I must admit that this game intrigues me, and if its community is as helpful as you say, I plan on giving the trial a shot later today. After all, what is there to lose?

It depends on when you play. Population was fairly sparse for me in Eastern mornings/early afternoons, but even then there were a few people in the channels, and usually one GM.

"I spent the majority of my trial period in a little Arkhe starter bot (and later a Mark II upgrade)"

I'm sorry dude, but this alone makes your impressions a bit unreal. This is like saying you spent your 2 weeks in wow with only the gear from the starting 3 quest givers.

My first night in perpetuum: after doing the tutorial, went exploring. started chatting with a guy who, being convinced i wasn't a spy" invited me to his beta gang. next day i was in corp owned mechs roaming the out island for loot. got something like 20 kills that first full day.

now, all i'm saying is that, exactly like EVE, in Perpetuum the alphas are boring and repetitive, damn right depressing if you play it alone.

You drew some great conclusions and had very good highlights, but in my opinion, you reduced your experience by 75%. A second investigation, maybe in a month or so, played with other people, on or around the betas, would be very much appreciated.
