The Daily Grind: What one piece of advice would you give to new MMO players in 2018?


Over the weekend, CCP tweeted out a fun poll asking EVE Online players what advice they’d like to deliver to newbies: Insure your ship, trust no one, join a corp, that sort of thing. I love these little exercises because they’re really not as much about the newbies as they are about the person giving the advice, so we can learn a bit about ourselves and maybe improve too.

For example, the first thing that pops into my mind is spend your freaking e-gold. Many of my MMO regrets revolve around working really hard to amass a video game fortune through econ PvP only to watch it become devalued by powercreep, abandoned for the next game, or turned to dust unspent in a server sunset. What a waste. I should’ve spent it or given it away. You seriously can’t take it with you. There’s a lesson I can give not just to newbies but to myself – in games and out.
