EVE Online News – CCP to Build Monument to Players

CCP has announced its intention to build a monument to honor all of the EVE Online players who have passed through the game over the past decade. The monument will be built in Reykjavik, Iceland, home of CCP.

The monument will stand atop a half a meter tall metal-plated concrete platform that will have the names of all the main characters of all active EVE Online players (as captured on March 1st, 2014) etched upon it. CCP will be honoring EVE players who have passed away by adding their names to the monument as well.  A web-based application will assist in finding specific names on the monument‘s surface. A laptop buried under the monument will serve as a time capsule with videos, messages wishes and more from the players and the development staff.

Read more about the monument on a special section of the EVE Online site.

EVE Online News – Huge Intergalactic Battle & Rubicon v1.1 Brings Big Changes

Apparently, the fight for outer space is just beginning thanks to a huge battle going on as we speak. In addition, EVE Online Rubicon v1.1 is set to deploy on Tuesday, January 28th according to the latest developer blog on the official site. The update will bring the new Sisters of EVE Battleship online, as well as a host of new shipwrecks, graphical updates, UI changes and optimizations and more.

There's a massive fleet fight going on in EVE Online right now that's gotten both side in the ongoing, and universe-spanning "Halloween War" to commit hundreds of their most expensive ships. Reports say over 8 Titans have already been destroyed amongst other ships worth well over 1 Trillion ISK (Interstellar Kredits). This is big, folks.

There are a couple places to watch live, with new streams opening up as well.

As was announced at EVE Down Under last November, the Sisters of EVE ships released in Rubicon are receiving support in Rubicon 1.1 with a brand new battleship lovingly named the Nestor. While themed around exploration and flexibility like its smaller siblings, it does not receive a bonus to cloaking but bonuses to remote repair amount and range to make it a very powerful sub-cap logistic ship.
