It is well known that Eve Online’s community is regarded by the wider gaming community as one of the most toxic experiences you can experience in an MMO environment.
Lets not mess around, nobody cares how ‘hard core’ eve is supposed to be. Every single one of you knows this can be an extremely unpleasant experience. Everything from mass blackmail to threats of death.
Eve has stopped being about spreadsheets to some people… becoming something much worse in the process. This place is universally known as a “cess pit” of human interaction.
Are the rest of gaming community really all “care bears who should go back to world of warcraft?” … or do we need to lighten up a little.
Plenty of threads around here discussing dropping player count, I felt this needed its own however.
Can you really discount this as a potential reason for dropping player numbers?
