I made the leap of gigantic faith and put some money down for SC. It took me a good while and it was mostly because I was content with Eve… until I wasn’t.
The game is bugged. But considering where it started from I am satisfied. Many people are bashing it for its incompleteness but to be honest SC is what everyone wishes a space game would be and has come a long way to be that game. No Mans Sky was a huge flop for the first few years until they patched the crap out of it and now it’s one of the highest rated games. SC is much more immersive than No Mans Sky and you can start to see how complicated the game is and yet beautiful when taking part in the persistent universe.
So, can SC be played, yes. Are there bugs, they are there. Is it worth it, it’s leaning more to a yes and I’ll tell you why. I’m a miner, I love mining, I love crack rock. So, when I woke up in my space bed, walked to the lobby, interacted with a console to have my ship delivered, headed to the pad, started up the ship, launched successfully, warped to the planet, entered the atmosphere, landed my ship and entered a cave to mine (this is not considering the trip I had to make to another planet to purchase my equipment), collected my minerals, went back to the ship, started up, launched, exited atmosphere, warped out, requested landing access, landed successfully, headed to a terminal and sold my minerals… well, god dayum I was immersed 100 feet into the game.
So why am I bringing this up in this forum? I love Eve and what it stands for. I really wish they would drop the mobile app game because that’s not what we are about, at least that’s what I’d like to think. Anybody that plays Eve is hardcore, simple. Our game to should reflect our passion for space gaming.
At the moment I will continue to play SC even though it’s incomplete because in its current state it completes a part of me.
Eve Devs, go talk to RI. Join forces or something. They need your stability and structure. Together we can create something great.
