A Farewell To Eve: The Complete 5 Year Spree

From The RPS Archives

Today, a rummage in the RPS archives brings up Jim's fond farewell to Eve Online from late 2009, documenting his dramatic half-decade as a leading member of a successful corp. He's seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Oasa. He watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tenerifis Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to repost.

Part 1: Nova - the founding of StateCorp and the path to power.

Part 2: Rise and Fall - The days of trolling solo players, and the slow death of a coalition.

Part 3: Fountain - It was the best of times, it was the best of times. Finding purpose, defending the innocent and achieving infamy.

Part 4: The End - All good things... Why Eve was and is "profoundly significant in the landscape of gaming," why Jim had to stop playing, plus videos of space mega-war.

For other brave pilots, the saga does of course continue. Whatever will the future hold for CCP's game of ships?
