EON Issue 27
Posted by noise on Sunday, 29 April 2012
I have my copy of EON in front of me. The Dust 514 guy on the front is taunting me about not having access to the beta! Obviously from the cover there is content about Dust 514 in. Plenty of it! And, oh, Mandrill!
It's quite amusing and amazing that the inside front cover advert is now redundant. The Lego Rifter, a whole page asking to support it. As we all know, the support is no longer needed due to the magnificent support of the EVE Online players and devs. There's a chat with the creator of that particular Rifter model in this issue too.
Many say they don't like Riverini but everybody knows of EVE News 24! There is a nice write up in this issue including a QA with Riverini himself.
Our master at arms Kirith Kodachi's Testflight this issue is all about the Assault Frigates since the changes. I've not actually looked at or flown an Assault Frigate since the buff so it'll be an interesting read when I get round to it.
Our favourite statition CCP Diagoras gets grilled in this issue. Find out where his CCP name comes from.
Oh, and apparently, issue 28 will be published on my birthday!

In Dust 514 We Trust
In Dust 514 We Trust
Chemical Brothers-inspired headlines abound as we at last get some shoot-in-face time with CCP's first console game, DUST 514. With 12 pages devoted to the PS3 shooter, we first follow the adventures of Team Haggis, winner of the inaugural Dust tournament, before procrastinating over the game's lengthy feature list and the implications the release will have for EVE Online, New Eden and the wider universe of games. The parallel journey into a familiar world starts here!
Assault Ship Testflight
Having repackaged the Tier-3 battlecruisers, EON's chief test pilot Kirith Kodachi fits and flies out another batch of Crucible vessels - EVE's venerable assault ships. Between them these heavy-hitting frigates have received, thanks to January's 1.1 release, the most eagerly-approved upgrades since the word 'iteration' was invented. All eight ships are given the full Testflight treatment in one of the biggest round-ups in EON history.
CSM6 In Review
Seleene, the latest to head the Council of Stellar Management, looks back over the events of the last 12 months from the above-and-behind view reserved for the privileged members of EVE's player-elected council. He takes us through the record-breaking vote a year ago, into meetings with CCP, past the so-called Summer of Rage and occupation of Jita and through the redemptive expansion known as Crucible. It's been quite a journey.
Understanding Time Dilation
Just as there's more to time travel than a DeLorean and 1.21 gigawatts of electricity, Time Dilation is more than just a slo-mo switch the developers casually throw when the hamsters get tired. To understand TiDi we must understand the nature of lag itself, which is actually best illustrated by visiting the bar and getting some beers in.
