I've been thinking about what I like about EVE and what makes it fun. A lot of the stuff I like about it doesn't make it fun necessarily. I love the back story. I love the design. (ships/gate/stations/UI) I love all the modules and their creative names. I love a lot of the things about the game but none of them actually serve to make the game more fun. What makes the game fun for me is the people I play with. On the days I log in and none of my regulars are on it usually sucks. On days when I log on and my friends are there doing stuff the tedium of mining/trading/farming NPCs is much more bareable. So make friends in the game and ignore the grind. In a few weeks/months they will start the storyline and there will actually be a purpose for all the preparations(I hope). Until then first one to 50 billion is TEH WINNAR!

I agree Lola. Community makes the game fun. I think that's why I quit freelancing and joined a Corp. Of course you don't need to join a Corp for ppl to chat with, but for me it was the way to go.

Well said, and there's always new ppl to meet... and most I've met in Eve have been very nice to chat with.

What happens when all your friends quit because their playstyle (which they RP'd very well) got completely nerfed?

30 members in 2 weeks, that's pretty impressive.

In all likelihood you'll have to cancel your subscription and come back after another MMO gets boring...much like players did with UO.

Some pirates RP'ed very well (Setec is a prime example), others were just griefers. But b/c of the griefers you're playstyle got nerfed. Hopefully the next patch will take away the guns at .1-.4 systems, but we'll wait and see.

Also, if most of my friends quit the game...I would also quit, much like I did with UO when they released of AOS.
