Something you might not know… (Tell the audience something they might not know about Eve. Could be mechanics, player history, lore, etc.)
- Artimus: Organize hoarded items and limit soul crushing lag with Station Containers
- Arkadios Sol:Did you know Ushra’Khan and CVA are the oldest alliances in EVE? They both started back in 2004 and they are still alive and kicking.
- Cj Allyn: Fitting,That my favorite ship in the game should be my fun fact: The ship “hecate” Named for the Greek Goddess of Magic. Is the most mispronounced ship in the game Hek uh tey or heck it. I call it the Brocat because its a brawling monster.
- RoCkEt X: Immediately following the ‘Dominion’ expansion (2009 q1 – the introduction of fighter bombers and useful anti capital weaponry on titans), fighter bombers didn’t have their explosion radius/velocity set correctly for several weeks, resulting in circa 19k dps and almost perfect application target hulls sized battlecruiser and up without the need for webs/paints. Because kills were mostly instant, killmails would bug and only show the damage inflicted by the fighter bomber that got final blow. Cue hilarity: https://zkillboard.com/kill/11344911/ https://zkillboard.com/kill/11300442/
- TheLastSparton: Mechanic wise I’m not sure how many people also didn’t know this but I only found out recently that bombers can cloak after launching their bomb and it will still cause damage. I had always heard from people that you had to stay uncloaked or it would do no damage
