In EVE, much of 2020 was spent in renovation working on the goal of regaining control of the EVE economy which had been spiraling towards major excess of ISK, minerals, and assets. This endeavor has not always been simple or comfortable, so you are to be acknowledged and thanked for your resilience. The stage has been set for a more abundant and sustainable future for EVE.

CSM collaboration has been very constructive this year, both with CSMs 14 and 15. Not being able to meet in person and build on relationships with the Council due to COVID-19 is regrettable, but hopefully the world will be in a better place soon and all can return to in-person meetings again. At the beginning of the Scarcity Phase, the strategic decision was made not to involve the CSM before the rest of the community. As fundamental changes were made to the DNA of the universe, preserving the integrity of everyone involved was a priority.

How EVE Online Is Changing Players’ Lives for the Better

Video games change lives. 

20 years ago, people would have scoffed at, perhaps even ridiculed, the idea that a game could have a profound effect on its players. But nowadays, it would be very difficult to find a gamer who disagrees. Since its inception, gaming has been an engrossing hobby that helps build relationships, offers stress relief, and can even serve to impart lasting life skills. As games themselves have evolved and pursued more ambitious endeavors, this has only become more true. 

One game that exemplifies this is EVE Online, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) that is nominally about spaceships and exploring the stars. Although it might seem at first like a straightforward game about blasting away your enemies, hoarding valuable resources, and exploring the star cluster of New Eden, once you peer beneath its surface, it’s also about building relationships between players and learning skills you can take with you to the real world. It could even be argued that without delving into the metagame around EVE, it is difficult to get a real picture of why the game has survived – and thrived – for as long as it has.

Festive Capsuleers,

The holiday season is coming to EVE Online, so it's time to get together, and keep your weapons warm in the coming storm. Introducing the Winter Nexus, this year's furious fusion of festivities include the travelling winter-themed Volatile Ice Storms which feature Wightstorm sites, plus the 13 Days of Nexus login event, Chilling Spree, Yoiul Festival-themed Abyssal Proving Grounds, and - if you can believe it - even more, until 5 January!


Exclusive to the Winter Nexus holiday season, Volatile Ice Storms will appear and travel between systems in High, Low, and Null Security space, bringing specific environmental effects and content. With this seasonal weather come the Wightstorm combat sites, hacking sites, and ice mining sites.

Rewards include valuable Overseers' Effects, hundreds of festive ship SKINs, limited-time Cerebral Accelerators, rare faction modules, and blueprints for the new Rapture pirate implant set.

The Wightstorm Fleet has been drawn from the vast reserves of Sansha's Nation to take advantage of the opportunity presented by the appearance of Metaliminal Volatile Ice Storms across New Eden, and the strength of these fleets will depend on which part of space they are encountered in.

How EVE Online's Players Started a War That's Cost $700K

It may not receive the mainstream attention of massively-hyped games like Cyberpunk 2077 or annual franchises like Call of Duty, but EVE Online has been a pillar of the gaming community for almost two decades. Books have been written about the rise and fall of major factions, of the different eras of its 17 years of history.

Now, it’s likely another book will be needed just for what EVE has experienced in 2020. For the past five months, its community of more than 300,000 players finds themselves embroiled in a war that’s sent its entire galaxy into disarray and has (so far) caused nearly $700,000USD in digital property damage.

Friday, December 4, 2020


Even before the global coronavirus pandemic, it was becoming rote to point out that people, by and large, were not having a good time in 2020. For one thing, there’s the accelerating devastation of climate change, which has only exacerbated economic and political instability worldwide. There’s also been massive unrest over inequality across the globe, leaving many people feeling helpless to change the tide of history.

So what can a video game do to help anything? If you ask CCP Games, a fair amount, actually. Through their massively popular game EVE Online, CCP says players feel measurable, positive, and utilitarian impacts. Or as they simply label it: “The EVE Effect.” According to internal surveys, CCP claims a full 73 percent of players have made new friends through EVE, and among those who did, 65 percent said their new sense of connection meaningfully improved their real lives outside the game. What’s more, 72 percent said it’s possible that skills they learned in EVE helped them get better jobs. In the MMORPG, players find a complex, virtual environment that naturally cultivates substantive friendships, while teaching people skills that have practical applications day-to-day: ranging from spreadsheet fluency to leadership to better communication. True, that’s not fixing wide-scale global problems, but it’s making people’s day-to-day lives feel richer, and that’s meaningful.

'EVE Online' will finally get a native Mac app early next year

If you’ve wanted to play EVE Online using a Mac, you’ve had to settle for running the game in a compatibility layer (namely Wine) since 2007 — and it has only become more problematic with macOS Big Sur. That won’t be a problem before long, thankfully. CCP Games has revealed that it’s developing a native macOS client that will both support Big Sur and bring some welcome improvements for the space-based MMO.

Most notably, the game will use Apple’s native Metal graphics framework. You should expect “beautiful visuals, features and performance gains,” according to CCP. Other native frameworks should also free up resources and enable proper mouse and keyboard integration. The company is promising to throw its “full weight” behind the native Mac app to provide an ideal experience.
