Just like I said, I quit in 2009 because of how the games learning curve was completely unfriendly to new people. Yeah it’s a great game I thoroughly enjoy every aspect of it. what i do not enjoy it how the only way that it offers a season MMO player who wants to enjoy just a small amount PVE play before I start any pvp, it’s not about me not understanding the mechanics, hell learning cookie cutter specs and how specific class work along with an open range of difference to learn, just so happens to be what I love about MMO’s. What I do not love, is the fact that I can be sitting in a high sec, minding my own business (and it’s not like I ever went to someone else and blown them up when they were doing the same) running my own mission and have some class bully run up and blow me up because they think its funny, then give the excuses that I was just firing fireworks at you and that this is me teaching you by destroying everything that you worked at for the last 2 weeks.

So yeah if that’s the only way a person can say is how other players are supposed to learn how to play this game, then why would I or anyone I know ever want to play. I mean come on, my brothers playing this game to. We both quit that long ago, I now have a lot of guild buddies who are playing rift and gw2, why would I ever try to convert them to this game if all they have to look forward to is the people who have been playing since the beginning, just wants to dump on all the newbies. And you can sit there and tell me that I haven’t read enough, watch enough videos, or any other BS about how I can just figure this game out enough to defend myself because all I feel like is a boy with a stick fighting off a pack of a pack of wolfs with no better reason than, you look like you’d be fun to screw with.

And fyi, the people in game I am talking about, if you ever want to give them a piece of your mind is as follows.

Eve basically lives and dies on allowing as much freedom of interaction between players as is reasonably feasible.

That's the product that they are really selling here.

Disliking that level of freedom is like eating a steak and disliking that there's beef in it. If you don't love that you (and others) have that freedom, then at a fundamental level, the game really is not for you.

I'm stealing this from you. You just summed up everyone who plays EVE while not liking...EVE.

Ill offer a non-troll response (although its pretty difficult not to lol)....


You need to join a corp willing to show you the ropes man. There are a TON of corps out there recruiting the fresh blood of eve and if you put a little effort into it, you might actually make some great friends in the process.

You can totally play this game solo if that's your style. But you better a damn good gamer.

Just scan the recruitment thread and apply to a high sec newbie friendly corp to start out.

Completely non troll response as well.

Join my corp. ROC Academy. We are extremely noob friendly, we play in lowsec on an almost daily basis(with a full T1 ship reimbursement program), and we encourage almost all aspects of the game. We also own our own wormhole if that interests you.

Best example of a non-idiotic highsec corp I have seen.

I'm trying to figure out how you can walk onto an eve forum, make a thread insulting its players and expect a positive response...

Eve IS unforgiving. That's why people play it.

If EVE were one of those "hold your hand and make sure you always get a trophy" games, I'd have quit long ago...

Why would you be insulted over what he said? There is a large sub-set of people within Eve who love the tears of others, having fun at their expense is part of the fun of Eve for me.

Interestingly, I know this is a sweeping generalisation, but most of the people in this sub-set seem to be amazingly thin-skinned at anything they see as an insult...

When the going gets tough the Gankers get their CSM rep to change mechanics in their favour.

I don't understand why people like this make posts. Just don't play the game if you don't like it. I don't like many games, yet I don't go posting on their forums my reasons.

I plan on living forever.......so far, so good.

Hi, dude! It isn't necessary to compare EVE to any other MMO! Look for friends and you will be happy :)
