"I started playing EVE Mobile ISK in 2004," CCP Convict advised me via a telephone interview. "I got dragged into the game in the Homeworld community. Players from the Homeworld community were being recruited to EVE by EVE players in the Homeworld community, and I got carried along with this. I went through a trajectory which is unknown to other players in which you start playing EVE, and it was a different environment back then as well, but you play for a little time, you go AFK for a little while. Something brings back you then eventually you have that magic moment which makes you committed to the match.""It's absolutely fantastic. I mean, EVE Online does not have the greatest concurrent variety of players of any sport in the world, or whatever. But damn it do we have the hardcore community in the world."

With all the branching storylines and threads that can converge at any time, or even alter based on something mad a player does the team selects on, new gamers may feel intimidated to leap in. Indeed, together with the next chapter of the Invasion spinning up in New Eden, players may be discouraged because the Triglavian invasion may not be the easiest thing to do as a brand new player. Yet S?mi reminds gamers that it's, as Bergur said, a long game -- something to work up towards as you start your adventure in New Eden.

"If they join now they can begin preparing to be part of it since this is not just dropping everything in like, one week and after that it is over Buy EVE Echoes ISK with. This will be continued to go through the summer. Yet What is also vital for players, a fraction of players engage directly with the Invasion every day. But a lot more gamers than engage with it enjoy the Invasion, that they are part of the universe. Knowing that there's this evolving story which I am part of it, even though I am not necessarily engaging right -- we that gamers love that. And the story of New Eden will continue to evolve, which at some point they'll be more directly involved with it because it's more immediately involved with their playstyle."
