    No game confuses me more than EVE when I watch the live streams on Twitch.

    SECOND GENESIS - 6 MAY 2003

    Quoted from http://www.eveonline.com/expansions/second-genesis/

    Considering WoW released in 04 and LOTRO in, what, 07?  This chart has been around for so many years.

     

    Hell, if you searched this site I'd assume you'd see this one pop up at least 25 times.

    That's a good thing, it means it has content you have to learn,  I can watch a WOW stream as a total noob and after 10 mins I know what WOW is all about and seen all the content, have discussions with a hardcore 24/7 raid leader and tell him how it is done.....without ever subbing.

    I love how CCP operates:

     

    "Our game is too complicated? Alright, here's a 38-page encyclopedia that teaches you how to play."

     

    The sad thing is that CCP thinks their game is amazing because it has over 400,000 subscribers, but just a few design tweaks here and there to make it easier for new people to get into (without sacrificing the hard-core end-game competition) could easily push EVE over a million.

    __________
    When you see a new MMORPG, honestly think to yourself: "Is this game designed to EARN my $15 per month subscription with content, originality, and long-term value, or is it just designed to SCAM me out of $50 when I buy the box at the store with flashy advertising, biased reviews, and empty promises?"

    Eve isn't complicated.......there is just lots of easy to understand information out there to learn.

    Don't listen to the people trying to tell you otherwise.

     

    Do the tutorials....that will give you a basic knowledge of core information to get you started plus ships and isk (ingame money).

    I am agreed here !

    Eve is hard but not complicated just accept fact EVE is sandbox &  there are not limitations

    only EVE is real MMO...but I am impressive with TSW

    I didn't get that memo. :( 

    There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein
