So much people are playing EVE Echoes. In my opinion they all want to be a part of EVE from beginning. How much people played EVE online before? I am one of them. A fresh start is what I wish for EVE Online. Just like Echoes now, but I want the big game.
But whatever, I want to play a way more the half game, but get the same start as everybody else, than playing the full game, but never get the chance to write history. The real stories in EVE are already written. That´s my opinion.
What would it be like to get an EVE online 2.0.
If you start to play EVE online today, one of the first things you learn is: you will never be part of the history and you will never reach the big players with hundred millions of skillpoints. The possibility to buy skillpoints, won´t change the mind.
Imagine a NEW new Eden, nothing is set. Give the possibility to everyone to get a big player.
(And something else: Give it a little bit more rollplaying, what happened to walking in stations, that was one of the most promising works you have ever done - but stopped it A lot of players play the most of there time in stations, sitting around, playing with fittings, talking to others, try to get money via the market. To be in my on quarter and walk around, watch my ship from my balcony… I loved it… that was some peace I missed in EVE)
Everybody should interact together, but give some people the chance to play on there own.
Some people love it to sit in the asteroid belts and keep on mining with 5 Accounts in Highsec. Just to see the income flow. But today all the (almost) maxed out players are so bored, they gank everywhere and everything they can.
I love PVP, I love lowsec, I love nullsec, everything has it own style, everything works.
But not the highsec and the way new players get in the game.
Make a new server and it will get much more newbie friendly to keep more and more paying players.
Watch the numbers that are happening over the years and now with EVE Echoes.
I am sure you won´t loose players, you will gain 10 times more.
And yes, if I would know the new server will be resetted again in 15 years, its really long enough to get in now.
It´s time to end, it`s time to start. Like Phoenix it will be more beautifull than before.
Don`t be the old game from the past, be the big game everybody plays and talks about.
