New Trailer & A Call To Arms – This is EVE!

When making trailers for EVE Online, it’s always been difficult for us to showcase our community’s passion and enthusiasm for all things New Eden.

This has always been the hardest thing for us to capture, process and display to the world in its most raw form, given your seemingly boundless creativity and dedication to the EVE Universe.

A few months ago a number of people at CCP decided to take on this challenge, and at the start of September we released a cluster-wide call to arms in order to collect the community’s most awesome moments from voice comms.

After weeks of editing, a lot of discussion and many hours of rendering here at CCP we hope that in some way we may have found a way to display the fun, frustrating, exhilarating and intense moments that the community has submitted to us in response to this call to arms.

We’d like to present a different view on producing a trailer for EVE.

This is a view that focuses less on EVE itself and more on the people who make it live and breathe. All of you, because without your mining, manufacturing, piracy, war declarations, spying, espionage and gatecamps, New Eden would be a pretty quiet and lifeless place.

Debuted at EVE Down Under, “This is EVE” is not only the newest trailer for EVE Online, it serves as a tribute and a thank you to the EVE Online community for twelve glorious years of mayhem, with the hope of many more to come.

“This is EVE” is available in two formats:

Uncensored & Raw (Contains Strong Language) - Samples from voice comms remain as they were when they were submitted to us.

PG-13 (Censored) - Samples from voice comms are censored when mean capsuleers say bad words..

Help us further with This is EVE!

Along with the release, we’d like to make a second call to arms for the community to translate “This is EVE” into all our supported languages (French, German & Russian), as we’d like to continue to put the creative power in your hands and enable the finest community in online gaming to showcase EVE Online.

We would eventually like to display these translated versions on the official CCP Games YouTube Channel, with full credits to those whose videos are featured.

You can submit to your localized versions of This is EVE by mailing share@eveonline.com.

We’ll also have some further activities based around “This is EVE” coming in the next few weeks, so be sure to keep your eye on the community news feed!

I joined a nullsec alliance after 2 months, in my first week I was in a pvp brawl with 1100 people

The mechanics arent perfect but the devs are making improvements all the time and expansions are free every month

Been playing this game for a long time, and it has come a long way.

Of course any game has its ups and downs, and this game is no different. But i will say that this is a true "SandBox" game. Can work you butt off for a ship, and the next day lose it. But then you have the community to fall back on, Everyone is willing to help just as long as you ask.

I will recommend that whoever buys and plans on playing, that you have ALOT of patience. This is a skill training base game, and the skills help alot, but get completed over time.

Crack is less addictive. Crack will probably also keep more of your social life intact. Crack might also be less destructive to your manners, behaviour, integrity and general well-being. EVE turns decent people into sociaopathic outcasts in a couple of days.

If you have to choose between EVE and Crack, choose Crack.

You'll thank me later

Eve is a phenomenal game.

Playing it for me was like watching star wars for the first time. It's like entering a universe previously unseen to you before and getting encaptured in its ways and lore. Everything about the game is perfection, there's something in it for everyone. Want to ravage the lonely spaces of Low sec as a pirate? Want to mine minerals and make a profit? Want to explore the deep fringes of space looking for galactic treasure? Or maybe you just want to do it all. There's something there for everyone and the amount of possibility is endless. I highly recommend this game, if you like any sandbox MMO this is for you. Well worth the monthly subscription.

Endless space to explore, Ultra-detailed graphics, a tons of ships and stuff, giant battles.
This game is the best space MMO the world ever seen: you can be a pirate, a mercenary, a businessman, a explorer....you can be everything as you want. In battle, is the same thing: you can prefer to fight with guns, lasers, bombs, missiles; you can choose to fight with good planned strategy, or a hit-and-run, or a rush.
You can create your corporation and take a part of space where you can create your personal station, hangars, lab, and etc.
At the end, this game stole your hearth if you play it. 12/10

I'm playing EVE for 1 1/2 year... but certainly not for the game mechanics... I'm playing because of the corp I'm in.

EVE has several huge problems :

- It's very complex. You'll need 2-3 month to have a correct understanding of what can be done in the game (and there will still be huge points you won't know about). Production, Mining, Research for T1 (material/time efficiency), Research for T2, Planetary Interraction, Exploration, Wormholes, Escalation, Incursions, Factionnal Warfare, Corp/alliance war, PvE and PvP combat, ... Don't expect to jump in the 2 weeks "trial" and have any correct idea of what EVE is

- Skill learning is REAL TIME based. On some points, it's good, you don't need to grind your skills. On the other hand, it'll take months to get decent skills, years to get good skills and you will probably never pilot one of those top-level ships (Titans). The skill system make sure that early players will keep the upper hand.

