Happy Sixth Birthday, EVE

Time sure does fly.  EVE is six today!

I could probably write for days about the various crazy adventures I’ve had in EVE over the last six years but that would be a lot of work.  However one thing that really stands out for me is how much of the EVE game itself has changed, and how much of that change is due in large part to the players themselves.

We’ve seen massive alliances rise from nothing and disappear into oblivion years later after waging war with others and destroying gajillions of isk worth of hardware.  We’ve seen economic upheavals in game that rival (and sometimes mirror) real-world issues.

Best of all, the actions of even a single player here and there have caused the biggest disruptions in the game’s history.  Massive corporate thefts and one-click alliance disbandings are just the start.

The future’s looking bright with expansions like Ambulation promising to add entirely new types of content to the game.  Whether you’ll love it or not you have to admit that these newly opened doors could allow for amazing content down the road as features mature and integrate more.

For those of us who’ve been here from the start, I salute you for sticking around through all the drama. 

For those who haven’t, while I envy you going through those first wide-eyed days in the game, I also hope you keep on making the game interesting.

For those who have yet to dip their toes, come on in — the water’s fine, and we always love seeing more targets.

Happy Birthday, EVE
