Thar Be Whales Here

There’s something fishy going on at CCP. First they announce a new game for consoles, and now some kind of expansion involving … Orcas?  Wat?

Oh wait, there’s a news article.

Ten free expansions down. Now an eleventh.  Set for Winter 2009, EVE Online: Dominion will focus on what is often cited as EVE’s “end game” – alliance warfare. It offers a complete overhaul of the current sovereignty mechanics in favor of a system that’s a brilliant mix of our game design vision and the input we’ve received from fans on forums, at conventions (FANFEST!) and via the CSM. Savvy alliances will benefit greatly from following and understanding these changes, which will receive extensive testing.

Ok, I’m intrigued.  For anyone who’s had anything to do with this “end game” they speak of, you’ll know full well that the current sov mechanics are pure joy in game form.  I’ve no idea why they want to change anything.

No idea at all.
