Jumpgate Evolution is not one I am interested in at all. It seems very shallow and following too many MMO standards that I find boring and past their prime, such as multiple servers, seperated PvE and PvP, possible instancing, meaningless combat penalties, etc. But when Andrew strolled in and pointed me to this Q&A article, specifically the second to last question, I had to respond. (Empahsis added)
OP by SpeechMan:Dear Mr Peterscheck: Frack Off. To say that you either have to a) not know that Eve routinely handles space battles of multiple hundreds of ships which means you haven't done your homework, or b) know that and lie through your teeth to attract the ignorant masses as much as possible to your already floundering-in-development game (push back release dates much?). Either way it makes you an ass.
So far what we've seen, JGE will have PvP system which is mix between JGC and WAR (including renown points) , control system that's mix between JGC and freelancer, etc.
I'd ike to hear about things that haven't been seen in MMOs before, could you name 3 such things in JGE?
1. Active mission updates on the fly - i.e. more like space games instead of MMOs.
2. Really large battles (100+ ships).
3. Action space combat instead of a dice roll or RPG style system (I know other MMOs have done this, but I think we're doing it better).
Now, I'll allow the possibility that your response was poorly worded and you misunderstood the question and you think that your game brings these three qualities together combined that no other game has, but I still call bullshit. Eve's missions may not be the most exciting part of the game but they do have parameters that change mid-mission and active updates. And this "action space combat" shit probably refers to joystick twitch fighter piloting, but I assure you from my perspective that Eve has ship classes that require on good piloting and battles with fast reaction speeds that match combat from the X-Wing/TIE Fighter days.
But ultimately, I think you're just full of shit and lying through your teeth. You've officially moved JGE from my "ignore" list to my "disparage" list.
