EVE online is nothing short of a massive success in the MMO gaming world. Re-leased by a little known Icelandic game developer (Crowd Control Productions, or CCP), back in 2003 to very little fanfare, and to just a handful of dedicated players (around 30,000). It has since, been a game, that showcased how a focus on player demands, can actually benefit sales in a game, as well as building the lore and universe entirely around a background of development initiated content, but then forwarded by emergent, unscripted, player driven narrative. It is, as we would classify in the gaming industry, a Sandbox MMO.
Morphing into a AAA Title
EVE is one of those games that are under the radar for most people, or at least that WAS the case previously, because now major media outlets, which show cases the massive in-game wars that players generate, cover EVE constantly. It was an unexpected success, being the only game that developed INTO an AAA title, and one that has experienced consistent growth over the 13 years it has been running. A space-simulator sandbox isn’t exactly a common foray for game developers.
With its limitless exploration of thousands of galaxies, wormholes, and the grand darkness of space, players will be treated to and endless supply of gameplay, provided that each gamer themselves is motivated and creative enough to develop their own character stories, and player events that involve mining, trading, faction-based combat, and even piracy. Customize hundreds of ships with near-unlimited options for parts - that specialize in combat, trading, or exploration, and with combat akin to real-time RPGs crossed with a bit of rock-paper-scissors, the action of the game, while slower than others, is extremely cerebral and requires a lot of tactical planning, ship knowledge, and a whole lot of patience. So much patience is required, that it is often noted that EVE has probably the steepest learning curves of any MMO currently on the market, being mocked as simply “spreadsheets in space”. EVE Online’s combat is one of the most rewarding experiences gamers will ever encounter in an MMO.
But perhaps the biggest draw to EVE isn’t the game itself but the idea of how the game is driven by the players. Scamming is seen as a legitimate activity within the game by developers, so long as no one truly gets ripped off in real life. This is because, as a sandbox, anything goes in EVE Online and the only thing that will limit your play is your imagination and determination. From time to time, stories of intrigue, political machinations, backstabbing, and infiltration surface on the web and we learn about how folks truly play the game. No, I’m not talking about following a quest line or a story quest - far from it.
I’m talking about real people with real intentions that evolve into meaningful interactions. Have you ever heard of the Guiding Hand Social Club heist of 2005, where a mercenary outfit pulled a fantastic Ocean’s 11 over a powerful corporation player alliance (What about the Trillion Isk Ponzi scheme in the form of the infamous Phaser Inc. investment scheme? EVE is literally the best game for social interaction of the highest level that reflects our real lives. This method of gaming has coined an all-new concept in the world of online gaming, called “meta-gaming”. Many people inside of PlayerAuctions play EVE, and don’t even both undocking their ships, but instead role play through the massive possibilities of running player alliances, acting as organization diplomats, or even running in-game events.
EVE Ships, Modules, Blueprints, Minerals, Implants, etc. are Yours for the Taking!
But to enjoy any of these things, a subscription must be maintained and that can become very expensive in the long run, especially if you’re planning on playing for a very long time. Fortunately, CCP Games released something called EVE Plex, an item that you can use to add 30 days of subscription that you can buy with Isk, EVE Online’s currency. Unfortunately, this can go for very high prices amongst the player base due to its popularity, sometimes becoming even more expensive than the regular monthly subscription, but this rarely occurs. It can be hard to find the right seller with the right price that gives you more bang for your buck. EVE Online Plex is actually a very interesting concept in the gaming world, because it actually allows for the in-game virtual currency to become a real-world open loop currency. Meaning, that the in-game currency can actually be traded against real-world fiat currency. It is publisher sponsored RMT, but people do not necessarily say that out loud, due to the taboo associated with real money trading.
Next, to be able to partake in any of those activities like exploration, piracy, or those awesome space heists, you’ll need a specialized rig or several specialized EVE Online ships. These are common, of course, but rarer ships are obviously harder to come by and it’s almost always the rarer ships that are the best EVE ships in the meta-game right now. This could, however, take a lot of time because these ships cost a lot of Isk and you may end up quitting EVE before ever getting to them.
And now, with the release of Citadels, players themselves can now hone their own private space stations to their own liking, even to deploying them in high security space. But these come at great cost, with the Blueprint Originals (BPOS) for the Keepstar running 700 billion, or $9,000 in real world value.

PlayerAuctions presents a very exciting opportunity for the in game world and economy of EVE online, because we offer a marketplace where people can go beyond game account trades, or even ISK trading. The in-game economy is so large, due to the fact, that nearly the entirety of the in-game economy is based on player output. From mining minerals, to producing planetary commodities, to producing tier 1 , 2, and officer modules, to ultimately producing the all-important internet spaceships that people roam around in.
But EVE over the years has expanded its database of in-game items, many times over, up to the production of Starbase/Outposts, which were notoriously expensive to produce in game, and took MONTHS to complete. Providence, a region in EVE is notoriously famous for being the one region of null-sec space by having nearly every system in its jurisdiction with each of these expensive adventures being launched by the players themselves.
