Although I decided I won’t play EvE in near future, the game design was great.
Every MMORPG I came across suffer heavily in price inflation, new player cannot catch up with old player, NPC based Economy, divided Dev force.
EvE had a relatively small team compare to WoW. And yet the whole game run on it’s own. There aren’t much stress on developer for new content, since the game content is so deep in design that, no one had the time to figure out the whole picture.
Risk, Challenges mostly are posed by other player, rather than Developer keep designing new mechanisms. What WoW fail deeply in, excelled in EvE.
It feature in human-human interaction, cooperation and trust. Although the system do not cater player as WoW, fraud and hostile action is common in EvE. Yet people trust each other in this setup.
Internet and moreover MMORPG had a bad reputation on human trust. As Anyone can drop out at anytime, there aren’t much trustworth among players. But from observing those co-operation we can see the dim on humanity.
I really enjoy my time in the New Eden, Thanks CCP
