Just a question if i purchase eve online from amazon.com will ccp game allow me to create an account in my country of New Zealand? Since EB Games nz is out of stock and can't order it in and Mighty Ape Nz has it listed as unavailable so i'll have to purchase it from amazon.com and it's a pc game so there's no region locking.
Any answers would be appreciated.

I would be surprised if they redzoned any country at this stage
Google New Zealand EvE players or guilds you might find more that way

Okay but are the servers all in a foreign language or are there servers in both English and foreign languages?

You can buy Eve Online directly via their website.

You can also try it for free for 14 days. https://www.eveonline.com/start/

There's only one server in EVE, and you can buy it from their website.

Thank you all for answering my question.Much appreciated!
Instead of doing the digital download i'll preorder EVE The Second Decade Collectors Edition from Amazon.com and pay the $250NZD price (it's $150USD) because of the exchange rate i've worked it out and install from disc.btw The Second Decade Collectors Edition is due for release on the 31st of October.

I'd really recommend to try it out before.

EVE is a Dark and Harsh Place.
not sure how is is these days but it wasn't the most newcomer friendly game when i started,
also it is dying since 2003.

:P

insider tipp: "Amarr" have Laz0rz but some evil person spread the Rumor that their ships where designed last, and that the designers had smoked something from another galaxy far far away during the creation to stay at work the whole time, I like the design :P and the Laz0rz
also may i point your attention to the awesome "Hurricane" some call it a stolen design, I don't know what could have been the Original.

EVE is very newbie friendly. The very first time, you undock you already will see a dozen yellow can-boxes in space barely 10km away, which are named "free stuff" or something like that. And the moment you take anything out of those boxes, you get a new ship and learn how to fly a pod

That aside, EVE is in english. Each channel got a "main" language which is english for any channel other than for the language channels. (yes, you can get banned for speaking english in GERMAN or HILFE but most likely you will just get rudely insulted until you either explode, give up or find the right channel for your useage).

Oh and one more thing: It is wrong to be gallente... They are the Jar Jars of EVE.

Don't know what you mean by that.
the German is such a nice channel, only friendly people, they are always generous with excellent tips and Helpful suggestions no matter the language. (edit: at least it was 4 years ago)

also as a new player you might want to invest a few $ to buy PLEX then travel to Jita and look through the Contracts there's often great Stuff for really good Prices you can then Transport somewhere else in your Industrial to get more ISK out of it and buy the PLEX back ones you have enough ISK to keep it running.
