I have just been doing some thinking. So my new class has a 30page paper due in 4 weeks. What can I do in Eve with so little play time?
I can go FW, fly a stealth bomber solo gank, or do some quick exploding. What I can't do is maintain an industry. Manage my research lines, production lines, material shipments, and build.
Simply, destroying is easier than building. I can blow up a ship that took hours/days to build in minutes.
So what to do? Build of course. Some people take the easy route, me I like the difficult path it's more rewarding. I will probably have to import some reactions, ore, minerals, and components. Most I will construct. When the class is done, I will be better off for it.
