How I win at EVE now in 2022
I no longer care about any changes or nerfs and simply readjust my game play accordingly, understanding everyone is experiencing the same changes.
I think of other players as a variant of AI, since I don’t know them personally, with some actions seeming less intelligent than an NPC, and others playing in God mode. I avoid God mode characters and feel more at home with the NPC types.
I set personal goals to reach and resist others negative chatter about why they were wronged.
I stopped playing the ISK per hour game.
Most Importantly, I can’t think of another game that has as many challenges as this one, at all levels of play.
I love space games, but I’ve had my rage quits over the years with EVE, but looking back, it was because I didn’t understand how or why I was playing an MMO. I play solo, but really like having people in the same sandbox as me, yes even the trolls and gankers.
This is truly what a sandbox game should be, and I don’t work for CCP.
Great post, I too can’t seem to stay away from the game and keep coming back. There’s nothing out there that even comes close to the depth of this space mmo.
I agree with everything you said except for the following:
I treat the players in this game the same way I treat people in real life. I get it we can’t all agree but I respect those differences. I also remember people have feelings too, and just because I don’t agree with them doesn’t mean I look down my nose at them or treat them like garbage.
Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
You sir, have learned to EVE.
Realy love this post.
Everybody should read it.
A agree completely.
My #2 was meant more as other players motives, goals, etc… even though they may not align with mine, they have their place in the game, just as I find my place. I was actually including myself in the NPC skill level of game play. I’m not very good at the game on a competitive scale, but do a bit better than a bot.
I stand corrected and thanks for clarifying your #2 point.
You have a great weekend!
