Also do you really believe that eve players are so much more intelligent than other mmo players?
You have to admit that there are a hell of a lot of things to learn in eve and most of the more fun things take a lot of waiting etc and EVE is an Massive multiplayer / MMO getting back to the point it is not that eve players are more intelligent i can tell you there are a lot of dumb ass's in eve but we have the determination to climb that virtual rock face which is the learning curb of eve.
due to the steep learning curve, only the fraction of more patient, gutsy, [players who banded together], and figured out how to pvp or other complicated aspect [trade] i could consider to be topping as the more 'intelligent' of mmo players. the rest of us who care bear our way in missions wondering what the hell we're doing playing this crappy element of game play and wondering what the hell will happen if i ever do go into pvp suffer this massive pitfall in immersing ourselves in the games more complex mechanics.
i loathe this game because i am glued to it by coming back to set up skills and dreaming of the future. i don't have masses of time to go find a decent group to play with (not to mention how I'd have to haul all my s**t everywhere to start doing things with said people) and dying and losing millions in assets by getting my ass handed to me if i try pvp, really puts me off it. i started playing in 2006 and i quit once already. as the old meme graph of eve players goes... i died a long time ago.
i came back around the time of the planetary crapness, which wasn't worth even looking at for me.
the problems i have with this game are that they don't give a monkeys ass about guys who are a bit more afraid (who've lost a lot and had to work double/triple/quadruple hard to get their assets back) and generally making solo play more enjoyable.
who the hell can say they like doing missions? it's probably the only game in existence with such a major part which is a novelty lasting mere hours before becoming repetitive, tedious and awfully life-draining.
i somehow keep paying for this game in the hope that they will address above said issues, but it never seems to be looked at and remains the same and as boring as it ever was and ever will be.
how difficult would it have been to introduce players into what it's really like to do pvp with a bot? missions like that would really get you interested and prepared for the real deal. instead, you just stock fit a goddamn raven and check what resistances to take and missiles to blast; perhaps level up to a gravy navy and swap over to more death and less tank.. it still is just as boring but more vein throbbing.
god i loathe this game. Jesus. why oh why am i such a ******.. full of hope that the developers and think-tanks at ccp can actually improve their game play and the real issues of why people give the f*** up. and now we have incarna which gives a clunky addition, extra load time and a ****ing virtual couch. yeah, steps were made in the right direction...
ps: i realise that my post can easily be construed as some whiny ***** ass with no clue. but i've played this game a pretty long time, and invested a lot of money in it for it to still be as dull and boring for me for my rant to be worth its character count.
