What is EVE Online?

EVE is a massive multiplayer online game (MMOG) set in a science-fiction based, persistent world. Players take the role of spaceship pilots seeking fame, fortune, and adventure in a huge, complex, exciting, and sometimes hostile galaxy.

There are a few things that make it very different to other MMO's
1. It is in space and not some RPG style fantasy world.
2. To advance your character, skills are trained. They will continue to train till it is completed if you are online or not.
3. Everyone is on one server (thats over 22,000 players on one server. They are upgrading the entire server cluster in Feb)
4. It is made by a small icelandic company called CCP, not a big American company, therefore CCP listens and interacts with its customers.

"OMG this game is so much better then WoW or EQ, and I dont have to even play it all the time to get good at it, damn this game is cool."

Hey man, have you seen all the awards eve online got?

Spatial MMORPG. Not many chicks dig it.

A nice attempt at a Space themed MMORPG which was going well until it was discovered that the most of the developers were members of the most powerful clan (Band Of Brothers) and were helping them with inside knowledge to give them the upper hand.

Poor graphics, boring point and click interface (you can't actually manually fly the ships in combat) and hours of grinding needed to actually get anywhere.

Players fall into 4 broad categories

1- Hardcore - Spend all their time at their keyboards picking on newbies, sunlight will kill these people if they ever step outside

2- Farmers- Clans that mine repetively to sell ingame money online for real money

3- Drama queens - Like Voogru, who act as quasi-game police hunting farmers (because they desperately want to be admins but no amount of their kissing CCP's arse ever helps)

4- Triallers - those who play the 2 week free trial and realise what epic fail it is and do something more productive with their time

All in all, absolute fail, a game that desperately wishes it was Elite (an old Atari ST,Amiga game) online, played long term by sad lonely people whom one day will wake up and realise it is all just a load of pixels and what have I done with my life?

add to that the no-none can ever be certain that the developers are still cheating makes for a game best avoided.
prima "OMG Eve online is awesome"

secunda "but developers play this and cheat"

prima "OMG UR so gay, EVE is the shit"

secunda "LOL irony"