- To make it worse, at a time, you could get Tech 2 Blueprints that could be used endlessly (BPO). Now, CCP switched to limited use Blueprints (BPC) that you've to research... this is great... except that they didn't remove the BPO giving once more a big advantage to older players...

- To make a better use of blueprints (use less time and materials to produce them), you've to research them. It takes much time (to max up a Frigate (the smaller ship) blueprint, you'll need more than a month (2x19 days). Again, older players have their blueprints maxxed (maybe using less time that you'll need) which means that you'll never be as competitive on the market (except if you concentrate on smaller items)

- Besides Mining and Planetary Interraction, there is a 3rd kind of ressource needed : Moon materials. Nearly all the moons that produce these are controlled by some mega-alliances which make them out of reach except by buying them (at an artificially high price) on the market. While the first materials can't be monopolized, the third one is quite limited...

- Speaking of Powerblocks... the game is controlled by some big powerblocks (big alliances)... which are quite closed... you've nearly no chance to join these which means that your impact in game will be quite limited...

- To begin the game, you've some assets (starter mission grant you a few ships and skillbooks, which is better than when the game began)... but to begin to really play, you'll need much ISK. Advanced skillbooks are expensive, same for advanced ships and equipment... which means that you'll have to grind for ISK in the beginning... Either by mining or by doing PvE missions...

- When you're killed, you join a new clone... Except that any implant in your former clone are lost. You'll probably need at least 2 clones, one for learning skills (with expensive +4/+5 implants) and one for fighting (with no or inexpensive implants)... To be able to create that second clone, you'll need to grind your reputation (standing) with one NPC corporation... which takes time.

As you can see, there is an huge unbalance between older and newer players.... one that can never be negated (when you learn new skills, so do them, add to this advantages like the T2 BPO, Blueprint research,... As long as these are not addressed, I could *not* recommend this game to new players.

If you still want to play, here is a few recomendations :
- complete fully the beginner's missions
- you will be able to find several places in your part of the galaxy with the same beginner's missions... this'll give you some more ships/standing/ISK which will help you much in the beginning
- take some time mining with your Venture (you'll get it with the beginner's missions) in 1.0 or 0.9 systems (no rogue NPC) with some extra mining drones (mining->5, drones->5, these will always be useful)
- at the beginning, think about "generic" skills (Spaceship command, Hull upgrades, Mechanics, Repair Systems, CPU Management, Electronics Upgrades, Powergrid Management, Weapon Upgrades, Navigation, Warp Drive Operation, Afterburners, Cybernetics (3 or 4 in the beginning), Shield Operation, Shield Management, Diplomacy, Social, Target management, signature analysis, long range targetting,trade,...) These will be useful whichever way you choose to follow (Mining, PvE, PvP, Exploration, Distribution, Trading,...) as these will increase your survavibility in space, help you fitting modules on your ship and unlock a lot of other skills
- stick to one kind of ship : Minmattar, Gallente, Amarr or Caldari and one kind of weapon (Projectile, Hybrid, Laser or Missiles). You'll have time to learn the other one later
- only fly what you can afford to lose... Each time you get out of the station with a ship, you may lose it... To an NPC, to a pirate gank (even in High Sec), ...
- Unless you're into PvP, use implants +3 or +4 to boost your skill learning (some mission will give you implants as rewards)
- Choose your faction... Don't do missions for Caldari/Amarr if you have chosen Gallente/Minmatar. Try to grind a 8.0 standing to your favorite NPC corporation (make sure it has medical facilities) so you can create a jumpclone...
- DON'T USE YOUR BONUS REMAP (well, wai for about 1 year before remapping, more bellow)

After 6-7 month (minimum) and WHEN YOU'RE SURE ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT TO DO, begin to plan your first remap. Most skills are likely to be Intelligence/Memory or Perception/Willpower. Your remap will allow to max out Intelligence or Perception, to get a decent value for memory or Willpower and reduce the other to lowerr values... So, choose which remap you'll do (ships/weapons => Perception/Willpower, production/research/electronic warfare/drones/... => Intelligence/Memory).

When you've chosen your remap, only train the skill that use the other characteristics. For example, if you decided to remap Per/Will, train Int/Mem... keep in mind that you'll keep your remap for months (matbe a full year)... this will be 5-6 month training before the remap... after the remap, only train skills related to the remap.

DON'T JUMP TO BIGGEST SHIPS. Frigate/Destroyer/Cruiser/BattleCruiser, Small/Medium weapons, only T1 ships (you may use some T2 modules, forget about faction/deadspace/... modules). These will require less time for the skills and are less expensive.

