Message of the Eve Online ecosystem outlook:
- We (CCP) understand this is important and will closely monitor it
- The ecosystem needs regulation in order to “provide a fair and vibrant playground full of diverse and rewarding opportunities for all players”
- The ecosystem is currently in a bad shape almost across the board and decisive action needs to be taken now in three areas
- Balance and progression (Actions taken: Tiercide, Titan HAW removal, regular weapon and balance updates, …)
- Economy and industry (Actions taken: Scarcity phase, FW LP payout, incursion payout rules)
- Cheating and abuse (Actions taken: Drifter AI, Broker relations, new detection tools)
- Community banding together to save Tripwire
- Upcoming Eve Meets: – Are any of these cancelled due to COVID?
Something you might not know: (Tell the audience something they might not know about Eve. Could be mechanics, player history, lore, etc.)
- 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.
