From my eyes I see EVE as a paradise: Hardcore learning curve, hardcore survival, complex crafting & resource gathering, as well as some other things. I didn't try yet the 14-days free trial, but near-present I'll, the subscription model has never been much appealing to me, though EVE seems to be worthy of its payment method. I want to hear an EVE gamer's perspective of the game and what makes the game unique for them.
