Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseEngineering: Many ships (especially Gallente ones) are very non-symmetrical. While balanced symmetry isn't needed in space for aerodynamic reasons, it's still important for balance and stability even in a complete vacuum. No competent engineer would design ships as terribly lopsided as some of the ships seen in the game. Fortunately, many recent ship model redesigns have brought a lot of ships into a much more symmetrical shape.
* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Ships have fairly low arbitrary top speeds and turret-based weapons similarly limited ranges, both of which are eclipsed even by modern technology. Cruise missiles are even described as "lifting wing" designs. One popular player theory is that EVE Online space is fluid rather than empty, and thus fluid dynamics such as friction are present.

** AnimalThemeNaming: Caldari frigates, destroyers, and cruisers are named after birds (i.e. Cormorant, Blackbird)
** ArmsAndArmorThemeNaming: Minmatar ships smaller than Battlecruisers are often named after weaponry (i.e. Scythe, Broadsword)
** ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming: Amarr ships are named after religions ceremonies, punishments, and events (i.e. Armageddon, Heretic). Gallente ships often have classic Greek mythological names, (i.e. Phobos, Hyperion). Minmatar battlecruisers and larger are named after Norse mythology (i.e. Loki, Nidhoggur)

** Several Titan weapons get in on the fun. The '''G'''ravitational '''T'''ransportation '''F'''ield '''O'''scillator is an [[AreaOfEffect AOE]] device that teleports away all subcapitals in its area of effect. The [[{{BFG}} Bosonic Field Generator]] unleashes a very powerful AOE blast.
** A Rorqual pilot can protect their mining fleet with the '''P'''ulse '''A'''ctivated '''N'''exus '''I'''nvulnerability '''C'''ore.

** Also, mining tends to be the most reliable way to make money (to build replacements for all those ships that keep getting blown up), but it can be mind-numbingly tedious. Fortunately, the game has an in-client web browser...

** This, itself, leads to one of the more obscure traps, the Margin Trading scam. The scammer lists something worthless at a premium price elsewhere in the area, then posts a buy order for that item at an even more fantastic price. The Margin Trading skill lets the player place a buy order without having to immediately deposit the full purchase price; when the person being scammed buys the item at the premium price, they'll find that when they try to go to sell it to the buy order to make a profit that the lucrative buy order they were chasing cancels due to lack of funds, leaving them with a fraction of the money they started with and a cargohold full of worthless trash.

* ManaBurn and ManaDrain: Capacitor Warfare weapons - respectively, "Neuts" or Energy Neutralizers (remove a significant amount of energy from both the victim's and the user's capacitors) and "Noses" or Energy Vampires (remove a much smaller amount from the victim but also restore it to the user). Most ships rely on their capacitor to use some of their modules and sometimes guns.
