EVE Online is a space-based Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game, created by CCP Games. Players take the role of a new breed of elite spaceship pilots - "capsuleers", named for the mechanism they use to control their ships, in a far distant future setting where four galactic empires, numerous player corporations/alliances and a number of NPC factions vie for control and influence.
Hosted on one single server, rather than dividing the player base into different 'stand alone' worlds, the universe of EVE Online contains around 7,500 solar systems, each with their own planetary system with asteroid belts. EVE's record for logged-in players currently stands at over 50,000 simultaneous connections.
Perhaps partially inspired by Origin's 'Wing Commander: Privateer' (not to mention the old 8-bit game 'Elite'), EVE gives new players a ship, a handful of credits ("ISK"  * which just happens to be the currency code for the Icelandic króna ), and a very large sandbox to play in. It's possible to be a pirate, a stock-market mogul, a mercenary, a trader, an explorer, a miner, a manufacturer, or any other profession that you can justify within the game mechanics. Not to mention what you can do for fun in your free time.
EVE occasionally pops up in the gaming press (and sometimes the mainstream press) for extraordinary feats of sabotage, theft and other devious exploits carried out by a player or group of players. Feats like this that might get the responsible group banned in about any other MMO are legal gameplay in EVE and these events become player-generated Crowning Moments of Awesome. On the other hand, Eve is known for having not so much a learning curve as a learning cliff◊. One EVE blogger/podcaster calls Eve "a sandbox with landmines" due to the often brutal PVP focus of the game. It keeps some potential players away, but many players see it as a good thing, on the assumption that you have to be at least halfway competent to survive in the game.
The ongoing backstory of EVE is written in regular in-character news articles as well as semi-weekly Chronicles and a few short stories. In June 2008 the first book of the game, EVE: The Empyrean Age was published, documenting the behind the scenes events that led up to the war between the empires in the game expansion of the same name. Many of the tropes that reference NPC characters come from these sources.
EVE is the first online game to have its own democratically elected player oversight committee, known as the Council of Stellar Management, the members of which serve 6-month terms. The CSM is flown to CCP's Iceland headquarters, where they meet with CCP engineers, present players' concerns, and discuss future features and expansions of the game.

Mind Screw: The whole of the Black Mountain storyline.
Alts. Just alts. You could in theory be chatting to three or four separate people at one time, only they're all the same person and you have no way of knowing it!
This is also sometimes used in scams - posting with alts to make it look like there's far more support for your "investment opportunity" than there really is.

Vendor Trash: Trade goods, though some are used in running starbases and building outposts.
Rogue Drone alloys are Reprocessing Plant Trash. Dropped low-grade ship modules are also frequently shunted to the reprocessing plant. However reprocessing yields minerals which are the backbone of manufacturing, so minerals always sell well.

Dramatic Space Drifting: A major fleet fight could leave hundreds of wrecks in a space, ranging from the metal jumble of support ships to the drifting husks of capital ships, right down to the corpses of pilots who got podded. Of course these fields are often salvaged for loot and the corpses scooped as trophies.

Player Versus Player

comment
Player Versus Player: ALL of the game - EVE arguably stands for Everyone Vs Everyone.
As a friend of This Troper, who is a longtime player, puts it "PVP in EVE is consensual, you consent when you leave the station."
Considering market manipulation is a very real possibility in EVE and has been used as a weapon, arguably you don't even have to leave the station to be engaging in PVP.
Proof of the market manipulation part.
Referred to as "PVP Economics".
As the game has continued, the dev's inclination to emphasise ship combat to the exclusion of all else has also become obvious to the extent that some have nicknamed the game "Counter-Strike In Space".
Arguably, it could now be renamed Goonswarm Vs Everyone. Goonswarm's sheer numbers and approach makes the chances of any other alliance threatening them virtually nil. This means that EVE is now a game controlled by it's own griefers.
Not anymore: Goonswarm has officially disbanded because they can't pay their bills. Karma's a bitch.

Glass Cannon - Destroyers are this against small ships. Battleships fitted for fleet combat are possibly a better example, being actually able to destroy larger ships.
Destroyers are SUPPOSED to be this against small ships. Unfortunately, Destroyers are currently mostly hideously underpowered so they're not fulfilling their role properly.

comment
Global Currency: ISK, amusingly its also the acronym for the currency of Iceland, where CCP is headquartered. Justified thusly: ISK is the currency of space, as agreed upon by the empires through CONCORD. Planets, and indeed countries on said planets, are all implied to have currency of their own; ISK was just created for space because the awesome amounts of normal currency that would be required otherwise. Anyone planetside can retire and live comfortably for the rest of their lives on a few ISK.
One mission involves getting a bunch of cash to a certain group to ransom some prisoners. "Fortunately, they asked for planetary currency which is nearly worthless in ISK." You're given an item to transfer to them; "A lot of money".

