Pann said in the new update for this week:
http://myeve.eve-online.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=18985

"Billboards are now stationed beside stargates in empire space and use missiles as part of their arsenal."

Now my question is, what is this billboard? Is this an actual ad thingy that sits next to stargates that corps can use to advertise things? or what?

If thats what it is, then it's an interesting surprise as I have been hanging around the eve boards for over a year now and never heard of CCP thinking about doing stuff like this.

If thats NOT what she means... oh well... It might have been a good idea hehehe.

Is this on chaos right now? anyone know?

It is a billboard. they are pretty cool too. If you zoom your camera around so you are super close you can actually see the red/green/blue of it's giant LCD. Don't shoot it because the sentry guns don't like that. Also, it will start shooting missiles at you.

Forgot to add... yes they are on Chaos now.

Yeah it's on Chaos, I've seen a few screenies of it. I think it's cool, I hope they're like rentable though.

I had heard about them a couple of weeks ago, but had not seen one until yesterday. They scroll the headline from the most recent News announcement and look pretty nifty.

Not sure if a corp or individual can rent them for advertising space, but that certainly sounds cool. I'll send it up the flagpole and we'll see who salutes. =)
