Hello, guys. I don't know if some of you still remember me, as it's a long time since my last post, but I came back to Lotro as well. Are you guys still playing at Meneldor? If you are, search for a Minstrel called "Tobiassamett" ;-)

Hmmmm... well, though i obviously disagree with the "eve is horrible" part i would have to agree that it is one of the least beginner-friendly games. It has gotten better, but the tutorials still suck, and unless you disable the notifications they pop up in all sorts of untimely annoying places. The UI isnt very intuitive at first, though once you've got the hang of it it does make sense.
Eve's biggest obstacle as far as people getting past their first month or two is probably that there is no direction. Whatever you want to do (within the loose confines of the program) you do it. Its very different from the vast majority of games, where the game gives you objectives and you pursue them. In EVE you have to make your own.
What I am most curious about is that you and "everyone you know" thought the political aspect was childish. Could you explain why? or is it the idea of fighting over fake "land" in general is childish to you? It doesnt seem, by the way you described it, that you put the time into the game to be active in the political landscape.
