First of all, the point of this thread:

In hopes of an EVE executive reads this, and completely changes the entire game to the way it is supposed to be. (lol)
Or for the community to read and agree with, and riot in the streets in the demand of eve revolution.

When the game first starts up,

I was a person! I fully expected this game to be an FPS mixed with the spaceship command elements. After all, why wouldn't I?

Most of you eve-lovers will stop reading right here, I know. (if you even clicked on this post)

It was a completely subjective experience, but that colossal let down hit me hard. Not being able to exit my ship? Explore planets? Shoot people in the face??

I honestly had no clue that this wasn't a feature until well after I subscribed. (again, my own fault)

My excuse:
I thought I needed exploration/transporter ships to land on planets! so I was looking for them. And the quests to begin with were all ship-related, by the time my trial was up I just thought I hadn't leveled up fast enough to get to the fun stuff. (Hours and Hours of tutorial/training anyone?)

Ok I swallowed that pill.
I'm paying real money just to fly around in spaceships.

These ships seemed really interesting, with all the modules and slots and skills.
So OK.
I'm going to have so much fun shooting stuff down! *(I thought)*

My first encounters with enemy forces:
The music picks up, increasingly climatic.
Excitement coursing through my veins.
All these thoughts running through my head:

What kind of ship will attack me?
Will it fast? slow?

A battle-intended ship, or a transport?
A shuttle?

Will it have lasers? projectiles?
Will it have big guns? and little guns?

Which guns hurt my ship the most?
Which guns do I shoot out first?

Is the ship fast? do I need to completely disable it's engines?
Ok yeah I'll shoot at them.

Is the ship carrying cargo? Projectile ammunition? (exlosives?)
Where is the ships cargohold?

Do i want the ship to explode? OK
I'll shoot through his hull, directed at his missile bay. BOOOOM.

I want some of it's weapons, and electronics.

Ok,I'll disable it instead. Disable the shield. Shoot out the engines. Weaken and EMP the weapons systems.
Then I will send in my men or drones to finish off the survivors, and salvage some of the good stuff.

Is my mission a bounty hunt? for the enemy captain perhaps?

Disable shields, and target the cockpit!
Do everything it takes to blow him up, and warp out of there fast.

Does the enemy want to disable me???
Divert power to shields. (less engine, less weapons)

Gotta get outta here???
Divert power to engines. (less shields, less weapons)

enemy shows a window of weakness? (eg. he diverted power to engines so he could try to run)
Divert power to weapons. blow him away before he gets away. .

For god's sake target that turret blasting us!


Divert power to something!!!s

Able to do a SINGLE thing in this game that I had expected?


For god's sake, make this game an FPS.
Cross-platform on Xbox or something.

People on earth (xbox), relying on the ships in space (computers) for their supplies, trade, and transport.

Or stay PC just whatever it takes OMG.

For Zues's sake, make us able to target strategic structural points on the enemies ship.. -.-
Combat is so boring, there is LITTLE strategy.

(there is *some*, but it's not 'REAL TIME')

PVP needs this. It needs more than 'oh enable all these modules from the start of battle, and use this weapon for range or this weapon for close combat'

It needs REAL TIME, updating decisions. 'oh the enemy knows that I have most of my power diverted to weapons, and he's diverted power to shields and engines hoping to escape?'

I'll divert all power to weapons and engines, completely disabling my shield for a moment, match his speed and blow him away (knowing that my enemy is not attacking, instead running)

That's an example, but there would be many more. .

Anyway this thread has to be VERY hard to read, as it's basically ramblings. (sorry to all who saw this haha)

I didn't put any time into this, and didn't re-read or edit or spellcheck.

it's more of a 'need to vent' situation that anything

The game would ROCK, if only I had Geass

Someday perhaps it will expand to stations but for now the game is what it is.
Maybe WIS will turn FPS but the space bit will never change or it shouldn't.

tl;dr... I expected this game to be like the now dead Star Trek Online game... I won't return until it is just like it.

Oh man, you was really expecting to see a FPS gameplay features in EVE from long time ago?

And sorry but you are so wrong if you think that the EVE´s pvp is not real-time.

[b][i]Immortality is only a word. All that exists can die. Every living thing has a weapon against which it has no defense. Time. Disease. Iron. Guilt.

When i first started, i wanted to see actual missiles. i waited, and now look how beautiful they are. (omg PRETTY!)

Have you not read all the blogs and stuff? They plan on doing something, it is just that it will take TIME to do something like they plan to do.

So when they do start up out of ship sites will you hear about it and join back up? This shows that you are looking for what you want NOW instead of sticking with it and watching this new feature come in. No you want it now, **** time.

Next, you will see me make a thread called "Why I don't care about you not re-suscribing"

Soon; it is a terrible word because it implies so much, but nothing is as important and recognizing that to enjoy what is coming "soon" one must be patient and not give up on a game with 10 years of brilliant history.

Leave if you want, but when that feature comes, I will laugh at all the people like you who ditched out because it wasnt there, and then you will join back up only to realize all the SP you missed out on training will not be given to you.

tl;dr, no one cares about you, your wants, or your needs.

I don't attack other people's ideas.

Nor do I intentionally put other people down.

I don't make jokes at other peoples expenses.

I don't smoke/drink. I don't drink coffee/soda.

I don't drink city water. I drink and shower and brush with only distilled water.

I haven't eaten at a restaurant in years.
I eat a strict paleo diet (without the nuts or seeds).

I do all these things, and I used to be just like you people. Smoking, drinking soda, subjecting my body to atrophy.
I quit soda. I quit smoking. I quit eating at mcdonalds.

Basically, I'm better than you. I'm much more advanced, and easier to adapt.

I have a calm, level mind.

I don't, however, have good grammar skills.
Or form when writing a rant.

(what is the proper ranting form?)

Anyway the point:

Stuff it.

Just really think about what kind of person you are, compared to me, while you are making comments like that.

Really think.
