Its been years since i first fell in love with Eve Online. Since her latest expansion and updates, i can proudly say that during my revisit, there were tons of new aspects, as well as features to this true Sandbox MMO.
I was playing this game before world of warcraft and its true sandbox nature is what really caught me. First launched in 2003, it captured a consistent 20k CCU’s on the server at any given time. That’s a lot of dedication for a game that has real-time circumstances that could arise in a flash and just like that, leave you without a ship, and pod killed.

Oh look! They have a recruit-a-friend program! https://secure.eveonline.com/recruit/
