This is a petition so vote yes guys so Eve staff can see this :)

Not empty quoting a moron, but a moron who never read the backstory....

An alien civilization would probably be a bad thing from a setting design standpoint.

EVE = everybody versus everybody.

The four big factions were designed so that each of them have a fundamentally different moral outlook, and that each have reason to distrust (or outright hate) the other factions. This encourages pew pew and drama.

The sudden appearance of a non-human alien civilization would probably bring together many of the human nations, providing a unifying threat that wouldn't be good for the chaotic conflict that is EVE.

Hi Bezintine Miromme,

Just to give you some information here;

Petitions are used to raise problems or questions with the Games Masters and are are managed by their own special option in game (Press F12) or via the Support option of the EVE Universe drop-down in the top right corner.

However, they're not the people who would deal with this ... post.

EVE has Aliens and Super advanced humans who are to all intents and purposes, Aliens. We just don't have (as far as we know!) intelligent aliens, there are animals like Fedo's and Long-limbs for example.

However, don't dismiss the backstory - it's very relevant to EVE as it explains how mankind came to be in this region of the galaxy in the first place.

Have a look over here. There's a lot of interesting reading, especially if you like to get immersed in the game.

Hope this information helps!

Sansha

Is the Dr. guy that created them still alive, or are they self aware and rulling themselves?

What makes us a lifeform? Being replicating, biological matter? Aren't the Sansha like undead androids, and don't they make more of themselvs?


A nonhuman group, bent on destroying us, has been a part of the setting design standpoint for some time now.

This is why they need this video to be back when you start EVE for the first time http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T84nrp08MWo&feature=my_liked_videos&list=LLNS9eelOVbzPJO9gXVvf4aA

Its the old storyline intro, shows what EVE is about.

We are all humans ofc but we are in a different place now because we got closed off from the Milky Way Galaxy. Go to system New Eden to see the Closed WH please.

Please can OP learn eve history, this post should make him learn about it P

Exacly correct, I had to learn EVE's history by looking at Chronicles. Since that video was removed I bet most of the new eve players are wondering "Where are the aliens? Why are there only humans here? Where is Earth?"

This reminds me I'm gunna put a request on the F&I section.

Let me help you with your ADD



Great insult, once again like I said, I don't care about your backstory, I'm saying in THIS universe a new RACE(s) are discovered, maybe a jumpgate can get created to their galaxy or something I don't know. You're just trying to stick to your story like it's the Holy Bible. Think outside the box!


You like aliens go play startrek or starcraft or starwars or lord of the rings or world of warcraft this is eve and eve is eve. God where are those people comming from the even not read the backstory of eve only shouting and trolling the chat about it...

Nope still humans.

Humans under mind control, but still human.

The introduction of an alien race would somehow just not fit into this game. This lack of fictional element is one of the things that makes the game more "real".


With an all-human game, we can operate on related concepts, pretty much "what we do". It's plausible that the human race might be like it is in the game 23000 years from now in the same circumstances.

Bringing in an alien race is going to be 100 percent pure fiction, complete with inventing the race, what they do, etc. It just does not fit.

The point of other humans being split so far off the mainline of development that they seem alien to us is good enough.

Bring back DEEEEP Space!

I think the EVE setting of all-human is original in a scifi genre and the backstory is great.


ie: no

TA on wis: "when we have a feature that is its own functional ecosystem of gameplay then hooks into the greater ecosystem of EVE as a whole, and it provides good replayability."

EVE "aliens" are Jovians, they are so different from other races of new eden that they are considered "alien like" creatures. I don't know about sleepers, i mean more is unknown about them then known, but they are long gone.

They can almost be considered Alien, but just imagine what Earth and it's solar colonies are like compared the people in New Eden, including the Jove.


Jove wouldn't even be considered worthy of looking upon by people from Earth at this stage.
