Okay, you got me.. EVE is indeed a working PvP MMO, that is running on subscription basis... The majority of PvP games however is running either on a pay to win system (world of tanks) or on a cartel market with a different game (LoL and similar).

So claiming "fixed" when changing a quote to say, that this game were running on Cartel market and not on PvP is pretty silly.

Actually you can play EVE online for free if you play the game enough because you can actually buy subscription time off the market there.

Eve is not really going that strong, Most of the people have muti accounts, and they use ingame money to buy time. It gives off this feeling of it is becoming huge, but it has been staying near the same for a while now.


Also, many would argue it is not a pvp game. lol

Of course I can't speak for the entire community ... no one can. But I can speak to the many I play with on Harbinger, Begeren & Jedi Covenant. Most of them won't come anywhere near these forums because of the dozen or so sorry individuals who spend double shifts gang banging the game and its community. GOD I wish Bioware would reset the servers monthly, because whatever they these people are paying for the privilege of spamming disingenuous vitriol is a drop in the bucket that would be not be missed.

I know, my EVE account is running since 2006 on that concept... but that does not add anything to the current discussion.

Stilly claims, that this game runs on the cartel market alone and should run on pvp... I claim, that most PvP centric games are indeed surviving on a kind of cartel market as well, so his post was completely irrational.

That's how they operate ... they have to abuse other people's words because theirs don't work.

When im playing other MMOs or even multiplayer MODs "that shall not be named" its like every 2 hours something happens for me to plan my evening for as well as big weekend things. i come to this and its just que for warzones, grind daily's, im a PVPer mostly so that's kind of it for me and even then my daily's are souly for the sake of stims. I mean there could be so much more going on in the game if someone just organized it.

:2 hours of valor and bolster in outlaws den
:raid bosses attacking kaas city or even the FLEET
:NPC invasions of random friendly zones
:double XP drop in/drop out Open space combat
:Mining events like 2 hours of awesome drops in specific places like again kaas city and so on
:2 hours of faster crafting
:Po'Companion'mon load into arenas with ur companion and u can only control their quick-bars
:Pet-Hunts (and realy they need to be respawning when their available who the hell re-clicks them after every Ops just sayin)
:2 hours of PVE coms drop-chance in certain places
:gambling on naar shaddar (i also seem to remember a droid race back in the day)
: tickets to load into ranked arenas as a spectator in spectator boxes (grey out quick bars)
:add a form of bolster and access to coruscation for imps and DK for pubs lowbies can insta-gib their enemy's for 2 hours but also have 55 enemy players spawning in random areas, will you defend your own young-lings or invade?
: hunt down Revan (he is hiding somewhere in the galaxy as a world boss, find him and call for re reinforcements, defeat him for rewards) once u target him he throws up a shield that requires a 30 man group to beat lowby worlds could bolster any player in the fight perhapse?

there is soo much potential for spontaneity in the galaxy that just is not happening and Im sure bioware could invent hundreds of these things and just being around for these things would give allot of players who like myself are becoming bored with the same routine day in day out, the game feels almost totally written off with a few token events once in a blue moon instead of a regular bases maybe just because the devs have nothing better to do or EA just dont think its worth paying them to organise these things and if they don't care why should we? even the facebook page has more events than this game does how sad is that? why cant the gree land for 2 days of the week every 2 weeks ilum is totally dead for the second week of the last 2, same with the bounty thing, same with double XP weekends i mean in all seriousness bioware do you want people to play this game or not?

EDIT: TLDR: Yes i mean this game needs more live dynamic events to bring the galaxy to life, including making use of the slowly added content.
This whole thread is implying you cannot play more than 1 game at a time.
