this game is often called complex, but isn't the combat simple as hell

I dunno how complex or simple it got later on, but I know for sure, it was boring as hell.

EVE is complex but in a different way. The game has its own politics, territories, great wars etc.

The combat is pretty simple in PvE. When you get to PvP, things like transversal velocity and module overloading actually matter. Loadouts also become more complex, so generally there's quite a bit to be aware of and manage.

But this is neglecting how you find your targets, how you engage them, who you bring with you, who your enemies even are in the first place... these elements are all intertwined and not easily separated from the combat. So overall I'd say it's pretty complex.

Most of the combat in eve is in your fittings and information about your opponent.

Isn't EVE that game where you go semi-afk for hours whilst mining asteroids?

You can choose to do that.
