I played EVE for a bit last year, now I’m back because i couldn’t find another space game that looked and felt as appealing as this one, maybe someday i will find one even if it’s a pixel art single player one but for the time I really want to get into EVE, this game has a huge learning curve, at least it feel that way.
I played Star Citizen before but i can’t do it anymore i respect and love the vision for that game but i can’t be on something that just feels like it will be forever in a early access stage or it will sit there for a very long time, i do know that EVE in some ways it’s different but it’s here it’s finished, it still gets patched and updates, it has reached 20 years of life and it’s established in the industry of gaming, i didn’t play EVE until last year and for years and years i always heard the name EVE Online, for a certain story, huge battles costing thousands of dollars, a scam, treason…throughout the years i always heard this game’s name being mentioned and that’s something special, it means that this game has achieved something special, just like Warcraft or Starcraft, CS GO, there’s certain games that you always heard the names even if we don’t play them.
EVE Online seems to be a complex game in more ways than one, to have a steep learning curve but taking place in the universe i would imagine that some events would take place in it? I was talking to someone in the chat earlier on and the person mentioned that there are, we were talking about this because I really enjoy mining, that there are moon pulls like a station shoots a big laser or whatever it is into a moon to pull parts of it so that people are able to mine those parts, it seems that it only takes place a few times per week and the person told me that that’s a sight to see i want to go to the place and just sit there and watch it, it seems worth it to be honest. Sadly shortly i left the chat and the game because irl calls and i forgot to ask if other events like that or different take place in EVE? If so where can i know more about them? For good or bad i always tend to explore in the games i play and EVE taking place in a huge universe it seems to be that there is much to be discovered.
I also, when talking to people, get this feedback that in EVE we can set up to be whatever we want and i keep wondering how much is that? What can we be really in EVE, how many different lines of trade/professions can we be?
I also heard about stories of rescue missions, do those really take place in EVE or is it possible to do rescue missions or earn a life by trying to save people in the deepest and darkest corners of space?
I apologize if i touched different points on this thread but EVE Online when i look at it, and I’m speaking from the most rookiest noobiest perspective possible, seems to be a Huge complex game only by looking at it’s surface and when i start do delve into it very slowly it seems to be so much more, now to someone like me that’s fairly new in the space gaming ambience it’s a dauting thought but at the same same time there’s also a sense of wonder and excitement into it.
