Anybody please tell me, how to play this game without constantly getting harassed by idiotic players.....


On TQ: you're not in control of me. You will NEVER be in control of me. I will shoot you if I so desire.

On SiSi: find any system you want except for the main testing one and you'll be 99% safer there as no ones going to come looking for you. Me included.


Play on SiSi if you want to 'control' your environment.

And wood ships,

And ships that sail the sea

You're exactly wrong. The lack of stickiness is the problem.

Most games don't burn out, they are replaced by competition. Eve has given Sci-Fi MMOs a bad name so it's been impossible to fund one to date. I predict that eventually a Scfi-Fi game will come along that is actually fun, and Eve will lose most of their customer base and the Sci-Fi genre in general will grow significantly.

If it's a female corpse send it to me, in the end I hope I'll be able to build some "Frenkeinsteinette" with perfect behaviour and forms !!

…and yet, the stickiness is remarkable among those who learn to play the game and create their own content. Tricking people to stay by pulling on completely different strings will not help them discover (or enjoy) this part of the game.

More accurately, they fail to displace the existing competition because they don't offer anything new, so people abandon them and go back to what already works. So copying that only leads to the same end.

Lol No. What's given sci-fi MMOs a bad name is that, apart from SWG, they are were all awful reskins of your standard fantasy grindfests, occasionally propped up by some poorly-harnessed IP. Funding them hasn't been a problem. Keeping them interesting and different enough from what people are already playing has.

Put up a lemonade stand and you too can make a profit. Won't be very much, but you'll be making a profit. You won't be able to fund any new projects, but you'll be making a profit. You won't be able to go public, but you'll be making a profit.

If EvE cnages to be WoW in space,

The assumption that Eve needs to become like WoW in order to change for the better is incorrect. Eve does not need to be WoW to be better. It does not be to be My Little Pony to be fairer. CCP is capable of making Eve both unique and fun, and keep the hardcore space combat in the game all at the same time if they put themselves to the task.

EvE is competing for the playerbase looking for a ruthless sandbox game,

More fool them. There are 21 Million accounts in the MMO. I'll take the other 20.7 Million if they don't want them.


Fager wrote:
So now tell me again how ignoring the playerbase EvE pretty much got monopoly on (sandbox) in this age and trying to change it to compete with the market that no other publisher has succeded in since WoW is a good idea?

Monopoly? Heh.

BTW, sandboxes are what programmers use to build and babies use as a toilet. I can't possibly see how the word "sandbox" applies to Eve.

Regards, a EvE player who has played on and of and always comes back since 2003 - Because EvE is unfair, up to the player to make sure he/shes on the good side of the unfair line.


If it's unfair, then by definition it isn't up to the player.

You have to be relatively intelligent to realize how stupid you really are!”
