Any day but Friday Dev Watch 06/08/2012

A weekly post on Developer posts from the eve-o forums & other locations. Its not intended as a complete report on every dev post, but a selection of more interesting or funny posts made. Either way I’m hoping it might help some people cut through the swathes of bad posting on the eve-o forums to find the interesting tip-bits. enjoy!


Yeah yeah I know not Friday, there was so little since wednesday it just didnt seem worth it. fair amount more now so lets dig in:

CCP Punkturis

CCP Affinity
posted in quite an inspired thred about revolutionising PvE; although its worth noting she lays down support but cannot directly jump into developing it.

In the same thread she also agreed that having your race/faction matter in terms of PvE would be great

Eve Online Personality test update!

Hey all, a little while ago I posted a nice image which allowed players to find their true personality type in Eve Online. Due to popular demand I have now remastered this test into a javascript/html format which should make it all the better!

You can now find the new test: here
or by clicking the “About… You” page over there —>

Have fun!

Friday Dev watch 01/08/2012

A weekly post on Developer posts from the eve-o forums & other locations. Its not intended as a complete report on every dev post, but a selection of more interesting or funny posts made. Either way I’m hoping it might help some people cut through the swathes of bad posting on the eve-o forums to find the interesting tip-bits. Enjoy!

This week’s Dev Watch has been rather delayed by illness. I realise that this is a few weeks in a row where Friday dev watch hasn’t been on Friday, but if I relegate it to just “Dev Watch” Ill never do it! So for now you’ll just have to put up with it!
