Ok. So we all love to complain about CCP and Eve every now and again. I am guilty of this myself. So I took it upon myself to actually do some research and see what other space MMORPGs there are out there, and how they are played, and what the reviews say. I haven't played any of em myself, so this is purely based on the online reviews I have found through google.

Well basically, from what I could tell, there are only 2 other main ones. Star Wars Galaxies, and Star Trek Online. I am a HUGE fan of both franchises. Have been for years. But I am sorry to say that from what I have read (I don't have time to try em) their MMORPGs sadly suck. STO is apparently mostly a single player affair and not very long-lived, and SWG just generally sucks and involves things such as endlessly typing "/dance" over and over to make your wookie tediously learn dancing skills etc etc. Very disappointing. Glad I didn't buy them.

And that's another thing - they charge for the game client! Not only do you have a monthly fee, but the client costs you about $30!

So all in all, it looks like Eve, while not perfect, is definitely the best space MMORPG out there! It made me look at Eve in a new light. I am so glad we have a skill queue. I love the ships. I think it's a bit too "windowy" if you know what I mean. I seriously think the Eve UI needs major work. I don't feel like I am in a pod, surrounded by goo. I feel like I am at a PC. You know what I mean?Some functions that you really need in a hurry are often buried in menus. But the gameplay and player interaction is great. And you can download the client for free. It pretty much rocks IMO.

Does anyone have anything (constructive) to add?

I didn't read what you wrote, but no. You seem stupid, and no. That old star wars game was the best before SOE killed it. CCP is just the only one out there really.

Edit: Oh yeah and ccp **** ***** **** **** ******ed

Yeah you asking people to be constructive is a real **** move. To an MMO the people who play it is about as important as the content and this is calling out the whole community instead of waiting for an off topic post. The fact that you felt the need to put that there shows the level of respect you have for your peers and it is sad.

Edit: Well my first point was killed in the first post. /Facepalm

Also I love everything that is EVE, the game play is a little dull but it is an endless universe of possibilities and options you have. Plus an original Sci Fi Story that is not just a clone of more popular series is refreshing. I love being Caldari, Hail the State.

Never before has a player name been so apt.

You didn't read what I wrote but you're replying? Ya. Well done. SWG may have BEEN good at one point, but not anymore, and surely that's the point? And CCP is not the only one out there - there's at least 2 others.

Go look up the word "constructive". Fail.

Sorry bro, I'm to busy spreading bad tiddings for ccp in other games and around the mmo community and alt tabbing. Because they banned me for saying I was a bot in local to read posts. And I'm bitter and filled with hate

Didn't mean to offend anyone, but you see I had a valid reason for putting that. Sorry - just been on these forums a while now.

How many times does the ENTIRE EVE community have to tell you that this is a result of your own stupidity?

And yes, EVE is the best Space MMO. And probably always will be.

I read a bunch of reviews from different sources. I've been playing games for a long time (over 20 years) so that's enough to give me a decent idea of a game. If you personally need more to form an opinion, well that's fine. I can fill in the blanks with experience.

Edit: don't forget, I am asking for input also. I am not just making a statement. If you have played anything else recently and it was good, then let's hear about it. Everyone needs to chill out! You're all so angry! Rolling Eyes

Funny thing, I was playing a bit of planetside, the most hacked mmo out there, earliet today. I was stealth/hacking certed. Not used to it someone asked I thought they were talking about me hacking the base. I said "I hacked it" they misunderstood. A gm sent me a tell to verify that I didn't mean hacking the game.

In EVE I said "I am botting right now" Which can't even be misunderstood without being an idiot that I'm joking. And I was just banned on the spot. lol...

You keep assuming this. That's why you keep failing.
