ALDRAT, Metropolis – EVE Online can be highly intimidating for new pilots. Mastering even the basics to survive in New Eden is a daunting challenge. To make this easier for capsuleers, Seamus Donohue and EVE University have released a series of tutorial videos which guide new pilots through character creation through the introductory career mission tracks.
This 46-part series, encompassing over seven hours of content, can be found at http://tinyurl.com/SurviveEVE, or by searching for “How to Survive EVE Online” on YouTube. Each video runs from 6 to 14 minutes in length.
“I like explaining things,” said Seamus Donohue, “so when I saw ‘How to Survive Minecraft’ by ‘paulsoaresjr’ on YouTube, I decided it would be a good idea to create a similar series for EVE Online. In my case, I had watched the entire Minecraft series before actually buying Minecraft.”
“We are delighted with the excellent work that Seamus Donohue has done,” said Neville Smit, EVE University’s Director of Education. “The quality and usefulness of these tutorial videos are excellent. Anyone joining EVE who wants some practical advice about how to get through those critical first steps in New Eden will find these video lessons to be a life-saver – perhaps literally!”
Conservative estimate suggest that the collection of videos will both help the successful rate of attraction of new players, and will addtionally assist in the retention of players who have already signed on to the game, but are not quite sure where to start. It has always been the goal of EVE University to help these individuals, and it is fully expected in the coming months that the rising popularity of these videos will result in rising rates of admissions.
EVE University recently recognized Seamus Donohue’s long list of contributions as an Instructor and Mentor by awarding him the EVE University Professor Medal – one of only four Capsuleers to have earned this high honor.
