I am extremely optimistic about this MMO. I love space combat sims and hate that my joystick and throttle are collecting dust. This could finally be the one to break me away from WoW.

No you can not exit your space ship. This is a Space Combat MMO. Not a end all be all MMORPGs.

If you don't like space combat and space ships then you will not like this game. Even more so if you didn't like Jumpgate then you will not like JGE as its the same server core and same game engine just massively improved and more focused on providing fun over a space simulator.

SO do we know if this will be 'joystick' control flight or more of the Eve mouse click type?

Benicio, it's twitch based not an EVE clicker.

No, the very definition of large scale battles is spelled 49-U6U. Good luck matching those JGE.

To compare a point and click game like Eve ageanst a realtime combat game like JGE is stupid at the very least. Its like comparing a online card game to a realtime mmo.

If JGE can pull off a 100 person battle with realtime combat it will surpased anything that Eve could ever hope to offer.

Your talking about a game where your actual physical skills with a joystick and/or keyboard / mouse matter ageanst a game where nothing but your ship setup and skills matter. To opposite games.

Not to mention least of all the graphics for JGE are blowing everything Eve has out of the water hands down!

I like games like Wing Commander and some Star Wars Space Combat games but never played Jumpgate! And I not understand how a Space Combat game can be a MMO like the only thing Massively about it is the space what is noting more them a large black arena with some colorful rocks and some blinking lights.
