EVE Echoes is basically EVE mobile, but questions remain

There's a reason you've seen so many EVE Online stories this past decade and change: the entire game is player-driven. If a war starts and someone loses items that amount to scores of time and money, that matters. If players are literally too afraid to enter certain areas for fear of PVP, that changes the entire scope of the game.

All of that is colored by EVE's 16-year history and is constantly evolving. But when EVE Echoes enters the scene on mobile devices, none of that direct mechanical history is being carried over. The economy will start completely fresh, the meta is brand new and no one really knows what to expect, not even the studios behind it (CCP and mobile partner NetEase).

I had the chance to speak to multiple members of the EVE Echoes team at EVE Vegas this past week, and although there are a lot of lingering questions that won't be answered from now until the eventual 2020 release, things look very hopeful.
