DUST 514: Platform Decision Are Still Open

Kirith Kodachi: It’s Time – Yearly Expansion Cycle

Dev Post: [Rubicon] Command Ship Models

One of the changes we were investigating for Odyssey 1.1 but had to drop due to time was adjustments to the models of half the command ships. The goal would be to move them over to hulls that match the T1 combat BC that shares their weapon type, creating some more variety, opening up options for …

Interceptor time!

Faction Warfare; What is it Good For?

I’ve spent a good amount of time in Faction Warfare (FW) to know that it is very, VERY different from the rest of the PvP options available in EvE. It has been around for some time now, with various changes generally accepted as being for the better. But in spite the amount of players …

CSM8 Status report: Week twenty-one

We were busy.  It’s almost as if there was some major community marketing push last week that was badly bungled.
Seriously, we were pretty busy with that.  I wrote a long mid-week update on what the CSM was doing about the SOMER Blink promotion, so if you haven’t already …

EVE Valkyrie Without The Oculus Rift?

Excited about EVE Valkyrie? Well you should be, but don’t expect to be playing it on the very well received (not on the market) Oculus Rift. At least not at first.

Jester’s Trek: Point of no return

The name, I must admit, makes me a little nervous.  And no, it wasn’t shared with the CSM in advance.

Seraph IX Basarab: Considerations on the “Northern Army.”

I really have to wonder what exactly the point of this is. Initially it may sound like a good idea. You get the best of the best out of your main alliance and put them in this super group…and then what? NCdot already has a renter alliance. What becomes of the original NCdot? In business there …
