-99% of players have at least 2 accounts ( i was multiboxing with at least 2 - one farming and onbe pvping, but there have been special times when i had 4 loged in)
-0.1 of players( the noes who are the ceo of corporations and aliances) play for free by tacking/robbing corp funds, the rest are just slaves/meatshield for their corps/aliances/ceos
-now and then when the space is *really* endangered you *may* get a free ship to fight for corp space
-you have almost no room for mistakes: you either get quicly killed by enemyes or you get trolled/harrased/bullied by your teammates.
-there is no concept of fair fight, if you end in one you did something wrong . usually the bigger blob(which can have hundreds of ships/players) wins
-this game should be actually named "metagaming online". good luck killing anything without spyes infiltrated in the corporation controlling that teritory.
All this would not be actually a problem if the game would not require huge amount of farming or real money investment to buy ships. I quit playing the game for quite some time but at that time a fully equipeed shipd would have cost you arround 20 $ or 5-10 hours of farming(not mentioning the logistic to move the ship in space to your station) and you can lose it in a blink. If you see a single target that you want to engage probably is just a bait and you will have 10 capitals jumping on you.
The ammount of boreness in this game is huge. Beside farming for hours/days for a ship you will spend hours to get a fight.
When you get in a fight it will end anyway in a timeframe of 30sec-5 minutes or major lag will kick in and what is supose to take 1 sec takes 5 min.
Usually people keep playing this game because of "hostages factor" - you invested so much time in your assets and you don't want to quit.
EVE would be a great game if it would cut the farming factor a bit and would implement the same insurance concept as StarCitizen. (you loose the ship you get it back with some restrictions)
Yes there is insurance in eve but you get ingame currency. To replace the ship you would actually have to spend hours to transport/haul/move it in space. For capitals is even harder and for supercapitalls you can't even buy one without proper connections not mentioning that half of universe will literraly run to kill you.
