At least its news that is interesting to some players, instead of some role playing stuff almost nobody cares about. Smile

You did at some point, and nice edit your first post was far more interesting and flamebait.

You have to report the news, like the other dude said.. too lazy, then no news and front page for you!

You prefer them having absolutely no news instead? Making pure objective news is nearly impossible they will "always" be considered as unfair by those not mentioned in the news (or perhaps even if they are in the news in a way they don't like).

40 man gang having their own outpost?

I must admit I was puzzled about that piece of news as well.

32B outpost built by 40 pilots in a year equates to 32B/40/365 = approx. 2.2M isk contribution per day per member...

Write some anti-amarr news instead - or just praise minmatar :P

Some role playing stuff is actually interesting. Not the current stuff necessarily, but remember the days when new tech and changes to the game were RP'd in the news? Some interesting article would be written that would get folks interested in what might be coming next, based on some engaging RP'd storyline that could be one post long or several over time.

You know... RP news which had a tangible effect.

I agree, that was pretty cool. I seem to remember them role playing the 250 mm gauss gun prototype (that later turned into the tech 2 version), or maybe my memory fails me. In any case, that gun was worth going to 0.0 for... they sold for 40 mill each back in 2003. Fun times. 40 mill was huge money back then. =)

Imagine if they did that today... like "scientists have spotted a strange phenomenon in the ABCD-E system, bla bla bla" and you would go there and find out what it was... would be pretty cool.

Please try. Im sick of having to travel across eve for decent scraps.

As to the OP asking if it could of been someone employed by ccp, well that name rang a bell so I did an employment check.

Ah yes, ex evol- ex BOB. How quaint that he, a former BOB of all people could accuse someone of too close links to ccp.Rolling Eyes

As to the topic, I think its great that they are doing interest pieces on corps like c-p, or any corps for that matter. Like some of the posters here have said, its real news instead of generated non-hype for a few RP guys spinning ships in empire.

More pieces like this and updates on conflicts around eve would be great. It would be interesting to have several interest pieces on different entities not only the mega corps who, quite frankly, get enough hype, media and epeen waxing on the COAD forum.

If small tidbits like this do anything for eve, it would be to encourage individuals and corps to think outside the square, strive beyond their percieved limits and maybe impress themselves by what they can accomplish. Too many eve players sit in npc corps running missions or leave because they simply dont know what potential this big ol' sandbox has.

Now enough niceities. This is the General Forum. It should be filled with more whines and cries for nerfs damn it!!!

To answer some points;

Why we wrote about it

a) It was reported to us
b) We wanted to devote some space to smaller corps/alliances, rather than always focusing on EvE's grand wars.

All the news that appears in the Amarr/Minmatar/Caldari/Gallente/Alliance sections at the bottom of the main news page are written from a roleplaying point of view, even if they're not related to an AURORA event or story arc.

Hello there,

Yes, im sure it is possible to build an Outpost with less then 40 ppl, but who knows this?
There are houndreds of small corps in EvE that are thinking "Damm we are to small to do big things".This news are for all the Pilots all over the Universe, In EvE all is possible and even a smaller group of ppl can rich everything.

And Yes 1 Year for an Outpost isnt a big deal, but most of you guys didnt know the story of C-P and the Members inside. For us it was a Big Deal, and we are proud of it.

Now i want to Thank ISD for the great story, awsome work.I hope i can read more of that kind of storys, because this is what EvE makes EvEPlease visit your user settings to re-enable images.

Indeed. When I read it, I actually read it. As in, it peaked my interest. Maybe others have done it with less, or as many, and sooner. Would I want to know about it? YES. It is worth hearing about. It is inspiration for up and coming corps who, without that inspiration, will feel like they can't do anything in 0.0 unless they're somebody's pet.
I also read the Tri post. Again, because its interesting. Are Tri the only badass alliance/new alliance out there? I dunno, but that doesn't mean I don't want to read about them.

Grats and may others continue to seek their own goals, through their own methods, for years to come. Lest we become a game of cookie cutter builds and 0.0 being a 2 alliance sovereignty.
