As the title says, I just picked up Incarna with one month of game time for $5. Did a little research beforehand and found that you could begin your account whenever you want. I am too busy to play right now, being around midterm time at school, but I bought this more with a nod to the holidays when I will have plenty of free time.
How would you guys recommend going forward in the game once I install? I had a 14 day trial account in 2006, but I have no idea where my skills were invested at the time. I remember Wedge bought me a Merlin, and enough money to buy a couple guns. Seeing as how these are corporate assets, I wouldn't mind reactivating that old account.
On the other hand, I have heard that things have changed a bit with regards to new player skilling rates. Also, that you can get a 21-day trial from a friend, who I believe also benefits if the trial player activates the account. If this is more worth-while, I think I'd prefer to go this route. If possible, I'd like to start paying my subscription with PLEX within 2 months. An extra week of free time might make that easier. What do you suggest?
Looking forward to flying with you all soon!
