    Not really, it's kind of a make-your-own-story game. There are faction ties and things, but not any "set" plot, per-say. It's plagued with pirates who will let you know you're a noob in-game by destroying you, then leaving most of your crap floating around in space. It's fun if you can find a decent fleet to join, but has the worst learning curve ever created by an MMO. Here's an official diagram of EVE's learning curve....




    Oh, and sorry I haven't been on LIVE lately, it's been hectic up here, lots of test and the like...

    I always get X3, Anarchy, and Eve's backstory confused. I thought they were all a little similar about trying to find earth or getting lost from earth because they were using jumpgates created by another ancient race and one got blown up and we dont really know how to get home or where home really is.
    I played for a year and loved it, but it was a little hard to learn without actually studying. I quit a few months after the exploration expansion came out. Exploration was fun and very time consuming but yielded very little sometimes. That was 3 years ago.

    eve have nice backstory. First there was a wormhole called eve gate. It lead to another galaxy. So people went through and started colonising. However after some time eve g ate collapsed. Colonies without support crumbled. tousand of years later from the old colonies humans learned to fly in space again. 4 empires were created. Oldest were amarr, than gallente, than caldari rebelled and emerged from gallente, and minmatar, run form amarr slavery. there is 5th force, caled the Jove, they are cloned and mind transfered oryginal colonist, and they keep the old terran technology. They sometimes interfere in 4 empier, one of gereates were war against amar that liberated the minamatars. owever jove are dwindling, and suffer from jove disease, kind of fatal depression. they took all what was left and left for far away systemsm, to isolate themselves, first enforcing some pce along 4 empires, and creating CONCORD, the interracial pacemaker police force. behind those 5 there are 4 main criminl syndicates: Gurista Pirates, Serpentis Syndicate, Crazy bloodthisty manics from Bloodriders, and Angel Cartel. There are also Rouge drones, a hostile SI civilisation. And lesser forces, MErcenaries from Mordus Legion, Sisters of Eve, EoM, Societz of Conscious Thoughts.there are alot of ingame history and lore, available through Chronicles, the stories, the book ( 2nd one on the way) and ingame events and trailers. Ah. and 6 months ago during Apocrypha expansion they added unstable wormholes that lead to Sleepers space. area that is a leftover i giant empire of tehnologicaly advanced extinct alien race. But what is best for me, the game have 6 zears odf plazer made history. The Pendulum War. Thate ended in destruction of Cyvoks Titan, and BReakup of ASCN, The rise and fall of Band of Brothers, The North Campaign, the MAX, The player history of eve is full of battles, betrayls and backstabs. No other game offers that. No other games ofers battles betwenn two fleets with ablut 600 livingpeople in each ( though the lag is still an issue, but during last 3 years the made enormous breakthrough, from geting lagged to death at level of 200 peopl, to 1500-2000 people in system

    Band of Brothers fell? Wow. They were the largest entity out there when I was playing. I used to listen to some Eve podcasts and they always talked about what war Band of Brothers was currently in.

    I don't like EVE. Unfortunately, the same company is making the White Wolf/World of Darkness MMO.

    Wow, that's pretty big drama. I wish I was playing when that went down. I loved huge fleet battles for areaas that really mattered.

    I'm not really sure why but I have been playing Burnout: Paradise a lot recently. Something about exams really make me want to drive around. MW2 is also nearby but again, I'm far too distracted and I don't want to destroy my kill/death ratio.

    I just got a 5 day free sub from Eve to come back. But five days? Crazy. If it was 10 I would do it, but 5 will just let me remember all the stuff I forgot, and not really get into the new stuffs.

    I'm really looking forward to Mass Effect 2. The Game Informer article was awesome. I pulled out Mass Effect and have been playing my way through that agian. If you haven't tried it I highly suggest it, it is part RPG part Shooter and all awesome. It is an epic game with a hugh universe to explore.

    Most players don't want to read. Edge gaming magazine just had an article about that with the devs from WOW. They admitted that one of their mistakes was not incorporating the story into the game better. I never played the game, but I give them kudos for acknowledging that and trying to make it better. Playing 4 or 5 mmorpgs in my past, I have neglected most of the backstories except in EQII. I read the backstory for Eve and even read a few issues of EON magazine, but the story was a bit convoluted, except just the outline of where the people came from. So many corps and fueds. Anarchy had a cool cartoon to tell some of its backstory, but after the animiation was outdated, no one bothered to find out what that story actually was.

    Its becouse eve dont have main storyline. there is no great evil threating to destropy all life so everyone needs to unite. In eve there are alot of lesser conflicts, and player have freedom to pick one he want to participate ( with the new addition of epic storyline missions). or can creste his own story in 0.0. thats what sandbox is all about. every nation have their own problems, every big entity, corporations, churches, crime syndicates have their own sstruggle.
