Imperium News intends to be the voice of the Imperium in the media, much like the Voice of America. We’re working to create a platform where our people can both read and write articles of interest to our community, both as staff writers and enabling ad-hoc blogging through the User Submission system. We publish writing on a broad array of topics of interest to our people – game news, science news, opinion pieces, book reviews, fiction, humor, as well as highlighting opposing voices from players outside our organization.

THE IMPERIUM STRIKES BACK – A WEEK AT WAR

The Imperium war machine rumbles, and Tribute is on fire. Reports of activity on the war front are coming in to the INN News Desk quickly with interesting stories happening every day. So much action has happened already, it’s hard to believe that this deployment is really only a week old. We’ll do a roundup of some of the news that has been covered here, as well as some smaller reports that have come in from the front lines.Read More

THE WAR IN THE NORTH: A HORDLING’S PERSPECTIVE

I was a member of both the capital fleet and the subcap fleet in the first battle of Hakonen this week. The ti-di was horrendous, and even though my dread alt was denied tasting blood, my battleship was far more involved. Horde’s head FC for both Tuesday and Thursday was Capri Sun SUPERFOODS on loan from Pandemic Legion. While I do genuinely enjoy the guy personally, he also happens to be a very competent FC. Horde’s subcap group formed up in their home system and had to make the trek all theRead More

INN: DEVBLOG – MOONMINING CHANGES

CCP released a devblog today, July 19, to give out more information about the moon mining changes coming this winter. The blog reiterates what we already know about the moon mining. Each moon can only have 1 refinery on it for extraction at any given time. The time from starting up the refinery to extraction being complete will be up to the initiator and can vary from one week to several weeks.  During this process, chunks of moon leave the surface and travel towards the structure. This is visible to observers.Read More

INN: TWITCH CCP Q&A: REACTION

THE STREAM: Today, CCP held a Twitch stream which was advertised as a “Q&A” stream. While there was very little interaction with the audience, which has probably left a majority of the audience coming away from the stream with a “what the hell did I just watch” attitude, it can be argued that today’s stream answered a lot of questions, and promises much more for the future. The real hero of the Q&A, however, turned out to be CCP Rise, who single-handedly fielded question after question in the chat afterRead More

INN: A LOOK AT PROJECT DISCOVERY’S EXOPLANETS

SO WHAT IS PROJECT DISCOVERY? Project Discovery is moving forward and bringing a new ‘mini-game’ to New Eden. While the previous iteration of Project Discovery had players looking to the microscopic levels to analyze cells, the next phase will be looking up at the stars. The details of this next step are in the Exoplanets devblog and there is a mass test on the Singularity server scheduled for July 4. For those of you—like myself—who are impatient though, you can start trying things out on the test server now.Read More

INN: SINGULARITY: THE STRATEGIC CRUISER UPDATE

The strategic cruiser. These ships have dominated the EVE meta for years. In today’s New Eden, they occupy the apex position for subcapital ships in engagements of any size. The only real competitor they have in terms of popularity and overall effectiveness is the Angel Cartel’s Machariel-class battleship. And like the Machariel, they’re widely considered over-powered. As a result, CCP is also taking steps to correct this imbalance.Read More
