First, a few common misconceptions.
1: You can make money playing EVE.
There is no legitimate way to make money playing EVE. The only way people get the conversion ratio they do is from an item called a PLEX. PLEX can be bought directly from EVE's developers for real currency. This PLEX can then be sold in game for ISK, the EVE currency. There is no way to sell ISK for real money, only to pay real money for a PLEX which is then converted into ISK.
2: These giant battles are fun.
There is a feature in EVE called Time Dilation. Time Dilation restricts the speed of actions in a given area depending on the number of ships present. This is mostly due to EVE being such an old game that it just isn't built to handle such huge events without this system in place. This slows down every action (which is already translated from input with a built in delay of nearly a full second) to a snail's pace, causing battles that might take 20 minutes without it to take 4 hours.
Now my own personal experiences.
EVE is... an interesting beast. When I started playing it I started at the same time as a group of friends, there were about 5 of us. We quickly found that the quickest way to get anything done was by joining with a player corporation. We did so and played happily together and made new friends along the way. One of these friends accused the Corp's leader of stealing money or something stupid like that, we believed the accuser and left to join his defected allies.
After a week or two he started acting really strangely, and ordered the whole Corp to up and move everything to nullsec (EVE space is divided between highsec, lowsec, and nullsec space, with a gradually decreasing NPC space-police presence in each one respectively before reaching nullsec, which has no space-police at all). At this point almost nobody was equipped or trained to deal with anything we might encounter in nullsec besides him, we protested and he acquiesced, giving us a month to train up weapon skills and learn how to fly new ships. About 2 days later however, he lured one of the more experienced members into his most expensive ship under the guise of a weapon damage test and destroyed it deliberately. We all said "fuck this guy" and left, causing him to fly into an incoherent rage and declare war on our new Corp, which was woefully unprepared for his laser-focused anger.
Remember how I said EVE is a strange beast? In most MMOs if someone is mad at you for one reason or another you can block them and never hear from them again, 9 times out of 10 this is the end of it. EVE however has no such qualms over harassment and is (with minor exceptions) 100% PVP focused. This means that if someone wants you dead they are able to repeatedly declare war on your corporation and kill you without fear of reprisal from the space-cops because intercorp war is beyond their jurisdiction, causing even highsec space to become a stressful waiting game of watching the zone's chat to see who is in it so you know if you need to be booking it back to a port ASAP for fear of getting blown out of the sky by an angry manchild.
He gave up after far too long, maybe quitting the game, who knows. After this I joined an Alliance, several corps joined together, and had a genuinely terrible time as most of the friends I had started with had quit by this point.
Very long story short (sorry!), I cannot, in good faith, recommend EVE. It isn't what you expect it to be, and unless you've been playing for a year already, isn't anything more than waiting for a skill bar to increase with no input from you. There are better ways to waste time. I promise.
I'm so sorry for the tirade, but I need to tell people about this "game".

uuuugh i really don't know how to take that review. Like, for one i can see the game has some obvious flaws. But on another that whole story with that shitty guy is the kind of thing that still holds my interest in the game. I mean, in what other game can you get that kind of crazy drama and be able to play it out like that? it just seems so interesting.

I was hitting the character limit for that comment so I had to cut my experience with the alliance short, but just to put it simply, most of the people I met who were playing for a long time were toxic assholes who were so intolerant of new players because it had been so long since they started they had lost all empathy.
It IS an interesting thing to try out with friends, I'd never wish trying it on your own on my worst enemy though. If it goes on sale at some point, sure, test it out, I can't even come close to saying that what happened to me will happen to literally anyone else.
Another thing I feel I should expand on is the way you get skill points.
You get them by selecting what you want to train and turning the game off. No input from you is required besides choosing what to train, nothing you can do increases the speed beyond a set cap. It will be literal months before you can fly anything close to even being considered good, years before something great. There was a comment somewhere in here from someone who has been playing for 3 years and can't fly the highest class ship yet (Titan class).
Like I said, it's a strange beast, and there's nothing like it, with its goods and bads.
