I’ve noticed a strong trend in Eve lately, it seems that (like most games) CCP keeps adding more, and more, and even more “endgame” content, gigantic gargantuan doomsday ships that cost several billions of isk to buy, let alone train in its own.
I realise they are also revamping tech 1 frigates and cruisers, as well as adding new tech 2 destroyers, battlecruisers, and cruisers, also, at high prices. It seems to me more and more people that have over 40billion isk and have enough tech 2/named fitted bs stashed away to survive the end of the world, need more of an advantage then they already have?
Big bad alliances getting more content, and leaving the little guy in the dust, of course, this has always been the case in Eve, but making huge ships only flyable in 0.0 (which anyone who has ever been to 0.0 or been in an alliance knows that every inch of 0.0 is closely guarded by the local alliance who controls the territory) instantly cuts off a good number of players.
Why do I care? I’m in an alliance, with 0.0 access, (infact about half of the southern map) fall off of the biggest alliance in the game. However, the corporation I am in, which is part of the alliance, is nothing but a 26 man special operations corp ( in which about 6 of the members can even fly a ship worth anything) As a flight commander of the smallest corp in the alliance, I will NEVER see, much less ever use any of these ships, the new tech 2 ships, i might even fly, however, with only (I know I’m about to get “wtf is he bitching about”) 200mill odd isk laying around, (trust me it doesnt go far when you Pvp like a crack addict) losing one is going to seriously suck
I find myself faking linkdead during station camps to group and finish quests with friends in WoW. I might just be doing the same thing repetitively and therefore getting bored, or I think I’m just not having anymore fun in Eve anymore. I THINK about playing it more then I actually do, whereas in WoW< I just recently got my rogue to lvl 42, and I'm having fun, without running the risk of screwing over my game by dieing, and being able to take a break from grinding to screw around have good ol' fashioned fun, which was once mining in eve. Problem there, I never hated it before, I absolutely loved mining, I would mine for 4-6 hours everyday, if not more, and enjoyed it, because I was able to talk to friends and do other things indepentantly. Now, I just cannot bring myself to mine, its boring, bland, and I do nothing but push a few buttons every 5 minutes while money flows 1 by 1 into my wallet... I guess I need more dynamic game play, and WoW has been providing it. As for Eve, ill see if I can't get 3 more days of fun out of it when I can fly an intercepter.....which will be in about 6 days, until then, Zxyrox out. -Zxyrox
