The EVE Client - A Love Story

By CCP Atlas
| Comments

The EVE Client - A Love Story Greetings fellow New Eden denizens. I wanted to write a few words to recap some of the issues we have been having with client performance as of late and explain our ongoing strategy for addressing these problems. The short version (without technobabble) With Quantum Rise, we kind of messed up the performance of the EVE client.

EVE Music - Getting Inside RealX

By CCP RealX
| Comments

For Quantum Rise I wrote ten new tracks to accompany the 57 that are already in the game. Since this is an addition to a proven design, the main inspiration for them was the previous tracks, and the inspiration for those was always the artwork and the feel of EVE. Special mad props go to Ásgeir Jón Ásgeirsson former concept artist and now Art Director for EVE and the former Art Director Reynir Harðarson.

News on the next QEN and a new Econ Devblog

By CCP Dr.EyjoG
| Comments

News on the next QEN and a new Econ Devblog Unfortunately we were not able to finalize the 2nd quarter, 2008 Quarterly Economic Journal before Thanksgiving despite our best efforts in mining through hundreeds of gigabytes of mission data. So instead of giving you a QEN with thin discussion on missions and their statistics we decided to work a little further on getting a better dataset and delay the publishing by another week. However with new team members we are able to churn out recent...

Military Experts are calling this Alliance Tournament VI

By CCP Mindstar
| Comments

Yes... You read correctly! It is with great pleasure that I announce that we are in the initial stages of organizing another Alliance PVP Tournament. There have been a few threads on the forums over the last few weeks while we have been finalizing this, and I have been itching to reply to each one with this news! As with previous tournaments, it's going to have excitement, explosions, extravagant setups, exotic dancers and plenty more (well maybe not exotic dancers; we will see how we g...

The most notable additions are Certificates and Medals.We added a list of granted certificates to the character sheet as well as a new page, /eve/CertificateTree.xml.aspx, which is similar to /eve/SkillTree.xml.aspx but displays all available certificates grouped by categories and classes.

I can resist anything but temptation

By CCP Oveur
| Comments

"I can resist anything but temptation." -Oscar Wilde Unfortunately for you, the rumors of my death have been highly exaggerated. I‘ve seen the occasional post inquiring about my demise. While flattering, I think most people have forgotten all about the old nerfs and more vividly remember some random jokes while I was flaming some poor soul on the forums. I‘m now many years older and a bit wiser.

Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'

By CCP Chronotis
| Comments

Much has changed in Eve since many of the hauler or mining class ships were introduced. With Quantum Rise we felt the time was right to review these ships and make changes where necessary to refocus their roles and ensure they can still perform in the age of New Eden's Great War. Of all the ships, we found the transport class to be the most lacking in distinct roles, so much of this blog will focus on the changes to those and then we will briefly list some of the other improvements to s...

Eve TV & Fanfest

By CCP Loxy
| Comments

Now, this is a story all about how... So to start this off maybe a quick introduction is in order, I'm Charlie the newest face in the CCP Marketing team, working as a video producer and having the fantastic role of managing EVE TV's events. While EVE TV may be changing a bit in the future, its ideals are still based on "something made by EVE players, for EVE players." I can safely speak for myself and others who have moved from EVE TV to CCP that we'll continue to put all our efforts, a...

Alchemy

By CCP Greyscale
| Comments

As Dr.EyjoG has remarked in the past, one of the differences between the EVE economy and real-life economies is the inability for the participants - that's you lot - to work around inefficiencies with genuine product innovation. In a real-world economy, shortages and bottlenecks drive R&D teams to find new and better ways of doing things.

From today until the start of FanFest, CCP will be tracking all Buddy invites to see who locks down the highest number of Buddy conversions from invites sent during that time.

The Orca

By CCP Chronotis
| Comments

The development of the Orca has been unusual to say the least. With the introduction of the Rorqual last year Oveur immediately pointed out the remaining glaring gap in the industrial ship line and commanded us to fill it. So we set to work by halving the attributes of the Rorqual and calling it the Orca (one of the original suggested names for the Rorqual) so we could tinker on our development server with it and begin the process of molding its role. This was in the days before we had our Branc...

Weapon Grouping

By CCP Ytterbium
| Comments

Optimization is such a wonderful concept. Technically it means “the procedure or procedures used to make a system or design as effective or functional as possible”. Technically applied to a Dev breakfast, it would imply filling a mixer with bread, meat, salad, coffee plus various other possibly out of date consumables and directly inject the output to our veins through a syringe.

Alliance Logo Submissions - Streamlining the Process

By CCP Loktofeit
| Comments

Out with the Old, In with the New The Alliance Logo System is a feature that allows players to submit unique and custom icons to appear in game for their alliances. The submission process up to this point has sufficed, but we felt it was time to revisit it in order to create a more streamlined and effective path for both the players and the developers.

Born Global

By CCP Hellmar
| Comments

On a sunny day in June 1997, CCP was founded in Reykjavik, Iceland. A lot has happened since then and today CCP is a global enterprise with offices in Atlanta, Shanghai, London and Reykjavik, with a diversified employee base and partner relationships that span the globe many times over. CCP is fortunate enough to be well isolated from the current banking crisis we see around us on both sides of the Atlantic (and here in the middle of it, of course).

Quarterly Economic Newsletter, 1st Quarter 2008 is finally here

By CCP Dr.EyjoG
| Comments

Dear capsuleers, First of all I must apologize to all of you that have been waiting for the next QEN. This one is long overdue. The main reason for this cancellation has been an over commitment of our resources, both my own as well as those of other supporting roles that we need in order to be able to make each QEN. But in the end the responsibility is mine, and mine alone, and therefore I apologize to all of you, our faithful pilots, for this delay in the publication. But the good news is that ...
