Blog Banter: EVE Quick Matches


In times past Crazy Kinux would email a question to the EVE Blogosphere and many bloggers would share their views on a particular subject. Alas, the Blogfather is no longer performing this service and whilst Rixx Javix has adopted The Blog Pack, I don't believe he has any plans to fire off blog banters. However, it is a great concept and I see no reason for the tradition to fall by the wayside.

So I am writing this post in the hope that I can inspire some bloggers to throw their hat into the ring on a subject that a few of us have been discussing. I hope that the following paragraph might incite a few bloggers to re-ignite the Blog Banter flame. So if you've got a blog, feel free to pitch in.

EVE Quick Matches

Kirith Kodachi recently discussed the idea of what a World of Tanks style quick-match element would bring to EVE Online. Would the opportunity for a quick combat interest you? How could it be implemented? Could it be done without having a negative impact on existing gameplay elements? Or does such a concept have no place in EVE?

  2. Great Banter question! Just one thing, are you taking over the blog banters for every month? CK used to mail people that were interested, like 1-2 weeks beforehand. You should probably try and get the blog banter mailing list from CK so you can mail people to give them the heads up about the new blog banter coming (it really helps). Thanks!

  3. Well my main motivation was to get a discussion going on this particular topic and a Blog Banter seemed the best way to go.

    It seems a little presumptuous of me to assume that I would have the community's blessing to do it on a regular basis, however if nobody has any objections I don't mind giving it a go.

    I understand that I did sneak this one under the table a little, but without knowing who would be interested I felt that it would just grow organically. I'm ecstatic with the responses so far.

    Getting CK's mailing list, if available, is one way to go in order to forewarn people in future, however the blogging landscape has changed quite a lot recently so it may be worth starting afresh with those who engage the concept this time around. Word seems to be spreading reasonably well.

    I'll look into getting a mailing list together and a more effective process if that's what people want.
