EVE Online Description
Eve Online invites players to join in one of the largest MMORPGs, spanning thousands of star systems in the year 23341 C.E. Aside from the constant 5000+ star systems, Eve Online also has randomly generated wormhole systems.
Players choose between 4 playable races: Amarr Empire, Caldari State, Gallente Federation, and the Minamatar Republic. Each race is further expanded with three different bloodlines for each. Bloodlines allow players to have specific fine tuning to their character's abilities and looks.
Once you have a character created, you are given a starting starship. From this point on, you are free to choose how you wish to progress in the game. There are no set classes, though there are a wide array of skills to develop which revolve around your capabilities in this science fiction space exploration and combat setting.
Accumulating experience occurs realtime, including periods where the player is offline. Training can be set in queues, allowing your character to progress over a 10-year period of total training time. The only limitations are that some skills in Eve Online require a certain level on a previous skill to even access. There are also skills that require more time to develop than others.
The real meat of Eve Online is that nearly everything essential is player driven, particularly the politics and the economy. Groups of players in Eve Online can come together to form organizations that dictate the status quo. As resources are not fixed and do not generate on their own, miners and gatherers are essential to produce and trade them. And as Eve Online offers a lot of freedom in play styles, players can choose the unscrupulous methods of acquiring wealth, such as smuggling, piracy, and theft.
Play the game solo or join corporations, military organizations, or pirate alliances. Participate in tournaments hosted by CCP or the player community themselves. Eve Online gives you the freedom to choose carving your own niche in this expansive star-spanning MMO.
