I got in the Beta about 2 months ago and was all happy to fire it up and get started. I was greeted with nice graphics, a fairly clumsy interface and then it was like...hmm what now ?
Went to a station but couldn't get a mission. Realized that
hmm I guess I could mine asteroids. Holy crap was that boring..now mind you I was in beta for earth and beyond,
amd actually had fun for quite a while before boredom set in. With EVE it was like maybe an hour. I logged back in
my beta account about 2 weeks ago and could not believe they
were supposedly 'gold' at that point. I kid you not, I had
about 15 errors occur during the < hour of time I could stand being logged on.
You can criticise me for not giving it enough time - well
you'd be right. But a game should draw you in, it should interest you and make you want to play more.
