I recently reactivated my account. I was offline 2,5 years. I remember when eve forums was so ..mature. Now its exacly the same like wow forums, almost everyone are trolls and whiners ...and if you ask some question all answers you got is "you noob learn how to play" "go back to wow" or some sick joke. When this community changes happened ?

PS. Not a native english speaker.


I've been here since Eve Beta, and these forums have never been a mature or friendly place!

They should actually have a health warning on them...

The forums have gone through periods of good and bad, right now, they are particularly bad. If someone posted "my mom died and I am depressed", the response would be "good, the *****!"

it is a real disappointment, I returned last time to eve in large part due to the forums being good and helpful and even compassionate.

Good luck mate!

IMO it started about 12-18 months ago. A lot of really good posters burned out and quit posting between Dominion and Tyrannis. I still see some of them in game, but I think most just don't play anymore.

Dominion killed a good portion of ccps legacy population. It was that game breaking, it still is for the most part. In that time, CCP seems to be advertising on ever website known to man, and they have replaced the old hardened vets with the guys who got bored after burning crusade.

They are the same because its the same players from wow, migrating to eve, one of the most advertised MMOs out there.

Don't worry though, ever once and a while even a flower will spring up in a pile of ****.

It's funny how almost everyone I come across in-game is really cool and fun to do stuff with, unlike the obnoxious forum dwellers. I guess the whiners are (or were Laughing) holed up in some remote 0.0 system, grinding Sanctums.

Whining about whiners and trolling the forums with a wow comparison. Nothing new: 1/10 for the effort.

The forums do not comprise the entirety of the EVE community, hell they're not even a majority.

There are other forums, blogs, IRC channels, and, ofc, in-game. There are many face to the EVE communty (approx 360k of them) of which those dwelling in the forums is but a tiny part.

If you don't like what the forums have become (I haven't noticed any drastic change tbh) then go find another facet of the community to engage with.

The #tweetfleet is always welcoming new members.

Wow, that a lot of nice answers actually, most of you made me belevie in eve one more time. Its good to see not everyone are like that.. Very Happy

Maybe some of you dear players dont see this changes to worst, but for someone like me who had 2,5 year break ...well the first impression is exacly like my first post. Neutral

And about tweetfleet ...well im against big social networks, i do not own facebook, twitter or anything like that. I liked battleclinic a lot, not sure how they are right now. Smile

So there's more WoW like threads now than in the past.

That will be most likely the case as a lot of players are tired of WoW and a lot of gamers do have a habit of moving between MMOs. Will be the same for most MMOs.

Would not mind betting that the average age of Eve players has dropped a bit too.

As for maturity, this is a 12+ game and from what I saw from AoC which is an 18+ game this is more mature still. Listening to the chat in AoC was like listening to WoW's trade channel.

As the number of Eve subscribers gets higher, so does the "Forum Whine Index".

And as for the Wow comparison, maybe we snag some of the Wow-playerbase? Razz
Which is a good thing.

Seriously though (as a former Blizzard Fan) other games forums is not much "worse".

This is exacly what im talking about. Neutral
No more maturity.


I lol'ed.
Nah, when maturity and seriousness is required (such as action bidding on characters) it works. Everything else not being about isk is kind of .... not taken serious.

Worse or not worse, what I wonder is why SHC has always been better than the official forums? Both forums should have roughly the same clientèle? Is it a matter of moderation? In that case the EVE-O forums could be cleaned up with some extra work put into moderation.


I have seen all kinds of **** discussed on the SHC that is not allowed here, so you are absolutely wrong.

IME, you might get a couple of asshat responses, but normally a few helpful people will reply with something, well, helpful.

Maybe things was not as you remember them, 2.5 years is a long time, people do often remember the good things and forget the bad.

I agree that things on the forums have kind of gone downhill since I first joined in 2008. It's unfortunate. I can only say: be the change you want to see. Let's raise the level of discourse peeps!
