Exciting things are happening in the Sci-Fi Space MMO EVE Online. A new post from CCP on their official website talks in detail about a new story driven event. In the ongoing plot line some of the Drones are acting quite odd. Each one of the factions in New Eden is desperately trying to figure out why. The event has players collecting Neural Network Analyzers and Sleeper Data Libraries and turning them in to their chosen faction.
CCP has even hinted that the results of the event will directly affect the implementation of new technology in the game.
Out of character, I can reveal that this storyline and the associated donation drive will lead directly to new technology falling into the hands of players in the near future. The relative success of each empire’s donation drive will determine in what order each faction will get access to this new technology. Each faction navy will also express their gratitude through a special in game item representing an honorary commission to their forces. The commissions will be given to the character that donates the highest value of Neural Network Analyzers and Sleeper Data Libraries (combined and weighted) to each faction over the course of the event. Each commission will be a unique item that will forever contain the name of the winning character in the description.
EVE pilots can participate in the event by turning in relevant items from Sleeper Drones via item exchange contracts to their factional contacts. The event is currently live and will end on October 14th. For more information, EVE pilots and those interested can read the official posts here.Related: EVE Online, Event (In Game), MMORPG, Sci-Fi
