I played EVE about half a year and here is what i really think it's positive:
+really really huge world to play in
+FUCKIN COOL SPACESHIPS WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED?
i often think about reactivating my old account but there is this negative thing that makes me leave EVE again(if i resubscribed) or don't even resubscribe:
-as someone that plays solo 75% of his time there is no story to become the hero and i don't like the risk of lossing my ship and my clone and SP....
So seriously, there are even more people out there which think the same as i do then people who actually play the game!
Why didn't any gamedev ever try to do something like EVE, but more WOWish or like GuildWars....of course don't change the sandbox aspect of the game!
I don't want you guys to tell me why you think i'm wrong or that you got an other opinion....and no offense postings please
i'm just a poor german guy that hopes his team will win EURO2012
