You apparently didn't try PVP, which is core point of EvE. But, yes, it takes time to get skills, but as I said, they are not that important as you may think. Player skill and experience are more important that you think. I admit EvE is not easy to get into, but when you do, it offers most. You chose what you want to do, manufacturing, science, doing pve missions, science and research, exploring, joining large aliance and fighting for regions of space, etc whatever you like or all at once. I prefer classless, levelless, system in EvE than grinding for xp in order to reach max lvl, where real game starts. I hate WoW and it's clones where endgame consist of chasing gear, pvp have no point or consequences besides said gear. CCP games showed that different, niche game that doesn't try to please everyone like WoW can be successfull.
But to each his own. I don't want to persuade anyone, as you I just want to give counter opinion to SWTOR, WOW and similar games. TheSpore said he is bored with games like that, and I, after everything seen, do put SWTOR in WOW clone category. You may not agree, but I do have experience in games, and I do follow alot information about them, so I think my opinion is as valid as yours.
IMO, it's shame that games don't try to put some new concepts instead of trying to take over WoW concept and take it's playerbase. Of all new MMOs that are coming, I put most hope into GW2, at least it has dynamic and interesting concept and it differs from holy class trinity(dps, tank, support). At least that's what they are saying, we 'll have to see.
