By CCP Phantom
| Comments

Introduction From massive fleet battles with thousands of pilots to duels between two brave spaceship captains – the EVE Online Universe has it all! Further information about these events, with all the excitement, drama, and triumph or crushing losses, is provided by the EVE community on public killboards. Killboards can help data-mining and might expose behavioral patterns of pilots; they also can give an easy overview of important events and provide a list of top pilots or entities.

Pre-Retribution Trading (Price Indices – November 2012)

By CCP Recurve
| Comments

Expansions spur trading, both prior to realease and after. The effect of the preparation for Retribution can best be seen in the Mineral Price Index, which rose by 8% from October to November. A rise was to be expected, as Retribution brought new Tech I ships and major changes to many of the already existing Tech I ships. Nocxium, Isogen and Zydrine prices contributed most to the rise in the MPI. The prices of these three minerals rose by 17%, 20% and 26% respectively. The price of Morphite ros...

Holiday Dev Incursion!

By CCP Unifex
| Comments

The holidays are coming to New Eden again and it's time to spread cheer. Normally, we would allow Sansha Claus to come in his Revenant pulled by 9 Nightmares (one with red spikes) to deliver joy to everyone, but he's still busy locking down random constellations with his whole Incursion shtick, so it falls to someone else to take up the reins. No, we aren't talking about the Thukker Bunny.

That is, very small changes to the game that would make your life as an EVE pilot just a little bit better. Since then you guys have really stepped up to the plate and posted thousands of ideas.

Aftermath of the Mining Barge Changes (Price Indices – October 2012)

By CCP Recurve
| Comments

It’s been a while since we released a dev blog on the New Eden price indices and the things that affect them. The last dev blog on the subject discussed the effect of the changes in loot drops, the Burn Jita event and Hulkageddon. These had a major impact on the supply and price of minerals and ice. The focus of this blog stays on the price of minerals and ice.

Community Spotlight - SOMER blink

By CCP Phantom
| Comments

Introduction The EVE Online universe of New Eden is filled with opportunities to win a fortune – or to lose one. From loan brokers, stock trading and investment banking to more shady activities such as betting, gambling and lotteries – all this emerged from within the EVE community. Lotteries are especially popular and they are easy to understand: buy a ticket and strike it rich! Only one ticket can be enough to win the jackpot, billions and billions, rare or even unique ships; everything seems...

Hi everybody, Today I'm going to talk about how to fly safely in Retribution! We are adding a couple of new features to ensure that, when you inevitably lose your ship in a very silly way, it is very definitely 100% your fault.

Corp Hangars on ships and You

By CCP Greyscale
| Comments

So, we're changing Corp Hangars on ships in Retribution. Why? The short version is that the current technical implementation is an unnecessary maintenance burden; and we don't feel that the complexity of the design is justified by the value it delivers. On the technical side, the same code is handling corp hangars in stations, starbases and ships.

Introducing the Free CCP Developer License and the CREST API Beta Test Period

By CCP Seagull
| Comments

At Fanfest this year, we introduced new technology in our cluster called CREST, that allows us to connect new applications to the EVE cluster in a much more interactive way than the current EVE API. We also announced that we would introduce a Developer License for 3rd party developers for those who want to use CREST in their applications, so that creating apps around EVE would be governed by its own license, not just by the player EULA.

Pilots of New Eden, changes are coming to the Drone Regions with Retribution. Changes you may want to know about. The changes listed below are designed to bring the Drone Regions in line with the rest of the New Eden cluster.
