Merry Christmas to all and i hope you had a nice weekend close to your family if that was the case, if not i hope you enjoyed the holiday the best that you could.
I started played EVE last Thursday, and today i thought that this game has been online since 2003, it’s really impressive and it has been around for a very long time, on it’s own it’s quite an achievement, the community seems to be active and i bet that some if not many of you have been around for a long time now.
I got to think if I’m too late for the party, i mean i don’t know the dev team apart from their name CCP or their plans for the game going forward, do they plan to introduce new zones, things to do, even new systems?
I have read a post on the internet and one on these forums dated from last year or something, talking about and comparing EVE to Elite Dangerous, i own Elite for a long time, it had a huge sale, i never touched it, I’m not saying that the game is bad, not at all i just get overwhelmed by space games like that or even like EVE, maybe ne day i will try Elite Dangerous but for now i’m taking my time with EVE.
The topic was discussing that the universe or world in EVE is way smaller than the one in Elite, and that the people here in EVE are stuck on the same universe for years and years now, i don’t know if this is a good or bad thing, i am a new player and to me the universe in EVE seems huge, also i think it’s cool that Elite has a huge world but honestly also a huge system or world can be super boring if it doesn’t have much life to it or activity.
I also see people on some videos comparing EVE online with Star Citizen, again i am new to these space games or huge space games, but i can’t compare these 2 games in more ways than one they feel different but if i had to pick i would go with Eve just for the fact that it’s a fully flushed out game and not one that has been in development since 2011, but to each their own i guess.
I think that EVE, being around since 2003 and building a world, a community of it’s own has a tremendous credit…i never played EVE before last Thursday but i always heard the name growing up, at school at university, while hanging out with friends, websites talking about the best space games etc…to me all of this is a big achievement on it’s own.
I just hope I’m not late to the party.
