I believe EVE is a Nitch crowd Game. that being said, it is huge for that Nitch Crowd.

I have never liked the game or understood how it has this crowd. To me it is a Space spreadsheet gank fest Game. It is not for me, but I am Happy that this Nitch crowd has a Game that they love so dear. Enjoy.

I absolutely love sci-fi and space genres.  I have ever since waiting in line for several hours at the movie theater just to see Star Wars back in 1977.  However, this game is NOT for me.  I wish it was, but it isn't.

Same for me Rodingo....

I have tried EVE multiple times over the years and I just can't get into the game for some reason even though I love the concept.

Exactly so. Must have tried trial 3 times, bought it, quit again, then resubbed then quit again. Can't find the words to describe what it was that kept me off. Still, best space game in the MMO market, though 'space-wise' single player Star Wolves 3 is 200% fun in story,  combat and ship modding -- I think it's still on Steam (beware though, it's a Russian game - in case you're prejudiced).

Ehh...Eve's fan fest is smaller than Blizzcon.  I find it not to be the only Good news.  It is pretty stale.  But good for the people that play with their 2+ accounts they have.

It's simple for me.  I'm a fan of CCP and EVE, but the game isn't for me.  I like to be a player character, and the ships (as avatar) don't appeal to me.  I wish them the best of luck with EVE, and I can't wait to see WoD.

A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

You have to be a very patient and detail oriented person to enjoy this game, neither of which I am...but I do admit, I come back to it for about a month once or twice a year. in fact, so much work is being done on this game to make it more user freindly and fun, it will be hard for me to ignore it and not sub.

I am actually very patient and detail oriented which is why I always wanted to love this game.  However, the thing that gets me to cancel my subscription when I go back to the game is the PvP.  I find the FFA PvP in EVE just too frivolous for my tastes.  I hate how it trivializes the complex parts of the game that I love to delve into.  I invariably hit a point where my gameplay plans need to take PvP into account and every time the mental arithmetic works out in favour of me not doing the stuff I want to do because it is just not worth the aggravation. 

EVE is built on the foundation of its FFA PvP and that will always limit it to a niche game.

I am Sci-Fi fan and of course I tried EVE. I got completely bored after 1 day. The concept is interesting, but it's just boring.

I read so much good about this game that I subscribed fro 3 months LOL. What a waste....

But then, I understand that some people like it. It's just not my piece of cake. I much prefer SWTOR

I think the OP has spent too much time in space. His perception is way off. "ONLY GOOD NEWS, HUGE FANBASE"???

Eve announced in Feb of this year that they just broke 500k subs. I a number that FFXI held steady for 5 years. That is in no way a huge fan base.

Going on 7 years this year of playing EVE.

I have had my share of ups and downs in interest in the game but its one game that I find myself going back to that has a never ending supply of interesting moments. Some created by others, some created by me ... in any case its the not knowing what to expect that keeps me coming back.

Never been a fan of Sci-Fi Space mmo's. Just never can get into them, I prefer the fantasy mmorpg's.

I love what EVE brought to the table and loved the 3-4 months I put into it but I have no doubts that it is not something that has mass appeal, it really is the definition of niche gaming. It is never going to be a game that will unite the masses and the community knows that, hell I would say that that aspect of the game is its biggest draw for them. If it hasn't reached mass appeal yet its not going to, everyone who was ever interested in it has no doubt tried it by now and has either stayed with it or moved on.

Love it or hate it, EVE Online is still only good news onto itself at this point. The game really is starting to drift into that "you remember that one game?" territory. It may be the s**t to those that play it but outside of the community the game is pretty much unintelligible; that one game that the most hardcore of hardcore play that regular folk won't even have a chance of understanding. People would probably forget all about it if it wasn't for gaming news sites running those one off articles about null sec and some megacorp getting cheated of all its assets.

Ive been playing EVE for several years now and I enjoy it quite a bit. Ive been with a Corp (guild) for 3 of the 4 years ive played so that may influence why I enjoy the game so much. I found when i first started the game I had to change my mindset. I went into it with a WoW mindset and quickly grew bored of the game and quit.

 

about a year later i came back to it with a friend and tried again, it was difficult but once i wrapped my mind around the concept of the game and its pacing I found I really enjoyed it. I think the hardest part for players coming into EVE is understanding the concept and getting into the mindset of the game. Having good and crazy friends in my Corp has definitely made the game interesting, its a lot of laughs and never boring. The game can be difficult but the sense of freedom is really nice. Its not the best game by any stretch but its one that has held my attention for 4 years and I enjoy it for what it is.

 

Best wishes

Saint

But....even those who hate it more than love it, like myself have to admit...that EVE Online is first class all the way. 

Its player base is HUGE, LOYAL, and its community and once a year FANFEST a Juggernaut.

Even its official magazine EON was probably the best looking awesome magazine in the history of print publications, as was its ISK guides paper or pdf and its map packs (print or pdf).

And the graphics....WOW...not content to be lazy, EVEs devs keep progressing the graphics and animations, just to name a few. Its a massive and overwhelming game in some cases, and people will shell out $15 a month to play it. The good outweighs the bad by a landslide.

Unfortunately, the few bad things about this game are the very things which are also considered good and what retains the games playerbase...that being...its OVERWHELMING.

