1, you are driving down the highway and see a car with a skull and cross bone sticker on it, causing you to think ...BOUNTY!

2. you refer to a freeway on or ramp as a jump gate.

3. You see a police car and think ...Concord.

4. You house becomes your HQ. (fortunately we are not locked in our rooms when we arrive)

5. you see a commercial truck and you think Iteron mark 5.

6. You start referring to your kids as "DRONES" and you tell you wife to call them in.

7. Your real life "Drones" start getting sub categorized by age. 0-9 mining drones, 10 - 15 scout drones, 16 to 18 medium drones and so on.

8. You call in to work and tell you boss you can't come in cause your girlfriend (or wife) Eve needs you.

9. You go to a stor and think of the parking lot as the stations hanger.

10. You house slowly takes on the appearance of your in game room (or cell).

When you hear someone talk about 'freedom' or go on a tirade about 'anarchy', you realize just how bad it would really be, because you've seen that there are just as many people who use their freedom to destroy great things, as there are those who build great things.

Still don't see what the draw is there. The game is literally terrible.

Meh, it's just a cry for attention. He's upset at CCP and/or EvE, and is taking said frustration out by going out of his way to attempt to coerce others into joining him. One of those 'If I can't have it, nobody should' mindsets that is common in small people.

Don't give it a thought. If Perpetuum is good, it'll prove out in the end.

Just like eve was in the beginning. You need to give the game a little time for it to pay off.

CCP was doing something nobody else had done. They were leaving a game world open to players being bad people. They were using a code that wasn't mainstream. And they were doing it all for ****s and giggles and their own want.

It's one thing to start the ball rolling in a niche market (free choice is NOT what the average MMO player really wants, being perfectly honest). It's another thing to try to make good off anothers approach.

We'll see how Perpetuum handles things. Do they take it a step further and polish a great game philosophy? Or do they follow directly in CCP's evolutionary footsteps, from gamers making a game to a business making a profit?

That's up to time.

Yeah. Perpetuum in some ways is like eve, but in others they have taken a different approach, these things need to be learned to receive the full benefit of the game.

Anyway, people will make up their own minds, but it is nice to have the choice.

And your still here? They must have done something right then babes. Maybe Perpetuum is going down the same road only time will tell, but my instincts tell me that Perpetuum holds promise.

Being as honest as I know how, the fact that you feel it holds promise is why you will spend years keeping up with it, playing it, routinely coming back, and also probably why you will want to burn down it's headquarters a decade from now.

The illusion of promise and possibilities holds a lot of sway, but is a double edged sword. In the one hand, you look forward to the future so much you can't wait. In the other, especially in video-game land, you build all these dreams and ideals, and they aren't anywhere close to what the owners of the game have in mind ... and the irony is, you end up feeling like THEY betrayed YOU by not designing THEIR game to YOUR wants.



The secret is to just accept what IS, and not what WILL BE. Because what will be ain't always what you hope will be. I don't play EvE because one day I want to be able to have a bar in a station somewhere. I want that, but I play EvE because I like the game that it is.

Your dreams, and fears, can ruin a game just as fast as any REAL decisions these developers make.

Personally I find eve to have become old and tired and has taken to many wrong turns to ever be the game I thought it might become. But that is just my opinion.

You know you are addicted to EVE when…

you consider buying pieces of jewelry that actually impair your senses, especially your eyesight, instead of helping to make them better.

you think wow, those designer jeans are pretty cheap!

you wonder why should your shoes matter, nobody is really going to look at them.

you long for more than one currency to mask just how much you are really spending on vanity items.

you call non-essential things, like clothing, vanity items.
