I originally created my first character (RIP) in October 2004, not long after Eve became generally available. I played for a couple years then took a short 2y break, came back (with this character) and played again for a few years. I last left in 2010 and am just getting back.
Almost everything has changed. And I’m effectively re-learning the game mechanics, strategies, etc. But I have noticed that most of the original players who have never left have had their opinion of the history of the game morphed due to gradually accepting change over time. I however am still going through the “shock” phase.
So many new things, so many changed things… So, ask me anything about current state vs. old Eve and see how my memory and perception give a different opinion on seemingly simple topics.
