People say that EVE is dying. Sometimes I see long I quit complaint threads that are boring to read and they contain nothing that makes sense to me. I often create constructive ideas based on people complaining something that makes sense to me.
As headline says: Say it with one sentence what is bad/wrong in EVE.
Upwell structures have too few financing options.
Too much dependency on a veteran playerbase (that is slowly aging out of the game) for proselytizing EVE to the masses/communicating crucial info to prospective rookies to mitigate EVE’s depressingly low new player retention.
Paying real world money for plex, selling it in game for that shiny new ship you been after i.e. a freighter. Undock get to the local gate and you get bumped for hours, you pay them the ransom which costs you another plex and then they all jump in and blow you sky high and you lose everything. Thats your problem right there. New players won’t stand for that ■■■■ and will quit faster than light speed.
Undock, and get bumped and held for ransom for hours in what, a Velator? Are we still talking about new players? Cuz no one’s going to bump a Velator or hold it for ransom ever. Especially now that plex vaults are a thing.
Horrible UI, also lots of annoying bugs and the waiting for everything.
New player and I mean new players generation like my brother (we, older guys we can handle it) will uninstall right after game throws them into space with default useless overview and all windows all over the place.
By waiting for everything I mean that whatever you do, you will spend 50% or maybe even more of the playtime waiting for something to happen. For your ship to warp from gate to game, to jump and appear on another gate, to manufactory/research work being done, for mining lasers fill your cargo, for another prey fall into your gatecamp, for another prey that won’t dock on your roam, for another player buys your stuff, for another player to haul your stuff, for skills to train and various timers that prevents you play and more.
