I tried playing ED back around the time Epic offered it as one of their free games. I had so much trouble getting up and running with their version I purchased the Steam version and things went much better. I had previously played EVE Online for a few years but I spent most of the time hiding in the closest base. The few times I dared to venture out I ended up with no ship and all of my stuff gone.
I don't want to play like that. Some folks live for the fight, I don't. When I heard about Mobius I was overjoyed. I'm looking forward to playing PVE instead of PVP. As I said I tried playing ED for a few months, even got the Logitech joystick for it. I had a few people, don't know if they were PVP or NPC's, kind of threaten me and follow me around for a bit, then I got so hopelessly lost I don't know where I ended up, couldn't get to anywhere I saw on the maps so I stopped playing out of frustration.
I'm looking forward to getting back into ED and with Mobius.
