When I came here I asked if this game was for me. I got a lot of responses and advice. After a lot of thought I decided that for now I won't play the game. Before I say why, I want to say what did NOT influence my decision (or at least did my best not to allow to influence my decision).
1) The Goon Squad. They protest a bit too much. At some point principles have to outweigh fun and if CCP is even half as bad as they claim, they should quit no matter how much they like Eve. It won't change anything in the game, but they'll feel better about themselves.
2) The pro-CCP crowd. I ignored the people on both ends. I swear, some of the pro-CCP posters I've seen here wouldn't believe CCP could do anything bad even if a dozen of their top developers got on YouTube and admitted GS is more right than wrong.
For the game itself, the biggest factor not to play was from one of the first responses I received. The game is ruthless. It's a FFA PvP with a severe death penalty. I don't think I can enjoy myself in such a game. If I was playing against computer opponents, I'd have no problems kicking them when they're down. But against real people it's different. I wouldn't want that done to me so I shouldn't do it to others. From what I have read, being nice doesn't get you far.
Unfortunately if that aspect of the game did change, it loses its appeal to others and a necessary characteristic of the game itself.I'm not vain to think the whole game should cater to my wishes. There are people who want a FFA PVP game and that's OK. I'm not one of them. Maybe I'll change my mind.
Plus I'm still enjoying my current MMORPG and I don't have the time to focus on two games and keep up with my non-computer hobbies. So thanks to everyone who offered their advice. It didn't work out, but hey everyone knows this game isn't for everyone. Keep having fun!
