Ok first, my reason for posting this is not to simply bash a game that a lot of people seem to enjoy, but to introduce a game that takes what's good about WoW and evolves it like 5 generations! The depth of EVE in terms of it's play is on a par all its own. There is no "sharding" - all 30,000 players can interact with each other. The Market economy has sooo much more depth as the players extract ore which is refined into minerals which then are combined with blue prints to make "reactions" which are then combined with each other to make "complex reactions" which are then combined with more blue prints to make actual components which are then assembled to make ships and other things. The depth here is UNIMAGINABLE! Training on characters takes place even when you aren't logged on - no "grinding" necessary. The graphics and sheer beauty are magnitudes greater. The Player interactions are much more complex - giving rise to group cultures that are infinitely vast in terms of their nuance. The PvP aspects are mind-blowing and contain far more depth than WoW. There are tons of ex-WoW players on EVE - those that have been lucky enough to discover EVE have never looked back. Check it out - you'll be changed for life!
