I've played Eve for 5yrs trust me it is a lot of work.They say it has over 500k players;dont be fooled more like 50000 hardcore vets with at least 3 or 4 other characters.This is a game that forces you to join a corp and that's cool.But if it is a low level alliance you get trashy systems.If you get in a great alliance expect to be called to duty,if not expect to get booted.If you build a 100 dollar ship expect to lose it. EVE is not for the faint of heart there is no game played that will that remotely comes close to this EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOAST. Dont expect to jump right in like a twitch fps and get instant action. My suggestion to all is dont hoard and travel light.

To the folk who wrote: its like comparing GTA and Need for Speed. Well buddie if you aint go the time, you wanna jump straight into the action and log out before your mate gets a chance to say ''ok thats enough for now''. EvE is a niche title. Simples.

Enjoyment in eve is all about attitude. Whether it's gankin, fleet fights, small gang roams, industry, or markets, there's a place for all the different play styles that you can think of.

naaa. don't play eve. it is a beautiful game. but after six years or so, after you realize you have hardly more assets as when you started, and all your friends have stopped playing, and there is nothing more for you to do than mine asteroids endlessly, you will get burned out. Hell they screwed up the missioning system so bad you cant even run high level ones for money anymore without having one of three ships in the game that can handle it. that or a big fleet of buddies. nothing more for the solo pilot to do anymore in this game. So sad.

You can be useful and wanted in fleets from day one. It's attitude not skill points that make the difference. Skills are broad rather than deep. Thus, a newer character that focuses can be as "skilled" as 10 year vets on similiar systems in short order. The vet, however will be skilled at a wider variety of systems. This creates an organic system wherein as you grow with the game and experience different aspecs you gather more and more skills naturally that apply to your changing interests.

I could never get into this game.

Still using that broken skill system that takes 394829384298432 years just to level skills to a point where people actually want you in their fleets and to actually be able to do some of the more enjoyable things the game has to offer.

I Pass, fix the skill system then you will get my sub back.

CCP are undertaking a massive amount of work to fix major systems so expect (even more) bugs. If anything it will be "fixed" in a year or two and well worth playing for even more reasons.

Should be an interesting time to try it out for this rate of change as many of the bitter vets will be adapting to change that you'll see as "normal".

So, in summary, the game is getting better but avoid the official forums and stay away from the toxic community - head straight for EVE University and you'll have a good start and many years of enjoyment.

Like any game it has its population fluctuations, but EVE is stronger than ever and on average is getting stronger. In fact it is quite impressive how strong the numbers are for such an old MMO (though that doesn't do it justice considering development is still more active than ever). Numbers of players who buy the game through Steam is low, but that is because Steam absolutely stinks when paired with EVE.

eve won't die. It's way to unique in the game market. There is no game with such a metagame/economy/freedom for play. And no game which has such big encounters between player factions. There are even players living off the game, just by leading big player communities and so on.
Comparing it to WoW is like comparing GTA with Need for Speed...
