And I am sad. It has been more than 4 years since I've start to play this game and now, I feel it more and more as a distant thing.
Sad is that I am not the only one, many of my friends quit playing or reduced their activity.
Maybe I am the one that changes.

And no, you can not have my stuff!

Probably you are right. Thank you for your advice. Still, I am afraid, but it seems that this is a good solution.

And it don't hurt to keep your accounts skilling either (if not the RL cash burden is too much). If you decide to return, you got even more beefed up skills.

Personally I find that EVE in moderation is the best thing. Some weeks I seem to play more, and others hardly at all.

Yeah... I used to love it but I don't really log in anymore.. I'm in a great corp with vast resources.. But every time I log in, I have to fleet up and get on team speak, I have to pvp if any hostiles come in system.

I just can't play like that.. I'm a 21 year old american, I don't have the patience, I want to log on and do some stuff with some buddies and hop off whenever I want.

Been having a great time with the new Battlestar Gelatica Online... It's just like eve, but instead of having to mine/grind for a week if you lose your ships, You simply get a new one and go back to the fighting within minutes.. Then you log off when your bored...

Not saying its better... But eve just isn't fun anymore.. I could go back to being a solo player but, Then it gets more boring because I have little way to do anything that will make me any money (The entire point of eve imho) Can't do jack crap without isk.

And honestly.. Eve is over-branching-out... There so many damn things to do in this game its all just too complicated to deal with...

Also dog fights are amazing in BGO, You actuilly fly the ship, instead of just "Approach" or "orbit" or "Alpha strike!"


Just trying to add my 2 cents... It saddens me because I've been here since August 2003... minus a few months here and there, But I fear after this.. I won't be reactivating for a few years.. Till eve makes some big changes...


One of the biggest disappointments is that eve is tiny now. In terms of actual universe... Theres 5000 people everywhere in the entire map. I miss the beginning where I might rat for 3 hours, then run into a stranger and we'd team up for the day. Now its just.... a big spaceship destruction derby....

I'm so torn, between what a beautiful and intricate game eve is, and the fact that its just a hassle to play and there is really no reward system.. Most I've ever had in this game is a billion isk.. and no I wasn't grinding every day working up my isk, I'm freaking 21! I got school, and parties, and friends, and drinks to drink, and places to go.... There's simply no time nor interest in hopping into teamspeak and talking **** for 2 hours with 20 other old guys while we try to find an enemy to fight... It's just.. stupid..

Ahhhh... :( (Don't ask for stuffs, I has none, I wish I could give my SP to someone... such a waste of 70m SP..

Ill say first off that i love playing EVE but I took a break from it also and returned while was away I found another game to play to kind of break up the time when i want a change from EVE its called World Of Tanks and is in open beta now but will vary soon be full release. I found that alot of EVE players are playing it and it is vary addictive so you may want to try it out and who knows maybe you just need a change once and awhile and will still play EVE.Cool

I cancelled my sub once for about a year because I was too busy raiding in EQ2 and barely ever logged in. I regret it now b/c I resubbed and lost out on a year's worth of training.

I barely play now as it is, I log in, create a corp to sell, start my PI, start some skill then log out, but at least I'm continuing my training for when I do feel like getting involved again. I think the main reason for my boredom is I run solo. I have too much going on in game to join a corp at this point I think. Maybe one of these days.

I would really just stop playing and keep your skills going, then if you REALLY aren't going to play after a year or so, unsubscribe. More often than not, people end up coming back, and if you keep up with your skills you'll be in a better position than if you unsub and then end up coming back later.

I have almost lost interest a few times, but what keep me coming back is my corp, more specifically the guys in it.

If you ever feel like solo is getting to you... just drop whatever you are doing (in-game) and join a corp, don't set arbitrary limits on yourself, that will just further reduce the quality of EVE time for you.

The sad thing is that my fiends too, barely log in. We were friends, once. In game and real life. Now, it is quite strange.

I should just say **** it and run with someone sometime, but I've got about 12 bil in assets and a good majority of it is tied up in BPOs and a POS. I might just take this character and join up with someone and leave the other 2 to handle the POS etc though sometime. I've been considering RvB for quite a while now b/c I really just wanna pew-pew, and trying to do that solo is futile.

My other problem is not having a whole lot of time to devote outside the weekends. My past experiences with corps are they either get wardec'd and hide/dock up, or you end up just running solo anyways without any access to anything the corp has to offer.

Corps are good, because the things can be lot more easier when you are working as a team.
But nevertheless, it has to be fun. Soloing is hard these days and, when you have a team, almost always you encounter a bigger one. Due to the fat that is quite hard to maintain a good stock of ships, if you are not in 00 area, may players prefer to avoid battles unless they are not 100% sure of success.
Missioning is not the best thing to do and permanent ops, same story

I have been there too. lol I have left Eve so many times, always "Never to return again" but Eve always calls me back.

Best thing o do is to take a break, make it a good one, 4-6 months, then after you have tried a few other games, and decided that "yeah, many are OK and can be fun for a little while, none of them are Eve"

There are big changes in the pipe-line, so have a break, and come back refreshed for the new challenges.

Oh, and if you do look at other games. Fallen Earth and World of Tanks seem to have a big (We play Eve too) player base

Thank you Max, I will do so. I am sure that, someday, I will come back. :)
