  • No Justice For the Masses?

    Do you play EVE Online? If not then lets get you up to speed. Gamers deposit momeny in a bank, similar to real life banking expecting to earn a bit of interest for a raining day. But one day that bank turns up missing. Should there be some forum of recourse?

    Normally, if bankers make off with all the money that clients have entrusted to them and mysteriously skip town, there's outrage, an FTC investigation, and a nasty jail sentence involved. If they get away with the crime and no authority's doing anything about it, it must be the plot of a "Deadwood" episode, right?

    Read this report to learn more. I know you have an opinion about this...don't be shy! Head over to the forums right here at Ten Ton Hammer and sound off.

  • The little indy that could...

    Some poo poo EVE Online's peak concurrent user (PCU) numbers. It's true that EVE doesn't hold a candle to World of Warcraft's 6.5 million, but EVE beats every other game in this aspect: when EVE sets a PCU record, it's because EVE has more players in a single individual game world than any other game ever. Cool, huh?

    When EVE Online opened the China beta, code named Serenity, they did it again:

    CCP Games, the game's Icelandic developer, today announced that more than 30,000 users were concurrently playing in a single gameworld, which it claims is a new world record. In the first day, more than 200,000 people registered for the game. The Chinese version of the game is run by Optic Communications and runs independently of the Western edition of EVE Online.

  • Womp 'rats with a little help from EVEMon...

    Ignig.com reports on an EVE Online standalone addon which simplifies character progression.

    Dubbed EVEMon, the standalone Windows program not only simplifies character progression tracking, but also helps players plan out training plans and take a look at the “what ifs” in character skill choices and more.

    Unfortunately, the addon doesn't automate the months of mining required to make character progression more than a fun minigame. Nevertheless, check out Ignig.com's article on EVEMon, mon.
