r/eve

Forums.eveonline isn't just secluded from the rest of the internet. It's also crippled by the politics of the game. EVE-O is multipartisan and will never compare to the cohesiveness of forums of different player groups.

Depending on your affiliation you will probably dislike one of the few major sites that come to mind. But they're all incredibly successful from a neutral standpoint and they're more great examples of players doing it better.

I guess it's harsh to say EVE-O could be killed off. At a bare minimum I think it could serve as an announcement platform and maybe recruitment center for new players.

IT'S NOT LIKE DEVS TALK TO US ON HERE ANYWAY. lol


There is clearly a place for corporation and alliance forums. Clearly a place for /r/Eve and subreddits (though I find the main /r/eve is disorganised) but the reason for keeping these forums is it is a place which seems to have a better selection of subforums where a wide range of players post (and lurk).

yeah it's multipartisan so eve-o has that going for it. Communication is crap though.

You know I was just listening to that song the other day. It's the weirdest thing but it made me think of something I saw on the updates site http://updates.eveonline.com/

That graphic update in particular, it's a few scroll wheels down the page. It seems like the godrays are new in DX11 but they're actually not. The thing is, asteroid fields have had that 3D capability in EVE for quite some time but they acted like it was something we needed to upgrade for.

But I know for a fact that you simply needed to be within range to execute this function.
