EVE Online prepares players for summer cruiser rebalance

hey, you guys wanna have a fight
Ahoy space captains! EVE Online is working to get the word out about a “significant” rebalance patch for the game’s strategic cruiser line that’s coming on July 11th. As part of the preparation, the team posted a dev diary outlining some of the changes and announcing the formation of a focus group to gather feedback for them.

“Since these changes to strategic cruisers will be very significant in scope, existing ships and subsystems will go through a dramatic transformation on patch day. We want to start warning people now about the impacts of this transformation and will continue communicating it over the next two months to ensure that players are not caught by surprise.”

If you’re in the mood for a good space yarn, you might want to read this fascinating true story about how tenacious EVE players managed to overwhelm and outsmart an AI space station that was designed to counter players’ threats. As usual for this game, the answer involved “tons of small, disposable ships.”

Finally, you can listen to a new EVE track, Birth of the Capsuleer, after the break!
