sorry to inflict this on you, but someone told me to look at a site called mmorpg.com... a selection of intelligent reviews of eve below Laughingenjoy

Has a lot of depth if you don't get bored to tears first. In this game you can grab a mission then set your autopilot to warp to your destination. Go make a sandwich or take a nap then return to finish mission and take another. At this point you can go grocery shopping and/or do your laundry. At that point you can come back to finish your mission. *Yawn*

Really didn't get the point of this game. Flying around in your spaceship gets boring REALLY fast. Very boring, content low MMO. Only graphics are nice. But you start to look past that after 2 hours. I really have no idea how the hell this game has such high ratings other than (I suspect) the DEV's doing their own rating on this site.

I believe thats most peoples first few weeks of eve. I couldnt handle the mining or the repetitive missions so i started flying around in 0.0 in my first week. i think i got blown up by norad.. lol

anyways, point is, of course they are all going to say its boring. You dont get relaly going into this game until about a month or so. What these guys are saying doesnt really mean much, since they seem to hve only played it for 2-3 weeks at max.. lol.

I like this line..

Often I read that in the beginning it can be dull, boring and difficult.

Weird, I was hooked from the first minute.

EVE is not the mindnumbingly boring XP grind of killing rabbits for days on end and the tutorial when I did it long ago only taught the basics.

What I loved about EVE was that the rest was up to me to discover. No one telling what to do and how to approach the game. Open ended gameplay, that's what I like.

This does not appeal to everyone, like the statements describe above. But you wouldn't catch me playing games like EQ where you have to kill fluffy bunnies for hours on end to progress up the XP ladder, or to wait in line to have a shot at Ueber NPC's Lair to get my hands on a sword of godly powers +1.

Like someone above mentioned: EVE is better off without people like that who need to be spoonfed all and have an attentionspan of a fish.

(or was that a memory of a fish...?)

I really hope thats the edited down version... Confused Someone must have put some good ones in... mmorpg.com comments are generally 90% trolling, every game I've been playing and read about has been something like that.

The only thing I can think in some of those comments - and understand them - it those "conditioned" to the more traditional MMOG (swords/bunnies all that jazz).

eve doesn't exactly fit to that perception. I came from AO (anarachy online - with a little eq for good measure) - I was expecting groups alot more. You know that whole tank, crowd control, main damage dealer type thing. You only really get this with PvP - (try telling me that warp scramblers and webifiers aren't snares and roots).

You don't get this in the early game (and I personally wish you did) what you get is a very crappy (imo) tutorial which bores you silly by hauling cargo - reports 1 system - then realise you don't know your way back - and then 2 systems and back.

I would like to see eve reward players alittle more who do group. (you solo boys can do what you like) In your newbie ship the only difference if you work as a team or solo - is you get less of a bounty when rat hunting. The game encourages solo play rather than group play. Your hardcore MMOG player expects to group from the start - eve is the only MMOG where its almost counter productive.

lol Laughing


Nothing as critics, eh?


Anyway. what shines through most of these descriptions, is that people have a lag of either playtime, or even a remote attempt at getting into the depth of the game.


On the other hand, I must admit some of these statements have something true to it. One is the graphics discussion. I'm not an expert, but making a spacesim look very good, is easier than walking. talking and breathing humans(characters) and if you don't know how to get into the game, through social interaction, it can get quite tedious as with everything else you do in life basically :P.


EVE is also a game that has no steadfast purpose, and as such require you to find your own goals or meaning with playing. Why I think it has an appeal to an older or more mature player base. Think the last count showed somthing like half the players is 18-29, a small percentage below, and a larger percentage spread 30 up to 99 or so. This does'nt appeal to the people wanting fast action right away, and I don't think this is where EVE will get many of its future subscribers.

Was actuallly quite surprised when I found many of my corpmates have children, steady jobs and are all grown up ShockedRazz Nerds! Very Happy hehe

Probably mostly younger players that expect the game to keep them busy, while in the MMORPG that is EVE it's actually the players that create the content.

You're going to find critics like this on any game that you play.

I was hooked in the first 5 minutes of playing. The whole thought of being one out of thousands running around in this huge galaxy just boggles the mind. Another thing that I like is that you can do fast paced stuff, then slow it down a bit and mine or do courier missions.

There is something in this game for everyone.

You have to remember that most people who play online rpg's are people who think diablo2 is great. The thing with diablo2 is, even though it has very little content and is practically entirely hack and slash, you can get very far in just a day with little to no work involved - a lot of online rpg's are like this.
These people are just impatient.
They don't take the time you need getting started to actually judge the game, they judge it on how they played for 2 weeks and didn't get ****, they're still flying freakin merlins in 0.8 space doing level 1 missions and mining veldspar.

Well, 2 weeks isn't ****. That's what they need to realise. These games run for years, if you could get somewhere in 2 weeks, the game would be balls.

EDIT - spelling

I dunno. When I first started EVE I was okay with it, but didn't quite see the joy in the much-lauded combat system the game had. Of course this was from the viewpoint of an Ibis with a civilian gatling rail chasing training drones.

Of course, then I saw my first Paradise Cruise Missile explosion. My pupils dilated to the size of silver dollars and I've been hooked since.

I can see how some people couldn't get into it, but yes, it does seem to be mostly the sort that run on sugar and actually like CGI martial arts movies.

Exactly, I hope this never changes. While I don't expect everyone to like EVE, the majority of people I have met in this game have been slightly more intelligent than your average Joe. Judging by the way in which these guys have conveyed their criticisms suggests they should be playing Time Crisis.

I think Eve is a great game. It brings me back to Privateer days although considerably more sophisticated. I hope Eve continues to evolve for many years to come. While I'm not an expert on MMORPG, I can't think of a more forward looking, scalable game than Eve. I give CCP its due credit.

These two are in my opinion the most funny ones. I have yet to find a single real 'L33T child' or 'CS kiddo'. Ah well. I think the game is better off without these kind of people. I'm kind of happy with EVEs playerbase, it's the most mature one I've found yet.

Interestingly enough, EVE is the first MMOG, that hooked me up enough to make me pay for it. I tried UO, AO, Neocron, Everquest, Asherons Call, DAoC and some more I can't think off right now, and I think most of them are fun, but not fun enough to pay loads of money for them. That's coming from me, being sixteen years old. Doh.

NO PVP? thats what the bloody game revolves around. miners mine researchers research bpo's builders buy minerals and bpos and build who in turn buy these items too kill whoever/whatever they please (and dont get me started on alliance warfare)i bet you half of these people didnt realize there was anything called "get the F* out of empire space"

heh, the reviews on that site are almost always like thoes, on just about ever mmo.

I recall when I got in beta and was just dumped in space. No toturial, nothing. "Um, what the hell do I do?". Simple - you start experimenting. EVE is built for those that are willing to take a chance, the ones curious (insane?) enough to try something [new] out.

I hate MMO's that are super dumbed down (can you say Earth & Beyond, or Horizons to name a few?). EVE is so incredibaly complex it is mind bogeling. And with all the new stuff comming in SHiva/Exodus It will be even better.
