I'm in love with that vid, we need more of that kinky stuff!
Nice way to bring back some background story into eve again. But, it's kinda late, people are already used to labelling eve the new "CS in space" Rolling Eyes
All kidding aside, I hope the Empyrian Age will bring some long forgotten elements (story driven events, anyone?) back to the game.

Pretty cool video 'event' stuff. I like that its not just a stand-alone video, but that it's had some integration into the game

Because this is nothing but roleplay related information. A tale about how factional warfare getts introduced.


You do realize you're playing a roleplaying game, right? Don't get me wrong, I'm not a RPer myself and I'm not sure how much I'll be involved with factional warfare, but it looks to me like CCP intends to kick the RP aspect up a notch (BAM!) in some core gameplay, which you and I may, unavoidably, both be a part of.

Great video! Congrats CCP, great way to introduce new content. Best RP since the exploding visiting Jovian ambassador spewed various body parts into everyone's hanger.

well if you really dont want to know about it, then dont read it?

see people, this is why we cant have nice things. (also, forum integrity is serious business).


Not trying to step on anyones toes. Just wondering why all of a sudden roleplay content is being posted on general discussion.

Mainly asking because I'm keen on preserve the integrity of the game since I feel that this expansion is a shift towards a more NPC-centered gameexperience and a threat to what we've defined Eve as up to now.


Edit: I wouldn't want anyone posting this either if I loved roleplay.


As it is influencing the general public, it is right to have a thread about it in general forum. CAOD would be wrong, not General.

Let's say CCP decide to change all the agents to a variable quality system where as they give more missions they degrade in quality. You think it should be commented only in the mission forum? or you feel it is right to be commented even in General forum as the ramifications of the change will influence the general public, even those that don't do missions?

Factional warfare the expansion influences the average player. This thread contains nothing but factional warfare stories, nothing about the expansion per se.

Are CCP announcing any gamechanges that haven't been made public before in this thread? Are they even mentioning any gamechanges in this thread?
Have they revealed any information at all that doesn't somehow involves roleplay in this thread?

I think we've established by now that you'd rather they announced factional warfare by saying "We've made a mechanic for small-gang PvP. There's an in-character backstory to this, but we didn't want to bother you with it. You can read it in the intergalactic summit and events forums."

CCP always have backstory to explain major game changes. Okay, yes, they normally introduce this in news items rather than in the general discussion forum. Maybe they didn't realise how offended some people would be to be reminded that there's a fairly deep fictional background behind the game.

I'm still baffled why you have this irrational dislike of a Dev bringing the background to factional warfare into general. Were you bitten by a roleplayer as a child?

So, what is it about factional warfare that you don't like? And as for the roleplay aspect, it is my experience that this is the only online game where you don't really have to roleplay in order to properly roleplay your character; everything you do in the game is "in character" after all.

I hate this thread. It has no right to stay in general forum.

Note: rephrased for brevity.




Care to point the sticky where is explained that new items are no meant for the general forum?

I'll make a post about it if I think it's necessary. The last audio devblog made me less nervous tbh. Still not a direction I like Eve to take.

I am freakin excited over FW, and I love videos like this that build up to it. I'd consider this RP-Lite and perfect for people like me that are interested in the upcoming expansion but not enough to enter the sacred RP forum.

What would happen if a Titan ran into a station? Think it would survive?

Sure, its interesting and all.. but I dont like it.

Gallente being painted as evil, AGAIN?

Ham-handed kludge using a noted advocate for peace He has since become a spokesman for improving the relationship between the two nations, undoubtedly selected for this summit because of his years of advocating peace. as a kamikaze carrier pilot?

news stories painting gallente as all manner of terrorist and xenophobes?

Why not just say "and then all the evil Gallente cackled before they jumped back on their brooms and flew away"?

Current pace keeps up and we will be branded same as the, well, same as a political party that one cant talk about!

Say no to Clumsy Prime Fiction! Say no to a forced return to the neo-fascist right-wing regimes!

Please? why are we automatically the bad guys Again?

Because you guys keep crashing things into other things? It appears to me that you Gallente just crashed a Nyx into a station. How is that not evil? Are you going to call yourselves freedom fighters now?

The Caldari are just trying to make money, Minmatar are fighting to end slavery, Amarr are doing God's work, and you complain about being called evil when you crash a Nyx into a station? Jeez, the nerve of some people...
