I have been looking at batreps for fleet engagements and the metrics are all over the place; ISK, ship loss ratios, who got the salvage,post battle forum smack talk, # of pilots who showed up, the list goes on.

For myself, I like to learn something about the game world; even if it costs me a ship, if I learn a new trick or figure something out then I win. !?!? wait a minute, didn't I loose? IDK what is winning in Eve to you?

Winning is when you find something that makes you want to log in and have fun.

That's a difficult one. To me it's when I finally stop playing for good, then I've won.

Perhaps a less :bittervet: answer would be "when you're comfortable with what you're doing, enjoy it and stop worrying about silly numerical goals like isk or SP and start pursuing more personal goals, knowing you'll succeed".

When one make no differences between game world and reality.

And, yes, this can go horribly wrong so do not do this at home.

Loss is meaningful. Therefore is the loss of meaning likewise meaningful. It is the source of all trolling.

You sir won something far more important than eve.

For me winning at eve is about the little goals. Go out on a roam, come back without losing my pod - win!

if your asking if the land of RP which is known as provi or better know as CVA has won EvE? lets stick to one battle at a time. from what i hear you have a good one coming very soon.

Winning Eve is when you no longer log in to play, and can still dictate what large numbers of Eve players do.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Most of Prov-bloc is not RP. I am, just because I like to spout strange religious dogma in local. But for most pilots it is a much smaller part of their profile. (Well admitted profile, I think all Eve characters are quite different from the people that play them.)

As for battles; I was reading over the results of G-5EN2, and tbh I'm not sure who won?! The talk on our forums is mostly about what we could do better next time. I couldnt make that fleet and so its actually been kind of tough figuring out how it went.

I win every time I make a sale on the market.
Every time I make it through low sec camps without getting blown up.
Every time I escort my alt through null with no problems.
Every time I 100% a scanning location.
Every time I make a discovery of sorts about how I should play better.
etc

Just the little things that make me happy when I play EVE are wins in my book.

Well first an alien comes, and once you kill it,

"GAME OVER" appears on your screen.

Then you can't play before that unless you saved it before the alien, so u have to just post on forums.

You don't 'win' in EVE. You win at plaing EVE.

If you're having a good time, you're winning at playing EVE. If you're not having fun, best you re-assess what yo're doing, and why.

Tell someone you love them today, because life is short. But scream it at them in Esperanto, because life is also terrifying and confusing.

Winning at EvE? Get some tech moons, print ISK, go into RMT.

I win every day... sometimes because I make vast quantities of ISK... and sometimes because I just know when to walk away and say "fakkit, I'll be back later".

Translation for the paduwans... "Do, or do not. The is no try".

The thing about eve is it's just a treed mill. One day even goonswarm will no longer be there after being replaced by some other yet to be named alliance; death is the only assured inevitability. The only way to win eve is to get off and stop being apart of the cycle.
