You know what Eve Online needs... a good alien invasion!

No. One of the main reasons why I like EVE is because it focuses on humanity. Space is vast and seemingly infinite. The likelihood of encountering another spacefaring species is slim to none.

I think it would be really interesting to see what's on the other side of the EVE gate, though. I mean... something has to be there after all this time, right?

Where can we find canon lore on sleepers and jove?

I'm lazy and google wasn't instantly gratifying so I gave up.

Thanks.

Now that has a rather simple storyline.

What were you unable to Grok all this time ?

Not a bad idea really. Since Null sec players seem a bit bored or restless perhaps some alien incursions into null sec would liven things up for them.

Listen to the trailer carefully and you could say it has a hidden meaning in it.
Well if you listen and think they are talking about EVE.
Have fun .

Incursions, you say?

Triggered by: Wars of Sovless Agression, Bending the Knee, Twisting the Knife, Eating Sov Wheaties, Bombless Bombers, Fizzlesov, Interceptor Fleets, Running Away, GhostTime Vuln, Renters, Bombs, Bubbles ?

It sounds like fun, but there's always been a lot of resistance to the idea of non-human invaders, and NPC invaders in general. I guess the Incursions are what we'd kinda get.

A new player race (aliens) might be interesting too...but again this idea never seems to win much support around here. You'd think an actual roleplaying reason to gank our ships would have some traction, though.

Perhaps CCP just thinks they have enough to deal with the way things stand?

The problem with Incursions is that they can basically be ignored. You have to go to an Incursion site to be involved.

It would be much fun to have strong NPC fleets attack players at gates, stations, and towers (especially towers in Wormholes - imagine some 40-ship Sleeper fleet with cap support coming to attack your tower). Places where players tend to congregate, not just asteroid belts and mission sites. Fleets that will escalate in size depending on how many players get involved in attacking it.

Not seeing it. But that was a fun nostalgia trip. Saw the movie in theater in 1978 with my dad. Those 'alien trees' in front of City Hall San Francisco are sycamores.....they are still there and look like that every spring after they cut them back. It's weird walking past them tbh.

Sorry about that, sometimes I forget that other people don't hear the voices.
I tend to get distracted by them from time to time.
