I feel I’ve stepped out of the wilderness
All squint eyed and confused
But even babies raised by wolves
They know exactly when they’ve been used
See when it starts
To fall apart
Man, it really falls apart
Like boots or hearts
Oh when they start
They really fall apart
Fingers and toes, fingers and toes
Forty things we share
Forty one if you include
The fact that we don’t care -Tragically Hip, Fingers and Toes
Nope, I am not bitter (yet) but I have been in a LOT of discussions about Eve and less play happens as a result. Between personally imposed projects and sudden topic squirrels that I have to chase down I barely manage to log in and do a bit of trade or make something.
Which leads me to my first question for you. I hear folks say that Eve is primarily a PvP game and that PvE players need to learn to accept that or ‘go back to WoW’.
No. Because I do not believe the premise that Eve is a PvP game. I believe that it is a game that has PvP as an aspect of it and that is an entirely different kettle of fish. There were folks who brought in the market PvP aspects and said that darn near everything we do has an influence on the game but I do not know that that makes it PvP.
So I looked a little further and I am still getting some answers from the folks who made the game. I do not even expect them to be allowed to have the last word, though, because this game is far more than they ever intended. We the players made that so much more and in ways that the makers never expected us to do.
You, the reader, presumably play this game called Eve. It is a common ground that we meet upon. But that being said, I have no expectation that we share more (other than fingers and toes). We each find in the game what we bring to it, we feed the wolves in our own souls with what we make of Eve. It is so many things and so much more than a three letter designation. Go on, try to explain Eve in one or two sentences. Did you cover it? Did you include things like the Angel Project? Goons? Industry and the Market? Is it possible to sum up the mass creation of not just the company but what we, the players, have added to the game?
Which is why I get my hackles up when someone dismisses another persons gameplay with ‘Eve is PvP, live with it’. I will revisit this, after I have spoken to some more people but I wanted to get the topic out there and see what you had to say.
What do you think Eve Is
How do you explain it in an elevator pitch?
