Dunno how I found out about EvE think my mate told me about it. The MMOs I played before were petty dire (gildwars and WoW) EVE is the only MMO I actually enjoy.

EVE was my first real space game. And my first MMORPG. And my first major forum I hung around on.

And just look at me now! \o\ |o| /o/

I first heard of EVE in 7th grade elementary (i was 13 at the time)

My homekeeping(basically cooking) teacher mentioned it, she was a 40 yo woman.

Then i tried it out, didn't play any space games before eve

hi, I'm supercanard, and I've been playing eve for about 2 years (with a 1 year brake) , I'm highly addicted, and I haven't opened eve in about 9 hours - thank you.

Seriously though, I was browsing for games in my local store about 2 years ago, after playing freelancer - and I saw the eve box (which I STILL own muuaaahahahaaaa) - I just though: "mmmm a game with a red box - this gotta be hot - so I bought it.. installed it - went to sleep while it patched - and 2 hours later woke up - and started shooting at concord - OMFG Hax0r - that concord guy just killed me in like 2 seconds! and he like had so many friends in his faction - how do I join them? (walk of shame) - awww the good memories...

Oh wait.. you just asked.. how we found it - erm yeah.. on a shelve in a gaming store. :D

I was a FPS guy before EvE.

I took my PC into a new computer shop that opened a few doors down the road from me.

When I picked up my PC the guy who's shop it is says

"Ive installed a game called EVE on your system, used it as a bench mark, try it out if you want, Ive left you a trail CD key"

Well 3 years later he's my CEO, best drinking buddy and still the evil bastard that got me in to this time theft of a game :)

I played alot of DAOC and our gm lived about 2 blocks from my friend and me so occasionaly we'd take our pc's over and have a lan party with him and his 2 kids.
One day he was showing me something on his pc and I was looking at his game shelf and saw a boxs set of EvE on there and was like 'wow, this looks cool'. Been off n on over the last 2 years but I've got a character I really like now.

EV nova > EVE

the way i found about it was on the elderscrolls forums, i was reluctant to try it at the time as i was more into fantasy, but about 4 months after i found out about it i heard there was a 14 day trial so i just jumped in.....and never climbed out.

MMORPG wise...

Tradewars 2002 - 7 years
Everquest 1 - 2+ years (yes, isn't space, but still)
SWG - Original Beta, almost 2 years

Heard about EVE via a Tradewars2002 forum, old friend and very respected known player (both in EVE and TW2002) was telling us about this place... turns out most old Tradewars 2002 people are here.

I was VERY MUCH into SWG at the time I heard of EVE. I logged on EVE, tried it, knew after about 4 days that all of us playing SWG were getting screwed, didnt log on SWG again until about 6 weeks later and gave away all my stuff to friends and never logged in again. Very Happy

My Mate > OMG I'm playing Eve-Online beta... omg it rocks... omg it gets released soon.
Me > Hmm... I'll have to try it... they got a site?

...and the rest is history.

Eve is the first, and only MMOG I've played... don't need any other tbh.

Everything I want in a game, right here. Cool

The only space game I really played before this was Colony Wars. I loved those games.

I found out about EVE in another forum. I was talking about Battlestar Galactica and posted a picture of a Cylon raider. Some dude said it looked like an Amarr frigate and posted the Executioner. I downloaded the game like a week later.

I grew up surrounded by my father's sci-fi collection, so that has always been a penchant of mine. In terms of game progression:

M.U.L.E. -> Elite -> Subtrade: Return to Irata -> Elite II -> Elite: Frontiers -> Privateer I & II -> X Series -> Freelancer -> EVE

Of course that sequence is peppered with other oldies but goldies such as Starglider, Xenon 2, the Wing Commander series, Beneath a Steel Sky, B.A.T. and loads of other sci-fi related adventure/shooter/rpg stuff, but you wanted a sequence of space trader games. Smile

EVE has the same feel as Elite in terms of vastness, but much more freedom and of course much more cunning opponents. The trading and production element attracted me from moment I laid eyes on it, although I got sucked into mission running and some corporation level warfare when I started. Nowadays though you are more likely to find me mining ice and setting up production jobs.
