EVE Online is offering free to play access to the game via alpha clone states. Will it be enough to bring players back to the game long-term?
EVE Vegas is over and details were released about the update coming this winter and the expansion coming in the spring. For the first time in awhile, I feel like playing EVE again.
New players will receive 400,000 skill points. It's an amount that helps new players but is absolutely no threat to veterans. Finally! It's like CCP is truly listening...and it's wonderful!
While I give props to CCP for making a sandbox game where players can play both good and bad characters, when players knowingly torture one another (and enjoy it), something needs to be done to stop it.
Ocelote is an example of someone making positive changes in their life. It's like he's a different person.
One of the unique aspects about EVE Online is their player created wars. This time, 4070 pilots (players) decided to battle it out. And it was epic.
EVE Online is one of the few games where I've seen such a disconnect between what players expect out of a game and what the game developers want to offer.
"EVE is real because the woman I've been listening [in videos] to is standing in front of me right now."
While it is frustrating to lose when playing against other players, poor sportsmanship ensures no one will want to play with or against you.
Imani and I decided to take a trip to The Promised Land. We had no idea what we were doing but we had so much fun!
