Nothing wrong with EVE... it's a great MMO. But it's not everyone's taste since everything is so cut-throat with player-driven factions, a strong PvP focus (PvE is horrid), and never being able to see your character. That's why the people who don't play it just don't like it. But it has a very clean and efficient client with true freedom for a space/sci-fi MMO.

I agree. EVE is very open-ended, while STO will be much more restrictive. I hope that future expansions correct to some extent.

People are making a lot of comparisons, but in the end, STO is a very different breed MMO than EVE.
