Message of the Eve Online ecosystem outlook:

  1. We (CCP) understand this is important and will closely monitor it
  2. The ecosystem needs regulation in order to “provide a fair and vibrant playground full of diverse and rewarding opportunities for all players”
  3. The ecosystem is currently in a bad shape almost across the board and decisive action needs to be taken now in three areas
    1. Balance and progression (Actions taken: Tiercide, Titan HAW removal, regular weapon and balance updates, …)
    2. Economy and industry (Actions taken: Scarcity phase, FW LP payout, incursion payout rules)
    3. Cheating and abuse (Actions taken: Drifter AI, Broker relations, new detection tools)

Something you might not know: (Tell the audience something they might not know about Eve. Could be mechanics, player history, lore, etc.)

  • Silver:
  • Oz: Outsourcing buy orders is more important than ever 
  • Dawn: You can store a barge in a rorqual even if its being attacked as long as it is empty of everythingg but ammo
  • Aezekiel: The fleet regroup function can be used with fleet warps to create useful fleet formations – a fun rabbit hole for the “i hate F1 and approach” crowd to explore.
