EVEsterdam 2019: EVE Online explorer visits every star system without being killed


When people say that EVE Online is a game that lets you make your own path, they aren’t kidding. While CCP Games builds gameplay and maintains the New Eden star cluster, it’s the stories of players doing extraordinary things in the sandbox that are always the most compelling.

Sometimes that means thousands of players cramming into one star system to kick over someone else’s sandcastle, or a record-breaking betrayal that kills an alliance of thousands of players. But sometimes it’s just someone playing by their own rules and exploring the universe in their own time. Player Katia Sae has now joined the ranks of EVE Online‘s most legendary players by completing an epic journey to visit every star system in the game without being killed by anyone.

The trip took over nine years and included visiting 7,805 star systems, which includes every single system in highsec, lowsec, nullsec, and the extremely difficult to navigate wormhole space. Every system was catalogued in over 50,000 images on the Sagan Explorations blog, and the only known systems left unexplored are the inaccessible Jove regions.

In recognition for Katia’s incredible achievement, CCP invited Katia to become the first regular player to visit the Polaris star system normally reserved for developers. CCP is also planning to add an amazing looking statue of Katia’s character to the game, which uses a new technique to build the statue directly from character data.
