Well it's MMORPG for starters, than you have only one server to play on =) So everybody is in the same universe
You advance in real time, so you set up a skill and go to work and it's still "learning" in EVE universe =)
Big Alliances with 100s of pilots fight for space and right to mine it...
Pirates lurking in not-safe space waiting for traders to steal their goods...
smugglers, player controled market with inflation and stuff.
Oh did I mention great graphics ?
OMG just found out that my corporation is going to war tomorrow =) My God it's my 3rd day and already we'll have war to extinction
We will be fighting some pirates that want us to pay them for using "no-man" space.
Feel like that boy in Helms Deep when Orcs are coming !
