Today is my first day in the EvE universe. I have been playing MMOs since late 2008 only because I did not have a PC that was capable to run them. WoW was my first MMO and since then I have played many. I took advantage of the Steam sell and got Eve and CO. Today is my first day of playing EvE: I have been playing for only 3 hours. I will be adding more when it seems right too, so here goes:
This game is known for having a steep learning curve and I do agree. The tuturial is great, though. Though still confused at times (due to my lack of space games) I am steadily learning. The tutorial does do a great job of explaining. I am a Gallante/Gallante class. Name is, queue music....'WhackANewbie". The graphic scheme is pitch perfect. This game is 5 years old and the style still look amazing. I am not sure if they have updated the graphics with each add-on but as simplistic as these graphics, like Fallen Earth, appear to be they work extremely well. As far as pacing it, thus far, seems slower than usual. I am not sure if it will always feel like this or if it is just because I am beginning. Regardless, if it is always at this pace I have no issue with that. With Wow you would command your toon to run/fly somwehere for a minute. With Eve it seems the same with the exception that the ship manuveurs itself; I can't tell it to turn left or right, but it still would take the same time to get to a point as in any other MMO were you full on command the movement. Again, I have no issue nor do I see why anyone else would.
The UI is still taking time to get used to. Not sure if I need everything on screen but I will find out the later I progress. The text really hurt my eyes but I found out I could make it bigger so it is of no concern anymore.
Thus far the community has been great, and mature but I expected it to be, like Fallen Earth. I like the background noise; it is very atmospheric and very fitting. Usually I listen to my own music, with any MMO.
One thing I am happy with, and I am not sure if others will agree, is it is easy to switch out to the internet with this game from windows. Most MMOs there is a long pause when I hit the key to minimize but this game does a great job of being able to go to the internet right away while I am warping or doing something else.
I guess that is all for now, I will be back again when I feel it is appropriate. For 5 dollars anyone should try this out. Or do the 14, or the 21 day free trial (which you can find, easily). This MMO is different. I, myself, am not a fan of space sci-fi games but I am giving this a chance and thus far I am still wanting to play. Who knows about CO though....
