Are you a player determined to make everything and anything work? A veritable space-MacGyver when it comes to the computer you want to play on? Then we have a competition for you.
We want to see your badly optimized computer setup that has no business running EVE Online - but still does! This includes the hardware in the machine used to run EVE Online and the actual battle-station itself, within health and safety regulations of course.
A CRT monitor sitting on an open, flat computer case using an on-board graphics card on an outdated motherboard, all standing on a table made out of cardboard boxes? Please snap a few pictures with different angles and send us an email with them to email@example.com, along with the hardware specifications of it and video proof that you manage to play EVE Online on it (by undocking or mining for example. Bonus points if you manage to destroy others!), and you might just be the winner in this competition! Subject of the email should be Potato PC Setup, and remember to detail your user name and character name.
You can also share your creations and achievements in the field of Potaputer-Science™ right here in this thread!
Submissions are open now, and we will accept them until 23:59 UTC on Thursday, September 17th. The winners will be revealed on Friday the 18th, selected by a professional critics of computer setups.
The winners will receive the following prizes:
1st place: 3 SKINs (1x Eden’s Hunters SKIN of your choice, 1x Helmatt’s Harriers SKIN of your choice & 1x Oasis of Faith SKIN of your choice) and 1500 PLEX.

May the worst (functional) computer win!
