Playing for a year now, I can say for a fact that this is one of the greatest games I've ever played. From the helpful community , overall depth of game, and great friends you make playing it, it's by far an amazing experience that shines above not only other games of the genre, but every other game out there. Having everyone on a single server lets you, a single person, make an impact on the ENTIRE gaming community. Be it through commanding a giant fleet or being the tech 1 frigate you trained into 2 hours after getting the game, you make a difference.
There aren't any specific goals set in the game, so you'll need to make your own. Unlike most games, once you've chosen your path it will take you a while to master it. So while your skills train passively (yay no long grinds for skills!) so do your player skills. I've been pvp'ing in this game for 10 months and I still have a lot to learn in JUST pvp
. Not to mention the hundreds and hundreds of other non-roller coaster career paths you can take up, you will always have something new to strive towards. You won't need to kill a wild hog 500 times to use your gear, since your skills train passively!
The pvp in this game is also unreal. I've never had games consistently make my heart race like this one. Be it you barely killed a guy and you yourself only have a sliver of health left, or you just won a fleet fight where you were just commanding 50 people, and you just barely came out on top from the 75man gang you ran into!
Just in pvp, the depth is unreal. With hundreds upon hundreds of modules, ship types, and environmental factors it keeps pvp a challenging and fresh experience day in and day out. You can change your game from flying solo, flying in small gangs with a few of your bros, to HUGE fleet fights with thousands of people!
Although the learning curve is steep if you go at it alone, it's not meant to be played that way. There's nothing else like making new friends and playing through the game with a group of people you care about and smacktalk and chill on comms with. With only a day of training - you can fly and ♥♥♥♥ with players who've already been playing for 10 YEARS.
I highly recommend you at least give the trial a shot, and hit me up so I can give you a hand. If I'm not available, be sure to stop by the channel "R-V-B" and join them to get your feet wet with some fast paced and heart racing pvp! All in all, I r8 8/8 m8
