I gave Eve a try starting almost two months ago. I cannot recommend to new players for a few reasons.
Eve really tries to much to strongly encourage new casual gamers to join a corporation, even going so far as to allow gankers to operate with impunity & high organization in areas newer gamers play as well as blocking major space lanes with an ill-conceived alien invasion.
Eve also applies their rules to all players equally including criminals. Which is quite sad to me if you’re an in game criminal no you shouldn’t expect to get the same sort of courteousness as a regular player.
In short any potential gamer looking for a casual experience should look elsewhere. Way too much commitment/involvement or grief from veteran players. This game should be a hard pass for those without a significant time commitment to it.
