Daily Tip:Your time is worth ISK. If an item that you want is for sale in your station for slightly more than in another station, don't bother fetching the cheaper one. You could be using that time to have fun or make ISK.

  • Solar Systems Overload
    CCP couples an announcement about an extensive server upgrade with a plea for in-game corporations to move their operations out of several heavily trafficked systems. This from the official site, and no, I wouldn't kid you about the source:

    " An Oursulaert native went on record, saying "They better fix the *bleep* *bleep* *bleep* jump *bleep* gates before I *bleep**bleep**bleep* and then some." He then shouted something incomprehensible at nearby Customs Officials, subtle foam beginning to assemble at the corners of his mouth as he finally became able to jump to the next system.



    Similar stories have been reported in systems like Nonni, Sobaseki, Inoue and Isaziwa. Wasona Binge reported that rush hour traffic was approaching "Clusterfu*bleeep* proportions." "

    And now in a nutshell, friends, you see why EVE isn't a mainstream MMO. It's growing though, and I'll confess: it has me hooked! Read more about EVE Online's growth pains at the Official Site.

  • How do you say "party" in Icelandic?
    CCP has a lot in store for gamers at EVEfest later this month, Oct. 20-22. For a mere US$675, you too can get the complete package from Icelandair. Oh to be rich and speak a Scandanavian language or two. I've heard that Iceland's beautiful, not to mention an important NATO stronghold against the commies.

    "The 2004 EVEfest was a success and we aim to do far better this year. We have presentations from the leads at CCP, we have the pre-launch of our upcoming expansion, code-named Kali, technical sessions, panel discussions, the EVE Championship, and we have added developer roundtables and and the first glimpse of EVE Trading Card Game! "

  • New EVE content is around the next moon.
    EVE Online promises some large scale changes in their patch notes. Madonna still shows no interest in commenting on reports her religious
    beliefs draw heavily from the following texts:

    "The summer solstice fast approaches, and its arrival means that the long, hard Arctic winter is about to enter its slumber. Cold as it was, we worked feverishly on projects so secret that not even their names have been whispered in public - Until now!
    So get ready for a new content patch, a new type of EVE updates from CCP that is much larger in scope than a regular patch and yet smaller than a full expansion. It is our great pleasure to introduce to you the Cold War Edition."
