Hey CCP lore guys,
I started EVE in 2009. I was “off and on”. Got serious about the game in late 2011. You know what got me really hooked on the game? Reading “The Empyrean Age” and seeing how the things in the game (Factional Warfare, Incursions, Sleepers/Jove) all tied into a massive, arcing storyline - and feeling like I was somehow a part of it. As I continued to play (through the real “summer of rage”), you guys began to do more with the lore, releasing “Scope” videos about various in-game events and player actions. Things began to slow a bit but then the Drifters content came out and things got exciting, and now we’re in a bit of a lull. And that’s okay. We always have lulls inbetween times of lore cuz you need to develop the game and the stories.
But now we’re getting Upwell structures (storyline with ORE, Serpentis, and SOE) which are tied to Drifters annnnd people are talking more about “New Space”. This is a really exciting time and the playerbase (the ones who aren’t raging over Rorqual changes) are poised in anticipation.
I think another book (a mainline book, like Templar One was, not a sideline book like Burning Life) is in order. There’s some cool stuff with Rogue Drones on the horizon I think. But it feels like storylines never get closure. Give us more lore. We love your story.
