Hello curious readers !

Apologies for my bad English, but ill try my best.

Myself im playing this game for more then 12years, and i have always been respectfull to other players in pvp or newer players.

What i have to say is that, this game isn't anymore what it always promised to be, the once open world is now crumbling beneath your feet.

The changing of EvE =

-Once upon a time there was this awesome vast world where you had to work hard when you started, like my Ibis mining 3k isk worth of veldspar a hour, and starting from 0 skillpoints.
After some years it suddenly changed with people getting 800k skill points to assign when they started.

-Plex arrived a while after, buy the skills with the best implants and buy the biggest ship out there ( imagine 2 alliances fighting eachother, 1 alliance that plays the normal way, and 1 alliance that buys 5k of plexes ) , i must confess that i buyed some aswell but Plex should never have been available in the first place, i had to buy some to keep up with others. ( Good financial move CCP for a while atleast )

-From then on i saw a huge number of oldschoolers dropping the game, it became P2W.

-60k+ online members on the average Sunday once upon a time, then dropped to 40k.

-We also saw Aurum somewhere in between.

-Then the much debated isk for buying skillpoints.

And now soon The Alpha clone, people playing for free, welcome CoD kids, or welcome free scouts, lets make a dozen free chars to scout. ( them getting paid 5m each )

-And omg as last, i do not mind the dissapearance of IGB, nostalgic it was yes, obsolete yes, but i very strongly condemn, and i must repeat condemn that you will rule out very awesome game services like EOH Poker and possibly EvE-Radio.
EOH poker and EvE-Radio have been around for like 10 years, i tend to use their service alot, and their not known for meta isk transfers, its a shame if they would have to disappear.

Numbers keep dropping, 40k+ is done for a while 30k+ now, they will go up with a semi free to play version of the game "Alpha clone" ( A trick to show good numbers )

Whats the next step ?

EvE free to play game in the browser ??

My conclusion is that the game over the past years is losing its charm, its turning into a cheap to buy basket game.
Where in the past the game had prestige, a quality game that seemed to be exceptional against the others.

It can be turned around, alot of people that left played this game for its quality not quantity and greed.


-This post will be locked or ending up somewhere in the trashcan not been taken seriously.
-EvE once a power to be withnessed in the mmo world is now turning into a cheap if not free basket game.
-Sry for my bad English
-If you have money for a monument, you sure have some for the game its future quality wise gameplay, but GJ on the servers and software thats given.
-Do not erase my name on the monument after this complaining post.
-Il stick around, but when the ingame fun drop to much il leave ( no you cannot have my stuff )

Shouts out to my fellow EvE pilots, lets hope they will hear us ! o\

Make the game great again pls !!

Sadly, this thread will be locked too as CCP has the ISDs on full damage control, locking any negative threads so the incoming F2P players won't see them.


There's a million angry citizens looking down their me.

Thanks for the supportive words Mech, you have been a great guy to have played with for the last 5+ years for me. I'm proud of what EOH accomplished and very proud to have been a part of it.

All the love brother!

So eve is bad because you can't gamble anymore? Go gamble on one of those gambling websites if you like, they're happy to take your real life money. Also the IGB was a dinosaur and probably 0.05% of people used it these days.
