No. If news that have been floating around is not enough to get you excited, then this game is not for you.

Why even ask the question if there is not something in the back of your mind already tugging at you?

Never sacrifice freedom for security

2/22/13 1:54:07 PM#5

Any news, retribution etc. EvE isn't instant gratification and not a lot of people get that, if you've chosen not to play or you just don't like it, don't play. You shouldnt need someone to convince you.

 

On the other hand, i don't mind free plex. Feel free to sign up under the buddy program.

The way I see it, Eve is a unique game in that you either get hooked or you don't, and there really is no in-between or second chances.  I've tried playing it multiple times because it looks like so much fun in theory but I get bored a couple weeks in every time.

IMO if you got bored with it before then it's not for you, the cycle will repeate itself unless something is different for you (eg. you have a few friend that play).

Go to the naughty step mate.  If you don't like it do not do it.

Why do you need convincing from random dudes on the interweb? You either like it and stick with it or hate it and uninstall it, there is no inbetween.

If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

My favourite contributionist (is that even a word).  I love Torgrim, a man of many faces, troll and guru, cat and cow.  Genuinely fun.

It seems like you just want a reason to go back. You probably enjoyed it and your friends told you it was boring.

Did you enjoy the game when you played it? Y/N

If "Yes", join the game again.

If "No", don't join the game again.

I played WoW up until WotLK, played RoM for 2 years and now Rift.
I am F2P player. I support games when I feel they deserve my money and I want the items enough.
I don't troll, and I don't take kindly to trolls.

If you have to be convinced then maybe its not for you.

Are you prepared to do anything differently this time?

EVE is all about second chances. It's just that those second chances aren't free.

These very forums are replete with posts from various people, all along the lines of "I had to try EVE 3/4/5/6/28 times before it clicked for me".

I would convince you but I need a spreadsheet.

In most cases, that means finding a decent bunch of guys to fly with.

Do you have something better to play?  That might answer the need for motivation right there.

I agree.  One of the perils of true multiplayer gameplay is the risk of not finding the right people to group up with.

Since I haven't played it. You should play it again just to show how much better at it you are than me. Work?
