The question here is: "Why do you play EVE?"
There is much to gripe about and many have ugly things to say about CCP but the bottom line is that if you're reading this then you plop down a monthly payment, or spend enough time to trade ISK for a PLEX, so the question is why?
(And for all you "I don't play anymore because blah blah blah" types, you did play once and there was a reason, so spill it!)
Personally I enjoy PVP. First person shooters are one of my favorites but they are checkers to the chess that is EVE. I'm also a stats geek and will spend days on EFT fitting a ship to make use of every amp of grid and every cycle of CPU on the boat. If that ship goes down in flames, I'll look over the log and study the KM trying to figure out how to make it better.
I like the fact that loosing your ship is a loss not just a small set back in time as you go and collect everything off some corpse. There is some real excitement when I stand to loose something I put a lot of effort into. Big reward when I win and a lot of yelling at the sky while the dogs cower in the corners of the house after 1.5 billion isk goes pop. The challenge is the key.
And the challenge comes from the other humans who play the game. Any single player game I've played cannot produce the challenge of another person. Other MMOs and their so called "PVP" is more like pokemon. Nothing is better than leading 90 people you've never met in real life to victory against a foe that views you as a bunch of scrubs who only managed to undock out of pure luck.
So, what about you?
