#MYEVESTORY Video Contest Results!
During December 2016, we released a series of videos that charted the stories and experiences of several high-profile pilots.

We celebrate the anniversary of a new "Incarna" camera in the game.
One year in complete silence!

THANK you to everyone at CCP for their constant hard work at continually making the Eve Universe a better place. Where else in any other video game anywhere do the developers actually try to LISTEN to players and make needed changes? CCP probably doesn't have unlimited time and personnel to devote to fixing issues or expanding game play so some things may take a long time to improve or may never happen at all but my personal opinion is that players should give more commendation instead of more complaints.

Try beating a dog all the time relentlessly for bad behavior. Now try praising and rewarding your dog constantly for good behavior. Compare the results over time between dogs. (Please don't actually do this. Dogs have feelings too. Just like employees working in the video game industry do.)