Everything would be better without BoB.
On February 2, 2009, Band of Brothers was disbanded, in a particularly ignominious and unglorious manner, as one of its top directors - a certain 'Haargoth Agamar' - left Bo B with a sizable chunk of assets and technically dissolved the alliance in one stroke, betraying them for their worst rivals in Goon Swarm, and in the process turning off all of their best system defences for a month. Its member corporations have since re-formed under a new flag, but even if the members themselves are keeping a brave face, the community treats it as a devastating blow, and the ensuing war cost Bo B about 80% of the space they used to control. Many consider the alliance's days of power numbered, and most are still rejoicing.

In Universe, the manufacture of drugs, including combat boosters, s trade that a few players have taken up. CONCORD is allowed to shoot you for carrying contraband (but actually detecting them is chancy). Most pirate factions have fingers in the black market and Intaki Syncidate, though not pirates, depend on the black market for their livelihood since when they were kicked out of the Federation, they were forbidden to settle planets.

Griefer: As you may have gathered from the rest of the article, this game is a griefer's paradise, and most of the player base loves it that way. As long as you don't use a hacked client or a known and classified exploit, any method you can find to unfairly kill players or steal their hard earned goods is allowed, including finding ways to subvert the anti-pvp measures in the beginning, "safe" areas.

And The Fandom Rejoiced: Opinions are a little split over the disbandment of BoB and Goonswarm. The endgame was basically split into two groups — those players in a Goonswarm corp, and those players in Bo B. Both have bounced back fairly quickly under different names, after lots of land changing hands.

Inferred Holocaust
 make a to do send a pm add to watchlist drop watch go to watchlist EVE Online / int_2be82d03
comment
Inferred Holocaust: It is written in the storyline that NPC ships have a crew as many as ten times the size of that of a player ship, meaning that every NPC battleship one kills is as a many as ten thousand people dead. And it is not uncommon to kill twenty or thirty such ships in a night! Hence the above Heroic Sociopath entry counts even for those players who never fire at another Player Character.
Every player ship (except small frigates and shuttles) has a crew. If your ship blows up but you survive in your pod? Well, that crew is gone. Although the crew is said to be significantly less than non-capsuleer ships by an order of magnitude, you're still killing hundreds or thousands of people when you lose, say, that carrier ship you just stupidly flew into low-security space.
A couple of recent Chronicle stories better establish that the non-capsuleer crew do have and use escape pods, which may soften this blow.
Worse, some people make a practice of self-destructing ships to collect the insurance money (see also: Scrappy Mechanic). You can imagine some of the crueler capsuleers not waiting for the crew to get to lifeboats. If you get stuck in wormhole space without scan probes, this may be the only way out.

Corrupt Corporate Executive: The entire Caldari government. Thank God they're also somewhat competent. A reform movement on this front is a big part of the current Caldari storyline, though for storyline fans, the changes are contentious. And time has suggested that the bickering between megacorp factions is as lively as ever.
Also, the leader and upper management of any larger player corporation is essentially forced to become one of these just to survive.

Power Perversion Potential: This Troper has witnessed several discussions on whether each new clone a female got would be a virgin or not...and has also seen others regarding whether jumpclones need to be exactly like the original host body or could have...additions. Or be totally different.
In-game, you can't leave your capsule until the Walking In Stations expansion comes out SOON?, so the speculation is almost moot. But the game fiction tells us it's possable.
Some ship designs, such as the Gallente Thorax-class cruiser, would not be out of place in miniature form and sold in fine "entertainment" shops, If You Know What I Mean. The Gallente being sufficiently liberated in that regard, they probably are too.
It even came in pink.

Only Mostly Dead: Players who die have their consciousness instantly transferred into a clone body. Technically, the person doesn't even die. When the capsule detects a hull breach in the pod, a probe injects itself into the capsuleer, scans the capsuleer's brain, and transmits the information almost instantly. All they've done, really, is swap bodies before the body in the capsule dies.

Unlike trading hubs in most games which feature a cluster of NPC shops, there's nothing special about Jita except its location (location location). It became a trading hub through players following economic pressure.

More Dakka: Specialty of the Minmatar race.
The Nagalfar class Dreadnought has guns that fire shells the size of semi trucks FOUR at a time
The Vagabond class Heavy Assault Cruiser is typically fitted with 5 pairs of Gatling Guns that shoot 220mm Shells
The Rifter, a frigate around the size of a medium/large aircraft, normally fits 3 pairs of 200mm autocannons.
A lesser example would be Gallente ships configured for blasters; short range, high dammage guns. A Thorax cruiser can peak around 700 damage per second, a pack of them flown by the Star Fraction alliance is fameous for taking out a Band of Brothers tournament fleet setup they boasted was unbeatable. And God help you if you land in blaster range of a Megatrhon battleship.
of course, the mere existence of a 6-barreled, 2500mm autocannon kind of proves this point.

