Today watching the game streams the top streamers was getting 170ish viewers. This is typical unless its Zarvox or BjornB. THey usually pull hundreds.

Today an Eve employee streamed them texturing. Shot up to just under 1000 viewers.

Who would have thought watching someone texture in game assets would be more fun to watch then someone playing the game.

    Eve is a amazing game with a huge learning curve, I notice when you are real new people are quick to help and generally wont give you much of a hard time. But the second you show up in any kind of ship beyond the starter ships or show any sort of knowledge of the game  ie you are in a worm hole its game on . Get good or prepare to die. This game is not for the faint of heart. Unless you are unemployed or don't mind getting punched in the balls daily i wouldn't recommend playing this. I often think about going back but im too much of a baby to deal with losing a big haul to some ganker after 4 hours of grinding.

    now that sounded... quite salty. =)

    there is a saying in eve online: don't fly it, if you can't afford to lose it.

    and that's basically everything you need to know about the game, hehe.
    it's gaming and controles are no dog fight, more an active simulation, but if you are into it (and if you do not know, trying out is free), it's a pretty good game, but as said before:

    you need balls, or friends, lots of friends....
    (and yes, eve has "pve" too, you can actually play that game pretty "save")

    Some people like me  loved to stare at rocks all day long, linning up to base to fast jumps in case of ganking and watching channels and "eve-who" sites to see who is coming and going and try to guess why.

    The chances are, if you are asking if it's fun, you won't find it fun. Watch some gameplay, if you get bored by watching you'll probably get bored by playing.

    No im not salty , I think Eve is a amazing game. Its not the ship its losing cargo with massive amounts of value/isk that hurts. Like i said im too much of a baby to deal with the swings, But i guess thats what makes the exploration and hacking so rewarding. I'll probably go back at some point and yes you are right, you need friends. I like playing solo which isnt really what eve is about.

    THIS

    I'm an explorer. I make all my isk running data and relic sites and selling the loot. It may not be the most eficient way to make money, but I sure have fun getting my ass to deep null, avoiding camps, keeping my eye on d-scan and avoiding people that come to actively hunt me. Sometimes I fail, sometimes I win. But those wins? Oh man, they are so satisfying and something you don't get in any other game that I know :)

    Why would I need to watch someone play the game when i can play it myself? Outside of looking for particular boss strategies in a game or some other once-in-a-while need, I have  no use for "Let's play" videos.

    However, getting to watch how something in the game is made is interesting and educational.
