Have Clone, Will Travel - a new EVE column


Earlier today, my first feature was published over at Massively.com. The column, called Have Clone, Will Travel, is of course a play on words on Robert Heinlein's wonderful science fiction novel Have Space Suit - Will Travel. My first article, Ambulation in the EVE tutorial, is about how Ambulation could be used to improve the current EVE Tutorial.

Do not worry, I'll still be posting here on a regular basis, daily if time permits. The fine folks at Massively.com have given me an opportunity I could not refuse. For now, my column will appear weekly, but that may change to bi-weekly if RL gets in the way (summer will soon be upon us here is eastern Canada).

So head over, and let me know your thoughts!

congratz on getting the gig, I applied but I don't think I'm quite prolific enough at the moment, and I tend to float between games (MMO and otherwise). Good column too, starting players off in stations is a great idea. I'm hoping that CCP will go into some detail as to how you get into your ship, maybe with a one off animation or something. I've been playing for nigh on 5 years and I didn't find out that you were literally wired into your ship till about 18 months ago.

When I first heard about Ambulation I wasn't really thrilled, but it sounds better as I get to hear more about it. They are really going all-out with this, and knowing CCP it will be cool. They know what we (the players) like and I'm sure ambulation will be loaded with coolness.

Making the tutorial more friendly would be a great start. If they actually make corporate offices functional, with message boards and such, that would be neat too.