In Universe beliefs about this vary. The Amarr believe that the soul does not make the transfer and that clones are an abomination, if a necessary one - families of the nobility are forbidden from cloning (Jamyl Sarum's "miraculous return" to save Amarr after her ritual suicide in the Secession Trials has to be danced around very carefully). The Intaki (a sub-culture of the Gallente) dabbled in consciousness transfer for centuries as part of their religious beliefs (think Reincarnation of a sort); their scientists made many of the advances in cloning tech, including Jump Clones. And so on.

City Guards: The Concord Fleet, who will warp in and destroy any player that breaks their laws in high-security space (aka a "Concorddoken", delivered by "Pwncord"). CCP considers evading CONCORD's retribution to be an exploit due to their extreme power, and the overall fact that they'd be horribly ineffective City Guards if a player could avoid the repercussions of doing stupid crap in CONCORD space.
Concord is so strict. Pirates have convinced orca pilots to rep them, then fired on someone(sometimes the orca) and gotten both concorded. Pirate for the obvious reason. Orca for assisting the pirate, even if the orca was fired on.

Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: When Curatores Veritatis Alliance was disbanded by a hacker, fleets from all over came to their home region to protect it, even their sworn enemies, Ushra'Khan. On the forums, people from UK hoped that CCP would reverse the disbanding (which they did) because, although they want to win and see CVA gone, they want to do it fairly: by beating the snot out of them.

The original settlers of Gallente Prime were at least a degree or two removed from France itself, having lived in Tau Ceti before migrating to New Eden. As well, the sect that the Amarr descend from are heavily implied to have been excommunicated by that era's "Universal Catholic Church."

Ruined FOREVER: Every single patch, expansion pack, dev blog, new payment option, spat of alliance drama, influx of new players, or minor fluctuation in the average temperature of Iceland is heralded as the death of EVE.
The latest would be Dust 514, an online FPS that will be designed to interact directly with Eve itself. That means victories and defeats in Dust 514 having a real impact on things going on up in capsuleer space. Cue some capsuleers lamenting that their space sovereignty might soon depend on mouth-breathing Halo fanboys, as this would be how they view any potential FPS community.
Which is fair enough. Just look at the hostility of the EVE community to World Of Warcraft and its players. Don't mention it on the forums unless you want to be flamed A LOT. EVE is FAR more complicated than most MM Os, which are themselves generally an order of magnitude above FPSes (and yes, This Troper does play and enjoy FPSes as well as MM Os). The main issue is when CCP mentioned about how these console users would be on the same forums as EVE players.
And to be completely honest, what really got up a lot of EVE players' noses was the announcement that Dust 514 would be a console exclusive game, when EVE is about as PC as games can get.

Gameplay and Story Segregation
 make a to do send a pm add to watchlist drop watch go to watchlist EVE Online / int_4d4f114a
comment
Gameplay And Story Segregation (Frequently averted. Things such as PC immortality, speed differences between gameplay and background story, etc. are described as publicly available technologies with the consequences being explored in depth.)
A CCP-published short story even explains the player character's ability to customize their own avatar — as the new face being surgically removed from one of a group of slaves, numerous enough to give capsuleers an ample selection, who are then forced to wear a porcelain mask for the rest of their lives.
That said, CCP is not always speedy on the uptake. It took them nearly a week to notice that the Caldari had captured nearly all of the Gallente faction warfare systems (including a planet important to the storyline) and way longer for them to do anything about it. Additionally, FW captures currently have no gameplay effect except the system name changing.

We Buy Anything: Averted - the market is almost exclusively player-driven.
Although you can find players willing to buy almost anything. Many low end modules are bought solely for mineral value when reprocessed.
The reprocessing plant itself could be a considered a We Buy Everything, they will reprocess just about any ship/module and give you the minerals in return for taking a percentage unless you have good enough standing with the station owners. they will reprocess anything except non-metallic items really.

Religious And Mythological Theme Naming: Amarr ships named after various religious/mythological concepts, some Caldari ships named after mythological creatures (e.g. Tengu, Kitsune, Phoenix, Chimera), plus a few Minmatar ships named after parts of Norse mythology (Ragnarok, Loki, Sleipnir, Hel, Valkyrie). Minmatar also have the Wolf assault ship, said in the description to be named after 'a mythical beast renowned for its voraciousness'

Space Friction: Some message boards have speculated that EVE space has the viscosity of WD-40. Word Of God says the in-game physics engine is actually based more on fluid dynamics than real zero-g physics.
All There In The Manual that warp drives cause an effect similar to friction. A ship without one could reach any sublight speed with enough acceleration.

