EVE Online gets a TV show
The space MMO EVE Online is getting a TV show based on player stories. This is amazing news.
For those who haven’t played EVE Online before, it’s a huge space game where almost everything is run by players. Many high-risk zones are controlled by player made Alliances and Corporations, where they operate and wage war against enemy alliances.
Due to how the game works, the in-game currency (ISK) has a real-world currency.A while back a great battle was fought that cost $16,000. Real money.
I once was part of the universe’s most powerful alliance. For like, a day.
I tire quickly.
When I was still a beginner, I travelled a bit too far into unknown territory to mine some asteroids. Two players warped up to me and one of them demanded I drop my loot, or they would destory my ship. His name was Dave, so naturally I replied
“I’m sorry Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that.”
He then killed me.
