Check out Survivor Guy: Returning to EVE Part 2 and then let us know what you think
Before throwing caution to the wind I decide to do the Eve Online equivalent of asking for fatherly advice; I head into the "Rookie" chat channel and inquire as to reliability of the vehicle I plan on buying; after one or two "LOLS" and a hearty "LMAO EPIC FAIL" I receive a viable message "It's OK but not brilliant" if there was ever more of a ringing endorsement, the aforementioned was all I needed. Heading back to the opened market panel I purchase the ship named "Merlin" - even the name fills me with pre-teen glee, I will be like the intergalactic version of the Arthurian wizard; I can see the Eve chicks piling up already as I cruise to the space-mall in this bad boy. I click into the menu which holds my space ships and there it is. I opt to assemble and make it active; it finally appears in front of my eyes, floating in mid-air: a 3 engine wonder that looks awesomely like Darth Vader's TIE Fighter. Oh my god I am in love.
