Blog Banter 45: Propaganda

Welcome to the 45th Blog Banter, the EVE Online community discussion which stumbles from topic to topic like a drunk looking for an empty cubicle.

If you're new to the Blog Banters, don't be afraid to get stuck in with your opinion. If you're unsure how it all works, check out previously completed discussions in the Blog Banter archive or read this post for a brief explanation.

Bad UIs Cost Lives

This edition of the Blog Banter is forged from suggestions by #tweetfleet members @KaedaMaxwell, @RocWieler and @TigerlilyFenix.

In a socially-driven game environment such as EVE Online's, everyone has an agenda. CCP promotes its products and has an army of volunteers to do the same; corporations and alliances deliver entertaining recruitment drives, CSM election candidates solicit for voter favour, bloggers and podcasters opine to their audiences.

In this intricate web of communication, influence and control, what part does propaganda play in your game?

Banter on.
