I will do my best to keep it short and to the point and will summarize what I can;
EVE is a PVP game and an MMO.
A. Yes, and while it has elements of PVE there is no exclusivity to PVE content at some point you will have to be dropped in the pond with all the predators and these predators take on every shape and ugly characteristics you can imagine. So to help understand if eve is a good fit for you I will give you some points on why it may not be;
Do you prefer the immersion of an undisturbed environment?
A. Yes, then from 1 to 10 take a point away, you have 9 points left, 10 being a good match, 1 being a bad match.
Do you want to farm for points, rewards, and in game currency without restrictions from others who want to actively deny you your goal, if yes, then take 2 points away.
B. People will in fact deny you this, the reasons are unimportant they just do it because they can.
Do you hate, absolutely hate loss taken by another player who no matter what reason they do this, then rub it in to get what they came for, take 2 off.
C. Players will, eve players are some of the most aggressive, trolling, and psychopathic players on the net.
Do you want more content then just being in space or a station spinning your ship, do you want to build an outpost or your own ship, land on planets find things others have never seen yet in game, if yes, then take 1 point away.
D. EVE is only a spaceship game, the only environment with meaningful movement is flying around in space, you cannot land, you cannot truly have the freedom to build YOUR ship, or your outpost/base, it is as it is, the structure that is EVE will never change because of the code it is written in, no amount of hoping will change it.
Do you like defeating boss characters, keeping the kill drops for yourself, the shiny stuff you get, if yes take 2 points away.
E. There is a limit to the size and drop you can achieve based upon the area in which you are in, even if you do go to those places having shiny stuff will bring players who are looking to take it from you, your shiny stuff makes you a target and those things that made you feel good will make others feel good that they either took it or destroyed it.
You gets no help, if you go to the forum to ask for help half the players will try and be forum warriors and troll your post to death, 1 point away.
F. EVE can be complex, I still struggle with things and need help, if forum duels are not your thing and you find them upsetting EVE will upset you.
If you have real life issues and use the game to escape them, then take 1 point away.
G. By playing eve you are inviting more problems into your life because of the very things above, you are inviting others into your sphere, they will dump on you, they will revel in your anguish and they will betray you, in the end EVE is only as good as the person playing it, if your able to deal with people in real life you will be able to deal with eve’s environment. If you find yourself above 5 you will be ok with it, if you find yourself below 5 it is probably best to look at other games, I find myself at about a 7, but sometimes at 5, I find that I do enjoy aspects of the game and do interact but then there are the other times I want no interaction, it is those times I simply put long training skills on and some research bpo’s and log off, when I’m ready I log back in to find some positive changes waiting for me.
