CEVE, Also known as the Serenity server. Is the Chinese equivalent of the Tranquility server.

Often unknown to the players outside of China, Players that have never played CEVE usually has some misconceptions of CEVE.

I personally have played Tranquility and Serentiy for more then 2 years each. So to debunk these myths, here are the similarities and differences compared to Tranquility.


So, What's the similarity?
1. Same Game Engine. Same Mechanics. Same Universe. Same Game.(No, there are no extra gates......)
2. Same Economy System, Same Trade Hubs, Same Manufacturing.
3.Same Freedom of play (ie. Scams, Griefing, Player Operated Projects.....)
4.Same Tactics (Yes, Lots of Domis.......)
5.Same Battlegrounds (Jita, EC-P8R, BWF-ZZ,HED-GP......)
6.Killboards


So, What's the difference?
1. Different Players, Different Alliances, Different Gaming Culture.(Less Trolls)
2.Cheap Commodity Prices( PLEX 3,900,000,000 isk, BC3 160,000,000 - 188,000,000 isk)
3.Cheaper PLEX (10USD Per PLEX)
4.Less players (8,000 on average, Major Alliance fights is usually 1000 vs 1000)
5.Less T2 BPO's (its often not used in manufacturing, and usually kept idle in the hands of rich players as souvenirs)
6.Less Skill in PVP on average (Though some pirates and major alliances have very skilled pilots)
7.Rich carebares(I've seen way too many officer fit ratters..... But if you kill them they will hate you forever, even provoke alliance scale action against you.....)
8.Less Roaming gangs (You won't see much roaming gangs other then some hot spots.)
9.More Blobs (If you do roam into another alliance's sov, you will surely be greeted with a hot drop of 3 times your force)
10.Less wormhole activity (I was able to dominate the class 6 wormholes with only 40 people..)
11.More Mining BOTS(Tiancity has been cracking down on them, but you know Chinese gold farmers...)
12.CHEAP TITANS (Though hard to obtain, I got mine for only 700USDBig smile)
13. One Patch less then the current Tranquility server (ie. Tranquility:Rubicon CEVE:Odyssey 1.1)

SOV MAP

Also another reason I'm posting this is because of a major null-sec event, resulting in the fall of one major alliance and the winning alliance turning on each other. Thus creating in a ton of unclaimed systems and chaos in null-sec structure. My wormhole alliance is looking to make a push in claiming some null-sec systems. But with a excess of accounts and not enough hands to control them all, I'm looking to create a English speaking corp.

So if you are interested to join or just to explore this forbidden universe you can contact me. And I'll show you how to translate your game client to English version, how to create an account and buying PLEX.

You really bought plex worth 700 USD and bought a titan? Just wondering, no judging.

How is the name of the Chinese Chribba Blink And is Jita also the biggest tradehub?

Yes, I had connections with the manufacturer. But It's usually around 750USD. Got hot dropped too much, so i brought this to do some hot dropping for myself.

Chribba in chinese is ChribbaBlink, But we also have a legend called DF WILL, legend tells it even mentioning his name will result in destruction of your entire fleet.... Luckily I'm not FCing at this moment....

Yes Jita 4-4 is the biggest trade hub with all the same stuff including highsec ganking and war decs... Just no burn Jita though....

Actually, looking at the conversion rate, it's about half the price. Hmm, not bad...

Fair enough, but considering the ship prices I can purchuse 16 fully fit cookie cutter Talos or a fully fit archon with one PLEX. Which is 10 USD.

I don't think he was talking about RMT. To be honest, I'm kind of interested in checking out the server.

I'm sorry for not making my self clear, it was not RMTing. I brought 70 plexes and gave the isk to the manufacturer. Which is within the rules of the game. I just said 700USD so you don't have to convert the 270,000,000,000 isk price in terms of PLEX prices.

Interesting! Smile

You didn't list languages as one of the major differences, aside from the interface, so I'm assuming there's a solid amount of English-speaking westerners and/or English speaking Chinese players to be found there or..?

Hah, I totally forgot about that... The interface is pretty much the same once you installed the translation script.
The server itself is mainly Chinese speaking players with a few Russians here and there. There used to be a bunch of English speaking mates that I roamed with but they eventually died out due to lack of PLEX acquisition methods.

How do you fare with diplomacy/trades or communication ingame in general?

Or do you speak Chinese? Big smile