Church Militant: Formerly the M.O. of the entire Amarr Empire. However, a fair number elements throughout their society and government, such as the Theology Council, retain this role to varying degrees, such as the elite guard known as Paladins. Under Jamyl Sarum the Amarr have been favoring idealogical warfare, freeing masses of slaves who are frequently indoctrinated with Amarr beliefs, building schools and churches in the Ammatar Mandate instead of subjugating them with force, etc.

Sorting Algorithm Of Evil: More dangerous enemies will only usually appear in lower-security space, but it's possible to get at them right from the start of the game if you so desire. The reason for this is that it becomes impossible for more notorious criminals (and that includes players) to enter high-security space

Fantastic Racism: Justified: Born from blood lineages that stem from thousands of years of adaptation to differing home worlds, Fantastic Racism seems to come as a natural result of these different breeds of humans forming different cultures, which all end up practically diametrically opposed to one another in many regards. Naturally, this just adds more volatility to the already ruthless hyper-capitalistic climate, thus giving pilots more excuses to blow each other to smithereens (as if most needed one).

You Fail Economics Forever: The friendly Pend insurance company will compensate the loss of a ship whether you destroyed it in an accident, were killed by law enforcement perpetrating a terrorist attack, or even if you didn't buy a policy. How they stay in business is one of the mysteries of the Eve universe.
The insurance is only partly failing economics, since the payout you get from an uninsured ship is very small, and is mentioned as being the basic insurance payout (presumably you get basic insurance, while buying the better ones are just upgrades)
Not to mention CCP themselves, who on more than one occasion failed to notice that huge portions of the game economy were based on exploits. (See Game Breaking Bugs)

Blue And Orange Morality: Because they treat bodies as little more than shells and wield spaceships capable of killing tens of thousands of people in a few minutes, any capsuleer who claims to have moral standards will almost inevitably end up like this, even if they don't realize it. A lot of capsuleers avoid this problem by simply not even trying.
Nuclear ammunition for projectile weapons exists in the game, and capsuleers of the same corporation will occasionally fire on or destroy each other "for the lulz" or as training. Consider what this means in terms you may be more familar with: capsuleers will use nuclear weapons for entertainment.

The Chronicle A Beautiful Face deals with a company who has developed the technology to swap faces into anything a person wants. When Walking In Stations (now officially "Incarna") is released this tech will probably be avalible to the player characters to justify character customization.

Weapon Of Mass Destruction: Titan-class motherships can fit a Doomsday Device; each of the four major races in the game have slightly different ones but they all operate on the principle of the Earth Shattering Kaboom (or nearly so). Most commonly deployed against large fleets, especially in Pv P alliance warfare, but the effects when used against a planet are not pretty).
The mysterious superweapon Jamyl Sarum deployed on the Minmatar fleet over Mekhios from her battleship, wiping it out completely and forcing the other two Minmatar fleets to retreat. The nature of the weapon is top secret: it is a reverse-engineered Terran device.
As of Dominion 1.1, Titans have been converted from mobile nukes into single-target Wave Motion Guns.

Serious Business: Several players have spent more on this game than they would on Ferraris. People try to win battles by getting the power cut to their enemies' alliances' computers...in real life.
Corp/Alliance forums and TS/vent servers are attacked or compromised to prevent their use or to gain information.
Some players have 6 or 7 accounts... or more...
Spending large amounts of money on ingame money or items is rare though, since CCP bans anyone caught doing it, with the exception of selling game time codes, which works out as EXTREMELY expensive.... Buying enough codes for a titan or mothership plus fitting would cost thousands of dollars. People have done it though. Large purchases of ISK, particularly when combined with buying a character, are often followed by losing an extremely badly fit capital ship or other expensive ship due to having no idea how to fly it, followed by being laughed at on the forums.
Plus, if you haven't noticed from the intro text, the game has its own goddamned governmental body. Have you ever seen this in any other game!?

