I can confirm that if you're a girl playing eve and get smacked about it (happens often) the most hilarious thing to do is pretend you're a gay guy and it's turning you on

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.


Now why cant i meet a woman just like this? Embarassed

Maybe we should start an Eve Speed dating, everyone turns up in pods to be safe
(then see how long it takes for someone to gatecrash and start podding!!)YARRRR!!

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


And how many of these were actually born female?

I'd rather not think about thatugh

Anyway I think most of us agree that while girls lack that floppy thing they're just the same as the rest of EvE.

You mean that 5% of the players use their girlfriend / mother credit card ?

There are girls who play eve. I can confirm at least 4.

I will direct you to this, however.

Anyone have any suggestions on what would bring in more girls?


The sole purpose of the ambulation project is exactly that. It's been publicly stated.

5% female, 5% male and 90% drunken pervs which happen to be male but nobody actually cares.

Some neat ideas. Hoping for more though, especially from females.



As an aside, to the people who are "defending" female eve players, there is no need.

This is not an attack on the female character what so ever. There are clear distinctions between male and female tastes (as you can see, only 5 % of eve is female). The point of this thread is to address this issu and to add content that would be more appealing to females in general.

Alot of people have mentioned that girls are no different than guys and then list friends they've met on eve. Yet wouldn't that be skewed? The girls who do come on to play eve are attracted to what eve is offereing now. So the ones that are here would have more similiar mindset to the males who already play.

The goal of this thread is, however, to bring up content that would be appealing to female gamers outside of eve, while still maintaining the core that is eve.

Yeah-- would you like to be the only girl in a room of 19 guys, 12 of which have no discernible social skills? No. Probably not.

Just a thought. The females in-game are not going to outright tell you who they are.

How many females play ever?

Are there any known statistics?


Also, please comment on how we could attract more Female players. (ie new content, different mechanics, advertising)


Why do you care? Eve isn't a dating service...

There is more to women than just dating them. It is possible to be friends with someone from the opposite sex and to engage in activitise with them that are platonic.

There are many reasons why introducing materials that would attract females to eve would be beneficial:

1) opens up new market possibilities
2) diversifies the gaming experience (through content)
3) would help expand the eve population
4) would diversify the population, giving a richer game experience

etc etc etc

What happens when eve voice, ambulation and more girls meet EVE?

"Lock, got point, shields, armor..."

In her sweetest voice "Hey there honey, check these out..."

I flew (flown?) with two female pilots that I knew were women and would not hesitate to fly with them again. They were as ruthless & calculating as any other pilot I have met.

On the note of what can be used to attract more into the game: I don't believe game content is a major contributor here as much as the ratio of women-to-men that actually get into gaming in general. I wish it wasn't so though, because in my experience women bring a totally different aspect to any game due to their unique approach to most things. Example: Males see a fly and pick up the biggest object he can gets his hands on and smashes it. Females breakout fly strips and poisons so the creature will die slowly and/or horribly.
