Most MMOs don't have the sheer amount of relevant parameters per player to take in consideration during the fight.

Usually you have something around 20-30 parameters, life, dmg, resistances, position and movement and maybe a handfull more parameters.

In eve the number of parameters explodes exponentially, for example, no only your position and speed is relevant, also your angular speed vs each other ship that is shooting at you or you shoot at.

Add the fact that every player has the option to have at least 5 drones that are basicaly slave ships with their own set of parameters to keep in consideration.Also add that some of the projectiles used to atack enemies are physical entities wich can be atacked and destroyed with their own position, speed, life...

Now add everything up and try to factor that in your comparison...

You don't need children or to wait X years to feel the need to do a last will, anyone could die tomorrow, and they might want to make things "right" just in case that happens.

The problem is: Would you leave your valuable WoW/EVE/whatever stuff to your brother/friend/whoever and risk being killed by them to get your "Phat L00t"?

That would add a new depth to the expresion. "I killed my bro for the l00t!!!"

Because right now you have to login to their servers to play single player, and since the autentication servers are overloaded they just reject most of the connections, so you have to try a hundred times to get logged in. A queue would somewhat aleviate that problem.

Seriously, that stupid online single player idea is a damn fuckup...

So they told us that having to connect to their servers to play in single player mode wouldn't be a problem, that we should trust them.

And now the EU login server is melting under the pounding of thousands of angry players trying to play solo.

And to add insult to injury they didn't even have the nice idea of implementing queues like most similar systems do..
