nice little distraction.

Very fun game, and teaming up with even one guy will rake you in 3 times more mineral/ore/money at least.

Gang yes.

But I mean.. you get a ship with 4 miner II lazers, and your buddy gets a hauler ship. Takes about 30 minutes to make 100,000 isk

No, depends one which class you take. Minner, Merc, Crafter, ect ect...

I started as a Minner because its pretty fast cash, which will lead to me buying a Battlship to kill people with. :P

I betaed that game, it was a very pretty screen saver for when I did other things around my place, like reading, cleaning, or watching tv.

The game gets pretty boring after a while. All you do is mine this, fly here, kill that...blah blah frickin blah. Played for 2 months out of pure boredom just to wind up more bored than I was when I first started.

whats really rediculas is how some of this stuff takes like 20 hours to upgrade one level and you can only upgrade one thing at a time. I have also had the great experiance of having to make 18 jumps to pick up a mineing lvl 2 laser, which took me the better part of an hour. This is def not a game that i would even consider buying ut its free so i cant complain too much
