    Dear OP,

     You lost your ship, this is a sad moment I understand, in fact I think you will find many people will feel your pain who play Eve, who among us has not jumped through the wrong gate at the wrong time and realized what a terrible mistake was made? Who has not dared the universe by going in places we should not have been and been rewarded with our warp drive shut down and our hard earned ship being dismantled around us by lasers and drones?

     The tears you shed as your armor was slowly lower and your grey bars turned that distastefully shade of red, as you finally get ejected into the cold embrace of space and then, in a fit of devil inspired insanity, your foe decides to destroy your cradle of life and you are whisked away to a clone many many star systems away with all your well designed implants so much dust on the great ocean of space.

    We feel for you, those of us who have stayed in high security space just to see the maniacal suicides of others, who gave their life up just to see our ship explode in a blaze of fire and shrapnel, these self destructive celestial arsonist who bring so much pain to so many. Yet we acknowledge this simple quote from long ago "If anyone is crazy enough to want to kill a Person in High Sec Space, he can do it. All he must be prepared to do is give his life for the High Sec Kill."

    You weep because the only change you see is the fact that someone has destroyed your chariot in the stars, fear not even now there are others who are building new ships, building new stations and harnessing the powers of the planets themselves just so that you can have a new chariot. So grab your mining laser, your small freighter and forge ahead into the darkness knowing that while your life may be over as you know it, it is not over. This is the dark time before the dawn, the eve of your rise to greatness.


    ....or go play with tanks.


    Lol, you have tallent at writing stuff.  MAybe YOU should pursue a carrer that use this tallent.

    BUT I haven't lost any ship, actually i stopped playing eve for some time because i couldn;t be bothered to do all the stuff to replace the lost ships. Was simply too much trouble.

    I don't know what Star Citizen is or what you're talking about. All I know it's some crappy space sim where you see a guy in a cockpit. yuck.

    Yah , the same was told about every game and all went f2p, including games that had HUGE budget and IP .

    You must be one of those that bought BPOs at the price of 7 years profit .

    They know that the heat is approaching, see eve-valkyry

    Ultima Online would like to have a word with you...

    Grim has my full support ^^.

    EVE will never go f2p, because that woud effectively be the same thing as being dead, only with continued server costs. Too much in EVE relies on the interactions made possible by a single world, and that could never be replicated in a fully f2p model. If it ever reaches the point they are even considering other possibilities than their current model, shutting down would be more likely to get considered than going f2p.

    For those claiming that EVE is being threatened by the newer projects, keep in mind two things. One, what they are saying now is almost certainly going to change when they actually hit the challenges of implementing their ideas. Two, they are different enough from EVE that the majority of their players won't be current EVE players, it will be a completely different audience, and even those that fall into both categories are likely to simply play both, not simply drop EVE.

    Huge budget+IP does not a great game make.  That being said I can't answer the poll because it is rigged based on a biased opinion.  EVE has nothing to benefit from going f2p. 

    Everyone is confused because the saturated market is forcing some developers to choose a specific payment model.  Most of the f2p mmorpgs are from last generation.  Those which are newer MMOs are f2p because they just didn't have enough genuinely unique ideas or that special kind of polish.  We're looking at lackluster execution and/or not enough players for all the options available.

    This is not the new trend, this is just a lull between one generation to the next.  Some are and will continue to thrive using the p2p model.  Some are and will continue to thrive or exist using the f2p model. 

    This reminds me vaguely of those who were convinced the world was ending at the culmination of 2012.

    Keep your pants on.

    The vast majority of P2P games will go F2P.

    EVE is not one of them.

    The vast majority of p2p games fail to take advantage of the potential benefits of a interconnected, wide open world that the p2p model provides. If more of them took full advantage of that aspect like EVE does, we wouldn't even be having this conversation because the game play would be far more likely to support the pay model.
