EVE's female population is about 5%, so based on accounts that would be approximately 10,000 ladies.


and .00001% of those are hot..

You're all a bunch of wusses. Who is to say that a female can't be hot, play eve, and love shopping and flowers at the same time?

I pod all my kills, btw.

Based on all past and future posts in this thread, very justifiable. Laughing


I'm not in hidingWink

I obviously play a female avatar in EVE,this however has been the exception not the rule for me in other MMO's
I tend to play whatever interests me from a character creation standpoint. My "mood" of course determines allot as well.Laughing

I don't make gender assumptions when I converse with other players,I find it rather irrelevant. It is the quality of the player that I care aboutSmile

maybe, but if they were hot why would they advertise that they were female in eve? they can probably get all the attention they want from a far less creepy source than internet spaceship sausagefest land

There's a female in my Corp who shall remain nameless, and she's the most ruthless, indiscriminate, and effective killer that VHI has. We have to like, beg her not to pod everyone we kill.

For one thing it stops people from refering to you as 'he' all the time. Even if you play a female character they still do it. If you are a guy and play a male character and your friends in game would refer to you as 'she' all the time i'm sure you'd tell them that you're a 'he' in fact without trying to advertise anything.

I gently correct any player that assumes that I am a gender other than what my portrait displays. It doesn't bother me when it happens.Smile

I am particularly fond of being called "dude"Laughing
I usually ask that the player interject "ette" as a suffix next time.

"Hey Bro" is another favorite.Laughing

I prefer not to know the "true" gender of player.If I know and it is different from what their portrait displays I still tend to address them according to what I see in their portrait anyway.ugh

I would like to commend the male population of EVE.
I have played for 6 months and have never been disrespected because of my gender or had to deal with anything vulgar or sexually innappropriate.Very Happy

Thanks "GUYS"Laughing

I know quite a few girls in EVE. Evanda Char, Elsebeth Rhiannon, Sonja Dragooran... we have quite a few women in EM. And one of them - Eva - is our leader.

oh wait, i think you were looking for a serious answer :P
check this out: http://www.nickyee.com/daedalus/archives/000432.php
The Daedalus Project has some surveys posted on mmorpgs and some of these show what factors make men and women want to play, what exactly interests them in the game. Since so few girls play EVE I would suppose it just doesn't give them what they are looking for in an mmorpg.

QFT. I am like this too.
I know a lot of female players. And they are some of the most fun people. Except one, she was FC for CLS and did an amazing amount of POS sitting.

What could we do to make it more appealing to the female audience? (nintendogs aside)


Make a Pink Ship damnit! Well just kidding, though my friend would love that lol. Honestly, I think just more socail interaction other than beating eachother over the head with weapons tends to be a turn on for us of the fairer sex so this next big revolution to the gaming experience should help.

I guess if I had to say the one major thing that draws some of us as it is, it is that you are rarely really hit on or given all those lovely loser one-liners thanks to being so many boy-girls LOL. Honestly, I find it very amusing seeing the boys playing girls and even more so if they are making an honest RP attempt to act like one (though Gods not in a stereotypical "girly" fashion I hope, unless it really BURNS someone you just killed, then it is funny.).

Spaceship MMO + girls really does not compute. The game would need more socialization that feels personal instead of just ships communicating to eachother. Some deeper character customization might help too.

According to other MMOs I could say that roleplaying servers/posisbility to roleplay well attracts the female population to some extent too. Or at least it seems like there'd be more people on those servers who at least claim to be female. Razz

I know several different kinds of female Eve players.
One is a total yarr YARRRR!! pirate who will blow you up without question, I must say she scares me.

Then theres this other one who has a corp of alt-miners, loves nothing better than chewing on veldspar all day and building ships. Wouldn't hurt a fly, although she does ask others to that for her.

And then theres one kind of imbetween those two enjoys to pvp, enjoys a bit of ratting, and generally acts like your average pvp player. Although she does a mean Celestis with which you do NOT want to ****.


So to sum up, I don't think you can lump women into a group and say what they are interested in. Mostly it seems they like to blow stuff up or chew on a roid like the rest of Eve.

i'm looking forward to the walking in stations part as it will give me something other to do than run missions. The industry side of eve does not interest me much and each time ive done some pew pew and killed somebody ive given them a donation to buy a new ship and fittings as i feel bad about itEmbarassed

Thats the great thing about Eve, you just play as you want to play. Im fully into pew pew but, hell, im really looking forward to ambulation. Vareity is the spice of life and i'd love to go on an op then mess around in stations for a few hours drinking in a bar with my friends (and enemies).

EVE feels really antisocial when you start playing. There's little or no reason to group up to do any of the low level PVE stuff. I think fixing that in combination with the ambulation stuff and faction warfare (i.e. moar ingame fiction and social stuff) would probably take care of a lot of the more stereotypical reasons why EVE is unappealing to women.

Mind you, most of the girls I know who game I met playing Planetside which was a glorified FPS. Not sure how social and friendly that game was really. Despite claims otherwise I'm sure most of them just liked shooting people in the facebones.

Interestingly I've had the same responses from the couple of people I've tried to get interested in EVE regardless of gender - that it's repetitive, that there is too much travelling and that the amount of time it takes to be able to do anything worthwhile is far too long.

It's like the perv! thread.

People should realy think about it before they post the names and personal details (gender) of others.
