Remember the awe you felt the first time you undocked from a station to witness the majesty of space? Did you sit and stare at nebulae, suns, and stars? Maybe you giddily found something to shoot at watched your guns as they created beautiful explosions. Or perhaps you warped from place to place, reveling in the boom of the warp drive and checking out everything you could find.

While this is traditionally a time to reflect and acknowledge just how far we have come together, it’s also been an exciting time to share our vision of the future. 2013 has been a watershed yea...

By CCP Eterne
| Comments

There have been many EVE podcasts over the years. Some have come and gone. Others have endured, but have never quite found their footing. But one of the oldest and most respected EVE Online podcasts we have is the Declarations of War podcast. Run by former CSM representative Alekseyev Karrde, the podcast has been providing players a focused look at PvP and 0.0 for over three years now. History Back in 2010, there were several EVE podcasts, but they were not quite what Alekseyev was looking for.

Community Spotlight: Pyfa

By CCP Eterne

Having a competent fitting on your ship is important. But when you're in EVE, you can't easily theory craft. There is no tool that lets you see how your ship would perform if you only had that deadspace module on it, or are under the effects of a fleet booster, or just had another level in Advanced Weapon Upgrades.
