That is partly because of economical reasons, Eve had a really low budget at launch. I have a feeling that WoDO will be a lot more complete at launch.

MMOs do always evolve but with the right devs and budget you can get a great game out of the box, even a great game that isn't like something before it.

Right now besides WoDO I also keep my eyes on Undead labs Class 4, it is a zombie sandbox MMO with some rather experienced devs (including Blizzards old lead programmer from Diablo and WC3).

Mhhh the production quality of Darkfall and its sequel are abysmally bad compared to the production quality of EvE, even back at release. There's a reason why EvE is close to having 500k players while the Darkfall series never passed even 50k (10% of eve). More people would play Darkfall if it was more of a sandbox and less of a gank fest, but also if it had higher production quality.

Can you elaborate on how you measure the production quality of EVE and Darkfall respectively?

Production quality = quality of the engine, of the graphics, of the animations, of the audio, of the world/universe design, of game mechanics, of content design and of course the absence of bugs, lag and other issues.

Darkfall:UW has made SOME progress compared to the first on some aspects, the animations and audio are still horrible but at least you don't see the sun through the floor anymore, but concerning game mechanics and content design...

Granted, EVE had it easier because of the space based design, but they got it right with things like their security levels.

PS: note that I'm neither an EVE nor a DF / DF:UW fan, so I'm quite neutral here.

That's my point. I don't want to be part of a game were John Doe, 20 years old, who stopped his studies and has no job, plays 12 hours a day in his mom's basement and can therefore dictate how I have to play the game or he'll make the experience a pain in the ass for me. Something akin to that gank guild in EvE, by the way... the "Goons". If the ability to control the game was expanded even more than in EvE, who do you think would rule the world? People like the "Goons", of course, and they would be delighted... Imagine yourself bowing to "Lord Goon", because you basically have no choice, you play 10 hours a week, he plays 10 hours a day.

Unless you're actually a member of Goons, I don't see how they can dictate how you play.  During the three years I played Eve, I can honestly say that Goons and every other large alliance had virtually zero impact on how I played.

 

People who don't play EVE often don't get how incredibly enormous the map is:

http://www.eveonline.com/universe/the-world-of-eve/

Every single one of those tiny little dots is a star system. There are thousands of them. After seven years playing there are great swathes of the map where I have either never been or have just taken the quickest route through. There are - by design - hundreds of out of the way little clusters where players are quietly minding their own business, advancing their own projects and rarely giving a moment's thought to what the mighty player empires are doing. If you live in, say, The Great Wildlands then what goes on in Fountain is barely a rumour to you.

And that's just K-space. Wormhole space is another 2500 or so systems on top of that, hidden from the map and only accessible by constantly shifting, treacherously unstable wormholes - and the top alliances in W-space simply couldn't care less about any "King Of Space", and would take gleeful pleasure in brutally crushing any attempt to make them try.

I must have missed something with Eve...It felt like I was watching paint dry the entire time I played.....I would have zero interest in a fantasy game like that.

You have to go out and find the action; it doesn't come to you. People who "wait for EVE to start being fun" are as likely to succeed as people who wait for their life to start being a success. And for pretty much the same reason.

I had a blast with Eve, but maybe it's because I'm getting older or for some other reason I'm much preferring the non-competitive PvE world of GW2 these days. I personally like, a lot, being in full control of whether or not I engage in PvP, which I do often. But sometimes I need a break from it and like to casual out a bit in PvE, or maybe take on a challenging dungeon or the like. When I'm in casual mode PvP should be my choice, not someone elses. So for me, even though the idea is and should be appealing to many, I wouldn't bother with another MMO in the Eve style these days.

I learned about that one in this thread. Looks pretty cool. Not crazy about the overplayed vampire theme, but the rest of the game sounds so awesome I'll have to try it. Really hope this one winds up on PS4...  CCP was said to be developing something for next-gen consoles. =)

Like the original UO Pre-trammel? Did it, done it, miss it.

Let me rephrase then, WE KNOW NOTHING ABOUT IT YET other than sandbox and Everquest. The fact that people like yourself are already moaning about the game is just proof that most MMO players are just whiny cynics with nostalgia goggles sewed onto their faces. Kind of a sad thing really...

Negative.  Eve is what Eve largely because it released in 2003 and there was very little to no competition and no expectations.  Especially for a Sci-Fi space sim.  Had Darkfall released in 2003, it wouldn't have been held to anywhere near the same standards as it was when actually released.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T99yo6iQ7Zc

That's what Eve looked like in 2004.  Did you actually play it when it released?  It was atrocious to look at, animations where nearly non-existant, the UI was nowhere near what it is today, and there was almost no tools to shape the sand in the sandbox with.

CCP has did a good  job with keeping Eve cutting edge and developing it into something special, but don't pretend like Eve could release today like it did in 2003 and that the company would have anywhere near the same success.  They would be eviscerated for a half-assed and terrible product, the same as Darkfall was.

I'm pretty sure he meant that absolutely no information whatsoever has been released on it, other than it's name and that it's a sandbox game.  

It is pretty ludicrous how people are hyping a game that doesn't even have any in-game footage.  And it's Sony ffs, you'd think that people would atleast have a little bit of self control.

I hope you still  like playing videogames when your in the old-folks home.  You're going to have a long wait on that game.