I know some people will disagree with me, but for anyone interested in the sci-fi space genre of MMOs, it would be well worth to at least TRY the game. Dont expect a WoW type or Secret World storyline though, its all about trade, commerce, and space combat, and your ship(s) are your characters, except when you get out at a space station and walk around your private quarters.

I dont know what else to say except that, I always felt EVE was one expansion away at some point to blowing the MMO industry thru the roof. All they need, is the ability for all players to see each other and be able to congregate outside their ships and maybe cut down the learning success curve a bit to the point of not upsetting existing players, and turn up the storyline to more exciting proportions and then they will have a atomic bomb of a game to devour all others.

Of course EVEs DUST 514 is the most ingenius feature to ever come about in an MMO, i.e. the co-existance of console and PC gamers, with PC gamers fighting it out in space and console gamers fighting it out on the ground and the contracts made between PC gamers and the console gamer to have the console gamers protect the pcgamers planetary assets on teh ground is breathtaking...and even the ability of a pcgamer ship to orbital bombard the console players on the planet is EPIC.

We will see what happens.....

I agree with alot of what you said, EVE is still doing very very good, people rate success with MMOS on the number of subscribers but that is a bad way to look at it. EVE has been around longer then wow and continues to grab more and more people, it only has around 500k to 600k subs but that is plenty and more importantly it isnt going in the wrong direction. What I am surprised  about is they havent explored with different genera of mmos. I believe as long as they keep their underlining principles they will be successful with any mmo they release.

I think the makers of EVE are also the Devs for "World of Darkness" the Vampire MMO?

I stopped played it because this games requires A LOT of grinding. U go to battle, u loose ship in few minutes, and than u grind to earn for new one. Or, u fly with the cheapest ships. But than what's the point of the expensive ships? Well just to grind ISK to earn for cheap ships.

I know I'm gonna get blasted for this, but I've said it before. IMHO!!!! eve is like farmville in space, all you do is click around and don't really control anything.  I played it for a month, and the only thing that I liked was running around mining tons of stuff and having my guild escort me back to put it on the market. 

Best Game Ever? Highest game rated on Metacritic!

Not everyone requires a cookie every 5 seconds of playing a game. You always make it sound as if gamers are all 8 year-olds with ADD.

It's not about the cookie, it's about the engaging gameplay.  The overwhelming majority of gamers seek densely interactive experiences where there's a constant feedback loop of action->result->action so that gaming can be a period of dense practice which develops skill (which is the fundamental pattern mastery that our brains instinctively find fun.  Koster, 2004)

It's generally just better if a game optionally provides that casual relaxation gameplay.  Stuff like Dailies in WOW are low-challenge repeatable tasks which the player can relax with, but are optional compared with engagement in high-challenge repeatable tasks like raids.  (And the system would be even better if players could optionally choose high-challenge dailies with even better rewards, in addition to the low-challenge LFR raid versions which exist.)

But....even those who hate it more than love it, like myself have to admit...that EVE Online is first class all the way. 

Its player base is HUGE, LOYAL, and its community and once a year FANFEST a Juggernaut.

Even its official magazine EON was probably the best looking awesome magazine in the history of print publications, as was its ISK guides paper or pdf and its map packs (print or pdf).

And the graphics....WOW...not content to be lazy, EVEs devs keep progressing the graphics and animations, just to name a few. Its a massive and overwhelming game in some cases, and people will shell out $15 a month to play it. The good outweighs the bad by a landslide.

Unfortunately, the few bad things about this game are the very things which are also considered good and what retains the games playerbase...that being...its OVERWHELMING.

My god....the amount of skills and ship upgrades and parts is mind blowing, also...it takes TIME...alot of TIME to accomplish things. You have to be a very patient and detail oriented person to enjoy this game, neither of which I am...but I do admit, I come back to it for about a month once or twice a year. in fact, so much work is being done on this game to make it more user freindly and fun, it will be hard for me to ignore it and not sub.

If you like Sci-Fi and space genres, this is the game for you...if you like to REALLY and I mean REALLY get wrapped up in an MMO, down to the intimate details, this game is for you. But, if you are impatient or lazy...forget it. Your success is equal to the work you put into it.

I know some people will disagree with me, but for anyone interested in the sci-fi space genre of MMOs, it would be well worth to at least TRY the game. Dont expect a WoW type or Secret World storyline though, its all about trade, commerce, and space combat, and your ship(s) are your characters, except when you get out at a space station and walk around your private quarters.

I dont know what else to say except that, I always felt EVE was one expansion away at some point to blowing the MMO industry thru the roof. All they need, is the ability for all players to see each other and be able to congregate outside their ships and maybe cut down the learning success curve a bit to the point of not upsetting existing players, and turn up the storyline to more exciting proportions and then they will have a atomic bomb of a game to devour all others.

Of course EVEs DUST 514 is the most ingenius feature to ever come about in an MMO, i.e. the co-existance of console and PC gamers, with PC gamers fighting it out in space and console gamers fighting it out on the ground and the contracts made between PC gamers and the console gamer to have the console gamers protect the pcgamers planetary assets on teh ground is breathtaking...and even the ability of a pcgamer ship to orbital bombard the console players on the planet is EPIC.

We will see what happens.....

That is worthy of an award for best impersonation of an Eve Spokesperson. ;)
