    Seriously, just look up some of the old topics on this forum and you'll see everything from the combat aspect of the game to the politics, manufacturing and mass production that are ever-present.

    I don't really think there needs to be another thread about what the game is and what it consist's of since there are tons of such threads already present, just take the time to read through them and you'll find some very pertinent information.

    Go to the EVE homepage www.eve-online.com  and you'll see what everyone's talking about there.  It's actually a good homepage.

    Eve is a constant let down :s The graphics are alright but rape your PC. To have any skills you must wait real-time (with no way to speed it up). Combat is semi-turn based - all your weapons are point and click but with different cooldown timers.

    Basically, everything fun comes with a catch that makes it not worth the effort.

    Go back to your zerg and stop putting down games that are above your own level of reasoning. EVE runs fine in the background taking almost no resources and you say it "rapes your pc". Planetside is the real graphics hog. EVE you can make money with time invested, skills are time-based but you can still set priorities and manage them to do as you wish. It's worth the effort if you are having fun.

    The graphics rape your PC?  I have yet to hear anyone complain about graphical lag.  You should go try to play EQ2 and then say that EVE's graphics rape your PC.  They're about as easy on your PC as MMO's can be.

    They don't rape the machine, but they can be awe inspring. Take a look at the new EVE trailer:

    Some will say yes
    Some will say no

    Grab a free trial and try it. It's the only way you can really decide.

    For me it wasn't worth the fee. I gave it 3 months to grow on me and just couldn't enjoy it enough to justify $15 a month. For the same ammt of money I could rent 5 movies each month and spend 10-15 hours with my family instead of wasting my time in a game that I didn't enjoy.

    Incorrect. You learn skills which improve your intelligence and memory etc, which in turn, speeds up learning time on all skills. You can also use implants to further increase your characters attributes, which will also decrease learning time on all skills. Just to clear that bit up.

    For $5 you can get a cd key with a 30 free trial off of ebay. I bought one a couple minutes ago, it'd be hard to suck enough to not be worth that.
