    Elite: Dangerous vs EVE Online opinions
    Some users think Elite: Dangerous is a great alternative to EVE Online, some don't.

    Combat, trading and exploration are in this game, the universe is very vast and good looking, however the feature "powerplay" is not able to make E:D as dynamic as EVE online

    It is largely modeled after Eve, the robot fitting is similar, the modules, the industry and economy. There are some notable tweaks, and combat is more realtime with line-of-sight and obstacles. Otherwise it has be lauded as the only, and most consistent alternative to eve online. Often called: Eve with Mechs, Eve on Robot Planet, Eve-lite, etc.