And, try to find a good corporation. Avoid the "gankers pirates", they'll lead you nowhere and there are plenty of good PvE/PvP corporations. Don't fall to these "lotteries" scams or to the racketteers... Fly safe.

gotta add this to the top, i lived in null(delve), factional warfare low sec,high sec, i joined ♥♥♥♥♥♥ corps, good corps, blank corps, i did incursions, low sec pirating, null sec warfare, i had WH panic attacks, 'low sec ache's, high sec depression, jita infection, i know what i am saying,

alas i am not a 'veteran', i only started 6 months ago, i have 1 pew pew toon which can fly t2/t3 and 1 indy toon, here it comes;

this game is not for 'anyone', that red thumbs down is for you guys if you are a casual or a mediocre gamer then just stahp reading this, run before you lose your mind.

but if you are in to some real action, if you think have the guts, time and patience to do this then keep reading;

this game is purely hardcore, it may cause depression, panic attack and can even make you a paranoid person.(which means this game has a soul and an effect on the person)

if you are new at eve, think real hard and decide if you really want to play this game and how dedicated you are, learn the races / read the wiki like its the bible, figure out who you wanna be, after that pay 6 months in front, fill up your training queue, learn the ropes meanwhile (somewhere between 2. month and 4. month), and come back when you are able to at least fly a t2.

yes i basically told you to wait 6 months before playing.

did i told you 'pay for your subscribe with isk' thing is a lie because you cant get that much isk every month as a beginner?(at least not in first 6 months if you dont have real good friends)

because if you are new to eve, this means you are the smallest fish in the ocean, and this is a 'pay to wait' game.

you will train so much skills in order to be able to fight back at least, it really needs a lot of patience, eve is the most punishing game to start, ever.


there are people out there who has 10 miner alts, and multiboxing with all of them, which means if you are an indy toon you cant compete with that guy whatever you do, no one cares as long as the multiboxers pay.

the worst part is not just miner multiboxers, tengu pilots with their scouts controlled by the same person, market bots, spam programs,

i literally saw 'xyz 1 xyz 2 xyz 3 xyz 4' named pilots in a low sec roaming fleet.

i mean you can really play this game with 4-5 toons at the same time, 1 man fleet.

no one can say me that is not ♥♥♥♥ing hacking, i really dont think no one can say that.

happy new year edit: https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=387571 this is good news for example, i want to see more.

2 weeks ago i was thinking about when will eve die, 'this summer or next winter, when will it go f2p' i was asking myself these, but with this new promise, when CCP decided 'i want players trust not the isboxers money' , now i am feeling content.

CCP proved they have balls, and this will be written on stone after 1 more month.

it will take quite a while to settle but this is a real huge step towards healing eve.

bot tears everywhere, it is really good riddance.


there are goons out there who will do every type of shet to you because he thinks in his little mind that he is 'superior', fascist sociopaths, immature authorities, its just too ♥♥♥♥♥ wrong to let some fascist goon sht on your head, and eve is ok with that like everyone else, if you think like a decent human being then you are a 'carebear', a toilet paper, a toy.

but if you are a 'griefer' , oh boy you are the god, decent eve pilot, blowing up people who started 1 months ago,our sacred proud soldier going after ventures in his cat.

it is just ♥♥♥♥♥♥ pathetic, really, it is just pathetic nothing more.

the real problem(it may not be a problem for you) is not these sociopaths, eve is promoting these kinda behaviour.

i paid nearly 400 bucks to this game and still i cant say 'i am doing it' , i dont think anyone is doing it, sometimes the game feels blank, just empty because everyone is doing the same thing, some manufacture ships and sell them to manufacture more ships and sell them as well, some people shoots other people so he gets a killreport which fells like a cheap achievement, they said 'everything in this game is player creation, there is an solid economy' but damn they didnt said everyone is doing the same thing over and over again until they puke their brains out.(just like the real life actually, they implemented stuff a bit too real apparently)

they say this is sandbox, i dont think it is because all you can do at space is 'warp to - jump - align - burn towards - dock' this is it, all the manuevers, travelling across the space needs some serious rework because it is kinda dull in current state.

everyone fly the same ships, there is no customization because if there was one CCP couldnt sell their 'XYZ edition' ships at AUR store (there is some signs from CCP about this case, this may change)

fitting the ships are kinda open to imagination but it just doesnt cut it, because when i undock my ship is just one of the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ vexors out there going to do the same frigging thing over and over again, ratting belts doing sites is boring, seriously it doesnt feel like PVE, it just feels blank.

