Ex-Wow players are pretty normal for Eve, from my experience. Eve has a very nice community to start with - in high security space, most everyone is nice and watches out for the newbies. Descend into lower security space, and you'll find the most cutthroat community in any MMO. The fact that the game world is so large that it can house different communities on a just a single server is what makes the game appeal to me, despite the fact that traveling through very similar environments over and over can get boring. The problem is that you really have to know someone already playing EVE to get into it. For newbies that don't know anyone, and are looking to try the game, I would recommend the corporation Eve University. It's a player-run university dedicated to showing players the ropes on various professions, and it can be found in most regions of high-security space (i know for sure that they exist in Gallente and Caldari space). Also, if anyone starts playing, do your best not to get sucked into mining and mission running. Play WoW for your PVE content, play Eve for your PVP.

The problem is that the majority of the space is space. It's easy to store "nothing", so to speak. A few random meteors and asteroids. Separating people by defining the distance between them in the space.Not disparaging your game, but just the "all on one server" aspect isn't that impessive given the kind of game it is. That combined with the fact that the population isn't as large.

That is actually one of the problems I have with the game, Drakkenfyre. I was going to include it in my OP, but I figured I'd droned on long enough already. The serious problem I have with EVE is that everything just looks the same. Taking my products and loot in to Jita to sell (Jita is the main hub star system for most buyers and sellers in the game) doesn't take long, but it's extremely painful nonetheless, because you're spending forever traveling through space without any real scenery. The community is pretty great, though - my small corp is currently locked in a war with a pirate corporation that keeps shooting down our ships, and my friend's corporation is in the middle of a desperate manhunt for the guy who infiltrated them and then robbed them blind. Dealing with the politics and strategy is fun, but running around in bland space is not.
