Tyrannis: a Planetary Interaction Contest - Win a PLEX and a CCP Dev Interview!


Back in early August of 2009, I ran a contest based on "Planetary Control" where I asked you how you saw planetary interaction being implemented within EVE, how it should be approached and what possibilities this would open up to the capsuleers.

Remember, back then DUST 514 was barely a hint and a rumor which some of us had had a glimpse of at Fanfest 2008. The contest had a great turn out with over 15 participants. The winner of the event, @Xiphos83 (yes that's the same guy who had the idea for the Wallpaper contest) got a chance to interview CCP Hammerhead during a special edition of MicroWarpCast. The interview was a success and at lot of fun to put together.

Fast forward to today and Tyrannis, CCP's Planetary Interaction expansion is less than 2 months away. With all the creative juices in full swing within the EVE Blogging Community, this was the right time to focus all this energy once more! And so, I'm pleased to announced another Planetary Interaction Contest!

This contest will require that you use every implant available to you, that you put your thinking caps on and come up with something truly original, beyond what we know about Tyrannis, and look to a bright future for the elite capsuleer population. Let the Gods be Gods!

What we know of Tyrannis so far as been learned through the Dev Blogs of CCP t0rfifrans, of CCP Hammerhead and CCP Chronotis, and some of the interviews that were given (Ten Ton Hammer for example). But we've also gotten a few glimpse for players who've taken peaks on SiSi and have reported back to us!

But I'd like to pick your brains and what some of you can imagine.
Tyrannis will see some new industrial and planetary interaction opportunities like we've never seen before in New Eden. It's a step in linking EVE Online and DUST514 as well. So I need you to write what you believe are the short and/or long term consequences of this development, in terms of the new industrial capacity it presents to players, in terms of the opportunities for pirates, for industrialists, for sovereignty, etc. Surprise us!
Out of all the articles, I'll pick the 5 best, all of which will win a PLEX, courtesy of CCP Games! Out of those 5, one will be randomly picked to interview a CCP Dev who's been working on Tyrannis!

The Rules
Write a blog post on Tyrannis' and its Industrial consequences to EVE, wherever you see them. Submit your article in the comments below between April 3rd 2010 and April 10 2010 (midnight EDT). The winners will be announced by April 17th 2010. The 5 winners will each receive a PLEX and one will be randomly chosen to interview a CCP Dev during an up coming unannounced (as of yet) podcast.

God luck to all and fly safe!
