Yes that's right, I have switched MMO's yet again! This one is big.... this one is REALLY BIG. Of all the MMOs I have played EvE will take this blog in a completely different and new direction. Well, what I meen by "completely new and different direction" I am talking about the essence of EVE. It's just such a different kind of MMO compared to Lineage 2, EverQuest 2, or Vanguard.
See in a traditional fantasy MMO you have these rails to go on. You might adventure here or there or go quest at this spot or that spot but you are limited to a steady regular progression of your character that is the same as everyone else. A better way to describe this is, "In [insert generic fantasy MMO here] your character gets strong as you level up, but the monsters get stronger aswell, so really the only thing that changes around you is the enviroment. And you just go through the same enviroment and quests that everyone else does."
In EVE its completely different. There are no quests. No places to go and farm, no castles to explore no dungeons to raid. Rather the game is the players. Every journey and every characters experience in EVE is completely unique because there are no "rails" to go on in order to get to the top or to get to some max level to do good in PvP. In EVE everything just IS. It's hard to explain.... I hope you get the point I am trying to make. ;)
Ok the first screenshot I would like to show you is this nice little picture of my mining ship the Navitas.
Beautiful isn't it? Here you can see me mining an asteroid. Behind me floats a jetcan which I place my ore into. Later I will come back with my hauler to haul the ore back to a nearby station.
I quickly made some friends in EVE. ^^ Here I am in the middle of a big mining operation!Here is a picture of a minmatar shuttle. Shuttles are a fast and cheap way to get around the universe.
The universe in EVE is huge! As many as 35,000 people can play at one single time on the same server. That is one of the craziest and best things about EVE the fact that there is just one server. This is so exciting! I can't wait to see what will happen in my stay here in EVE. ^^
