Amazing. EvE online is the sleeping giant of mmo's, when walking in stations is introduced ( late 2010 or early 2011) its going to be a serious threat to the likes of WoW and SWTOR.

That game looks a lot more fun than EVE, when's it coming out?

lol I know what ya mean DrewIW. I've been playing EVE for about 1.5 years now and still have yet to see the EVE in that video. Though I still and probably always will love EVE like no other MMO.

I also agree. I've been playing Eve for a while now too, and I do really like the game, but I would LOVE to see something like this video.

I think they could introduce PVE missions with capital ships (where you're just one capsuleer in a huge war and campaign).

Also, they can introduce fleet formations - which will make the blob look much cooler and more like a fleet.

How about naming their next expansion SOLODRAKBANSOLODRAKBANSO?

How I long for a mmo game to implement some respectable roleplaying tools.

While I'm not a huge fan of Eve's "game" per se, I LOVE the visuals, the artwork, the stories and the atmosphere. I would LOVE to see Eve become a movie and tv series. We are in dire need of a hardcore scifi show. And I mean one on like HBO, that is rated R, similar to the quality of the Sopranos/The Pacific/Band of Brothers and the upcoming Song of Fire and Ice.

I just started playing EVE about a month ago, and I must say, the visuals are some of the most stunning I've ever seen in a game. And the gameplay... I loved the gameplay. PvP is the major selling point of all MMOs to me. (thus the reason I still play WAR)

But, I had to unsub.

I just felt as though, I was too late to the party. :( That, I had such a huge disadvantage, that I couldn't climb up that steep mountain. =/

Then you really didn't understand the game at all.

There's no "late to the party" in EVE. Sure, you can never catch the player with 100M skillpoints. But you *don't have to* - that player will die to your gang just as everyone else.

EVE has very little 1vs1 PvP - so personal SP differences hardly matter at all. The high-SP char is going to be more of an asset to his corp/alliance because he will be able to fly all kinds of big iron. However, if he flies that, he won't be able to fly that t1 tackler - or that dictor, or that fleet BS or whatever *you* are flying at that moment.

EVE PvP is all about contributing to the general strategy of your fleet, very little about personal SP and "catching up".

If you really want to "be good" then train to be a fleet scout - you can do that in very low SP Interceptor.. then learn to probe (again, Covert Ops is not exactly very hard to get to). Then learn to FC - and congrats you've not only caught up - you've gone way past majority of EVE's +100M SP characters in terms of PvP.

It's not hard but you are still looking at a time investment to be able to fly one of those and get enough SP to be in a decent corp. Because of the metagaming very few corps seemed to me to be taking low SP people-they might be spies. The ones that do 90% of them suck, and fold quickly.

So you do have a period where all you can do is catch up, especially if you didn't plan your skills and need to spend over a month training said interceptor or probe ship. Then you have to catch up to whatever SP threshold the good corps want to prove you aren't a throwaway spy alt. This is assuming you don't get bored of the mission grind, since you can't really PvP at all as a newbie solo.

If you endure it will fit in, but he is right in once sense, there is a bit of catching up to do.

Sad to hear that.

Thing is that some people start Eve with a huge advantage and some with a huge disadvantage. It's decided at birth.

It's not a game for everybody, the tutorial even used to say that.

Hope you find what your looking for in another game.

you've missed the whole point of the game then.. Any joeschmo can join, get into a frigate and join a fleet to wreak havok. You dont need to have 120 million skill points and fly a 60 billion isk titan to have fun in this game.

There are lots of corps that take low skill players - but usually they have a hi sec "navy" where they can cut their teeth.

After a few months you can move out to low sec if that's what you really want to do - usually they'll have a sister corp or alliance that you can join. Or, choose a corp based on the alliance they're in. If you're in one corp that you don't like, you can make friends with other alliance members, and decide which corporation fits you.
