I tried it out for a bit. I am a member of the somethingawful.com forums so I of course hooked up with the guys from goonswarm.
BOY what a frikkin learning curve though, I managed to float along for about a month before I lost interest. I may give it another shot here in the future.
I did have some fun though, goonswarm is pretty badass and I was never really bored as we sat and watched gates, bullshitting in 0.0 space. 0.0 space rocks.
