I played Eve on and off for 5+ years, have multiple characters - all none playing.

/emote: Sigh.

No feedback option so I guess dumbass "General Discussion" is the only wtg.

Ok, got the e-mail, downloaded Eve latest release and fired it up,,,

First off - the character creator is poor. The reasons I have are it's buggy (Cant choose all colours), slow at times and the variation in your character's features is poor.

Ok bypassing the initial disappointment let's move on.

Within seconds I am just completely bored.

I can understand people staying maybe for a few years - and don't get me wrong SOME of those times have been fun but it was the PEOPLE not your game content that made it so.

I CANNOT see a reason to "play" Eve.

Most of the content is in lowsec and nullsec.

Abuse of the Eula has been rife in those regions for YEARS.

Why should I bother to spend my real life money trying to the play a game where the developer cant even be bothered to make sure I'm having a good time,,,

In fact CCP have been actively turning a blind eye to the abusers, promoting the abusers actions through their own magazines, news articles, spending real life cash and developers time making the abusers game better, giving them better returns and best of all making sure they don't even have to spend any of their real life cash to "play" via PLEX.

Now consider those same abusers have kept legit paying players out of JOKE sec for years, denying legit players from the content they have PAID for.

To cap it all, some of them have even been making a living out of their power base in null sec.

CCP you suck.

I don't think you even know what a game is, go buy a dictionary.

Now come on Erica, be nice. I'm sure the people at CCP's are doing their best.

Well, the OP has some good points, though CCP is obviously still larning and still needs to get it's act together.
Talk about lack of a permanent balancing effort or even team (the first thing the team would have to do is to create the infrastructure to make permanent balancing possible). And this is where most of the problems with game mechanics are burried.. FOTM here, OP there, useless stuff that.

That the OP considers the biggest thing about Eve to be other people and the interaction with them though is very impressive.

So, thanks for the kind impression - I liked it - and see you around the next time you take a look at Eve. Very Happy

I can relate to that last bit. Heck I've been trying to tell them to let us play a game without a system designed to encourage griefing for awhile now. EVE is more than a little one sided, with actual mechanics in place that assist griefers, gankers, and the like. Point of fact, there is no sysem or mechanics in place, to encourage people to be other than pirates.

If you want to succeed at EVE, you pretty much have to take the securiy hit, and walk down the dark, desolate path of the griefer. Actually, it's not so dark and desolate; it is in fact filled with life and home to vibrant, wild parties, because nobody who plays EVE for long, (except maybe myself and a few others), stays the path of the non-griefer. It's very lonely on this side, and there is almost nobody to really play with, because they have all left the game or gone over to the other side.

Okay, I'm being pedantic or maybe obtuse, or a little of both. The reality is I am no more interested in playing EVE than you seem to be, and it has nothing to do with the character creator. That's just your hardware not keeping up with the times, and maybe the times not being quite ready for the background code for the character creator. Even my system gets a little dodgy around it sometimes, and it's perfectly capable of handling much more intense graphical simulations.

So yes, you're right EVE sucks, and I think I found the answer here:
They will not be catering to immaturity in the game, however, they would like to see these types of offenses policed by players, rather than in-game mechanics.
- maybe this is the problem. Given the attitude presented here, combined with the complete lack of tools for 'good' players to fight bad, and utter disregard for the fact that their agression mechanics make any player policing other players a pirate with a GCC and neg. security status...

Yeah, that's pretty much it. Not only does it encourage griefing, it rewards it, and make it so anyone fighting back is either getting shot by gate guns, or letting the ganker warp scram, web, and shoot them before taking action, aside from trying to run like hell.

What's new? This is EVE as they say.

So yeah, I understand, and I'm sure somebody else is, and I'm pretty sure it's not CCP. That doesn't make them suck though. They just seem to think it's the way people want to play. Just read their recent comments on Dust, and how they're leaving it open to player interaction like some sort of mad experiment. Same thing they did with EVE, same thing they're doing with WoD.

Sorry, but I don't think it's going to change. My only suggestion would be to join a Nullsec alliance, and get in that way. There really isn't another way.

OP cannot play a game where it does not tell you to go kill 10 bats to level up to 2

The problem is, this just shows your lack of imagination, there is just soooo much to do that is fun and exciting.

Very long quote.

I'd just like to point out that I've had plenty of fun without going down the "dark path", as long as you can find the right people there's no issue. Besides, why not wardec the griefers? That'd make shooting back at them legal.

Sure ganking and all sounds like an everyday occurrence but are you seriously getting harassed that much? If so that's... alot. Oh yeah, there is at minimum one mechanic (other than wardeccing them) that can be used to stop griefers, and that's actually player made. Hire a merc corp on them (player policing :D).

To be honest though, two of my oldest EVE buddies have some serious negative sec status, but that's because of lowsec pew pew (does include popping people just for being there but by no means only that).

imo it's not boring because there is little to do, it's boring because doing stuff takes forever.