Crapsack World

comment
Crapsack World: Although not nearly as bad as some, billions are enslaved by the Amarr Empire and there is nothing anyone can do about it. In the Caldari State you are born into a megacorporation, and if you get fired or quit you will starve to death because no way are you getting another job. The Minmatar Republic has a standard of living comparable to Mexico. Things ain't looking too peachy in the Gallente Federation anymore either since the start of the Empyrian War, between enemy Titans threatening their home system, the rise of a Secret Police to guard loyalty, a brief threat of civil war and dictatorship on the horizon of possibitities and the in-story effect of the Caldari occupying much of their lowsec systems currently. And god help you if you live on a ship or in capsuleer controlled space, because you now have a life expectancy of about five minutes.

comment
Precursors - the humans that settled New Eden via the Eve gate before it collapsed. These may or may not have included (sources are hazy) the four lost civilizations whose artifacts are spread around space: the Yang Jung, the Takmahl, the Talocan and the Sleepers. We don't know what happened to the first two, but the Sleepers and the Talocan somehow got to wormhole space, populated it, and whatever remains puts a hurting on explorers who venture near (see Demonic Spiders). The hints around the cayaclysm that heralded the (re)discovery of wormholes makes you wonder if they planed it.
The Jove technically count; they survived the destruction of the Eve Gate best, and though they still exist, little has been heard from them in a long time. As a species they're threatened by a genetic disease that could wipe them out and last known, they were on the decline.

Anti Poop Socking: Skills are trained in real-time, at a speed based on the player's attributes.
However, the near infinite amount of skills to be trained in this way means that newer players will never be on equal footing with older ones.
This is a total lie, as the number of skills to be trained relating to any single task is very much finite. Focusing on a specific skillset, such as maxing out one's abilities in a particular ship class, can easily result in six-month-old characters who can utterly destroy four-year veterans in single combat.

A.I. Is a Crapshoot

AI Is A Crapshoot: Rogue Drones. Story of the rogue drones is similar to that of Africanized honey bees - the "killer bees"; Research being conducted on more efficient, self-thinking drones to carry out variety of missions by the Gallenteans - few "drone mothers" escape from the research facilities and presto, you've got yourself a galaxy wide pest problem. PROTIP: If your AI is complicated enough to be able to go rogue, avoid giving it the ability to reproduce. Now rogue drones just produce new ones from mined minerals and the recycled ships they destroy. CONCORD now bans research in super-intelligent AI.
Player-controlled drones are stupid bastards too. Older versions of the game had a well-parodied bug in which drones could attack gang (team) members at random when picking new targets.

Response time varies widely depending on system security status, including large areas of empire controlled space with no coverage at all.
Don't let the above think you can get away with anything: official response time for CONCORD ships is between 2 and 20 seconds. If you get CONCOR Ded, you're screwed, make no mistake about it.

Space Is Noisy: Justified in that the sound is actually just the ship simulating the noises that events might make if they were audible. This is supposedly done to prevent a capsuleer from going insane. Since every capsuleer is a mass murderer, well...
To quote the old meme: "EVE has sound?". (Meaning, many players play with the sound off either to save computer cycles or to not interfere with voice coms.)

Back From The Dead: Jamyl Sarum, as well as anyone else with a clone.
Cloning tech is usually described as not something you can just wear as a backpack, but breaks from this exist; it also makes killing off background characters difficult.

Demonic Spiders: The Sleepers. They automatically switch targets to any ship emitting assistance beams for armor/shield/energy/hull, their frigates will switch targets to attack any drones launched. They even metagame, staging the NPC equivalent of a logon trap for capital ships.
Arguably not. They aren't unfair or cheap, they just make the same strategic decisions a player should be making. A player who knows by heart every statistic in the game and never misses a mouse click. And works in perfect sync with their team. And has better items than anyone. Kind of like the Batman of human players.
Sleeper sentry guns especially. The extra firepower you'd expect a stationary gun to have, plus the excellent tracking and range of all Sleeper beam guns, and worst of all no loot!

Fan Nickname: Numerous contractions or respellings of ship names and classes, alliances, and other things. An example can be seen in the entry for City Guards above in relation to being attacked by CONCORD; another version is "Concordokken" based on Memetic Mutation from 8-Bit Theater.

Recycled In Space: Sansha's Nation are Zombies in Space. The Amarr are Space Catholics. The Gallente are Space French Americans the only democracy out of the four empires (although the Jovian government isn't known). The Caldari are Space Megacorps. The Minmatar, between the immigration they're sending to the Gallente and their battles with drug cartels, are Space Mexicans.
The Gallente race are originally French, but the Federation contains multiple races, including some Minmatar immigrants in the fluff, although you can't create a Gallente character from one of the Minmatar races. The Gallente Federation is very similar to America in many ways (see the Eagle Land entry)
The original settlers of Gallente Prime were at least a degree or two removed from France itself, having lived in Tau Ceti before migrating to New Eden. As well, the sect that the Amarr descend from are heavily implied to have been excommunicated by that era's "Universal Catholic Church."

Players with the Archeology skill and tools can recover artifacts and databanks which can be used in building T2 and T3 stuff.

