Thousands of copies of EON #016 are bagged up and ready to be set free into the maelstrom and chaos of the global mailing industry, all of them sure to miraculously end up in the hands of their buyers over the course of the next week or so (depending on where they live, of course). For those who’re currently subscribed to New Eden’s finest inkfest, there will be found a bonus in each envelope in the form of a Caldari Cruiser poster (as below, but rather larger), which basically has all the State hulls ordered so you need never mistake a Rook for a Falcon ever again… or have any excuse to. If you’ve yet to subscribe, it’s not too late to get your hands on a poster. Please let us know what you think of them. If you like the concept, we’ll try to do more for other ships in the future.
Details about what’s in the issue can be found on the Latest Issue page, or you can go straight to the EVE Store to order your copy of the magazine. The Store was recently upgraded, making it considerably easier to purchase EON. In the past the system hasn’t allowed you to use PayPal, or buy other Store items at the same time.
Thanks to everyone who helped out on this issue; CCP of course, FinnAgain from EVE Tribune, James from Massively, Kirith Kodachi for stepping into the Testflight seat at short notice, Karox Lominax for being all-knowing, and a whole host of other players who were kind enough to lend their time and expertise, among them Mynxee, Verone, Hardin and some guy called Winterblink, who seemed happy enough to endure me questioning him on Skype for more than two hours for a Warp Drive Active retrospective.
Before I leave you to your internet wanderings there are a few winners to announce; those who’s in-game images we’ve published from the hundreds sent in last month. All of the following will be receiving 100m ISK from the EON corp account: Odyessus, Tonglil, Seraphina Oriana, Skittifink Dagger, Praerian, Montuss, Kailen Thorn, Niner Skirata, Kai Misu, Felix Hawke and battlebot1077. The winner of the EVE Conquests board game is…. Niner Skirata. Well done to you all, and thanks to the many hundreds of others who entered. We’ll be running the same deal next issue, so ready your favourite screenshots. In the meantime, enjoy the issue!
