EVE Online: Madness

Posted on May 27, 2015 at 9:55 am

I “get” some games and genres. There are some things, however, that I simply do not understand. EVE Online is one such game. For those of you who don’t know EVE Online is a massively multiplayer online game where players create pilots and enter into a world that is almost entirely driven by the players themselves. It sounds great; and to read about some of the stories that occur in the world is simply amazing and fascinating but the game itself? That’s something else.
The game has a massive barrier to entry though; it is boring as anything. Many people simply describe the game as spreadsheets in space, and they are not wrong. The game has a lot of real time elements that require you to wait until the timers have reset. Everything takes time; travel takes a long time, researching takes longer and even combat is slow. My advice? Simply read about the game instead.
