EVE online is a phantasmal MMORPG that tickles the space senses! If that isn’t enough for friends and family to want to play, TenTonHammer recently gave a few good reasons for people to join.
“#1: EVE Online Has The Most Devious Metagame
All’s fair in love and war, but what happens when one loves war? EVE Online’s metagame is fantastic. The high value of in-game items, protracted nature of war, and value of intel, all make the metagame an all-important aspect of EVE Online. Spying, social engineering, and even the occasional violation of real life laws, are all the rule of the day…”
Wanting another players insight as to why people should play, Enduros, an accomplished EVE pilot, said this:
“…[EVE] teaches patience and planning, lets you have a life and there is no god-like gear… everything can die. Also, there’s no hiding behind level protection if anyone pisses you off you have the option of breaking their stuff! Most of the people out there that are trying to kill you are actually really nice.”
For the adrenaline junkie out there, don’t worry. EVE is full of opportunities to get your blood pumping. Enduros describes an encounter:
“The most exciting PVP battle I remember would have to be this battle we had in the drone regions. Scouts reported that we had an incoming fleet of 100 ships… battleships and support. We formed up… about 40 of us in cruisers/battle cruisers, some t2 cruisers, expecting to get steamrolled. Then we got word that our allies were chasing another fleet that was heading to us; 50 ships, small gang, allies were solar fleet… 30 strong, all t2 cruisers and command ships. We thought that those 2 enemy fleets were moving to form up and steamroll us, but the big fleet was too slow. So we were sitting at the gate when the small fleet of 50 jumped on us, we started taking them apart. Then the big fleet made it too, once they started coming though we started blowing up but when our allies finally caught up and we won. I was one of the few of us in a t2 cruiser…Solar fleet are one of the elite though. What made the battle great is that everyone wasn’t in a big pile of people. There were groups of 30vs30 most of the time, even though the total number of players was almost 200. I generally dislike big battles, but that one I remember”
