I didn't know this one... Really love it ^^.
For the OP, Eve is not the casual theme park you can find everywhere. The harsh environment, steep learning curve, the community are the specificity of Eve and make the game a lot more rewarding than any other MMO I ever played.
As opposed to what you say, the sens of accomplishment is a lot higher in this game. When you need so much effort and sweat to put something together, and even more to keep it alive, there is a true feeling of accomplishment.
Also, we can all mine all day long to make ISK, build ships and modules to sell, run mission to kill rats, but in the end, if ships and modules are not destroyed, who will buy them ? Nobody. Then, who will need to mine and build ? Nobody. Who will leave the game ? All industrialists and miners, but also traders. THIS is what would kill Eve, very very fast.
The game need everything to stay alive : miners, industrialists, mission runners, but also pirates, gankers and scammers. If one side disappear, the other will follow almost immediately.
So, if you don't like Eve as it is, this game is not for you and it's better to leave. There is no shame or blame in this statement, Nothing in this world is made for everyone. Find a game that suits your needs/will and enjoy it as much as we enjoy Eve's harsh environment.
Fly safe to your new world.
