EvE Online is a great game, but I can't recommend it.
How is a game great, yet not worth buying? The community and its age.
During the early days EvE Online, the galaxy was a mysterious expanse that everyone could explore and exploit. Corporations and alliances started up, recruiting new members to increase their power and prestige. Everyone was equal in flight ability as everyone was new to the combat, and battles felt real even though they were programmed.
As the game progressed, alliances forged by blood and steel became dominant, and the once free null sec started being run by player run alliances. The pigs mimic the humans, even in virtual space. Alliances were toppled by new alliances who fought against the tyranny. These alliances repeated the tyranny of their conquests, old mottos and colors only used for advancing the power of the alliance.
Today, while none will acknowledge the state, EvE is in decay. New pilots face the brick wall of old players with many times their skill points, and cannot hope to fight to win in most scenarios. Pirates no longer are the feared roamers of low sec and null sec, but the harassers who kill ships of much lesser value to prove nothing to themselves. Faction space is either a warm womb for "carebear" pilots afraid of what has become of the less secure regions or a transit area for the rest.
When I play EvE today, my experience is empty. I derive no satisfaction from driving through run down areas still inhabited by the boring.
What can you play instead of playing EvE? Ask yourself the question again when a superior space mmo has been released; it seems like its release will occur far into the future.
