Although I’m still waiting for my retail copy of EVE Online to arrive in the mail (it should sit nicely next to my Simon & Schuster first edition), thankfully, unlike in 2003, not having EVE on disc isn’t any kind of handicap. I plan to delve fully into the many features of EVE’s tenth expansion over the weekend and I suspect many thousands of others plan to do the same.
To celebrate this very first weekend of Apocrypha‘s existence, we’re running a little competition so we can perhaps glimpse EVE through your eyes. What we’re after are your screenshots. They can be of ships mining, travelling or fighting. They can be of pilots tending to starbases, searching for wormholes or epic battles aganst Sleeper ships. In fact they can be of anything from inside New Eden, they just have to be good-looking images. The very best that we receive will be published in the edition of EON that’s out next month (April 3rd, I think).
Send your images to email@example.com and include your player name and the system the screenshot was taken in. If you can write a sentence or two about what was happening before, during or after the image was taken, then that will be a bonus to your chances of winning a prize… Yes, we have prizes!
For every image we publish we will hand out 100m ISK. You can enter as many times as you like, and if we get load of great pictures, we may end up publishing ten rather than the usual five. So that’s a potential 1bn ISK prize fund! (Ok, not as much as some of you earn, but it’s the most EON’s ever had in its wallet.) Winners will also receive a copy of the next magazine, and I’m also looking to try and get a graphics card out of NVIDIA, but I may have left things a little too late on that front. I’ll update this if we get lucky.
Rules: Premium client images only please. Turn-off the UI (CTRL-F9 to toggle). Email your imagse to firstname.lastname@example.org before 6am EVE time on Monday morning – don’t forget your player name (or alt) and the system where the picture was taken. Some commentary will be very helpful too.
Edit: Oopsy. It’s CTRL-F9 to toggle UI, not ALT.
