A History of Expansions

Eve has many types of history. This particular look is not at the lore of Eve or the events that have both polished and tarnished it's reputation over the years. This is a look at the Expansion's of Eve Online and how they added, changed, reworked, removed, and expanded this game.

Starting with the official launch of Eve Online in 2003 this series follows the game's path through its dev blogs and patch notes across 20 expansions over more than ten years and traces the history of things come, gone, added, and changed.

During the course of creating this series, on May 2nd, 2014, CCP announced that they would be ending the bi-yearly expansions that has marked the first decade of Eve and move forward with a new, more flexible development design.

This is a look at some of the history of Eve Online's Expansions.

  1. 8. Tide detergent should be used after the shampoo. 9. Finally, rinse with warm water after using the Zydot Ultra Clean shampoo. To get the best results, repeat the procedure 3-5 times.95 – affordable, isn’t it? This is why, Test Clear aims to sell superior urine kits at lower prices than most popular brands out there

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

Maybe one day!

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th