Purely Aesthetic Gender: Justified by the fact that the ability to pilot your ship is determined exclusively by your mental capacity.
Even the Race and Faction you choose during character creation only determines where you start. Anyone can use any item or ship in the game, or fight for any side, once they get the right skills.
Even the starting skill difference has been swept away by the Apocrypha update.

Eagle Land: The Gallente - Everyone watches their TV, listens to their pop music and drinks their soft drinks. They like to bang on about freedom at every possible opportunity. And their government consists of a President, a Senate, and a Supreme Court. Sounds rather like America, except they're French.
And interestingly, they by turns invoke both sides of the trope - the stereotypical Gallente is a full-bore Flavor 2 hedonist (with hints that it gets far crazier than real America ever goes, especially with things like weird plastic surgery being readily available) but the leaders often invoke, and try to live up to, the Flavor 1 ideal.

Names To Run Away From Really Fast: The Thukker Tribe. Thukker Tribe. Also an example of a Punny Name.
Umm, the Brutor Tribe? 7'4" is not considered excessively tall.
Some player pun names adopted from technical glitches; (Node Crash), which was inspired by yet another character named Server Lag, and is first cousin to the character Jump Queue...all things EVE's players fear. Node Crash's player has noted that they inevitably die first in combat against other players, perhaps because of fear she'll invoke her name.
Averted with the players - though some players adopt intimidating names, this has no correlation with their skill or power.

Justified for reasons of practicality, given the number of systems, which can each contain up to 10 planets.
Exception: Major planets of the empire home systems will sometimes have their given name written next to their official numbered designation.

Flame War: On the official forums, the Intergalactic Summit (IGS) forum is entirely in-character. This frequently results in roleplayed flame wars between the Amarr and Minmatar players. Or the Gallente and the Caldari players. Or the pirates vs the non pirates or the transhumanist anarchists vs. any of the empire supporters, or...
On the same, venture into "Corporation, Alliance, and Organization Discussion" (CAOD) at your own risk. It's player politics (particularly those of the space-holding alliances) with large doses of trolling and Serious Business.

Continuing Is Painful: Forgot to keep your clone and insurance up-to-date? You can lose weeks of training and billions of ISK with some ships. Particularly a cap ship or T2/T3. Or if you have faction/officer fittings. Or if you have a set of pirate implants in your pod.
But if you prepare for it properly beforehand, Death Is A Slap On The Wrist. There is a reason why "Don't fly what you can't afford to lose" is popular advice.
New "Tech 3" ships in the game's March 2009 expansion, Apocrypha, cost players skill points in the skills required for the subsystems of those ships if they get blown up with the player inside. At worst, it takes about 5 days to train back up. How much this hurts you depends on your understanding of opportunity cost (time lost training subsystem skills you could be training something else).
Losing a T2, T3 or faction ship is ALWAYS painful because none of them are cost-effective (they can be 2 or 3 times as powerful as a T1 equivalent, but usually cost in excess of 10 times as much) and the insurance payouts on them don't even BEGIN to cover the cost.

Powered By A Forsaken Child: It is quite possible that clones of capsuleers might not contain their original consciousness, but it's implied that most people who use cloning don't care anyway.
Possible, right. CCP apparently haven't read The Origin of Consciousness. . .
In Universe beliefs about this vary. The Amarr believe that the soul does not make the transfer and that clones are an abomination, if a necessary one - families of the nobility are forbidden from cloning (Jamyl Sarum's "miraculous return" to save Amarr after her ritual suicide in the Secession Trials has to be danced around very carefully). The Intaki (a sub-culture of the Gallente) dabbled in consciousness transfer for centuries as part of their religious beliefs (think Reincarnation of a sort); their scientists made many of the advances in cloning tech, including Jump Clones. And so on.

Magnificent Bastard (Everyone involved in doing this.)
Although there is a strong contender in the Goonswarm spy who got director control of Band of Brothers, collapsing the largest and oldest alliance in EVE and unleashing a Critical Existence Failure on their sovereign holdings in space.

Awesome But Impractical: The various titan doomsday devices, which have a face melting base attack power of two million damage. The flip side is that it immobilizes your ship for half a minute and offlines cloaking, jump drives, and the doomsday itself for ten, making the titan pilot all but a sitting duck.

Color Coded For Your Convenience: Each faction has a color scheme for all their ships. The thumbnails for each ship even use a nebula background of the ship's faction's color.
For icons: Gallente are green, Caldari are blue, Minmatar are maroon, and Amarr are gold.
For ships: Caldari ships are typically gunmetal gray, Minmatar a dirty brown, Amarr shiny gold, and Gallente like silver or grey with baby blue/turquoise detailing, Jovians are green (but rarely seen and not accessable to players). Tech 2 variants are typically color-coded based on the NPC manfacturer.

