I have taken a break recently. Mainly due to not wanting to play the long evolved current status quo. Its not because of the so called “Steep Learning curve” well because its not a difficult game. Not for lack of desire. Not for fear of being podded. I like the somewhat harsh environment. For this is the reason,in part. I’m not totally interested in working towards growth when there is now a 15 year disparity in the players. I’m not interested in being part of the P2W fast track. I like to earn what I get and have. I’m no carebear. I do like a challenge.
For these reasons,I can’t find it in myself to put out the cash for a year subscription. Which I would do if I seriously had a chance to make even the slightest difference in Eve and not have it take 5 or 10 years. The competition in way of the disparity I described can’t really be challenged or overcome with any sense of sanity. Every so often I come back to Eve and leave for the same reason. Its tough to challenge against an opponent with hundreds of trillions in assets.
Which brings me to this.
I don’t play this game but I did sub up when it launched for one month,years ago to check it out. Though the publisher is a larger company, Eve online at this moment has a larger current active player base than the game I linked.
An old game possibly finding new life by way of an introduction based on its launch date criteria,with many of the current QoL aspects we all expect current mmo’s to have.
Imagine what Eve could be like if for example CCP could greatly diminish RMT incentives by virtue of eliminating them. Imagine what Eve could be like without Tidi. Imagine what Eve could be like when a Titan came with stature and respect due to its scarcity and unequalled power in the theater of battle. ■■■■! Today you can buy one for $649. WTF! Imagine if being a Mercenary was fun again. Imagine what Eve could be like if NPCs didn’t mine rocks because Player fleets destabilize markets by going way over the top stupid running 50 Rorquals. Just imagine what you knew,that was good for the game that worked well for what ever play style/career you chose. Lastly,for any player to put on a mask and play the dream…
Its easy to respond to this post and say well “Eve doesn’t have or do that anymore”. Its easy to say “NO! I don’t want to lose my efforts because of a requested change”. It easy to say “This isn’t the game for you”. I could go on many a day on the dissenter quotes.
Here is an idea another company is doing at this moment. It would be worth it to keep tabs on the attempt.
Just thoughts from a gamer.
