Eve Online, is it any good? - Page 2

post #11 of 20
EVE Online is by far the best mmo on the market, but the skill curve is huge and it takes a while to figure out what is going on. It is NOT a fun game to solo in, I recommend you take some time, find a corp that is up to your liking and join them if you want to have fun, otherwise you might not get enjoy the game. EVE is meant to be played socially.

EVE is good. The people are fierce and CCP milks all the time out of you that they can, but it's a neat game to play.

I find that it gets old rather quickly, but there really is a lot to do. You can become a manufacturing mogul, a mission runner... if you play for awhile, you can even integrate yourself into one of the massive coalition blocs.

I hear that that's when things get really fun biggrin.gif

The short answer to all your questions are:
1. space
2. depends on how much time you put in (there isn't really a "fully geared" as there are too many different ways to equip each ship. Also since they change they way skills are learned its not as hard as it was imo)
3. I doubt it, the EVE community is a pretty dedicated and hardcore community and CCP does a pretty good job of trying to keep them happy. IMO they do a better job of listening to what players like/dislike than any other MMO.

As the poster above me said, there really is no such thing as fully geared in eve. It will take 2 weeks to a month to be able to train for a basic, but effective, pvp position known as a tackler, for solo pvp (which honestly is pretty rare, EVE is also about MASSIVE pvp battles) it would take a few months of training.

The beauty of eve is that there really isn't any end game goal, you find ship type and setup you like and you train for it, but standard cheap ships and equipment can be extremely effective in pvp.

EVE is the only MMO besides WOW to continuously grow year after year, I believe there are more people playing EVE today than there ever has been. It'll be around for another decade at least.

Yeah, EvE usually dries up pretty fast for people with no in-game friends.

I've been playing for years; it's not a game for everyone that's for sure. (but that's also what's good about it ... WoW playing, ragequitting, emo-having 13 year olds don't last long biggrin.gif)