Future Imperfect: The premise of Eve's backstory is that humans emigrated from their crowded, overpopulated systems to the New Eden star cluster through a wormhole. The wormhole disastrously collapsed, cutting the colonists off from Earth and leading to a die-back of civilization. Fast forward almost 20,000 years: Earth is all but a myth and some strange artifacts and the humans of New Eden have had to rediscover most advanced technology including spaceflight FTL travel.

Used Future: The Minmatar, massively Many of their ship designs look so haphazard that they are often joked as being held together by duct tape, or called "flying junk-heaps" by those who mock them. Those who like them declare "In Rust We Trust" and "never underestimate the power of Tech 2 duct tape". Some of the newer Minmatar ships have moved away from the more haphazard 'held together with duct tape' style of other ones (such as the Hurricane battlecruiser, the Maelstrom battleship, the Loki strategic cruiser and all the capital ships, which have a very definite style).
In the backstory, the Minmatar were once very technologically savvy (but didn't develop interstellar drives) and the enslavement by the Amarr hindered their advancement considerably. When the Minmatar rebellion came around, they had to use what they had, so early Minmatar ships are not suited for prolonged warfare and battles of the line, relying on hit and run tactics and overwhelming numbers. In the current time, the Sebiestor and Thukker tribes foster some of the best engineers in the cluster.

Fantasy: In spite of being a Sci-Fi game, most of the game's factions name their ships and NPCs with some kind of mythical or fantasy-themed naming scheme. Part of this is due to Translation Convention: the Caldari don't know what a Raven is, for example, but they name that battleship after the bird with traits that the 21st century players would associate with ravens.
The Gallente Federation names all their ships after Greek and Mesopotamian deities or descriptive latin words.
The Amarr Emprire names all their ships after terms with Christian connotations
The Minmatar Republic names all their ships after either forces of nature, violent acts, weapons, or Norse Mythology, plus a few Earth animals (One ship, called the Wolf is described as "Named after a mythical beast renowned for its voraciousness")
The Caldari State gives most of its ships bird names, with a few mythical creatures scattered around. All of its NPCs have Japanese and Finnish themed names.
Sansha's Nation and the Equilibrium of Mankind name all their NPCs after demons, monsters, and cultists.
The Blood Raiders name all their NPCs after religious titles and ghosts.
The Angel Cartel names all its ships after...Angels of course.

Macross Missile Massacre: The only adequate description for the new Caldari and Minmatar Doomsday Weapons.
The old Minmatar doomsday probably counts too.
All races can use missiles but the Caldari especially like them and have dedicated missile boats. This becomes most obvious when up against a squad of Caldari NP Cs.

Ramming Always Works
 make a to do send a pm add to watchlist drop watch go to watchlist EVE Online / int_d643d0e8
comment
Ramming Always Works: Mostly averted. You can bump your ship into things and neither object will be scratched, attributed to shields actually working as advertised. However you can change the direction and velocity of an opponent's ship by applying sufficient ramming force. This enables the use of "bumping" as a combat tactic, where you ram your target in order to keep them out of range of the stargate or station docking ring (and thus prevent escape).
God help you if your station's shields have been sabotaged though (a fact only alluded to in The Novel). See Dropped a Bridge Mothership On Him, above. Does not apply on a ship whose shields have been depleted however.

Two-D Space: Ships can move in any direction, but bizarrely, there seems to be a universal "up" - stations are all oriented the same way, for instance
And most players pretty much ignore up and down, to the point where high or low areas are commonly used to hide ships that are too big to dock.

Punch Clock Villain: The empires' attitude towards low and null security space vacillates between military oppression and withering apathy, and unsurprisingly many citizens in these areas decide to join pirate corporations to escape their worlds half empty. It can get so bad that in one instance citizens literally signed over their solar system to the local pirates. This raises some troubling implications about the actions of capsuleers, with only a few beleaguered voices such as the Servant Sisters of Eve calling them out on their sociopathic "heroics".

Explosive Overclocking: Pilots with the "Thermodynamics" skill are able to overheat active ship equipment, gaining percentage boosts to functionality at the expense of the modules taking heat damage over time, eventually rendering them inoperable.
As of this update (June 2009), any individual modules, or an entire "rack", can be overloaded. In addition to increasing heat to dangerous levels, it also drains the [[Mana capacitor]] faster, and incrementally damages the module affected.

Boring But Practical: Frustrated by the lackluster performance of their missile defense batteries many high security Caldari station managers turned to their other racial weapon, the ECM battery. The result was the dickstar, a defense designed to literally bore attackers off the battlefield by ensuring they wouldn't achieve target lock for more than five to ten seconds at a time. Since ships with ECM immunity aren't allowed in high security space, only the most persistent pirates continued to attack them.

