Yes there is a lot of text please just read .I started playing eve with a bunch of m8’s in 2003,
and CCP promised a living breathing universe, that was controlled and guided by players with
certain aspects controlled by ccp to keep the balance and a echo of real life.
It took a while and the first few years were a bit shaky,
but there was a glimmer of a seed that could grow into a game
that would surpass every multiplayer game that had ever existed.
In eve it was hard work but they had a system of law that controlled empire ,
where the players that just wanted to trade and mission run worked fine,
Eve was lacking a few fundamentals like ,
the promise of players meeting in stations and having a beer , chatting ,
and gambling there hard earned isk, or ships on games of chance, Just like the real world.
And as time went by, over a decade, these options became available by 3rd partys.
And these partys fleshed out the eve universe , that CCP had abandoned or just lost hope in.
But due to corruption and rl money laundering these sites were shut down, without any sort of CCP intervention to fill in the gap that they had left.
And thats it, CCP had a game that has a potential to become the greatest game ever, Yet two thirds of there player base is gone now due to there lack of foresight and there lying about there original game idea,
eve is now a care bear paradise , there is no longer a reason to work hard or play hard as its all on a plate for the snowflake generation,
if you have Real life money you can just buy it all , you will lack the skill to use it, and you will lose it, but thanks to CCP just buy it and start again .
Eve has become a game that is pointless. Such a wasted opportunity of a awesome game ,
As it is you can just use a bot and ccp somehow ignores these things.
RL trading is rife and ccp seem to not know of a site called EBAY very strange Eh ?
EVE a game that lost its way, due to the lack of insight of CCP. and listening to the bitchers, CCP you sacrificed a game that would have been awesome.
And a addendum the whole idea of Freighters being destroyed by 6 ships in the middle of empire (0.5) is stupid, is like saying 5 vespas, (a 125 cc moped ) killing a 300 thousand dollar truck on the main highway while the police cant find first gear.
Stupid mechanic that is aimed to satisfy the wanna be pirates that are on alphas.
Decisions like this are killing the eve universe. and no i have never lost a freighter , I just see the mechanic is so wrong.
