In all honesty, I think it will be better than players spending countless dollars on a mobile game to actually be untouchable. With this being a sandbox, and all of the strats you’ll be able to use, it might not be to EVE Echoes Items bad. Yeah I don’t think it’s legit multi boxers to be concerned about. The concern for me personally will be botters as well as the mechanics in Eve Echoes to keep them in check. This will be a concern for your own market.
Eve Echoes seems to check a number of features, including whether it is running in an emulator, and if the device is rooted. You may find that with this recent evaluation the devs did not enforce any restrictions, but may possibly chooses to enforce this as it goes live. Also it might be worth noting that Discord can conduct voice in the background, at least on Android, so not certain your criticism on this is valid. Finally, Eve Echoes thrives on, and is driven by cooperation. It would take months to concentrate in one area of the skills tree, and ancient game generalisation can help advance, eventually you have to decide what it is that you’re at Eve Echoes.
It rewards more organised classes by it’s very nature and game mechanisms that are entire. If you don’t want to be part of that, then you’ll be ratting, mining or exploring, which makes money, and buying what you need. The devs have stated they will not be cracking down on emulator usage. (Like if people are having trouble running Eve Echoes on their emulator, they’re not likely to”fix Eve Echoes” or offer some support.) But in summary, it’s game on for emulator use.
Provided that they continue with the constraints on Alpha clones, I do not really see much of an issue with it. One thing that really”worries” me is using alts to rat, which might inflate ISK a whole lot.