Good Bad Bugs: Capital ships warp sideways.
As of Dominion 1.1 (January 2010) this is no longer true.
While technically true, they dont warp in the correct orientation as the ship will warp when you get to 3/4 top engine speed. But Cap ships are so large they cant align very fast. So instead of sideways, you will warp at an angle. Odd thing is that I've seen it happen to a Hulk. Which is T2 Mining barge.

comment
Scrappy Mechanic: The Apocrypha probing system has drawn criticism both for "scrubbing down" probing and for adding Fake Difficulty in sorting through scan results. Some of these concerns, especially about Fake Difficulty, have been addressed in patches since then, however.
Prior to Apocrypha, the challenge wasn't in button-pressing. It was in creating an efficient set of bookmarks that properly covered every planet in every system that you wanted to scan... without the ability to place one probe inside of another's scan radius. Depending on skills, you also had a long and boring wait for results. And the incarnation of scanning before that was also Scrappy.
Faction Warfare has been getting a lot of Scrappy hate lately. It started out promising, but after two years of almost no mechanics changes, some half-broken fixes, a rather boring capture mechanic and a few Game Breaker issues, the players who want to like it are getting fed up and the players who don't snipe at others to go play the real game in 0.0.
Generaly, almost every major update, one or more new Scrappy Mechanics will emerge as old ones get fixed or nerfed and new things are introduced. Nano Tanking, Black Ops, Blasters, Warp Stabalizers...

Secret Police: When the Empyrian War started, the Gallente got their version of this called "The Black Eagles", because the Caldari invasion was partly enabled by an admiral who sold them information. Recently, they tried to enforce an attempted nationalization of several Gallente megacorps...and Jacob Roden, founder of Roden Shipyards, backed by the other corps, successfully faced them down. He became the new President soon after.

Absent Aliens: As far as anyone knows, all the races of Eve are human in origin. Borderline cases include:
The Jove, who were certainly human once but bio-engineering has changed them dramaticly.
The Sleepers; far as can be told, they're descended from an ancient human civilization that predate the current ones and whose artifacts can be found in New Eden (Minmatar space particularly), but no one really knows for sure what they are now.
Rogue Drones, who evolved their own intelligence and live in hives. See below.

Palette Swap: The pirate ships, with the notable exception of the Angels and the Sansha, are just the bog standard ships that players fly with different colour schemes. Tech 2 and faction variants are similar, although this is a bit more justified.
Most T2 ships usually have bits added on somewhere to varying degrees.

Portal Network: Solar systems are connected with stargates, while sufficiently advanced groups of players may wield the portable version, jump portal generators.
Alliances can also build their own full-fledged networks in space they control, using Jump Bridge Arrays.
In the expansion Apocrypha, unstable wormholes will allow players to travel to unexplored solar systems.
Or to other systems in known space, be they in (relatively) safe Empire space, or out in the middle of nowhere in Outlaw space.

Status Quo Is God
 make a to do send a pm add to watchlist drop watch go to watchlist EVE Online / int_faa52aa1
comment
Status Quo Is God: No matter how many times you run a mission or kill NPCs, the enemy never seems to run out of ships, men or equipment. In four years, despite constantly being stated to be on the brink of war, almost nothing of note has happened to the four Empires.
Although a new expansion may possibly change the status of this to Averted.
No mays or ifs: With the introduction of Empyrean Age on June 10th 2008, Caldari and Amarr are officially at war with Gallente and Minmatar in a conflict dubbed "Rockets and Lasers vs. Drones and Duct Tape" by players.
An interstellar war on a vast scale, where the loss of ships, men and equipment is constant, so large that it would appear that nothing is ever actually changing.
As of 6-2-2008, Caldari Militia virtually controls all Gallente Faction Warfare space. It will be interesting to see if CCP actually rolls with it or hits the Reset Button.
CCP definitely seems to be rolling with it- the current "plot" for the bulk of the nigh-daily in-universe news reports cover what's going to happen to the occupied Gallente systems. While it's unlikely that gameplay will be affected, the fiction and R Ping certainly will be.
Also, averted very, very hard in the 0.0 space that is outside of the four Empires' control and left entirely for the players to shape. Changes in Alliance's member corporations, Coalitions between different alliances, and the regions controlled by different alliances occur constantly; some alliances might be completely destroyed and replaced by others. See the collapse of the Triumvirate, the disbanding of Band of Brothers, and Goonswarm moving in its entirety to the Bo B's former space for the more prominent examples.
Could also be averted with the new Dominion expansion and the changes to Sov. Making 0.0 Space even more open...possibily.