PVP is boring as well, there is our Fleet Commander Yells-A-Lot(big fleet fatty) , 'do this do that and kaboom because i fuked up' you will feel like a drone in fleets mark my words, just a fukin drone, you cant do solo pvp oh no sir you cant do nothing if you are alone, because the loneliest guy at eve will be flying with his alts multiboxing the shet out of the game meanwhile you try to do rat belts on your own.

i know a lot of veterans, some were there when eve was born, and they are all saying the same thing, pvp was much more nicer before, 4-5 years back.

people who thinks he's a scammer but merely all he does is 'send me isk i'll send you back double xd' , market orders asking 60 million for 1 tech one drone luring people to missclick, hauling contracts which asks billions and billions isk as 'insurance' but pays a few million at the end(mostly you will get blown up just for that colleteral, much more profit that way)

idiot people who cant just understand the fact that game is broken and this ♥♥♥♥ needs to be fixed.

i am not shtting at eve's face, i am trying to point out facts instead of waiting at dark corners in silence, murmuring with others 'eve needs new blood sush let them come', if you start playing this is what you gonna get.

there may be some points flawed with my review, but these are just harsh facts that i encountered, feel free to point out where do you think im wrong.

i can see CCP is trying to sort things out, but i dont think CCP is in full control of eve.

after CCP admits 'multiboxing(isboxing) is hacking(which they kinda did) and goons/griefers are ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s(still the golden boys of eve) and mittani(may god have mercy on his soul) is not someone who must be respected - just a piece of shet and they did some wrong moves with the game in their past and they want to lower the price of PLEX(way too high in current state) until the game evolves to something better' , i will gladly edit this review.

some of the things i complained about may be nice for you, or some of the things i love about the game may be gamebreaking for you, it really depends on the person, rule number one at eve is 'adapt' , so if you can you will be able to do what you like in eve, if you cant then you will suffer.

just try the 21 day trial and decide for yourself, research the game before you get in to it, there is a high chance you will like what you see but suffer in the first couple of months, after 5-6 months you will feel that you can do much more then before.

RHEA EDIT: im giving EVE and CCP a 'secret' thumbs up, things are getting better and you gotta know you cant find anything like eve anywhere, it is unique.

They say war is 90% boredom and 10% terror and I think this is really fitting for EVE. I've played this game for three months. One of them hacking Relic sites in Null, two of them in Faction Warfare. I've dabbled with a little bit of Planetary Interaction, Market trading and hauling but most of my time spent was with PvP, which people promised me was the most rewarding aspect of the game. But it really isn't an enjoyable experience.
The Boredom
In this game I've waited for Items to sell so I could afford new hulls and modules, I've waited for Shipping Contracts to be completed so that these modules would be where I needed them, I've waited for skills to complete so I could fit those items, I've waited in Faction Warfare plexes so that a timer would run down and give me points, I've waited for fleets to form, I've waited for fights to start. And at the end all that waiting got me was the sight of my little frigate dying within a minute of me arriving on grid.
The Terror
The problem I have with EVE is that the battle is already decided the moment you enter warp, if the opposing pilot isn't pants-on-head idiotic. Every Tier 1 Frigate has counters within its own tier, every older player flies Tier 2 frigates that have superior stats to begin with. Your first losses are spent learning that out of the 340 or so ships you can only realistically engage maybe 6. Then your next losses are spent realizing that everyone has a better fit than you. Then your next losses are spent realizing that finding a single, frigate for a brawl is near impossible. And by the end of it all you spend your time hitting the Directional Scan like a madman just hoping that no one is going to drop by to blow you up for once.
My impression
If you like to make plans then EVE might be for you. But I am not that person. I'm casual, I like to log on shoot some stuff, get shot at, then log off after an hour or two. I don't plan where and what I want to shoot people with months in advance. I enjoy a game where I can outsmart my oponent, not outcalculate them, I enjoy respawning combat ready after 10 seconds, not having to reship for 10 minutes, I enjoy tactical gaming but I did not enjoy EVE Online.

Spend the first 30 days of your game time getting ready to play, spend the next 30 days of your game time learning to play, then spend all future subscriptions attempting to pay for your subscription. It's a never ending money sink source of entertainment.

On a more serious note, this is a complete sandbox game. Nothing will happen if you don't find your own fun, which is something hard to do for new players. I seriously recommend joining a corporation as early as possible because you won't have fun until you do. You don't need to say anything to join one, just apply and get in. People won't even greet you unless you say "Hey I'm new here!"

I'm like 95% sure this game is more labor intensive than my actual job, and I work in a warehouse.

Also, can I put "Experience with organizing spreadsheets and increasing weekly profit margins" in my job applications now?

EVE Online is probably the best MMO i have ever played. There is literally nothing you can't do in this game. You terrorize carebears by being a Pirate. You could be an industrialist and take advantage of those pirates by selling them ships and modules at marked up rates. You can explore the depths of space like no other, visit the 2,000+ unknown wormhole star systems on top of the 7,000 known star systems. A lot of ISK can be made by running Incursion sites with a fleet filled with friends. New Eden is truly one BIG sandbox and it is incredibly addicting, definitely worth the $15 a month.

NOTE: THIS IS NOT A SPACE FLIGHT SIM. If you are looking for that then this is not your game to play.
