The biggest load of nonsense I've ever read


(Auto-da-fe) #1

Some of the people complaining in this thread have valid points about the fact that they don’t feel safe. Simple fact of the matter is, that you’re not suppose to feel safe in New Eden.

Eve is not a game for the faint hearted. It’s a game that will chew you up and spit you out in the blink of an eye if you even think about letting your guard down or becoming complacent.

While every other MMO starts off with an intro that tells you you’re going to be the savior of the realm, holds your hand, protects you, nurtures your development and ultimately guides you to your destiny as a hero along with several other million players who’ve had the exact same experience, EVE assaults you from the second you begin to play after you create a character, spitting you out into a universe that under the surface, is so complex that it’s enough to make your head explode.

The entire design is based around being harsh, vicious, relentless, hostile and cold. It’s about action and reaction, and the story that unfolds as you experience these two things.

True, we’re working hard to lower the bar of entry so that more players can enjoy EVE and can get into the game. Our NPE (New Player Experience) is challenging, and we’re trying to improve it to better prepare rookies for what lies out there, but when you start to play eve, you’ll always start out as the little fish in the big pond.

The only way to grow is to voraciously consume what’s around you, and its your choice whether that happens to be New Eden’s abundant natural resources, or the other people who’re also fighting their way to the top.

EVE is a playing experience like no other, where every action or reaction resonates through a single universe and is felt by players from all corners of the word. There are no shards here, no mirror universes, no instances and very few rules. If you stumble across something valuable, then chances are someone else already knows where you are, or is working their way toward you and you better be prepared to fight for what you’ve discovered.

EVE will test you from the outset, from the very second you undock and glimpse the stars, and will take pleasure from sorting those who can survive from those who’d rather curl up and perish.

EVE will let you fight until you collapse, then let you struggle to your feet, exhausted from the effort. Then when you can see the light at the end of the tunnel it’ll kick you flat on your ass in the mud again and ask you why you deserve to be standing. It’ll test you against every other individual playing at some point or another, and it’ll ask for answers.

Give it an answer and maybe it’ll let you up again, long enough to gather your thoughts. After a few more steps you’re on the ground again and it’s asking more questions.

EVE is designed to be harsh, it’s designed to be challenging, and it’s designed to be so deep and complex that it should fascinate and terrify you at the same time.

Corporation, Alliances and coalitions of tens of thousands have risen and fallen on these basic principles, and every one of those thousands of people has their own unique story to tell about how it affected them and what they experienced.

That’s the beauty of EVE. Action and reaction. Emergence.

Welcome to the most frightening virtual playground you’ll ever experience.

I dearly wish that I had read that nearly 10 years ago when I first took up EVE Online … because That is the craziest bunch of absolute nonsense that I have ever read in my life!!! I don’t even think its possible to convey how stupid and unbelievable that series of statements is!!!

Instead of quieting printing that, on some back page of your cluttered forums, WHY NOT SAY THAT IN AN EVE ONLINE ADVERTISEMENT???

WHY NOT PUT THIS IN THE OPENING OF EVE ONLINE WHEN YOU FIRST START THE GAME??? Oh yeah, … that’s right … because that would mean removing the opening sequence that contradicts every thing this packet of outright deception states!!! Oh… every other MMO tells you that you’re the hero … Oh … and EVE Online only tells you that you’re a God!!!

You piss down my back and I’m going to turn around and punch you in the face!
TAKE THAT!!!

Feel free to close, and remove this thread, I’m sure you’re afraid of being called out for your lies and deception and treating consumers like fools.

EDIT/ADD:
Here is a link to the video Intro that was used when I started playing:

As an capsuleer, you are an immortal being, above most laws that normal people live by, free to do pretty much whatever you like.

The thing is, so are other capsuleers.

You are a god among other gods, all trying to be better than the others.

Guessing that was written before “asset safety”.

Ignorantia juris non excusat

"ignorance of the law excuses not’

You mean like this:

You mean like in the tutorial when your FC tells you to shoot at this thing, then warps the fleet away leaving you to die in an explosion?

Try walking into the wrong level area in any MMO, try soloing a World boss, try entering a Raid Dungeon without a Raid group, see how far your hero status gets you. Characters die in other MMO’s too.

I dunno about you, but if every time I died in an explosion I came back to life a few seconds later, I would feel pretty Godlike.

i started playing eve in 2007 and I knew how it was and what it was BEFORE I downloaded it the 1st time.

If you didn’t do some basic homework before getting involved in a game … In the INFORMATION AGE where things are a simple Google search away, that’s your own damned fault.

Wonderful!
Thank you for this. This bunch of absurd from CCP Falcon is something I was needed.

And just to think all this demagogy from CCP is simply to cover and hide the bussines of group of players. The bussiness on outnumbered people slaving to them on “great” null-sec and fulfilling their wallets by ISKs through taxes which they succesfully RMT then.

This and other quotes from neighbour thread of this forum I will gather together and simply put into Wikipedia page about EVE Online.
You guys yourself give us such a perfect material. Thank you.

Show us on the doll where the nasty EVE people touched you?

Or to put it another way, who blew up your ship and made you so sad?

But which came first? An capsuleer, or a egg?


(Galaxy Pig) #11

Ha! These are pretty good tears.

As for putting Falcon’s words in an advertisement, I like the idea! Would certainly attract more players like myself.


(Rosov Aulmais) #12

You missed the point: laughing at (and sometimes deliberately inciting) nonsense is part of fun and satisfaction of EVE.


(ISD Chanisa Nemes) #13

This is not a constructive thread. I will now be closing it.
