Have you ever dreamed of what EVE Online could be, or should be? Ever wondered what EVE could be in a 10 years, 5 years, or even next year? Well here's your chance to prove that you've got that game designer flame burning in you! It's little contest, simple in its elegance, and pleasurable in its rewards!
Looking ahead to 2010, come up with either realistic predictions of new EVE features, or wild speculations of what might happen in game during the course of the year.
What we're looking for here are the best, most accurate and entertaining, well constructed pieces of speculative reporting ever concocted about EVE Online, And the best 10 will make into the next issue of EON magazine, which comes out early January. Not only that, but I've been told that for those winners attending the next Fanfest, the folks at MMM Publishing will even chip in a beer token!
These 10 best articles will be hand-picked by myself and EON Editor, Mr Zapatero himself!
Here are the Rules and Regulations:
- Your article has to be between 350 and 400 words. No more. No less.
- Stick to one prediction / one subject per 400 words.
- No formatting (no lists, bullet points etc).
- Take one in-game screenshot to illustrate your prediction. If it's in-space, please have it as high-res/spiffeh as possible.
- The 10 articles picked will each cover different subject (no more than 1 article about Incarna will be picked. We're looking for variety here!).
- Write your article on your blog, post the URL in the comments below.
- Your article gets published in the January 2010 EON issue.
- You get a free copy of that EON issue
- One FREE beer token for next year's EVE Fanfest
The contest starts today and ends on November 30th EDT. The 10 winners will be announced the following week!
Here's a limited list of ideas to get your fingers twitching on your keyboards:
