Worth it?

#1 Posted by PATERSON (248 posts) -

Hey guys I stumped on what MMO to try out before Star Wars comes out and I came accross EVE online. Is there still alot of people playing and is it worth it? or should I move on and try a different MMO ( not WoW please ).
 
Thanks!

@pwnasaurus:

You can download it for free, but it still comes with a monthly subscription fee. And you should definitely give it a REAL try, not just 1-2 weeks. It takes some time to get into (still not sure about everything after 3 years), and it's a learning game. Take your time with it, and not just say it's shit after the first day cuz you can't go into big fleet battles.

Thanks for the advice, I'm just trying out the 14 day trial, so I'll see how that goes. Sounds like you still play?

I do very much. Jump in on the GB channel in EVE if questions should come up.

Might take a little time but once you find yourself a good corp full of helpful and friendly people the game is pretty fun. The community makes the game more than the game itself but I guess that is what a proper MMO should be. 
I got burnt out after 5 years but GL and hope you enjoy it.

I'm trying the game out right now as well, and I can't get over how good it looks after all these years.  I'm enjoying it quite a bit.  It's nice to play something completely different.
