I am sure many will disagree with me but im going to warn anyone who is bored and maybe thinking of trying EVE online because you see there game ads spammed EVERYwhere . So whats so bad about it ? One word sums it up BORING
You log in and you pick a race/bloodline etc etc and then you start the newb tutorial . It has got a lot better then when I played eve many years ago but it is still sooooo boring . Eve requires something most WOW players do not have and that is the patience of an OAK . It’s a lot like chess its a strategy game in the long term . You have to train skills to be able to do anything fun and useful and training skills takes a LONG time I guess that is CCP way of keeping people subscribed rather then making real content ?
I downloaded a 480 page Manuel on EVE and read a good part of it while I was mining ( <— pretty much the only thing you can do as a new player besides run VERY boring agent missions ) You have to do a LOT of reading or you are going to make a lot of mistakes which will cost you a lot of time and effort such as training up mining when all you really wanna do is get in a capitol ship and blow up pirates and such .
Go the eve forums sometime and try and read what people are talking about you will be lost because EVE is so complex it has its own language practically . Like I said if your not a VERY patient person dont even bother and I fall in that category. For me Monopoly > Chess …which wow is like monopoly in comparison …jump in play have some fun
Long live wow it really is a great game especially if you ever compare it to the other poo thats out there .
edit ** Ok I wont leave without saying a few nice things . Eve has very nice graphics the SPACE and SHIP graphics sometimes are a thing to behold . The BEST thing about EVE is the community for the most part people in game and not only very nice but also very helpful . I really wanted to like this game for those reasons because I am a BIG fan of space sim games such as Freespace , Privateer , Homeworld …etc etc but sadly EVE is a huge let down
