    As I remember you can buy EVE through STEAM and then skip downloading it through STEAM. Just download the client through the official website and use the key you get to apply time to your CCP account. The reason you do this is because EVE was not well optimized to work through STEAM and would have issues with patch releases and updates requiring a full re-download. You will be fine just using the client from CCP.

    I play through steam and have had no problems with it, I think whatever issues it had were fixed.

    You can log into the normal client using your steam credentials so you don't need to download the steam version unless you really like the overlay for some odd reason.

    Maybe this is too late for you but it might save other people:


    It's full of problems and launching issues, it is generally outdated, you lose certain piviledges from other payment methods (no trial time added, no referral rewards), you are limited to many operations in the eve website later on (account transfers...) and it's a pain to multibox when needed. The only advantage is that it might be faster to download via steam but I don't recommend it at all.
