Okay, I don’t like MMOs. I absolutely hate the threat of PVP in any game. I don’t like to compete and never have had the time or will to be good in it.
Every time I launch a game, I expect it to adjust itself to my needs, to my available time and schedule, never the other way around.
I never look out for easy games, I need the challenge factor to love any game at all.
EVE online has brought all the best and worse I ever wanted from any game. You see, I love the sense of wonder, the beauty of this game. It is by far one of the best games I have ever played both in complexity and beauty. Yet, I acknowledge this is not a good game for me.
I don’t have time to play like PVP players do. I don’t have the desire to be confronted by players who have prepared themselves to exploit people who came into this game only for the sense of wonder. I despise this predatory atitude, and forever lament the fact that the developers show no desire to make this a good game for all of us.
I love the complexities, the absurd scope of this game. Yet, when I see how much it rewards predation and abuse from players who think it’s “part of the game” to just go out and blow up some newbies ships… That will forever sound to me like a bad game, developed by people who doesn’t truly care about their actual fan base and player demographic, and think it is quite alright for people to just be stupid and blow other people up, thus ruining their fun and their desire to ever play this game again.
Don’t ever BS me about how there are dangers inside this or that activity. If any activity is offered to all players, then it should have the option both for those who are willing and prepared for PVP, as much as those who just want to play at their leisure, PVEing for fun as I do.
I love the idea that people who have been playing this game for much longer than me have so much understanding and experience. I love the fact that there’s so much content and broadness for all to enjoy, but the fact that players who aren’t interested in engaging other players AT ALL are so forced to be blown up and lose hours of game play for the sake of someone that think it quite an accomplishment to blow those who have just no way or manner to defend themselves.
I’ll not play this game anymore. After so many hours of drooling over environments, ship designs, and the sheer complexities of this game, I just can’t take it anymore. After taking all measure of caution to explore and have fun in this game, I just can’t endure the inequality of it anymore.
I hope all fans of this game keep on having a real good time, despite the fact that it is not an universal game, not a forgiving game, not even a game for all…
This is not a game for me, no matter how much I adore and love how much it feels perfect. As long as there’s no separation from PVP and PVE, I’ll forever hold this HATE/LOVE relationship with it, and prefer so much to keep away from it as much as possible.
I just don’t have the time to invest in a game that doesn’t reward my effort and play style.
Have fun y’all… I’m out.
