Those are the words a friend of mine used the other day while we were on Teamspeak. And, I can’t really blame him for using those words. Because for some, if not most people who try EvE, or even play it, there will be moments of intense boredom.
Mostly because in EvE, you create your own fun. I play and have played a bunch of MMO’s with said friend, and EvE is one of the only ones that he disliked from the start. Because there’s no goal except for the one you create for yourself. In games like Wildstar, World of Warcraft, .. You go to maximum level and then gear up to get stronger. In EvE, you can’t rush to “max level” there isn’t one. You can’t skill up fast, because everything happens with the queue, and you sure can’t queue up for battlegrounds because PvP can be everywhere.
I have to admit that I myself have gotten bored in game too, but I keep myself subbed because I don’t want to lose the precious, precious queue time. I don’t have to log in to “get better”. I can still do my industry without being logged in for hours, I can still skill up without having to log in for weeks on end.
But this is not a game for those people that want an easy experience, those that want things on rails, to be told what to do.
Sure there are corporations out there that will gladly use you as cannon fodder and tell you what you should do, but is that really fun?
EvE is only as boring or as fun as you yourself make it. Go out there and explore different bits of the game before putting a label to it.
You might just be surprised on what fun you’ll have. I know it sometimes still surprises me
Stay tuned o7
