EVE Online has it all: space exploration, spaceship production or destruction, player cooperation to earn EVE ISK (InterStellar Kredits), the in-game currency, player competitions.
EVE Online is just so different. From its massive universe to explore, to the total freedom of things players can do. There are no levels in EVE Online, but you strengthen your character through real-time training of skills. There are no job classes for your characters, so you can learn any skills for any specialization. The time needed to master multiple specializations is a downside though.
Player to player interaction also differs in this game. There are a lot less restrictions in EVE than in your typical MMORPG. Take for example, stealing and scamming. These are usually grievous offenses in other games, but are totally legal in EVE. However, attempting to sell EVE ISK is still prohibited. You can technically buy ISK by buying certain in-game items with real money, and then selling them for ISK.
Ways to Farm EVE ISK
In this expansive universe, there is so much you can do to earn EVE ISK. You can explore, discover new systems and mine for ore, or hack into relic or data sites floating around. When you successfully hack into one, you get items, which could be valuable or junk. From there you can either sell them or craft them into more valuable objects like weapons or ships. If exploring’s not for you, you can play as a trader instead, focused on transporting, selling, and buying goods. Otherwise, you could beef up your ship and become a mercenary-for-hire or pirate instead. If you like watching combat instead of being in them, you can opt to be a scavenger.
All in all, EVE Online is a unique MMORPG with a fresh take on the space exploration genre. This is what No Man’s Sky could’ve been if it were made properly with a focus on player interaction instead of exploration.
