EVE Online – Captains Quarters & New Tutorial Alpha Test 2011-20-04

Join Dave McDavid as he explores the new features of EVE. You don’t see me interact with anything in the CQ because I basically appear to bork the interface at the end, but all you’ve got right now is a couch you can sit on, a little screen on the table that does nothing. A big screen on the left that opens the “Corporation” menu, a big screen in the middle that does nothing, and a big screen on the right that opens the “Science & Industry” menu. Also, visual quality is crappy because the lads at CCP haven’t quite figured out how to get anti-aliasing working with the CQ yet or something. Enjoy.

EVE Online – Alpha Test

Captured from the Phoenix version of EVE, this is the version that was used in the first alpha tests.

EVE Online – Scrapheap Challenge Gank Night 18 (Moar Alpha)

Scrapheap Challenge, a forum / fansite for Eve players, does occasional organized events in-game. This was a ‘Gank Night’, where players group up with themed ships and roam through space looking for fights. This night’s theme: Ships designed to emphasize “alpha” – focusing their firepower into a single overwhelming hit, as opposed to a steady stream of high damage. Tempests and Hurricanes with artillery form the bulk of the fleet.
