8. ...but EVE players are still planning on griefing you
EVE players are a… peculiar bunch. Wait, no, that’s not the right phrase. We mean that they’re a bunch of jerks. This isn’t a controversial statement, it’s a badge they wear proudly on their sleeve, joking about how the “nicest EVE player would be an absolute scumbag in any other game.” Some of the best EVE stories we heard from players at Fanfest were about them griefing each other, and this hazing is one they will extend to DUST players in any way they can.
We talked to over a dozen EVE players about this, and every single one of them said that they were planning on finding ways to piss off DUST players. “I think a lot of EVE players are looking for that feeling of power,” said Zorr from NorCorp Enterprises. “Sometimes you squash a bug just because you can.”
David from Tactical Nightmare said that the only thing preventing EVE players from being complete and total jerks is the limitations, though he isn’t going to let that stop him. “If there is any opportunity I will find it and maybe kill my own teammates,” David said with a smile. “I don’t know what I can do. Just extort some money or whatever. I will try to come up with something.”
Some, however, were actually anticipating some of this scumbaggery floating upwards, laughing about how the average Call of Duty player should be able to hold his own against EVE’s griefers. “They’ll be able to teach us a thing or two,” he laughed. “They’re not carebears themselves.”
