A Snapshot of Eve Online

I thought it would be a nice idea to do a weekly 'snapshot' of Eve Online. But not in screenshots. No, it will be a snapshot of the concerns that are being discussed on the Eve Online forums.

The rules of these snapshots are pretty simple:
  1. Only in the following categories: General Discussion, Warfare & Tactics, Crime and Punishment, and Features and Ideas. These categories, I believe, will be where the majority of interest and discussions about the game reside.
  2. Only those topics that are on the FIRST page of each category, and which are at least 3 or 4 pages long, will be included. This should reflect the lengthy discussions that are happening at the time. (I won't include stupid topics.)
  3. I will not include those discussions which have been made 'sticky'.
  4. I won't be exploring the discussions, but will instead list them and link to them. As I said, it's a 'snapshot', not an exploration. If you wish to see the discussions yourself, you can click on the links and see what is exciting people enough to discuss it.
If you have any suggestions as to what else you think should be included, please let me know in the Comments.

Let's begin with this week's snapshot.

General Discussion
Warfare & Tactics
Crime and Punishment
Features and Ideas
And there you have it. A snapshot of the main issues that people are discussing about Eve Online today. See you here next week!


  1. That's an absolutely brilliant idea and a great selection of posts! Definitely worth keeping it going.

  2. Great idea, BC! I tend to read C&P only unless pointed to useful posts in other forums by someone else.

  3. BC! I just spent 1 hour reading this stuff. Great idea! Much love

  4. Wonderful idea! I hate filtering through the CCP forums (fora?), but it was nice to dip into a few of the threads you linked.

    Of course, this means you are setting yourself up to have to wade through the chaff to grab a few tasty grains! I hope that doesn't induce a medical condition or lead to burnout...

  5. Thanks for the comments guys. I'm glad you like the idea.

    @Jaggins I intend doing this only once a week (every Sunday, my time), and only the 1st page of each category. Minimal wading required. :)
