The thing that EvE players seem to tout is the PvP oriented community gameplay. Well guess what: Being a community PvP oriented game is not exclusive to EvE. There are plenty of games that put you right into the community PvP action contrary to just wasting time and never seeing any action.
The thing that makes eve different than any other MMO is the fact that it's a sandbox. Player corporations and the friends / rivals they make are what make the game what it is. If all you do is do missions all day, it's no wonder you think World of PVE is a better MMO.
