"Eve is boring."

Those are the words a friend of mine used the other day while we were on Teamspeak. And, I can’t really blame him for using those words. Because for some, if not most people who try EvE, or even play it, there will be moments of intense boredom.

Mostly because in EvE, you create your own fun. I play and have played a bunch of MMO’s with said friend, and EvE is one of the only ones that he disliked from the start. Because there’s no goal except for the one you create for yourself. In games like Wildstar, World of Warcraft, .. You go to maximum level and then gear up to get stronger. In EvE, you can’t rush to “max level” there isn’t one. You can’t skill up fast, because everything happens with the queue, and you sure can’t queue up for battlegrounds because PvP can be everywhere.

I have to admit that I myself have gotten bored in game too, but I keep myself subbed because I don’t want to lose the precious, precious queue time. I don’t have to log in to “get better”. I can still do my industry without being logged in for hours, I can still skill up without having to log in for weeks on end.

But this is not a game for those people that want an easy experience, those that want things on rails, to be told what to do.

Sure there are corporations out there that will gladly use you as cannon fodder and tell you what you should do, but is that really fun?

EvE is only as boring or as fun as you yourself make it. Go out there and explore different bits of the game before putting a label to it.

You might just be surprised on what fun you’ll have. I know it sometimes still surprises me


Stay tuned o7

  1. I've done everything in that game from mining and industry, market pvp and trading, PI to exploring, High sec wars, anti pirate stuff, Low sec pvp, piracy, bounty hunting and contract killing/evictions, Null and even Wormhole pvp. I really have done it all in that game.

    the Wormhole guys are my favorite because they are NORMALLY "not always" the most skilled players in the game. but having done everything, i can safely say, EVE IS BORING as sin!

    The main reason for that is though is constant updates that break/destroy things you wasted months trying to get, or just flat our Removes content from the game.

    Removing mines from the game, or missile slots from a number of ships back in 2012, or removing fighters assits from carriers thus making them not really carriers anymore.. are but a few examples of content being completely cut for no good reason, especially when the community handed CCP a list of easy fixes each time content was removed, that would of addressed the problems surrounding those issues at the time...

    clueless developers that refuse to listen to their customers are another issue.

  3. When you waste tons of time and money on the games over priced subscription, only to have the things you tried to get nerfed into oblivion for no good reason, especially when their are so many other issues that could, and should of been addressed.... Its a very frustrating feeling. That is exact sort of thing that will make your players leave the game.

    Honestly Eve should go free to play, its not worth 5$ a month let alone the 15-20$ they want each month, its a complete joke.
