Plus I was hoping for a combat system a bit like freespace2 or sim (action/fps) instead of a lockon/target/click attack button.

Anyone got a link to a video they could share of high lvl pvp or fleet style engagements? The game was highly audio and super visually impressive, but the pace just killed me.

Fleet battles actually aren't all that much fun to watch because it's mostly zoomed out with little purple and red squares pew pewing each other and other squares warping in and out. Small gang combat is where the fun is. I still think one of the best pirate videos out there is the one Lyticus put together a while ago. It's mostly solo action, but it's still very, very good: (right click, save as)

For some smaller fleet combat, this is another one of my favourites: Cult of Cthulu - Good Rats. RIP Ioctl.

In addition, you can check out the video subforum of the official eve-o forums for tons of videos.
