EVE Online after 9 years is... Disappointing.

The Sandbox is a virtual world where you as a player create your own content.

Having played EvE for many years on many chars I think the most time ive been away is about 3-4 months max.

I enjoy the content it provides and all the updates and patches. There are still many things I haven't tried in EvE and there is still so much for me to learn.

When I first started I read up a lot on what to expect and what path I would like to choose. I have been on many paths with many friends and I have also spent a lot of time on my own just flying through space doing my own thing.

Ive seen a lot of chars go there own separate way and leave EvE or try something different. I find each day refreshing on what I can do. Yes I have had days when im bored and thing hmm is this is all its cracked up to be but then I change and try something else. When im bored of that I go back to doing what im good at.

Im not criticizing the OP but I think you either have had enough or your should try something new. CCP gave us this box and we have created pretty much 90% of what happens.

CCP deserve a huge round of applause for making this game what it is and each and every player that has come and gone needs a big clap too. Except that creepy guy who keeps mailing me about my char the freak Shocked

As a Solo Pvp'er and EvE enthusiast, I, in my opinion disagree with OP argument (If there was one).

Firstly, you can play solo. Sure I may never run my own hub or take space but I can and will certainly play my part in shaping it, the "butterfly effect" comes to mind.

We are merely ants partaking in fest pool of social activity, what you achieve with in that time is only limited to what you are socially capable of.

Secondly, the OP was a lot about nothing. Most people give up reading after the first paragraph since there was no constructive criticism. Don't like something? Then don't just say, give a solution.

The real reason most people dont like it is.... Its WAY too much like real life. Thats it. Nothing else. You have to figure things out and deal with people you like, dont like, tolerate, and do things on your own just like life. Most people dont want a real world simulator set in space. As real life sucks solo too. Its hard and most people dont do hard at all. They want a "game" to escape real life. Mostly cuz theyre real lives suck. For some this allows them to vent their frustrations by shooting miners and harvesting tears, for others its space mafia online and for still others its building a lil empire for themselves somewhere in the stars.

And CCP does nothing BUT force people to interact, most often explosively with cannon fire and pew pew lazors.


Playing EVE activly often feels like having a 2nd life with a very boring job (ISK grinding). I have several active EVE accounts, but i spend most of my gaming time with other games because after working / studying im often too exhausted for Excel Online.

I would love features like the dojo ... fun stuff that you can do without hours of preparation and waiting time. But if you suggest features like this most EVE players are like "ERMAGERD IT BREAKS SANDBOX. ITS NOT TEDIOUS, SO IT WOULDNT FIT INTO EVE"

Well, what's stopping CCP from creating a few sandcastles for players to knock over when they enter the game.
