developer CCP Games
typically has a presence at major industry events like the upcoming Game Developers Conference
, but the session that's caught our attention so far isn't
a presentation from the devs -- it's actually from a member of the EVE
community. That GDC 2010 speaker is Alexander Gianturco -- better known to most EVE Online
players as Goonswarm's spymaster, The Mittani
. Others may know the infamous player as the "Sins of the Solar Spymaster
columnist at Ten Ton Hammer
. Gianturco will give a lecture at GDC 2010 titled "Uniquely Ruthless: The Espionage Metagame of EVE Online
" that will give an insider's perspective on the political machinations possible in the game's sandbox of New Eden.
His talk will hit on topics like the disbanding of the Band of Brothers alliance
, how the espionage metagame has changed over time, and of course the myriad aspects of EVE
's sandbox that allow players to even engage in such pursuits. The session description for Uniquely Ruthless: The Espionage Metagame of EVE Online
states that Gianturco's presentation should be of general interest to anyone with a love of spies and their stories.
