What does everyone think of EVE Online?
Do you think its playercount's downward trend can be reverse or is the game simply too dated in its mechanics? Will there be a game that fills its niche as big spaceman MMO?

 No.20569

I think the gameplay is just not that fun, if I wanted to spend my hours fighting the wars of people much richer than me and follow their schizophrenic orders I would just go to work in real life

Didn't they partner up with microsoft to integrate Excel into it? Like bruh I don't wanna larp that much.

 No.20600

I like the idea of it a lot but it's not really all that fun. It's also pretty gay that the devs will just up and cheat and interfere in space battles to make the people they like win.

 No.20601

The alliances/corps are overly stable and often it's because of artificial reasons such as the alliance and corporation system being poorly designed/overly simplistic.

It's kinda baffling that fighting other people's wars isn't even fun when most games revolve around such a concept. You would think in a game like this that people being given free ships to fight wars would be considered a sweet deal.
>>20600
Yeah I like the concept more than the execution.

The difference is in most games, you are fighting for liberty, to destroy the evil emperor, or whatever, there's some ideological reason behind it (or at least emotional investment), whereas in EVE, there's no ideology, just different cliques of rich overly online techbro losers fighting each other to get their shrivelled dicks hard, neither side is fighting for anything other than the ego of the people in charge

Is there though? Any form of emancipatory politics is anathema to liberal media, most of the time it's "Kill them because they're bad" and the local warlords seem to manage that propaganda well enough.
A sizeable portion of media doesn't have this motivator because of its attempts to appeal to the lowest common denominator, it doesn't want to shove politics in their face, it wants to get people hyped to kill the baddie and not think too hard about ideological implications.
Look at someone like Bane for example, he's agreeable right up until he's like "Actually, changing things is bad, and trusting non-institutional leaders is bad, and because you're an idiot I'm gonna nuke Gotham City"
And this isn't getting into the fact that mercenaries are a very popular trope for these kinds of games. People still play STALKER, GTA, FC2, Fallout, Mercenaries, or even Team Fortress being the prime example of people who just want to shoot things. Many people would have joined Hoyt in FC3 for example.
Ultimately it's a video game and whether you fight for an ideology or are a complete mercenary is entirely aesthetical and has little bearing on your real life self.

Being a mercenary is fun though because it's self-directed. Fighting for fortune makes sense as a gameplay motivation, but fighting for the glory of the same kind of assholes that oppress you in real life, not so much.

x3 is a lot better :)

 No.21367

dead game, the only hope is to reboot it on a fresh server with all the P2W removed and multiboxing banned, which will never happen, ergo dead game

 No.21369

>>21367
Pretty sure multiboxing is already banned, in theory

 No.21384

>>21369
no, they do and have always encouraged multiboxing because it pumps their numbers; why wouldn't they? (apart from it making the game shit, of course)

the only disallowed multiboxing is using free accounts, but if you're paying for 10 subscriptions you're encouraged to fly all 10 in a fleet at once

 No.21391

>>21384
I see.

I don't think it matters anyways, any game where you can play 10 instances of it at once is for sure garbage
