This is my rig. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

I recently realised that although rigs have been around for a good couple years, I have yet to even consider training for them, let alone fitting them. But with the recent (okay, maybe not so recent) news about multi-sized rigs, I’ve started thinking about the pros (and maybe cons?) of investing in a few rigs.

Which brings me to the question of this post;

Do rigs benefit PvP and/or PvE enough to make them in indispensible part of a fit?

Having never fitted any rigs before, I’m not really in a position to answer this question. So make sure to let me know your views in this subject!

Video: Are you sane enough?

No Comments »

There’s a new EVE video making the rounds, EVE: Test of Sanity. I dare any of you to watch this without laughing at least once. It’s a tough feat to perform.

For those of you familiar with EVE Hell (and those of you who aren’t should definitely check it out), you’ll notice that it’s quite similar and while it’s no EVE Hell, it is pretty damn good.
Thanks to Wensley for sending the link my way via Twitter.

Apocrypha New Fitting UI

No Comments »

There’s a great video on YouTube (and below) explaining the new ship fitting UI currently on SiSi (the test server) that you should all check out if you haven’t experienced it first hand.

Be sure to check out some of his other EVE-based videos. He has videos showing off a lot of the new features and there’s some T3 ship combinations in there too, which you should also check out.

New Two Minute Trinity Trailer!

No Comments »

A few hours ago, CCP released a second trailer for their upcoming Trinity expansion and I have to say it’s absolutely breathtaking. I knew it looked amazing but I didn’t think it would look this amazing. When seeing the “transformation” from old graphics to new graphics, my mouth literally dropped open and I let out a little “Wow…”. Even when seeing the Minmatar ships, and that’s saying something. ;)

You can find the SD trailer at Gametrailers.com here, or if you’d prefer to watch the HD version (and why wouldn’t you?) you can find that here.

I seriously cannot wait to play (or even just see) the new Trinity expansion. If all goes to plan, CCP have said that it should be coming next week; if not, I’m sure it’ll be coming soon™.

By the way, CCP, why on earth haven’t we seen a Myrmidon with improved graphics yet? Once I see that, I’ll be a happy man; but I guess I’m going to have to wait until the release. :(

EVE Online: Trinity Teaser

1 Comment »

I realise I’m a couple days late with this, one of the many drawbacks of being busy is that I don’t get to write any entries. So, onto the post.

At the EVE Fan Fest, CCP showed a teaser trailer for the new Trinity upgrade.

You can find the higher quality version at Stage6; but if that’s not enough you can find a 16:9, 1920 by 1080 version at EVE Files.

I know I’ve said this a lot to a lot of people over the last few months but I really cannot wait until Trinity is released. It’ll be like an early Christmas for me, except I’ll know exactly what I’m getting and it’ll be awesome anyway. Wow, I must be geekier than I thought if I’m comparing a MMO patch to Christmas… Ah well, . ;)

Thanks go to CrazyKinux for finding the videos (and linking to them on his blog which led to me finding them). :D
