There is absolutely no way it won't pull players away from Eve. The question is whether it is a tiny number of players or a large number of players. I have no idea what the answer to that question is. They are very different games but they both are supposed to give you that large universe to explore feel, just in different ways.
Honestly I am sorry but I feel the need to say this...
I dont trust the star citizen team.
I see their vids and some of the stuff they have gotten together but guys when the money stops coming in I just dont see this team sticking around catering to money they've already spent.
This kickstarter has a big and I mean BIG impact if it fails. It may be that last straw for far too many players and THAT can be a gigantic smouldering crater if they dont or cant follow through. I mean they are talking about 2-3 years before they get something out the door when they have enough capitol to make a big push in under a year.
Thats the type of planning someone who doesnt plan on being around for long outlines!
Now I know some of us have spent 1000s of dollars and will defend that....moment of stupor for -ever- but please players and people alike be carfull as this sets a presedent whether or not they come through smelling like roses it still will aways say just how gullable most players are!
I expect EVE players to subscribe to both.
EVE is the kind of game that you can put on the shelf and "play," even if you don't actually play all that often. You can log in, train a new skill, check to see if your goods have been sold or bought, and log out.

Originally posted by Phaserlight I see it as a very expensive remake of an old concept that has been explored at length in the online realm. I hope it's a good game, but all that would be doing is proving a concept works which I already know.
Could you please point me in the direction of one of the many multi-player space flight sims with dogfighting style combat, and ground combat as well. Preferably a AAA one. Since it's so overdone that should be pretty easy for you.
..or maybe the reason backers have invested so heavily is this hasn't been done well before. The lack of quality games that provide this kind of gameplay is what is driving the community. Your comments make it clear your pretty disconnected from that type of player base.

When someone leaves EVE Online, they do it to get as far away from EVE like content as they can. Even if it's for a short term/ long term break. When they want EVE content back, they go back to EVE.
Star Citizen is a threat to EVE like STO was. It wasn't.

That's a strange statement, and probably unlikely Eve has been around so long that most of those interested in SC, more than likely tried Eve. The more relative question is "How many Eve players will return to Eve after trying SC?".
No Doubt that a good deal of Eve player will try SC but also a large part of the STO and SWTOR player will most likely try SC as well. So How many many people will try SC and stay? How many will Going back to their other game? and How many will support both?

You never know what a little competition can do.
Star Citizen will be the best space combat sim ever made.

Nice ad hominem.
I'd be glad to point you to a twitch-based, space-themed MMORPG; I've been playing one for the last ten years. (No, it doesn't have ground combat, but it is planned. Landing on procedural planets isn't exactly a new idea.*)
I'm grateful for the experiences I've had in that game so far; I hope you have the same kind of experience in Star Citizen.

Just to be a troll and a killjoy, I'll say that I found Chris Roberts' 'Wing Commander' game(s) to be not that great. To me they were merely linear, simplistic (3 button), frenetic actioners with a cut scene thrown in at the end of every mission. And something you played for a week or two, only to then throw or give away. But perhaps Wing Commander was one of the first interactive movie type games? And that did make it/them revolutionary in some way.
Freelancer? I don't know, I never played it. But lots of people sure do seem to love both of these series. Maybe it could be fair to speculate that 'shooter' fans will have plenty to look forward to with SC, while other types of players may not?
From my view, EVE caters to gamers who play "hardcore" games. Star Citizen will not have the whole territorial conquest or massive fights that EVE has. What Star Citizen will have though is actual skill based combat. I can see this one fact being a huge issue for various "hardcore" gamers who love to compare PVP e-peen. Skill based PVP vs target based PVP will be a big issue.
Granted, this is on the longshot that Star Citizens persistent universe doesent suck.
Not even the same crowd.
EVE is like Civilizations with spaceships, Star Citizen is a space version of Pirates! series of games.
People who like EVE will probably find Star Citizen too simplistic and combat too hands on.

I didn't know CCP released EVE player system specs.

Isn't SC system requirement higher than EVE's system requirement?
