Would you recommend it to a friend?

A family member?

Or your worst enemy?

For me, no, not any more. At one point I'd have recommended it with qualifiers about the pacing of gameplay, the griefing, and the general EVE ethos. Right around the Tyrranis expansion, CCP stopped caring about the customer (18months). The customer called for a change in CCP's attitude, but it's abundantly clear that CCP is run by accountants, not gamers. (And I mean the CEO, and all the other marketing slugs you see center stage at fanfest.) Now I could only recommend EVE to watch the very slow motion train wreck.

Most certainly I would recommend Eve to my friends – particularly as now CCP are clearly making an effort to provide the game with more accessible facade. I very much like the first step of Incarna and the new tutorials are a huge improvement.

Absolutely yes 6 months ago, definitely not now as it's unplayable, and I'ld be a hypocrit to suggest it when I'm quitting myself.
Maybe in the future, if CCP doesn't manage to **** it up, which it seems pretty hard-set to actually.

Not anymore.

EVE is a long term MMO and previously I wouldn't be worried about what direction the game would take so even with changes I didn't know about I'd trust them to be in EVE's/our favour. And any criticisms those new players would have (buggy UI, overview, stuff being "weird") I could counter with "but it's awesome and I'm sure they're working on it".

Now I don't know what to think or to expect:, Sell out? going F2P with expensive MT? staying P2P with MT? No commitment to actually work on spaceships but rather focus on "WoD Alpha in space"? Weird decisions making me think they're doing a money grab (which is bad enough in itself but is most of the times a last effort before ditching).

I just can't recommend it, I wish I could. I'm not sure CCP's version of "awesome" is like mine.

Yes I would...

Been playing for 8 months now and loving every minute of it. Don't care about the NEX store so it does not bug me at all.

Atm no, really. EVE is no shortterm game, if you want to do anything meaningfull it takes months, years.

The current state of affairs does not inspire enough trust so that i would recommend anyone to invest years of their time into the game.

For short flicks there are other games that do that way way better. Now, once EVE totally goes that way, maybe you can recommend it for that. But its not even NEAR to those games.

Sure. Been playing for soon 6 years and been to 2 fanfests, and see no problem recommending this game to anyone who love sci-fi games! Nothing have changed really to the game that would warrant not to!

I don't have to agree with all of CCP's plans for EVE but this game is still awesome and I'd recommend it to anyone.

When they fix all the bugs, glitches, balance issues and their work ethic then I might think about it.

I would recommend that they give the trial a go. Let them make their own opinion.

I fully agree on this and if they want to keep playing, I would help them out with isk and share the knowledge I have gotten over the years

I have recommended Eve to quite a few people, but its always the monthly sub that puts them off, saying they can get 2 months on their old MMO for that price.

I would reccomend it and I would tell them to ignore the forums.

Or your worst enemy? Don't talk to my worst enemy. Have been known to dance on the grave.

In the past, it was the forums that got me interested in EVE Online. Guess those days are over. Maybe CCP will create a new forum and purge the old one. Now that's a customer management system(CMS)!

To most people, no.

To certain people who can handle a game where you need to educate and entertain yourself, constantly, then maybe.

LMAO!
Reverse psychology, it always works. Except when CCP tries to sell Monocles. Neutral

ATM I wouldn´t even make myself know as someone partaking of a CCP product.

Monoclegate has made this game and it´s player an even bigger laughing stock than the "spreadsheets in space" accusations.
Maybe sometime next year, when Dust-beta has raised some curiosities and there are actually 4 fricken cupboards around.

I recommend EVE all the time. Just dragged some new players into it from one of the other forums I frequent. It's an awesome game.
