This game is not for pussies or 14 year? old trolls. It is made for intelligent, mature players and it's difficulty weeds out the weak and the whiners. that is one reason it is such a great game. If you want an easy, pointless game you can win in a few months go back to WOW out one of the dozens of clones just like it. But if to want a challenging game with real risks, tactics, teamwork that you can play for years and years and still get your adrenaline pumping, play EVE.
It's the top-rated comment on one of CCP's latest "introductory" videos, "CDIA Files: Pilot Orientation". It was a video associated with the latest trailer, "Awakening" (which I pretty much hated from start to finish). However, there are two CDIA Files so far, this one and "Agent Missions", and these two videos are much superior, in my opinion. Maybe it's the total lack of wooden acting. ;-)
Everyone and their dog seems to have an opinion of what EVE's "end-game" is. That, in itself, is part of the sandbox experience. What is EVE's end-game? It's whatever you make it. Therefore, anyone who points you to anything in EVE and says "X is the end-game of EVE" is simultaneously right and wrong. Unlike Mass Effect 3, EVE ends when and where you want it to end... if you want it to end.
Anyway, it was kind of funny to me, seeing this proselytizing on EVE's end game on comments on a video which are so squarely aimed at people just starting their EVE careers (if they've even started playing).
This also tickled my fancy this week, though it didn't quite rate QOTW honors:
There's a joke shared within my corp and a few others. Wormhole space is ruled by a mysterious god, named Bob. He controls connections for all of w-space and in his realm, you are at his mercy. It's silly, but you can't deny the inherent chaos of wormhole mechanics. We've got nothing else to blame, why not Bob?That one's Yashir Wong at FHC. Yashir, there's some Amarrian cultists here that say they want to have a word with you...
All hail Bob!
