So Fanfest 2014 is up and running and I’ve been reading blog posts coming out of Reykjavik and caught bits and pieces on CCP’s Twitch Channel. I’m a touch envious of those in attendance, although if I was to be honest with myself, I’m not sure I would enjoy being there. I dislike travelling, crowds, hype, and frankly even just being out of my comfort zone.
I’m a hermit for a reason.
I thought seriously about using a PLEX to purchase the CCP Fanfest HD Stream package, but in the end my schedule this weekend and time zone differences meant I wouldn’t be able to make the most of it. I’ll have to wait for sessions to hit Youtube and the flurry of Dev Blogs and Media releases post Fanfest.
I was disappointed to hear 2 of the 6 new hulls suggested at were indeed Alliance Tournament prize ships. Frankly those are not new hulls. They are not even exciting, aside for a few rich collectors and the handful of Alliances in with a serious chance of winning the Tournament.
There hasn’t seemed to be anything too exciting raised so far. I am not trying to be negative, but at the back of my mind I’ve been feeling that EVE has had too much iteration over the last few years, and not enough new “wow” moments. I’ve been hoping CCP announce something this year which really get people enthused. (And Dust and Valkyrie announcements are not what I am talking about.)
