Not really, I was the kind of guy that sold via STEAM the 5$ special offers of EVE Online to friends and relatives, talked about EVE to people and managed to engage in interesting conversations regarding the Economy, the Quarterly Newsletter, the CSM and many other things, but not anymore.

Why? Buthertz, QQ, sad panda faces, tears for the minmatar engines, loop /wrists, you name it, to me it was simply a matter of principle. I will remain active for a while as my sub is year long, but like many others have slowly backed off supporting the game and I'm sliding it next to my RIFT hate list.

That's me though, the new batch of people will find this interesting enough or boring enough to make its own conclusions. Like a CCP Apologist once said referring to an issue that has nothing to do with my self-righteous indignation, it's not 2003 anymore. So obviously, me being me and seeing the influx of faceless youngsters flooding these threads I'm compelled to do the opposite out of principle and love of my own ideals in this world.

Will remain here seeing how the game progresses and will make a final choice in about 10 months.

TLDR: no, EVE sux, I won't reccomend it anymore to anyone, specially after the absurd video of Gallente beating Amarr<or anything for that matter>, that was the most out of touch promo video of EVE ever, so the "I was there", became the "OMG WTH /facepalm" video.

Hell no....not with the future of EVE being a couple rooms and a barbie MT store

Yes I would recomend it. It was a fun 2 years learning about eve. Some things interested me some didn't, but no regrets.

If you don't have much time to devote to computer games I don't think the game is much fun beyond 2 years though. At that point you either commit lots of time to the game or gtfo. At least as long as fw remains broken.

I'm afraid not. I HATE saying this! I've been playing EVE since I was 13, I'm now almost 21. I used to brag about EVE so much that you would think CCP are paying me for marketing. Now I'm completely silent.

No I don't recommend EVE at all. A year ago or even further back? HELL YEA! Today - NO!

I would feel the fool if I did only becuase the game is just so terribly broken in so many ways....and its future is questionable at best.

I have for 5 years. As always, I will tell people what I think about Eve/CCP. I have nothing good to say right now. Perhaps they will turn things around in the future.

Have done many times in the past, wouldn't dream of doing so now.

If in twelve months ccp haven't managed to completely flush it down the toilet then I might revisit that opinion but not before.

I want gameplay, not roleplay. Fml.

Previously I did, the hook never sank though. The game is extremely niche, dark, and unforgiving. These days with the attitude towards it's own consumers I would never promote this product to a friend.

As much as i disagree with the direction the game may taking in the future - yes. I would recommend this game to my friends (i do it quite a lot). BUT, i recommend it ONLY to people who i know have not an attention span of a one-day fly.

And besides, i think Eve is still THE BEST space-mmo out there. Flame me if you want, i have my opinion and i keep it. If CCP manages to **** up, i will just silently leave. No rage - because this would sadden me.

Recommend it all the time.

I got my nephew and all his friends playing. Say what you want about the recent MT scare, which were mostly built on groundless fear, EVE is still the best space sim mmo out there.

I used to allways brag about EVE and how great it was (in current job there are loads of WoW players). However given the recent events and the fact that Incarna is a great steaming pile of poo and slows my computer to a crawl and kills any attamept to multi box, nah I would'nt recomend EVE to anyone.

Absolutely yes 6 months ago, definitely not now as it's unplayable...

Unplayable?? Maybe if you're using a computer from 1999!

If I'll tell people I play game where virtual shirt/pants cost more than real - they'll call me ******. So most likely not.

Most definitly YES.

Even after the last few eve problems(communication)

Eve offers something you can not find in any other game. No not even in perpetiuum (or how its called)

A good communitie
a multi diverse gameplay (something for everybuddy)
and Everybuddy on 1 servercluster (deducting the chinees and jananees server)
Yes even you could make a diffrence mentality.
