I might leave the EVE Online number-crunching and analyzing to Massively's Brendan Drain, but my personal history with the game is long, however, and I have proudly reactivated my 2004 account (complete with a 10 million skill point character) once a year to see how things are going.

While most MMOs dedicate these roles to specific classes, ships in EVE can do all three at the same time.
