When CCP switched out the Scorpion a couple of years back, from being a wonky Lego-like fiddler crab to a design that was more in keeping with it’s animal namesake, a fair few people complained. I didn’t. The old Scorpion was in my view a hideous abomination that was barely improved upon by the Trinity expansion, so to see … Continue reading
CCP called a couple of press conferences last night to go over all the recent fury and protest over Incarna, vanity goods prices and whether CCP’s future microtransaction strategy is as dominated by greed as might have been suggested by leaked internal communications. I know this because I was listening to the first conference, which … Continue reading
It’s fair to say that the plan to offer digital editions of EON has not gone how we would have liked. Originally we’d envisaged having them ready by the end of 2010, but it looks like the end of 2011 could be as wildly ambitious a target. The problem is one of integration, specifically the … Continue reading
After an impressive 300 matches were played out over the spring, the inaugural EON Frigate League wound-up a few weeks ago and after an impressive ratio of 72% wins (38 out of 53 played), we can belatedly declare Noise as the champion.

It’s that time in the EON production schedule where my colleagues start badgering me for words and pictures and I in turn start haranguing CCP for raw materials from which to forge those words and pictures – all with a view to putting everything together into something that can hopefully be recognised as a magazine. … Continue reading
Frigate League has at last been updated. Noise has been the most active pilot and has taken the lead. Slight change of plan: The League will end early, 1200 ET, June 1st.
Having missed the first opportunity to rummage around Captain’s Quarters, I was compelled to visit the headline feature to EVE”s summer season when it returned to the Duality test server over the weekend. I spent literally minutes walking around the cramped compartment, clicking on things that didn’t really do much and testing the springs on … Continue reading
What about that 1.5 patch then, eh? The first thing that struck me after logging in after the server went up yesterday was the striking sky blue of my BPCs. It was as if angels had come down to redecorate my hangar in heavenly pastels. Then I did an agent mission and OH MY GOD! … Continue reading
