CCP has put out a new EVE Online trailer using voice coms from actual in-game operations. The result gives you a sense of what the high points of the game are.
EVE Online can be a boring game. You can spend a long time with tedious mechanics and annoying people and wonder what others see in the game. And then one of these sorts of moments comes and something big happens, something that changes the game for you. You make a big score. You with a desperate battle. You escape that gate camp against the odds. An operation goes off as planned, or goes horribly wrong. And the hook is set. Then you go sit on that titan or duck into that low sec system or camp that gate or shoot that tower, not knowing whether or not the operation will be a snooze or another of those peaks. And even if the op is dull, it *could* have been one of those ops, and you would have hated to miss it.
