EVE Vegas 2015: What to expect from EVE Vegas 2015

    
12

While the main event of the EVE Online community calendar is undoubtedly the annual EVE Fanfest in Iceland, smaller fan-run events have popped up around the world over the years to accommodate players who don’t fancy traveling to the arctic circle. Probably the biggest of these events is EVE Vegas, which is happening right now in the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The event has become so big that this year CCP has officially taken over and tuned it into a mini-Fanfest filled with new information, reveals, and talks from both developers and members of the EVE community. As MassivelyOP’s resident EVE expert, I’m on the ground at EVE Vegas this weekend to find out what the future holds for EVE Online.

Today’s schedule includes both an EVE Online keynote with Executive Producer Andie Nordgren and a Valkyrie keynote with Associate Producer John Nejady. The real meat and bones of the event kicks off tomorrow with presentations on CCP’s plans for capital ships and deployable structures in the upcoming Spring 2016 expansion. The event is also peppered with feedback-gathering roundtable events, talks from players from all walks of life, and more info on something called Project Discovery that aims to “bring real science research into the game experience.” CCP has told us that this event will present the company’s vision for the future of EVE and solid plans that will be delivered by Fanfest 2016, with a few potentially big reveals.

Disclosure: In accordance with Massively OP’s ethics policy, we must disclose that CCP paid for our writer’s travel, accommodation, and ticket for this event along with several other members of the gaming press. CCP has neither requested nor been granted any control or influence over our coverage of the event, and the writer is paid exclusively by Massively OP for this work. We also hope you appreciate the hilarious absurdity of sending a teetotaler writer to the city of sin to write about internet spaceships.

JayPower Nyphur Really how can they not stream it in this day and age.  Even if they did something like blizzcon where you need a ticket it should be streamed some how.  I mean for gods sake runefest is streamed.

JayPower I can now confirm that they will be putting videos of everything on Youtube ASAP, possibly during the event. I’ll embed them in my further posts about the event as soon as they become available.

I’m not surprised. God forbid we anger the null sec alliance leaders or they’ll just organize the crashing of the server again.

Hmm, is SP for sale was just a trial balloon dev blog, I can’t imagine what “a few potentially big reveals.” could entail.

Nyphur JayPower I would be interested in the perceived-at-least focus on alliance/null play. If they are trying to get some growth, it seems to me getting more [new] people into lo/hi sec to become future null players would also be a strategy.

IMO, if you “expect” stuff from CCP, you probably haven’t been paying attention to CCP. One of their best and worst attributes is they don’t have normal corporate restraints and inhibitions.

Nyphur JayPower From what I’ve read on Reddit, they are not streaming the event. Honestly, I don’t even know if there is a recent bias towards vets and alliance with new planned content. That’s just my perception watching the game blogs for the last couple months. It’s just tough being a new player in this game but I’m trying very hard to stick with it. Maybe that’s the issue though, should I need to feel like that with a video game I’m playing? Anyway…thanks for the reply.
