    I think their biggest obstacle is the game engine.  Its 10 years old and very inefficient. 
    By "game engine", are you referring to the graphics engine, the client/server code, or some other aspect that you seem to have some strange amount of knowledge or insight on?

    What part is "10 years old and very inefficient"?


    The one that puts high demand on your hardware like I said before.  I don't think I made it that confusing to see.
    What high system demands? I run 6 clients on a gaming laptop with no problem.

    It has never had high system demands, so what specifically are you referring to?
    That's odd when I try to walk around on the captains quarters my hardware is working overtime and whenever there's a fleet of more then 40 ships I have to zoom all the way out so my computer can keep up.  Guess you don't notice anything because you are using a gaming laptop and not a normal one like the rest of the world.
    Are you onto something or just on something?

    The captains cabin thing, tbh, i don't use it, if they ever get around to finishing WiS then maybe i will, as for the ships thing, it sounds like you have a problem with your pc, i've never had any problems of that nature either, although i do have a relatively powerful desktop PC, the game renders just fine using Dx11 and i have yet to have my FPS drop below 60, although having said that, i think the game does cap the framerate at 60 anyway, the only difference now is that i run it at 1440p instead of 1080p.

    As I thought not a problem with the game's optimisation.

    You should never play MMORPGS on anything less than a mid grade gaming desktop or laptop, your experience will suffer.

    EVE is 10+ years old!

    CCP stuffed EVE when they diverted programming & other resources away from the game years ago.

    EVE has always had a thing about using a lot of resources on some system configurations, not EVERYONE own's or wants a GAMING LAPTOP or system & stats suggest that more players DO NOT HAVE them than do...
    Also you do realise that if only people with GAMING system played MMO's then there really wouldn't be that many people playing MMO's any more. That comment makes me scratch my head & wonder WTF is wrong with you?

    Anyway we shall see how much longer EVE remains around for. I give EVE 2 years before down sizing begins....

    Looks like the 'hardcore' finally got rid of lot of players with their harassment and exploits.
    If all that left were the whiney kids that want to take our hardcore game away, then good riddance.  EVE survived on 5k, 10k,  20k... concurrent players in the past.  It will keep surviving as it always has.

    For all the softcore gamers, we are assured that Star Citizen is on it's way.  I'm sure that the less hardened space adventurers will find a home there.
    IF (and thats a big IF) Star Citizen ever launches it will be interesting to see how it does affect Eve.....The game is 11 years old.....New players have zero chance of competing with veteran players.....Also paying a sub model for an 11 year old game has to be pushing the limits.

    In the beginning.....only people with good gaming computers could play MMORPGS.  
    WOW changed the landscape and not for the better. I'll be happy to see the casual gamer swept from the genre, and a return to the more discerning users.

    Enjoy your MOBAs.

    Before wife, kids, business, I was pretty full-on with my MMOs.  Now I am a casual due to time constraints i.e. there's a lot more to life than playing on a computer all day.

    Are people like me to leave the genre now then as time-served, no matter how much we may have contributed to it's success thus far?

    Enjoy your solitude with that broken tired computer of yours.
