Three of the last four articles are EVE Online-related. This is getting a bit ridiculous... there ARE other MMOs out there, you know! And some really good ones.

So, what MMO story do you think should have been reported instead of the three EVE stories?

If things happen in EVE (and lets face it, more happens in a week of EVE than a year of WoW), then reporting it seems to be an OK use of time. Purposefully not reporting EVE stories because there have been too many of them according to an arbitrary count wouldnt be very good journalism.

Oh don't get me wrong, I enjoy reading about EVE, but Massively has an annoying habit of focusing way too much on the game. Considering two of the three stories that led to something in my brain snapping are distinctly NOT news in any meaningful sense (this one, plus the call out for EVE bloggers for some 3rd party site), it just gets tiring.

As for what I'd rather see? Well how about some analysis/sneak peaks from the Fallen Earth open beta? Maybe a comparison of CoH and CO that's a little deeper than the typical nonsense? Perhaps some information on the less mainstream MMOs that are out there? An examination of the innovations - or lack thereof - in the upcoming crop of games? Etc.

So by all means post about EVE when something awesome happens - but stop making it the focus so bloody often. It's a great game to be sure - but this isn't EVE Insider.

Actually I was thinking there was to much news about crappy mmo's and not enough EvE news, but to each his own. ;)

If you want articles for other games, perhaps you should have applied to be a blogger.

Also, Eve is different since most of the news and content are player driven. Players can create more events and drama faster than a development team.

Also, CCP engages heavily with their players. Unlike other Companis, who have Community Managers that simply monitor forums.

I blog enough on my own, and I've seen too many good bloggers really limit writing on their own sites once Wow.com or Massively picked 'em up. Thanks though =)

Andrew, your other response is much better and something I can really agree on.

I have been waiting for a big writeup from Shawn regarding Fallen Earth and I haven't seen it.

He spoke about it at length on the Massively podcast, but not everyone listens to that. By the way, I highly recommend everyone do listen to it if they can.

Sometimes, it is much better to see things written out.

This sign is infamous for posting way to much stuff about Eve. Eve has a relatively low populations also and couple that with the fact that most people who play Eve have 2-3 accounts which further blur how many players they actually have. More people play Dofus then Eve, how about some dofus articles? How about some WoW, CO, Runescape, Lineage, final fantasy hell anything other then the gazillion eve articles.
