Let’s go moon mining in EVE Online’s newly announced expansion, Lifeblood

Happy September, EVE Online. Howsabout an expansion? You got it: CCP has just announced Lifeblood, launching October 24th.

“As new technologies for resource acquisition emerge in the form of Upwell Refineries, new moon mining capabilities and refined reaction processes, pirate factions have set their sights on taking a slice of the dwindling resources that remain in New Eden. With more tools for resource gathering at the hands of capsuleers than ever before, the competition for raw materials and supremacy over space is becoming more heated than ever as the cluster is pushed closer toward the brink of all out conflict.”

New refinery structures are en route, along with moon mining, a better UI for reactions and The Agency tool, collaborative gameplay dubbed “resource wars,” pirate FOBs to take out, a balancing pass for alpha ships, and a ledger for mining history. The studio’s also awarding Fanfest and EVE Vegas ticket holders a Marshal class CONCORD Battleship. Requisite trailer below!

I joined Eve last November with the Alpha patch
Can someone explain to me why some people say this game is worse than before?
For new moon mining mechanics, i like it
Until now moon mining is just installing a POS, which is expensive and long training, not to mention that some alliances war for moons
With this patch, the regular miners, aka whales and smallers, could get some juicy new ores
On my way to a carrier, but first the tengu, for the 10/10s

Was a fun game back in its early days. I wouldn’t go near it now. Game is filled with scum bags.


Im my limited experience, MOBAs and FPS are worse
And i learned the social rules of Eve before joining the game, so im ok so far


Man…this game could be so much more…it’s a shame really. I would have played EVE for another 11 years but it just got stale.

Well, EVE already has more depth then pretty much any MMORPG out there.


I think this game has a lot of PvP lore
But has neglected the PvE lore and mechanics (its so weird to me that 7/10 and 10/10 are soloable, but the others are not, and not to mention the unrated ones, and that just about escalations)
I hope one day NPC factions (not just guristas, or bloodraiders, but also gallente and the rest) can attack some alliances either the rival alliance has better standing or for a huge amount of ISK
Imagine goons being attacked by drifters, killing even their citadels
