Don't be so severe now. Try "exploration" missions, I bet you'll love them.

i've got 30 days, but so far im pretty disheartened with this game.

if you ever played freelancer that was THE space game, but it was out before MMO'S and the small private run server's killed it.

they need to bring that level of "space play"

one of the biggest things i hate so far is the warp cut away scenes. i had major hopes for a tail camera mid warp scenes or controlable, not just "push x to change locations"

Eve has a ludicrous amount of instancing, every single system is separate, every roid field is separate and missions send you into a part of space you have to search for with probes, I don't see how you think that is any more open.

Exploration missions are the best. I got one where I had to scan gorgons, it was awesome just because I didn't have to fire a single phaser.

I was wondering when someone is going to point this out.

So many people compare EVEO with STO and say "how good is EVE because of it's 'opennes' and no instancing" but the quoted poster is absolutely right, even though EVEO instances load a bit faster when you jump to a new system, they are still just instances.

For the record, I have no problem with instances whattsoever.
In fact, I love the fact that there aren't 100,000 starships orbiting Sol right now, few hours after launch.

but you could go to a system and on "impulse" between all the planets in the system. not circle one planet and thats it
