Star Citizen vs Eve Online...The Movie

Well, maybe not a "movie" but a commentary I found on youtube.

I agree with some points but not with all. In short, I really don't think EVE has anything to worry about with SC.



PS. I don't believe "the Eve community is resistant to change without there being major backlash." If anything, the EVE community is resistant to BAD "change" (*cough* Incarna *cough*).

We all still want WIS...but not a half assed job rushed out the door just to meet a deadline. Then telling us that staring at a static door instead of your ship's hangar is a good thing, while devs sing the "greed is good" theme song.

Star Citizen looked OK ...

until "instanced"

One of the bitter points of a good bittervet is the realisation that all those SP don't really do much, and that the newbie is having much more fun with what little he has. - Tippia

Its not a fair fight

For a start, EvE online exists

Everything I have seen from star citizen is some guy walking around in a hangar then showing off a bed in a spaceship.

Don't get me wrong, I've got nothing against SC, in fact I think I pledged enough to get the hangar module and alpha access, but comparing EVE and SC is like asking which is better – sandwiches or fireworks?

...and complaining that the bed looked too small, if it's the video I'm thinking of.

I checked out SC because of the hype, but 3 things made me go 'mm prolly not'

1) Instancing and multiple servers

One of the things that has kept me in eve is this very reason. I enjoy playing with people from all over the world, and if a friend wants to join I don't have to have this conversation 'Dude you need to join the jita server... no not amarr, jita... yea delete your char and remake it on jita.'

2) The economy

Eve's is player controlled with a few exceptions... SC's will be mostly npc controlled...

3) The pvp slider and the 'lack of loot' (I have been told this is changed)

The idea that I can avoid pvp by setting a slider to 0 sounds fun.. but also sounds boring as hell. One of the big things I love about eve is I can shoot anyone anywhere (though usually I get shot but whos fact checking?)

There are others but thouse were the big three

And now no longer an all 'girl' thread, yay!

OMG Comet Mining idea!!! Comet Mining!

Eve For life.

Imagine meeting someone at the bar for the frst time and you talk about Eve and the things that you both have done and the things you have seen. Then you realise that you are on different servers and all then you can say is "Oh"

With the single shard you know that somewhere out there is the person you're talking to. In fact out there in New Eden I know that you're out there to get me.

And that is why Eve has grown and developed by the players. With the multi-shard games the players are more or less scripted along with new areas and new levels to keep them going. In Eve it's not the environment it's the other players. We've stil essentially have the same game as we had half a dozen years ago because we're not led through by noses to interact with new content.

It's not the game, it's the players in the game which makes Eve so appealing and unless any other firm can make an MMO which is as free format as Eve, one shard and allow such in-game bitterness to develop then no-one is going to get close.

Usually I like EVE graphics above all, but SC's are more appealing - I can actually see the details. Since EVE has moved to ever darker models I can't see hardly anything in space. If it wasn't for the Overview periscope nothing would get done.

The difference between the two is that EVE is real and SC is not. Everyone who bought into it got scammed.

I'm interested to see how star citizen turns out. It looks a lot more modern and probably has more potential than eve.

I love the concept of eve but it has been getting increasingly boring for me over the years. I don't know if CCP lack innovative and brilliant staff or just lack the money but i don't think they are doing a good enough job with eve.

Star Citizen is a multi-year pyramid scheme under the guise of a perfect game.

We'll have to take your word on that, as I hear that SC has been developed in association with goonswarm.

On the other hand, if you want to actually make a difference, you never have to worry about "timer is at 4:30 in the morning" ....yeah, good luck with that, I'm sleeping.

You make a valid point, good Sir or Madam.

Two entirely different types of games. I don't even know why people want to compare them.
