So the next o7 show is tomorrow, April 1st. Lets do something semi fun and predict how much of it will be real info and how much of it will be fake April fools stuff.

I'll go with 50/50

OMG Comet Mining idea!!! Comet Mining!

I don't think CCP would risk doing anything like that on official video.. not with this playerbase who tries to hold them to every little thing they ever said in any offhanded remark that's been recorded since 2003.



Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

Well, that would explain why they moved it to a Wednesday instead of the usual Thursday.

I say there will be one prank thrown in, but it'll be a huge one.

this might be more likly. if they do it right, it might be hard to tell till the release. cause they could do soemthing crazy like "we are releasing new structures that do this awesome thing but seem off in spril' and then 'this small feature that seems likly will be in april' so we think the big one is the gag and the small one is the real one when its flipped.

If they don't announce either the shutting down of eve or the firing of a popular dev I will be disappointed. Not a good Aprils fool joke if there's no rage.

True, then again they did make a music video, and get Starbuck to tell people to sack up, so you never know.

Grrr.

I'm sure they will give us something to rage about,
and if they don't I'm confident we will find something regardless even if we have to make something up.

Speaking as a devout tumblrista, I hope CCP is judicious with their use of humour given their neurodiverse audience, and avoids provoking unnecessary anxiety in individuals of unique cognitive disposition.

There's probably gonna be one super obvious April Fools joke in there. All serious business otherwise though.

Betting the collection of ten "CSM" data slates will be redeemable for a working key pass to finally, once and for all open that damn door in the CQ... behind which will be the secret location of the new ENTOSIS module.

Or, even better ...

The joke is that they make the show on the first,
so everyone keeps looking for the joke.

But there is no joke.
It's just a regular show.


And THAT's the joke behind it.



BOOM, mind blown!

What CCP will do tommorrow....

In thera all day once every hour a single wh will open into Jove space, the WH will close behind you. It will only allow a single ship into the hole. Once inside they will be greeted by rats NPC's that will shower that player with warp bubbles, webs, scrams, then the final show, fireworks. Once they are done, they clear the field and bubbles go poof. These NPC ships will have a scan resolution of 100,000. Once the rats go away, a system signature will show up. Once you warp into the site, you see an NPC who will start you on 25 long quest line. the quest line explains the origins of the Jove, how eve started You will see it all unfold with NPC ships, and dialog in local. The NPC mentions you having to stay logged in for the whole chain, something about automated defenses.That isn't important, what IS important is that each quest gives yo a T2 BPO, titan BPOs researched to 10/10, JF T2 BPO's researched to 10/10. basically really good stuff. The last quest, the NPC who has been taking you through this visual representation of Eve lore, mentions about increased chatter, and he is worried. Tells you that you need to leave this place, and quickly. This gives you the last and final system warpable, the exit WH. As you land, you will notice the WH is being covered in some sort of contraption and it doesn't look all that good in terms of WH health and stability. As you approach it, you will see a lone frigate class ship uncloak. It instant scrams, webs, and drains your cap dry. It will start an effect that looks like a Titan bridge, and it will fire four doomsdays.

And that will mark the end of the April fools day.
