To be pedantic and to help with the misconception's people have about EVE Online when it comes to space ship simulation games, the title i think summarises what kind of game EVE Online really is. Hopefully this will clarify some thing's for people who are looking into the game and give a little summary on the huge scope of the game.
So many people think spaceship games should be twitch based and immediately dismiss EVE Online or regard it as just a bunch of spreadsheets. EVE Online actually behave's more like an RTS, the skill involved comes with knowing what to do and when to do it just like any RTS game. Just like in an RTS there are times where you have to act fast to counter or get one over on your opponent. When doing PVP (Which is one of the main aspects of EVE Online) there is more emphasis about knowing the strategy that goes with your own playstyle and ship setup, being able to pull off the strategy to win by using good judgement of what your strategy and ship setup is compared to your opponent, knowledge of the game and timing rather than more emphasis on being able to dodge quickly by the game having twitch based game mechanics.
When you get to the stage where you are starting to understand how warfare and industry works when concerning corporations, alliances and region and market control, you start to realise how much like an RTS the game really is. In essence the leaders of the corporation's, alliance's and their lakeys are trying to manage their own region's of space and market on a huge scale. Ofcourse they are also trying to work out the best ways to dominate their enemies regions of space and create problems for their industrial activities.
The strategies must be established by these leader's, prepared and initiated through hundreds of real players working together, mining and building ships by the industry corporations for example and PVP warfare to gain control of space by the more warfare specialized corporations for example. Ultimately for the overall goal's of these corporations and alliances.
In essence Eve Online is a MASSIVELY MULTIPLAYER ONLINE (MMO), REAL TIME STRATEGY (RTS), ROLE PLAYING GAME (RPG).
Thank you and good night!
