    Well that knowledge saved me 5 years of paid video gaming.

    I haven't read this entire thread, but if this statement is about Eve online then this is completely false, in multiple ways.

    Technically, Jimmac is correct.  A person could spend their trust fund and still be terribad in EVE Online.

    Between two players of equal skill though, the one who can keep bringing ships to the field of battle is going to win a game of attrition...

    ...the rich horrible player will just keep feeding the other player's epeen.

    I miss the MMORPG genre. Will a developer ever make one again?

    It's always nice when I meet people in space with that mind set.   I love loot pinatas.

    LOL @ obvious troll bait.

    As an alpha/beta and 5 years after launch player of EVE I can assure you, pvp is definitely not for carebears. Unfortunately the game has changed for the worse imo.

    CCP tries to control it but I think it is just too ingrained into the system and is too attractive to newbies as a way to advance in a game that is otherwise impossible to advance solo.

    There is your problem right there.   find some friends...

    Indeed, I was only referring to one isolated fight, and not repeated fights between the same individuals or group of individuals. In the latter case, the game can easily become a war of attrition.

    i left this thread due to the obvious troll bait...was shocked when returned.

     

    And try playing this game as a small alliance or corp without moon goo or plex...it is a challenge :)

    You have obviously never done any pvp or if you did you tried to fly your ship the same way as you would in a mission (would explain the bitterness) You don't understand concepts like manual piloting and module management or any of the things you need to be able to do in a pvp fight.

    Currently playing:

    EVE online (Ruining low sec one hotdrop at a time)

    Gravity Rush,
    Dishonoured: The Knife of Dunwall.

    Company of Heroes II.

    Ummm, it seems like everyone is missing the obvious piece here. You can buy in game money for every mmo, EVE just tried to reduce the swarms of 3rd world ISK farmers and people buying ISK from them. This thread makes me want to /palmface.
