I playED EvE because I liked the Sci-Fi universe that was persistent, and was a sandbox game in one of the truest senses of the word.

I cancelled EvE( 10 days till GTC runs out, just happened to stop by today to send a petition about cancelling) because CCP refuses to acknowledge or fix the RMT/Botting plague that has ruined 0.0 IMO.

OT:
Because there is no other decent sandbox mmo out there, although Perpetuum does start to appeal more and more.

Because its the only REAL sandbox 1 server MMO on the market.


Ditto, +1

Plus a few hours spent away from the harsh reality of real life relaxes me.
If I was not playing Eve, I would be playing some other MMO of similar attraction.
It's the sandbox that attracts me, much like Fallout(s) did for me on the PS3

Scanning down a wormhole, discovering ancient sites, finding "treasures", getting my azz handed to me by Sleepers, this all makes me play this game. Not PvP, Not Corps. Just plain sandbox enjoyment the way I want to play a game. I don't need a killboard to measure my epeen.

Cheers.

Probably someone who lost a ship in high-sec in a suicide gank.

No was someone who probably ganked you in hisec.
Someone who had seen the full gambit of what the game has to offer and seen it was all shallow garbage.

You just keep grinding those missions, pull the poker machine lever a few more times, you might just get a big reward.

As a Hi/lo-sec player I find this interesting. Funny how the null-seccers are currently spamming the forums about nerfing hi-sec to try and get more people to go to null. Hell yeah, let's trash everywhere for everyone...

You sound dissapointed with everything Eve in general. Someone who ganked me in hisec? I love it when people make crappy assumptions just to make themselves feel better about what they feel and write, just so they can somehow offer an insult. You couldn't be further off the mark.

Yes, I will keep grinding level 4 missions in nothing more than a stock-standard T2 fit Catalyst.
Yes, I will keep scanning down Wormholes in my stock-standard T2 fit Incursus and try and find all the lovely treasures it may have to offer, or have my azz handed to me by the inhabitants.

Get over it and get over yourself. Just because you're not having fun, you think no-one else is ?

'Nuff said.

I enjoy the concept of a persistent world filled with thousands of players who affect the course of events. Eve wins out over all the other MMOs for several reasons.

1. Eve is the only game I've found that actually lets the players affect the world in a meaningful way.
2. Eve does not require ludicrous amount of grinding to advance your character. True, isk does have to be earned but we have a vast amount of methods to earn that isk compared to other MMOs.
3. Eve's the only game that doesn't segment their population into separate servers. More variables in the sandbox makes for more interesting game play.
4. The absurd level of variety and complexity built into the game. There are aspects of Eve I haven't even experimented with. It's unlikely I'll ever hit a point where I've done it all.
5. Spaceships are way cooler than elves and gnomes.

Why do I play EVE ?

Because everything else I tried appeals to me far, FAR less than EVE.

Also, because I essentially play at no RL-cash charge, and I'm likely to be able to keep playing at no charge for decades to come.

- To make absurd amount if isk.

I play Eve to see my SP's counting up day after day. Occasionally log in to change a skill. Sometimes even fly a ship. There's only space for one MMOG in my life, so I'm just really waiting it out until another MMOG comes along like DAoC. I would go to WoW if it looked like Oblivion but I hate the cartoony graphics.

I love the complexity of industry and the marketplace in EvE.

First thing, surveys are useless. You cannot gain any usuable, authentic information from a survey. Because the information in a survey comes from opinions, and cannot be verified as 'truth' in any manner, the very nature of a survey makes it unscientific at it's very basic level.

But you are a college student studying this sort of thing, so you already know that!

But I'll bite anyway -

Been a computer gamer since the mid '80s, and have found that the gaming experience provided by the single-player games cannot match the player driven, open ended play offered by MMO's. So why EVE? The community here has a vastly smaller ratio of emo-rage kids to adults, and that is attractive to me. Every MMO that I have played, I have eventually been driven away from due to the lack of maturity and intelligence within the community. It's a game breaker for me. EVE has its share of kids and morons, but it is far less than most of the other games out there.

Because I love the "spacey" feeling of it and the graphics.....

oh, and one day i was mining and my 10 yr old nephew ask me; "what's the point of doing that?"

which inspired me to continue looking for the answer Rolling Eyes

Game mechanics allow semi-AFK play, i.e., mining. I do homework and mine simultaneously while the training queue chugs away.

Completely out of habbit at this point rather than because it's fun. Not enough good changes and way too many bad ones.

To answer your question in the strictest sense, I play EVE because each of its multiple sandbox activities; boring, benign or frantic suit my erratic mood swings during the time slot I have available to play.

To answer the question I want to answer. I was attracted to EVE because I was faithful to my childhood fantasies of what Braben and Bells ELITE could have been. May EVE never forget it's origins.
