Eve isn't a game, it's a job. I know people joke around and say that about WoW, but when it comes to Eve it's not a joke.

Coming from a game that couldn't handle server load when the veterans (and newbies) decided to attack major trading hubs with roughly a thousand ships, taking down servers for almost two days.

Call back when you guys can get a million players. Oh wait... you can't.

Funny, but when you only have 3007 people playing your game, I'd imagine it's easier to keep the servers


Yes yes, 29K players on 1 server.

Same thing

Idiot, you are not!

EVE is killer. Internet space ships pew pew. Unless you suck at it. In which case your days of EVE are station-spinning.

If only SWTOR did something similar. trolololol

Wait you don't like logging on to a "game" to file your taxes.

With all due respect... if you had 1000 players attacking a major WoW city on a server that handles your ENTIRE player-base (as EVE does), you might have some problems too. And more graphical stuffs is happening in EVE, especially after the large amounts of over-hauling they have done in the last 2 years.

Or maybe half a million players trying to log into Diablo 3 at once and blowing up the battle.net servers. The hypocrisy of your statement is palpable.

Eve Online is an amazingly deep and fun game.

Amazingly deep, yes. Fun? That one's debatable. Maybe if you're an accountant.

Nah, EvE is a heck of a game. It's just not for your average 14 year old Wrath-baby that's been coddled by Blizzard for the past 4 years.

Oh for christ's sake, it was a joke. I'm aware that Eve is a popular and well regarded game, but it's still a niche MMO.

It also has the steepest learning curve ever, which makes getting into it difficult.

And really guys? Nobody plays Eve? Is that why they're one of the oldest MMO's out there? Why they are one of the only MMO's still running on a subscription base? I don't even play Eve but I'm smart enough to recognize a good, popular game when i see one.


Well, that's not very sound logic. Asheron's call (out way before Eve) is still running with a monthly sub, but I would hardly say it's "popular". Eve is the same. It has some hard core players, how many actually pay the sub vs ISK who knows but your logic needs to be tuned...

Every MMO is a niche MMO
The larger ones like WOW are just a niche for kids and people that cant afford a decent computer.
